“The Tarot is a collection of symbols or archetypes that represent all of human experience. I describe the Tarot as the map of spirit, heart, and soul. You lay it out so you can get a bird’s-eye view.”
- Angeliska Polacheck
Tarot has been around since the mid-15th century, predicting the future and revealing some of our deepest guarded secrets. Connecting with the very essence of the human spirit, tarot cards are often seen as a tool in one’s spiritual journey, providing both guidance and enlightenment.
Many people, however, are unaware of the connection and influence that exists between tarot and the zodiac. It is believed that certain cards in the tarot deck are connected with each sign of the zodiac, representing those born under that sign, and the lives that they have before them. These cards can reveal challenges in our future, details about our personalities and lessons that we are to learn throughout the course of our lives.
