General Cross Meaning
Many will mistake The Cross as representing something favorable. In modern times, we associate crosses with Jesus, rightfulness and helping others. Sadly, in Lenormand Cross reflects the more negative face of crucifixion. When you think of The Cross, think of Jesus wondering through the streets with a cross strapped to his back while he bleeds to death.
In Lenormand, Cross is the card of suffering and struggles. It will be the crosses which you bear in life. If something is going to be more of a burden than it is worth, Cross will pop up in your reading.
Sometimes, the Cross card is the sacrifices you're making. Just like Jesus died for our sins, you will have to give up something major for something else to be a success. A project may cost you a lot more than you expect.
The odd time, this card can inject an air of religion to your life. The Cross card can embody religion, philosophy, belief and symbolism. Therefore, the odd time that The Cross doesn't represent a negative meaning in your Lenormand reading, it could be predicting spirituality.
Specific Cross Meanings

Career Meaning: Sometimes Cross will appear when you're about to be in trouble at work. Alternatively, you may be playing the martyr or acting as a scapegoat.
