How to Read the Intuitive Two Choices Tarot Spread

Basically, you read this spread in three groups of three cards. The first three cards tell a story about your background and where you’re at now about the choice you are facing. These cards could show you any inner doubts or challenges you are facing. Or they could focus more on outside circumstances. Usually, it is a mix of both.

The second group of three Tarot cards shows you how things are likely to progress if you go down the path of choice A. Finally, the third group of three cards shows you how things are likely to progress if you go down the path of choice B.

Choose the 10th and final card from a Majors-only deck. This is the card that tells you the real issue your Higher Self is facing. This takes you beyond the bleedingly obvious outer circumstances and your own indecision and hopefully provides you with the bird’s eye perspective you need to make your choice.

Oracle Option

Alternatively, you can choose your final card from an oracle relevant to your question. So, for instance, if your question is about love & romance, choose a romance oracle. The I-Ching of Love Oracle or Doreen Virtue’s Romance Angel Oracle would work well, for instance.

Quint Option

Finally, you can choose to work out the Major Arcana card for the theme or spiritual lesson based on the three cards at the bottom of the spread. You simply add the cards together and the number you get is the relevant Major Arcana. The Fool counts as 22 in Tarot Numerology. Any number larger than 22 needs to be reduced to a number between 1-22. For court cards, you count 11 for the Page, 12 for the Knight, 13 for the Queen and 14 for the King.

No Clear Answer?

There are times when you won’t get a clear answer. This could be due to one of two reasons. There is currently no way forward and you are better off waiting things out. Or there is a third option waiting to be discovered. You can try tuning into which intuitively or you can pull a card for each.

Go with the card that trumps the other. Let’s say you get The Sun for ‘Wait!’ and the 6 of Wands for a third option. Both are positive but no need to ponder further because the Major Arcana card is the stronger card. In other words, you are better off waiting a week or two and then laying the cards out again, perhaps at the next New or Full Moon.

  1. Hey Lisa! Love the spread, but if you only have one tarot deck, how can you choose the tenth card from a Majors only deck? Or do you mean that you should split the Majors from the Minors when doing this spread? Thanx!

      Hi Laura, If you only have one deck, you can keep pulling cards off the top until you get to the next Major for the 10th card. If you have two full decks, you can separate the Majors out from the second deck… There is always room for improvisation! 🙂
