History :
The Tarot deck first appeared in Northern Italy in the 15th century primarily for the purpose of gambling and card games. Tarot also known as tarocchi, tarock. Although the Tarot was first used in a game called Triumphs, it was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, meditation and fortune telling.

In most people's minds, "Tarot card reading" means a woman in flowing robes, leaning over a small table in a candlelit room, foretelling impending doom. But that's not really what Tarot cards are about. In fact, they're not even really meant to tell your fortune or future.

Tarot Card Meanings :
As a psychic reader, I find tarot cards a useful tool, but only a tool. During readings they assist a psychic in helping others to see patterns in their lives, explore their psyches, and gain spiritual insight. And while Tarot cards always return relevant results, they are still only as good as the psychic reader interpreting their meaning. Tarot cards are used as a tool for problem-solving & self-improvement.

About Tarot Card :
The tarot is a deck of 78 picture cards. Tarot decks have 22 Major Arcana cards, and 56 Minor Arcana cards. Major Arcana are unique cards that predict major events in life as opposed to everyday ups and downs. If your reading contains a lot of Major Arcana cards, then events are more or less out of your control. The Minor Arcana or court cards are numbered and correspond loosely to the suits of standard playing cards. These cards can deal with more mundane occurrences.

Question Readings :
In question readings, you are addressing a specific question. Tarot is not intended to answer specific yes or no questions but instead should be used as a guide to help you make the decision yourself. For this reason, the way a question is stated is very important. If you have the answer before the reading, then you're not allowing the cards to guide your overall decision. Your question should be focused.

Be positive:
Make sure your question is stated in a positive rather than negative way. Instead of asking why a specific event hasn't happened, ask what you can do to help make that event happen.

There are many varieties of tarot cards used by the psychic readers today. The type of cards used depends on the psychic reader. Every Tarot deck is rich with unique imagery and symbolism. I used The Rider-Waite tarot deck is one of the most popular Tarot Decks in use today.
