Deck of 78 cards, which are used for divination and meditation, or for the practice of ritual magic, and it is also a powerful agent of psychotherapy through psychological analysis and advice.
The true origin of Tarot is unknown. Most authors who know the subject well share the opinion that the introduction and first diffusion in Europe and throughout the western world is due to the Zingarians or Gypsies.
The Deck contains the great archetypes of Jung's psychology, as well as many symbols and allegories of magic and religion. Most likely, the Tarot or Book of Thoth was invented by the ancient Egyptians.
According to Hermesian tradition, two keys remain to be deciphered... that of Astrology and that of Tarot... inside the great pyramid, in which there is a corridor that leads under and through the feet of the sphinx to a temple of initiation. egyptian Along the walls of this temple are tablets or posters of Tarot cards, up to a total of 108, of which we only know 78 (those that were called esoteric Tarot), but there are another 30, which constitute the tablets of the Aeth or esoteric Tarot. , which have not yet been represented on the physical plane.
There are people who believe that Tarot's were discovered by Jewish Kabbalists of Fez in the year 200. We can accept that the last great authority on the Tarot was not a Hebrew, but an Egyptian, in the same way that the last authority of the Kabbalah seems to have been a Hebrew, who is not a Christian.
The Tarot comprises 22 Major Arcana or keys, numbered from 0 to XXI, listed by many authors with 22 letters of the post-Babylonian Hebrew alphabet, and 56 Minor Arcana, formed by 4 suits and 14 cards each, numbered from 1 (the Ace ) to 10, plus page, knight, queen and king.
There is something magnetic and fascinating about Tarot. No two people have the same reaction to these strange letters, but there is no doubt that no one forgets the first time they see them or will sit down as a consultant at the table of an experienced interpreter. They serve to analyze the mind and spirit. They remove fears and anxieties from the subconscious.
