6 types of tarot, 6 different destiny readings
When we talk about the Tarot we think of an ancestral and unique divination system, when the existence of different types of decks of cards so different from each other makes us imagine that there are different ways to interpret the meaning of their symbols as well as to make use of them to guess or connect with some form of higher entity. That's why we show you the types of Tarot you could find.
6 types of tarot, 6 destiny readings
Different origins for ways of interpreting the destiny, also different.
1. Gypsy Tarot
Among the different types of tarot that exist, it's the one that is considered the oldest of all, coming from Egypt and the center of Asia at the hands of the gypsies. It was them who took it to Italy and later, it arrived in France, the neighboring country.
The symbols that it contemplates are those that would represent the different suits of the deck, being these knives, music, coins and bowls, in this way they adapt more to the lifestyle characteristic of the gypsies.
Like other types of tarot, it consists of 22 major arcana, although they don't have numbers and symbolize characteristics of this ancient culture, as well as the different phases of gypsy life.
2. Marseille Tarot
Perhaps it's the most popular deck because it's the one that has had a higher level of acceptance in general and globally. It consists of 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana, the latter being very similar to the Spanish deck.
Such is the popularity that has long enjoyed this type of tarot, that it was the first of the decks printed industrially and made directly in color.
In fact, its color is something that also recalls the motifs represented in the existing stained glass windows in the cathedrals from which inspiration was obtained to create the symbolism represented in them.
3. Rider Waite Tarot
The deck created in the early twentieth century by Arthur Edward Waite got to be, among the most commonly used types of tarot, the most common in northern Europe. In fact, today it's still the most used between English and American people, or instead, a deck totally inspired by it.
Despite resembling quite the Marseille Tarot, the Ride Waite Tarot has certain differences, such as assigning the number zero to the madman's symbol, putting the name "death" on card number 13, and the exchanged position between strength and justice. But in general it maintains the symbolic sense generalized in its 78 letters.
4. Angels Tarot
For those who believe that angels live in places where harmony and love are present, based on that premise it's expected that to make a run of one of the types of tarot that we discuss, the so-called Angels Tarot, it's required that an environment similar enough is recreated to be able to count on the whisper of its answers to our questions.
Through its 78 cards, totally different from each other in meaning and symbology, answers can be obtained related to topics of different nature: love, health, money or any other type of subject for which you wish to know the truth about.
5. Tibetan Tarot
How won't the beauty of these cards invite you to reflect on one's own meaning of life, death, the process of the soul in its various reincarnations and the karma that mediates?
We find among the different types of tarot the so-called Tibetan or Buddhas, a deck composed of 22 arcana, whose numbering portrays the personal evolution from its inception to the end. It must be said that the number of arcana is the only factor that it shares with the tarot of the West. For the rest, it's more about a system of meditation and spiritual work through the contemplation of the images and the internal dialogue that is generated as a result of that.
Really aimed at fostering personal growth, the connection with the different states of consciousness through meditation helps us to visualize our past, the present and to be able to recreate a kind of future vision.
6. Osho Zen Tarot
Are you going through a stage too complex to understand without help? We recommend the use of this deck of all types of tarot that is used as a tool for personal reflection and self-discovery.
With a completely balanced background and capable of transmitting serenity, it provides the opportunity to learn a situation that requires, either a change or an absolute learning, and all this through the connection with the most instinctive side of our personality that we lead to the vital answers we are looking for.
