I can’t remember when I posted this online to the articles section of the O.div. I’m guessing it was sometime in 2003 or 2004. If you are unfamiliar with the positions of the Celtic Cross spread, this site gives a breakdown.

The CC (Celtic Cross) is probably one of the most famous yet reviled spreads in the tarot world. It is the spread most featured in the “little white books” and many a beginner has struggled through a CC only to give up in frustration which is why the CC draws heavy criticism from tarot users. Yet for all the criticisms levied against the CC I believe it is a powerful and useful spread that is worth the time you must put into it.
