It sounds like the author had done a lot of research for that book. :thumbup: Has it helped with your readings?

I think the stars must have lined up or something - I’ve recently come back here after two and a half years or so, but you’ve managed three years to the day. :wave:

If I had to pare it down to one, I'd go with Mystical Origins of the Tarot by Paul Huson.

Even tho I like my thoth deck, I just can't get into crowely at all, i guess cuz he did too many creepy things in his real life.

Possibly but he was very good at spotting correspondences.

Personnally, Crowely was a bit too creepy and whacky for me.

Thanks but I didn't understand that one much either. The one I have now is just fine for me.

If the thoth books are a bit overwhelming, try duquettes book. That is the one i have and its easier to read.

I got totally confused by contradictory Tarot books and don’t have the background in literature, poetry, the classics and the occult to make sense of Crowley’s references so am sticking to just the one now - The Ultimate Guide to the Thoth Tarot by Johannes Fiebig and Evelin Bürger. It’s been translated from German with sometimes puzzling results and the interpretations are often unusual but the way in which they ignore the subtitles completely and analyse the visual symbols resonates with me. I like to study pictures and spot correspondences a lot more than learn someone else’s complex philosophy in order to see the world through their eyes. Now I’ve committed to and am becoming more familiar with it, the readings are getting better, like I’m more attuned to it and able to magic out the card for which the book holds the most appropriate meanings. :icon_idea:

I have or had that book. I can't find it. Will have to get it because in benebel's Sitesee the Tarot series, she does refer to that book.

Mary K. Greer's Tarot For Your Self. I love the workbook format, and the focus on self-discovery.
