What is a tarot deck?

A tarot deck is a collection of archetypes and ideas, presented as images with accompanying textual descriptions, that people use to

  • Tell fortunes
  • Engage in Jungian psychological healing/exploration
  • Practice their spirituality

Where did the tarot come from?

The tarot deck emerged out of the Italian renaissance courts. It was picked up by 18th century Freemasons who inscribed it with what Michael Sharp calls old energy archetypes.

For the academic research that backs up this statement, read Michael’s published scholarly article, The Sociology of Tarot.
