Where and when the Tarot originated no one knows for sure. Yet, this ancient tool continues to exist because of a belief system that it can provide insight into one's life.
The first 78 numbers within “The Wheel of Predictability” esoterically represent people and life experiences as revealed by the Tarot
which is an ancient tool used to explore life experiences. The first
22 cards in a tarot deck represent major life developments while
the remaining 56 cards have been divided into four categories and represent everyday life experiences. Astrology refers to these four categories as Elements (Fire, Water, Air and Earth) while the Tarot refers to them as Suits: Wands for Fire, Hearts for Water, Swords
for Air and Pentacles for Earth.
The Tarot is an intuitive tool.
