THELEMA TAROT REVIEW
The Thelema Tarot is a re-interpretation of the Rider-Waite Tarot (as opposed to a Golden Dawn-related deck). It has shiny fantasy-medieval art work with a wonderful, nostalgic feeling on its 78 cards.
Allow’s deal with the evident initial– this is not a deck based upon the mentors of Aleister Crowley, neither does it have anything to do with the Thelemic religious beliefs. The unicursal hexagram on the back of the cards, extensively connected with Crowley’s Thelema is something of a red herring also.
Thelema, when it comes to this deck describes the Greek word for ‘will certainly or purpose’, and also it appears that the will as well as purpose of this deck is to supply a brand-new analysis of the traditional Rider Waite Smith tarot card. The mediaeval and also Renaissance motivated photos mentioned the courtly worths and also enchanting ambitions of these times. A feeling of honour and also self-respect suffuses the Thelema Tarot.
