Tarot Spread for Psychic Development

Does Everyone Have Psychic Abilities?

Yes, everyone has some amount of psychic capability. Intuition is a natural faculty, though it can be suppressed early in life by authority figures who only value “logic.” In the Western world, left-brain rationalism is valued above right-brain intuitive perception. Information that comes from a source that cannot always be verified and measured is therefore suspect. Nonetheless, our intuition — whether you think of it as a psychic ability or something instinctual — has value.

Can Psychic Abilities Be Cultivated?

Absolutely, and there are many wonderful teachers of the mystical arts available to us. Studying under an experienced psychic teacher is one way to help your psychic potential bloom, and the internet has made this process much easier! If you’re looking for a teacher, be sure to go with your gut and choose the one that feels like the best match for you right now. Just remember that you will probably study under many teachers, as spiritual evolution is a constant process.

If you aren’t sure about your spiritual abilities, though, or don’t know whether you want to or should develop them, you may want to seek further guidance before you decide. One way to gain insight into your psychic development is to consult the Tarot and see what the cards have to say about your growth.

The Tarot and Psychic Abilities

There are several Tarot cards that stand out as markers of psychic ability. Here’s one example of how a reading like this might play out:

Perhaps you come in for a reading and mention that you are having remarkable dreams. The events in your dreams later happen in the external world.

You keep experiencing synchronicities that are too frequent and meaningful to be coincidental.  You are hearing, seeing, and feeling in a supranormal way, and you get the sense that your perception is heightened and accurate.

Well, if you’re experiencing anything like this, and then The High Priestess, The Hermit, The Moon, The Fool, and The Hanged Man show up all at once in a reading, then you are very likely being led into psychic territory!

Key Psychic Development Tarot Cards

These cards signal “the call” of intuition. The Hermit, The Magician, The High Priestess, and the Star can all mean that Spirit and your Higher Self are working with you. They may be instructing you during sleep, meditation, or even normal waking consciousness.

This could indicate that the Universe has a job for you; it may want you to use your unique skills and abilities within a specific niche to help make the world healthier and happier.

The Sacred Tree: A Psychic Development Tarot Spread

This is a 10-card spread designed to answer whether you’re ready to develop your psychic ability. If now’s not a good time for you to focus on your intuitive development, that’s okay. You can “keep it in the bank” for when your schedule settles down. There is always a choice.

If you do want to explore your psychic abilities and are getting signs from Spirit, the Sacred Tree Spread can shine a light on your spiritual development. It is a simpler spread than the traditional Tree of Life Spread, but it can be used to gain similar insight. It examines the soul and where the soul is headed, but it takes into account all the forces, inner and outer, that will help or hinder this process.

Shuffle well, and pull 10 random cards from the stack, laying them face down in a pattern that resembles the leaves and branches of a tree. Use your intuition when deciding on their exact placement. Read the cards from left to right, starting at the top left and ending at the bottom right of the spread.

Let’s dive into an example of what a psychic development Tarot spread might look like.

Card One: Do I Have Psychic Potential?

 The High Priestess

Your intuition is awakening like never before. Spiritual experiences are becoming commonplace. It is time to develop your gift through instruction, meditation, prayer, and visualization. Explore different divination methods to see which ones you resonate with.

Card Two: How Do I Access Psychic Information?

The Queen/King of Cups

You will intuit with your heart. Listening to Spirit will help you develop clairaudience, or the ability to hear the messages from your angels, guides, and Higher Power. You are compassionate and gentle and may work in law, education, or some version of ministry. You are a born healer of emotions.

Card Three: What Skills Should I Develop?

 The Fool

Trust and spontaneity are the most important things for you to learn. For now, set aside your “rational” mind and let your body convey its messages to you. Try new things and explore. Have a “beginner’s mind.” Keep an open and unbiased perspective.

Card Four: Where Will This Go?


You will be rewarded for your work with spiritual strength. The power of love over evil will include the mastery of fear. You will become capable of taming ego, in yourself and in others. Your growth in consciousness will enable you to bring more goodness into the world.

Card Five: What Is the Greatest Obstacle to My Psychic Growth?

Queen of Swords (Reversed)

You may have been wounded by the criticism and harsh skepticism of others. You have internalized and developed a sense of perfectionism, setting high standards for yourself. You have been over-reliant on your mind and neglected your heart as a result. Your challenge is to switch gears from fear to compassion, toward both other people and yourself.

Card Six: What Is My Greatest Strength When Developing Psychically?

The Hermit

Your love of seclusion and solitude is your strongest asset. You can work in silence with total concentration. You can rely on and believe the information you are receiving psychically. Your love of alone time isn’t an issue because you are also highly loving. You can trust yourself and will emerge as a leader if you can walk through your emotional wilderness and find your way to the other side.

Card Seven: Where Will My Strengths Lead Me?

The Hanged Man

You will find your greatest psychic strength through surrender. The more you do this, the clearer your psychic information and messages will be.

Card Eight: What Do I Need for Balance?

Three of Cups

Don’t forget to play and celebrate with others! This will be necessary to balance out your time in solitude. Find a group you can really trust and share your discoveries with them. Listen to their feedback with an open mind, but above all, learn to trust your perceptions.

Card Nine: Do I Have Other Assets for Psychic Development?

The Moon

Your emotions are powerful. Let them fuel your work and keep you on the path. Your dreams will provide you with much insight. Pay attention to their messages.

Card Ten: What Will Happen if I Use These Assets to the Best of My Ability?

The Magician

You will master the art and science of psychic perception. By combining surrender and concentration, you will decode arcane symbolism. You will use this knowledge and understanding to create your reality and assist others in doing the same.

Using Tarot To Evolve Spiritually

Tarot can be used both as a tool to discern the presence of psychic ability and as a way to develop it. By meditating on the essence and energy of individual Tarot cards, you are systematically working on your body, mind, and spirit.

The cards of the Major Arcana are especially suited for this work. By gaining further insight into your state of being, you may find that this path can help you increase both your wisdom and your intuitive abilities. Good luck!
