Tarot cards certainly have meaning, and even those who are unaffiliated with the practice of tarot readings are aware that the various images have varied significance. However, there is context to consider when looking at tarot cards.
There are different ways to work with Tarot Cards including meditation on the art for insight or to invite that energy into your life.
Some people also use the cards in their ritual work as well.
And yet, tarot cards work with each other. For example, a tarot card that doesn’t necessarily represent success can be there as a context of how far you have come. As the spread helps to shape and define the card for this particular event. Therefore, it can be tricky to rely too heavily on any individual card itself.
That being said, each card does have a value affiliated with it. And some are more highly regarded than others. Here is a quick look at the 5 best tarot cards for achievement and success.
The Sun is one of the most agreed-upon tarot cards for success. The radiant glow of the sun represents positive energy and demonstrates a period of success and fulfillment. Whether you draw this card on its own or find it to be part of a spread being laid before you, this is a positive tarot card to have on your side.
The Ten of Pentacles
Success and achievement mean different things to different people, which is why selecting the best tarot cards for success and achievement is a difficult task. However, if you are one who feels that a well-paying job, status from your achievements, and overall financial gain is a marker for success, then the Ten of Pentacles is the card for you. This card is letting you know that your hard work will pay off.
The Six of Wands
Sometimes success and achievement are not only what you have earned for yourself, but how the world perceives you. The Six of Wands demonstrates fame, and if you find yourself with this card, then you can anticipate that recognition will accompany your accomplishments. Whether your status in society grows, or you become a positive role model to certain individuals, the Six of Wands tells you that you are a positive influence to those around you.
For most of us, success and achievement are on the horizon as opposed to the rearview mirror, and nothing represents this view better than the Chariot. This card puts forth that triumph and victory are ahead, and that if you stay the course of hard work and overcoming distractions that might get in your way, you will greet this victory. A positive card, the Chariot represents that you already have the strength that is necessary to achieve, you just need to see it through to the end.
The Ten of Cups
There are those of us who want nothing more than a relationship with a partner, or perhaps even a family. This idea of success far surpasses that of fame and glory for many tarot readers, and if this fits your thinking, then the Ten of Cups is the card for you. Don’t fret about your relationships or the loved ones in your life, because this card means that if you stay true to yourself and your ideals, true love and familial achievement is waiting for you.
