    Tarot is a divination system that uses a specific set of 78 illustrated cards. The first 22 are called the Major Arcana. The remaining 56 Minor Arcana cards are divided into four suits: most often called the Wands, the Cups, the Swords and the Pentacles.

    Each card represents a different archetypal energy or fundamental life lesson. Tarot is viewed by some as a means to glimpse the future or explore unseen facets of a circumstance, while others consider it a therapeutic tool or a catalyst for unconventional thinking and crafting a personal sacred space. The most important part of a Tarot reading comes in the interpretation. Upon examining and reflecting upon the cards presented in your reading, new insights emerge, granting you a deeper comprehension and a sense of empowerment.

    A common myth or misconception is that you have to be psychic to read Tarot. You don't need supernatural abilities to see the future or read minds to find deep meaning in the cards. Certainly, some individuals may initially feel more at ease with Tarot, but the essential element for Tarot reading – intuition – is something everyone has.

    There exist a primary meaning to the cards. Keep in mind, however, that the traditional card meanings are only the beginning. Each Tarot reader develops their own distinctive connections with the cards, and you are fully entitled to establish your own.

    The origins of tarot cards can be traced back to 15th-century Italy, where they were initially used for a fun card game called tarocchi. These cards, known as triumph cards, featured four suits and unique trump cards with classical themes. These cards were used strictly for entertainment and had no connection to divination or fortune-telling.

    The association of tarot cards with occult practices and divination didn’t come about until the 18th century in France. A French occultist introduced the idea that tarot cards held deeper, hidden meanings and could be used to predict the future and interpret dreams. This marked a significant turning point in the history of tarot, transforming it from a simple card game to a powerful divination tool.
