Tarot Card Reading - Does Anybody Believe It in the 21st Century?
Your Name is No Accident
There are many misconceptions with tarot cards, and there are still some people who consider them evil or dangerous. Most people know only what they see in movies or what they have heard about from fortunetellers. 

Certain religions may also consider tarot cards evil, but nothing could be further from the truth. Many people still use tarot cards to this day because they can help you tap into your higher self and build your intuitive skills. 

Tarot cards are a divination system that uses cards to gain insight or achieve greater control over certain issues.
 

History


People have been using tarot cards since the 15th century in parts of Europe where they played it in games, such as Italian Tarocchini and French tarot. From the late 18th century until the present, mystics and occultists have used the tarot deck as a tool for divination or as a map of spiritual and mental pathways. 

The tarot deck is over 500 years old, with roots going back over 2,000 years. Modern playing cards may be a subset of the tarot. 

The history of tarot symbolism is shrouded in mystery, and we think some of the symbols to originate in Egypt, China, or India. They also used Tarot cards in Spain, Italy and France in the 15th century. 

Tarot has a lot of historical significance, but the question remains as if anyone still believes in it and still uses it in the 21st century. While there may not be a typical response to this, I believe the tarot still holds a lot of significance even today.

How It Works


To some people, a tarot card reading may seem ridiculous, conjuring up images of a woman in a flowing robe leaning over a small table in a darkly shrouded and possibly candlelit space. However, it fascinates other people who understand its significance. 

People misunderstand tarot cards because they think they are a divination tool that can help you predict the future but that isn’t really the case. Tarot cards help guide you to make better decisions. 

They are not really meant to answer specific yes-or-no questions. Tarot cards are a powerful source of information because they help you connect with your higher self. 

Tarot cards are best suited when you focus on yourself, as opposed to trying to seek answers that involve other people. Most tarot decks are divided into what we call the major arcana and the minor arcana. 

Tarot decks typically have 78 cards that you lay out in different spreads or patterns. The major arcana, which comprises 22 cards (also referred to as trump cards), represents important significant events in one’s life. 

The minor arcana comprises 56 cards, and they represent day-to-day life. Tarot cards typically have four suits, which can vary by the style of the deck. 

The minor arcana cards comprise cups, swords, pentacles and wands. The tarot can give someone great insight into their lives, and they can help people navigate through challenging situations. 

You Get Out What You Put In


While there may not be any hard and fast rules or proof that tarot works, using the tarot can comfort someone and give solace. Some believe that the tarot can help predict future outcomes or give someone a guideline as to things to watch out for in the future, but that isn’t really its intended purpose. 

You can visit a tarot reader to gain insight into things such as relationships, career options, life choices or even health concerns, amongst many other things. Tarot cards may not be for everyone, but they can help someone develop their intuitive nature by helping one gain insight into their higher self. 

Anyone can learn to use the tarot deck, and many people find them quite enjoyable to use. Tarot cards can help you spot trends and patterns in your life, and they can help guide you so that you can make better decisions. 

The pictorial representations on the tarot deck represent events and energies that one is likely to encounter in life. The tarot can help you learn to leave things behind, discover patience, joy, and even help you reflect. 

Most spreads are designed with the past, the present and the future in mind, and the tarot can give you great insight into your life. Many people develop an intuitive relationship with the tarot, and the more you use a certain deck, the better your spreads will be and the more informative they will become. 

Whether you believe in the tarot, they are a tool that has been around for centuries, and people will most likely continue to use them for many years to come. While the tarot may not give specific answers, it can help you gain wisdom, comfort, and solace.
