What is tarot?
Tarot is blending of cosmic energy, with the body energy which is amalgamated with printed cards–which are the tools of Tarot–to foretell the futures of a consulter.
Tarot is a system to read divine messages through pictorial cards. Tarot is reading of the future by interpretation of the ways of nature using the energy dispersed from body and the energy which is around us termed as cosmic energy. There are number of thought to the real etymology of the word Tarot. Some say that, the word Tarot is derived from the Italian Tarocchi others argue that the origin of the name Tarot is to the Taro River which is in Northern Italy near Parma, advocating the that game originated in Northern Italy in Milan or Bologna. Some of the other historians perceive that this name Tarot has come from Arabic word Turuq which means ‘ways’ or it can also be from another word of the same language Taraka meaning ‘to leave, abandon, omit, or leave behind’. The French etymology advocates that the Italian word Tarocco is the outcome of the Arabic word Tarh which means ‘rejection, subtraction, deduction or discount’.
