The Lovers Tarot Spread
This spread is for love, in all its forms.
Shuffle the deck and lay out the cards per the diagram at right.
Card 1: This card represents your love of yourself, self-love and self-image, representing strengths and weaknesses, or issues to get through.
Card 2: This card represents your love for others, your family, friends, lovers. Can represent a specific person and how you react to him or her, or how you see others, or a relationship.
Card 3: This card represents another factor or person, something not accounted for, because these situations are never simple! Can be a love triangle, or a difficult choice.
Card 4: This card represents strange Fate, or larger currents and directions, situations out of your control. Also represents the love the Universe holds for you, and your trust (or lack of faith) in that.
Cards 1, 2 and 4 are forms of love you will always have and that are not dependent on others: your love for yourself, your love for others, and the love the Universe has for you.
