Tarot cards have been around since the mid 15th century. Initially used as playing cards, they became divination tools in the late 18th Century, and were subsequently picked up by occultists who drew symbols and meaning from Christianity, Judaism and Astrology at the turn of the 20th century. This saw the creation of the most popular Rider Waite Tarot Deck, illustrated by Pamela Coleman Smith. In the 1970's and 80's, film and popular culture embraced tarot reading and today, they are widely used and accepted as divination tools, playing cards, as well as self psychology tools. I believe the tarot is a powerful self-reflective tool, communicating that which is sub/unconscious and by interacting with them, we have the capacity to learn more about ourselves and bring about the change we want to see in our lives.
