How to Perform a Business Tarot Spread
If you prefer to perform your own tarot readings, this is the layout I like to do for focusing on the next three months in business. I use this layout for my own life and clients, either with their businesses or if they’re considering starting one.
You can adapt the spread or pull an additional clarifying card when needed. I would keep your spread focused on the topic. You don’t want to get too broad, whether it’s general profit or a specific question within the business.
Be clear about the focus of your tarot spread before touching your deck.
Card 1: Business Outlook
Your first card looks at your company’s outlook in general. This tarot card represents how things look in general. A major arcana here would be an incredibly good sign for the future but be aware that the tarot spreads real power is found in the combination. So look beyond this card.
We begin with this to get a broad idea of the business, and we’ll start digging into the specifics with the subsequent cards.
Card 2: Business Strengths
The second card from your tarot deck focuses on the strengths and edges of your business. What sets you ahead of the competition? What will the customers want to see more of?
This tarot card will give you inspiration and insight into what will make your business successful. Leaning into your strengths will be a powerful way to get ahead and might be the difference between success and failure.
Card 3: Business Weaknesses
Your third card in the business tarot looks at the weakness of your business. The pitfalls that lay before you. From lack of resources or focus to increased competition or market changes.
The tarot doesn’t just give us the answer we want to hear, nor does it give us a reading of doom and gloom. It gives us both tips and hope on how to unlock our future.
Understanding the obstacles in your business will allow you to prepare and overcome them. Plan ahead for them before they even arise.
Card 4: Guidance on Moving Forward
If you choose to use a significator card to represent you, then your fourth card will give you advice on what it takes to make the business a success. If you don’t represent yourself in the business tarot reading, then it’s advice on what the business as a whole should do.
This guidance card should incorporate the previous two cards. Work with your strengths and be conscious of your weaknesses. This tarot card may give you the courage to take risks and warn you when it’s time to play it safe.
Card 5: Support System
The fifth card from your tarot deck focuses on those in your life who can help your business survive. It could be a business partner, a spouse, a friend, or even a loyal customer spreading the word for you.
This isn’t to say you need anyone but yourself, but just like luck, practice and mindset – every little edge you can give yourself might go a long way, and there might be somebody who can help propel you forward if you let them.
This tarot card acknowledges that doing everything yourself isn’t always the best strategy. Lean on those who are there for you, both emotionally and practically, with your business.
Card 6: Final Outcome
The final card from this tarot spread focuses on the potential outcome of your business in the next three months.
Your final card look at the long-term outcome of your business. It gives you insight into the foreseeable future and might be the most important in the spread.
(Optional) Card 7: Clarity
You can pull an optional final card for clarity if something specific has come up during your spread. Just be clear about what you want to clarify before pulling the card, and keep it focused on the business and nothing too personal.
If your clarifying cards get too broad or off-topic, then you should do a separate tarot spread afterward.
Asking the Tarot: Should I Start a New Business?
If you’re considering starting a new venture, but you’re not sure if it’s going to be worth your time creating and whether or not it will succeed, then business tarot spreads can help point you in the right direction at least.
It might not be able to give you a simple yes or no answer, but it isn’t a simple yes or no question.
The tarot cards can’t do all the work for you, but they can encourage you to work hard to make your business successful and help you see where you need to focus your energy.
Once you’ve drawn your cards, take some time to meditate on each card and the meaning they bring. Journaling or talking with a trusted friend can be very helpful in understanding the meaning behind each card and how it may apply to your business.
Simple Three-Card Business Tarot Spread
The three-card reading is also an option if you want a quick and simple spread. This gives an accurate answer, but I’ll leave it to you to decide how deep you want to go on your journey.
You can extend this reading to four cards with an additional qualifying card, but if it isn’t painting a clear path for you, I’d suggest taking the time with the complete spread.
Important Tarot Cards for Businesses
Every card is important in a tarot spread (not just the major arcana cards), but these ones can be interpreted in very specific ways for this tarot spread.
The High Priestess
This major arcana card is known for intuition, spiritual awareness and inner knowing. For a CEO or founder, it’s often a reminder to sometimes let your intuition or ‘gut feeling’ call the shots.
This does not mean you should throw logic and reason out of the window but allow yourself some freedom and creativity to create the business that speaks to you.
Not a tarot card people would often associate with business, but this major arcana can represent the completion of a project or the successful launch of a product.
This can be a very positive sign.
This card is associated with abundance and creativity. It’s not only a sign of success, but of the growth potential you have to take things further than you might have originally planned.
Sometimes the tarot can raise more questions than it answers. Rather than branch your existing reading to become too broad, a separate reading might help you dig deeper.
