History of Tarot Reading and Things you never want to Know

Tarot card reading invariably conjures up visions of “that” old tramp lady sitting before her crystal ball in a foggy room full of weird things. “Tarot” itself has that aura of a secret around it since nobody knows precisely where or when Tarot reading started. The vast majority of the written history of the tarot cards originates from Italy, in spite of the fact that students of history are certain of its existence much before that.

 

Some trust that the Tarot was conveyed to Europe by the Knights Templar after the Crusades while others trust the gypsies would indulge Tarot reading, while they went through the continent in the Middle Ages.

 

The most punctual surviving Tarot cards are hand painted decks that were made in Italy, around the year 1441. They were made for the court of Filippo Maria Visconti, the Duke of Milan (from 1412 to 1447) and these cards are known as the Visconti-Sforza Tarocchi. This name was given to them since that was the name of the families for whom these cards were made. We know this because the heraldry of these families was incorporated on the cards themselves. Depictions of relatives are additionally utilized as a part of the cards.

 

It’s been expressed that the present conventional playing cards get from Tarot cards, with the Joker being a representative of the Fool card from the Major Arcana. Apologies, yet standard playing cards grew much earlier and first entered Europe from the Islamic world around 1375.

 

The suits of the Tarot as we probably are aware. They are unique than the original ones. The suits of Tarot are gotten from Islamic playing cards which were Coins, Cups, Swords and Polo Sticks. The session of polo was significant in the Islamic culture but was not known in Europe when the cards arrived, so the suit of Polo sticks inevitably became known as the suit of Staves or Batons. In Italy and Spain, playing cards have held the suits of Batons, Coins, Cups, and Swords.

 

Tarot was not composed as a method for concealing obscure data from the ignorant or from attacking countries. There are many references to Tarot during the fifteenth Century, and all relate to Tarot as a game, it is never said as having been utilized in any other form during that time. It was designed as a game and no elusive associations, nor fortune-telling properties, were attributed to it until many centuries later. The no doubt purpose behind its creation was that the Duke of Milan (Filippo Maria Visconti) needed a minor change from the standard playing card deck that he had been utilizing. He asked his artist Bonifacio Bembo to make an expansion of this game.

 

The pictures of the cards in the advanced Tarot are comparative in some ways to the original Tarot cards that Bembo made; however, there have been many changes. Throughout the years the photos on the cards have been changed by soothsayers in order to make them supernatural or magical. A decent case of these progressions is in the card known as The Fool. Rather than being shown as a naive, trusting soul who was gallivanting around the countryside with his loyal dog, he was initially portrayed in rags, looking very hopeless. He was thought of as the lowest of all within the physical realm. He was the exemplary “village idiot”. The card called The High Priestess used to be known as The Popess, The Hierophant was once called The Pope, The Hermit used to be known as Hunchback or Father Time, The Hanged Man was The Traitor, and Judgment was known as The Angel.

 

The Major Arcana cards depend on Christian principles, not on exclusive or mysterious knowledge. For the Major Arcana, the artist, Bembo, chose to use a purposeful anecdote of religious teaching that could be effortlessly shown in a series of pictures. In the event that you take a gander at sources from the fifteenth and sixteenth hundreds of years and a portion of the early decks that run down the trump cards in an arrangement, you will see a distinct pattern emerge. This example demonstrates the physical realm as the most reduction of presence, and after that demonstrates the way of Christian spirituality leading the way to their God. The last card in the Major Arcana is the World card, and an early author regarding the matter portrayed this last card as “The World, that is, God the Father”. The expressions “Major Arcana” and “Minor Arcana” are relatively recent terminology. Paul Christian, a soothsayer from the 1800s acquainted these terms with the Tarot. These terms were given to the Tarot in order to make it seem more magical and mysterious. The word Arcana implies puzzling, or mystery, and by giving to the cards these Latin titles, it was installed with a mystical quality that was never proposed by the first designers of the game.

 

The advanced Tarot has turned into an intense series of supernatural pictures that can genuinely be viewed as a spiritual journey. It is loaded with mystical, esoteric symbols and models, making it a play area for the imagination. This is splendid! This is a critical part of Tarots nowadays. However, when individuals advance an imaginary history basically to support the mystique of a subject, it undermines the value of true nature when the fact of the matter is finally uncovered.
