The symbolism of the Celtic cross (especially the equal-armed cross in which each protrusion is equidistant from the center) is indicative of the human desire to know and experience the unfolding mystery of life. We could say that mystery can unfold in a 4-fold pattern in which the arms of the cross offer four ways to ascension. The Celtic Cross is probably the oldest and most popular but a difficult pattern for reading the tarot. A strong energy has built up around this spread due to its use by so many people over the years. Celtic Cross Tarot Reading is the most popular tarot reading out of the other thousand ways that tarot readers use. It is used worldwide. Its popularity is due to the fact that it works flawlessly and provides the most comprehensive and complete information for a given situation.
