Tarot has been around for centuries. It was and still is popularized as a
tool for fortune telling. In the Medieval times, at the height of the
persecution of suspected heretics, Tarot must have been tucked
away in seclusion among other practices. But tarot never disappeared.
There were believers who turned to the wisdom and insight of tarot.
Tarot has stirred the minds of many philosophers, occultists, mystics.
Today, into modern era, psychologists,writers and other artists have
come forward with their work on Tarot. Writers were inspired to write
books on the esoteric side of tarot. There are scholars who delve into
the link between Tarot and the Kaballah and other metaphysical aspect
of Tarot. Many artists create their own decks, a new tarot deck is
out every twenty minutes.
Into the 21st century, Tarot sweeps the world, thanks to the phenomenal
desire for “an awakening” in the hearts and minds of today's society.
Many realize that Tarot can be a very helpful tool in the quest for
spirituality.There are Tarot enthusiasts, practitioners, true believers
who promoteTarot, write about Tarot, create Tarot decks, make Tarot
part of their daily life.
They turn to the wisdom and insight of Tarot as they navigate this
interesting, mysterious at times difficult journey we call Life.There are
others who apply their knowledge along with their intuitive gifts and
try to make a living by reading Tarot cards.
Actuially, it is such a misinterpretation when many refer to a Tarot reading
as “fortune telling.” The images of Tarot are symbolic, they convey deeper
meanings at the soul level. Tarot for some is a very public journey and it can
be misunderstood and misconstrued.

"For a great many people, Tarot is a very private journey seeking peace
of mind, deeper understanding of soul, a closer relationship with God,
however you may conceive that to be, and an embrace of personal
For many people life is difficult to navigate and they have found comfort
in the Tarot or in the wisdom and kindness of the many gifted Tarot readers
who listen without judgment, give without expecting anything back and share
compassion, wisdom and humour during other peoples hours of darkness
There are ladies and gentlemen who give their lives to Tarot with grace
and authenticity, sharing their gift of insight with their clients. All too
often, clients forget their reader till the next time they need some
answers. Take a moment to let your Tarot reader know how much
they mean to you, they most surely appreciate your thoughtfulness.
To all beautiful Tarot friends, fellow enthusiasts and
clients here, and on the other side of the veil, for their support, caring
and concern over the years. We have built something wonderful
together; a legacy for those struggling today and for future generations
which was born out of our collective wisdom, knowledge, observations
and the pain of our own experiences. "
Life with tarot is not an easy journey. There are readings when the
cards take the seeker on an entirely different aspect of Life. Tarot can
be an eye opener to what one needs to know, issues one has not
considered. This is the mystery of the wisdom of tarot.
We are Tarot!
