San Francisco Tarot Cafe

This gathering of Tarot readers, enthusiasts, professionals, students, and the mildly curious will take place the first and third Tuesday of every month beginning April 6, 2010, at the fabulous Borderlands Cafe, 870 Valencia Street in San Francisco. The Tarot Cafe will run 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. We’ll be in the back of the cafe, with lots of tables and chairs for gathering in twos, threes, fives, etc. to ooh and aah over each other’s decks and do readings.

The Tarot Cafe isn’t a formal class or workshop. It’s an opportunity to meet with others who read the Tarot, talk about cards, practice readings, compare techniques, and enjoy the delightful beverages and delicious food offered by the friendly staff at Borderlands Cafe. We’ll start the evening with a question or topic to get the conversation going, but after that, the only guide is your imagination!

We’re excited about these gatherings, as they will give us all a chance simply to enjoy the Tarot – and the company of fellow Tarot enthusiasts – twice a month. There’s no admission fee; we ask only that you support the cafe by indulging in a coffee, tea, snack plate, or treat. (Or all of the above – why choose?!) Borderlands Cafe offers an extensive selection of teas and coffee drinks, and savory snacks and sweet treats sized for individual consumption, for sharing, or for a complete meal. (My favorite is the Antipasto Plate – yum!)

Borderlands Cafe is at 870 Valencia Street, between 19th and 20th Streets. It’s accessible from BART, Muni lines 14, 33, and 49, and a nice stretch of the legs from Muni lines 22, 48, and J Metro. Street parking is doable within a block or two of Borderlands, since the meters turn off at 6:00 pm.

If you are on the waiting list, you can still show up on the off-chance that someone who said "yes" will be a no-show.

However, if you show up and there are no spaces available because everyone who RSVPed actually showed up, you will not be able to stay and participate.

Seats go first to the people on the Attending list, then to the wait list in order of RSVP.

Anyone who RSVPs "yes" and then is a no-show for any two meetings will be placed on "Wait List Only" status for three months. If this happens, it means any meeting you RSVP for during that three month period will be Wait List only, and your RSVP will be handled with our usual Waiting List process. It's just not fair to the people who are willing to make the time and effort to attend to lose the opportunity to participate because someone else can't get their act together.

Anastasia and Rose have the final say on who is seated. We appreciate that so many people want to attend, but we do have to be considerate guests to our hosts at Borderlands.

Thanks for understanding!

    We did a reading on decision making - an if yes / if no spread. After the break, we did a reading on handing a situation where we feel stuck, examining where we are trying to hard and where we can focus more energy.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
