Gothic Tarot Deck
The Rider-Waite deck is a good choice for beginners to tarot. However, it isn’t the only option. There are also a variety of other decks to choose from, including the Wild Unknown and Morgan Greer decks. While they’re more aesthetically pleasing, they’re less intuitive for beginning readers. The Morgan Greer deck is essentially the Rider-Waite on steroids. This deck is a great choice for anyone looking for big faces, bright colors, and Game of Thrones-themed imagery. Whatever tarot deck is chosen, it is important to find one you like and easy to interpret.
It is believed that tarot cards originated as a card game similar to bridge. They first appeared in Europe during the 15th century, and were most popular among the rich families in Italy. According to the World of Playing Cards, the original deck was brought to these regions by Islamic soldiers. The deck was probably carried by soldiers while on duty. The culture eventually spread to the indigenous populations. However, this is not the only theory. The TreeHouse Society believes that the game was invented in the 17th century by a German monk, but tarot cards have been around for centuries.
While Tarot is a popular form of fortune telling, it can also be intimidating and scary. Although it’s impossible to predict the future using Tarot cards, a good reading of the Tarot can help you gain insight into your innermost truths. The history of the Tarot is interesting. Originally, the cards were used for a game called Tarocchi. During the 18th century, it began to be used for spiritual divination.
