Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The fifteenth-century Renaissance artists who created the tarot added a fifth suit of trump cards (trionfi) to the traditional playing card deck that originally came to Europe via Mamluk, Egypt. This additional suit of trumps, now called the major arcana (‘greater secrets’) consists of twenty-two allegorical images inspired by Greek and Roman mythology and the Bible. Many tarot readers view the sequence of trump cards as a series of moral lessons the Fool must master on his journey to salvation. Occultists often refer to the cards as ‘keys’ because of a 1781 speculation by Antoine Court de Gébelin that each major arcana card represents a key to the ancient magical wisdom of the Egyptian god Thoth, whose mysteries are encoded in the symbolism of the cards.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 1: The tarot was invented as a card game during the Renaissance by Italian artists who incorporated images and ideas from ancient Greek and Roman mythology, which probably included themes derived from the cult of Thoth Hermes Trismegistus. The gypsies, who originated in India, were not ancient Egyptian priests and did not arrive in Europe until well after the Italians produced the first tarot decks.

Complete Book of Tarot: The Sacred Practices spread is usually performed once weekly by separating the deck into major arcana, court cards, and numbered pip cards. You select one card at random from each grouping. The major arcana card represents the weeks spiritual path. The pip card signifies a contemplative practice that will guide you along that sacred path. Finally, the court card indicates a personality posture, that is, the attitudes and behaviors that will assist you in your spiritual practice. The combination of these three cards offers a spiritual lesson to contemplate during the week ahead.
