Tarot-reading is one of the oldest esoteric practices. Lore has it that the art of reading tarot cards originated in Renaissance Italy, though others claim that tarot may go as far back as ancient Egypt, and that Gnostic missionaries may have used tarot archetypes in secret to teach the journey of the soul. What is tarot fact and what is tarot fiction has been lost and obscured with the passage of time. Yet, tarot endures and thrives in modern society because the cards speak our most instinctual and primal selves through their stories, meanings, and symbols.The Tarot Companion reveals the deep messages and mystery of the cards. Quickly and accurately use the tarot to reveal an inner truth, gain insight into a pressing question, or divine what may unfold in your life.
