What Are Tarot Cards?

Tarot cards are special cards that have a variety of symbols associated with them. Each card carries a particular meaning and message which can be used for insight and guidance. These cards are most commonly used for divination or predictions of the future. They can also be used for gaining understanding into the past, or gaining clarity on a current situation.

The Power of Symbolism

The Tarot card system is based on the power of symbols and archetypes. Each card in the symbolic Tarot deck is linked to specific symbolism and meaning. This allows the reader to relate the card to a particular situation or person. A Tarot card reading will typically involve the interpretarion of the cards and their related symbolism. By doing this, the reader can gain insights into current situations or gain predictions about the future.

Tarot Card Readings: A Holistic & Spiritual Practice

Tarot card readings are designed to be holistic and spiritual in nature. The practitioner begins a reading by preparing themselves through a meditation. This can help to ensure that the practitioner is open and neutral when reading the cards. The intention is to produce readings that are free from any subjective bias.

The Unfolding of Wisdom

When conducting a Tarot card reading the practitioner will usually lay out the cards in what is called a ‘spread’. The reader will then interpret the symbols and messages of the cards based on the positions they are placed in the spread. Each card in the spread will provide insights and understanding into the situation which is being explored.


Tarot card readings are a wonderful way to gain insight and understanding into various aspects of life. They are based on the power of symbolic and archetypal knowledge which can provide meaningful information when interpreted properly. To gain the most out of a tarot card reading it is important to be open and neutral in order to allow the true power of the cards to unfold.

What is the history of tarot card reading?

Tarot cards have been used as objects of divination since at least the 15th century. The first known documented tarot decks appeared in Italy in the 1440s, long before they became popular with occultists in the late 18th century. The earliest known tarot decks were largely based on ordinary playing cards but evolved over time to incorporate themes from esotericism, astrology, alchemy, Qabalah, and hermeticism. The modern tarot decks are composed of 78 cards divided into two parts, the major and minor arcana. Tarot cards can be used as part of a system of divination known as cartomancy, where the cards are read in a specific order and interpreted to answer questions about specific topics such as finance, health, love, work etc. The deeper the reader’s understanding of the tarot cards, the more accurate the interpretations will be.

What kind of tarot deck is used for readings?

Any tarot deck can be used for readings, but many readers prefer to work with a traditional tarot deck that contains 78 cards. The most popular tarot decks used for readings today are the Rider-Waite deck and the Thoth deck. Each deck contains a distinct set of symbols and artwork associated with the four suits of the tarot (swords, cups, disks, and wands). Popular tarot decks also contain 22 major arcana cards which are sacred, powerful cards that can help to provide insight and understanding on a variety of topics.
