I find that whenever I use the tarot, it seems to be more of an insightful reflection on my own conscious and unconscious state of mind than anything else, with a logical cause/effect of the present state projected into the future.
I don't know exact dates, not even sure when Tarot was created (who is? the historians all say different times, reasons and creators). I take it on the guidance of some friends, see the links below.
Your use of Tarot is how I find it as a divination tool, it tells me where I am and what is likely
if I continue as I am now
. For meditation they are different entirely. I am not an expert on this just a green beginner. I've spoken on other posts about subconciousness and creating suggestions it accepts, one way is symbolism. Symbolism is the language of the subconcious mind, just look at your dreams.
The symbolism in the Tarot cards, originally, was very specific. It was, and is, intended
to evoke a form of conciousness within you. If your interested I highly suggest you visit both sites, particularly BOTA. While the multitude of Tarot decks available today are wonderful for divination and often very beautiful I would debate their usefulness for this form of meditation. B.O.T.A.
