The Tarot Cards
My tarot deck of choice is the 'Thoth' deck, created by Aleister Crowley. These are the cards that for me have the most appropriate symbolism to the way in which I read. All of the cards displayed on this site are from this deck. This is a very popular deck, and is easy to purchase should you wish to try it for yourself. For more information about the Thoth deck, Aleister Crowley, and the cards' artist, Lady Frieda Harris, see my links page.
The standard tarot deck is made of of 72 cards, 22 major arcana cards, and 56 minor arcana. The minor arcana cards are seperated into four sections, wands (fire), disks (earth), swords (air) and cups (water), each relating four different spheres of life. Each card has a different meaning, and the interaction of the cards with each other, their individual places in the reading, is read as a whole. One card is very much influenced by the cards surrounding it.
A tarot spread is a means of recieving psychic communication and relating it to 'real life'. It is a tool, rather like a telephone, that enables me to understand messages from my spirit guides.
