Tarot is a type of card deck that has existed for hundreds of years. Over its rich and mysterious history it’s been used for different purposes, including as a deck of playing cards. The tarot deck has numbers, suits and trump cards, similar to a standard deck.
The tarot contains 78 cards, with each card representing an archetype, or universal, meaningful symbol. The structure of the tarot deck is perfect because each card represents an aspect of our selves and our lives. Holding a deck is like having a world of possibility in your hands. Although there are many styles of tarot cards, the symbols represent universal themes and energies. They can apply to anyone under any circumstances.
