How many times did you found yourself crying out to a friend or family member, “I lost something and I really need to find it!”? Before using this Tarot spread for finding lost items, I remember doing it sooo many times. Even one of my oldest memories is just about that!
When I was five years old, my two-year-old brother hid the only keys we had to the house and forgot where he had put them. When my desperate parents asked him again and again where the keys were, he just cried and said, “elsewhere.”
Although now it is nothing more than a funny anecdote, I remember that we were all quite desperate at that time. We were locked in the house, and my father had to go to work!
I bet this kind of situation happened to you too. You may have lost your house keys, car keys, smartphone, or an important and beloved piece of jewelry. And probably you were worried and desperate too!
The good news is that you don’t have to despair anymore!
Next time you lose something, all you have to do is this Tarot spread for finding lost items. And with a little luck and intuition, you’ll be reunited with your lost item in no time.
But first, let’s answer the question that I bet is on your mind right now: is it really possible to use Tarot to find lost items?
Can You Use Tarot To Find Lost Items?
The simple answer is: yes! Many people use the Tarot to find a job, to find a place to live, and even to find the love of their life. So finding lost items should be easy. All you need is a high dose of intuition and some knowledge about Tarot card interpretation.
But there are two important things you should know. First of all, finding things related to “people” is much easier than finding things related to “objects.”
For example, finding job guidance is easier than finding a ring or your keys. Why? Because Tarot is related to energy. And people emit more energy than items.
It is much easier for a tarot reader to “read” the energy of a person than that of an item. That is why so many tarot readers specialize in career and relationships, and so few specialize in finding lost objects!
The other thing I have to clarify is that, although the Tarot reading is straightforward, the real keys here are your gifts of interpretation of the cards and your intuition.
How Do You Use Tarot To Find Lost Items?
The key to this Tarot spread for finding lost items, as I said before, is in your capacity for interpretation and intuition.
If you need help interpreting the cards, try using the keywords in this list of Tarot cards with pictures and meanings.
However, my best advice is that rather than concentrating on the meanings of the cards, look for clues in the images. Your intuition is key here!
Some of the missing things that this Tarot spread can help you find are:
- Credit card
- Jewelry (rings, earrings, necklaces, etc.)
- Coins and money
- Cameras and accessories
- Hardware and gardening tools
- Electronics and small appliances
- All kinds of medium and small objects, such as kitchen utensils, art supplies, etc.
- And even pets, like cats and dogs!
Of course, this Tarot spread to find lost items works best when we suspect that the item is indeed lost, and not that it was stolen.
And it is usually easier to interpret when the item is lost in or around the house, or in the car, than when we think it was lost somewhere in the city (such as when we lose something in public transport. )
Tarot Spread For Finding Lost Items
This Tarot spread for finding lost items is based on connecting with the object’s energy in question. The main idea of this spread is to find clues that tell us where the item is and if it is possible to find it or not.
With regard to the latter, it is important that before making the spread you get used to the idea that it may not be possible to find it.
You may receive a negative answer from cards if the item has been stolen, or if it is in a place completely out of your reach like a sewer, or if it went down the toilet, or if you lost it on public transport.
But if the item can be found, and the Divinity / Higher Self / Universe wants you to find it, the Tarot will help you find your lost item!
How To Read The Tarot Spread For Finding Lost Items
This Tarot spread will provide you with all the information you need for finding your lost objects. First of all, it will tell you if it is possible to find it or not. Then it will guide you about where it is and what it has around it. And finally, it will tell you about the result of your search.
This is the meaning of the position of each of the cards:
- Card position #1: Is it possible to find it?
- Card position #2: Its Location
- Card position #3: Above It
- Card position #4: Besides It
- Card position #5: Below It
- Card position #6: Outcome
Card position #1: Is It Possible To Find It?
This card is the most important of the spread because it is the one that indicates whether it is possible to find the lost item or not.
Interpret it as you would interpret a YES or NO roll of a card.
Some guidelines that will help you interpret this card are:
- If the card is reversed it indicates that it will be difficult or that it will not be possible to find the item. (If you don’t use reversed cards, pay attention to the other guidelines.)
- Major Arcana are usually a sign that you will find the item, unless it is the Devil, the Tower, Death, or the Hanged Man. All those cards indicate that you won’t find it.
- The Moon and the Wheel of Fortune indicate that it is not certain that you will find it (maybe yes, maybe not).
- Strength and the Hermit indicate that you will have a hard time finding him.
- As for the minor arcana and the court cards, you have to interpret each one according to its meaning and position (if it is upright or reversed.)
Card position #2: Location
This card will give you a clue about the specific place where the lost item is.
Look at the picture in your card:
- Does it have a lot of water? Can it perhaps represent the bathroom, the shower, or the kitchen? Or maybe the beach, the sea, a river or stream that you have recently been to?
- Does it have many people? Or just one person?
- Are there many Cups? Could it be a restaurant? Or the kitchen?
The idea is that you should look carefully at the card and take note (mentally or on paper) of all the ideas that cross your mind at that moment.
Now that you have an idea of where it may be, the following cards will help you locate it in that place, indicating what the lost object is surrounded by (what is above, below, and around it).
Card position #3: Above It
This card will give you a clue as to what the lost item has on top of it.
Card position #4: Besides It
This card will give you a clue as to what the lost item has next to it.
Card position #5: Below It
This card will give you a clue as to what the lost item has under it.
Card position #6: Outcome
The card in this position will give you clues about the outcome of the situation.
For example, if the first card told you that it will not be possible to find the lost item, this last card will tell you about the consequences of the loss.
If the first card told you that it would be possible to find your lost item, this last card will tell you about the result of the search.
