Tarot cards have been used for divination since the mid-15th century. Different parts of Europe, including France and Italy, used them. To this day, the French tarot and the Italian tarocchini have survived. Today, many tarot games are played and studied. Let’s explore the origin of tarot. It all started in ancient Greece, where the Tarot card games were created.

Before you can interpret a Tarot reading, it is important to understand the deck’s structure. These guidelines will help you get started. Tarot readings can also be used to divinate and personal development. This book is a great resource for anyone who just wants to learn more about Tarot.
Modern tarot decks include 78 cards, divided into Major and Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana contains the 22 trump cards, which represent different aspects of human life. The Minor Arcana is 56 cards divided into four suits. These cards are commonly referred to as’sacred’ cards. Despite being used for divination, Tarot isn’t a fortune-telling machine. It’s a mirror that allows you to make sense of your own life.
Professional tarot readers evaluate the pros and cons of using the cards for mental health. They say the cards are a good tool for identifying the meaning of your life circumstances and can spark a conversation with a counselor. Some people may find the spiritual aspects of tarot to be contrary to their religious beliefs. For those who don’t practice religion, tarot may be a good idea as well. Therapy and professional guidance should be used in conjunction with the use of the cards, as it is easy for you to see what you believe.
The first recorded use of Tarot cards as a game was in parlors. People began to use the cards in Italy for divination in the late sixteenth century and early seventeenth centuries. They likely brought the original deck of cards with them on duty. The culture of Tarot then made its way to the native populations of the Mediterranean. However, people started to assign specific meanings and suggest layouts for divination in the eighteenth-century.
There are many benefits to using the cards as a guide. Tarot readings are more accurate when they are collaborative. The reader uses the cards to guide the querent and help them understand their own motives, patterns, relationships, and needs. They can only provide confirmation of what the querent already knows, but can also reveal little new information. It can be a powerful experience. There are many different types of readings, and each one is unique.
People believe that Tarot readings can tell them the future. Tarot isn’t a psychic reading but it can help you tap into your intuition. By interpreting the imagery of the cards, you can create the kind of life you want for yourself. Tarot readings help you create the ideal future and manifest your dreams. Tarot readings are powerful tools that help you access your intuition and make decisions that will benefit your life and bring you joy and fulfillment.

Each suit has a unique meaning and focuses on different aspects. The four personality cards reflect the different aspects of an individual’s outlook and attitude.
