What are Tarot Cards ?

A tarot card reading is a practice where a deck of tarot cards, typically consisting of 78 cards, is used to gain insight into the past, present, or future. Each card in the deck has a specific meaning, and the arrangement of cards drawn during a reading is interpreted by a tarot reader to provide guidance or insights into various aspects of a person’s life, such as relationships, career, and personal development.

Tarot cards are divided into two main groups: the Major Arcana, which consists of 22 cards that represent major life events and archetypal symbols, and the Minor Arcana, which consists of four suits (Cups, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles) with cards numbered from Ace to 10, along with court cards (Page, Knight, Queen, and King) representing different personality types.

During a reading, the tarot reader may lay out the cards in a specific spread and interpret their meanings based on the positions and relationships between the cards. It’s important to note that tarot readings are often seen as a form of divination or spiritual guidance, and interpretations can vary depending on the reader’s perspective and the specific deck used. People seek tarot readings for insights, self-reflection, and guidance on important life decisions.
