The Tarot is a deck of cards now commonly used giving readings and divination.
The deck consists of four numbered suits like a regular deck of playing cards, and twenty two picture cards numbered one through twenty-two.
The use of the Tarot as a tool for telling fortunes is dating back to the end of the eighteenth century. The most familiar deck is the so-called Rider-Waite deck. The designs were by Arthur Waite, a member of the occult society Order of the Golden Dawn, in collaboration with artist Pamela Colman Smith, so the deck is sometimes called the Waite-Smith deck.
Hundreds of different Tarot decks now exist.
Tarot cards are used in a traditional fortune telling layout, as well as inspiration cards, affirmation tools, or for self-discovery and intuition building.
