The tarot was originally a playing card deck (used for card games such as Italian tarocchini) that incidentally began to be used for divination. It is believed that is was first used for this purpose in Northern Italy over 500 years ago. European cults and mystics bought it out into the public around the time of the European Renaissance.
The catholic church rulership deemed tarot and divination a form of witchcraft and many readers were killed and or tortured for using tarot cards for psychic or fortune telling purposes. This created a fear of tarot and divination among the masses and tarots became a thing of evilness and fear for a long time in human psychy.
The demise of the Catholic ruling due to Darwinism and the scientific revolution has allowed tarot to come back, as science has evolved through the study of physics and metaphysical research.Today, as we live in the technology revolution it is so accessible on the internet and beyond as s the age of spiritually is realised.

Divination software (free tarot card reading) has become popular and is a fun and easy way to get answers. I would not use these tools as a serious directive. However, I do feel if they are treated as entertainment and fun they can be rewarding and give a basic initiation and understanding of tarot and the tarot card meanings.
With tarot it is always good to remember it is just a tool to connect with energy or the higher self which we are all connected to. It is not an evil or even a fearsome tool. Everyone is connected all things and all people. Look at is as connecting to a greater energy field that we rarely consciously refer to but is available to all of us at all times as we are each in and of it.
Can Tarot predict future events?
Tarot will always tell you what you need to know. It usually shows past actions/situations/images, current consequnces and future occurances/events based on the prior and/or current directions/situations surrounding you. It is not limited to this. But, often this is how it works to guide you – as this is the simplest method for us to understand sufficintly what it is trying to convey.
Reading tarot will pick up energies that have and are forming and the natural progress of these energies as they move into the future. However, ALWAYS, free will can effect your future. Generally if I see something specific happen in a reading it eventualises in the persons life. The small amounts of time this has not happened, the person has changed the course of action by advise and guidance that has come up in the reading.
It may be that the Tarot cards will not forecast your future. Your future is not alway set in stone. Depending on the choices and decisions you make. it is possible to change a probable outcome or future event. A Tarot reading can help you with these decisions and choices, it can show hidden agendas and solutions that may have been previously overlooked. A reading can reveal aspects of the problem not seen before and enhance problem solving posibilities.
