the very brief history and evolution of tarot cards
Tarot cards have a rich and storied history that dates back a super long. They were never intended to be used for insight, reflection, or divining. It was originally a way to display art on playing cards in the 15th century - but only for the wealthy who could commission those pieces of tiny artwork (a massive reason why i prefer to design my cards and draw them on tarot card pieces of paper!). However, over time, they evolved into a powerful tool for divination & self-reflection.
Throughout history, tarot cards have undergone numerous transformations, adapting to the changing needs and beliefs of different cultures. From the Marseille Tarot to the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, each iteration of tarot cards has brought its own unique interpretation and understanding of the human experience, plus a snapshot of the ideals and values present in society during the cards creation.
understanding holography and its application in tarot cards
To truly appreciate the allure of holographic tarot, it's essential to understand the underlying technology that brings this gorgeous effect on the cards, the boxes, and the guidebooks, to life. Holography is a technique that creates three-dimensional images by capturing and reproducing the interference patterns of light. It allows for the creation of holograms that appear to have depth and movement, giving them an otherworldly quality.
In the world of tarot, holography has been harnessed to enhance the visual impact of the cards. By incorporating holographic elements, such as shimmering overlays or 3D holograms, into traditional tarot symbolism, holographic tarot decks take the reading experience to a whole new level. The holographic elements add a sense of depth and magic to the cards, making them visually captivating and spiritually evocative.

how holographic tarot cards enhance your reading experience
Holographic tarot cards offer a multi-dimensional reading experience that goes beyond the traditional two-dimensional interpretation. The holographic elements add depth and complexity to the cards, allowing for a more nuanced understanding of their symbolism.
When conducting a holographic tarot reading, the holograms on the cards interact with the light, creating an ever-changing visual display. This dynamic aspect adds an extra layer of insight and interpretation to the reading, as the shifting holographic patterns mirror the ebb and flow of the reader's energy.
The holographic effects also serve as powerful triggers for intuition. As the holograms catch the light and move, they create a sense of movement and energy that resonates with the reader on a subconscious level. This enhances the reader's ability to tap into their intuition and access deeper levels of understanding.
