What is Tarot?
While popular culture has portrayed tarot reading as a fun, fortune-telling parlor trick, there is so much more history and meaning to these cards. First records of tarot can be traced back to Italy and France in the late 1300's to early 1400's. Artists were hired by wealthy families to create and hand-paint their own unique set of cards. Often included in these illustrations were portraits of the noble family members. At this time, tarot was mostly used as a form of entertainment. It wasn't until the 17th and 18th centuries that tarot evolved into a method of divination. In 1909, the most well-known and widely used tarot deck was created: the Rider-Waite. Rich with Kabbalistic symbolism and beautiful imagery, the Rider-Waite has remained the classic, standard deck for tarot learning and reading.
Today, tarot is one of the most popular tools for divination and self-discovery. tarot is accessible for anyone seeking to learn; and with hundreds of different deck designs and themes, there is a little something for everyone. While methods of reading tarot have changed and adapted over the years, the cards and their meanings have essentially remained the same. Every tarot deck contains 78 cards that are categorized into 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana cards. The major arcana cards represent life's iconic and spiritual lessons while the minor arcana focuses more on daily lessons and experiences. Sixteen court cards, symbolizing different personality characteristics, are represented within the minor arcana. There are also four suits in the minor arcana - cups, pentacles, swords, & wands - each representing a specific physical element and different influences in our lives.
When used properly and respectfully, tarot allows an individual to gain access to their subconscious, intuition, and inner power.
Tarot a can be very helpful in self-development, decision-making, and manifestation of our personal needs, goals, and desires.
Many valuable life and spiritual lessons can be learned through reading tarot.
All it requires is an open mind and spirit, and a willingness for self-reflection.
