Tarot

Tarot

A type of card deck used for divination, personal development, spiritual growth, and the cultivation of intuition and psychic ability. The term "Tarot" is a French derivative of the Italian tarocchi, meaning "triumphs" or "trumps". The Tarot deck consists of seventy-eight cards divided into two parts, the twenty-two-card Major Arcana, and the fifty-six cards of the Minor Arcana. In 1910 English occultist Arthur Edward Waite published his interpretation of the Tarot deck, with images designed by Pamela Coleman Smith. Waite drew in part on the Hermetic Kabbalah, a blend of true Kabbalah and Hermeticism favoured by occultists, including the Order of the Golden Dawn, of which Waite was a member. The Rider-Waite deck set the standard for nearly all Tarot decks to follow. The Tarot is best used as a tool for seeing one's life from new perspectives. Skillful reading requires good intuition and an ability to see the bigger picture.
