CELTIC CROSS TAROT CARD READING
Together these 10 cards provide deep and profound insight into the situation at hand.
Card 1: The present- This card represents what is happening at the present time. It also reflects your current state of mind and how you may be perceiving the situation.
Card 2: The challenge- This card represents the immediate challenge or problem you are facing. This is the one thing that, if resolved, would make life a lot easier. Even if you receive a ‘positive’ card in this position, consider it carefully as it will still represent a challenge.
Card 3: The past- This card represents the events that have lead up to the present situation and may provide some indication of how the challenge came about.
Card 4: The future- This card represents what is likely to occur within the next few weeks or even months. This is not the final outcome, simply the next step on the journey.
Card 5: Above- This card reflects the goal, aspiration or best outcome with regards to the situation. It is what you are working towards consciously as you attempt to resolve the issue.
Card 6: Below- This card reflects that which is within the subconscious realm and delves much deeper into the core foundation of the situation. It symbolizes the underlying feelings and trends associated with the situation and can indicate what is truly driving you. This card may bring a surprise message, particularly if you are not deeply connected to your inner being (watch out for reversed cards here which are likely to indicate that this is an ‘unknown’ to you).
Card 7: Advice- The advice card takes into account all that is happening within your life and presents a recommendation for what approach can be taken to address the current challenges.
Card 8: External influences- This card highlights the people, energies or events which will affect the outcome of the question and are beyond your control.
Card 9: Hopes and/or fears- This card reveals your hopes and fears that may be affecting the outcome. Keep in mind that hopes and fears are closely intertwined, therefore that which we hope for may also be that which we fear, and so may fail to happen.
Card 10: Outcome- This card is representative of where the situation is headed and if/how the issue will be resolved. It assumes the outcome based on your current course of action. Of course, if the outcome card is not a desirable outcome, it is within your free will to make the necessary changes to your situation.
