There are a lot of reasons why people consult tarot cards, but the top two reasons are love and money. Finding a job in this economy isn’t easy, and it makes sense that you might reach out and try to get a little help along the way. Consulting the cards is a painless way to see if you are on the right path or if you need to make some adjustments before you get there, but if you don’t know anything about the cards you won’t know if the ones that show up in your next reading are telling you what you need to know. So here’s a quick run-down of the best minor arcana cards to have show up in your spread if you’re looking for a new job.
Ace of Pentacles
The Ace of Pentacles is the card of opportunity. When this card shows up you know something new and bright is on the horizon for you, a sure sign that a job offer is on the way.
Two of WandsThe Two of Wands is a card of wisdom, and when this card shows up it could mean one of two things. The first is that you need to advance your education before you land on the job of your dreams, meaning you may want to return to school or seek out some kind of certification before moving forward. The second is that you may need to do some traveling to find the position you want. Broaden your job search and see where the wind takes you.
Ten of Pentacles
The Ten of Pentacles is a great card to get in any spread where the focus is some kind of success, because it’s the kingpin of accomplishments.

Someone who thinks well of you is going to be the reason you land your next job.
Eight of Wands
When the Eight of Wands appears in your spread you should be looking internationally for job opportunities. Consider countries where your profession is strong and take a look. You should expect your career opportunities to move quickly, so act fast.

If you’re considering starting your own business with a friend, this is a strong friend that the venture is worth it. After all, nothing beats ditching a job hunt because you created a successful job of your own.
