The Celtic Cross Spread

Position 1 is the situation.

Position 2 crosses position 1 and this will often bring up the real issue or the challenge. This is the opposing factor.

Position 3 is below 1 and 2 and this adds further detail to the present situation. It is the root cause of the problem.

Position 4 to the left indicates the past.

Position 5 above the cross indicates influences which are leaving and the immediate future. It can also be the goal of the querant.

Position 6 to the right is close future.

Position 7 at the bottom of the vertical line indicates the fears of the querant. This can also be how you see yourself.

Position 8 directly above 7 indicates other people. It can represent matters of the home.

Position 9 directly above 8 indicates the hopes and wishes of the querant. There is often some key guidance with this card.

Position 10 at the top of the row indicates the outcome.

Tarot Spreads

Every spread is unique, and different because of the positions as well as their meanings. Individual spreads will look at and accomplish various and different things depending on which spread, and card has been chosen and who the reading is for, or even about. A key part of developing a good relationship with a Subject is to be able to understand which spread will most suit their or your current needs and provide you or them with the most help.

The Most common Spreads I have both found and have used are;

  • 3 Card Draw- Past Present, Future
  • Celtic Cross
  • Spiritual Guidance
  • Career Path
  • Wheel of the Year
  • Relationships ( Love)

There many many spreads and layouts.
