World Tarot Day 2016

World Tarot Day™ (May 25th) 2016 founded by Den Elder, 2003.

Tarot: No Longer What You Thought It Was.

The Tarot is a deck of 78 cards which has been used since the 15th century for game-playing, for divination and for self-discovery. It is both sacred and profane, appearing in art, media, and popular culture whilst retaining its mystery in the practice of divination, fortune-telling, and as a spiritual teaching device in western esotericism. There are over 1,000 decks in circulation, with many more being published weekly and over the last century.

World Tarot Day celebrates the renaissance of Tarot every year by highlighting and encouraging discovery of the many faces of Tarot worldwide.

Media enquiries to our Marketing Director, Tali Goodwin, at

On this World Tarot Day 2016 we are delighted to announce a totally new concept in Tarot we have been working on for the last six years.

Project W is being announced in three phases, with the unique concepts/components of the final product revealed at each stage.

This is the original concept which we have presented in personal meetings with publishers US Games and Lo Scarabeo, and several artists and deck designers over the last few years.

We are now at the stage where enough work has been done to show everyone what it will be when it is complete.

Many of the unique components of the final project have also been road-tested by thousands of readers, in plain sight.

Some parts of it have been in production over the last year or more and one such part we will be revealing on World Tarot Day, May 25th, 2016.

It has been called “astonishing”, “ambitious”, “visionary” and we are so very happy to be at the first stage of sharing it.

When the three parts have been announced, we will be crowd-funding the final project across various platforms, as it is truly a collaborative effort where the more people who are involved (both in production and in pledges), the more wonderful the product we will all share together.

It is likely to be an Autumn/Fall campaign with release of the final “product” mid-2017.

Thank you for your interest and we ask for your support in this global project to take tarot to a new, unexpected realm – that may be as obvious as the potato plants on the 7 of Pentacles, but secret until it is seen.

Members of the Tarosophy Tarot Association will have exclusive access to some behind-the-scenes production material and other additional benefits in the final product, so do join us soon and take part in a true tarot revolution!

May a full deck of possibilities be yours,

Marcus & Tali

On World Tarot Day™ we celebrate the diversity of Tarot and bring Tarot to the World. Whilst there are many ways of realising this vision, you might consider:

1. Offering free Tarot readings or talks, a workshop or presentation on Tarot to an unusual group. As an example, local trade groups, lawyers, women’s institute or other professional event or charity. You can also provide talks to your local university pagan groups, through bookshops and other venues. Be aware that many venues are searching for talks on interesting topics – don’t let your own pre-conceptions of how tarot is received limit you!

2. Wear a WORLD TAROT DAY™ tee-shirt for the day or other sign of your passion for Tarot. We provide tee-shirts and other designs and contribute all income to our selected charity, Viv Timoun, supporting the charity work for children of award-winning photographer Alice Smeets in Haiti and Benin.

3. Offer someone a Tarot reading or learn and practice a new style of reading for yourself. Join the FREE Tarot Reading Exchange on Facebook for a supportive environment where you can practice and gain confidence with others!
