History of tarot - Part 2 Arthur Edward Waite, a member of the Golden Dawn, published his famous book, "The Pictorial Key to Tarot" and in 1910 Waite commissioned the artist and dramatist Pamela Coleman Smith to create a Tarot deck under his direction. The Waite deck, to this day, has become the most popular and influential Tarot deck. Waite used stories and legends from mythology and symbols of archetypal significance from a variety of occult philosophies, esoteric secrets and wide range of backgrounds in his cards. These include Astrology, Pythagorean numerology, Egyptology, the Hebrew Kabbala Greek mythology, Freemasonry and biblical interpretations. The mystery that Tarot holds is in it's ability to provide who ever is conducting the reading with relevant information that couldn't have been obtained through rational scientific means. To make things even more mysterious, this information is revealed from a seemingly random selection of cards. The correspondence between what seems like a random distribution of Tarot cards and the events in a persons life remains a mystery. However psychoanalyst Carl Jung (1875-1961) first introduced the concept of Synchronicity which holds that events are "meaningful coincidences" if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related. With the proliferation of scientific knowledge, divination in the west fell into ill repute. Modern Tarot readers tend to focus on the use of the cards for self-development and understanding. However, most people who work with the Tarot come to realise that the cards have an uncanny tendency to indicate future events.
