New Age Tarot
The Tarot are derived from playing cards which first entered Europe in the late 14th century. Their introduction caused controversy and resulted in the first documented ban of their use being in Bern Switzerland in 1367 but this did not stop their widespread which can be traced to 1377.
Based on the name of a card game, what became known as Tarot cards were created between 1430 and 1450 but their use as a simple means of divination to see the future with divine help did not occur until around 1540.
However, this was slow to develop and they were not widely adopted by clairvoyants until the 18th century. Today the Tarot are widely used by psychics with regard to helping people see what the future has in store or to solve a wide range of difficulties including personal issues and difficulties with relationships.
