If you know little or nothing about Tarot, one of the best ways to intuitively connect to the cards is just to start doing readings -- preferably with a Rider Waite deck or other similar deck. On the other hand, it doesn't matter how much you know about the Tarot or about the esoteric/Kabbalistic attributions of the Waite deck or any other deck if you don't do readings. Practice makes perfect. If you have a favorite deck that you already work with, bring it along. I always like to see other decks. I'll also bring some extra Universal Waite/Rider Waite decks with me.
Please note the location change to Herald Square Market. This restaurant/deli has everything from a self-serve salad bar with hot and cold entrees, to a coffee bar, wraps, sandwiches, baked paninis, Asian Fusion, and homemade soups. We will be seated upstairs -- where I can move tables so that the group can all sit together. As this location is open 24/7 we don't need to worry about a closing time. Just purchase a food item, drink, etc. and come upstairs. From 7pm to 8pm, we will eat and talk about Tarot. We will then practice reading Tarot from 8pm to 10pm.
