However, sometimes it can be hard to understand what is truly in our hearts. Of course, science has some answers, giving us an understanding of the chemicals that get released when we are with somebody we really fancy.
Still, there’s a deeper spiritual side when it comes to relationships that we can sometimes find hard to comprehend. But, tarot cards are here to help!
In this article, I will teach you about the relationship tarot spreads, how you can use the cards to guide your heart, and what different cards may mean for you!

Relationship Tarot Spreads
No matter how secure and comfortable your relationship is, it’s always good to get a second opinion from the cards. Tarot cards can highlight any deep feelings and conflict that you might be repressing, or they can show you how your partner is feeling about you.
I recommend checking in with the cards every few weeks for guidance and insight into your relationship. This will allow you to deepen the connection with your partner and understand your own emotions and feelings more clearly.
So here are some great relationship spreads that can help you with this.

If you are wondering about the future of you and your partner, this simple one-card relationship tarot spread will give you insight into what is next.

Breakup Tarot Spread
A breakup in a relationship can be a really traumatic time, and you might feel as if you have wasted so much time on this one person! However, everything happens for a reason and there was meaning behind the relationship, even though it ended.
When a relationship is over, I believe that it is really important to look at what you have learned from the relationship and how you can grow from it.
It is also great to celebrate the good times you had with this person. To do this, it can be helpful to turn to the cards to get a better understanding of everything.
This is a three-card spread. The first card pulled refers to what went well in the relationship. The second reflects why it did not work out, and the third refers to what you can learn from the relationship.
Let’s say that you turned over the Three of Cups for the first card. This card suggests that you and your former partner did have a lot of fun together! You had good conversations, you might have partied a lot, and they might have helped you creatively. Sounds fun, but what about the bad in the relationship?
Perhaps you pull the Seven of Wands. In regards to love, this card definitely suggests that there were emotional walls put up and a lack of commitment from one or more participants.
But everything happens for a reason, and the relationship did not work out. So, what can be learned from the experience?
Let’s say you pull Temperance. This card refers to harmony and balance. Maybe your relationship was a bit on the intense side, or there was an imbalance of emotions?
This card suggests that you have learned what you need from your partner, and what you will look for in your next relationship to keep it harmonious!

Now, I am going to talk you through a relationship tarot spread that you and your partner can do together to develop your connection.

5 Card Compatibility Spread
I think everybody who has been in a relationship has had that dreaded question cross their mind. The one that asks, “Are we really that compatible?”.
When it comes to finding the perfect partner, you need to be compatible. You have to share the same beliefs and goals in life, or it just will fall apart as quickly as it began!
Thankfully, you can save yourself the heartbreak and turn to the cards to find out just how compatible you and your partner really are. This five-card spread can be done with new relationships or long-term relationships that might be under a little pressure.

Tarot Spread for Relationships Meaning
As you’ve seen above, you can do a general relationship tarot spread, or you can ask specific questions. There are so many things that tarot reading can help with when it comes to relationships. Here are just a few!
Understanding You and Your Partner
Because relationships are so important in our lives, they need to be strong. However, conflict in a relationship is super common. In fact, I think that a relationship without any arguments is a red flag.
Communication is key within relationships and arguments need to occur to grow the strength and connection of the partnership.
In the face of conflict, we can turn to tarot cards to get a better understanding of what is going on in our relationship. We can ask the cards to provide us with insight into how our partner feels and how we feel. This means we can work on building the relationship and overcoming any conflict.
Seeing How Strong the Relationship Is
Have you got any doubts about your new relationship? Are you worried that your lover doesn’t like you as much as you like him or her?
A relationship tarot spread can give us insight into how strong a relationship is, especially a new one where you might not truly know if it is real or not! The cards can give you guidance and tell you where this relationship might go, and if the connection you feel is real.
Seeing If You Are Ready for the Next Step
A relationship is defined by milestones. The first date and the first kiss can be amazing experiences, making memories that last forever. Going official is another exciting milestone, and who can forget the first time when you say the words “I love you”?!
Some people want to move in with their partner or get married pretty quickly, others tend to take things slow. Everybody is different and there is no right or wrong with this stuff!
If you are thinking about the next step of your relationship, asking the tarot cards can really provide insight and understanding. They show you what you want deep down. Follow your intuition, and follow the Tarot!
Deciding If It’s Time to Call It Quits
Yes, tarot cards can also answer the question you might have been avoiding for weeks. Is it time to call off the relationship?
Sometimes a relationship is just not right, and you might be ignoring the signs and pretending that everything is okay. However, this will only cause greater anguish when you finally break up.
Part of me thinks that if you are asking the tarot cards if you should dump your partner, you probably know the answer already. However, the tarot cards can help you think clearly and understand the situation better. Only you and the cards truly know what is in your heart!
Discover What Is Next for Your Love life with a Relationship Tarot Spread
