Since it's a three-card reading session, there are three cards, each representing one of the aspects. Such as the first card represents the past, the second card symbolises the present, and the third card stands for the future.

What do the three cards represent?

As we know, each card represents one aspect of time, and thus by studying any particular card, you can analyse its corresponding passage of time. Moreover, since the future is made from today, and today is built on the foundations of yesterday, each card has its significance, essence, role, and aspect. Here are the roles of the cards, what they represent, and how you can interpret their meanings:

Card 1: Past

The first card of the past present future tarot spread is the card of the Past. This card talks of the past, the decisions you had taken that have shaped your life, and the things that may have been acting as blockages to moving forward. This card tells you of the past influences on your current situation, how decisions taken in the past play a significant role in your today, what may have been some essential aspects which have built your life into what it is today, and the several distinct elements which had played their parts.

For example, this card will tell you of things you have done, what you could have done differently, and how your life might have been entirely different if you had made some other decisions. A positive past card symbolises energy which you house that has helped you time and again to overcome adverse situations. Similarly, a negative card urges you to let go of any toxic energy that might be playing a harmful role.

Card 2: Present

The card of the present stands for your present life and the things currently taking place in your life. This energy is symbolised as the frequency, vibe, or energy of the present. This card will tell you how your present has been in terms of your past and how your future will be with regards to your present.

This could In life, everything is connected, and your life is a constant loop of the decisions you have made, the actions you are undertaking right now, and the plans you have built for your future. Therefore, the present card is related to the past card. It talks about how your past creates your present, how negative aspects may have led to a particular circumstance and the positive elements that helped you make a stable today.

Card 3: Future

In the future tarot spread, the third card talks of the future, how it will pan out, the changes you can make to make your future better, and some adverse elements that may hamper your tomorrow. The message of this card may not be what you expect. It might be completely different and opposite to what you might have been hoping for, but it's important to remember that it will be the most likely outcome as per your present situation.

When this card is positive, it would be best to interpret it as a sign to stay consistent, keep doing all the good actions, and stay on top of your efforts. However, suppose the card appears to be negative. In that case, it is advisable to reevaluate your previous cards, understand their energy and message, and how you can throw out the harmful elements from your life's present situation.

What are some conditions for past present future reading?

While engaged in a past present future tarot card reading session, there are various factors taken into consideration. Here are some of the significant pointers to keep in mind in this particular type of tarot reading session:

  • Suppose your past, and present cards represent negative energy or messages, but your future card is a positive one. In that case, you can interpret your reading to be asking you to discard negative energies, welcome positive vibes, and find the strength to overcome all adverse situations.
  • If your past and present cards are positive, but your future card is not, then the Universe is asking you to work on situations and decisions which might bring temporary setbacks in your life. These setbacks may serve as a way to urge you to walk toward the right path, work on issues, and welcome success. The positivity of the two cards will bring success, development, and growth, and your chances of avoiding a negative future are high if you work according to the two previous cards.
  • In a reading, the time frame may vary, and the outcome you might be expecting may not come immediately. For example, if your future card consists of positive elements, you may experience immediate changes, or it may come years later. Therefore, it is advisable to keep up your intuition, have faith, and cultivate belief and positivity. In short, you have to manifest the future you want.

How can you do your own life reading?

As we already know, tarot reading is all about energies, vibrations, and frequencies. So, it is highly essential for you to be in tune with not just your energy but also the energy of the Universe, the cards, and the power of the messages being sent to you. So, for example, during any tarot reading, it is recommended for you to calm yourself, align yourself with the power of the Universe, allow things to come as they are, and accept and make changes accordingly.

While it is mainly advisable to get your readings done by a professional such as InstaAstro tarot readers, it is not necessary. Even if you're a beginner, you can do your reading, identify the cards that come up, and interpret their messages, symbolisms, and underlying meanings. Here are a few simple steps that you can follow while engaging in a tarot reading session for yourself or others:

  • First, getting in tune with the frequencies around you, elevating yourself to an emotionally higher level of being, and calming yourself down should be at the top of your list. Before engaging in your tarot reading, calm yourself, take deep breaths, and determine why you are doing this reading.
  • After you have unravelled your reason for undertaking this personal reading, speak out your intention to the Universe and your spiritual guides.
  • Then, invoke your angel or spiritual guides, request them to aid you in your attempt to make your life better through tarot cards' messages, and ask your guardian angels to guide you toward the right path, help you understand what you're being told, and enable you to become better versions of yourself.
  • The next step would be to get into the reading. For this, shuffle your deck, choose three cards intuitively, and turn them toward you one by one. Again, the cards are kept down and are selected from left to right.
  • The first card of the past will tell of your past, its impact on your present, people and emotions of the gone days, and even decisions which might still be a huge part of your life.
  • The second card of the present will talk about your today, how it is unfolding every day, and what you can do to improve the present.
  • Lastly, the third card of the future holds insight regarding the future, including warnings and what is going to happen.
