How to Meet The RIGHT One – Tarot Spread

Engagement Man and Woman in Cafe

One of the most common questions I get from clients is ‘When will I meet someone new?’ and if could have just one wish come true for all my lovely love and relationship clients, it would be that they would start askingHow Can I Meet the Right One?’ instead. Why? Because there are multiple problems with the first question:

  • Are you even ready to start dating? Many people ask if they will meet someone new straight after a break-up while still hoping Mr/Ms Wrong will return, but in too much pain to cope with time on their own (which is what they really need at this stage).
  • If you do start dating before you are over your ex (and especially if you are still in touch with them), you will simply attract more of the same.
  • Someone? Just anyone then? Because unless you get specific about what you want/need from a relationship, you will get what you wish for… Like anybody who comes along that you happen to have chemistry with. To some of us that can be quite a few people and out of all those people we have chemistry with, there might be someone we should be holding out for because with them we have the other bits too… like emotional, spiritual and intellectual compatibility.
  • The future is not set in stone. The ‘When’ is always iffy at best. If you are told you will meet someone in the next six months and settle for that as Absolute Truth by taking your Internet Dating profile down and turning down invites to social events because some psychic told you it will happen, then of course nothing will happen. In a few instances, there are fated encounters and while they do show up in a reading, the timing for those is still wibbely-wobbely like all the timey-wimey stuff.

Do you see now why asking ‘How?’ is a much better idea? The ‘How?’ addresses internal and external aspects and helps you make the most of opportunities coming your way. You will still have to be active and alert but at least you will know what to look out for and also, potentially, what healing work or adjustment you need to undertake emotionally first.

The How to Meet the RIGHT One – Tarot Spread

How to Meet the Right One Tarot Spread

  1. Am I ready to meet the Right One? The problem when you read for yourself is that this is the card you are most likely to want to misinterpret for yourself. Therefore I suggest you either pray for guidance and sleep on it before you go ahead with the rest of the reading or ask a trusted friend. You could even ask hypothetically while holding the card in front of your friend: “If someone asked ‘Am I ready to meet the Right One?’ and they got this card, would you say it looks like they are?”If the answer is ‘No,’ just wait a while to read on this again and focus on heart healing and the things you love instead.
  2. Where are we most likely to meet? This gives you clues about which hobbies and interests could lead to meeting the Right One, or if you are likely to meet via work (Pentacles). For meeting someone online, I usually get the Ace/Page of Swords, The Magician (Mercury) or The Star (Aquarius).
  3. What will be the nature of our initial connection? 9 of Cups indicates a shared sense of humour (laughter). 5 of Wands – a shared love for sports. The Moon – instantly feeling a deep emotional connection due to shared past lives, etc…
  4. What do I need to do more of to meet the Right One?
  5. What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the Right One?
  6. Show me something about them that will make them more recognisable when we first meet. This could be anything about the card that grabs your attention: a visual clue (hair colour etc), an astrological correspondence (Zodiac sign etc), or it could be something about the surroundings (seaside, a church, the forest etc).
  7. Show me my first challenge while this new relationship is in the early stages. It could be something internal or something caused by outer circumstances. For instance, if you suffer from abandonment issues, the cards could give you the heads up by showing you the 3 of Swords… or if you are generally indecisive, it could be the 2 of Swords… or if money matters play a major part from the start, one of the Pentacles cards… or the 8 of Wands could indicate that you are rushing in too fast. If it is a personal quality in the other person, you could expect a Court Card (other than your own significator) to show up here.The thing is, even with the Right One, things rarely go smoothly from the start and many potentially great relationships could trip you up on the first hurdle before you feel you know the other person properly. This is why it is better to have the heads up, so you won’t have to trigger your flight or fight response.

One final word of caution. Even if you are 100% certain that they are the Right One and everything in your reading is coming true, please, for the love of the Goddess, take it slow and get to know them as a friend first. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing this. A firm foundation isn’t laid (no pun intended) over night. Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself with dignity, integrity and respect… and your future partner will too.

Blessed Be!

  1. Hi Lisa,

    I just did a reading using this spread, and I’m a bit stuck in the interpretation of a couple of cards… Please help!

    1. 4 of Wands – Yes
    *2. Queen of Coins – Not quite sure what to make of a court card here.
    *3. King of Cups – It’s an emotional initial meeting?
    4. 3 of Swords – Gotta let go of the hurt and fear from the past and learn to trust that this man will love me and stand by my side.
    5. Ace of Cups – Do not depreciate myself. Know that I am loved, starting from my own heart with self-love
    *6. 5 of Cups – I know this person but it was a disappointing past? Or… I didn’t realize he’s right in front of me? Or… he’s really seeing me for me for the first time?
    *7. 4 of Cups – We are challenged to trust that this relationship isn’t too good to be true, and that it’s meant to be?

    Any help would be really really appreciated!

