The tarot is an old form of divination which utilises a deck of cards, however, the style of the cards is different from ordinary playing cards. There are 78 cards in total with 22 known as ‘major arcana’ and 56 known as the ‘minor arcana’. The cards have a separate symbolism attached to each one which tell a story when read singularly, or, when combined with the other cards tell a more detailed story. The cards can be laid out into different ‘spreads’ which consist of a varying number of cards – each position relates to a certain meaning.   

A tarot reading can provide guidance in all aspects of our lives, as well as provide a pathway to a deeper understanding of ourselves. They can act as a warning sign if we are going in the wrong direction or approaching situations in a way that is detrimental to us, as well as giving confirmation and inspiration when we are on the right track. Tarot can tell us if it is a time for taking action, or a time for waiting and sowing seeds for the future. It can give us a general idea of the influences currently active in our lives and where they are heading.
