The earliest recorded use of Tarot cards was as a parlor game. People began to use the cards in Italy for divination in the late sixteenth century and early seventeenth centuries. They probably brought the original deck of cards on duty. The culture of Tarot spread to the Mediterranean natives. In the eighteenth century, however, people began assigning specific meanings to the cards and suggesting layouts for divination.
The benefits of using the cards as a guide are numerous. 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 types of readings and each one is different.

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.
