Laying Out the Cards

Follow the steps for the spread you have chosen. If this is your first reading, use the Celtic Cross. (Before actually laying out the cards, read the next step, "Responding to the Cards.")

Pick up the deck and hold it in one hand with the short edge closest to you.

With your other hand, turn over the first card as you would the page of a book.

Place this card in Position 1.

(The position number corresponds to the placement order.)

Turn over the second card, and place it in Position 2.

Continue in this way until you have placed all the cards.

Turn any reversed cards around if you are not using them.
