I love tarot; I love people; I love beer. Voila! Taproom Tarot is born. It’s thrilling really: going out into the community, no idea whom I’ll meet, what the cards will say, how people will react. It’s a lot like doing stand up comedy - which I sometimes do as well - but I don’t have a 10 minute set to rely on here. It’s all in the moment and unrehearsed which maybe could be terrifying, except I rest in the fact that I don’t have to make anything happen. This isn’t about me. No, I just have to be present, tune in, and allow the Source energy (non-localized intellingence) to flow through the cards.
The best part about the whole thing is when a stranger sits down at the table - maybe hopeful, maybe skeptical - and we lock eyes for a hot second and both think, “What is going to happen? What if it doesn’t work?” And then… it just does. I don’t have the language for how. Answers, clarity, support - it all just shows up and does what it has to do. And I know what to say, and the people change a little right in front of me somehow; they soften or perk up. And we both realize none of us are alone in this thing, and the great mystery that surrounds us can be pierced. The great mystery is accessible to us; hell, it IS us.
Mini readings are $11 and 25% of every event goes to local non profits - Father Fred, The Goodwill Inn, etc. I do this because it feels good - to me, to the public, to the business owners. I’m accessing the energy of community to play, and some of that energy should go back into itself in a loving way. May the circle be unbroken.
