I use Tarot to plan my business and I will show you what it looks like and how it works. You can do the same for your own business or Tarot reading practice. Read this Tarot Question ~ Tarot Reading Case Study.
The 2016 is approaching and with that, resolutions. Do you have any plans for the next year? Are you working on some project you want to finish in 2016? What is the goal you would like to achieve in the near future?
I have 2 goals that are on my mind:
- One is to create an online course to teach how to read Tarot.
- The other one is to use Pinterest to my advantage.
One year is quite a stretch, but with my going to school full-time, working as a Tarot reader, taking care of my house and cats, the one-year time frame sounds good. I either do it right or not at all…
I’ve been thinking about the PLAN to reach my goals. Well, for my Pinterest goal, I’ve created a Pin-ning strategy for Pinterest that will get my business more exposure. This social media platform hosts my ideal clients and it’s for free, plus there is so much interesting information that I would be silly not to use it. I actually enjoy browsing it! I also created two more Boards on my profile that contain interesting information and services my potential customers are looking for. I have watched a lot of coaching and educational videos about how Pinterest works and now, I know how to pin my posts so they’ll be delivered exactly at the right time. I can proudly say that I am already seeing positive results. The traffic from Pinterest to my website has gone up from 16 to 18 percent in just a week.
My plan for my Tarot Course goal is to get a software that will allow me to create an online course and attach it to my website. Then, I will have to put all my ideas together and arrange them into some logical pattern. Every student needs homework and exercises and these have to be created. The course cannot be dry and boring. I want my students to have fun with it! Teaching is not a foreign concept to me. I used to teach English, math, and statistics in the past. I love teaching and I know I can create a quality course on Tarot. I just have to put all my thoughts on paper and actually, start creating the course.
As you can see, these plans are not complicated. They are pretty straightforward and still, I find myself hesitating and procrastinating. I have many good business ideas in my mind, but I can’t seem to make myself make them happen in a timely fashion.
I have done a small Tarot reading about this topic. I asked my cards, “What is the character of this situation (what energies are at play)?” This reading is just for illustration and food for thought about possible Tarot Card interpretations.

I pulled: Wheel of Fortune ~ 2 of Wands reversed ~ 9 of Swords
The Wheel of Fortune is showing the fact that I am on the right path. The Wheel is telling me this time of my life is my destiny. It carries a message that I have found myself at a turning point and it’s up to me to decide which way to go. My two goals for 2016 are meaningful and I feel they will propel my Tarot reading business forward. The Wheel of Fortune indicates that a new cycle of my affairs is about to start and I feel like I will make some permanent changes in business. Changes for the better. The Wheel of Fortune brings me hope of positive outcome even though, my current position is somewhat unstable.
The 2 of Wands reversed confirm my feelings of instability. I have too many ideas in my head and I feel like I don’t have time to pin point the one or two that I want to focus. I did grab the opportunity of the Ace of Wands by starting my business, but now, I am stalling out and my vision is slow in coming in the Two of Wands reversed. I am not being bold and I need to seize the initiative. I am waiting for something to fall into my lap. I feel like I am waiting for a sudden inspiration or free time when I can focus wholly on this project (I have not been able to spend a lot of time developing my plans yet).
The 9 of Swords is actually a good card in this context. It says that there is a tremendous mental activity going on because it shows the last stages of effort before a decision is made or the final result is reached. I keep thinking about these goals all the time and I am almost done worrying about them. I have already taken one small step toward my goal in regard to Pinterest and that is one less thing to worry about. I still do worry about my Tarot course and the content of it. I do want it to be special and different from others. I want it to be original and fun for students. The Nine of Swords brings us a message that good fortune will be had later on. Time is on my side and I will get what I want.
The conclusion of this small reading is: I am on the right track, I just need to get over the hump of indecisiveness, and I need to stop thinking about it and just do it. The message here is that we shouldn’t allow ourselves to get crushed and give up on our goals. We have to learn to work in a new way, develop more mental strength, and use the power of our will.
I am glad I have decided to write this all down here because at least, it will make me accountable! Making promises publically is a great motivator.
Do you talk about your goals online? Does it help you make your goals reality? Do you feel more motivated by doing so?… Or you work the best without sharing your plans with anybody?
I would really like to hear about you and your plans. And how you go about staying motivated so your goals don’t remain to be just your wishes.
