Tarot Card Readings are another popular service that we offer at Elizabeth Rose.
The origins of the tarot are lost in the mist of time. We do know they existed hundreds of years ago and originally slate or stone was used to depict the seventy eight cards. Some felt the tarot originated in China and others felt it was Egypt.
When cardboard was invented, the Tarot was soon depicted using that media, similar to modern day tarot cards. Only the Courtiers were allowed to use them at firsthand. They often depicted their own family as the characters of the tarot.
The church tried to ban the Tarot but in spite of this, it eventually spread across Europe and into France and eventually into the U.K.
The cards are shuffled and dealt out into different patterns, these are called spreads. They have different names, for instance the Calendar spread will tell you your future year ahead. The cards are dealt out forming a circle starting at nine o’clock and going anti clockwise, there is one card for each month and the thirteen card goes in the middle. This middle card is quite important as it is the summing of the next twelve months.
At Elizabeth Rose however we will tailor your reading depending what type of reading you want. The type of tarot card reading that you want will mean a change in the spread that is used.
During the Tarot reading, you can ask the Tarot specific questions and Elizabeth will interpret the answer using her psychic ability.

Tarot Cards have been used since the late 14th Century and believe to have originated in Egypt. However, their first use was documented in Northern Italy. Initially, Tarot Cards were hand painted and this was extremely time consuming. Therefore, the initial amount of decks in circulation was very small. With the advent of printing presses, the Tarot Cards were then mass produced and their popularity soared.
Tarot cards were originally used for playing games, much like a standard card deck we all use today. Each Tarot Card has a drawing or picture and a reader and this is deemed to be relevant to the person it dealt to. An experienced Tarot Card reader will be able to impart information given from the cards to pass on to their client.
Different Tarot Card decks
The most popular Tarot Card Deck used today is the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. That being said, all readers find their own deck through years of research and find a deck that they are drawn to. They then practise their skills and look after their deck with as much devotion as they would give a family member!
Tarot Cards are drawn out and made into a ‘spread’. There are various spreads available for readers to draw upon, for example, the Celtic Cross spread is extremely popular and used by many Tarot Card readers.
