What is Tarot and Tarot Reading?

If you are not familiar but still you are searching for Tarot Reading, Tarot cards are a pack of playing cards that are used from the mid-15th century, but the earliest evidence for Tarot cartomancy comes to us from the 1750s anonymous manuscript and the popularization of Tarot reading started with Antoine Court and Jean-Baptiste Alliette (Etteilla) in Paris during the 1780s.

“The origin of this pack of cards is very obscure. Some authorities seek to put it back as far as the ancient Egyptian Mysteries; others try to bring it forward as late as the fifteenth or even the sixteenth century … [but] The only theory of ultimate interest about the Tarot is that it is an admirable symbolic picture of the Universe, based on the data of the Holy Qabalah.”
– Aleister Crowley

The first issue of a Tarot Deck was “Etteilla”, specifically for occult purposes in 1789 from the “Book of Thoth”, and thus the themes on the deck related to ancient Egypt. The deck now consists 78 cards divided into two parts: The Major Arcana (greater secrets) and The Minor Arcana (lesser secrets).

Major Arcana (22 cards) has the following cards: Minor Arcana (56 cards, four suits of 14 cards each) has the following cards:
The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, The Tower, The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, The World, and The Fool. Cards from The Magician to The World are numbered in Roman numerals from I to XXI, while The Fool is the only unnumbered card, sometimes placed at the beginning of the deck as 0, or at the end as XXII. Ten numbered cards, four court cards: the King, Queen, Knight and Page/Jack, in each of the four tarot suits.
