Tarosophy Tarot Association
The Tarot Association believes that tarot is a wisdom tool—tarosophy—to engage life, not escape it. They teach methods of tarot for people to divine their lives and make their way better through them.
According to their viewpoint, the tarot is not just a deck of 78 cards; it is a real place—a place where the mind meets the mysteries and the imagination floats over the landscape of time itself, gaining insight into past, present and future. It is into this magical place that students and teachers of tarot travel together, using the cards as the map and compass.
The tarot cards themselves originated in Italy in the late 15th century, and were used for fortune-telling as well as card games. There are now more than a thousand different decks in publication, and their popularity is growing on a daily basis.
