Want to learn how Tarrot works?
Many among us would have taken up professional courses to enhance ability to read Tarrot cards, but sometimes we get so engrossed in just the working of Tarot that we neglect to know more about its history and other things that would help us in reading them better.

TAROT ORIGINATES from the word Tarrochi, which means solving mysteries. The time when Tarot came into existence is not exactly known but it can be dated back to the 13th and 15th centuries.

Earlier Tarot Cards were used to play card games like the playing cards; these days they are used to predict or fortune-telling, called Cartomancy. Traces of the oldest tarot deck can be found in Italy. A traditional tarot deck has 78 cards in it. These days, there are variations with the number of cards differing according to the writer/ illustrator of the deck.

Reading Tarot is the art of divination with the help of pictures and drawings on the cards. These symbols, if studied with intricacy will reveal everything about the enquirer.

Contrary to the fact that tarot is used only for counselling, it has many other aspects too, for example; astrology, colors, planetary effects and influences upon the person, directions, elements, etc. Although every tarot set is accompanied with instruction books, it is important to be intuitive and evaluate the cards as a story rather than just speak of the book meanings.

How Tarot works

Tarot works on synchronicity; when we pull cards keeping the question in mind or speaking aloud, we will definitely get an answer. The tarot never goes wrong and it is a known fact that the cards will tell us what we need to know and what is most important to us at that point of time. For instance, we might ask about our career but the card that we pull out would be related to our relation, this means that the universe is guiding us that we need to concentrate on that aspect of our life, which is somehow important to our work too.

Tarot gives us minute details on a day to day basis and also gives us information about long term goals. Tarot acts as a map to our future and when we know that the road we are taking might not bring us good results, we can change our path and choose something which will bring us success. This is how Tarot helps us to plan our future and saves our time from trial and error, a much needed tool in today’s time!

Most people like to know how accurate Tarot is? It's like asking how correct mathematics is. If a person does add, subtract or calculate right, the subject is definitely not at fault. Every reader has a his own style and it will be unfair to generalize the tarot.
