Tourist Tarot Tea Party

Having the Empress over for Tea

Recently I was contacted by an out of town traveler who wanted me to come to the Westin St. Francis hotel and read for her, her mother and her daughter. She told me they were visiting from the Midwest and would only be in town for the weekend. I was happy to relate that I had room in my schedule and so we arranged a time.

Once I arrived at Union Square, I was surprised to find out that the readings were the idea of the woman’s sixteen-year-old daughter. This young woman had found herself interested in Tarot, and upon doing some research, had decided that I was her first choice.

It’s Party Time!

Clownin' Around

Clownin’ around at an Alice in Wonderland themed party!

With the holiday season approaching, I have been reflecting on the fun I have bringing Heroic Tarot to house parties and corporate events. This past October I was impressed by the variety of presentation and panache of the homes and businesses to which I was invited. From the gritty streets of SOMA to the prestigious homes of Pacific Heights, the Bay Area has shown me it certainly knows how to party!

One of the October events for which Heroic Tarot provided readings took place in SOMA at a Halloween party for a tech startup. The party began after the workday ended and all of the employees were dressed up in fantastic costumes. I took it as a very good omen that my first client for the evening was a man dressed as Captain Jean Luc-Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Readings took place in an all glass meeting room and two or three of the employees kept track of the sign up sheet for me, ushering in the appropriate person one after the other. Before their readings, many of my clients expressed that they had never had an experience with Tarot before, and afterward told me that they enjoyed the new perspective the reading gave them. I have found that Tarot and tech mixes quite well as both subjects are systems of information that require some degree of analysis. It is not surprising to me that San Francisco holds space for both magic and science!

The Voyage of Discovery

Voyager Tarot

“The only real voyage consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes; in seeing the universe through the eyes of another, one hundred others–in seeing the hundred universes that each of them sees.” ~Marcel Proust

About five years ago, my friend Sheila Zuni came to see me and asked if I was open to using new Tarot decks. At that time I had won numerous awards for my X-Men Tarot system and it was (and is) a common misconception that that was all I used. Sheila asked me this question while protectively holding something to her heart. I smiled and explained that yes, I used many decks in my Tarot practice and was open to working with more. With a great sigh of relief, my friend gifted me her personal copy of the Voyager Tarot.
