Welcome to cards by divination. First of all I would like to ponder on where the message comes from, when we read cards find when I am reading my cards, when I first look at the spread, I don’t see the picture at first, all I see are the cards themselves. Sometimes the message jumps out and hits me straight away, sometimes not very often once I start reading. I get swallowed up in the cards and just talk and talk, I would see an image in my head or a feeling. I listen mostly to the feeling and refer to the cards as a confirmation, I’m not entirely sure where the message comes from, it maybe born from the cards. I more feel it is a tool of spirit to get message to me, would you like to share your thoughts with me on the origins of the reading message.
Just something I want to say before we progress, I know the
more experienced readers amongst us would like to cut to the chase and interpret
cards as one straight away, I appreciate this and sympathies with going over
each card is not interpretation of cards , by us pondering each card it allows
people who are new to reading cards or unfamiliar with the deck, to see how
we all can reach the reading part
of all cards, by us dissecting the individual meanings we might help some see the symbols and energy in card as well as ourselves.
Some comments were
I use my cards as a tool now, when I first started to read I relied only on the cards, as I became comfortable with the cards I felt more and talked more, I now go greatly by voices and feelings.
I agree, I am relying mostly on the cards, feeling comes later.
I see my message as coming from spirit... prompted by my the cards(my cards are like a safety net for me, so I know where spirit is going with the message, I feel the cards are more for my use than spirits.
I feel that’s why the deck choices us not us them.
Must you do the layout spreads ie: cross spread in order for it to work? I get a sense from the colours in the lay out, read each card, then see what the total message is trying to say, the colour lets me fill if there is a lot of energy or more laid back feeling depending on the message. Think it works through spirit and spirit will anticipate how you read the cards
This can be a psychic link to your higher self, it works both
ways or together.
Lets join as one with short thanks for our focus and protection
With the cards we work with tonight, we give thanks to spirit for interpretation and allow us to see, feel and hear messages sent through the cards, let us take and send on our thoughts held with cards,
And the energy received is pure and light.
Tonight we are going to look at Aleister Croweley’s
Thoth tarot cards
Some of you maybe unsure of tarot, listen to your inner voice and express no matter how insignificant it feels and read them like any cards. Once we’ve got a feel of tonight’s cards we will have a chance to view the cards drawn. So I’m going to chill in me hammock a while and hand you over to the packs keeper, to tell us how the cards are for them and how they feel about the deck. Please feel free to ponder over cards and ask Questions, about them it will help us understand the energy in them.
The pack keepers view on their cards.
The flow feels like movement is ready to begin, I feel the Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot deck speaks on many levels, it bring the hidden to light. They were a gift from a very spiritual friend, surprises can pop up in the reading I don't know as yet how to read all the levels, astrology, numerology, the Thoth contains four suits: wands, I think are intellectual matters, cups, emotional, swords mental and disk money matters. There are many symbols on each Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot from astrology.
Some shared their insight into the Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot Pack
The Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot have very beautiful colourful picture’s I think that draw you right into them with many insights within them. As you mentioned, the Thoth deck contains 4 suits as with other tarot cards also includes the prince and princess cards, the pack consist of 78 cards, plus 2 extra magus (magician) cards
The Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot pack have many images and symbols so if you are unsure of disk wands swords cups, dont worry as the interpretation is key, look for images and just say what you feel when they are display. The pack follows a story of the fool the first card of the deck, the Thoth contains 22 Major Arcana in the deck this is normally referred to or symbolised as big things in life, the others cards the Minor Arcana are more day to day and messages.
These cards carry astrology symbols, they have a sun sign and planetary influences within.
The Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot cards viewed by circle and impressions given for divination purposes, fortune telling, predictions and insights
Lets have a look over the Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot cards pulled for tonight’s circle, the cards were pulled for guidance to a question pondered to the pack keeper, the deck is full of symbols and different meanings, you will notice the deck has is strongly associated to sun signs and the planets, look under the card layers and listen to your inspiration, take time to study the Thoth, dont feel rushed back, give yourself time to feel the card.
We shall have a look at the cards in moment and see what we feel for the Thoth, after we have had a look at the cards we can ponder on the meanings. Study the cards and see below the layers. Listen, feel, see, say after what insights you have gleaned, however insignificant it may appear, it may be relevant.
