The tarot can be used in many ways.
A writer can spice up his/her creativity with a deck of tarot cards.
You can produce a story from the images of some tarot cards, or you can create a spread to jumpstart you progress.
Here is a website that has done part of the work for you. Aeclectic Tarot provides you with a few spreads to get you started.
You may also feel the need to create your own spreads.
You may even dig into a character's life with a general spread, as I did here.
I use one tarot spread to flesh out my short stories when I feel stuck. It is a three card spread. Position 1 - beginning, Position 2 - middle, Position 3 - end. This spread has helped me complete a few stories.
With the tarot guiding your muse, you'll see amazing results.
