Comprehensive review of the Thoth Tarot Deck by Aleister Crowley The mysterious Thoth Tarot Deck, also known as the Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot, was first shown in the year 1944. The deck is fascinating, partly due to its enigmatic creator, the occultist Aleister Crowley, and its equally inscrutable illustrator, Lady Frieda Harris. The deck features 80 cards, with 24 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. If you are a lover of esoterism, the Thoth deck will move your intuition with its inspiring art and interesting history. It is truly one of a kind! What can a Tarot deck do for you? Tarot decks do not operate on their own. They are not calculators that formulate solutions or generate instant answers. Instead, think of them as compasses that need to be positioned correctly in order to work. Hence, the hand that works the cards is as important as the deck itself. A true sensitive, that is, a person who is intuitive and open-minded can pick up on the cues that pop up in his or her consciousness to expand upon them. Therefore, a good reading depends on the innate hand of a gifted reader, who uses the [...]

Who Was Thoth The Egyptian God? – The Ancient Legacy That Influenced Tarot   Personal Introduction I was first introduced to the Thoth tarot deck while studying in Istanbul. Unfortunately I had no idea what its origins were, and all the literature I could find there was in Turkish, which I could not read so well. I only noticed that it was a much better tool for readings than I had previously encountered. When I returned to the United States, I set about to learn more about the tool that had become so important to me.   The God of Writing and Magic Thoth is usually described as the ancient Egyptian god of writing and magic. In order to gain some better sense of Him, though, one must leave behind our modern environment where writing has become commonplace (and thus diluted in power). This was the dawn of human writing, in a time when marking symbols on stone or papyrus (or on skin) was indistinguishable from magic. Scribes were an elite caste in Egypt. Those few of the nobility who learned to write often adorned themselves in the menhed, the scribal apparatus, which [...]
