......The Crowley Thoth Deck......
The Tarot started off as a Game in the 15th Century and as time went on it began to integrate with Ancient History. Then, in the early 1700's the first Tarot Readings began with a stack of cards. This was the beginning where the cards were used as a Divination tool....telling the future. In the late 1800's we saw the evolution of the cards when Imagery was brought into the Tarot by the Golden Dawn. Today, derived from the Golden Dawn, is one of the most popular decks...the Rider Waite Deck...1910.
21st Century Tarot Art takes you back to the Symbolism of the Ancient Times of Greece and Egypt.
There is an Esoterica Aspect to the Tarot and within the use of the Tarot it has the potential to move between Two Worlds. Within my studies I use it for my own Personal Discovery, honing my Psychic Faculty and the ongoing development of my Mediumship.
The Tarot is a Lifetime Study. It cannot be learned in a weekend or a day. I have been studying the Tarot now for 4 years and I realize I have not even begun to scratch the surface of the layers and depths that The Tarot can take you to.
I am by no means an expert on the Tarot, but like all my studies, I take it seriously and continue to learn within this Modality. I can share with you what I know and believe to be true for me within this study of the Intuitive Arts.
I have created a display of The Crowley Thoth Deck as a depiction of the incredible art within the Tarot Decks. Everything has a meaning and when interpreted in your own spread it brings insight and understanding into what may be taking place in your life at present. As time goes on and change takes place within yourself these interpretations will evolve with you. I loved the Quote from my Teacher...." The Tarot is the Mystery of the Divine within the Mundane"
As seen here in the High Priestess...she has the Potential to bring the Mystery into Awareness of the Seeker...or facilitate the understanding of the Human Condition..to reflect that which is already within us...." Searching for Understanding".....
One of the key elements for me in understanding the cards, lies within the Arcana's. The Major Arcana reflects our Inner World. The Minor Arcana represents the Choices we make in our Outer World and the influences it has over our Inner World.
When I work with a Tarot Spread...I can see these aspects taking place within the Recipients life. As you map the cards back and forth within the intertwining of all the nuance's that take place on a day to day basis...you start to unravel the influences that are taking place. From here...the ability to facilitate change can begin to take place.
A very important aspect to remember, and something I tell all my clients, what is taking place in any reading, whether it be a Psychic Reading or a Tarot Reading, the outcome is a " Potential". It will always depend on the " Choices" you make...as you have free will.
This is a very short overview...and I will continue to expand on this subject over time. Feel free to comment and ask questions and I will be happy to feature my responses, which in turn will unravel more of the layers within all of us.
When you are ready....go to my " Book a Reading" page and give yourself the Gift of exploring " You"....
