Did my own tarot reading for my new business to see if it’s worth going for it “right now” or “wait”.
I first wrote down my plan, and came up with some ideas, plotted them out on paper, who I want to help, how I can help them, what would help the most amount of people, value, etc.
I also did single-card readings to find price-entry-points for the various packages (which ended up being Free, $22 and $33 as the 3 prices that got the most “yes’s” and “checkmarks”, so that’s a good starting point while I’m building it up.
Once I had my packages with their prices and what was offered next to them, I named the main theme of the product, and then did a career/business 6-card spread of which I used all of my decks.
I basically have 2 full tarot decks, and then a lot of oracle decks.
I mixed/shuffled all the oracle decks and put them into a separate storage box, and then I did the main spread with the 2 tarot decks, then put my hand into the box and picked out a random card to place on top of each (with the intention that this random card would provide more information/definition or clarification to each question).
The questions were:
- What you gain/career
- What you learn/mistakes
- What calls most to you?
- What present situation holds
- Where the door is open
- What you can expect by taking a risk (outcome)
And here is what showed up:
When I shuffle the tarot cards, I basically wait for a card to “pop right out of my hands”.. (unlike when I put my hand in the shuffle-box for the final card)
