What is the Tarot?

A deck of 78 playing cards. It is divided into a Major (22 cards) and a Minor Arcana (56). It originated in the Renaissance and was first used as a game (Visconti-Sforza Tarot) and later for the interpretation of the future.

Among the best known decks in the world are the Crowley Tarot and the most famous, the Rider-Waite Tarot. These were designed by Arthur Edward Waite and Aleister Crowley, members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

Rider Waite is one of the most popular tarot decks in use today and is considered a classic of the genre. The images on the Rider Waite Tarot depict symbolic scenes that give us insight into our lives and help us make decisions about our future.

Meaning and purpose - why spread tarot cards?

The Tarot is a complex deck consisting of a total of 78 cards. The deck is divided into two parts: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana contains 22 cards, while the Minor Arcana includes 56. Each of its suits corresponds to one of the four elements: fire, water, air and earth.

The term is derived from the Latin word arcanum (mystery). The cards are meant to help decipher what lies hidden. This happens through a confrontation with one' s self, thus an introspection to reach the unconscious, such as emotions and feelings. Through these visualized indications, you can interpret the tarot cards by yourself when laying them.

The connection to the Tree of Life of the Kabbalah

The structure and interpretation of the tarot cards is closely connected with the Kabbalah.

The focus is on the Tree of Life with its 10 Sephiroth. This ancient Hebrew thought pattern is used in two fundamentally different ways.

The way of the Major Arcana

There are 22 connections between the 10 Sephiroth, each of which is represented by a Tarot card of the Major Arcana.

The cards portray the path of development of the human being. They show an ascent that begins in the material reality (card 21 - world). In the course of life, the individual undergoes a transformation and approaches more and more to the greater as a result of life experience and knowledge.

But if you want, you can comprehend the tarot exactly the other way around. So did David Bowie in his song Station to Station. In it he has sung of a magic movement which begins with Kether (1st Sephira) and ends with Malkuth (10th Sephira). Something is set in motion from a state of absolute being and magic power (Kether), that has consequences down to the earth (Malkuth) and forms this. The matter is shaped with the help of magic and by the own willpower.

The Minor Arcana and its Sephiroth

In the 54 cards of the Minor Arcana, the Kabbalah shows itself through the four elements: earth, water, fire and air. The 10 Sephiroth each exist as:

  • Wands - fire - energy and willpower
  • entacles - earth - the mundane
  • Swords - air - intellect and freedom
  • Cups - water - feelings and happiness

What are card spreads?

Using a spread, the cards are placed according to a certain pattern. Each position represents a separate point of view of the reading. It can answer a part of the whole question, represent a person or show a solution, for example.

Reading method - One card

This is a straightforward way to get information about a particular question or issue. In this method of reading, only one card is used, which can either give a clue for the day or for a specific topic. So you get a brief overview of a situation, an interpretation of the future for the coming hours or a small suggestion, for example.

Reading the past, present and future

There are many different tarot spreads, but the past-present-future spread is one of the most common. This spread is used to get an overview of what happened in the past, what is happening now and what might happen in the future.

To use this system, you shuffle the cards and arrange three of them in a fan pattern. The first card represents the past, the second card the present, and the third card the future. Read each card individually to understand what it means to you.


Start by learning the basic meanings of each card, and then move on to studying the combinations of cards in a particular spread. With enough practice, you will then be able to read the Tarot like an expert.
