Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 5: In the 1400s, the original tarot decks were used for card games in northern Italy. Around this time, the church was preaching against all games of chance (playing cards, dice, board games, and so on) as forms of gambling and frivolous activity that distracted the faithful from the road to salvation. In modern times, Pope Francis (2014) has said: ‘In order to solve their problems many people resort to fortune tellers and tarot cards. But only Jesus saves, and we must bear witness to this! He is the only one.’ 6 Interestingly, the modern use of the tarot for self-exploration is more consistent with the ideas of the Protestant Reformation than with traditional Catholicism because tarot assumes that individuals can discover truth on their own without the intermediary of a hierarchical religious organization.

Complete Book of Tarot: Former president Bill Clinton was born on August 19, 1946. Thus, his birth cards are found by adding 8 + 19 + 1946 = 1973, and then reducing 1973: 1 + 9 + 7 + 3 = 20. Clinton’s personality card is 20, Judgment (XX), and his soul card is 20 reduced: 2 + 0 = 2, the High Priestess (II).
