The Tarot Tarts are a small group of exceptional women who have studied the Tarot. They gather every month under the guidance of their teacher and mentor, Sheri Fisher, to explore their intuitive powers through the use of the Tarot.
The earliest record of a deck of cards carrying tarot symbology can be traced back to Northern Italy, where for the first few centuries they were used as a parlor diversion called "Cartes de Trionfi." According to tarot historians Ronald Decker, Thierry Depaulis and Michael Dummett (A WICKED PACK OF CARDS), the earliest surviving set of tarot cards is the few remaining hand-painted cards created in approximately 1441 for the court of Filippo Maria Visconti, Duke of Milan. A hundred years prior to this, packs of 52 playing cards bearing the suit symbols of Cups, Coins, Swords and Polo-Sticks could be found in Islamic countries, from whence they migrated into Europe via the British. It was only with the addition of the 22 trump cards sometime after the 18th Century that the pack came to resemble what we now recognize as the modern Tarot deck.
