A Few Easy Short Beginner Tarot Spreads

Four-Card Spread by Skye Alexander
This spread offers advice for dealing with a specific concern. Its strength is its simple, direct approach to dealing with practical, everyday problems. Shuffle and cut the cards, then lay them out side by side in a horizontal line, from left to right.
Card 1: Situation
Card 2: Obstacle
Card 3: Action recommended
Card 4: Outcome

Basic 3 Card Reading (Push -- Pull - Advice)

Card 1—Flow or push. Less about the present state and more about the force driving you down your intended path (it may be a path you do not wish to travel).
Card 2—Obstacle or pull. Could be a very positive or guiding force
Card 3—Advice on the situation. Sheds light on the situations in its entirety.

The 3 card spread is actually more versatile than you might think. For more 3 cards spreads, check out these two links: Link 1 and Link 2
