What is Tarot?
Tarot is a ancient series of images containing metaphors and stories that have been used for teaching and divination since the time of the ancient Egyptians. It is said that the cards and their images were based on the legendary Book of Thoth, which supposedly belonged to the Egyptian god of wisdom.
Tarot having such a long history stretching across many populations over the past few millennia has made it a staple in most homes that practice divination. They are almost always treated with respect as the knowledge contained is sacred.
When using tarot the reader will place themselves into a receptive state so that as they connect to your energy they can observe and read without bias. A good reader will tell you their intuition as well as the card meaning. Ultimately what you are seeking in a reading is not just a message from the cards but a message from spirit/god/the universe through the reader, it is their lexicon that determines the quality of the reading.
"Divination (from Latin divinare "to foresee, to foretell, to predict, to prophesy ", related to divinus, divine), or "to be inspired by a god", is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of an occultic, standardized process or ritual." - wiki
