Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot by Lon Milo DuQuette

An authoritative examination of the world’s most fascinating and magical tarot cards

Originally published in 2003, Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot has proved to be the essential contemporary guide to accessing the unique symbolism and meaning of Crowley’s remarkable tarot deck, featuring the deeply textured artwork by Lady Frieda Harris. Crowley authority, Lon Milo DuQuette starts by providing an insightful historical background before delving into descriptions of each card in depth, from a tarot perspective and from an expanded, magical point of view. He then explains the other attributions and correspondences Crowley intended.

This unique guide has been updated with a new introduction that provides information on sexual alchemy in the Thoth Tarot imagery, describes the unicursal hexagram card included with some Thoth decks, and includes DuQuette’s Roll-With-the-Flow tarot spread for easy divinatory readings.
