Creative Tarot: We don’t know the full history of tarot, but these are the elements that helped create it. Humans searching for meaning discover it in the everyday things they have lying around. They pay attention to and consider the patterns of the cards. They share their knowledge with others, who then expand on those meanings. They tell one another stories about the cards, thereby creating even more complex patterns and meanings. And then it becomes as if we were never without them.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 12: The history of the tarot is fascinating, but you don’t need to know it to read the cards effectively. On the other hand, learning about the origins of the ideas and symbols artists used to illustrate the cards can give you a greater sense of their meaning and place in Western culture. I enjoy understanding the evolution of ideas and historical trends, so I have included numerous comments about history throughout this text. Knowing a little about the history can keep you from falling prey to many of the false ideas about the cards that have been perpetrated over the course of time. Tarot is a fanciful and imaginative process, so it’s nice to keep at least one foot planted on the ground.

Tarot Triumphs: As our knowledge of Tarot history grows, different theories will probably continue to emerge, and opinions will not be united anytime soon. Finding out what came first, which elements were involved, and how they came together is a hard task. My guess is that there was some kind of conscious infusion of a teaching tradition into the Tarot cards.
