One of the first tarot spreads we learn as budding Tarot readers is the classic Past, Present, Future Tarot Spread. It can be found in nearly all Tarot deck companion books and is featured in a large number of other tarot books too. This is for good reason – it’s a nice simple spread that’s easy to remember and easy for any new tarot reader to learn and understand when used for themselves or for their friends and family.

It deals with any question, of any nature and gives a great deal of insight into where you’ve come from, where you are and where you’re heading. A simple Past, Present, Future Tarot Spread looks like this:

Significators have seen a general decline in popularity in recent times, and I’ve never been a great fan or user of them, as I discussed in my introduction to using the Celtic Cross spread. If we get a little creative though, there are some great uses for a significator in Tarot readings, so long as we leave behind the traditional spreads like the Celtic Cross and opt for something with more room to move.
