A Tarot reading may be something that you only consider doing every couple of weeks or months. Once you learn to read Tarot cards for yourself, and no longer have to rely on visiting a psychic, you can perform more regular readings. Considering the Tarot card of the day is one way to not only improve your reading ability but also to prepare yourself for whatever life might have in store for you. We’re going to explore some of the other benefits before going on to walk you through how to do a daily Tarot reading.
What is the purpose of tarot cards? – The Benefits
Let’s dive right in and begin exploring the benefits. But first, consider why you carry out readings at all. Is it so you can improve your reading ability? Is it so that you can explore your own spirituality and spiritual abilities? Or do you just wish to learn more about your place in the world, perhaps in relation to your past, present, or future?
Many people forget that carrying out your own Tarot reading improves all three of these areas. The problem is that if you’re waiting weeks or months before you can practice again, you’re allowing yourself time to forget what you’ve learned.
This is where the idea of the Tarot card of the day comes into play. By performing a daily Tarot reading, you’re not only practicing far more often, but you’re also making it a lot easier for yourself.

Consider this: if you’re still a beginner and you make a mistake during your interpretation, you might have to wait weeks or months before you realize it.
By using the Tarot card of the day, you can make notes related to your reading and then as the day progresses you’ll be able to easily notice what you got right and what needs a little more work.
There is less pressure on your abilities but it’s also easier to notice your progress. But how do you learn how to do a daily Tarot reading?
The Spreads of the Tarot card of the Day
As with any Tarot reading, deciding which spread to use is an important factor, as well as how to shuffle Tarot Cards.
There are two spreads that work really well for performing the Tarot card of the day reading. These are the 3-card spread and the one card Tarot spread.
We’re going to explore each of these in detail to give you a better idea of why you may choose to use one spread over the other.
The 3-Card Spread
So, this may not involve just one card, but it offers readers a wider area to interpret and often provides deeper answers through offering information on a variety of different states or tenses.
For example, using a 3-card spread allows you to consider the past, the present, and the future. Depending on the question, you may find that you’re using each card to represent the body, the mind, and the soul.
The beauty of the 3-card spread is that it leaves itself open for interpretation, meaning that you’re not tied down to viewing any card as being a specific aspect. When it comes to the Tarot card of the day, the 3-card spread has its pros and cons.
For starters, it offers you the opportunity to ask deeper or more specific questions. These may relate to the day but still allow the cards to reveal information that connects to previous days or days that have yet to pass.
For beginners though, this can lead to some confusion. The 3-card spread often requires different levels of interpretation as you need to understand the individual meanings of each card but also how they tie into one another to create a larger meaning.
One Card Tarot Spread
As you may have guessed from its name, the one card Tarot spread involves just one card. You can still ask specific questions, but your answer is going to be more focused and concentrated. Unlike the 3-card spread, you’ll have to determine whether the dealt card refers to the present moment, the past, or the future.
Luckily, whenever you’re asking about the coming day, you can generally suspect that the card is about the future. You can also word your question in such a way that the answer will only be in relation to the day’s events.
If you don’t have any specific questions in mind, try asking something quite open e.g. ‘what can I expect to happen today?’ or ‘what knowledge do I need to know to prepare me for today?’ No matter what card you turn over, allow yourself to consider its deeper meaning. Don’t jump to conclusions or rush your interpretation.
For the Tarot of the day, the best way to improve your spiritual abilities is to note down your interpretation. Write down the question you asked, the spread you used, and the card itself. You then want to make a note of your interpretation. You can use bullet points, note down the essentials, or write a thorough summary. Do whatever feels natural to you and learn from your experiences as you progress. There are some other steps you can take to improve though.
The Day’s Events and the Tarot Card of the Day
When starting out, some people will carry their selected Tarot card of the day around with them. That way, they can constantly be reminded of their interpretation and will notice all of the ways the card predicted how the day would play out. It also allows you to tap into the card’s energy and feel its connections to the universe, almost as if it’s tugging on cosmic strings and cosmic energy.
Whenever you see something that you feel is connected to the card, even in a rather vague way, make a note of it. At the end of the day, you can reflect on your interpretation of the card and compare it to the notes you made. You’ll be able to get a better sense of what the card was referring to. If you got anything completely wrong, make a note of that to. Don’t view it as making a mistake, but rather as an opportunity to learn.
You may be tempted to throw these notes away, but there is a better alternative. If you keep all of your notes, you’ll create a database for yourself that covers all the cards and all the different types of reading. You’ll be able to look back and see not only how you’ve improved, but where you discovered new aspects to the cards in relation to your life.
