The Celtic Cross spread looks busy and complicated, but anyone with an open mind and a deck of tarot cards can do it. Trust me.
Get nice and comfy before shuffling your cards. Once you start doing so, think about a situation or desire that's been on your mind. This can range from the specific — such as moving in with your partner — to more general questions, like what the next month has in store for you.
Pull a card, and place it down in the middle of the area you're working in. It represents the present, as well as your state of mind at the given moment.
Now, pull card number two, and cross it horizontally over the first card so that they cross, as seen above. Consider this one as the challenge at hand. For example, if you're doing a reading about moving in together and pull the Three of Swords as the challenge card, old heartbreak and grief may be standing in your way.
The third card you draw should go to the left of the crossed cards. This one will stand alone, and represents the past, including past events that are still affecting your situation. Now pull the fourth card and place it to the right of the crossed cards. This card shows you the future.
The fifth card is placed above the crossed first and second cards and represents "the above," which refers to your goal or desired outcome. Put the sixth card below the crossed cards as “the below,” or the truth of the situation as seen from the unconscious. It cuts through to the truth of the situation, and can often teach you lessons about yourself that your subconscious wants you to know.
On the bottom of the row to the right, which contains four cards, goes the seventh card. Consider this your "advice" and pertinent information for helping you achieve your goal. The eighth card should be set down above it to represent external influences (i.e., family, money, past trauma) affecting your situation.
Then, draw your ninth card, and place it above the external influences to show you both your hopes and fears. Remember your attitude about a situation is everything. If insecurity is holding you back, the hopes and fears card will call you out.
Finally, the last card in the Celtic Cross goes above the ninth to complete the spread. The tenth card shows you the outcome. Don't be worried if it's not what you hoped for. The Celtic Cross is designed to be read as a whole, so spend time looking at the entire spread. Do certain cards connect with one another? Are patterns present that are evident in your real-life struggles? Be honest with yourself, and be willing to learn.
Remember, tarot is fun; you don't need to take any of these spreads too seriously. None of them dictate how life will turn out, but they do offer useful witchy insight. The more you use tarot, the more it will make sense to you.

Prepare for a Tarot Reading
So you've got your Tarot deck, you've figured out how to keep it safe from negativity, and now you're ready to read for someone else. Perhaps it's a friend who's heard about your interest in Tarot. Maybe it's a coven sister in need of guidance. Perhaps–and this happens a lot–it's a friend of a friend, who has a problem and would like to see "what the future holds." Regardless, there are a few things you should do before you take on the responsibility of reading cards for another person. Be sure to read this article before you do a reading!
Basic Three Card Layout
If you want to brush up on your Tarot skills, do a reading in a hurry, or just get an answer to a very basic issue, try using this simple and basic Three Card Layout for your Tarot cards. It’s the simplest of readings, and allows you to do a basic reading in just three steps. You can use this quick method to do readings for friends and family as you brush up on your skills, or you can use it for any Querent who needs an answer in a hurry. The three cards represent the past, the present and the future.
The Seven Card Horseshoe Spread
As you develop your Tarot reading skills, you may find that you prefer one particular spread over the others. One of the most popular spreads in use today is the Seven Card Horseshoe spread. Although it utilizes seven different cards, it’s actually a fairly basic spread. Each card is positioned in a way that connects to different aspects of the problem or situation at hand.
In this version of the Seven Card Horseshoe spread, in order, the cards represent the past, the present, hidden influences, the Querent, attitudes of others, what should the querent do about the situation and the likely outcome.
The Pentagram Spread
The pentagram is a five-pointed star sacred to many Pagans and Wiccans, and within this magical symbol you'll find a number of different meanings. Think about the very concept of a star. It is a source of light, blazing in the darkness. It is something physically very far away from us, and yet how many of us have wished upon one when we saw it up in the sky? The star itself is magical. Within the pentagram, each of the five points has a meaning. They symbolize the four classical elements–Earth, Air, Fire and Water–as well as Spirit, which is sometimes referred to as the fifth element. Each of these aspects is incorporated into this Tarot card layout.
The Romany Spread
The Romany Tarot spread is a simple one, and yet it reveals a surprising amount of information. This is a good spread to use if you are just looking for a general overview of a situation, or if you have several different interconnected issues that you're trying to resolve. This is a fairly free-form spread, which leaves a lot of room for flexibility in your interpretations.
Some people interpret the Romany spread as simply past, present, and future, using the cards together in each of the three rows. The more distant past is indicated in Row A; the second row of seven, Row B, indicates issues that are presently going on with the Querent. The bottom row, Row C, uses seven more cards to indicate what is likely to take place in the person's life, if all continues along the present path. It's easy to read the Romany spread by looking simply at the past, present and future. However, you can go into more depth and get a more complex understanding of the situation if you break it down into its different aspects.
The Celtic Cross Layout
The Tarot layout known as the Celtic Cross is one of the most detailed and complex spreads used. It's a good one to use when you have a specific question that needs to be answered, because it takes you, step by step, through all the different aspects of the situation. Basically, it deals with one issue at a time, and by the end of the reading, when you reach that final card, you should have gotten through all the many facets of the problem at hand.

It's easy to fall under the spell of tarot cards: Their meanings are universal enough to apply to just about anyone, and nowadays it's easy to find and purchase a deck that fits your aesthetic to a T. But, once you decide to give them a try, how do you, you know, use them?
Tarot reader Theresa Reed tells us that it's actually quite simple to ease your way into a robust tarot practice, but there are a few tricks to making it stick. First, start small. Second, practice with clear mind. Finally, keep in mind that tarot is not a memory test.
If you're just starting out, Reed explains, don't feel like you need to go into your first reading blind. Draw a card then feel free to look it up in a tarot book or online to find its meaning. Or, if you aren't 100% clear on how to set up a certain type of spread, your reference materials almost definitely have a template for it, so consult them before laying out a dozen cards willy-nilly.
To that same end, don't try to tackle all the overarching problems in the world with a single reading. While you shuffle your deck, come up with a specific question or concern that you hope the cards will address. Reed says that practicing out of general worry or confusion will lead to a muddled and biased reading.
Ahead, we'll take a closer look at that first tip from Reed: Start small. That's your best course of action as far as creating tarot spreads (aka card formations) goes. Read on to get the lowdown on how to put your deck to use.
