The ancient art of reading tarot cards is a universally popular method of interpreting what's happening in one's life and finding answers to critical personal issues. Tarot for Teens uses examples common to the teen experience to teach how to interpret the cards and apply the oracle to life's timeless themes and challenges: the quest for love, issues of work and career, and the search for spiritual insight and personal growth.

The author offers comprehensive explanations of each card that can be applied to any tarot deck and provides a wide range of sample spreads and exercises. She also explores the tremendous variety of tarot decks available today. Tarot for Teens is filled with possibilities and connections--astrological correspondences, numerological references, mythological explanations, interpretations for cards in both "upright" and "reversed" positions, and practical advice for doing readings--to maximize the fun, potency, and teachings of the tarot.
