Although tarot originated as a card game and work of art for wealthy Italian families, it may have been used for a rudimentary form of divination as early as the sixteenth century. The Italian nobility of the 1500s played a game called tarrochi appropriati in which players drew cards at random, using the images on those cards to inspire the writing of poetic verses about each other’s destiny. These cards were called sortes, an Italian word meaning fate, lot, destiny, or chance. Over time the tarot became a tool for divination.
One thing that every beginner should understand is that Tarot cards are not able to give you a definite answer to all of your questions. You are not able to ask the cards who you are going to marry, but you are able to find out if marriage is in your future. The Tarot cards are there to map out likely trends in your future. These maps are based on your current path. As your path changes, so will the cards.
When you use tarot cards, you have to understand that the cards alone are not enough. To be able to tap into the mystical forces and truly understand the power of divination, you have to prepare yourself. You will want to make sure that you are mentally prepared for the reading.
