The Pictorial Key to the Secrets of Aleister Crowley

When Aleister Crowley set out to design his own Tarot deck with the help of the artist Lady Frieda Harris, the plan was that it would take perhaps three months. However, since his focus on detail as well as the brilliance of Harris' art, the project ended up taking five years (from 1938 to 1943), quite literally while bombs were dropping on London.

Crowley died in 1947 and Harris in 1962. Neither lived to see the deck published in 1969 (in a sturdy white box by Llewellyn Publications). Crowley wrote a book on this deck that was meant for people who are experienced in occultism and the Tarot, and a few other books have also been published on the deck.

Remember, Crowley and Harris spent five long years creating this deck. Crowley poured his lifeblood and all his knowledge into it. It's far more than just another Tarot deck. It contains many of Crowley's magickal secrets and ideas, often hidden in the deck's intricate symbolism. If you want to know the depth of the meaning of this deck, you must get The Thoth Companion by Michael Osiris Snuffin.

The Ultimate Comprehensive Guide
Snuffin, a ceremonial magician, professional Tarot reader, and member of Crowley's Ordo Templis Orientis order for more than a decade, examines each of the seventy-eight cards through the lens of Thelema (Crowley's magickal system), Qabala, and ceremonial magic. This three-fold approach reveals valuable insight, significant correspondences, and Crowley's encoded secrets.

Once you have this knowledge, the book reveals practical and "user-friendly" ways to use this deck:

· For incredibly powerful divinations in Tarot spreads
· To develop your intuition to amazing levels
· As a basis for meditation
· As a key to pathworking on the Tree of Life

With this book you will finally discover how to use the deck every day to enhance your life.

A Complete Analysis
The Thoth Companion reveals the symbolism, both overt and covert, of each card. In fact, it covers this in greater detail than any other book. Even though the Minor Arcana appears to be simply numerical and non-symbolic, the depth of the symbolism is astounding, and is revealed here. As a result, this volume is a virtual textbook on the meaning of Tarot and Thelemic symbols. It includes the meaning of each card in both upright and reversed positions, so you'll be ready to interpret the cards accurately and in great depth, in any situation. Unsure of a term? That's not a problem, as the book has a comprehensive glossary. Also included is a valuable bibliography and a history of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (where Crowley received training in the Tarot).