The four The Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot selected for tonight’s circle are as follows. The circles interpretation and impression of the cards were shared, a sample of responses given by the circle are as follows -
The Queen of Swords
I felt this card shows strength, energy of a person and this one said to me that the person was depleted of energy, emotionally and well as physically.
I felt the person had been fighting a lot of personal battles.
I feel the person is trying to draw energy and is looking for answers, maybe feels a little lost.
I felt the person had healing around themselves, the blue, and was well supported, cloud holding them up, and spirit is around, the angel above the head, I also got that their needs are being met, I saw that as a fish in the other hand from the sword.
I feel this is a very strong woman one who’s had a lot to put up with in her life, she is strong enough to deal with what comes along.
The queen shows us that we are at a point in our lives, where we are working with our minds and using our faculty of though she shows us how to cut through things and see to the heart of the matter. She is cutting out our dead wood removing the things that we do not need to carry with us any more. This card indicates an air sign person or the time of the air signs.
I feel this is the person who the cards are drawn for. She is aloft in the clouds high above armed with her sword she is holding a mask in other hand, I feel the mask is removed, to show true self. Could be that the Queen would waste energy swishing the sword into thin air, maybe even drop the sword as she holds it’s with unease. The sword to me is a doing card. the person may have had there head in clouds, and not focussing there attention to what was needed, they are now turned attention to this doing matter, as above her head is a form of crystals given her a clear insight into things, she should follow insights.
She is fighting her way to higher self and she remains focused and she is being guided on her path.
I agree with what was said, it think it signifies
the person, one who is ready to fight her battles.
5 of Wands - Strife
We then studied the second card and shared thoughts on it Strife.
Despite the cards name I consider this to be a positive card. This card is to me thoughts of the questioner pondered, the thought of “oh well there’s no point in trying because it wont succeed” in this reading a sense of bull in a china shop regarding thoughts and looking at things negatively was just a process that had to be done to get to further down the path of enlightenment.
I see it as a crossroads in life not knowing which way to turn, eventually overcoming obstacles
I feel that she has a lot of battles coming towards her from different angles and trying to deal with all at the same time.
I feel its saying fly free and throw off shackles and burdens that are holding the you back, somewhere is s a warm and loving peace.
The five of wands shows us that this lady is at a cross roads this is a time of change and is more than likely brought about by discontentment with the situation that is apparent at this time. There is a lot of thought activity behind this change it’s not an “of the top of your head” type decision. This card links to creativity, Leo, something I think that has been worked at hard, Saturn, for some time to get to this point there is choices to be made although they may not feel they know which way to turn.
I see this card as strong positive energy reminding us we can call on the energy to overcome strife, stand and fight.
I feel the saying 'there’s no smoke without
fire’ destructiveness be ready to overcome obstacles I feel
also there is a fiery temper within.
Ace of Swords
This person will find their path the card says to me victory finding what they are looking for new beginnings.
I feel this is a powerful card and for the one it's drawn for has more power over a situation than they released, and it's ok for them to have and use the power.
I feel this card says they are coming out of the dark and has a new energy and hope things will be good, winning over adversity in there life, a positive card.
Lots of new energy and a new way of thinking.
The ace sword provides the individual with clear thought with which to carry out their plans and idea and that the strength of will to follow that which drives them for over the next one year period. They may see particularly beneficial times and their plans during the time of a Aquarius early January to early February, Gemini late may to early June and Libra late September to early October.
The thought of Queen of swords has moved on, now the energy on doings things is coming easier and will succeed in things around themselves, with much better directed energy, the sword is crowned and receiving light with a bright horizon.
I feel they have fought a lot on their spiritual journey
however there is light at the end of tunnel they can come out of this
a better individual.
4 of Wands - Completion
I feel this card says that although many obstacles at the moment given time these will be resolved and just to take things slowly and everything will be as it should.
It says they have come full circle and to look inside themselves to find the love, peace and warmth they will find it if they follow their heart.
