Many teenagers, especially females, have an interest in the occult and long to pick up a deck of tarot cards to divine the future for themselves and their friends during sleepovers, parties, etc. However, for beginners, the tarot can often be mysterious and confusing, but not anymore!
While sadly out of print, Kathleen Olmstead’s The Girl’s Guide to Tarot was one of the best handbooks out there. She broke down the symbolism of each of the 78 cards in a way that made sense and gave explanations that would appeal to a young teenage girl. Although Olmstead uses the traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck in the book, nonetheless, she urges her young female readers to research different cards until they find a deck they like. She advises them on how to pick the right deck, setting the mood for readings, should they want to show off to their friends, and how to store the cards as well.
