The Tarot and the Magus
Opening the Key to Divination, Magick and the Holy Guardian Angel
The The Tarot and the Magus is a groundbreaking work that takes the Tarot into previously unexplored areas of divination magic and spirituality.
The book takes you through new and innovative methods of using previously hidden techniques of divination and analysis to open up new areas of research into the Tarot. The first half of the book is dedicated to a step by step demonstration of these techniques, which all complement each other, and build the confidence of the tarot reader.
These divination techniques lay the foundation for the development of magical and spiritual techniques beyond the Tree of Life, an area previously the domain of advanced magicians. The Tree of Life has been used to define the Tarot, but there is also the Atbash Code, a technique used by Kabbalists (and recently popularised by Dan Brown in the Da Vinci Code). The author demonstrates safe and effect means of accessing the spiritual powers that lay dormant within all of us using divination techniques, the Atbash Code and the Tarot.
Until now, magicians have been unaware of the spiritual and magical power of the Tarot, instead preferring complex ritual magical techniques that require immense preparation for magical tools, a temple space, and a lot of courage. Now, armed only with a Tarot deck and the previously hidden divination techniques, the magician has the power to access the spiritual powers within, spirits who will work willingly with the magician, making the transformation into the Magus.
If you only wish to extend your divination skills using the Tarot, you will be amply rewarded. Professional tarot readers will find the edge in improving their earning ability using the skills demonstrated in the book.
The book is illustrated with the classic Thoth Tarot deck designed by Aleister Crowley and executed by Frieda Harris, bringing new insights into the design of this powerful and enigmatic deck.
Use this book to revolutionise your magickal and spiritual techniques and experiences!
Through detailed examples and profound analysis of the cards, combined with specific meditations and guided visualisations, you will read the Tarot like an open book, and develop powerful and safe Magickal practices culminating in the Knowledge and Conversation of your Holy Guardian Angel.
