Tarot is an amazing occult. Nobody can say with certainty how, where and when it came into existence but it’s remarkably accurate reflections of the situations and the outcome has made it a powerful and interesting tool not for fortune telling but for throwing light on our circumstances and also the path ahead.

Regarding origin of Tarot some believe that it was born out of symbols and rituals of religious scriptures of ancient Egyptians while some other believe it was brought to Europe by Egyptian or Persian gypsies. One school of thought is that it originated in France from a card game while the others credit it to Greeks who emphasised self-awareness. Since most of the occults developed in China and India some even believe that the origin lies in either of these countries.

In the last 600 years many card decks were developed including one in Russia and all remain popular. Irrespective of the way painted, the details and the colours used they all have similarities, so that the results of readings that are based on intuition remain same.

Indian scriptures do not have any mention of Tarot and no one has ever claimed that it is an Indian occult but since it intriguing it is slowly gaining popularity.

Life is all about making choices. From the food we eat to which direction and path to take for enlightenment, we keep making choices all the time. The option we selected in the past results in our present situation and the choice that we shall make now will determine our future. As we learn the symbolism of the cards we understand ourselves and our sub conscious mind better.

Tarot is a deck containing 78 cards – 22 from Major Arcana which depict the important events of our lives and 56 from Minor Arcana which are indicative of our experiences, the situations and the possible direction of our future.

Tarot is very different from other occults because the interpretation of the symbolism of the cards largely depend upon the clarity of what is sought and how one understands the revelation. Tarot never gives definite answers and this fact has to be understood well before the reading is done. The training of the mind towards self-awareness needs to be done to get the best out of Tarot. Intuitive skills develop over a period of time.

The tarot reader asks you to shuffle the deck while concentrating on the prime query in the mind and determines number of cards and the nature of spread for the cards to be chosen and laid. What each card to be selected stands for, is also decided before hand and finally the observations are made.
