What we're about

Austin Tarot Talkers is for Tarot enthusiasts of all levels. Come join us as we study the Tarot in new ways as well as old ways. You can expect laughter and wisdom and sharing.

Remember that you will get out what you put in. You have a new organizer as of 2/16/2010. I hope to carry on in the fine tradition of Tarot Meetups by offering guest speakers, practice spreads, lively discussion and different uses for the Tarot. Tarot: It's not just about divination anymore.

Feel free to suggest a Meetup time and date. Even if I can't make them, I will schedule them. I only ask that you show up for any Meetup you schedule. That's a one strike policy. It's not fair to other members to schedule a meetup and then not A) be there or B) make sure someone else is.

I am the president of the American Tarot Association as well as past editor of the ATA Quarterly journal. I do a monthly podcast as well as a weekly Twitter tarotscope. You can follow me on Twitter if you like I'm @TarotByArwen for my regular account .

So come join the Austin Tarot Talkers Meetup. Let's learn and share together. I don't know about you, but I can always learn something new about the Tarot!

Austin Tarot Talkers

Link visible for attendees

We will meet to learn about Tarot cards. We will discuss reading reversed cards. A good reference for this topic is The Complete Guide to Tarot Reversals by Mary Greer.

We hope to return to in-person meetings soon, but are waiting for Austin Public Libraries to reopen their meeting rooms to the public.

(Be aware that Meetup.com charges us $95 twice a year to host our group on their website. Belonging to and participating in our group is always free, but if you would like to make a donation to help with the Meetup fees you could periodically send me a few dollars on Venmo at @Paul-Smith-313, or message me on Meetup for my mailing address if you would like to send a check. When we were meeting in person, donations were about matching our Meetup.com charges. But since the pandemic I have paid $215.95 more in Meetup charges than has been offset by donations. Thank you!)
