Exercises - Lesson 16

Position Pairs in the Celtic Cross

Exercise 1 - Traditional Position Pairs in the Celtic Cross

Create a Celtic Cross layout using any ten cards from the deck placed face down. For each of the six situations below, do the following:

  • Imagine you are doing a Celtic Cross reading, and you have drawn the two cards listed under (A).
  • Find these cards and place them face up in the positions indicated. (Remove the cards that are there.)
  • Write a short interpretation of these two cards as a pair. Use the examples in lesson 16 as a model.
  • Turn these cards face down.
  • For extra practice, repeat steps 1-4 using the second set of cards (B).
