Have a reading done with a local psychic

Leanne Maramma

The Annual Psychic Fair & Witchcraft Expo offers tarot readings along with palmistry, mediumship, and more daily in October (10:00 am-10:00 pm).

On the other end of Essex Street, tarot readings are available at Hex with local psychics Leanne Maramma and Yulia Applewood. Readings are also available at many of Salem’s Witch shops including Enchanted, The Cauldron Black, Omen, 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.

Go on a walking workshop with NOW Age Travel

Learn about the Tarot and conduct a reading as a group with the Tarot Walking Workshop by NOW Age Travel. Part-walking tour and part-hands on tarot workshop, this experience is perfect for those familiar with the Tarot to practice reading others and for beginners to gain an insightful introduction to the cards while learning about Salem’s history. Stops on the tour are based on the cards pulled at the beginning of this 3-hour experience, making each workshop different! Tickets ($65) are available at NOWAgeTravel.com.

Attend Tarot Salon at HausWitch

HausWitch Home + Healing hosts a Tarot Salon monthly. Open to all levels, Tarot Salons are 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 ($12) are available at HausWitchStore.com.

Catch a performance of The Tarot Experience

The Tarot Experience is a live multimedia show performed throughout October at The Witchery. The show features live music, performance art, video, and more all inspired by various themes found throughout the Tarot. Can’t make it to an evening performance?
