TABLE OF CONTENTS
Halloween is a night of mystery and possibility. Whether you think of bats, witches, black cats, ghosts, or otherworldly creatures, this night has something to offer everyone. In addition, people regarded Halloween as a time to honour the dead and connect with them. The three-day event, including All Hallows Eve, All Saints, and All Souls Day, is a great time to reflect on and remember our loved ones who have departed.
So, what are your plans for Halloween this year? 🎃👻 Maybe you'll find a costume that expresses your secret side, visit friends for food and drink, or attend a ritual for solemn spirit communication.
Another way to kick off Halloween night this year is by doing something new. One of the most enjoyable activities of Halloween is opening the night with a tarot card reading. There is no one right way to do a Tarot reading, and no specific deck is better than any other. The best personal psychic reading will be one that speaks to your intuition, inspires your curiosity about the unknown, and provides answers to your pressing questions.
Why You Should Have A Halloween Tarot Spread
During a Tarot reading, you create a line between the ordinary and the extraordinary by opening the cards and asking questions. This allows us to explore and find things that are usually hidden or overlooked, allowing spiritual consciousness to expand. 😌
This year, make the most of the intense vibrations and thin "veil between the worlds" on a Halloween night. Here are some reasons why people should try a Halloween tarot spread:
Samhain New Year ✨
New Year's is a popular day for tarot readings to remember the past, see the future, and anticipate obstacles. Samhain, or Halloween, is referred to as the Pagan New Year. As a result, many people do readings on Samhain similarly to how they would on New Year's Eve or Day.
Celebrate Halloween 🎃
Pagans observe Samhain or Halloween on a more spiritual level. They might take part in rituals and feasts with friends. Tarot reading is one of many possible activities to enjoy at night. Some people enjoy Halloween and desire to celebrate and dress up with friends by engaging in mystical pursuits on Halloween night.
Messages from Those Passed 🪦
Many individuals think the barrier between our world and the rest of creation is thinner on Halloween. They claim that this makes it simpler to connect with departed family members. Depending on the Halloween tarot spread, you might also get messages from those in the afterlife.

Rider Waite Tarot Deck
And of course, the Halloween tarot list would not be complete without the Rider Waite Tarot Deck. Aeclectic Tarot listed this deck as one of the Top Ten Tarot Decks of All Time. The graphic playing cards were created in 1909 by Pamela Colman Smith under the supervision of Arthur Edward Waite. ✍🏻
"A unique feature of the Rider-Waite Deck, one of the principal reasons for its enduring popularity, is that all of the cards, including the Minor Arcana, depict full scenes with figures and symbols. Before the Rider-Waite Tarot, the pip cards of almost all tarot decks were marked only with the arrangement of the suit signs -- swords, wands, cups, coins, or pentacles. The pictorial images on all the cards allow interpretations without needing to consult explanatory text repeatedly. The innovative Minor Arcana, and Pamela Colman Smith's ability to capture the subtleties of emotion and experience, have made the Rider-Waite Tarot a model for the designs of many tarot packs." -- (From The Encyclopedia of Tarot, Volume III)
The Rider-Waite deck deviated from the centuries-old tarot deck tradition by including detailed images on the 56 Minor Arcana cards. It became the benchmark for almost all tarot decks that were later issued.

How To Do a Halloween Tarot Spread
So, you've got your cards and choose the best Halloween tarot spread for you. What's next?
#1 Meditate 🧘🏻♀️
Many people believe that meditating before a tarot reading can help improve the accuracy of the reading. Mindfulness can help you clear your mind and allow intuition to flow more freely. Take a few slow, deep breaths if you prefer not to meditate.
#2 Set the Stage 🕯
Often people like to create an environment that encourages intuition. When you want to create a space to focus your energy, you can gather some crystals and other objects with special meaning.
#3 Say a Protection Prayer 🙏🏼
Following that, you should pray for protection. If the term "prayer" offends you because you link it with religion and are not religious, you can substitute another word. It aims to shield yourself and your cards from harmful energy.
When we open ourselves to otherworldly energies, we may expose ourselves to bad energies. Using Tarot can lead to energy depletion, and the cards may not always reflect your question. To avoid this situation, you can say a prayer and talk to God, the Goddesses, your spirit guides, your angels, or your higher self about anything you're feeling or worried about. Your intention is what matters.
Here is an example of a prayer that you can do:
"Spirit guides, angels, and the Universe, thank you for being with me and continue to be with me throughout the reading. Please give me protection, clarity, wisdom, focus, and calmness. Thank you/Amen."
#4 Clear Energies on the Deck ✨
There are several ways readers can clear old energies from their decks. For example, some card players may shuffle their cards differently before mixing them. You can also knock on the deck three times. Clearing the old energy away can create a new space for further reading.
#5 Shuffle the Cards 🃏
Now, you are ready to begin. Shuffle the cards while keeping your query or goal for the reading in mind. Keep in mind that different readers shuffle in various ways. Some divide the deck into three pieces, while others mix the entire thing. When you feel the deck is clear or ready, you can stop. Keep the deck face down once you're done.
#6 Layout the Cards 🏻
Next, look at the cards' placement in your Halloween tarot spread. After you've arranged the cards in the way you want, start with the top card.
#7 Start your Halloween Tarot Reading 🎃
First, look at the overall layout of your Halloween tarot spread to see if you notice any patterns. If you are unfamiliar with cards, you may need to look at a guidebook. But if you don't have one or lost yours, you can still access its information by looking it up online. Another option is downloading a tarot app, which will provide you with written interpretations very quickly. Although it's always a good idea to consult official meanings, your intuition can also help determine the meaning.
After you've interpreted the individual meanings, remember to look at the layout as a whole. So what does your intuition say about these cards?
#8 Wrap up your Tarot Ritual 😌
Try doing a close-out ceremony once you're done. Most readers do this even though others don't because it's a way to connect with the cards and express gratitude to God, the Universe, or your higher self. You can create your own ceremony by praying, knocking or rearranging the cards to "clean" the energy, inhaling deeply, etc.
If you're looking to do a tarot spread for Halloween night, it can be a good time to do a fall or Samhain tarot reading. Tarot readings can be a fun way to connect with the other side at Halloween, or they can be a regular part of your celebration. Whichever your perspective, a tarot spread can be a great way to get a reading. Using your intuition alongside the cards' meanings and their placements can help you gain insights into yourself and your world. This can help you understand yourself better and see things from a new perspective.
