The origins of the Tarot are surrounded with myth and lore.
The Tarot has been thought to come from places like India, Egypt, China and Morocco. Others say the Tarot was brought to us from the Sufis or the Jewish Cabbalists. Still others contend that the origin of the Tarot was from Moses. In the library of Alexandria, in Egypt, there were scrolls that were based on the Book of Thoth, an ancient book that came from Egypt’s mystery schools.
What are these cards that are shrouded in mysterious beginnings used for?
The Tarot is basically a set of symbols, which are printed on a pack of 78 cards. Regular playing cards have hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds as suits. Tarot cards have different suits, with meanings. The Wands (also known as staves or rods) point to creativity and energy. There are the Cups (or vessels), relating to emotions and friends; Swords cover the area of challenge and thought; the Pentacles (coins or disks) relate to money and security. The cards are placed in a particular pattern. A Tarot reading uses the cards as an oracle that can give insights from the past, present or future.
Many consider the Tarot cards as more of a counselling guide than a divining tool.
Tarot readings can provide flashes of inspiration where otherwise the problems the person may be facing may seem insurmountable. The Tarot makes you think, make you take steps that you might not have considered.
The philosophy behind the Tarot is that the future is subject to change.
The Tarot will show you what will happen if you don’t change anything. When you are given enough notice, you can change outcomes. Ultimately, the messages and guidance offered will be of meaning and of truth, and essentially, a message that needs to be given to the recipient.
