Tarot is a set of seventy-eight cards, each featuring different symbolic pictures. A standard Tarot deck is made up of 22 cards called the major arcana or trumps, and four suits of 14 cards – similar to playing cards – called the minor arcana or pip cards.
Tarot cards can be used for practical problem-solving, creative visualisation, meditation, self-improvement, as a tool of understanding, for divination and fortune-telling, even for card games. Some collect Tarot cards simply for the joy of the artwork, while other delve further into research and study of the history of Tarot cards.

Why is the tarot so important for a witch to learn?
Well I personally believe they can be an excellent tool to use for helping you to see possibilities and outcomes you may not have thought of. If you have been asked to do a spell or working for someone it is best to check using your tarot and ask if there is any problems likely to occur if you did this, you can also get a “second opinion” about someone you are about to meet. I use them if something is making me feel uneasy and I am not sure what it is. If someone is trying to conceal something about themselves or blocks you psychically it is good to have a tool like the tarot as a form of protection.
