About Tarot

Tarot is one of the popular methods of divination used today. The exact origin of when and where it first started is still unproven, but it is thought to have been used as a method of foretelling the future in far spread countries all over the world, like ancient Egypt, China and India. There is proof however that the Tarot was used in Renaissance Europe in the 14th or 15th Century. The Tarot deck, as it has always been, consists of 78 cards. There are 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. The word: Arcana means secret or mysteries. I have chosen to work with The Rider Waite and Celtic Tarot deck, for the purpose of teaching you about Tarot. There are many different decks of Tarot out there, some have very easy to read pictures on them which are bright and colourful and some are very dark and not so pleasant to read. When picking a Tarot deck for yourself, choose the ones that you feel most comfortable with.
