Qabalistic Tarot: keys to the Crowley Thoth

$180.00

 This is a 6 week course for the fall Semester.  Wednesdays, starting September 21st, 7:15 pm

The Hermetic Qabalah, a Western reinterpretation of the classical Zoharic mysticism, has had a long history of intersecting with the Tarot. Moreover, both have long been intertwined with the pillars of modern Hermetic thought: such as astrology, alchemy, and Rosicrucianism. Writers like Eliphas Levi have attempted various syntheses of these disparate traditions over the last two centuries.  Aleister Crowley would ultimately follow these trends with the design of the Thoth Tarot pack, skillfully rendered by Lady Frieda Harris, along with the publication of his corresponding Book of Thoth. To learn tarot from this vector is to simultaneously learn the principles of astrology, alchemy, Qabalah, and magick, with intimations to the symbological systems of Masonry, Rosicrucianism, Egyptian Revivalism, and most importantly Thelema, the mystical and magical philosophy to which Aleister Crowley devoted his entire life to the exposition of. None who approach this opportunity will leave any less than conversational and competent to pursue the study of Modern Esotericism.

 This is a 6 week course for the fall Semester.  Wednesdays, starting September 21st,  7:15 pm

The Hermetic Qabalah, a Western reinterpretation of the classical Zoharic mysticism, has had a long history of intersecting with the Tarot. Moreover, both have long been intertwined with the pillars of modern Hermetic thought: such as astrology, alchemy, and Rosicrucianism. Writers like Eliphas Levi have attempted various syntheses of these disparate traditions over the last two centuries.  The Golden Dawn famously presented a reinterpretation of the Tarot, manifested in the Raider Waite and Golden Dawn decks, placing emphasis on astrology, and Practical Qabalah. The Golden Dawn system would go on through the first half of the the 20th century before being further expanded upon by Aleister Crowley, who would ultimately design the Thoth Tarot pack to be rendered by Lady Frieda Harris. This pack, along with the corresponding text by Crowley, the Book of Thoth, has remained a high water mark of Esoteric Tarot to this day, and is the source of numerous reiiterations and attempts by latter-day occultists to re-bottle lightning. To learn tarot from this vector is to simultaneously learn the principles of astrology, alchemy, Qabalah, and magick, with intimations to the symbological systems of Masonry, Rosicrucianism, Egyptian Revivalism, and most importantly Thelema, the mystical and magical philosophy to which Aleister Crowley devoted his entire life to the exposition of. None who approach this opportunity will leave any less than conversational and competent to pursue the study of Modern Esotericism on as firm a foundation as may be wished for both practical investigation and theoretical speculation.
