Business success tarot spread layout & questions to ask

I created this tarot spread for business in the hopes that either in your first-year struggles or even just getting it off the ground, I can help you find clarity for moving forward. Just by starting a business, as tough as it can be, you need to know that you are a successful business owner. You created this, you did the thing! I hope the cards show you swift insight for your biz!

To begin, shuffle your tarot deck and draw a card for each position as shown in the below layout.

Finally, take some time to reflect on the questions that each card position represents and what message the tarot cards in that position might be trying to tell you. If you’re just starting to learn tarot, or if you’re still getting to know your deck, you may find my in-depth articles on the meanings of every tarot card helpful.

Tarot Card #1: Problems I may encounter when starting my business

This card represents the main problem you will face when starting your business. It’s not meant to scare you, but rather gives you a heads up so that you can be prepared.

This is the card of obstacles, and it shows what will get in your way as you’re trying to make your business succeed. This could be something internal, like self-doubt, or external, like not having the right resources.

Tarot Card #2: Overcoming obstacles in business

This card represents how you can overcome the obstacle in front of you. It’s a message of hope, telling you that it is possible to overcome whatever is holding you back. Take some time to meditate on these cards and see what guidance they have for you and your business.

Tarot Card #3: Why isn't my business working

This card may show you what’s really going on behind the scenes. It’s possible that you’re not facing the real problem, or that there’s something else going on that you’re not aware of.

This is a tough card to see, but it’s important to look at the situation honestly. If your business isn’t working, what could be the reason?

Tarot Card #4: For guidance

Piggybacking on from the last card, here is your card for how to address things that aren’t working for you, and a possible course of action.

Tarot Card #5: How to make my business succeed

Our final card is the “how to make my business succeed”, and it offers some practical advice on what you can do to increase your chances of success.

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.

Some non-magickal things you can do to make your business more successful are:

  • Believe in yourself, you’re the one who got you this far!
  • Stay positive, because if it feels like the end… it’s probably not! Onwards and upwards <3
  • Focus on your goals, and ask for support along the way!
  • Stay on top of your research, as we don’t know everything – even as experts in the industry!
  • Get help from others, it takes a village!
