Thoth Tarot: Technical Workshop

“The Tarot is a Pictorial representation of the Forces of Nature as conceived by the Ancients according to a conventional symbolism.”

This short description of the Tarot by Aleister Crowley, hints at the extensive dedication needed to approach his Magnum Opus, the Book of Thoth and the accompanying artwork created by Freida Lady Harris.

In the early 20th century, this pictorial representation was transformed by the occultists into the divination tool we are familiar with today. By blending various systems of symbolism like Kabbalah, Astrology, and Alchemy, Tarot divination became a means for Magickians to explore and integrate these traditions into their craft. While Pamela “Pixie” Smith and A. E. Waite aimed to conceal most of these secret teachings in their deck of cards, Crowley and Harris compiled all their knowledge into the Book of Thoth. Hence, approaching Thoth Tarot might feel more intimidating compared to Pixie Tarot.

This workshop is for those seeking to further their Tarot journey and develop a technical practical method to perceive and interpret the conventional symbolism of the Thoth Tarot, enabling them to harness the Forces of Nature they represent. By acquiring nuanced insights and receiving detailed step-by-step guidance, participants are empowered to incorporate Thoth Tarot into their divination or ritual practices.
