Tarot started as a deck of cards used to play games in the 15th century in various parts of Europe, and was not used as a divination tool until the 18th century. A typical deck is composed of four suits (Minor Arcana), each containing fourteen cards, and twenty two trump cards (Major Arcana).

The following will be a guide on how to use a tarot deck for the purpose of divination, including the meanings of all the cards, and spreads in which to use them in.

I hope to make this a very beginner friendly guide, so enjoy!
