My Celtic Cross Tarot for Windows 8 is now available in the Store as a free download.
One of my recent pet projects I have been working on in my spare time (to put the new Surface Pro to good use…) was to create an implementation of the classic “Celtic Cross” Tarot that would guide the user step by step through a reading, even for users that have no previous knowledge of Tarot readings.
The app makes use of the “Sharing Charm” in Windows 8 to allow the user to share the result so it can be kept it for further reference.
I added some visual effects but left out sound so the app wouldn’t seem too much like a game.
It uses the classic Rider-Waite deck and way of interpreting the major Tarot Arcana, including the differentiation between normal and reversed cards.
The app can be downloaded for free here, if you want to give it a try: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/celtic-cross-tarot/1d584f86-3e18-44e7-bade-179f7b89585f
Begin the reading by asking your question.
See the meaning of each card while you select it from the deck.
After all ten cards has been selected, each card is revealed and its reading is presented.
In the end, the full reading is summarized.
You can share the question and the reading using Windows 8’s share charm.
