The Tarot is a symbolic map of the consciousness that encompasses our journey through life, both spiritually and practically.
A Tarot reading is the practice of divining wisdom and guidance through a specific spread (or layout) of Tarot cards. The cards provide insight into the innermost truths of your higher self.
The origin of the Tarot is unknown, but we do have documented references of Tarot card use back to fourteenth century Europe. The Tarot has been used as an oracle, in the basic form we know today, since the beginning of the seventeenth century.
