The history of Tarot dates back more than 600 years and has been associated with many mystical beliefs and esoteric interests as well as psychological interpretations. This has resulted in deck of 78 cards, which are divided into the 22 cards of the major arcana and 56 of the minor arcana. These cards are shuffled together and design into a spread. The tarot card reader then uses the cards as a divination tool to give a reading.
Various spreads can be used such as the 21 card bohemian spread or the 10 card Celtic cross spread or even the simplest using one card. Some readers hold significance if a card is reversed while others don’t.
