This is the most popular and well known of all the tarot spreads. It has been adapted for personal use by many readers giving it many variations. I myself use this spread with 4 passes of the cards using a total of 40 cards in the perspective positions to give a much broader picture of each position.
Card one represents your present condition or often a related question. Card two represents your current obstacles or troubles. Card three represents the best possible outcome or in some cases what is happening now depending what the cards represent to you. Card four represents the cause of your current situation. Card five represents your immediate past or as before it can represent the basis of the situations surrounding the cards, and card six represents your immediate future.
Card seven represents who you are right now in general, and how you relate to the theme of the question. Card eight represents your current surroundings in terms of family, friends, and environment that relates to your question. Card nine represents your hopes and fears in regard to the question or in general in your life at this time if you did not have a specific question. Card 10 represents the outcome in regard to the question or otherwise how this phase of your life turns out. Often there are variations to this, often in some cases position 7 and 8 can mean hopes and fears while position 9 can mean what the guides have to say in relationship to the cards.
Basically you are the reader so it’s important that the cards mean something to you in relationship to the positions they are in, this is why there are many alternate meanings to the Celtic Cross. This makes it not only a very versatile spread for a reader to use, but can carry information in the way the readers want to interpret the cards.
There is of course the most basic of all spreads, the Yes or No question, there are only 2 possible answers of yes or no. This is often not likes by many readers simply because there is nothing to tell, but the cards can be read in a couple of ways, either upright or reverse representing Yes or No, of the better way would be to take an actual look at the cards meaning and relate it to the question asked.
The list of spreads goes on and on, it’s up to the reader to decide which spreads feel best for them.
