Dating back to the 1400’s in Northern Italy, originally played as a card game, the first tarot cards were hand-painted, and exquisitely beautiful. Written evidence tells us that tarot cards were used for divination purposes in the 1800’s but it is believed that they were used for fortune telling much earlier than that. Since their creation, tarot cards have been a mysterious part of our culture.  Join tarot card reader and historian Shelley Carter and learn the truth as we know it, about tarot cards and their rich history.
