The Magical Tarot of the Golden Dawn: Divination, Meditation and High Magical Teachings (Paperback)
The last word on the tarot of the Golden Dawn, this veritable encyclopedia covers every aspect of the cards.
The authors stress experimentation with the tarot, which is a mark of a vibrant magical system. The descriptions of each tarot card are very reliable and very complete. Of particular interest are the alchemical associations and the authors' work on the gematria or numerology of each card. For the first time a complete alchemical system is given for the whole deck. There is also a good deal of added astrological information and divinatory meanings and interpretations.
Several excellent suggestions for studying and meditating on the cards are provided by the authors. This book is a balanced combination of both historical and new material presented by the Zalewskis that stands firmly rooted in Golden Dawn teachings and ritual practice. There are many interesting new innovations in this book.
Fully illustrated by Golden Dawn member and professional artist, Skip Dudchous, this new 2019 edition has been completely re-edited and re-formatted for ease of reading. It will be an invaluable resource for those interested in the tarot of the Golden Dawn.
