A spread is a preset pattern or a template guiding the placement of the cards. It defines how many cards to use, where each one goes, and what each one means. It is within this template that the meanings of the cards come together.
The most important feature of a spread is the fact that each position has a unique meaning that color the interpretation of whatever card falls in that spot.
Tarot spreads can be any size or pattern. A spread can also contain just one card. Most spreads contain between three and fifteen cards. The weaving of a story from the cards in a spread is the most exciting and creative aspect of a Tarot reading. It is an art, but there are many guidelines you can follow.
