What is tarot?
The tarot cards are playing cards mainly used for divination purposes. Invented in 1430s Italy, the tarot spread throughout France, Austria, and the rest of Europe. Practitioners use the cards to gain insight into the past, present, and future. They utilise their intuition to apply the meaning of the cards to particular situations. Although tarot is a structured form of cartomancy, many readers branch out and develop their own unique methods of reading.
