Cartomancy Spreads

Cut the Deck

This is probably the oldest form of cartomancy, dating back to the 16th century at least. People would cut the deck to pull one card, essentially to test whether their luck was running high, before making a decision. Similar principles led to the development of solitaire games in the 17th century.

Triptych

Without reversing the cards, tells the past, present, and future.

Celtic Cross (with Reversal)

The Celtic Cross method of reading tarot cards is probably the most common one in use today. It was popularized by A. E. Waite in his book The Pictorial Guide to the Tarot, which was published in 1911. There are many variations on this spread, but the one presented here is based on the description provided by Waite, updated to be more readable to a modern audience.
