Overview

"Reading the cards" is synonymous with fortunetelling in the minds of many people.

For centuries, people have turned to picture cards for answers, enlightenment and entertainment. The Tarot has inspired artists, mystics, philosophers, religious and ordinary people to create systems of belief and meanings tailored to it - and in the process create new views and versions of the Tarot to reflect their own beliefs about life and spirituality. The Tarot has been studied by some of the greatest (and most bizarre) minds in every generation. For some, it is a tool for personal enlightenment; for others, a key that unlocks the door to the future.

Some believe that a deck of Tarot cards holds mystical ability to foretell the future. Others insist that it is only an enabler - that it helps people to unlock their own psychic powers. There are therapists who attribute miracles to the power of the Tarot to offer insight into everyday life. What is the Tarot that it inspires so many and varied interpretations and beliefs?

Tarot cards have been used for hundreds if not thousands of years to gain insight, see patterns, give counsel and even predict the future. No one is exactly sure how the Tarot works. One theory is that all things are connected and nothing happens by chance, and that the Tarot, like the I Ching, is simply a method of revealing these workings of interconnectedness or synchronicity. All that really matters is that the Tarot does work.

This book takes you into the world of the tarot and gives you insight into its history, the cards and layouts for Divination. After reading, you will have the knowledge to do a reading for yourself or others. Inside The World Of Tarot is your first stop in a journey of enlightenment.
