A twin flame is the soul’s other half. Use these tarot spreads to find your twin flame, explore a twin flame relationship, and more.
What Is a Twin Flame?
While many people consider a twin flame to be the same thing as a soulmate, they are, in fact, two very different things. What’s the difference between a twin flame and a soulmate, you ask?
A “soulmate” is a soul that is part of your core “soul group.” They appear to help you evolve as a spiritual being. Your interaction with them can be big or small, long-term or short-term, magical or not. But they are there to help you learn life lessons.
A “twin flame” is not part of your “soul group.” Instead, it’s the second half of your own soul—that you’re meeting again. So, interacting with a twin flame is never a trivial encounter. Because your twin flame is a part of you, meeting them can feel remarkably familiar, electric, magnetic, and potent.
But, unlike a soulmate, the purpose of a twin flame isn’t to help you learn life lessons. They’re there for lessons about you. Interacting with a twin flame is like looking in the mirror; their presence shows you the darker side of your soul.

Twin Flame Tarot Cards
There are quite a few Tarot cards that symbolize a twin flame connection. Take special note if any of these cards pop up:
The Lovers: The Lovers is the ultimate “twin flame” card. It’s often that twin flame relationships are full of fire and intensity—but are not always meant to last. The Lovers really represents that in-the-moment kind of love.
Two of Cups: This card can appear if you and your twin flame have a healthy connection (which is hard!).
The Devil: This might surprise you. Twin flame partnerships are intense, so they can sometimes turn toxic. This card tells you when things have gone from good to harmful.
The Tower: The Tower is another card that will tell you whether the partnership has turned toxic.
The World: When you meet your twin flame, everything just clicks. And that’s exactly what The World represents.
Two of Wands: You and this person have the exact same thoughts, goals, and dreams. Twin flame telepathy is a real thing!
