Exercise 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). You can check my suggestions, if you wish.
