Celtic Cross - aspects/meanings for health, relationships etc.

Postby Blade » Fri 09 Feb, 2018 11:03 am

I was wondering in what placements one is "supposed to mention" the aspects; - relationships, career, business, finance, health, etc?

I will use High Priestess here, to simply show an example of the different aspects that are typically available for each card. The thing is though, that this is just one of the cards, out of 10-12 cards, that might appear in a Celtic Cross spread.

High Priestess - meanings/aspects

General: This is a time to rely on your intuition and your inner knowledge, rather than your conscious mind or intellect. Pay attention to your dreams. Synchronicities are likely now. When the High Priestess appears in a man's reading, she also often represents a woman that he will want badly; but whom he may not be able to get.

Work: It's possible that a pleasant surprise will be coming your way soon in regard to work. This could even be a new job opportunity. You may come up with some new systems or processes that make your work life simpler and less stressful. Ignore workplace gossip and certainly don't get involved in it.

Love: This can be a magical, mystical time for love. If you date women, you could well be interested in a woman who is distant and unapproachable. Trust your instincts. If you are a woman, you may well find people basically literally throwing themselves at you. Use this power wisely- it's potent!

Finances: Someone may not be being completely honest with you in regard to finances. You may not have all the information that you need. Don't be afraid to dig deep, and to do your own investigating. Be sure, when it comes to financial transactions, that you give out only the information that is needed and no more.

Health: There may be information about your health that has not yet come to light. If you feel that something is amiss with your body, believe in your concerns and advocate for yourself. You may need to see a different health care practitioner. Trust yourself. If a procedure or test that is suggested to you doesn't "feel right," don't feel that you have to go through with it. Be sure that you are supporting yourself as best you can with diet, exercise, and vitamins/minerals.

Spirituality: Messages can come to you from all sorts of places. Make a point to look at spirituality in ways that you have not done before. Talk to people whose experiences and beliefs are different than your own. Move out of your comfort zone. You'll be all the richer for it

I have a friend in Sweden who, when she does the Celtic Cross, reads every card in there separate placements and then reads the:

- crown/above position as Health,

- below position as Love anad Relationships

- past position asEconomy and Finance

- future position as Work/Career and Spirituality

Something doesn´t sit right with this. Do you have any suggestions?

Would appreciate replies on this subject.

Hi Blade, for me it would be based on the question asked, and/or my own intuition, or what fit how the reading was flowing. I don't typically use aspects individually, but what feels right for the querent, question, position.

However if you are doing a reading on a specific aspect, then I would use those meanings adjusted for the position it fell in. However how your friend is doing the spread reading is correct for her. I've done 3x3 grids and read them with different positional meanings. If it works for you as well use it, if it doesn't, then let it go and work how works best for you. :-)

There is no one way/right way in tarot.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry it took so long. Been having some PC issues.
