What Do Our Dreams Mean?
Dreams can have varied meanings, both spiritual and psychological. Dream interpretation is the only way to connect with your subconscious and understand the dream.
Some spiritual theories suggest that dreaming is a way of connecting with our higher consciousness. In doing so, we receive messages from our respective spirit guides. However, psychologists see dreams as a way to communicate our fears and hidden truths.
Whether spiritual or psychological, dreams are essential to our lives and, in most cases, guide us in our waking lives.
Since dreams use imagery and symbolism, we can use tarot spreads to understand their meaning.
Understand What Your Dream Means Through Tarot Reading
Tarot reading is an effective way of interpreting our dreams. Tarot spreads can link with our soul and subconsciousness to interpret what our dreams mean. If you have an intuitive pull to the tarot reading, your soul is heeding your dream’s message. Below are the various tarot spreads to use for dream interpretation.
Three-Card Tarot Spread
The three-card tarot spread is a dream interpretation spread ideal for beginners. It helps interpret the general meaning of a confusing dream.
Card number one is the cause of the dream. The cause of the dream is what bothers your subconscious. Causes are varied and can be any aspect of your life. They may include your relationship, work, or family life.
Card number two is the background of the dream. This card reveals the hidden meaning of the dream. Since the meaning is in your subconsciousness, it may take time to understand it.
Card number three communicates how to deal with the dream or move on. It shows the real-life action you should take in response to the dream’s meaning.
Three-Card Symbolism Spread
There are two types of three-card tarot spreads. The first (discussed above) is for general interpretation, while the second is a symbolism spread. This tarot spread is based on the fact that our subconsciousness uses what we experience and see daily to communicate through dreams. Use this card spread if you see a specific symbol more than once in your dreams.
The first card to pull represents the symbol’s meaning. This card is an actual real-life representation of your dream.
The second card shows your emotions. This card shows your emotions in connection with the symbol and its accurate representation in your subconsciousness.

If the dream overwhelms you, seek help from a therapist.
