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!
