The Celtic Cross is considered to be the most common spread used in reading tarot cards. It uses 10 tarot cards. This type of spread is used for answering specific questions, and to read the querent’s profile.
This spread uses 10 cards for tarot readings and these are arranged in two separate patterns. 6 cards are used to create an even sided cross and the remaining 4 cards are placed vertically on the right hand side of the cross. This card arrangement entails careful constitution. One card to signify the seeker, the next card to signify the query of the seeker, and the rest of the cards are positioned to represent the step-by-step process of how the seeker can achieve the answer to his or her query. This spread is, by far, one of the most commonly seen among experienced interpreters of tarot readings.
