Around 1789, Etteilla was the first to publish a tarot deck particularly meant for occult purposes. Etteilla's tarot had themes relating to ancient Egypt, in keeping with the unfounded notion that such cards were drawn from the Book of Thoth.

Metasymbology of 2 of Clubs, 2 of Diamonds Tarot Meaning + History of Tarot

Tarot refers to any of the decks of cards used in tarot games and fortune-telling. Tarot decks were developed in Italy in the 1430s by adding a fifth suit of 21 artistically designed cards called trionfi ("triumphs") and an odd card named il matto ("the fool") to the previous four-suited pack. (The contemporary joker, which was developed in the late nineteenth century as an unsuited jack in the game of euchre, is not related to the fool.)

Curiosities from History that Shaped Our Modern Deck

Curiosities from History that Shaped Our Modern Deck

Those of us who enjoy personalized playing cards may succumb to the desire to be dismissive and cold toward an uncustomized, specifically a standard, deck of playing cards. You know what I'm talking about: your standard Bicycle rider-back deck, complete with "simple" courts and face cards. The type of deck we've all seen a billion times, to the point where we consider it totally standard, if not dull.

The History of the Standard 52-card Deck of Playing Cards

The History of the Standard 52-card Deck of Playing Cards

This is because most of us have seen and used the modern deck of playing cards. A standard deck of Bicycle rider back playing cards looks very "normal" and "traditional" to us. But to people who lived in the past, a deck like this was not normal at all! The truth is that playing cards have changed a lot since they were first used hundreds of years ago. This is how our modern playing cards came to have a deck of 52 cards with four suits in red and black as well as two Jokers. It took hundreds of years and a lot of travel through many countries to make this happen. In fact, the most important parts of today's deck came from the different cultures and countries that playing cards had to go through in order to get to the present day.

Jack of Spades, King of Diamonds Tarot Meaning + Tarot Mythology

Jack of Spades, King of Diamonds Tarot Meaning + Tarot Mythology

The Empress's title. The Man on the Cross. The Caravan. Judgment. Tarot cards' centuries-old symbology, which combines ancient symbols, religious allegories, and historical events, might appear purposely oblique. Occult activities like card reading, according to outsiders and doubters, have no significance in our modern society. A deeper examination of these microscopic masterpieces reveals that their power is not derived from some magical source, but rather from the capacity of their modest, unchanging pictures to expose our most complicated issues and wants.

Common Playing Card Myths Dispelled

Common Playing Card Myths Dispelled

Court cards are based on actual persons, according to the claim.

The artwork of the court cards in a standard deck of playing cards is deeply rooted in history, and divergence from this recognizable design is regarded a curiosity even today.

But where did this classic style come from? It is frequently said that the figures on our current playing court cards are based on historical people. Some people believe that the four kings in a deck of playing cards symbolize historical leaders Charlemagne, David, Caesar, and Alexander. Is there any validity to this?

6 of Clubs, 6 of Diamonds Tarot Meaning + French-suited Tarot Decks

The pictures of French-suited tarot trumps deviate significantly from the previous Italian-suited style, foregoing Renaissance allegorical elements. French-suited tarot cards are almost exclusively used for card games, with the exception of novelty decks. The first generation of French-suited tarots, which showed depictions of animals on the trumps and were hence known as "Tiertarock" ('Tier' meaning German for "animal"), debuted around 1740. Around 1800, a wider range of decks were manufactured, most of which featured genre art or veduta. Current French-suited tarot decks are available in the following layouts:

5 of Hearts, 5 of Spades  Tarot Meaning + Italo-Portugese-suited Tarot Deck

5 of Hearts, 5 of Spades Tarot Meaning + Italo-Portugese-suited Tarot Deck

Italo-Portugese-suited Tarot Deck + Tarot Meaning of 5 of Hearts and 5 of Spades 

Italo-Portugese-suited Tarot Deck

The Tarocco Siciliano is the only deck that employs the so-called Portuguese suit system, which employs Spanish pips but crosses them in the same way as Italian pips do. Some trumps are unique, such as the lowest trump, Miseria (destitution). It omits the two and three of coins, as well as the digits one to four in clubs, swords, and cups: it therefore has 64 cards, but the ace of coins is not used, as it bears the previous stamp duty. The cards are relatively tiny and do not have a reversible design. 

5 of Hearts

This is the 5 of Hearts from our standard deck of playing cards. The Five of Hearts card in the tarot indicates marriage. It is about the status of the connection rather than the sentiments.

In everything, the Five of Hearts want full and utter fulfillment. There will be no half measures! The problem is that things never seem to work out that way, so the good stuff must be hidden somewhere. Not!

People born with this Card have a tendency to seek, then alter, experiment, and disperse their energies to the wind. When their place in the charts causes them problems, they frequently blame it on their surroundings or affiliations, and they fantasize about moving on to get away from it all. The 5 of Hearts are just so lively, entertaining, and full of spit and vinegar in social situations! Their problems, on the other hand, put a strain on their health and leave them gasping for breath.

Of course, there are those 5 of Hearts who have learnt to accept their situation and make the most of it. The "fortunate" 5 of Hearts are those who benefit from gifts and inheritance!

5 of Spades

This is the 5 of Spades from our standard deck of playing cards. The 5 of spades is a tarot card that represents an unexpected loss. You will face increased chances of accident, theft, or a downturn in financial markets in the following days.

The persons born under the sign of the Spade exude a sense of reliability and inner power. Their heart center is now open and ready to serve you. As soon as they enter a room, you will sense their presence.

The 5 of Spade values work above everything else. Not for the money (though they are eager to spend money to better the lives of individuals they care about), but for the physical delight of being occupied. Along the process, they form enduring friendships. They are highly aware of their bodily requirements and want to be physically involved in all they do, as the spade is.

The Venus effects in their life cause them to be frustrated and disappointed. (women, family, love...) The 5 of Spade's unselfish nurturing abilities aid them in seeing the wider picture and overcoming their romantic failures.

If not directed into an useful outlet, the 5 of Spade has an aggressive kind karma that may lead to physical altercations with males and legal altercations. This same physical energy, on the other hand, offers them incredible stamina and a burning libido.

Despite the fact that the 5 of Spade put their hearts on their sleeves, they are tired of love. They've learned the price of love and relationships through experience, and they take their obligations seriously.

Fun Fact: When it comes to casino card decks, you may notice that they feel a little different. This is due to the fact that they are entirely made of plastic.

This is due to the fact that it allows for greater card-handling time in games like poker before they become fatigued, filthy, and dog-eared. It makes it more difficult for players to cheat and mark cards than paper.

We can only hope that in the modern era, cards are recycled rather than discarded as plastic.
