What is Tarot?
For ages the art of divination has been a part of many cultures and religions. Of the many forms of divination, one seems to be gaining more and more popularity throughout the world. Tarot seems to be the preferred tool of divination for many though some may prefer other methods. I discovered tarot approximately 2 years ago and was amazed at how accurate the cards can be. They really hit home with me and I have been fascinated with it ever since then. But what are these cards anyways and how can they tell the future?
Well, let me explain a little about the cards. They are divided up in this fashion. First is your Major Arcana. These cards represent different phases in your life. Starting with the Fool and ending with The World, these cards show how far we have advanced on many different levels and can also represent obstacles and victories as well. All in all they show that life is about growth and change. To move on to the next level we must first master the one we are on. Though we start out as a Fool with blind faith, we can ultimately have everything we ever dreamed of.
Next is the Minor Arcana. They are numbered Ace through King and are divided up by wands, chalices, pentacles and swords. Each of these represent an aspect of human nature. Ace through 10 represent how good or bad things are in the card. The Paige is the messenger of the suits and the Knight through King are people that could be affecting the situatiuon. Each suit represents an element. That is where our nature comes in to the cards. Each element stands for its own aspect of humanity. Wands represent air and thoughts. Pentacles represent Earth and money or stability. Chalices represent water and emotions. Swords represent Fire and passion. Though these are of the Minor Arcana, they can give you great insight into whatever the question may be.
I could go on and on telling you about each and every card in the deck! but maybe you want to learn how to read them for yourself?
