I'm always interested in different ways of approaching career exploration. Here's an article I just came across by a coach who uses Tarot cards as an exploration tool.
"I know the answer is within me," [clients] say, "but how do I gain access to my inner wisdom?"
Besides journaling and meditating, I often turn to tarot cards, using a simple, single-card method.
As you shuffle a deck, ask your question. Avoid yes/no questions, encouraging phrases like, "What will happen if I …" Or just, "Give me an impression of outcome X."
Pull a single card. Often the image will speak to you immediately. You'll have a sense that your intuition has been personified in this single card.
As she gives a couple examples, it makes sense, regardless of whether or not you buy into the Tarot cards themselves. Rather than giving the answer, they provide a focal point for interpretation. That interpretation then can bring the clients thoughts and feelings on the matter into focus.
She suggests additional ideas for using a Tarot deck.
Besides this method, I advocate the card-a-day method to track progress of a life transition. Keep a tarot card intuition journal. Write down the question, draw a card, and record your card, Later you can track the effectiveness of tarot cards for your own life. You may learn new meanings: "I thought this card meant departure but it really meant I was supposed to be waiting."
My Rider-Waite deck has become one of the most powerful tools in my career coaching. Use your own cards to gather intuitive wisdom and enhance intuition as you enjoy career and life change.
