Tarot Card Tips, Spreads & Meanings

  1. 2. Introduction To The tarot
  2. 3. The Celtic Cross Spread
  3. 4. The Celtic Cross Spread <ul><li>The Celtic Cross (sometimes called the Grand Cross) is probably the most common spread used to read the Tarot, though it is not the easiest to master. It is sometimes stated that this spread is best suited to answering a specific question, but in actual fact it works very well for general readings too. The compelling mixture of predictive positions and positions that explore the motivations, consequences and interrelations behind and between the important factors at work make the Celtic Cross an extremely valuable spread. Ten cards are selected at random then interpreted in turn according to their positions. </li></ul>
  4. 5. The Covering 1 <ul><li>The card in the Covering position highlights the important events, issues, attitudes or influences around the question or current situation. </li></ul>
  5. 6. The Crossing 2 <ul><li>The Crossing card deals with obstacles, problems, conflicts or opposition that must be dealt with in order to get the most from your present circumstances. </li></ul>
  6. 7. The Crown 3 <ul><li>The card in the Crown position suggests the best that is likely to be achieved or attained from your current position, and it can indicate the most promising way forward as well as pitfalls to be avoided. </li></ul>
  7. 8. The Root 4 <ul><li>The Root card deals with past events or influences that have played an important part in bringing about the current situation, and these influences are still likely to have an effect now. </li></ul>
  8. 9. The Past 5 <ul><li>The card in the Past position highlights events or influences from the more recent past that have influenced the present but are now likely to be passing away. </li></ul>
  9. 10. The Future 6 <ul><li>The card in the Future position suggests fresh influences or events that are about to come into play and are likely to operate in the near future </li></ul>
  10. 11. The Questioner 7 <ul><li>The card in the Questioner position concerns your attitude and how you relate to your question or circumstances. This card is connected with the card in the Covering position, but whereas the Covering card deals more with the underlying reality of your situation, the Questioner card relates more to your views or wishes about this situation. </li></ul>
  11. 12. The House 8 <ul><li>The card in the House position is concerned with how other people around you affect, influence or view your circumstances or concerns. </li></ul>

  13. 14. The Outcome 10 <ul><li>The Outcome card suggests the eventual outcome of events shown by the other cards. By taking heed of the influences, advice and warnings suggested by all the cards in the reading, you can work to ensure a positive outcome or avoid a less desirable one. </li></ul>

  104. 105. 3 Card Spread <ul><li>The Simple Spread is a relatively quick and easy way to get an overview of the important issues surrounding a particular question or the questioner's current situation. While there are quite a number of variations of three-card spreads, perhaps the most common deals with the past, the present and the future. For the Simple Spread, three cards are selected at random; the first dealing with past influences that have shaped the present, the second covering the current situation, and the third highlighting fresh influences that may come into play in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>The Root (Left) </li></ul><ul><li>The Root card deals with past events or influences that have played an important part in bringing about the current situation, and these influences are still likely to have an effect now. </li></ul><ul><li>The Covering (Center) </li></ul><ul><li>The card in the Covering position highlights the important events, issues, attitudes or influences around the question or current situation. </li></ul><ul><li>The Future (Right) </li></ul><ul><li>The card in the Future position suggests fresh influences or events that are about to come into play and are likely to operate in the near future. </li></ul>
  105. 106. Byzant's Triskele Spread <ul><li>Just as the figure from which this spread gets its name consists of three branches radiating from a common center, so Byzant's Triskele Spread shows present concerns at the focal point of past, future and ultimate influences. This compact yet powerful spread is well-suited to addressing specific issues and for more general readings. Five cards are selected at random then interpreted in turn according to their positions. </li></ul>Card Positions Explained on Next 5 Slides

  113. 114. Simple Calendar Spread <ul><li>The Simple Calendar Spread is an easy way of obtaining a fixed-period forecast using the Tarot. A single card is selected at random for every day, week or month covered by the reading, along with a final card, in center position, that sums everything up. Each card indicates the important events, issues, attitudes or influences surrounding the day, week or month in question, and the final card encapsulates the overall influences and outcome of the entire period. </li></ul>

The first and most important card of each pair indicates the main events, issues, attitudes or influences surrounding the time in question. The second highlights potential obstacles, problems, conflicts and opposition that may be encountered. The final card sums up the overall influences and outcome of the complete period. </li></ul>
