I was at the coffeehouse the other night and got a tarot reading from my girlfriend's sister which told me of things to come.

A friggin' awesome heavy metal band from Finland, formed in the early 80's. The current lineup features Nightwish's Marco Hietala on vocals and Bass, Zachary Hietala on guitars, Pecu Cinnari on drums, Janne Tolsa on the keyboard and more recently, Tommi Salmela on backing vocals.

The worst part about Tarot is, next to no one has heard about them. They are popular in Finland, but it took 20 years to get something of their's to number one on the charts. In the United States and North America in general, forget it. NO ONE will have heard of Tarot. They do not sell their CDs in the States either. Hopefully Marco Hietala's fame in Nightwish will remedy this situation soon.

The tarot (tarock, tarocchi) began in 15th century Italy as a trick taking card game similar to spades. Most English speakers only associate tarot cards with psychics but the use of tarot cards for fortune telling did not begin until the 18th century when occult writers associated the cards with Egypt and Kabbalah. In many European countries tarot cards are still used for real card games while in places such as North America, the tarot has been marketed exclusively as a divination tool, obscuring the tarot's true purpose as a classic card game.
I've played the game of tarot with a French exchange student.
