TACOMA TAROT BABES
Saturday, April 22, 1-4 p.m.
Red Elm Café (in the Community Room), 1114 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Tacoma
Come to the second Tarot Babes meet up at the Red Elm Café. Stop by, stay a while, and connect with people who love, use, or are interested in tarot and oracle cards. Tarot Babes meet-ups are very casual, inclusive events where the focus is on meeting others in the area who share affection for tarot and oracle reading. No matter your experience level or the method(s) you employ to read cards, you are welcome at this event. This event will be inclusive of all religious preferences, racial, cultural identities, sexuality and gender identities. You don’t have to bring anything, but you can bring a deck, your favorite tarot resource book, or anything else that you may want to use to break the ice and help others get to know you. This is a free event, meant for networking and community building; this is not an event where tarot readings are guaranteed to be performed. This event is hosted by Genaviv Rose, of Moondust Darling.
