Sample Reading:Celtic Cross


The Celtic Cross, a well-known and traditional tarot spread, has had something of a bad press lately. Indeed, it's often a lousy spread for beginners as the possible combinations and interrelationships can be extremely complex.

Bar that caveat for beginners,  it can be a tremendously useful spread when a problem is fuzzy as it tends to disclose a number of issues, especially those motivations and feelings which may clarify a problem, any of which can then be picked up on for a further, more specific reading. Here is an example of using it for just that purpose.

Here I present, with kind permission from the Querent, a slightly modified version of a recently performed Celtic Cross reading. I have adapted this traditional spread to best address the current state of mind of the Querent. The original version was more detailed and covered the themes in more depth but here, for the purposes of an overview and with respect to the usual life-span for a human being in a busy world perusing a random tarot blog post, is a contracted and somewhat brutalized sample of the reading.
