6 Ways to Experience the Tarot at Salem Haunted Happenings
From daily psychic fairs to live performances, Salem has it all. Discover all the ways you can experience the Tarot this October in Salem below:
Attend an October psychic fair
The Annual Psychic Fair & Witches’ Market offers tarot readings along with palmistry, mediumship, and more daily in October (10:00 am-10:00 pm) inside the Witch City Mall. The fair is part of Festival of the Dead‘s October programming, which also includes annual events like the Official Salem Witches’ Halloween Ball, nightly séances, and more.
Just a short walk from the mall is Crow Haven Corner, Salem’s oldest Witch shop. Crow Haven Corner features Tarot, clairvoyance, palmistry, and more with Lorelei, Salem’s Love Clairvoyant, and a psychic fair of their own staffed by local Salem psychics.
Book a reading with a local psychic
Salem’s first vampyre parlour, Maison Vampyre, offers readings and guided energy clearings with local Vampyre Witches.
Readings are also available at many of Salem’s Witch shops including The Cauldron Black and Artemisia Botanicals. Most readings start at approximately $35, though prices vary by duration and the type of reading. View a complete list of Salem psychics here.
Get a reading at sea with Mahi Cruises
Tarot readings are just one of the complimentary activities available during Mahi Cruises’ Haunted Happenings Harbor Cruise. This 75-minute cruise kicks off September 28 and runs on weekends and select dates through Halloween. In addition to tarot readings, the cruise also includes face-painting, storytelling, spectacular views of Salem, Beverly, and Marblehead, and a full bar including spiked cider and hot coco. Tickets are available at MahiCruises.com.
Attend a Virtual Tarot Salon at HausWitch
HausWitch Home + Healing hosts a Tarot Salon monthly! Currently available virtually, the salons are open to all levels. Tarot Salons provide opportunities to learn more about the Tarot and practice readings in a laid back group setting. During the event, you can learn more about the cards themselves in addition to new spreads and how to read for yourself, groups, and couples. Tickets are available at HausWitchStore.com.
Book a group tarot reading at The Witchery
Grab your family and friends and head to The Witchery for a Group Tarot Reading! Reading as a group allows everyone to use their own deck to look at the meanings behind the cards together. You can also take advantage of reading as a group and help others make connections in their cards. Group Tarot not your thing? The Witchery also offers private readings (advance booking is recommended in October at TheWitcherySalem.com).
Shop for tarot cards and gifts
Many stores around Salem stock tarot cards of all themes and traditions. Pick one up following your reading this October to bring home, or grab a pack to try your hand at reading the cards in your hotel room while you’re here. You can find cards at all of the above Witch shops, plus at Coon’s Card and Gift Shop and Pyramid Books. Find a full list of places to shop in Salem here.
