Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot was his final opus, the culmination of a lifetime of occult study and practice. With artist Lady Frieda Harris, he condensed the core of his teaching - astrology, Qabbalah, magick, gematria and numerology, and alchemy- into the 78 cards of the tarot. Although Crowley's own Book of Thoth provides insight into the cards, it is a complicated, dated book. What has been missing, and what Crowley authority Lon Milo DuQuette has created, is an introductory text for the deck. In clear language, DuQuette provides everything you need to know about Crowley's fundamental principles to get the most out of using the Thoth deck. Many use the deck simply because the artwork is so beautiful, but there is so much more to it than that. DuQuette starts with the basic historical background of this extremely popular deck before delving into descriptions of each card in depth, from both a purely tarot perspective and from an expanded, magickal point of view. Each card is described in detail regarding its straight tarot meaning, which is then expanded upon with all the other attributions Crowley intended. This unique guide will be of great interest to all tarot readers who use the Thoth Tarot- especially those looking for correspondences with other occult systems to enhance their readings- and will be treasured by students of Aleister Crowley's works.

The Ultimate Solution to Tarot Reversals Whether you're new to divination or an experienced professional, working with reversed Tarot cards is always a challenge. After all, the image is upside-down and everything appears, well, reversed. How can you possibly work with such inverted symbols? Zach Wong has come up with the ultimate solution. He presents different symbolism on the bottom part of the card, so it appears upright when the card is inverted. This is like having a 156-card deck while only using 78 cards. There is much more to this deck than just ease with reading reversals. All of the characters wear masks. This shows them to be similar to mythical deities who assume human form and stand among us to make their spiritual messages easier for us to understand. Similarly, they make the message of the cards easier to comprehend. These cards, with their stained glass imagery, match the traditional RWS interpretations. Wong, however, has added his own twists that energize and add additional meaning to the RWS concepts. You can bring these additional insights into your divinations with any Tarot. This is a beautiful, unique, and powerful deck that matches and expands upon traditional Tarot ideas. The new realizations and revelations you'll get when you use this deck for divination or meditation validate the name and give another reason for you to use this deck regularly. Ideal for meditation, study, and divination, treat this deck as something special...because it is!

This is a new edition based on some of Aleister Crowley's most important work. It is a companion book to Magick by Crowley. The original style and all relevant information central to the work has been retained. The writing was originally penned under the name Frater Perdurabo. The work was dictated to Soror Virakam who writes: May the whole Path now be plain to all! Frater Perdurabo is the most honest of all the great religious teachers. Others have said: "Believe me!" He says:"Don't believe me!" He does not ask for followers; would despise and refuse them. He wants an independent and self-reliant body of students to follow out their own methods of research. If he can save them time and trouble by giving a few useful "tips," his work will have been done to his own satisfaction. The whole life of Frater Perdurabo is now devoted to seeing that you obtain this living experience of Truth for, by, and in yourselves!

A Performance Commentary on the Gnostic Mass

Aleister Crowley wrote the Gnostic Mass in 1913. He described it as the central ritual, public and private, of Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). It is a mythic hymn to the wedding of scientific truth and religious aspiration; the celebrant is encouraged to leave superstition and dogma at the door and join in an ecstatic tribute to the glorious nature of reality. The Gnostic Mass offers a truly modern spirituality and it is being performed on a regular basis throughout the civilized world. The authors—both longtime O.T.O. members and consecrated bishops of the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholicae (EGC)—share between them over half a century of practicing the Mass. Their passionate devotion to the rite was rewarded in 2006 with an important, long-sought insight into the complex geometry of the ritual. In 2009, they published their research in the first edition of this book. Based on a continuing series of understandings, an even more accurate second edition was created in 2010. This third and final edition solves remaining subtleties in the choreography of the five officers and the overall conclusion of the rite. The detailed instructions presented here not only provide the missing performance keys to the geometrical puzzle of the Mass, but offer a window into the wider workings of magical ritual.
