Tarot 102: Wheel of the Year Spread

Join us for the latest installment of our very popular Tarot programming series. Designed to help you Spark Your Year, this workshop will introduce the “Wheel of the Year” Tarot spread. Inspired by the Pagan calendric system, “The Wheel of the Year” uses the symbolism of the passing seasons and corresponding festivals (which even non-Pagans will recognize) to help us reflect on our year and plan for the next one!  We will conduct full readings for ourselves and work together seeking guidance on love and relationships, finance and career, health and spiritual matters in the new year. Bring your Tarot Deck and Journal to write in!

This program is for adult 18 and older. Registration is required.
