The Interesting World of Tarot Cards and Fortune

Author: IC

Ever since we were able to look up at the sky we have wondered about our purpose in life, what the future holds for us, what our life will be like, what happens after death and how to tell if someone is telling us the truth about something? The fact is that we are filled with several questions which can't be answered easily, but regardless how hard these questions might be to answer, we constantly look for knowledge which is out of our reach, it is just our nature to want to improve our lives and be inquisitive about things we don't know.

Tarot cards have been around for while, some say their origins can be traced back all the way to the fourteenth century when these cards were introduced to Egypt by the Mamelukes who were slave soldiers who converted to Islam. The set of cards introduced originally has evolved into a full set of 78 cards which are divided in several parts, these are called the major and the minor Arcanas.

The major Arcana is comprised of 22 cards, the major arcana cards are also referred to as "trump cards or major trumps", the remaining 56 cards form the minor arcana. The minor arcana is sub-divided into four suits which represent air, water, fire and earth elements.

The following associations are given to the lower arcana:

- The Tarot suit which has wands, staves, batons or rods is associated with the element of fire.
- The Suit which has pentacles or coins is associated to the earth element.
- Chalices or cups are associated to water.
- Swords or spades are associated to air.

In Europe the cards were used to play the Tarot game, in other countries where the game was unknown this set of cards was used for divination purposes, this set of cards has grown to be the most popular tool used to tell someone's fortune, predict the future and know answers which need and answer but have no earthly solution. This set of cards is also known as the "book of divination of the Gypsies" who were travelers who mastered the use of this set of cards to tell someone's fortune and much more.

A Tarot card reader is able to tell someone's fortune or answer any question by interpreting the order of the cards and their meaning as they are shown during a reading. Some people say that the cards are guided by a spiritual force such as Gaia and others believe that they are able to tap into a collective unconscious, regardless of the forces which act on these readings, Tarot readings are very popular and have been recognized for being quite accurate in several occasions.
