Tarot and Your Career Personality Type

Tarot and Your Career Personality Type
The Tarot Can Help You Discover Your Career Personality Type

For many Tarot enthusiasts, consulting the Tarot for guidance through life is a common practice. For those who have issues with their current career path, the Tarot can provide a lot of insight. These can include such issues as taking appropriate business actions, how to resolve a work related conflict, or how to advance within an existing or new career. Moreover, the Tarot can even help you discover what type of career personality you are predisposed to. In this regard, you can learn about your greatest assets and potential vulnerabilities.

For the purpose of discovering your career personality type, it is always best to work with the Major Arcana. Each card within the Major Arcana signifies an individual's tendency towards certain work related personality traits as well as their potential strengths and weaknesses on the job. You can conduct a tarot reading to determine your career personality using a simple three card tarot spread. However, in this case, you are not seeking answers to a particular question. Rather you are drawing the cards to reflect what type of career type you possess.

To determine your career personality type, you must draw three cards from the Major Arcana. These three cards represent your three primary personality traits including your areas of strength as well as your possible weaknesses. To begin, shuffle the Major Arcana and pull three cards and lay them on the table before you. It does not matter if they are forward or reversed. The goal of this exercise is to read the cards in both the forward and reversed positions. The forward positions reference your strengths and the reversed positions reference your weakness.

Keep in mind that it’s really up to you to determine what each card may be reflecting to you. However, below I have included a quick reference guide for the Major Arcana Career Personality Types.
