Using a Tarot Card Reading to Learn More About Your Soulmate
Tarot card readings can help guide us along our spiritual journey. We can ask questions relating to love, career, finances, spirituality, and much more. One common topic is soulmates. We often want to know when we will meet our soulmate, how we will find them, and the type of influence they’ll have over our lives.
Don’t worry if you’re still relatively new to Tarot card readings, as we’re going to explore how you can discover the answers to these questions. We’ll consider the nature of soulmates, the best and simplest soulmate Tarot spread to use, and how to interpret each card. But first, what is a soulmate?
What is a Soulmate?
When it comes to the notion of soulmates, entertainment media has led us to believe that they represent the purest form of a romantic partner. It’s the idea that you’ll meet someone, fall instantly in love, and live happily ever after. If this sounds like a fairy tale, that’s because it is.
Soulmates are actually a far more complex aspect of the universe, and their connection to us goes above and beyond romance. A soulmate can go by many different names: kindred spirit, soul pair, kindred soul, and more.
Everything is made up of energy: numbers, light, objects, animals, planets, people, and souls. Each soul is unique, but some souls possess more similar energy than others. A soulmate is a person whose journey, not just through life, but through the universe across multiple lifetimes, aligns with yours.
When you first encounter one another, you’ll feel a sense of familiarity, like meeting someone from your past. Kindred spirits can meet and simply enjoy their strong connection, but they can also help push the other to higher levels of spirituality.
They often share beliefs and practice the same types of spirituality. By exploring together and growing together, they forge a stronger bond, one which can help each person in different ways.
A soulmate can be romantic in nature, as that level of connection is difficult to ignore, but it’s not a necessary part of the relationship.
Soulmate Tarot Spread
Now that we have a better understanding of the term, we can consider the function of a soulmate Tarot spread. When it comes to Tarot cards, the spread is simply the layout of the cards during the reading. The spread represents the type of question that is being asked, as well as the depth of the answers being given.
For example, a one-card spread could give you an overview of the coming year, but a 12-card spread could do the same by providing a card for each month. The most common spread is the 3-card spread, and the example we’re going to look at is a variation of this.
Three cards are played, with each representing a different aspect of your soulmate. We’ll look at each in turn.
First Card – You
The first card in the soulmate Tarot spread represents ‘you’. It is symbolic of the type of person you are. It shows your current position in life, and perhaps more importantly, it highlights the actions that you may need to take in order to find your soulmate.
It’s not about changing who you are as a person, but rather it’s about focusing on your weaknesses in order to reach your true potential. It’s about embracing change and challenge in order to grow as a person.
So, you could say that this card shows you how to create opportunities within your life. The opportunity that just so happens to lead to your soulmate.
Let’s consider an example. Imagine that you play The Fool card as your first card of the soulmate Tarot spread. The Fool is often associated with new beginnings, and so if you’re the type of person to hesitate when it comes to making a decision, this card might suggest that a leap of faith is what you need.
Seizing the day may be the next step along your spiritual journey, a journey that also leads to your kindred spirit.
Second Card – The Encounter
When it comes to the second card, this one represents where you will find your soulmate. It can point to a physical location. For example, a card associated with healing (such as The Star) may point to a hospital, while one associated with education (such as The Hierophant) may point to a school.
However, it is more common for this card to highlight a situation that you’ll find yourself in. A perfect example is The Hermit card. Playing this as your 2nd card might suggest that you’ll be exploring nature, possibly meditating next to a lake. You’ll be soul-searching at the moment of encountering your soulmate.
If we continue with The Hermit example, we can see that the 2nd card in this spread doesn’t represent random situations you should force yourself into, but rather steps that you can take which benefit your spiritual journey anyway.
Ultimately, this card is an example of how both the Law of Averages and the Law of Attraction can benefit you in finding your soulmate.
Third Card – The Reaction
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. We like to think that all encounters with soulmates are positive, but sadly that isn’t the case. That’s not to say that the encounter won’t be educational and fulfilling overall, but sometimes two souls are either too similar or at slightly different points in their journey.
As such, the third card of the soulmate Tarot reading represents the reaction that meeting your soulmate will cause. Will it be positive? Will it be negative? In what ways will meeting your kindred spirit change your life?
It’s important to remain open-minded when playing this final card, as it can be easy to jump to conclusions. Fear and anxiety can be just as misleading as wishful thinking. For example, you might play Death.
This doesn’t indicate that your soulmate will harm you or lead you to an untimely end. Instead, it suggests that a chapter of your life will close. We sometimes worry about change, but when one door closes, another opens. Through grasping opportunity, we allow ourselves to be further guided by the universe.
