Tarot is a divination system that uses a set of cards to gain insight and achieve greater control over issues
involving relationships, opportunities, and life changes. Tarot is a set of seventy-eight cards, each featuring
different symbolic pictures. A standard Tarot deck is made up of 22 cards called the major arcana or trumps,
and four suits of 14 cards - similar to playing cards - called the minor arcana or pip cards.
The Tarot deck is over 500 years old. With archetypal roots that go back almost 2000 years, Tarot has
become a repository of ancient wisdom. Interestingly, our modern playing cards are a subset of the Tarot.
Tarot cards can be used for practical problem-solving, creative visualizations, meditation, self improvement,
as a tool of understanding, for divination and fortune-telling, The history of Tarot symbolism
is shrouded in mystery. Some of the Tarot symbols are thought to have originated in China, India or Egypt.
Tarot cards date back to 15th century Spain, Italy and France.
HOW DOES TAROT WORK ?
A tarot deck consists of 78 cards that you lay out in any one of a number of spreads. Each card is symbolic
of an energy or spiritual truth, its relevance depending upon its position in the spread. There are so many
possible outcomes that tarot readers spend decades mastering the meanings of all the cards in all the different
combinations. Books are one resource, but can only help so much.
Using the power of Synchronicity, Tarot taps both the subconscious and the superconscious Mind, the
center of our psychic abilities. Anyone can become a good tarot reader. But a gifted reader of Tarot is far
more than someone exercising innate psychic abilities. An appreciation of the power of the archetypes
contained in the images on the cards demands a classical understanding. By bringing you this element, Tarot
lets you give yourself good readings right off the bat and will lead to accurate intuitive abilities over time.
