How to Read Tarot Cards?

Tarot Cards History

Readings have been around for thousands of years. Tarot reading is a descendant from ‘the casting of lots’ which originated in ancient times. One of the earliest recorded ‘casting of lots’ occurred in 8th century BC. Phoenician sailors drew lots to find out who was responsible for storms at sea. This was recorded in the Book of Jonah in the Old Testament. However, many other ancient cultures have also used lots which then developed into tarot card readings as we know them over time.

Tarot cards were and still are a random form of decision-making known as ‘cleromancy’. This comes from the Greek work ‘kleros’ meaning lot or inheritance. Around the 15th century in Italy, tarot cards were known as ‘tarocchi’ in a game which resembled Bridge. However, some say that tarot cards were present in Europe since around 1200 AD. It is thought by some, that wealthy families often held tarot events for entertainment and enlightenment. At the very least, wealthy people commissioned beautifully painted tarot decks for their own amusement, entertainment and spiritual growth.

Tarot Card Spreads

There are many types of tarot decks and spreads available. Our psychics will choose a spread or deck for you based on their own preferences. Tarot psychics will gain spiritual information and individual meaning from each card. These often confirm the messages they are already receiving for you. Tarot psychics do this by calling on other psychic abilities such as clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience and even mediumship.
