The Basic Tarot Overview

Individuals in search of answers sometimes look up on spiritual or supernatural ways, and a deck of clairvoyance cards with moral continuum emblems and face motifs so-called Tarot cards has long been used to uncover the forces we cannot see. Although playing cards in common are worked to denote numeric values and minor systems of significance, like face cards, Tarot cards carry different indicator signifiers. The Tarot deck of cards functions as an interface which reveals individual paths and existential factors.

Could the Tarot derive from Egyptian or Far Eastern cultures? Many Tarot students come to believe that norms of fantasy common to all cultures and myths are found inside the Tarot systems of meaning and assign the same values, explaining the multicultural adoption of Tarot by monotheistic and polytheistic civilization members today regardless of beliefs. The soul and body connection, the mind and spirit dynamics and incorporation of many common belief tropes support the resonance of Tarot motifs in explanation, readings, and Tarot interpretation.

The Tarot deck and its use allow a speculative “trying on” of several factors and systems to reflect potential events in real life. Immortality, spirituality, psychology and mysticism all blend into study and belief in the occult. But many defenders of the Tarot insist occult beliefs are not necessary for apt use of the Tarot instrument. Symbols like the sun and stars used to symbolize success and enlightenment are most lyrically obvious.

The Tarot operates in a manner unusual to individual national cultures but recognized by almost all of them. The revelation of future events or spiritual undertakings from the turn of a card is a combination of the tradition of European playing card games and the ease of use for consultation and discussion. The face cards of the Tarot deck are declaimed and directed toward a situation or state of being in the individual‘s life and the qualities and characteristics of the cards are suggested to match and conform.

The Joker, or Fool, can mean adventure is near. The Queen or Empress, is a bountiful bringer of plenty and replenishment. The Hermit is a knowledge giver that is the self from the future. Success and stasis, emotional states, and actions can be governed by the delicate and intuitive interpretations of a skilled Tarot reader educated in the meanings yet able to connect with these indications with regard to the individual’s potential.

The quest for the meaning of life, the connection between thought and action, the span of Mystical thought derives its basis from ancient beliefs grounded in basic spiritual truths from Gnosticism, Sufism, and other braided root beliefs from agricultural deity theisms.

Tarot History

The repertoire of beliefs from Christian, Hebraic, and Islamic tropes is hardly known to many since the early beginnings of many of these religious beliefs are founded in primitive times and practices obscure to modern man. If God and knowledge are to be found within the self, critics argue, how can a deck of playing cards assist individuals in telling their fortune or predicting their future?

The Tarot is a deck of cards that originated over 500 years ago in various versions from the Levant to Persia, India to China, and across the Mediterranean, Italy and Europe. For some people the Tarot deck is merely a parlor game, yet for others holds a philosophical enlightenment.

The fashionable games of cards then popular when Tarot beliefs impacted Europe were transformed when the medium of the Book of Tarot was incorporated into a deck of cards. Different versions of the same symbols and allegorical figures were adopted by artists and fortune tellers eager to profit from the fad.

Although the Tarot was first used in a game called Triumphs, it was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, and popularized by occult societies such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

The early Tarot symbolism was deeply rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe, but over the centuries it has grown to incorporate everything from. Today, the Tarot is far and away the most accessible tool for predictive emotional, psychological, and spiritual introspection in the West.
