What Is Tarot?

The Tarot is first known as the trionfi and later as tarocchi or the tarock. It is a pack of playing cards that originated in the Northern part of Italy from the late 14th to early 15th century. Tarot might even have originated as a secret symbolic language of the Albigensian sects. The Visconti-Sforza deck is the oldest surviving set created for the Duke of Milan’s family around 1440. Throughout time many have consulted tarot card readers for advice and insight.  

Where is it used?

A common usage of the tarot deck is for playing card games. These cards are still used throughout Europe for playing popular games without occult association. Another usage of the tarot deck is for divination. It is believed as a tool for spiritual guidance to gain insight into the current and possible future situations of the person receiving the reading. 

How is it used?

One of the most well-known readings of the Tarot is the “Yes or No” Reading. In a general way, this is one of the easiest ways to read the Tarot as it is usually done using only three cards. With the “Yes or No” reading, we can have very concrete answers, and it is necessary to know that we will not have any details.

What do the cards mean?

The Waite-Rider-Smith deck, which is the classic Tarot deck, contains 78 cards and separated into two sections – the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana.

The Major Arcana is a set of 22 cards and is considered to represent stages of life. Known as the Trump card, it signifies valuable karmic lessons and spiritual journey through life and beyond. 

The Minor Arcana is a set of 56 cards divided into four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords, and Coins. It represents the challenges we experience daily. While the Major Arcana represents significant turning points, the Minor Arcana allows Tarot readers to understand the details that surround the major events.