  2. Hey 😀

    I did this spread today and am kinda stuck on some things:

    Am I ready to meet the right one – Page of Cups – apparently yes, I am eager for love news

    Where are we most likely to meet – Queen of Wands – one of the cards i got stuck –

    What will be the nature of our initial connection – Three of Pentacles – working together on a project

    What do I need to do more of to meet the right one – Death – leave the past behind me?

    What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the right one – 9 of Wands – be less defensive , be more open (yes, I know, I take this card too frequently when it comes to emotions)

    Show me something about them that will make them more recognizable when we first meet – King of Cups – this card frequently pops when I ask about the person I want for myself – he is a a warmhearted, charismatic male. I need some sweetness in my life

    Show me my first challenge while this new relationship is in the early stages – The Tower – does that mean that I need to surrender to fate or that I need to go down and break the structures in order to have a full relationship

    I asked a clarification card to the Tower – i took the 4 of Wands – it seems the falloff the Tower might be worth of the mess

    (if that spread applies to who I’m thinking of , it might mean that i’ll have to deal with the fact i am his superior at work and deal with the falloff)

      1. Well, I pulled a clarifier – Knight of Cups . And talking about myself a little, I used to be in the past someone who goes ahead and take the initiative in relationships (even if it’s just talking and getting to know someone). Does the Knight of Cups mean that I should lay low and wait for him to initiate the conversation (putting the death on my old ways) or should I do the part?

        Also , I think I know what the Queen of Wands is – it’s the way I present myself at work – I even joked at him when pulling one double entendre and laughing that “someone who sees me talking here imagine that i’m a crude person” (like one interview with Jennifer Lawrence: I’m like all bark and no bite)

  3. I am a beginner. This is what my personal reading. Did I interpret it correctly?

    1. Am I ready to meet the Right One? Page of Coins = Yes

    2. Where are we most likely to meet? Seven of Wands = At work

    3. What will be the nature of our initial connection? Four of Wands = At a wedding, some type of celebration.

    4. What do I need to do more of to meet the Right One? Five of Coins = Keep my eyes open be more realistic. Make changes.

    5. What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the Right One? The Tower = Change of a permanent type.

    6. Show me something about them that will make them more recognizable when we first meet. Page of Wands = Young, high energy, high achiever and enthusiasm. He is a Sagittarius. Vocations of musician, philosopher, athlete, politician, student, teacher, artist, painter, Photoshop, cashier, entry-level job, improve actor school athletic coach or inventor. He likes sports like soccer and basketball.

    7. Show me my first challenge while this new relationship is in the early stages. The World = I might feel drawn to my partner becoming addicting and obsessive. Or, I might feel unrequited love due to my own mental images. I am my own obstacle.

      There is nothing wrong with the individual card interpretations per se… but there is a blatant lack of Cups here… While the 4 of Wands is encouraging, The World (Saturn) as the initial challenge speaks of a vast difficulties when it comes to making a go of it. There are two Pages here… a clue that you may need to learn more about your own needs in order to attract someone who is actually available.

      1. Thank you. I am able to interpret the individual cards but, when it comes to a combined interpretation, I have trouble with it so yeah. I appreciate it very much.

  4. Oh, I also have a question about the Ace of Wands. What else could the Ace mean besides attraction that will make him more recognizable when we first me?

    What do I need to do more of to meet the Right One? (The Star) Be more open and more receptive, as well social?

    What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the Right One? (The Moon) Be less emotionally guarded?

    Show me something about them that will make them more recognizable when we first meet. (Ace of Wands) Physical attraction.

      Hi ‘Dimples’ – Sorry, this is weird because I remember answering you a few days ago but my comment seem to have disappeared. I do apologise! The World + The Wheel is a sure sign that this is totally out of your hands and there is nothing you can do to rush thing. The Wheel is a sign that you will have an expansive feeling when you do meet. You’ll both feel luck. The Star is about faith here, I feel with the World + Wheel combo. The Moon is about putting your fears to rest. The Emperor as a challenge could indicate power struggles. With all these Majors, it could indicate a karmic power struggle. Blessed be!

  6. Hi Lisa, I’m stuck on number 3, 4, 5 and 7. Any help will be appreciated. Blessings to you xo

    1. Am I ready to meet the Right One? – King of Pentacles Yes I am.

    2. Where are we most likely to meet? – Page of Swords We are most likely to meet online, unexpected.

    3. What will be the nature of our initial connection? – 8 of Wands Not sure about this one so I pulled another card and received the Lovers. I know they both mean communication but I’m unsure of its meaning in this context. Will appreciate the help.

    4. What do I need to do more of to meet the Right One? – The Wheel of Fortune. Work on boundaries or keep my boundaries intact?

