One of my favourite readings is the Celtic Cross layout; and not just because I am from the North of Ireland!
It is a really great spread for specific issues and also for general readings.
I shy away from asking a client at the start of the reading if they have a specific question. Usually I will ask if they want me to tell them what the cards are saying or if they have an area they want to focus on.
Lots of clients are loath to bring up the area that they really want to, because they don’t want to seem ‘silly’ (generally because it is about love and romance!) so this spread is great for covering all aspects of a certain issue or for discovering the issue that is preying on their minds.
I don’t always use spreads in readings, but when I pick up that someone is holding back from asking what they really want to know this is a great spread to help them feel more comfortable about opening up to the Universe and allowing the cards to give them the information and guidance they need.
#1: The issue
#2: What is making the issue smaller or bigger or what is clarifying or disguising the issue
#3: The things that are unconsciously influencing the issue
#4: The things that are consciously influencing the issue
#5: The old patterns or ways that the client has fallen into
#6: The new way forward
#7: How the client feels about the issues; their attitudes and feelings
#8: What the client is attracting to them at this time
#9: What the client wants or is denying at this time
#10: The outcome – the key to the issue.
I have found that a lot of clients just need someone to listen to them and to give them insight into their situation and if I can do that in a way that shows I care, then they become a regular caller. I get callers ringing back just to let me know an update on their situation or to delve more deeply into it. And that is great; we have connected and they feel safe in opening up to me and trust me to give them the truth from the cards that helps them move forward into the joy and love of life that is theirs for the taking.
