At a loved one’s place, his kids, aged 12 and 8, saw my Tarot de Marseilles on the table and were instantly fascinated by the colours, patterns, and characters. They asked a few questions and what the cards might mean with regard to those questions. It opened up a short, lovely conversation and everyone enjoyed themselves. When the 12-year old boy asked if they’re cards to help us figure out our future, I responded that they’re cards for learning about ourselves right now so we can create a better future. The 8-year old girl loved that the Ace of Cups could mean “new friends”, because it affirmed that the connections she’s making in her new school are good. Using tarot cards for games, stories, and processes with children is a great way to plant positive images and life-affirming ideas in their lives. Keep it simple and fun!
