What Is Tarot?
Tarot is an ancient system of divination that uses a deck of 78 cards to help you gain insight into your past, present, and future. The cards are divided into two sections: the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana consists of 22 trump cards that represent the major life lessons we all must learn. The Minor Arcana consists of 56 suit cards that represent the day-to-day experiences we have in our lives.

There are many ways that you can use Tarot for guidance. One way is to simply shuffle the deck and draw one card. The card you draw will give you insight into what you need to know right now. Another way to use Tarot is to ask a specific question and do a reading to find the answer. You can also use Tarot as a tool for meditation or visualization. There are limitless possibilities when it comes to using Tarot for guidance!
