Tarot Cards are an ancient method of foretelling events which may occur in a person's future.The tarot (first known as tarocchi, also tarock and similar names), pronounced /tarov/, is a pack of cards (most commonly numbering seventy-eight), used from the mid fifteenth century in various parts of Europe to play card games such as Italian Tarocchini and French Tarot. From the late 18th century until the present time the Tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.

The tarot has four suits corresponding to the suits of conventional playing cards. Each of these suits has pip cards numbering from ace to ten and four face cards for a total of fourteen cards.

Depending on the game, the Fool may act as the top trump or may be played to avoid following suit
