Before I start listing the pregnancy and fertility card combinations, I want to make it abundantly clear that I do not read on aspects of a pregnancy better left in the capable hands of a medical healthcare professional, nor do I recommend using the cards as a pregnancy test. I can assure you that you won’t get much joy from the cards that way since detachment from the outcome is necessary in order to accurately read the cards.
My reason for creating this list of tarot card combination interpretations is to help you get to know the cards better. Naturally, birth and pregnancies do show up in readings – as do miscarriages and abortions.
NB! I do not use the Tarot cards for professional readings on pregnancy and fertility. In the Garden of Fertility post (where you can try out your skills in reading the combinations), I explain why.
The knowledge shared with you in this post must be used with utmost discretion when reading for others. Always make it clear that your reading is not an alternative to pregnancy tests or proper medical check-ups. Never give a pregnant lady bad news or tell someone that they are unable to have children. EVER. This is for the same reason you never ever use the cards to diagnose a condition. You are not a doctor.
Do have fun experimenting with these interpretations by picking out the cards used (as you will see, many of them are repeated) and see if you can come up with other meaningful combinations that relate to pregnancy and fertility.
If you are looking for a Pregnancy Tarot Spread which covers all three trimesters, as well as conception, birth and sex of the baby, you will find one HERE.
