Using the Celtic Cross Spread to Explore a Past Event We mostly use tarot to find out about the future, or explore a current event in our lives or that of our clients. Tarot is also an excellent tool for exploring past events too. All we need do is tweak the positions of our favourite tarot spread and we have our very own questionnaire built to explore the past! I’m going to use the Celtic Cross Tarot Spread in this post as it lends itself well to customisation. (See my free tutorial on the Celtic Cross for a deeper understanding of its use.)
Welcome to Part Three, the penultimate post in this Tarot Elements tutorial series, the Celtic Cross Tarot Spread – Looking Deeper. Having established the Celtic Cross Tarot Spread positions and explored their meanings in the previous post, we’re now going to take a closer look at some of those positions to see how we can further assist our client during their tarot reading, including exploring cause and effect, intention and the Law of Attraction.
From the introduction into this Tarot Elements tutorial series in Part One: How to Read the Celtic Cross Tarot Spread, I discussed the variations found in the Celtic Cross Spread, and indeed questioned the need for a significator at all; today’s tutorial will focus purely on the Celtic Cross Tarot Spread positions and their meanings. While we’re going through them, I will introduce an example tarot reading so you can see how the positions and tarot cards affect each other.
