History of Tarot Cards and Tarot Card Meanings



The relationship between Tarot Cards and playing cards is well documented. Playing cards appeared in Christian Europe during the period 1375-1380. The first known Tarot Cards were created between 1430 and 1450 for nobility in northern Italy. The 78-card Tarot Card deck resulted from adding 21 Trumps and the Fool to an early 56-card variant playing card deck. Tarot Cards (or Taroc Cards, or Tarocchi cards) were originally used for playing a card game called tarocchi, and had no more (or less) to do with foretelling the future than did other types of playing cards. The Visconti-Sforza Tarot Card deck is a 15th century Tarot deck and one of the oldest known to exist. It had a significant impact on the visual composition, card numbering and interpretation of modern decks.

The Tarot Cards eventually came to be associated with mysticism and magic. But it wasn't until the 18th and 19th century. When France and England, followers of the occult discovered Tarot Cards. They saw the symbolic pictures of the cards as having more meaning than the simple trump cards they were used for at the time. The Tarot was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, and popularized by occult societies such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The early Tarot symbolism was deeply rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe, but over the centuries it has grown to incorporate everything from Astrology and Kabbalah to Runes (which predate the Tarot by 1000 years) and the I Ching (which predates the Tarot by 2500 years).

Tarot became increasingly popular beginning in 1910, with the publication of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot, which included symbolic images related to divinatory meanings on the numeric or pip cards. (Arthur Edward Waite had been an early member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn).
