Finding your way in your career is harder than ever. Linear career trajectories seem like a thing of the past. Fortunately, tarot can help.
5. Should I Quit My Job?
As mentioned in our previous post, sometimes you don’t know whether to stay or go. If you are asking whether or not you should quit your job you want clarity, this is the psychic reading for you. For this spread, you use four cards and place them in the shape of a diamond.
The first card goes on the left hand side. It represents your energy about your job at the moment. The second card goes on the bottom point of the diamond. It represents you if you stay at your job. The third card is at the top point of the diamond, it represents the direction you go if you quit. The fourth card goes on the right hand side, and this is the overall advice the spirit guides have for you.
Bonus: if you’ve decided to quit your job and want the cards insight on direction, pull three cards and place them above card three. These represent three potential new avenues for work.
Ikigai is the Japanese concept of “reason for being.” Finding your Ikigai is a great way to find direction in your career. To find your Ikegai through tarot readings, you can use this simple five card spread. In this spread, the cards will form a cross shape.
The first card goes on the left hand side, it represents the areas in life where you have a natural talent. The second card goes on the top of the cross and represents what you love in this world. The third card goes on the right hand side, it represents what the world needs at this very moment. The fourth card goes on the bottom, it indicates what you can get paid for. The fifth card goes in the very center, it represents your Ikigai.
If you have an upcoming job interview, this is a great psychic reading to prepare for it. This spread requires five cards: two on the top and three on the bottom. The spread should form the shape of a trapezoid.
The top two cards represent strengths and weaknesses, respectively. Cards three and four give you advice for the interview, and the fifth card shows the energy of the person interviewing you.
This is a useful spread for career tarot readings because while most spreads only focus on you and your abilities, this one also offers insight on the person interviewing you. It’s easy to get wrapped up in what we bring to the table that we forget to look at the person sitting across it.
2. Moving Forward
If you want a bit more detail about which direction to take your career, try this fun and creative ten card spread. In this spread, you’ll use ten cards to form an arrow pointing away from you. Starting with the first card, place four cards in a straight line. Cards five through seven form the right part of the arrow, cards eight through ten form the left part. The fifth and eighth cards should cross, forming the tip of the arrow.
The first card is where you currently are in your career. The second card is where you’d like to be. The third card is the options you can see, and the fourth card represents hidden options.
Once we get to the point of the arrow, the fifth card represents your feelings towards your options. The sixth card represents the card you’re most considering, and the seventh card advises you about important things to consider.
The eighth card, which forms the arrow tip with the fifth card, is the decision that is likely best for you. The ninth card indicates the skills you’ll want to expand to be successful. The tenth card in this psychic reading is the spirit guide’s overall advice on the matter.
