Tarot cards are not a new thing. In fact, they have been around for hundreds of years. The history of tarot cards date all the way back to the late 1300’s and were first seen in Europe. Although, Islamic societies claim to have had tarot cards several centuries before that. The original tarot cards were first developed as a game and had no special powers behind them. The first game was very similar to the game of bridge that we play in this day and age. Instead of bridge it was called triumph. There were no specific suits to the cards they were just 22 different pictures on the tarot cards most of which were permanent trump cards.
It wasn’t until the 1700’s that tarot cards became associated with the occult. Individuals in Europe, specifically France and England, believed the cards and symbols had more meaning to them than just basic trump cards. They soon began to use them as a divination tool. Like I mentioned earlier, there are those that believe tarot cards were around much before the 1300’s. Many people have tried to trace the cards back to ancient Egypt. It is certainly possible but from the studies that I have read I personally believe they were founded in Europe.
Throughout the years the meaning of each tarot card has changed considerably. We have the hanged man, judgment card, the empress, the chariot along with others. They have been shaped by each individual’s particular use for them and they era in which they have lived. There are several different styles of tarot cards on the market.
