Wisdom Cards are based upon the tarot. The tarot is a deck of cards mainly used for personal insight. The origin of tarot cards is uncertain; they were perhaps introduced into Europe by Crusaders between 1095 and 1270 or by gypsies, and are known to have been in use in Italy in the early 14th century.
A full tarot deck consists of 78 cards: the minor arcana (56 suit cards) and the major arcana, also known as trumps (22 pictorial symbol cards). The minor arcana, somewhat like a deck of modern playing cards, consists of suits of wands (clubs), cups (hearts), swords (spades), and pentacles (diamonds). Each suit contains 14 cards: 4 court cards (king, queen, knight, and page) plus cards numbered from ace to ten.
The major arcana (wisdom cards) consists of pictorial cards numbered from 0 to 21. Many of the earliest tarot decks were designed by artists, such as the German, Albrecht Durer, who lived during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The pictures, representing such subjects as the sun, death, the devil and a hanged man, symbolize natural forces and human virtues and vices. Insights are gained by interpreting the combinations formed as the cards are dealt out.
