INTRODUCING TAROT, THE ORIGIN OF THE TAROT CARD
The first Tarot cards have been around since the 1370's, used as playing cards in Europe. These earliest decks were hand painted art works which were expensive and could only be afforded by wealthy patrons. But as demand increased, new and cheaper methods of production were discovered so that playing cards became available for everyone, specially with the start of the printing machines. The Earliest card found in Germany. Handmade deck found in castle Ambras (Tirol) together with Hofmterspiel reprinted by "Edition Leipzig" in 1971 for Heimeran (Munich). The origin of tarot cards is not exactly determinable, but it seems most likely that the early Tarot pointing to Gypsy origin and was an antecedent to the simpler decks of playing cards. One cannot forget to mention the use of tarot cards for the purpose of divination. The first use of cards to tell the future was in 1480's in Germany, and preceeded the Italian tarot. One shuffled a deck of customary playing cards, drew one, and then consulted the book to determine one's fate.
Well, this history of tarot which we know. But this is a false history. If you noticed, tarot cards contain elements, with a symbol of Phoenician writing system, which representing Earth, Fire, Water and Air. Hence there is no way tarot would of originate in those countries, as they had no idea of the elements nor of their meanings.
To understand how Gypsy Card and Tarot derived from the Phoenicians, first we have to clear who were/are the Phoenicians, because there is not much left of their history, culture, lifestyle, where they lived or what they looked like. What we have left with, is their writing, due to Cleopatra recording on the Rosetta stone. Beforehand Phoenician writing system was unknown to the world. It was kept among the Greeks and the Macedonian. All writing system today evolved from Phoenician writing. Reading the Rosetta stone (if you speak Sanskrit) you can understand it, which can only point to one conclusion, the Phoenicians were the original speakers of Sanskrit language.
The word Tarot derived from Sanskrit Taras; i.e. voyage, here it is referring to life as a voyage, and how to continue on your journey in life. The other word is Tara, which is translating to asterism, passage, knowledge, communication between man and the universe, the Veda (means Truth, Science), the sacred text and science of the ancient Phoenicians and they were/are hidden away from the world as Romani people or Gypsies. This ancient knowledge was embedded in Tarot and Gypsy cards. Although most of their knowledge mostly lost, some are hidden, only fragments left for us to learn from.
For example, Adam and Eva are both Sanskrit words, which was Phoenician (Romani, known as Gypsy) in origin. The Phoenicians were also known under the name of Edomites from the Sanskrit word Edhini, meaning Earth. Adam is ADM in Sanskrit, and it is translating to non-matter, which become the card of Lover. Eva was taken from Sanskrit as well, and EVA means creation of matter, and she becomes the card of Sweetheart, a representation of creation, non-matter (ADM) creation of matter (EVA), consequently developing into union, (the card of Wedding in Gypsy Card) which created stars, planets, life and us, represented with the card of House in Gypsy Card and The Magician in Tarot. Front of the Magician we can see four items, four elements, the building blocks that make us who we are. These are Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Other elements also included, such as sound, void which is referring to 0, the card of Fool, and the seventh is 'Akasha'. In Sanskrit your body is called the Temple, the place of worship, hence it is not a building, it is not outside of you, but the Temple is within, it is you. Read more >>>
