The name “gypsy tarot” is derived from Roma Gypsy people who were nomads, mistreated and discriminated throughout the history.

Roma gypsy has always been associated with fortune telling and magic. Gypsies use two words in their fortune telling tradition, and each has its purpose and meaning.

It contains 36 cards that appear with particular characters in their dress with the landscape, places, and animals.

It is believed that Mademoiselle Lenormand, a famous psychic created and named Gypsy tarot cards. This theory is highly supported by the characters that appear on the card, which is usually in costumes.

Dukkering means something that is spiritual and ghostly, which was derived from Wallaco-Sclavonian word. Bocht is a modification of Persian word that means connected to fate.

The Roma Gypsy brought the gypsy fortune tradition to Europe and created a book called “the book of divination of the gypsies.” Only the ones who understood mysterious symbols can read the book.
