The Tarot is a deck of 78 cards used by a psychic reader to discover issues and answers, as well as to predict the future in terms of probabilities.
The origin of tarot (or tarok) cards is unknown but it is speculated that they were introduced into Europe by Crusaders or by gypsies. We do know that they were used in Italy in the early 1300s.
The deck consists of the minor arcana (56 suit cards) and the major arcana, or trumps (22 pictorial symbol cards). The minor arcana is very much like playing cards as we know them with suits of wands (clubs), cups (hearts), swords (spades), and pentacles (diamonds). Each suit also contains the familiar court cards (kings, queens, knights, and pages). The major arcana consists of highly symbolic picture cards with their complex meanings.
The earliest tarot decks were always hand-made, and some were even designed by notable artists. One of the more famous decks was designed by Albrecht Dürer.
In psychic readings, either the full pack or the Major Arcana alone is used. The actual cards drawn for each reading are important, as is the relative position of the cards and the relationship of one card to another. A number of different configurations are used, including the three-card spread for brief readings, the traditional Celtic Cross, English layout, and the astrological spread, just to name a few.
The Tarot cards are read by an intuitive (psychic) person who is able to interpret the ancient symbols and also use a special sensitivity to tap into energies that surround the person and the issue presented.
These energies, like radio or television signals are ever-present and always accessible under the right circumstances.
A talented Sensitive can understand these various pieces of information and weave them together into a cohesive and interesting picture.
