Tarot is central to the philosophies of the New Age. If you look in any of the numerous popular books about tarot, you will read that ancient Egyptians encoded their secrets into these mysterious cards when they were threatened by brutal invaders. Yet others say that tarot were invented by the Gypsies, then thought to be Egyptians. Alas, neither of these theories are true!
