Tarot readings as an art and a science has been around for a
long time. Originating in 15th Century Northern Italy, tarot
cards were used for games initially, and packs at the time
were made up of a normal deck of cards with the addition of 21
trump cards, 4 queens of each suite and a fool.

The original date of the use of this deck of cards or "tarocchi"
deck is uncertain; however "The Oracles of Francesco Marcolino
da Forli" in 1540 illustrates a simple form of divining from the
coin suite of a standard pack of cards.

Later works by authors from Europe show the basic divinatory
meanings of the cards, as well as the system for laying out the
cards. In 1781 Antoine Court de Gebelin attempted to set out the
history of tarot divination, as well as the detailed use of
tarot to foretell the future, but unfortunately much of this is
speculative. Whilst he alleged to be able to follow the tarot
back to ancient Egypt or various other sources there is no proof
of the tarot being used in practice in such places.

Tarot reflects the symbolism of the Middle Ages, and people at
the time would recognise the images portrayed on the cards, many
of which may look somewhat mysterious today.

However <a
 cards</a> were not generally accepted as a method of divination
until the 18th and 19th Centuries, when their use by secret
societies, mystics and occultists brought them into much more
regular use.

Interest in tarot developed much more widely in the 19th
Century, starting in Napoleon's time and particularly as a
result of the Hermetic Revival where other occultists took a
greater notice.

It is generally credited to Eliphas Levi that the tarot system
we know today was brought into the English language and his
method of divination is still very much in use by many people.

1910 saw a major increase in tarot with the publication if the
Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot, which included symbolic images relating
to the meanings to be divined from the numerical cards. 20th
Century marketing ensured that these particular tarot cards have
remained probably the most generally used even to this day,
although a great variety is still to be had.

Tarot reading has also improved with the times and divinations
by experts have now become increasingly available from
specialists on the internet. This ability to go straight to the
experts has revolutionised the psychic possibilities available
to most people, and more and more people are going directly to
the web for a tarot reading rather than relying on less
expertise locally, indeed many people use this service daily.

If you are looking for an expert tarot reading you will get just
that on the web.
