What is the Tarot?

Tarot cards were created in the 15th Century during the Renaissance. Initially used as a card game, early documentation shows that the cards were being used for divination in Bologna, Italy circa 1750. Most modern tarot decks derive from the Marseille Tarot Deck (created in the 1750s) and the Rider Waite Smith Tarot Deck (created in 1909).

Made up of 78 cards, the tarot deck is full of vivid imagery of archetypes that represent different aspects of the human psyche. Having a tarot reading done by a psychic allows the information to be more personalised – going well beyond just having a description of the cards. The cards however, being as ancient and enigmatic as they are, always have their own story to tell…
