The psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung, who has always been interested in their symbology, gave an enlightening interpretation of them, to say the least, by dissecting their deep symbolic meaning.
He defined them as "psychological images, symbols with which we play, as the unconscious seems to play with its contents. They are combined in certain ways, and the different combinations correspond to the joyful development of events in the history of humankind".
Tarot cards could help man through imagesto fix the understanding of the present, in its most elusive, remote, impulsive and unconscious aspects, both individual and collective. Only at this point does it become possible to reflect on the future, only by taking the current state of things in all its innermost complexity.
