Please join us on Saturday, February 1st, 2020 at the Lilly Library in Florence, Mass, from 1pm to 3pm for our monthly Mass Tarot meet-up. This month we will be exploring how moon phase energy, when combined with the tarot, can offer us a practice that encourages self evaluation, expression and evolution in all forms. We will explore how the moon encourages our shadow selves to rest and reflect and our brightest light to shine. This session will involve a good deal of writing so you will need a journal; ideally, one that is both a journal and a calendar. I will bring some printed calendars as well for those who want them. Bring any deck that reads you well and that you feel comfortable allowing to guide you. RSVP to email@example.com if you can or on the Massachusetts Tarot Society Facebook group event posting (will go up later this evening). It helps to plan ahead for handouts and other materials. Hope to see you there!
Please join us on Saturday, January 4th, 2020, from 1PM to 3PM for our annual Wheel of the Year tarot reading led by Carolyn Cushing. If you have your WOTY notes from last year, bring them along. This practice is reflective as well as predictive. 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. Weather looks to be just rain, as of right now, hopefully that will not change. In case of a snow event we will post the reschedule plans here. Please bring a comfortable deck to work with, and your tarot journal if you keep one.
Sandra Haynes will share how Tarot archetypes are embedded in the music we love and how putting your playlist on shuffle can be a way to listen (or dance) a tarot reading.
Bring a link to your favorite song, a tarot deck, and earbuds if you have them.
Please come to our next monthly Tarot meeting, this Saturday, November 2, 2019 at Lily Library from 1pm to 3pm, hosted by the wonderful Corinne Sharkey. When you come, bring one or more tarot decks, a show-and-tell item, a suggested reading (if time allows), and feel welcome to describe your show-and-tell item and how it relates to your Tarot practice (in five minutes or less).
This is a repeat of last November’s show-and-tell meeting, but whether you attended then or not, there’s always more to share!!! Last year’s meeting was inspired by the observation that many Tarot readers have other interests that aren’t directly related to Tarot, but that contribute to their interpretation of the cards. You’re welcome to bring something to this meeting to describe in five minutes or less. Share how this interest enriches your view of the world and its possibilities, and how it enhances your insights during a Tarot reading. If time permits, we’ll be happy to try-out a few Tarot spreads that illustrate how a show-and-tell item plays a role in those readings.
Whether you’re new to Tarot, or have enjoyed card-reading for many years, here’s an opportunity to see Tarot (and fellow-readers) in a new way. If you’re not sure what to bring, trust your intuition, bring something you like, and see what happens!

Please Join us on Saturday August 3rd at Lily Library in Florence from 1PM to 3PM for a Mass Tarot Meet-up facilitated by Carolyn Cushing, and co-hosted by Goundings.
This session is inspired by Tarot for Trouble Times’ premise that we
all have a role to play in taking action, facing personal and
collective shadows, and instigating radical change. We’ll get tastes
and tidbits from the healing, Tarot, action, and magical ideas and
processes described in the book, including:
– Engaging our shadows to release power
– Practices for personal healing work, including learning how to do
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
– Directing our focus with collective and personal year cards.
– Finding our unique way of serving inspired by the Tarot’s Knights
Tarot for Trouble Times is by the dynamic duo of Theresa Reed and
Shaheen Miro. MTS’s Carolyn Cushing is honored and delighted to have
contributed the closing piece in the book on Welcoming Justice with
the Tarot Knights.
Lauren from Groundings will be at the library at 12:30 with copies of
the book for sale and some special decks to check out.
Please be reminded that you should ALWAYS bring a tarot deck and have at least a basic understanding of the Tarot before attending Mass Tarot Meetings.

Beginners and experts are welcome, please feel free to bring your notes or journals and a comfortable and colorful reading deck.
