In case you find yourself performing a career reading for a client, or perhaps are searching for a suitable occupation for your novel’s protagonist, the Occupations in the Tarot eBook will provide you with hundreds of possible job, role and vocational associations for each of the 78 cards of the Tarot.
Some are tongue-in-cheek, but most are connected to Rider-Waite card imagery, esoteric attributions and twists on traditional interpretations. (For example, the choice for “Furniture Reupholsterer” for The Devil connects with the esoteric mode of consciousness Renewing Intelligence from The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages by Paul Foster Case.)
If you’re a writer, you don’t even need to own a Tarot deck to use this handy guide for formulating characters. Simply Google “free online Tarot readings” and any of those randomly generated sites will pick one or more cards for you that you can then use to compare with this eBook guide for your character profile. Of course, the benefit for having an actual Tarot deck on hand is that you can carry it along with you for whenever inspiration strikes!
As a fiction writer, you may not be familiar with the Tarot decks available to you for brainstorming, so here’s a short list of action-rich decks to help you come up with the ideal occupations for your characters (if you happen to be a writer under 14 years of age, the decks with a * would be especially good for you):
If you happen to be a Tarot reader and a client, friend or family member (or perhaps even yourself!) is searching for a new profession, hobby or educational path, the Occupations in the Tarot guide can help point the way to possible pursuits when a particular card comes up.

Getting to know the key occupations of each of the tarot cards helps to gain yet another memorable trigger to accurately read the cards. Plus, as a writer, I use tarot cards all the time for ideas, and the "Occupations in the Tarot: A Guide for Readers and Fiction Writers" adds an extra color to that tool box of crayons. Kudos to Janet Boyer for another excellent read. All of her accomplishments, from her eBooks to her books to her decks to her blog, are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. -- Michele Andres, the MidLife Psychic
This little book is a very valuable ressource for anyone who is looking for further inspiration or for people who want to deepen their view and perspective on the tarot cards. Basically, it is a list of all (not only the major tarot trumps as usually!) tarot cards with possible professions associated to them. This sounds obvious or even easy, but it is not. And who will go into Janet Boyer's thoughts will learn a lot more about the personality and quality of the cards, in first place of the minors, as by this indirect method of thinking about a profession we come to know the person who does it, and like this the card itself. As a professional working with tarot I really can recommend this book. -- Kimon, Tarotline, Portugal
