About the event
A monthly meet up to talk about the Tarot held the first Wednesday of each month beginning December 5th from 7-9PM. All are welcome and no experience necessary! At our first meeting I’ll share an overview of the history of the cards and summarize the bones of the Tarot: the Fool card, the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana and the Court cards. Facilitated by Liane. Free mini-zine included. $5 for the evening.
If you’re new to the Tarot, my favorite explanation of what it’s about comes from the makers of the Mesquite Tarot deck and guide book and is quoted below:
Tarot is a practice of seeking clarity, of setting aside time for introspection and reflection. As in other meditative practices, it can give us perspective on the big things and the little things. It carves space to zoom out and gather insight that can assist us in making decisions that are rationally, emotionally, and spiritually intelligent.
Tarot sometimes has a reputation for being about divination or future-telling. To us it’s more about using the power of symbols to bring ourselves into a clearer state of conscious awareness. The 78 cards in a deck represent the range of human experience, archetypes, personalities. They allow us to project our self and our experience onto ideas that have a universal quality, a history that crosses culture and time.
If we can better understand our own motivations, the light and dark within each of us, we can let go of fear. We can better understand others and begin to create healing in the larger world. Right now feels like an important time to do that.
