Celtic Cross Spread

Spreads, Virtual Reader | 0 comments

Purpose of the spread:

The celtic cross is both simple and detailed. It helps give context to a question by looking at the big picture and influences.

What you will find out:

This spread gives a snapshot of the current state, but also offers the hidden context and external influences. It will give you practical advice


How to pose the question:

  • I find the Celtic Cross is better geared towards big-picture questions where you can get a large snapshot as well as more personal insight. Though it can be used to answer any question, it tends to give you more to chew on than if you’re looking for a quick and direct answer