The 4 of wands harks back to something this person has been doing in their past something they had been putting their energy and vitality into, it indicates something they can now reached a completion on and are ready to move forwards onto the next part of the cycle, Aries, and that it is creative and pleasing, Venus, this is a new love to work with I think.
The negative doubts of the strife card are shown to be finished now, the bull has turned to a ram and is now head strong and certain of thoughts and certain note that the flame behind the wands is burning evenly and bright. The wheel turns.
I feel this person has accomplished lots in the last
year and also the answers lay within themselves and they found them,
just need to trust.
The four Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot cards as one
interpretation, the bigger picture
Insights into all cards shared by the circle were:
I feel this is very strong woman that’s overcome much heartache in relationships and has a choice to make in one now, she will come out of this smiling and will there will be much peace and happiness to come.
The overall picture to me is that although problems around they are can be overcome, with spirit by their side they in time will resolve the issues.
Overall I think this person has reached a point in their life where they made a decision to move forward and to leave old out grown things behind them. I feel they are going though a period of transition where they are out with the old and moving into a completely new phase of life all together. I feel they are no longer willing to put up with things that they are not happy with.
The ability for clear thoughtis there to help them to make up their minds, about the new things into their lives. The next year that will see them move though the many changes they are going to be making this is an exciting time of new challenges and ventures for this person.
This person has had many obstacles and heartache, they found peace and has resolved all difficult situations and listened to spirit and looked within themselves to finally find what they were seeking.
In the past the negative aspect has been almost held back by self doubt and fear of wasting time on things regarding the question. Now this is held much more positively and energy used isn’t wasted it is direct and to the point, I feel this matter will resolve itself to the benefit of the person. All the cards calming and point to the horizon, meaning the issue will turn over naturally and don’t waste time worrying on it, I feel it will come to them anyway and a positive outcome.
Looking at the cards together to me they represent someone with a clear view, who is very much in touch with mother nature and healing energy, also a defender of justice, I get there were battles to be fought in finding the answers the answers lay within yourself just learn to trust what you feel is right.
I saw a lady who has had many problems to deal with and has reached a point of now is the time for new thoughts and new actions, outcome will be positive. There is also possible new or renewed relationship. I feel the lady is a profession career type.
This person is indeed going through much strife and in order to complete a cycle and move on to next phase, this strife, battle, etc, needs to be dealt with, there is hope and guidance its nice to be able to see all the different decks.
The circle then discussed in general about theAleister Crowley Thoth Tarot pack, reading and feelings
Although we do not all choose to work with the same cards and for some they will be unable to read some packs this circle may help us to listen or to tune in another way, or trust our own intuition on our own chosen cards more. Even if the cards being viewed are not your own or cards that you are used to using, you may find that they can bring messages opening unseen vistas, giving us all glimpses and insights where we may not have looked before allowing us all to grow from the experience. We can sometimes become set in the track that only our favoured tools can offer us insights hopefully this circle will allow for us all to be open to the insights that can be gleaned from the many cards and decks we will encounter along our jour through Divination with Cards.
One thing I noticed it was funny how most of us interpreted the question to be given by a women, they felt feminine it shows that the cards told us maybe without some of us releasing, that it was a women who asked the pack a question.
I felt the 4 cards together are very powerful, there was a lot of energy.
When the cards are viewed together they look positive yet alone they showed different feelings.
The energy runs through the deck and builds a bigger picture.
I wonder why there are so many decks? I think the answer to this question is that there are many different people resonate with different cards. Also many make their own cards, then share them. I own 12 decks some of them I never even look at, I have 4 main decks I work with all the time.
Oh my there are 100,s of decks how do you know which ones are for you? By the ones which feel right for you and you’re drawn too. When buying cards it’s like buying a crystal see which deck feels right. You can also ask inside yourself, should I, yes or no? If you feel no then don't buy, if you feel yes then buy them. The pack you are drawn to tends to be the right deck for you.
When do you know it is the right time to read the cards? I have some not used them for reading I just like feel of them. I put my hand over the card box and try to feel if it feels right or wrong.
The question put forward for the deck was: what would be the outcome of my application; this was in relation to health matters?
I will now close the circle, thank you so much for your contriion,
it was great! Thank you for the love and light and insight into tonight’s
cards, so it be
