Tarot cards date back to the 1400’s.  They are not only used for divination but also for self-analysis and meditation.  The 78 card deck is divided into 2 sections, the 22 major arcana cards and the 56 minor arcana cards.  The major arcana deals with life events and is often referred to as The Fool’s Journey.  

The journey through the major arcana is a metaphor for the journey through life.  Each of the 22 cards (numbered 0-21) represents a point on the journey.  The overall concept is that a person must move through these various stages in life in order to realise their true calling.

The minor arcana cards are divided up into 4 suits - just like playing cards. The suits run from the Ace all the way to the King. Unlike playing cards they have an additional court card - they have a page, knight, queen and king whereas playing cards have only the jack, queen and king. The 4 suits are wands, coins, cups and swords. Debi uses a deck called Tarot of the Old Path which is based on Wiccan traditional symbolism so her readings will reference Cauldrons for Cups, Pentacles for Coins and Rods for Wands. The minor arcana deal more with day to day situations, work, family, relationships, intellect etc. whereas the major arcana concerns itself with major life events in general.

Anyone can learn to read the Tarot. Just like angel cards the Tarot is simply a tool for accessing the knowledge that you already have within you. We are all connected and we all have access to the collective unconscious. The Tarot helps us connect with our intuition to find the answers we are seeking. 

Your question is important - when approaching the Tarot for answers you should avoid questions with yes/no answers. You should ask for insight into situations rather than asking closed questions. For example if you are having problems with your home life or living situation, asking a question such as "What can I do to improve my current living situation" is better than asking "How can I get xxx to move out?" The latter question assumes that the person will move out when in fact the answer to your question may be that you will find somewhere else to live. By asking open questions you greatly improve the reading you will get. You should always work with your Tarot reader to ask the best question so that you get a meaningful response from the cards. Also note that good Tarot readers will help you with this and will also not answer any questions related to games of chance, the lottery or anything for which they are not properly qualified - like financial investments, legal advice or other such matters.
