Celtic Cross Tarot Reading

The Celtic Cross is a traditional Tarot layout for general readings. When a question has been posed, it reveals answers in a relative detail. It can also be used for “open readings” without posing a question; the cross will help you identify and contextualize matters that you may or may not have been aware of.
