Tarot is the most famous and probably the most popular method of foreboding for centuries. Today, the oldest existing preserved tarot deck is considered to be the one from 1450, which belongs to the Visconti-Sforza deck of cards. Since the very beginning of these cards, various versions and performances have existed to this day. According to personal preferences, the prowler should choose the deck that best suits him.
Deck consists of 78 cards divided into two groups – the Great Arcana with 22 cards and the Little Arcana with 56 cards. Small arcanas are divided into four groups that represent four basic elements of the witch-like belief: coins (representing the earth), bowls (representing water), rods (which represent fire) and swords (which represent air). In each of these groups ten cards plus four cards representing the king, queen, knight.
Some of the Occultists consider that only the cards of the Great Arcana are those that propagate fate, while other Arcanas are actually playing cards. It is believed that they originate from ancient Egypt, most likely from the last days of ancient Egyptian culture. The Egyptians, who had plenty to lay on prophecy, entrusted their great knowledge to the sages who stored it in the symbolism of tarot cards.
Although many authors have for several centuries printed their own tarot visions, each of them considers itself closer to the original idea. In our near past, the most mysterious deck are the tarot cards of Aleister Crowley to whom many attribute magical qualities.
Etteila embarked on a theory of the connection between tarot and kabala. Kabbalah is a mystical system based on Jewish doctrines, but includes elements of gnosticism, neoplatonism, and oriental mysticism; learning leading to unity with God.
A parallel between the tarot and the Bible, and various mythologies and learning of various cultures was made by Gerrard Encausse. His works have influenced the works of Oswald Wirth, one of the most important Occultists of the last century.
With the establishment of the hermetic association Golden Dawn, the tarot becomes extremely appreciated and popular. The Golden Dawn was an association whose creator was William Robert Woodman, who was a passionate supporter of Kabbalistic magic learning. They had their particular rituals that they had managed to keep secret for a long time. Golden Dawn paid great attention to the magical way of achieving self-improvement. Members of the Golden Dawn, in the spirit of the connection between tarot and kabbalah, change the places of the maps of the Great Arcana by placing the map of the Luda in the starting place instead of the end, as it was by then substituting the place of the Shepherds and Justice maps.
On the basis of the decks of the then formed, most of today’s tarot decks are based, in particular Crowley’s cave and the cave of Morgan-Greer. But they all were created on the basis of three basic decks, representing only variations on the topic. The basis of all the decks is the same, and therefore it depends on the individual who will choose, according to their own preferences, while giving the individual the ability to select multiple decks, each of which corresponds to another aspect of life.
Some occultists used to take the era of ancient Egypt or the old Kabbalist learning as the time of the Tarot cards, but the appearance of the cards with the classic tarot symbols can certainly not be traced back to the 18th century.
The first tarot cards appeared in Italy in the middle of the 15th century, while their use for occult purposes was first recorded in the 16th century. The widespread use of tarot cards among occultists has only begun since the end of the 18th century.
There is little known about tarot history, there are actually several theories. The first purpose of tarot cards was to play, which was widespread in French courts. By the end of the 15th century, gypsies with these maps prophesied their destiny, traveling all over Europe. So these maps began to spread everywhere in the world. Since the tarot can say a lot with its powerful symbolism, it is no wonder that it is quickly accepted and developed so much.
Meaning of The Tarot Card King of Cups
On the Tarot card “King of the Cups” you see a noble ruler sitting on a solid stone throne. But this ruler’s seat is in the middle of the stormy waves of the sea! The water is an ancient symbol of the often troubled world of our emotions and subconscious emotions.

The sea is the cradle of all life; but its depths are simply unfathomable to us humans. Correspondingly, sailors used to expect the most bizarre marine monsters in the past, which could suddenly appear during the journey and spread fear and terror.
Symbolically, such monsters represent our subconscious or unconscious urges and needs that we humans experience as completely irrational and therefore anything but dodgy. But they are there, and we must learn to handle our own abysses with confidence.
How close the king is inwardly to the fish, to the world of pure instincts and instincts, hints at his flaky shoes. The golden fish on his necklace, however, signals that he lives out these primal forces in a purified and valuable manner.
