Examine the Tarot and inspire your intuitive mind with Fairy tales, Greek Gods, Guardian Angels, and Celtic Myths, etc. Tarot cards first appeared in France in 1392. Now there are hundreds of decks to choose from. Some practitioners make their own decks and have their own favourite layouts. The art of forecasting and healing go back to the dawn of time; when the mind, body, and spirit in unison meant you are healthy, happy, and wise. I have over 38 Tarot card decks and counting, each week I will be featuring one deck from my collection, a card a day. The tarot cards are meant to open your mind to the numerous possibilities available to you, please note that I never read the card in reverse or contraire. The Tarot cards are intended to offer you, a third party unbiased opinion, or maybe just a timely warning… Trust your first impressions when reading the cards meaning, and applying it to your life at the present time. I have added a little numerology, which is the basic structure used in the minor arcana, and a Child’s poem on the days of the week, just for you. Enjoy!
