The Past Life reading can give insight into the very basic question of “Why am I here?” It can help to point out hidden talents, attitudes, and karma that the individual has brought into this lifetime. It can also gives clues as to what should be accomplished in this lifetime.
A modified Celtic Cross spread is used for this reading; only cards in Positions One through Six are laid out on the table. The positions and definitions of each position are outlined below.
