Business Check-In Tarot Spread

Last Updated: October 26, 2022

When you are working for yourself, or even trying to work with your business partners, divination can give you the extra push to make the right decision. Now I just want to clarify that method divination isn’t always about doing things, but can actually help you decide what not to do so that you don’t end up wasting time and effort on something that isn’t going to work. 

It does this by hashing out details and sharing awareness with you, a perspective, that you may not be able to see.

Divination can also help you to see if your ideas are crazy or not, it can show you the potential of what might be. Business specific divination can actually give you great insight into what may happen in your long term strategy and therefore help you to plan for the best, prepare for the worst and develop contingency plans so that thing will happen then you know you can avoid any pitfalls that may come your way.

As the future is never set in stone, divination allows you to see all of the possibilities right now and to make an informed decision from there as things are in this present moment. If divination shows that a certain negative situation is on the horizon then it’s best to know about it, and act on it now, as prevention is always better than a cure.

How tarot can help you in business decisions is by providing the exploratory insight into areas you didn’t think to look toward and by answering the questions you didn’t think to ask. Find the Magician tarot card, and the card behind it is a lesson you need to remember for any challenges to come. Find the Justice card, and the card in front of you is where you need to balance out your energy (bonus points if it is the Two of Pentacles, you need to do some financial admin, my friend!). You can ask the Universe for general guidance, or for what changes to contemplate, or to see what the reaction to a new product idea may be.

Here is a 6-card Business Audit tarot spread that can offer some immediate insight into your current offerings, current product range, even a small business idea if you have not yet got started.

Tarot for business planning is great, but an audit or “check-up” of your business health makes for a magickal boosting for abundance. It can highlight key strengths to utilise more often for sales performances, it can share with you any areas of your business you need to bring attention to; for example, finances or marketing.

This business tarot checkup can also help you find the gaps in what you are offering that need filling, the disconnects that the divination brings to light, and any areas where divination shows new opportunities to make money hidden within your current stock or current skill set.

It’s up to you whether divination comes before or after a small business decision; sometimes divining first can give you an idea of what problems may arise if that decision is made, which is why I mentioned earlier about working with partners (it’s a great opportunity to explore all options presented by all parties, either way).

Tarot for business decisions as a divination method is not intrusive and divining does not try to change your mind; it presents the information you need in order to make those choices yourself, as divination is never prescriptive (unless that’s precisely what you asked for).

What to do after this tarot reading

After you’ve finished a tarot reading, there are a few things you can do in order to reflect on the experience and integrate the insights you gained. Here are some suggestions:

Use a tarot journal to record your findings

Jotting down your thoughts in a tarot journal after reading can be helpful in a few ways. First, it can help you remember the details of your reading later on, such as how you felt at the moment and perhaps your first impressions of what a card meant. Second, it can provide a space for you to process the information you’ve received and explore what it means for you. Third, it can be a way to keep track of your progress over time as you revisit your journal entries and reflect on your journey.

Take a picture of the cards

If you want to remember the position of the cards and what they meant in relation to your questions, take a picture of the spread. This will help you look back on the reading later and review the insights you received. Sometimes, clarity is better acquired after you’ve stepped back from the situation for a little while and had some time to process it.

Some people create Instagram accounts or Pinterest accounts specifically for this, and if you use any of our spreads please tag us @backyardbanshee if you feel comfortable!

Take some time to meditate and reflect

Immediately after a tarot reading, it’s important to take some time to sit with the insights you’ve received. This can be done through proper meditation, visualisation, or simply taking some time to reflect on the reading. It can be helpful to think about what the messages from the cards mean for your life and how you can apply the advice that was given to you. That time can also be used to replenish your energy level and cleanse your tarot deck.

Get a second opinion from a close friend

If you have close friends who also happen to be tarot practitioners, it can be helpful to get their take on your reading. They may be able to offer additional insights or perspectives that you hadn’t considered before. This is also a good way to get feedback on your own interpretation of the cards.

Ensure to ask permission before just blindly sending your cards across in a message and saying “what does this mean to you?” as your friends may not have the energy or have a boundary with this sort of thing – manners cost nothing, and this is especially to note if they are a professional tarot reader who normally gets paid to interpret readings.

Layer your reading with more divination

Why not try adding astrology dice or a pendulum reading to your tarot session? Your intuition will guide you on how to best use these tools, but they can be helpful in providing more clarity around the messages from your tarot reading. We have lots of methods for you to utilise here on the website.

Do the same reading a month later

This is a great way to check in on your progress and see how far you’ve come. It can also be helpful in understanding the cyclical nature of our lives and how our current situation is likely to change over time. This can be especially useful if you’re struggling with a decision or trying to figure out which path to take as to offer suggestions, provide perspective and encourage your confidence to move forward.

At the end of the day, tarot readings are meant to be a helpful tool, not a replacement for your own intuition. The best way to use tarot is to combine the insights you receive with your own understanding of the situation. Trust your gut and follow your heart—the answers you’re looking for will come.
