Also Book of Thoth.

A deck consisting of 78 cards used for fortunetelling. The deck is divided into two seperate groups consisting of 56 and 22 cards respectively. The group consisting of 56 cards is known as the Lesser Arcana and contains 4 suits with 14 cards in each. The other 22 cards, the Greater Arcana, each feature a title and a picture.

Tarot cards are quite popular even to this day with courses available which teach everything about the deck itself and how to use it. Fortune tellers typically utilise the Tarot deck to provide those seeking a glimpse of their own future a taste of what is to come.
