Tarot cards are an ancient divination tool in the West. They have been popular in Europe since the Middle Ages and are equivalent to China's "Book of Changes". Its origin has always been a mystery. There are 78 Tarot cards in total, including 22 Major Arcana cards, which are used to explain the general fortune of fate, and 56 Minor Arcana cards, which can predict more detailed situations to make up for the shortcomings of the former.

The origin of this ancient divination tool has always been a mysterious legend, and many experts in occult studies are trying to find some clues. Some say it comes from Egypt, which means "holy journey" and "god of wisdom and magic" in Egyptian. It is said that it comes from ancient Rome. In Latin, Rotr means "wheel of life". Some say it comes from Hebrew. In Jewish, Tarah means "law". It is said that it comes from Persia. The Gypsy word Tar means "playing cards". It is the Gypsies who introduced the word "Tarot" to Europe. It is said that it comes from ancient India. The Indian gods hold certain symbols of the Tarot cards in their hands, such as cups, authority, swords and rings. It is said to come from China, originating from the bamboo sticks in Chinese speculation ceremonies and the "leaf play" playing cards in the Tang Dynasty. It is said that the playing cards were used for entertainment by the wives and concubines of the palace.

▼Ancient Egyptian Theory

The word Tarot is taken from the Egyptian words tar (Tao) and Ro (King), which means "King's Way". Therefore, "Tarot" itself refers to the correct decision-making ability that a king should have. This is also the origin of this divination method. Originally, "Tarot" was not used for divination in the form of cards, but originated from the "Book of Tarot" in ancient Egypt. "Taota" is the Egyptian moon god and the god of culture and education. "The Book of Gautha" is a mysterious book specially used to convey the will of the god. The pharaohs made various decisions based on it. When the Egyptian dynasty was destroyed, in order to prevent foreigners from getting this book, they painted it on a card and gave it to the priests. Later, it was introduced to Europe through the hands of Alexander, and the current Tarot cards were formed in the Middle Ages. One theory is that after the destruction of Alexandria in Egypt, the Moroccan city of Fez became a new world academic center. Scholars from all over the world gathered here. Unfortunately, they did not have a common language and writing, so they prepared a book full of mysterious symbols. The picture album used pictures to replace language and words. Later, these pictures evolved into playing cards for games. However, this statement is too difficult to believe and has no factual basis. In addition, Thoth (someone translated as "Egyptian Moon God") is one of the many gods of the ancient Egyptians. He is in charge of wisdom and magic. He is also the inventor of numbers. Some people believe that he invented the twenty-two Major Arcana cards in the Tarot as one of the rituals of Egyptian wizards. But this statement also has little basis. Tarot card experts who believe that Tarot cards originated in Egypt all believe that Egypt must have relevant documentation. However, in 1799, Napoleon's army discoveredA clay tablet engraved with ancient Egyptian writing. This clay tablet did not record any information about Tarot, and even other Egyptian documents did not find any records about Tarot cards. This is indeed a frustrating thing for Egyptology believers. But whether these statements are right or wrong, it is undeniable that many Tarot card symbols originated from ancient Egypt.

▼Italian Theory

According to research by historians, as early as the fourteenth century, nobles from various European countries were already playing Tarot cards, during which the Holy See banned Tarot cards. , characterizing it as an atlas of the devil and a pagan object. In addition, the earliest tarot cards known to modern times appeared in Italy in the late 14th and early 15th centuries. The Italian poker game "tarocci" has a similar pronunciation to the "tarot" Tarot cards, and there are only twenty-two cards, which are similar to the twenty-two main cards of the Tarot (Major Arcana). At the same time, Italian poetry The meanings of love, victory, kindness, death, reputation, destiny and future sung in it are similar to those of Tarot cards. Therefore, the idea that Tarot cards originated in Italy has been agreed by many people. However, many scholars who study Tarot cards believe that this evidence only shows that Tarot cards once appeared in Europe, and do not believe that Tarot cards originated in Europe.

▼Gypsy theory

Scholars who study tarot cards believe that tarot cards were most likely brought to Europe by Gypsies from Asia or Africa. They make a living by divination. Luo cards are one of their divination methods. However, the Gypsies are a wandering nomadic people. Is it possible for them to develop a very systematic Tarot philosophy? Tarot may not be a product of Gypsies, they just learned it from other civilizations.

▼Jewish Theory

After a series of studies, experts have found that Tarot cards are closely related to the Kabbala of the ancient Hebrews. This statement can be said to be relatively reliable. Kabbala is an ancient Jewish philosophy. According to legend, it is a knowledge taught by God to Moses (or "Moses") to cooperate with each other and enhance spiritual power. The twenty-two Major Arcana cards of the Tarot have a profound relationship with the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet and the kabbala. Some people have compiled a comparison table between the Tarot cards and the ancient Hebrew letters. In recent decades, they have Research on tarot cards has shown that the argument that tarot cards originated from ancient Jews is highly credible. To sum up the above statement, the origin of Tarot cards is roughly as follows: First of all, the Major Arcana of Tarot cards originated from the Kabbaka of the ancient Jews. Since the ancient Jews had frequent contact with the ancient Egyptians, they also absorbed a lot of Egyptian religion. symbol. With the frequent wars in the Middle East, the predecessors of Tarot cards almost disappeared. Later, the Gypsies somehow learned to use Tarot cards, but I believe they did not seem to understand the philosophical aspects of Tarot cards very well. They used them as a divination tool. From the 12th to the 14th century, Tarot cards were introduced to Europe and became popular in the Western Middle Ages. Traces of them can be found in many pictures and books at that time. Whether they are royal nobles or common people, Tarot cards are everywhere. oneUntil the rise of the church, Tarot cards were regarded as pagan mystical magic and have been suppressed ever since. Under the protection of caring people, Tarot cards still survive and show their mysterious atmosphere in front of the world. After the power of the church weakened, Tarot cards could be developed again, and new Tarot cards were launched one after another. Especially at the end of the 19th century, after researchers linked the Tarot cards to the scroll artifacts of the ancient Jewish esoteric religion, the popularity of the Tarot cards began to rise. Research has become more systematic, and Rider Tarot is one of the representatives.

▼Chinese Theory

Because paper is one of the four great inventions of China, the earliest playing cards were also invented by the Chinese. Archaeologists have discovered scenes of card games in paintings of the Tang Dynasty, and preserved historical documents record that there was a card game called "Yi Zi Xi" in the ancient Chinese court. Many scholars believe that "Ye Zi Opera" must have its own special cultural background. Otherwise, it would be impossible for a simple entertainment game to be developed and popularized in the Chinese court that attached great importance to cultural etiquette. Moreover, Tarot philosophy is very similar to the simple dialectical method in ancient China. The upright and reverse positions of Tarot are very similar to "good fortune and misfortune depend on each other." Some experts also pointed out that there is a lack of evidence that Tarot cards originated in China, but which other theories about the origin of Tarot cards lack conclusive evidence?

▼Ancient Indian Theory

Tarot cards originated in ancient India mainly based on the Minor Arcana card. The sword, pentacle, scepter, Holy Grail and India appear in the card. The magical weapons held by the statues are very similar. Some of the symbolic things in Tarot cards have similar meanings to the magical objects in Indian religion. This statement lacks a theoretical basis and is somewhat like "blind men touching the elephant". However, it has no shortage of supporters and has become a member of the debate over the origin of Tarot cards.
