The are many forms of trying to look into the future to see the directions in which our lives will go or to try to find the solution to a problem, among them in this modern day and age of the internet, tarot online reading, horoscope analysis and numerology – although these three examples are but a small selection of the ways and means by which some people try to find out what the future holds for them.
Tarot Online Reading – The History
Tarot cards are one of the oldest of all the methods of having one’s future foretold, as it was already popular around 500 years ago in the north of Italy (albeit at that time as a card game). The Tarot cards later evolved over time to become tools to divine and foretell the future; and they became increasingly popular with those who dabbled in the occult during the Medieval and later the Renaissance periods in central Europe. Tarot cards further evolved to incorporate aspects of, among other beliefs, the Jewish Kabbalah and the Chinese I-Ching; as well as basic astrology and even that of the Runes (which system is even older than the Tarot).
There are those people who live in the western world today who see Tarot online reading as being the pre-eminent tool for – and source of – divination in the 21st century. This fact is borne out be the huge number of sources of information on this form of trying to see into the future which are available on the world wide web – many of which offer free readings and advice from psychics who are happy to share their knowledge of the system with those who are interested in how the cards tell their stories.
Tarot Online Reading – Understanding the Cards
Before one runs headlong into getting a free tarot online reading, one has to do a little research to find out about the two decks of cards used for these readings. One is the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck and the other is the Minchiate Etruria deck. On the one hand there is the greatly symbolic Rider-Waite Tarot Deck, which comprises the traditional number of seventy eight cards; while on the other hand there is the Minchiate Etruria deck which is the larger of the two decks, having a total of ninety seven cards. The larger number of cards in this deck relates to the fact that, over a long period of time, aspects of the four elements as well as the astrological houses have been absorbed into it and, in addition, this deck also has more trump cards than the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck.
Tarot Online Reading – The Variations
There are many variations of tarot online reading available on the internet. The options include the top end tarot online reading, very serious and erudite readers of these tarot cards, who insist that one signs up and pays a fee in order to be taken seriously and to have one’s privacy protected; the other end of the scale offers ready-printed readings of cards which are shuffled by computer graphics and chosen by the click of a mouse.
