About This Quiz

Tarot cards originated as early as the mid-15th century, when they were used across Europe represented by the likes of French tarot, Italian tarocchini and Austrian Königrufen. By the 18th century, fortune tellers used the cards for divination purposes. With divine wisdom and a few flips of the cards, one could learn about anything from their luck in love to the fate of their crops.

The first recorded fortune tellers to utilize tarot cards in their practice were French citizens Jean-Baptiste Alliette in 1783 and Mlle Marie-Anne Adelaide Lenormand in 1776. Lenormand was particularly successful, serving as a cartomancer for elite individuals like Napoleon and Empress Josephine. (One has to imagine that Lenormand pulled Strength, Devil and Suit of Sword cards for Napoleon again and again.) 

While many occult writers trace these traditions all the way back to Kabbalah and ancient Egypt, the supposition lacks the concrete historical documents to back it up. Of course, if you want to know the real truth about tarot's origins, you just might have to ask the cards. 

To find out what's in your cards, all you have to do is answer the following random questions. Afterward, you'll receive a scarily accurate tarot reading that will guide you through the weeks and months ahead.
