Tarot a Brief History
The Tarot consists of 78 coloured cards. In the mid 15th century the Tarot was used as playing cards in certain parts of Europe. It wasn’t until the late 18th century that the Tarot was used by Psychics.
The Tarot has four suits; Cups, Wands, Swords and Pentacles. Each suit has 14 cards, 4 of these are court cards and the others consist of pip cards numbering from Ace to Ten. In addition the Tarot has a further 22 cards called the Major Arcana. The cards are traced back to ancient times of Egypt and the Kabbalah.
Each card has a pictogram and title that represents a particular concept.
The Tarot is rather like a picture book of 78 cards. The Story starts as the Fool begins on his Journey and ends at The World. The Tarot depicts a spiritual journey. The cards all have a special relationship to each other and can reveal past, present and future events.
There are many different cards on the market today. Some of the more popular known decks are the Rider- Waite Tarot, The Thoth Deck, Golden Dawn Tarot and the Aquarian Tarot. Some other decks include Deviant Moon, The Druid Tarot and many more.
