How to Use Tarot When Times are Hard


When life is hard, you might want to figure out how to know what is going to happen in the future. You can look at tarot cards and get some advice that can help you when times are hard. Here are some things to do and not to do when it comes with tarot cards:

Look at Yourself

Take time to look at your emotional, mental and physical needs when you use the tarot cards but don’t use the tarot cards to make decisions. When you are going through something hard, you need to make sure that you aren’t making big decisions right now. You might be fearful of what the future holds, and you don’t want to have to put all of your power into having a reading.

If you are dealing with a strong battle, take time to step away from the cards for a time. Come back to them in the future after you have let the fear go and you are ready to move forward.

Hard Cards

Look at all of the cards and even the ones that are hard to understand can work into your life. The cards that are hard can show you want to depend on and help you to do shadow work. Look at the different themes and see which ones are recurring and which ones seem to be repeating. This can be clues into what is going on in your life.

Don’t ignore red flags that the tarot cards are giving you. When you choose to avoid messages that the cards are giving you, you will come to a point where the cards won’t be able to help you like they could. These cards can mean you need to make a change in your life.

Use the tarot cards to help yourself in a spiritual, emotional and mental way. The cards can help you to move on if you are grieving or hurting. On the other hand, don’t use the cards to check on your ex. Let your ex be your ex and step away from them and the cards for a while.

Tarot Spreads for Hard Times

Whenever you are choosing to do a reading, there are some different spreads that you can use. You don’t have to use the same spreads over and over but if you choose to use the 5-card spread, here is what it can mean:

  • Card 1: Find out what your body needs at the moment.
  • Card 2: Find out what your emotions need at the moment.
  • Card 3: Find out what your soul needs at the moment.
  • Card 4: Find out who is your friend and ally at this present time.
  • Card 5: Find out where your journey is going to take you.

No matter what kind of spread that you choose to do, make sure that you are doing it with an open mind and an open heart. By doing a tarot spread and by looking at the cards, you can find out things in your life that you might not have known.
