Free Reading Program to Continue in 2018!

The Capital Tarot Society is pleased to announce that it will continue to provide free readings once a month at Cheesetique in Ballston for all of 2018!

CTS readers will be available at Cheesetique (800 N. Glebe Rd, Arlington VA, not far from the Metro) from 6:30 to 8:30 PM the first Thursday of each month.  If you would like to receive a free, short tarot reading stop by around 6ish, let the host or hostess know you'd like a reading, sit down to grab some wine and delicious cheese, and wait for a member of restaurant staff to come get you for your reading.  It's that easy.

Here are the exact dates:

January 4
February 1
March 1
April 5
May 3
June 7
July 5
August 2
September 6
October 4
November 1
December 6

We look forward to seeing you there!

Bye Bye 2017

This past Saturday CTS had its annual holiday fete.  We did things a little differently this year!  In the past we've typically held our holiday gathering in a bar or restaurant where we normally gather for meetings, but this year one of our members graciously opened up her beautiful home!  It was so nice and cozy that we're considering having more meetings in member homes going forward.

And since it was in a house and not a restaurant, the event necessitated a potluck - and we outdid ourselves.

This was after we all got to it - you should have seen it before!

However we didn't do away with all our holiday traditions!  The annual gift swap went on as always and, as always, was incredible fun.  Members bring used tarot decks and other items like books, crystals, and mystical accessories, and pack them up in a gift bag or box so nobody can see what they're getting until they choose their gift off the communal gift table.  And this year members came with so many extra gifts that we actually all got to choose two gifts from the table, plus handmade pottery that one of our members kindly brings for us every year.  There were also Christmas crackers (the kind that you pull and that make a popping noise and have a gift inside, not the kind you eat) with paper crowns for everyone, folks in holiday dress and even visits from some feline friends.

Light up Channukah sweater, you know that's right.
Round two of presents

The largest tabby any of us has ever seen.

Several CTS members gathered for tarot discussion over treats.

So, from the whole gang, happy holidays and a joyous new year to anyone who is interested in getting their tarot on with us in 2018.  To join in on our fun holiday parties, upcoming awesome events next year like our new years readings in January, and upcoming presentations on topics like the MBTI personality types and court cards or pattern recognition in the RWS deck, check out our "how to join" page at the top.

Sayonara 2017!
