December Tarot Salon

Come hang with us and talk tarot! Explore the deck in a casual atmosphere where you can learn something new and share your own experiences. We’ll discuss different ways cards can interact and create deeper meaning when they’re pulled together in a spread. There will be plenty of time to practice reading with the support of the group. Bring any tarot deck you’d like or buy one at the bookstore. All experiences welcome.

Each week of this series, you’ll learn a fundamental aspect of tarot – everything from the history of the cards + symbolism, to how to learn + create meaning from all that imagery, to the numerology + astrology of it all.
