One Year Anniversary!
We started e-mailing out a newsletter, which eventually was named the Tarocks Tribune. These newsletters were extensive from the beginning, so we decided to make them more accessibly by sharing them here. This is our third. To read them all, click on the Tribune category near the top of our blog page.
Greetings! We are happy to present you with the third Tarocks newsletter.
First of all, we thank you for visiting our pages and signing up with us. We truly hope that you will enjoy the images and the descriptions of the decks shown on Tarocks.
If while reading this newsletter you think of someone in your life who loves cards as much as we do, feel free to forward them this e-mail or share this link with them.
Before continuing with the usual business, we are very proud to announce that Tarocks has now been online for a full year!
In the past year we have received many wonderful reactions and also some helpful suggestions, for which we are very thankful. We always do out utmost to include them in the ongoing development of Tarocks.
One of the suggestions concerned the unavailability of prices. Hmmmm, well, the reason for that is that we just can't part with the decks in our collection...But we do understand. We also know, that in oder to fine tune any collection, it is necessary to trade.
So, here it is: We will start adding prices to the decks that are for sale. A list of these decks, including their prices, will be displayed on a new page, which will come online January 1st. What a way to start the new year! The name of this page will be: SHOP. You will find it in the Menu on the day we launch it.
It is also important to note, that not all decks on the SHOP page will have received the extensive photography and description that you can find for many decks in our BLOG. If this is the case and you want more details, just let us know through our contact form. We can send you photos and additional descriptions upon your request.
November 4th, 2018, we hosted our first Tarocks Tour and it was a great success! The tour took about 1.5 hours during which a lecture was held on the history of tarot and many of our antique and rare decks were shown on location at our store Fabula Rosa in Amsterdam. A spontaneous tarot reading snuck its way into the tour as well.
We already received several requests for more tours, so we have added the 'Tarocks Tour' to our regular program. We offer it for max. 4 people at a time and the price is EUR 30 per person. Right now it is available on request only. Just e-mail us!
In January we will add a more detailed Tarocks Tour page to our website.
In addition, Pipaluk Universe has expanded her inspirational work as a coach to also offering Alchemical Tarot Rituals of Transformation. During the rituals it became clear that the energies invoked can be of great support in better understanding and working with the tarot cards - a great combination with Tarocks!

After all this information, we must not forget to mention which novelties have arrived in our collection and store. Here are some:

We are constantly extending the Index (the complete overview of everything in our collection) with decks that ultimately will also find their way into the Blog. Recently we added more than 20 decks to the Index.
As mentioned at the beginning of the newsletter, if, while reading the newsletter you think of someone who would also enjoy it, please feel free to forward them this or have them click here.
Of course we wish you all a wonderful holiday winter season and an exciting, beautiful New Year!
Since we have so many cards at our disposal, we thought it would be fun to draw a card as inspiration for the new year:
