The Celtic Cross tarot spread is the old standby, the grandpa of all tarot card spreads. It is called the “Celtic Cross” to the very best of my knowledge as a result of its form, absolutely nothing even more. Many laments it as a fundamental, or “newbie’s spread,” yet in reality it is one of the most beneficial tarot spreads you will certainly ever make use of, and as it is common to the public’s expertise (such as it is) of the tarot card, you really need to grasp it.
But too many tarot readers read the cards separately, producing 10 little islands as opposed to one moving story. The point of this lesson is to help you see past the shroud, to data-mine, or to collect more information from 10 cards than the majority of people can with thirty. It is not dependent on knowing some fictional “secrets” of the Christianized Kabalah butchered by Eliphas Levi (Herman) or some numerological nonsense.
The “trick” is to understand the spread you are collaborating with (in this case the CC) as well as understanding what it is best for as well as exactly how to really obtain all of the info out of it. I have had the pleasure and also benefit of personally dealing with hundreds of expert psychics and we have actually contrasted notes, shared concepts, and also talked up until dawn over the numerous lies and also facts associated with the tarot, and also metaphysics as a whole. In this lesson we will certainly simply get to the heart of this particular issue, to wit:
The cards ought to be read separately at first. Identify their significance by contrasting their different interpretations to the querent’s situation/question. Don’t “nail” anything down yet, just delicately tape the definitions in position to ensure that you can reposition your thoughts as you gather even more info from the completeness of the spread before you. For more detailed lessons on how to learn the tarot readings, please visit their page for further info.
All of the cards will certainly communicate with each other and make clear each’s definitions, but a great overview is essential. Use the initial 4 verification cards (see the other lessons for how to do this) to make sure spread accuracy as well as discuss your first searchings with your querent. Obtain them involved. They know the tiny details, and you understand the general path. With each other, these must integrate or you are simply reviewing random cards and also trying to force reality into rubbish.
As soon as you have looked at the spread begin to seek the styles: the number of fits (all five): exists a predominance? Reversed cards: do they reveal a pattern of “swimming versus the present” or a refusal to face realities? Angry, or undesirable cards, support of the querent’s selections, and so forth.
Obtain a feeling of what the total message of the spread is and also establish if this is congruent with the querent’s objective(s), or if they are attempting to delve into their trousers (both legs at once). After this, it is time to reach the “fun things.” Do not miss in advance to this or you will lose crucial details and also you will give awful, or unstable suggestions, as well as subsequently will establish a bad reputation.
