I was searching on the net for difrent tarot spreads. The book I have with the celtic spread is laid out diffrent from what I found on the web. It's the same format but a few card placements are differnt. are there different variations for this spread?
To be completely honest the structure of any spread is just a general guideline. Where the specific cards go is completely up to you. While you are shuffling layout in your mind the spread and what each card will represent when you put it down, then as you lay it down say in your mind what it represents. For example past, present, future, individuals energy, forces playing on the situation, etc. This is why you will see variations on where the cards go in a spread while keeping the general structure. I hope this helps. Feel free to message me if you have more questions
