Yes or No Tarot Spread

Share This Post

There are many options for a Yes or No Tarot spread but in this article, I am going to share the one that is my go-to. I am not the creator of this technique and I want to give credit where credit is due. This method was created by Theresa Reed who is also known as the “Tarot Lady”. 🙂

Before I get into the technique, I want to mention that while some traditional tarot practitioners maintain that the cards are best suited for nuanced and holistic readings, the yes or no methods are a viable tool for anyone who is seeking quick answers to pressing questions.

Prep Your Deck

  • First, I recommend dedicating a tarot deck that you specifically use for special readings like the “Yes or NO” spread. This way, the deck is always ready to go and it is energetically ready for when questions come up.
  • This method requires using only the Minor Arcana cards so you will want to remove all of the Major Arcana cards from the deck leaving only the swords, wands, cups, and pentacles cards. Set the Major Arcana cards aside.

The Yes or No Tarot Technique

  • Shuffle the modified deck while thinking about your question. 
  • Once the cards feel ready, deal from the top and flip the cards one by one until an ace appears OR you have dealt 13 cards (whichever comes first).
  • Repeat until you have 3 piles.

Interpreting the Results

  • If 3 aces are on top, the answer to your question is a YES.
  • 1 or 2 aces on top is a clear maybe. (2 aces – maybe but likely; 1 ace means unlikely but possibly a yes)
  • If no aces are revealed then the answer is NO.
