Roost Books and Fig+Yarrow invite you to celebrate Colorado's own tarot deck, The Fountain Tarot, this Friday the 13th. Come join a happy hour of free tarot readings and complimentary drinks and small bites in the Fig & Yarrow Apothecary space.
The creators, Jonathan Saiz, Jason Gruhl and Andi Todaro, set out on a year-long retreat in Todos Santos, Mexico to build a new kind of tarot deck. They spent their time researching the history of tarot, writing a comprehensive instructional guidebook, hand painting 79 silver-gilded cards and designing a holographic package. The resulting deck and guidebook, which were originally funded through their Kickstarter campaign, builds on the rich legacy of tarot, while also re-envisioning it for contemporary lives. The images of the cards and their meanings have been updated for the modern, creative reader.
The Fountain Tarot takes tarot out of the realm of the supernatural and into the magic of the everyday. The beauty of the cards and the insight of the guidebook should inspire your daily ritual, creative endeavor, or wellness routine. Pick a card before your meditation practice or yoga class, do a reading before your daily self-care regimen, use a card as inspiration before writing or during a gathering with friends. The Fountain Tarot is a flexible tool to dive deeper into connection and discovery.
Copies of the deck will be available for sale at the event. [Organizer's description]
