Whether you're a sceptic or a believer, exploring the world of tarot can be a fascinating journey. To learn more about this enduring practice, let’s delve into the intriguing realm of tarot card readings, uncovering their history, the process and how they can provide valuable insights into life's mysteries.
Tarot reading is a form of Cartomancy, the practice of fortune-telling or divination using a deck of cards. The first written references to tarot packs occurred around the mid-15th century in northern Italy. It was only in the 1780s, though, after the practice of fortune-telling with cards had been well established in European societies, that tarot packs were used especially for cartomancy.
Today, a deck of tarot cards usually consists of 78 cards divided into two main categories: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. Each card in the deck holds symbolic imagery and meaning, making them a powerful tool for self-reflection and gaining insight into life's complexities.
The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards, each representing significant life events, archetypes and spiritual lessons. These cards touch on major life changes, challenges and transformations.
The Minor Arcana, on the other hand, comprises 56 cards divided into four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. These cards explore everyday situations, emotions and challenges, helping us understand the finer details of our lives.
The querent (the person seeking information) usually shuffles the cards while concentrating on their query or goal at the start of a tarot reading session. Following that, the tarot reader chooses a predetermined number of cards from the deck, which are then fanned out and revealed one by one.
The tarot reader deciphers the meaning and arrangement of the cards to offer insights into the querent's query or circumstance. Tarot readings can cover various topics, including love, work, health and personal development.
It's important to understand that tarot readings are not traditional fortune-telling. Instead, they act as a mirror to reflect the querent's unconscious influences, ideas and feelings. Tarot readers provide advice and viewpoints, but the decision and ability to change ultimately rest with the inquirer.
From self-discovery to personal growth, tarot reading can be a powerful tool and catalyst for change. Here are some of the benefits you can gain in a session with a tarot reader:
