5.0 out of 5 stars Deep, Satisfying, Rich & Rewarding - an ongoing journey., 24 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Crowley Thoth Tarot Deck Standard (Cards)
Having started reading cards at the age of 15 and worked with numerous decks, I found that you really do need to have cards you truly 'believe in', cards that touch your soul, connect with you, call to you, that forge a relationship beyond words. The Rider-Waite deck is the original ABC deck, and to most this soon becomes too 'easy peasy' or elementary, and one tends to want something with greater depth and texture.

The Thoth Tarot deck speaks to your psyche on so many levels, on the turn of one card a wealth of internal messages are conveyed : through the use of colour, number, words, symbols, astrology, kabbala, subtle/dramatic imagery, classical archetypes, animals, figures, nature, suits, the four elements and so much more. These cards are pure magic to me. They evoke memories, emotions, thoughts, images and open a portal to future possibilities.

I have had a few people cast aspersions about the legendary late Alistair Crowley, calling these cards 'evil', 'black magic' or 'devil worship' because of the connection. In my experience they are absolutely nothing of the kind!! The book of Thoth and little book that comes with the deck IS confusing and speak of the Egyptian cult/religeon that Crowley founded - please do not read too much into the booklet (as it is quite technical in places, and somewhat dated) There are a few fabulous books on interpreting the Thoth Tarot out there and I would recommend using one of these as an accompaniment. Anyone familiar with Rider-Waite meanings will hace a healthy starting block to work from. However, once you have welcomed the deck into your heart, and decided to build a relationship with the cards, you will find that they will be like a trusted friend, and will never let you down. Have faith in yourself and allow yourself to connect with these cards, let each card communicate it's own special essence that resonates solely with you - and a whole new world will slowly, but surely, open up for you - these cards reveal a depth, honesty and insight that other decks do not. Beware, they WILL tell you what you NEED to know (when sometimes all you want to hear is what you WANT to know). I find these cards excellent for getting to the very heart of a matter, finding out core issues, blocks, things (and people) that stand in the way - in order to be able to come up with sensible, practical solutions that can make a real difference to your attitude, stance or way of looking at things. These cards are deep, penetrating, insightful and spiritual. They heal, uplift, support and acknowledge.

I now regularly use this deck to perform readings for clients. Even after 20 years, my bond, knowledge and connection with these cards grows, changes, and develops in ways that are hard to fully explain - I am still learning about life through use of these beautiful cards, still realising that my evolution is a journey of self discovery whilst utilising the magical mirror that is The Thoth Tarot.
