Understanding the Tarot de Marseille
The Tarot de Marseille is a pack of cards with 78 arcana, including 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana. Taromancers generally use Besançon tarot or Boulogne tarot for divination by playing cards. There are also those who use Piedmontese tarot. The fortune-tellers prefer tarot cards to Latin signs for predictions. During a session, the fortune teller invites his client to draw cards.

The tarology practised by fortune tellers
Tarology is part of what professionals call intuitive clairvoyance or clairvoyance requiring the use of a particular medium.

The fortune-teller’s predictions are information not perceptible by simple sensory faculties. Clearly, it takes a special gift to be a fortune teller. This professional sees the future, the past or both at the same time according to the particularities of his clairvoyance. Maps are used to make these visions precise and intelligible.
Tarology by a novice
Many people want to be able to interpret the messages of the Tarot de Marseille by themselves during a card draw. If the gift of clairvoyance is not given to everyone, it is always possible to follow mantic or divinatory art courses under the guidance of a competent clairvoyant. The aim here is to learn the principles of the Tarot de Marseille applied to clairvoyance, the particularities of each arcana composing this deck of cards, the different types of cards to be drawn. There is also the possibility to learn how to interpret the cards for each draw. It should not be forgotten, however, that the essential part which is the basis of tarology is the extrasensory capacity. The part of rationality concerning the knowledge of the arcana and the interpretation of the prints is minimal.
