What Are Tarot Cards?

Updated: Jan 16

Tarot cards have been used for self-exploration and gaining insight into one’s life for centuries. With hundreds of decks to choose from, from the Visconti-Sforza Tarot deck first created for the Visconti family in the 1600s to the many modern tarot and oracle decks available, there is a wealth of tools available to use. Tarot cards are not only used for fortune telling and divination practices, but also as a form of meditation and to gain clarity on relationships, difficult decisions and challenging situations.

The misconception that tarot cards are used only by ‘hack fortune tellers’ or those doing evil occult practices is an unfounded rumour, perpetuated in folk stories, literature, television, and film. It is important to note that tarot is not meant to predict the future, but instead offers insight, guidance, and clarity into the present. As such, it is important to research any deck before purchasing, and to be aware of the difference between a tarot deck and oracle deck. With this knowledge, tarot can be used as a powerful tool for self-reflection and understanding.

Questions I Have Been Asked To Answer About Tarot

What are Tarot readers?”

A Tarot reader is someone who can interpret the symbols, messages, and meanings of the Tarot cards and translate them into meaningful insight and guidance. Even though having psychic abilities can be helpful, it is not necessary; with enough practice and dedication, anyone can learn how to read Tarot. To become a competent reader, you need to learn about each card and its reversed meaning (if you choose to read with reversals), gain a deeper understanding of what the combinations of cards mean as a whole, and cultivate the ability to tap into the intuitive and psychic realms to interpret the messages the cards impart. Building and strengthening this connection to your inner voice requires commitment and dedication to learning the Tarot and connecting with your intuition.
