The Use of Tarot
THE USE OF TAROT CARDS
Through out the ages, there has been a stigma attached to using Tarot cards as a means of divination.
There is tons of information on the internet about the history of Tarot cards - dating back to 13th century and an on going argument amongst historians concerning where a bouts the Tarot card was first used at a divinatory tool. Whether it was first used in Italy, Egypt or china, isn't relevant (unless you're a historian). What is important is to understand what Tarot cards are all about.
Some say Tarot cards began their life as ordinary playing cards that were used by gentry as a way of entertaining themselves in the evenings. Others say they were first used as a divinatory tool by a priest who was banned from using the cards and was deported to France after the church condemned the use of Tarot cards as a means of devil worship.
And this is where the stigma was born. Because the Church condemned tarot, the use of the cards went "underground." Only those of the street were less likely to be caught using the cards, and so Tarot readers were later to be described as "Gypsies".
Tarot cards these days are read by thousands of people from all walks of life.
