The experiences of the Tarot is something that is obscured by time. There are some references and researchers that connect the origin of the Tarot with that of Ancient Egypt, while other historians and scholars suggest that the Tarot shares family history with ancient gypsy cultures. Still, there are other researchers that attach an Italianorigin to the Tarot cards, and it is presumed that the Tarot Cards became a tool of divination right around the 1400s. Since that time, hundreds of variant decks have evolved and are currently in use. One of the most standard decks being the Rider-Waite deck.

Tarot cards are separated into five divisions: The Major Arcana, The Suit of Wands, The Suit of Coins, The Suit of Cups, and the Suit of Swords. Each card in The Major Arcana has an equivalent face card for every following suit.

The suits themselves show divisions as well. Their interpretations and worth are determined by their statuses as Oudlers/Trulls, Kings, Queens, Cavaliers, Jacks, and Others. Oudlers generally display the same point and value as Kings, while the rest from Queens to Jacks are worth one point less than their predecessors.

More than the value of cards, the English-speaking world gives significantly more value to the interpretations of the cards.

Tarot card interpretations are always changing – and they have also differed significantly through time. Nowadays, without regard to, there are common and general card meanings. For example, minor arcana cards customarily display an astrological meaning that changes along with the seasons of the year. On another side of things, court cards talk of folk and their nature. This nature concerns the physio-emotional traits of a human.

More specifically, the determinants of a card’s meaning are the following: Card Number, chief Number, Rulership (Astrology), Hebrew Letter, Translation, and Numerical Value. The meaning is also determined by the position of the card, whether it is upright or Ill-ennobled/Reversed. The difference between peoples’ readings is the weights they impose on the disparate ‘statistics’ and ‘attributes’ of the card.

Along with the evolving interpretations to the meaning of tarot cards come new methods for card readers to express the message to the average Joe. Present, face-to-face card readings are being recovered by phone and online readings. Despite, for abundant impact and experience, face-to-face card readings still trump other methods. Face-to-face tarot readings allow the human being to pick his face-down card, giving him a semblance of control to his fortunes. Face-to-face readings are common in community fairs, parties, and in the streets. The price of a tarot card reading varies depending on the popularity of the reader and how much detail the individual wants to know about his future.

You could also demonstrate a tarot reading done over the phone. If you cannot pinpoint a local individual who does tarot readings or would prefer additional discretion, this may be a satisfying choice. While you should expect a tarot reading over the phone to be rather expensive, do avoid questionable services charging by the minute. There are reputable tarot card readers who provide readings over the phone for a reasonable flat fee. Some might also offer online readings for a slight sum, and provide their interpretation of the cards via email.

Tarot card divination may not be a real science; it might not be as accurate as some members of public would like to believe, but the market for tarot is ever growing through the availability of readings online and in other similar mediums. While this is so, there is still a big demand for face-to-face tarot reading because of the mystique and interactivity. A fair judgment of the industry is that it is growing in its disparate aspects – whether it is face to face, on the phone, or by some other medium. While society drives itself into a more scientific future, the appeal of astrology, especially in tarot cards, is still growing fast.
