According to Chic & Sandra Tabatha Cicero, the tarot is much more than a collection of symbolic images—it's a vibrant ecosystem of interconnected energies and entities. In this groundbreaking approach to tarot, they introduce how these powerful cards can be magically transformed into talismans and amulets.
Part one of this book explores the nature of talismans and amulets, how magic works, the role of the divine in magic, and magical ethics. The specific energies and talismanic/amuletic uses of each card are described, along with its magical correspondences-spanning elemental, astrological, and Qabalistic qualities. Part two is devoted to "tarot angels" and invoking these divine energies, including how to use the Golden Dawn method, known as telesmatic magic. Ritual card spreads, consecration rites, and step-by-step examples demonstrate how to use magical talismans to get a promotion, gain psychic talent, promote healing, mend a broken friendship, enhance magic skills, and more.
Of the many esoteric subjects studied by ceremonial magicians, alchemy is often considered one of the hardest and most arcane, while the tarot is thought to be one of the most accessible and “hands-on.” Historically the language of alchemy with its inscrutable riddles and metaphors have baffled many students, while the images of the tarot are more direct and often need little explanation.

Golden Dawn Adepts Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero here provide the illuminating Philosopher's Stone Tarot Spread.
The Major Arcana comes to us in a numbered sequence, and over time that sequence has become a vital part of the cards' interpretation. Most tarot commentators do not look to the Magician only for its individual qualities but as card I, the beginning of the journey. For Qabalists, the order of the cards determines what pathway each one occupies on the Tree of Life. And yet, part of the glory of...

Pathworkings are a type of guided meditation based on the Major Arcana of the tarot. The idea of guided meditation for spiritual purposes goes back to St. Ignatius of Loyola in the sixteenth century, if not earlier. These exercises are based on the Tree of Life diagram, and derive from the Kabbalah, a school of Jewish mysticism dating back at least to the thirteenth century. Such meditations were...
Tarot cards are not just for fortune telling; they are also effective tools of magic. As talismans, they can alter your life in profound ways. Buying a separate deck for this purpose can help influence your life for the better — let Melanie Harris explain how!
Tarot cards can be used in virtually any magical setting to uncover hidden meanings, discover new information, and to reach divine powers, energies, and beings. Chic & Sandra Tabatha Cicero, authors of Tarot Talismans, explains how to use Tarot cards to craft rituals around individual angels to reach a specific goal.
In the Qabalah system, the Tree of Life contains spheres and paths, all leading to the crown, Kether. This crown corresponds to the crown chakra and the source of all divine energy. For those on a spiritual path, a myriad of tools exist to help ...
Like most people who first begin to take up studies in magic and suddenly find themselves attracted to the cards of the tarot, we originally thought that the primary use of tarot cards was for divination — to see into future events and try to ...
The Great Occult Schism
Have you ever noticed there is a distinct separation between modern Western occultism (i.e. Wicca, Thelema, Golden Dawn, Theosophy, the New Age, etc.) and the indigenous occultism practiced by the rest of the world? Our techniques are different in fundamental ways, and (historically) both sides have suffered from various... read this article
