Tarot is a deck of cards that has been used for centuries for divination, spiritual guidance, and personal growth. While the exact origins of tarot are unknown, it is believed to have originated in Europe during the 14th or 15th century.
The tarot deck is made up of 78 cards, divided into two main parts: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards that represent major life events or themes, such as The Fool, The Lovers, and The World. The Minor Arcana consists of 56 cards that are divided into four suits: Cups, Wands, Swords, and Pentacles. These cards represent more everyday experiences and concerns.
Over the centuries, tarot has undergone many transformations and interpretations, and has been used by a diverse range of people, from spiritual seekers to artists to psychotherapists.
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in tarot, with more and more people seeking out tarot readings or learning how to read tarot cards for themselves. This trend can be attributed to a number of factors, including the increasing popularity of spirituality and alternative forms of self-care, as well as the growing interest in self-exploration and personal growth.
