Tarot cards are a form of divination used to answer questions about the future, reveal insights into the present, and provide guidance for people with life’s problems. The cards are typically shuffled and cut, then laid out in sequential order. This sequence is called a “spread”. After laying out all of the cards that were chosen, the reader interprets what they mean together to provide an answer to the question asked. More often than not, this means interpreting how each card relates to one another.
This post will go over what Tarot reading is all about and how it works – including an overview of its history, significance, symbols found on Tarot cards, and skills required for becoming a professional tarot reader.
What is Tarot card ?
Tarot is a deck of cards that was originally designed for playing games, but these days it is more commonly used as a way to tell the future. Tarot cards use images and symbols to tell the story of a person’s destiny and their journey through life. The cards are often shuffled and cut, then laid out in sequential order. This sequence is called a “spread”. After laying out all of the cards that were chosen, the reader interprets what they mean together to provide an answer to the question asked. More often than not, this means interpreting how each card relates to one another.
There are 78 cards in a tarot deck, and these 78 cards are divided into two categories: the Minor Arcana and the Major Arcana. The Minor Arcana includes four suits: Wands or Clubs (usually corresponds with the element of Fire), Swords (usually corresponds with the element of Air), Cups t assigned to any specific Element), The Magician, The High Priestess(usually corresponds with the element of Water), and Disks or Pentacles (usually corresponds with the element of Earth). The Major Arcana includes 22 cards that can be broken up into four suits.
How does Tarot card work?
When interpreting the card, the reader will consider the cards to be a reflection of their life. They will consider where they are in the present, and how they want to be in the future. The reader will also consider what has happened in their past and use that as a benchmark for what they may expect in the future. It will also consider what direction they want their life to take, and how Tarot can help them achieve that path.
There are 78 cards in a Tarot deck, and these cards have a variety of different meanings. Each card also has a different meaning depending on where it is placed in the layout. The cards are laid out in a “spread” to illustrate how these cards interact with each other to provide a message from the tarot reader.
In general, tarot readers use the cards as a form of divination. It is believed that tarot can help people gain insights into their future or connect with their intuition. Some people use tarot as a form of guidance to help them make decisions, while others use it as a way to reflect on what is going on in their lives. Each person might have a different reason for reading tarot, but the goal is always to gain insight into their upcoming future.
History of Tarot Card
Tarot cards are thought to have originated in ancient Egypt. They are believed to have been used by the Atlanteans, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. However, this is still a debated topic. Tarot cards are an ancient form of divination that was developed in France during the 18th century. The occultist occultists thought of the cards as a way to communicate with the spirits, angels, and gods of various pantheons.
The first recorded mention of Tarot cards can be found in a manuscript commissioned by the Duke of Milan for his son’s wedding in 1463. The manuscript had interpretations for each card that correspond to the imagery on the card. The Tarot cards have gone through many changes since their conception. The first change occurred in the late 18th century. The order of the cards was changed so that it was easier to use. The second change occurred in the 19th century when new decks were created with specific suits of Minor Arcana – Swords, Pentacles, Wands, and Cups. The most recent change occurred in 1970 when new decks were created with Major Arcana numbered from 0 (The Fool) to XXI (The World).
What are the symbols on the Tarot cards?
Tarot cards are full of symbolism. The symbols found on the cards typically represent major arcana, minor arcana, and court cards. The major arcana are the most powerful cards in the deck. They are often numbered with Roman numerals and are usually considered to be more significant than the other two types. Major arcana cards are usually associated with one of the four suits in a traditional deck of playing cards. They typically symbolize important concepts related to the corresponding suit. For example, the card “The Wheel of Fortune” is associated with the suit of spades.
The minor arcana are also numbered with Roman numerals, but they typically represent more specific concepts. There are typically four suits in the minor arcana deck. Lastly, the court cards are often numbered with Arabic numerals, depending on what deck you are using. Court cards represent people or characters. For example, “The Page of Cups” is numbered 11 in this deck of tarot cards. Court cards are typically associated with one of four suits in a traditional deck of playing cards.
The skills required for reading tarot cards
To be good at reading tarot, you must have a high level of intuition, be able to read people, and have a deep understanding of the cards. Tarot reading is a form of divination. Divination is the practice of using various tools to figure out what is going on or what will happen in the future. This is based on intuition, knowledge, and understanding. Typically, divination is done by interpreting omens or by using tools like tarot cards.
Knowledge is needed for tarot cards because they are symbols that represent something you are thinking about or want to know about. To interpret these symbols, you must have knowledge about what they represent so you can understand the message they are sending. Understanding is also important because you need to have an understanding of what the cards are communicating so you can create a response. Those who don’t have that understanding will not be effective at interpreting the messages that are being communicated.
Intuition is needed for being able to read people because it will help the tarot reader to know what questions to ask and what cards to use. It will also help them to know when people are being deceptive and what cards should be interpreted as positive and negative.
To conclude, Tarot is a card game that many people enjoy for its spiritual and fortune-telling properties. It’s a great way to get in touch with your inner self and find out what plans the future may hold for you.
