About this deal

Steph used the Thoth deck, and she had a string of regulars who, when we moved company because the boss was a bit of a snot, they came with her. Even if they are rarely used for giving readings, they are worth having simply for the opportunity to study Crowley's particularly fascinating view of the subject. It's also beautifully illustrated, and the accompanying booklet is one of the more insightful and engaging I've read thus far. In spite of the bad rap this deck sometimes receives (perhaps because it is preceeded by the reputation of its infamous creator), for me there is no other deck that provides me with such profound clarity and accurate guidance in readings.

To each of the twenty-two Major Trumps of the tarot is assigned, by tradition, a Hebrew letter and a path on the Tree of Life, as well as an astrological sign, element, or planet. On occasions you hear people refer to the deck as “dark”, probably because of the reputation cultivated by its creator.Instead of the usual straight or curved lines, when we look at the Thoth deck we see arcs, sworls, and geometric forms overlaid in a stunning pattern, made more so through the use of color. It should be said that the Thoth has the distinction of being one of the most controversial tarot decks available also. The magnificent art deco work contains kabalistic and astrological attributions described in Aleister Crowley’s Book of Thoth and is rich in Egyptian symbolism.

The artwork is second to none, and they're certainly not dark spiritually, as you may expect from cards associated with Crowley. I own several books that specialize in this deck, and my favorite by far is Tarot Mirror of the Soul by Gerd Zeigler.Included with the deck is a booklet of instruction, which contains two essays by Lady Frieda Harris and a commentary by Stuart R.
