Who doesn't love a good mystery? The origins of tarot cards are just that - a mystery. Some believe they originated in India or China, while others believe they came from Egypt.

Tarot cards in Egypt would have been used for divination, which is the practice of predicting the future. The most popular belief is that tarot cards originated in Europe in the 14th or 15th century.

The first recorded use of tarot cards in Europe was in a game called Triumphs, which was played in Italy in the 15th century. The game was similar to our modern-day game of bridge.

Players would use a deck of tarot cards with trump cards that featured allegorical scenes, and the winner would be the player who had the best hand.

The first tarot decks were hand-painted, and only wealthy people could afford them. The popularity of tarot cards spread, and soon they were being used for divination by people of all social classes.

One thing is for sure - the history of tarot cards is shrouded in intrigue and secrecy. Some say that the tarot was used as a tool by spiritualists and occultists, while others claim that the tarot was used to predict the future. No one really knows for sure where tarot cards came from, but they have been around for centuries and continue to be popular to this day!
