The Tarot is one of the most valued and oft-used divinatory tools of modern witches and occultists. The exact origin and purpose of the Tarot are not known; the cards may have evolved out of the Hermetica of ancient Egypt and Greece. Others believed they were fragments of an ancient Egyptian book or the 'Book of THOTH'. The Tarot is two decks within one: a major arcana, which consists of 22 cards, each of which appears to represent an archetype of the human psyche; and a minor arcana, which consists of 56 cards and is the prototype of todays today's ordinary playing cards. Each of the 22 major arcana has its own symbolic meaning. The suits of the minor arcana have numerous correspondences, such as to the elements, the cardinal points, the four letters of the Tetragrammaton, Yod He Vau He, the four seasons, endeavors, emotions and so on.

The Thoth Tarot Card Deck

Aleister Crowley was born on October 12, 1875, and he joined the Hermetic order of the 'Golden Dawn' in 1898, rising rapidly through the grades of the order. Crowley poured the entire contents of his magical mind into his Tarot deck. Neither Crowley nor the artist of the Thoth Tarot Deck, Lady Frida Harris, managed to publish the Tarot deck during their lifetimes. Crowley died 1947 and Lady Harris died in 1962. The Thoth Tarot Deck remained unpublished until 1969. This 80 (two extra renditions of the magus/magician card) card deck is in full living color and comes with a booklet of instructions for use.
