It believes that Tarot comes from the ancient Egypt but truly it's until the XIII century when there are reliable data of its existence, specifically in Italy. There have been many decks but one of the most recognized and has served as reference to many others is the Tarot of Marseilles. There have been a lot of pioneers from Court de Gebelin, Etteilla, Eliphas Levi, already more recent Pierre Christian, Ely Star, Papus, Stanislas de Guaita, Oswald Wirth, Aleister Crowley, Arthur Edward Waite, etc. There is a fairly close relation between the Tarot and the Cabala, the 22 major arcana and the 22 paths of creation or the 22 letters of hebraic alphabet. Tarot consists of 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana, in total 78 cards. Of course are the major arcana the most important and what have a bigger descriptive power but the minor arcana for readings very particular or specialized its help always will be grateful. The images of Tarot enclose a very great mystery and are inspired in all the events of life, both as good as the bad, the positive and the negative.
