I’m sure you’ve noticed, but I LOVE tarot cards. Not just for my personal life, but I use them everyday to help me find focus and direction with my business.

When you work alone, it can be tricky to have 100% confidence in the decisions you make. You can find yourself second guessing new ideas or new directions you want to take. The tarot cards (for me anyway) are a tool to help me find confidence within myself, ensure I’m prioritising the right things and being mindful of the process of owning my own business.

Now, I want to help other solopreneurs to find the same comfort and support from tarot cards that I do. So, here are five ways you can use tarot cards to plan business growth and manage your day-to-day business tasks.

Finding focus for your day

One of the main ways I use tarot cards for my business, is through daily three card readings. I like to use the cards to find a singular focus for my day, help me realise what I need to pay attention to and be mindful of the obstacles that could pop up throughout the day.

This really helps me to tackle tasks head on and allows me to create a more positive mindset, with which to tackle my mountain of work. This simple three card spread is ideal for keeping you mindful all day and allowing you to spot issues before they can arise.

Setting business intentions

Using tarot cards, I can also set an overall intention for my business. I can ask the cards to help me better understand my target audience and ask them how I can ensure I keep my wellbeing a priority, as I set out on this journey.

When you’re so involved in your own business, it can be easy to lose track of the big picture. Using tarot as a business tool means that I can always check in and make sure I’m focusing my energy in the most effective areas.

Using the Celtic Cross spread for yearly reviews

I did this at the beginning of 2020, to get a better idea of what I can hope to achieve during the year and what things may get in the way of me achieving my goals.

The beauty of the Celtic Cross spread is that it provides a huge amount of detail. It encourages you to see how all aspects of your being, your conscious mind, subconscious, thoughts and emotions, all work together. When it comes to business, it’s not just about the hustle or good luck, it’s also about balance, wellbeing and knowing when to put yourself before the work.

The Celtic Cross spread really helped me to see what was realistically possible in my business, given where I am in my life, my mindset and my outlook on the future.

Balancing work and life

Working for yourself is amazing, but it can also be exhausting and time consuming. Too many solopreneurs forget to spend some time on their wellbeing and actually living a life outside of their business. Using tarot readings, either once or twice a month, forces you to sit down and really spend some time looking inwards and listening to what your body and mind needs.

Inner work is so important when you are working solo, because you only have yourself to rely on, which means you need to make sure you are in peak condition. Work/life balance becomes extremely important and so using tools like the tarot, crystals or oracle decks allows you to carve out important you time.

Prioritising tasks

The tarot cards can also be used to prioritise your tasks for the day, no matter if it is business or personal tasks.

By asking the cards to help you find a focus or intention for the day, you’ll be able to understand what tasks are the most important for the day ahead.

For example, if I was to ask my cards what I needed to focus on that day, and they said that I had to remember to take time out, I would make sure I didn’t create a task list that takes up my whole day.

Another example would be if you asked your cards what things need to take priority today and they told you that communication is the most important thing to focus on. I’ll then put emails or social management on the top of my task list.

I use tarot cards for my own business and I’ve seen how much it can help me get my chaotic thoughts and feelings in order. By adding these tools into my routine, I’ve been able to ensure I can always re-find my balance whenever I get off track and my business has reaped the benefits.
