The New York City Tarot Meetup Group Message Board › 'Historical Occultism'
New York, NY
During the latter part of the past year, there was a program at the city's 42nd strt library about '19th Century Occultism.' There were half a dozen presenters on the subjects of tarot, table-knocking, tea-leaf reading, scrying, graphology and other phenomenon. They even included the Occultism at the White House during the Civil War era. The group that sponsored this, the NY 19th Century Society are
organizing an Extravaganza during the next few months. And have said that if
somebody would like to have a table there, they could. There's no fee for this. Keep you posted on this. This being tacked on with the Extravaganza three wknds away, to better format this. As we'd like to keep a 19th c historical perspective. So of course, you would use RWS, Marseilles, Etteilla or other 'historical' deck of
tarot. Keep the 3-D Fairie deck for the Pagan fest or Witches Ball. Also, a costume or clothing of that era are a request. Write for particulars, as there may be a tiny fee for the table;. . but as a reader, you may keep what your clients are paying from
this, too. The web page for NYNCS, NY Nineteenth C. Scty has further. Would be wonderful if some of the membs could get to this. Blessed be.
