For example, the Eight of Swords would indicate you are engaging in some self-limiting or self-sabotaging behavior.

What are my strengths?
This is a good way to identify the career strengths you can utilize to your advantage. Be sure to interpret this reading through the lens of strength. What do I mean by that? Let’s say you got a card with a negative connotation. For example, the Three of Swords. The Three of Swords is associated with disappointment, literally having your heart broken. in this particular position, it would mean you are able to overcome disappointments and persevere. What about The Lovers? Well, that would mean, you put your heart in your work, you really care about your job.
What are my weaknesses?
You’ll recognize this question from just about every job interview. These are the areas you should concentrate on. By accounting for and minimizing our weaknesses, we become stronger employees and candidates for positions.
Beware…in this area, you might also find a positive card. For example, what about the Three of Pentacles? The three of Pentacles would suggest you work well in teams and don’t have trouble with communication. However, it might mean you have trouble working on your own and you need to be part of a group.
What are the blockages or barriers to my success?
What is standing in between you and success? This might be another person, like another candidate for the job. It could even be your own misgivings and fears. Or even a bad habit that is getting in the way of your success. Once you know what this is, you can address the situation and move past it.
What don’t I see coming?
This card is helpful to determine whether or not you have a blindspot about this situation. It could even give you insight about a hiring manager or your current supervisor. It’s good to ask questions about the unknown, because we can make assumptions about a situation that blind us to the actual truth.
What is the best advice for me?
This is one of my favorite questions to ask the tarot. I usually ask it at the end of every single tarot spread I do for myself. It’s helpful to have some guidance on what to do in the situation.
