Tarot Divination For Kids

The art of divination with tarot is an ancient one and until recently people were not really using tarot openly. I learned tarot as a teen and I remember I had to hide it pretty much from anyone 'not in the know' that I was reading cards.

None of us were not telling our friends or family about reading tarot and all was done quite hush-hush. No wonder since tarot was always viewed as something 'bad' that should not be touched (just like a ouija board - which I tried my hands on as well at some point).

These days, these last few years, however, people have started to become more open to tarot. They are learning now that tarot is not only a tool for witches and gypsies to tell the future. It is simply a deck of cards that helps you learn more about yourself, the other people in your life, and it helps you grow spiritually as well.

Of course tarot is still used for divination, but with more and more people getting access to websites full of information about tarot, it becomes less threatening, and more mundane. It becomes something that people finally start to understand.

With this opening to tarot, people have started to teach it to their children as well. But most of the tarot decks have a strong symbolism and strong graphics on them that might not be suitable to such tender ages.

This deck speaks for itself. It is all about the story of Alice in Wonderland. The pictures are a nice modification of the Rider Waite tarot deck (you will see the style of the cards is pretty much the same at first glance), however the characters have been all replaced by the lovely and unforgetable characters that Alice meets in the world below.

This deck is out of print and you can find it sometimes from Amazon sellers. You can also check out Ebay for availability and cheaper prices (check the link below). If you see it cheaper, grab it because it doesn't come up all too often on the market, it's quite sought after.

      Good. It brings them in touch with the old ways. Not everything has a scientific explanation.

      I am quite unsure about the whole idea - if your child is mature enough to get any benefit from playing with tarot cards, than it surely is mature enough to look at an ordinary deck? Interesting items for collectors, though
