I thought it would be interesting to start from basics and question what precisely we are dealing with in the first instance. What is divination? To answer this all important question I consulted an online dictionary and came up with the following :-
Main Entry: div.i.na.tion
Etymology: Middle English divinacioun, from Latin divination-, divinatio, from divinare
Date: 14th century
1 : the art or practice that seeks to foresee or foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by the interpretation of omens or by the aid of supernatural powers
2 : unusual insight : intuitive perception
- di.vi.na.to.ry /d&-'vi-n&-"tOr-E, d&-'vI-n&-, 'di-v&-n&-, -"tor-/ adjective
So, by using Tarot cards as a means of divination we are looking for future trends in our life or possibly guidance from a higher source.
In my opinion anyone can read Tarot cards because we all have access to the divine. It doesn’t matter whether you call it the absolute, God or spirit; it’s all the same.

My book on Tarot, The System of Symbols, gives full details of why the cards mean what they mean, but here I would like to keep it entertaining and simple, so that anyone, whether beginner or advanced student can gain new insight into the Tarot.
