The Celtic Cross is one of the most in-depth draws a reader can use. For the querent (the person asking the question), it can be most illuminating!
This has been a crazy year. It doesn’t matter that astrologists knew something would be going down. There is no way we could have been prepared for a worldwide shutdown. As the days get further from Day Zero of the Shutdown, it’s only natural to wonder where we are headed.
I have been using the Tarot along with my Faith in God, to guide my life for the last 5 years. Why should today be any different?
Here is Eternal Tarot’s Celtic Cross Outlook for the remainder of 2020:
Celtic Cross Outlook Rest of Year
Heart: 8 Swords Reversed
Preparing for change and the actions followed by big decisions. Using courage to move past fears. It is time to move forward even if you are unsure about the future. Certainty is an illusion as we can never be prepared for everything that can happen. Know that when we need help, help is available. All you have to do is ask.
Cross: Ace of Cups
New beginnings, usually within the realm of love. Great time to make friends. General goodwill in the air. Feeling good about life!
Root: Knight Swords
Physical, spiritual and emotional energy at a peak. Positive news on the way. Feelings of accomplishment. The right person coming along. Felling swept of your feet with good news.
Past: Queen Pentacles R
Finding joy in the everyday and beauty in the simplicity of life. The extra time we have had to appreciate the world around us. In reverse, we are asked to pay attention to our home lives.
Attitudes & Beliefs: Queen of Cups
Love compassion and concern fro ourselves and our fellow man. Representing a female with lighter hair. The women in your life fully support you. There is a lot of female energy on your side. Treat yourself with love and compassion, you’re worthy of it.
Future: 8 Wands R
Patience. Are you using your personal energy efficiently? Are you making forward movement? If you’re feeling guilty about the past: what good can that do? Will it change it? Forgive yourself and maintain connection to your conscience.
You: Knight Pentacles
Good news in regards to money will be arriving! This good news is the result of hard work and laborious efforts. In other words: you earned it bayby! Make sure that you are taking care of the details in your work.
Environment: Hierophant R
Confusion about the right thing to do. This indicates needing to do more research and find out more information before making a decision. This card can also indicate being misunderstood. If you’re just a soul whose intentions are good….then so what.
Hopes & Fears: 10 Swords
Being wary of who and what to trust. When this is the case, rely on someone you care about: you. Trust yourself when you have no one to trust.
Outcome: 5 Pentacles R
The appearance of concrete new prospects. Moving away from fear and insecurity with renewed confidence. Trust all good feelings at this time. The time has come to rejoice.
Extract of Reading
aka What does this all mean?
Knowing it’s time to move on.
New beginnings and feeling good about life!
But having a hard time acknowledging blessings due to worry and fear of the unknown.
Positive news and fortunate meetings have given us reason to celebrate the things we are presently overlooking.
We have recently learned how to appreciate the small lovely details of life during our time at home due to the coronavirus.
We are feeling more love towards ourselves and towards our community. Surrounded by loving feminine energy.
We will need to take note of how efficient we are being with our energy. Self-forgiveness with lots of patience will be important in order to heal.
The hard work you have been putting in will soon bear fruit.
There may be some confusion and misunderstandings in your life about what is the right thing to do. Ask more questions.
All in all: the outlook is good! Things will be looking up! Keep counting your blessings and focus on the good!
As a practitioner of cartomancy and energy work; I believe in individualism. I will explain what the Celtic Cross Spread is, what it means to me, and the method that I employ when doing this reading. If you are familiar with a different way, that’s groovy too. Life is so vast, not one path is the path for all.
The Celtic Cross is seen in A. E. Waite’s “The Pictorial Key to the Tarot” published in 1910. Mr. Waite claims to have learned about the spread from private individuals throughout England, Scotland and Ireland according to Juliette Wood in her essay “Secret Traditions in the Modern Tarot: Folklore and the Occult Revival.”
What I certainly know, is that this spread is popular! It has some variations here and there but mostly sticks to the same components. Such as:
Heart of the Matter.
Cross or Blockage
Attitudes and Beliefs
Hopes and Fears
10 cards to really see every aspect of a question. Nothing left hidden.
This spread is excellent when you want to know how something started, why it started, what will happen, what you can do and how it will end. In other words, when you want to know everything.
The Past, Present, Future (PPF) Draw is one of the simplest and most effective draws. As the name states: it speaks on the past, the present, and the future (if nothing is changed).
Right? You get it. But what does that mean?
I like to look at it as
Past= Where you are coming from.
Present= Where you are at?
Future= Where you are going?
What I love about the PPF is that it gives you a great temperature check and shows you were you need to place your focus.
The idea of the future being set in stone is scary and not true. You are blessed with Free Will. The smallest well intentioned change will have a big effect. Believe.
The drawing pictured is for my followers and my readers for the week of May 11th, 2020.
Past: 8 Pentacles Reversed
Feeling unmotivated to make money. Losing sight of long term goals. This also indicates a time of asking for help and guidance. Take your time while working on your goals, no need to rush.
Present: 2 Swords Reversed
Feeling out of touch with your emotions. Be alert; there are untrustworthy characters around. Double think commitments. This energy is precarious. People who make promises and do not keep them are not to be trusted.
Future: 3 Cups Reversed
Pleasant reunions. Enjoying community and friendship. A great time to work on our bonds so we do not go on “alone”. Reach out to the important people of your life in the best way you can.
It’s happened: you got The Tower when asking about your current situation.
Surely this means the worst?
Actually, no. You’re in luck because you have free will! This means that you can change the outcome of your future with any changes you make.
So you got The Tower when asking about your relationship. If ending the relationship is what you really want, then do nothing. If the relationship means a lot to you: change. Stop assuming, start asking.
The tarot is only a tool. You are the one who wields it.
Tarot is an ancient tool that has been used to explore within, receive guidance and foretell of events. The tarot is made up of 78 cards. Each card depicting an image that evokes primal memories. The tarot being a tool, can be used for any number of things.
