| Tarot cards date back to the early 1300's and originated as a parlor game. It wasn't until the mid-1500's that tarot cards donned their "mystic cloak."
These cards have since traveled a long and winding road -- from a game, to a tool of prophecy, to the work of the "devil" and so on.
The past few years have seen a resurgence in the use of tarot cards as a spiritual guide. Divination has taken on many guises since the beginning of man -- Spider webs in May foretell a cold winter, burning feet mean a storm coming.
Tarot cards are no different. They are simply another tool. They don't provide a quick fix, nor can they tell you what is absolutely going to happen. They give a snapshot of where you are RIGHT NOW. A conscientious tarot reader maintains a strict standard of ethics when it comes to divination. If you do meet a reader who tells you there's a wandering demon causing all your problems - RUN!
As with anything that bears on psychic awareness or talent, the more open "you" are, the better reading "I" can get. You shouldn't go to a reader hoping that they prove something to you
-- it's a waste of time, money and energy. Rather, if you have a specific problem or just are feeling "lost" a reading can prove to be a wonderful tool to help you focus and get your feet on the path again.
