Many attach a detailed meaning to the horizontal cross - it is a symbol of Jesus finishing his work. Having obtained his peoples' salvation, he has laid down his cross. Another symbolic view is that a cross lies horizontal when someone is carrying it on their shoulders. As well, the side cross can show one’s readiness for the coming of God, with the cross facing Him at Final Judgement.
Some people take a more humanistic approach when viewing the meaning behind the side cross. To these people, the horizontal cross symbolizes representation on earth and this is where life is lived. As well, the cross on its side is a symbol of humanity living between heaven and hell.
