Please join us for our monthly meet-up at the Lilly Library in Florence on Saturday, October 1st from 1PM to 3PM for our monthly meet-up. This month we will be doing a little practice reading for each other, in preparation for Halloween Party Season, a tarot reader’s bread & butter! We will start off the session discussing what makes a deck ideal (and not ideal) when reading for others, so please bring a deck or two that you feel are appropriate (bonus points for appropriate AND seasonal!). We will then play around with one of my methods of drawing and reading cards, great for quick reads at parties or to start off longer readings. We will practice first on ourselves, then for each other. Finally, we will share our reactions to the process as a group. Hope to see you there!!
Please join us from 1PM to 3PM on August 6th for our monthly gathering at the Lilly Library. Carolyn has just returned from a full week of teaching at Omega (filling in for Rachel Pollack due to ill health) and has graciously offered to share with us some of the highlights from the experience where she was accompanied by wise women such as Mary Greer, Susie Chang and Jenna Matlin. Please bring a tarot deck, your curiosity and yourself! Hope to see you there!
This month we will be making connections, literally! We are meeting in person, back at our home base, the Lilly Library in Florence from 1pm to 3PM on Saturday, July 2, 2022. Not only will we be connecting with each other, but in this session we will focus on making fun and creative connections to the cards that can inspire us and open doors to help us become even better readers. Please bring a favorite or familiar deck. We will be following the library’s masking policy, should one be in place, so please come prepared.
Saturday, June 4th from 1PM to 3PM we will visit Sandra Haynes in her art studio at Leverett Crafts & Arts (13 Montague Road, Leverett MA) to see her creation process for a mixed media tarot deck she is calling The Discarded Tarot. The deck imagery is deck is built on recycled machine shop inventory filing cards & using discarded books and magazines out of the “Free” boxes found around her town.
If you are planning to attend and are willing to pick up someone else in your area for carpool, or are in need to transportation, please see the Mass Tarot Facebook group thread for this event to coordinate.
This is the Arcadia Pavilion where we will be meeting next Saturday, the 7th, from 1pm to 3pm—in person at last! We’ll be led by the magic of the Fool using the prompts from Nancy Antenucci’s Tarot Rituals. Our divination tools will be our decks (bring your favorite) and the natural world. We’ll be working with the cards and wisdom wanding around the sanctuary. We will gather even if there is light rain. If it is pouring, we will cancel.

Please join us on Saturday, March 5th, 2022 for our monthly Mass Tarot Gathering via Zoom.
Are there cards you wish you could remove from the deck and never see again? Are there cards you dislike because you don’t really understand what they mean? Are there cards that always seem to make you cringe? Our goal in this session will be to find usefulness in the cards nobody loves. We will attempt to find them a purpose and invite them back into our readings. We will cover majors, minors and courts. Please bring your voices, thoughts and ideas on this topic and a deck you are comfortable reading and sharing. This session would be nice for those who are learning tarot as well as experienced readers. The zoom link will be sent to those on our email list as well as posted in the Facebook group.
Please remember to make a $5 donation through PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Please Join us on Saturday, February 5th, 2022 via ZOOM from 1PM to 3PM for a presentation by Aurora Sun.
Reading Tarot Pip Cards: Pip cards such as those found in the Tarot de Marseille can feel intimidating, but working with them can be a great way to build intuition and a deeper understanding of tarot. In this class, we’ll explore numerology, interpreting patterns and imagery, and work together on readings and strategies for understanding 1-10 of the Minor Arcana. Please bring a Tarot deck that has pip cards (such as de Marseille) if you have it. Otherwise a regular set of playing cards will also work fine for this class!
We will share the ZOOM link on our Mass Tarot Facebook page and by email. Please remember to make your donation of $5 to Pay@MassTarot.org if you are a regular attendee of our sessions. . Hope to see you there!
Please join us on Saturday, January 8th from 1PM to 3PM via Zoom, for our annual Wheel of the Year tarot reading led & hosted by Carolyn Cushing. This practice is reflective as well as predictive. If you have your WOTY notes from last year, bring them along. If you do not have your notes or have never done this spread with us, that is fine, too, you will still be able to follow along. If you do have something that can prompt your memory about the happenings of the year (appoitment calendar, picture roll on your phone, that type of thing) do bring it
Please bring a comfortable deck to work with. A large notebook (unlined is best) and/or 4 sheets of 8 1/2 by 11 paper would give you plenty of space for the wheel reflection process. I will have a template for you for the wheel of the year to come.
We will post the Zoom link in the Mass Tarot Facebook group, and attach it to your reminder email. You can also contact Carolyn or Jill by email for it. Carolynn@soulpathsanctuary.com or (Jill) email@example.com. Please do not share it outside of our group.
