it is believed to have arrived in Europe from the Arab East around the 13th and 14th centuries. It first appeared in the courts of Italy during the Renaissance, but the exact time and place when the tarot was actually created remains unknown to this day. They associated him with gypsies, witches, dark forces and Kabbalah, and underground magical traditions, but also mere superstition. It served as an ordinary card game in its beginnings, and from the beginning it was the subject of opposition from the priest, the church.
The first decks in Europe were painted in the courts of Venice, Florence and Milan. The oldest surviving deck of tarot cards is by the artist Bonifacio Bembo. These were real artistic masterpieces, but little or almost nothing has been preserved since that time. Today we have hundreds of different decks, but always with the same established meaning and interpretation of symbols and numbers on a particular map.
The beginning of the mystery
However, in 1781 A.C. Gebelin, a French priest and expert in mythology, came to the conclusion by examination that the tarot cards were the lost Egyptian Book of Thoth, the book of secrets of a long-vanished civilization. In addition to de Gebelin, Éliphas Lévi began searching for the “key” in the tarot in the 19th century, or, in other words, uncovering a secret that would unite all magical systems and techniques and open the door to interpreting the mystical meanings of each card for personal and general transformation.
The final transformation of the tarot into high occult magic came through the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, whose name is today widely misinterpreted and taken as one pleases. Their goal was to unite complete Western magic, myths and astrology with Kabbalah and to create a unique synthesis.
Top 5 apps
1. Tarot Sampler
What I like most about this application is that it takes the default language of the device where you install it, which means that there is a lot of information available in Spanish, for example, although there is other information that is in English. You also have the option of drawing a card of the day where you can see the comparison between several decks of that card and on the other hand you can do readings including one in free form where you can put the cards as you wish. The only thing that I did not like very much was that in the runs cards came out of many mixed Tarots, not one, although I know that for some this feature can be interesting because that way you can know many decks. Available on both Google Play i Apple App Store.
2. Tarot Cards Reading
If you are looking to spend some time having fun on your phone, you might as well learn something about your future. This app can help you answer the questions that you want answers to and it is really easy to use.

You can opt for yes-no tarot, 3 cards tarot and there are some other options as well, but we will not reveal everything. Furthermore, the design is quite good and the application is simple to use.
3. Golden Thread Tarot
We like this app very much and the good thing is that it also has an application where you can see all the cards and it has a beautiful design. But the good thing about this application is that, in addition to showing what each card means, it also allows you to make several runs, which can keep a detailed record day by day, and you can even rate each roll according to the feeling of it (good or bad) ) and according to some keywords. Something that is more a matter of personal taste but I would like it to be changed is that many inverted cards come out, I think they come out many more times than with a deck Tarot physics, but again, it is more a matter of personal taste.
4. Kawaii tarot
This application is similar to the previous one because it is also created from a physical deck, one that I really loved for its simplicity and tenderness. With it you can also make different types of print runs, you can even get the Celtic cross and other more advanced print runs in different areas, there are also small texts with the meaning of the letters and if you register you can keep a diary of the print runs make. Among the things that I did not like so much are that like the previous application, it is only available in English, which can be a problem for some, the other is that it is not updated with the cards of the minor arcana of the latest version of the deck in which they are more elaborate and it is not only the symbol of the arcane and the number. And lastly it is only available for Apple products, not Android.
