Old English Tarot Card Meanings
The Rider-Waite deck is a good choice for beginners to tarot. However, it isn’t the only option. There are many other decks you can choose from, such as the Morgan Greer and Wild Unknown decks. They are more visually appealing, but they are less intuitive for beginners. The Morgan Greer deck is basically 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. But whatever tarot deck you choose, the most important thing is finding one that you like and is intuitive enough to interpret.
It is believed that tarot cards originated as a card game similar to bridge. They were first introduced in Europe in the 15th century and were popular with wealthy families in Italy. According to World of Playing Cards the original deck was brought by Islamic soldiers to these regions. The soldiers probably carried the deck on duty. The culture eventually spread to the indigenous populations. However, this is not the only theory. The TreeHouse Society believes the game was created in 17th century by a German monk. However, tarot cards have existed for centuries.
While Tarot is a popular form of fortune telling, it can also be intimidating and scary. While it isn’t possible to tell the future with Tarot cards, a good tarot reading can help you increase awareness of your innermost truths. The history of the Tarot is interesting. The cards were originally used to play a game called Tarocchi. During the 18th century, it began to be used for spiritual divination.
