Tarot - Playing Cards
Tarot is an ancient fortune-telling game using 78 different pictures cards, dating back to 12 40. The tarot is first mentioned in an English church document (Synod of Worchester).
The cards have been used to look into the future-'consulting the oracle'-but are also used as a meditation on life. The wisdom of the tarot is helpful in exploring different possibilities and reaching a deeper understanding of situations and possible solutions.
