Do you feel ‘stuck’ in your career doing something that might pay the bills but doesn’t nourish the soul?
Do you know deep down that you are meant to be doing something different with your working life, but you can’t quite put your finger on it?
Do you feel like you’re being ‘called’ to a completely new career path, but you don’t know how to take your first step?
At some stage or another in our lives, we reach a point where we really question our career paths and ask ourselves if there is something else we ought to be doing to earn an income while serving the community.
It’s at times like these that we can turn to the Tarot to help us find the deep insight and clarity we need. The Tarot can help you find a job you love, simply by asking the right questions and listening in to its soulful advice.
Here are 5 ways to find a job you love with Tarot.
1. Discover Your Passions
What is it that you really love doing? You know – the thing that makes you want to keep working on a project, even when everyone has gone home or gone to bed, or the thing that just lights you up when you talk about it to friends and family.
To discover where your true passions lie, ask the Tarot, “What am I truly passionate about?” and “How can I share my passions with the wider community in a meaningful and valuable way?” Draw 1-2 cards for each question and meditate on each individual card for insight. How does this also match up with what you know about yourself?
2. Tap Into Your Talents
Being aware of where your true talents lie is key to being able to find the perfect vocation. You need to play to your strengths, and optimize your skills.
Draw two Tarot cards to represent your talents, and draw a further card to understand what you need to do to tap into those talents.
Take note of any Tarot cards that are reversed. This often indicates latent talents – those strengths that are unknown or that you’re unaware of. Bringing them into conscious awareness means that you can make the most of them.
3. Envision Your Best Working Environment
Using the Tarot cards, you can find out what type of company, industry, boss or location will suit you best. Draw one card each for these factors, or add your own factors. You will start to form a realistic picture of where you will do your best work.
4. Develop an Action Plan
Success doesn’t just happen – it’s planned for.
Draw three Tarot cards to understand what you need to do to find a job you love. Be on the look out for Tarot cards that may indicate how to go about finding a job, such as using a recruitment agency, online job search, personal networks, etc.
For example, the Three of Cups or the Queen of Wands emphasizes the importance of social networking. The Hierophant or Three of Pentacles points to being a part of a professional association. The Three of Wands suggests online job search with a possibility of working overseas. And the Emperor or Hierophant may indicate a recruitment agency.
5. Know What to Expect
If you like to use your Tarot cards for future guidance or prediction, draw one card for each week or month ahead, depending on how soon you wish to find your dream job.
Even if you don’t get the Ace of Pentacles right away (a great card for a new job!), you can identify any potential issues that might arise and plan ahead so that you can easily overcome these issues. You may also need a change of strategy if you’re struggling to see a positive outcome. Be sure to use the Tarot as a tool for empowerment as well as prediction.
