When you draw a card spread for yourself or another person, whether using our online readings or your own cards at home, it’s always a good idea to establish the overall theme of the reading before interpreting the individual cards.
If you are including the trump (major arcana) cards in your reading, check how many of these cards show up in the spread. This will give you some idea of the gravity of the reading. A good rule of thumb is the more trumps, the greater the importance of the message. The things that will happen are going to be a big deal.
Also, notice which suit predominates: cups, swords, pentacles or wands? This will give an indication of the main theme of the reading. In general, pentacles refer to material or financial matters; cups refer to matters of the heart and emotions, swords relate to ideas, justice and stress, and wands are about enterprise and creativity.
Finally, all the cards in any spread can be read as a unit, with each card influencing, blending, and sometimes changing, the implications of another. As you link the cards together in a sentence, you will find the juxtaposition of several cards will express certain nuances and often create a sentence that describes the overall mood of the reading.
If you start your card readings by getting a sense of the overall mood in this way, you will find that this will really help you to interpret the individual cards correctly, and really help you get the most out of your readings.
