Tarot vs Baralho Cigano | Best Review

So today I’m going to look at the differences between the Baralho Cigano and the Tarot. I have a Tarot Card deck that I got from the UK, and a Baralho Cigano deck that I got from Brazil. The Baralho Cigano deck is the older, original deck, and the Tarot is the more recent and popular deck, so I’m going to focus on the differences.

Tarot and Baralho Cigano are both considered by their fans to be highly accurate in providing guidance. They are both complex systems that are fairly easy to learn for the dedicated seeker. Really the only difference is that tarot was invented by humans with the intent to provide guidance, whereas Baralho Cigano is a much more primal tool that is merely designed to channel the will of the divine.

Tarot is a set of playing cards used for divination purposes. In ancient times tarot was used as card games; later it started to be used for divination purposes since then it is now used for occult purposes. A tarot deck contains 78 cards. These 78 cards are divided into your group’s major arcana and minor arcana.

Major Arcana contains 22 cards where big things are discussed and minor arcana contains 56 cards. These 56 cards have four suits and each suit has 14 cards which altogether make 56. Minor Arcana are related to the daily activities of our life.

If you’re interested in reading the Tarot, check out my recommended books on the subject, which I have reviewed on this blog.


In conclusion, I would say that for most people, it won’t be hard to pick Tarot or Baralho Cigano. For folk who have been practicing the art of Tarot for a few years, or have done a lot of Tarot readings, it is likely that they will have a preference for one of the decks, and I can’t see why that wouldn’t be the same for Celtic Cross. For those who are new to Tarot, it might be a better option.
