If you are new to Tarot, a sceptic or at best dismiss the whole thing as a bit of woo, then you may be surprised  to know that you can use the cards as inspirational messages to help you improve and transform your life for the better.

Sounds too good to be true? Or even a scam? Well, if you're one of THOSE sceptics, then rest assured I'm not charging you any money to read my blog, so you can try out and experience my ideas and suggestions for yourself with an open mind and without any obligation.

The archetypal images of the Tarot integrate very well with our everyday lives, which is beautifully illustrated by linking them to inspirational quotes by famous people, who most likely have never been involved with the Tarot in their lives.

Here on my Tarot For Business blog I focus on helping you transform your work, career and business life with the help of the cards, so most of the quotes chosen are from well-known entrepreneurs and business professionals.

Let the Tarot show you how to wise up in your working life:

0. The Fool - new beginnings and spontaneity

"Begin today. Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy.”
- Sarah Ban Breathnach, Author of Simple Abundance

1. The Magician - potential and initiative

"Do it no matter what. If you believe in it, it is something very honourable. If somebody around you or your family does not understand it, then that's their problem. But if you do have a passion, an honest passion, just do it."
- Mario Andretti, Racing Driver

2. The High Priestess - intuition and patience

"Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data."
- John Naisbitt, Author and Public Speaker

3. The Empress - nurture and creativity

"We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better."

4. The Emperor - leadership and vision

"No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it."

6. The Lovers - love and devotion

"Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money."
- Walt Disney, Film Producer

7. The Chariot - struggle and victory

"Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile."

8. Strength - assertiveness and courage

"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."

15. The Devil - materialism and greed

  1. I like this idea of combining quotes with card essences. I'm pulling a card almost every day to see what awaits me, but I always look at it from spiritual perspective, and rarely from a business perspective.

    1. The cards can offer guidance in many areas of your life - love, relationships, work, career, family, lifestyle, spirituality... it depends what is important to you at the time of the reading. On this blog I focus on business topics only, but in general the Tarot is a flexible tool. Thank you for stopping by, Nela ;)
