Twin Cities Tarot Meetup
7:00pm – 8:45pm
Let’s talk tarot! Come to the Twin Cities Tarot Meetup to meet fellow tarot card readers and enthusiasts! At our meetings, we talk about our favorite tarot cards, tarot decks, and tarot books. We share spreads and ideas about interpreting the cards. We talk about the Major Arcana, the Minor Arcana, and the Court Cards — anything and everything to do with Tarot. Whether you are an enthusiastic beginning reader or or an old hand at the cards, we welcome your ideas, your insights, and your inspiration. When you come, be sure to bring your favorite tarot deck — and your tarot journal or notebook — so we can exchange readings, interpretations, and spreads. If you have tarot decks or tarot books you’d like to give away or trade, bring them along, too.

Pagan Night-Out/Meetup
6pm – 9pm
Come for coffee or tea, come for cards, come and knit or stitch, come for craft discussions, come and chill to the best of pagan music playing in the background. This is an informal, semi-structured meetup with occasional theme or movie nights. (Come share your ideas for themes) . Meet new people, catch up with old friends, and most of all, have fun in a space that is more than Pagan-friendly and west of the River, for those who can’t always make it all the way to Coffee Cauldron, or for those who want the option to gather more frequently. Twice a month Eye of Horus will transform the gallery space into a Salon/Coffee Shop, to be hosted by wannabe barristas Jane & Thraicie. Requesting donation to cover the cost of coffee/tea/cookies/space. Event Location: 2717 Lyndale Avenue South in Minneapolis Event TIME Details: 6pm to 9pm (drop in whenever)
