The Relationship Happiness Tarot spread below can be used for any type of relationship and is not limited to love and romance. It was inspired by the Gandhi quote below:
Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.
1. a & b) What you and your partner are thinking about each other
2. a & b) What you and your partner are saying to each other (how you communicate)
3. a & b) What you and your partner are doing to each other (how you treat each other)
4. a & b) Advice on how to create more harmony between what you think, say and do.
5. Current happiness potential
Be the change you want to see in your relationship! 🙂
“They’ve got no idea what happiness is, they don’t know that without this love there is no happiness or unhappiness for us — there is no life.”
~ Leo Tolstoy
I’d like to think that Tolstoy is referring to the love of the Divine for all living beings. To feel that love in our hearts is life itself.
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”
~ Guillaume Apollinaire
After all, it is those who self-generate happiness for no other reason than happiness itself who have the greatest chance of relationship happiness too. It’s quite simple, really…
I love this spread! Thanks so much for sharing. I recently started dating someone new, and I feel very comfortable in it, so I decided to do this spread and look into it. I think it’s a fairly positive reading, would be interested in your thoughts!
1a/b, how we think about each other: Page of wands, The Moon
2a/b how we communicate: King of Wands, Seven of Wands
3a/b, what we are doing to each other: Nine of CUps, Reversed 5 of cups
4a/b, how to gain harmony: The Sun, Reversed Nine of Coins
5, happiness potential: Four of Wands
I have only been using tarot for a few years, so insight would help me a lot!
Hi Lessa, this is how this works: You post your own interpretation of the reading and then ask question on any card(s) you are stuck on. Cheers
This spread was awsome. I just used it in a reading for a client. I will definitely put it in my “tarot tool basket” for upcoming relationship questions.
That’s wonderful to hear, thank you Sigrun! 🙂
just the spread that I needed!!!…..my take is that I need to stop talking about the same thing over and over again?? ( getting engaged, looking for a ring) I was kinda stuck on that card and the knight of swords do I give him too many options with the 7 of cups? any help would be appreciated….
My Sample Spread
1a- 8 of swords 1b- 8 of pents
2a- page of pents 2b- the fool
3a- 7 of cups 3b- 9 of cups
4a- 10 of swords 4b- knight of swords
5- Ace of cups ( extra card to clarify potential was Judgement card)
Thank you Lisa!!! 🙂
Hi Jennifer. Could you please re-post this with the card position meaning together with the cards you pulled please. I reply to the comments on the moderation page and I can’t see the spread here. I wouldn’t have time to reply to all of these comments if I had to jump to the individual posts. (And because I have created well over 100 spreads, I can’t remember the card positions for each) Thanks!
A wonderful spread.
My own sample, for me and a male friend:
1a (how I see him): Chariot; 1b King Wands;
2a: Knight Cups; 2b: Page Pentacles;
3a: Ace Wands; 3b: The Hanged Man;
4a: 3 Wands; 4b: Wheel of Fortune;
5: 2 Cups.
Two cards were very literal to me: Chariot (he is a man with a Sun in Cancer) and 2 Cups (we have both Venus in Cancer) 🙂
Can anyone tell me something about the position 1b (he sees me as a King on Wands…?);
Hi Ana, thanks for commenting and glad you like the spread. The King of Wands corresponds to the sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarians are known for their love of Philosophy and higher learning. They often embody the Teacher Archetype. On the flip side, they can also be seen as the class clown, as they are natural entertainers and love to make people laugh. The King of Wands is the Visionary among the Court Cards, and inspires others to be their best and brightest. He, or indeed She, is well travelled and intelligent but oddly seems to suffer from foot-in-mouth disease, as sometimes what they perceive as being frank is just on the wrong side of polite. Hope this helps! Blessings, Lisa
It fits me, yes. I like to demystify situations, sometimes I say too much, and people feel a bit frightened (although after they may give me reason, but at the time …) Yes, its my sun-mercury squares jupiter. Thanks, Lisa!
You’re welcome, Ana!
My take on sample spread:
1) person a thinks b is too quiet & mysterious & no adventure while Person B thinks A is very harsh & not-so-interested in them
2) Person A is usually into self-pity talk (because b is very mysterious & doesnt open very much) & B is very aggressive (because they think A is very harsh on them)
3) A is trying to clear things in area of communication (trying to get B talking) & B is trying to just hang in there & see how things pan out (I think this is why A thinks B is very still for their taste).
4) Both are pages, so both need to learn more about each other. A needs to be more compassionate (because B thinks they are too harsh) & B needs to be more practical.
There is definitely a chance for improvement & moving towards something better.
Just my two cents..
Great interpretation of this spread, STD! 🙂 Well done! I don’t have much to add to it really. Glad you like the spread and hope you find it useful for self and clients! xx
