Tarot or ‘Tarrochi’ as it was originally known has been around since at least the 15th century, and there is evidence to suggest that it has been around a lot longer. Made up of a set of cards (usually 78 in number) the Tarot was used as a tool traditionally by occultists and mystics within the practise of divination, the practise of gaining knowledge or insights by means outside of the normal senses.
As with Ouija boards it is not believed that the Tarot cards themselves contain magical abilities, but rather that the tarot cards are used as a focusing tool by the card reader, who through interpretation of the images that adorn the tarot cards, is able to glean information, and offer advice regarding the past, present, and future.
