From Game to Divination – History of Tarot

The history of Tarot is disputed by many but the truth is that it was never intended to be a tool of divination. It was originally nothing more than a card game.

According Kim Arnold, the founder of the UK Tarot Conference:

“Tarot was not originally designed as a tool for divination, but as a card game that became popular as a fortune-telling aid in the late eighteenth century.”
