Tarot cards are an amazing tool for seeking guidance. I have been doing tarot readings for almost four years now and I have always been amazed at how effective tarot cards are in guiding you regarding your current situation or problem. Tarot cards can help you choose the best action to take in your situation and give you a glimpse of what is to come.

Though Tarot is the most popular tool for spiritual introspection in the West, but it is still considered secondary to astrology in India. Being a tarot reader and an astrologer, I can say from experience that the insights gained through Tarot are as accurate as that through astrology. It's really amazing to see how Tarot can perfectly guide you through a given situation.

Questions related to job and career are one of the most frequently asked questions during tarot readings. In case you are seeking guidance related to career, then here are the top ten tarot cards to look out for in your tarot reading:


1. Ace of Pentacles

The Ace indicates a new opportunity and pentacles represent money, so expect to see a new job with pay hike or promotion or pay rise in your current job. New opportunities with financial rewards whether you are in job or business are indicated.

2. Two of Wands

With a desire to expand your horizons, you may plan your career with foresight and there is a possibility of further education to improve your skills or overseas travel to pursue your career goals.

The Ten of Pentacles it is the ultimate success card for ambitious, hard-working and driven people. It signifies great accomplishments and success. It also suggests that you have established a solid foundation for your future career path.

4. Chariot

A warrior on a chariot depicts marching ahead with confidence. When the chariot comes in your reading then it's the time to move forward with determination. It's time to gain more control and responsibility at work and it may happen that you can be stepping into a managerial position.

When you drop the idea of predicting the future, you start to experience the cards as a mirror of the psyche. That`s when playing with the tarot becomes a path to wisdom.
