History of Tarot

The history of tarot cards is complex and debated among scholars. The earliest known tarot cards date back to the 15th century in Italy, where they were used for playing a game called tarocchi. Over time, these cards began to be used for divination and spiritual purposes.

The design of the tarot deck has evolved over time, but the traditional deck consists of 78 cards divided into the Major Arcana (22 cards) and Minor Arcana (56 cards). The Major Arcana cards, also known as the “trump cards,” depict symbolic and archetypal images such as The Fool, The High Priestess, and The World. The Minor Arcana cards, similar to a deck of standard playing cards, are divided into four suits: cups, swords, wands, and pentacles.

The use of tarot cards for divination and spiritual guidance became popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, particularly in occult and esoteric circles. Today, tarot reading is a popular form of divination and self-reflection, and there are many different interpretations and approaches to reading the cards.
