Celtic Cross Spread

Celtic Cross

 

 

Difficulty: Average

This is probably the most common spread. A good basic spread for beginners to use for practice, the Celtic Cross is useful for questions of all types. In this spread it can be helpful to notice the relationships between the pairings of cards #5 & #9, #1 & #2, #3 & #4, and #6 & #10.

  1. The significator shows what the reading deals with, the initial situation.
  2. An added impulse that compounds the significator, which may be either complimentary or contradictory.
  3. This is what the querent is consciously aware of (thoughts).
  4. Unconscious driving forces the querent may not be aware of (emotions).
  5. The immediate past regarding the current situation.
  6. The first future card indicates the immediate future.
  7. This card represents the querent and their attitude towards cards #1 and #2.
  8. The external influences, the places and people which influence the topic.
  9. This card is the querent’s expectations; what is secretly hoped for or feared.
  10. The second future card shows the longer-term outcome.
