“The Tarot could be described as God’s Picture Book, or it could be likened to a celestial game of chess, the Trumps being the pieces to be moved according to the law of their own order over a checkerboard of the four elements.”
- Artist Lady Frieda Harris
With a back design including the Rosicrucian Cross, the Thoth Tarot is immediately recognized. As tradition the courts beginning with Ace, each element represented in Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles the courts finish out with Princess, Princess, Queen and Knight.
Inspired by Golden Dawn scion Aleister Crowley with art designed by fellow member and acolyte Lady Freida Harris, the Thoth deck contains very striking and fascinating art. The deck connects strongly with the astrological and planetary influences which were then and still today a potent facet of energy to contain. This deck is prized among readers with it’s innate energy one that connects fiercely and efficiently to both single and collective of querents. This makes the deck effective for both group readings and personal inquiries.
The intensity of guidance and clarity this deck provides can be intimidating to the new comer or experienced reader alike. The cards are designed in such a way as to include layers or collections of archetypal symbolism. The strong ties to ancient Egyptian spiritual elements and the Kabbalah become clear for those dedicated to studying this deck and it’s most endearing quality.
Included with the deck is a booklet of instruction, which contains two essays by Lady Frieda Harris and a commentary by Stuart R. Kaplan.