    5. What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the Right One? – Justice Another one I’m unsure of.

      3. Chatty 🙂
      4. Take more risks, jump on opportunities to date and socialise (Jupiter energy of The Wheel)
      5. Stop overthinking every little decision you make (Libra energy of Justice)
      7. Different cultural background/traditions

      1. Why thank you!! Chatty?? Hehe Don’t mind that at all. Could he be a earth sign, like a Capricorn or even a Taurus? I have a feeling he’ll appear as a earthy sign.

      Hi Alisha, welcome to Angelorum. How it works here is you share your own interpretations and ask specific questions on any cards you may feel stuck on. Cheers

  9. Hello I found your website a few days ago and I am loving it. Thank you for putting all these great info for us.

    I did this spread and got this:

    Am I ready to meet the right one – Ace of Coins – Yes ready for a new fruitful, solid beginning

    Where are we most likely to meet –Four of Pentacles – Maybe in a place of work where there are boundaries

    What will be the nature of our initial connection – Three of Swords <<<<<???????? maybe we already know each other and have hurt each other. I have no clue lol

    What do I need to do more of to meet the right one – Page of Wands – be more energetic and friendly, maybe be a little more bold

    What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the right one – The Lovers – Make decisions based on my emotions.

    Show me something about them that will make them more recognizable when we first meet – The King of Coins – I have no clue what this guy is telling me. He can't be an older man because I am not into old men. Maybe someone with money and well grounded, maybe an Earth sign

    Show me my first challenge while this new relationship is in the early stages – Knight of Pentacles – It's gonna be slow, or the person who will be in your life is taking his time or will take his time to make a move.

    My question is what can the three of swords mean in type of question. I see this as a very negative card.

    Thank you so much 🙂

      You could connect over the loss of someone or something with the 3 of Swords or he could have recently gone through a divorce. As for the ‘older men’ thing… it’s all relative, it could just mean he’s older than you. Or the focus lies more on his Virgo nature. Not all Pentacle types are loaded, some are just careful with money. 🙂

      Become aware of and work on boundaries in all your relationships. Avoid ALL emotional manipulation. Guard your thoughts and your energy. Blessed be!

  10. I’m sorry, but I have two more questions. What’s your opinion on the Four of Cups and Ten of Cups? Do you feel like this will be a lasting/good relationship?

    1. Post
      Author

      This spread doesn’t actually address longevity. The 10 of Cups only speaks of the initial challenge. Essentially, like anything in love and life, it becomes what you make of it. One possibility with the 10 of Cups is boundary issues for this Mars in Pisces card. The 4 of Cups is about going within (Moon in Cancer) so that you can hear your inner guidance and not fall prey to negative feelings or apathy. Blessings

  11. Hello Lisa,

    I believe this spread is fantastic!! So I decided to do the spread on myself. I’ll list what I have at the bottom. :-))

    Am I ready to meet the right one – Knight of Swords

    Where are we most likely to meet – Eight of Wands

    What will be the nature of our initial connection – The High Priestess

    What do I need to do more of to meet the right one – Four of Cups

    What do I need to do less of if I wish to meet the right one – King of Pentacles

    Show me something about them that will make them more recognisable when we first meet – The Lovers

    Show me my first challenge while this new relationship is in the early stages – Ten of Cups

    Here’s what I feel about this reading… I do want someone but I’m not willing to settle (considering I have in the past). I get the feeling that this will happen when it’s meant to and I’ll just know who the right person is. They’ll click into my life so quickly that I’ll barely see it happening. The Ten of Cups as a challenge is where I’ll have to surrender parts of myself to allow room for this relationship. It’ll be the breaking down of some walls and rebuilding of my life as a couple. To create the harmony represented by the ten I will have to be willing to be one half of a whole and to find a way to be individuals working as one.

    I have a question though. What is your opinion of the High Priestess, The Lovers and King of Pentacles??

    1. Post
      Author

      The Nature of your initial connection could be karmic with the HP which corresponds with The Moon. This would mean an instant and powerful emotional connection – The Lovers makes this even more plausible. As for the King of Pentacles… Watch out for a tendency to want to micro-manage the relationship and/or the other person. Blessings, Lisa

  12. Thanks Lisa. I tried this spread once before early last year. I did not write it down so I can’t remember the first card, but I must not have been ready. I tried this time and The Sun came up so I went ahead with the rest. The 2nd 5 of pentacles, I’m thinking spiritual church lol I have considered going but not sure yet. Charity work maybe, still thinking about this one, any ideas?. 3rd The World, possibly he foreign or I’m traveling or we both get on because we have lived abroad in the past. 4th The Magician, manifestation and confidence came to mind. 5th 6 of Cups had to laugh yes stop thinking about the past. 6th The Lovers, instant attraction, harmony, communication, Gemini, the image of this card from the Gilded Tarot is one of my favourite lovers images. 7th Nine of Pentacles, yes going from comfortably independent to sharing and living with someone again will be a challenge. Very happy with the spread though thanks.
