Tarot was a type of fortune-telling performed with a special deck of cards, each card holding a meaning. These included:
- The Fool
- The Queen of Cups
- The Hanged Man, signifying someone who would cause trouble
- The Tower, usually struck by lightning, signifying death and destruction
- Death, usually a skeleton holding a scythe and hourglass.
