Since the dawn of mankind, those who were concerned about
what the future held for them have sought guidance from
‘wise’ men and women.
From the ancient art of Geomancy and I Ching to the more
recent Astrology, Palmistry and Tarot, the motive has always
been to forecast events yet to take place.
Tarot cards have become one of the more popular means of
divination and are available across the world varying in
form, design and name, and the spreads in common use vary
from a simple 3 card spread, to the Tree of life, in the
original form using an entire deck of cards.
The origins of Tarot are somewhat obscure. the most common
theories are Egypt - Thoth and the connection to the ancient
mystery school teachings. The most common myth is that it
was brought to Europe by the Gypsies. I have also read that
there is a link as far back as ancient China. I believe
that all ancient civilizations developed their own systems
Tarot as we know it today is a collection of images and
symbols from a wide variety of cultures, from the ancient
Greeks and Romans to the prehistoric Norse peoples, from
the ancient religions of India and Egypt to the medieval
courts of Italy and France.
The first clear reference that we have to Tarot cards is
from a sermon that was collected with many others about
1500 in Italy found in the Steele Manuscript. The sermon
is thought to date from about 1450 to 1470 and is a diatribe
against games of chance. It gives a detailed description
of the Tarot trumps, not only numbering them but naming
them as well.
In these pages I will be showing my interpretation of each
of the 78 cards in a standard tarot deck, including ways
to remember them and key words you can use, this in itself
is a vast undertaking and will load the pages as there are
