I wrote this ebook because it’s very difficult to come across reliable information about the original tarot system of ancient Egypt. Most people aren’t even aware of it – they’re only exposed to the christianized Rider-Waite version that departs from natural principles the cards represent. To write this book I researched all the genuine ancient Egyptian tarot sources (provided at the end of the book) and designed cards in a way that would most accurately reflect the principles of nature. Thus, this book has not only information about universal principles that each card stands for, but also original illustrations of those principles. I researched not only ancient Egyptian card symbolism, but also constellations that each card represents, each sign, planet and number as it relates to this system. Also, I included information about how to read the cards, different spread methods, how to make sure the cards show the truth, in-depth explanation of the major arcana, playing cards and minor arcana correspondences, in-depth minor arcana explanation, and much more. I hope that this book will help you see universal principles in each tarot card so that these cards are no longer divorced from the rest of life but are its representations. This is what Egyptian tarot cards are designed to do, and by seeing them this way you will be able to get life lessons from each one of them, whether through making a spread or by simply drawing one card in the morning to start your day.

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist "grid" and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.

For nearly six centuries, tarot card designers have claimed that their cards have an esoteric link to ancient Egyptian magic, some even claiming their tarot decks are based on Egyptian magic. The Kemetic Tarot is directly based on the most powerful Egyptian magic discovered: The Book of Coming Forth by Day, a book of spells and ritual magic designed to allow a soul to invoke the gods and subdue evil adversaries as it travels from the mundane world to the spiritual world of the Duat (the afterlife), and finally on to eternal life in Aaru (the Egyptian Paradise). The book of The Kemetic Tarot explains how to read the Kemetic Tarot cards, with a thorough description of the gods, goddesses, and magic that form the foundation of this unique and powerful tarot deck.

The book is divided into four major parts: * Part One: The Theory Of The Tarot. * Part Two: The Atu (Keys or Trumps). * Part Three: The Court Cards. * Part Four: The Small Cards. Part One is further divided into three chapters; Part Two into two chapters and an appendix; Part Three into one chapter; and Part Four into one chapter.

"Magick is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will."Aleister Crowley was a noted and controversial occultist, ceremonial magician and poet. He has been called "the wickedest man in the world" or "The Great Beast 666 " but he remained a highly influential figure over Western esotericism and the counterculture. The Book of Thoth is an essay on the Tarot of the Egyptians. This book describes how to use the Thoth Tarot cards, a divinatory tarot deck. The Thoth Tarot is a classic in modern Tarot games, it has been one of the most popular Tarots for many years.Excerpt: "THE TAROT is a pack of seventy-eight cards. There are four suits, as in modern playing cards, which are derived from it. But the Court cards number four instead of three. In addition, there are twenty-two cards called "Trumps", each of which is a symbolic picture with a title itself. At first sight one would suppose this arrangement to be arbitrary, but it is not. It is necessitated, as will appear later, by the structure of the universe, and in particular of the Solar System, as symbolized by the Holy Qabalah. This will be explained in due course.THE ORIGIN OF THE TAROTThe origin of this pack of cards is very obscure. Some authorities seek to put it back as far as the ancient Egyptian Mysteries; others try to bring it forward as late as the fifteenth or even the sixteenth century. But the Tarot certainly existed, in what may be called the classical form, as early as the fourteenth century; for packs of that date are extant, and the form has not varied in any notable respect since that time. In the Middle Ages, these cards were much used for fortune telling, especially by gypsies, so that it was customary to speak of the "Tarot of the Bohemians", or "Egyptians"."

Subjects covered in these pages include: Egyptian Spirituality The Akhenaten Heresy and Its Impact on Religion and Mystical Thought Creation Mythology of the Four Centres The Soul and Its Journey in Egyptian Metaphysical Thought Secrets of the Book of the Dead The Nature of the Human Being Ra's Journey through the Underworld and Its Initiatory Significance Egyptian Mysteries as the Prototype of Ancient Mystery Schools Shamans, Hierophants, and the Initiatory Process Wisdom of the Egyptian Sages, from Ancient Egypt to the Hermetic Mystics of Alexandria The Heart as the Spiritual Self and Monitor of Morality in Human Behaviour KIRKUS REVIEW: A collection of insights into the esoteric meanings of ancient Egyptian religious and spiritual practices. This extraordinary book, the product of extensive research by author and Rosicrucian lecturer de Motte (The Grail Quest, 2003), is ideal for readers who want to go beyond ancient Egypt's pyramids, artifacts and mummies. Here, in highly readable form, the author presents the broad outlines of the ancient Egyptian spiritual belief system-from the founding cosmology of a watery, amorphous pre-creation mass to the rise of Ra, Osiris, Isis, Horus and Seth, and on to the highly developed use of symbols as keys to mystic truths, comprehended only by a chosen few. Why do ancient Egyptian renderings of human figures have bird heads? The book gives the answer: They depict, among other things, the soul in flight, freed from an earthly cage and able to access other realms of reality. The book also explains how the scarab, an insect that stores balls of dung to feed its offspring, is intimately linked to the mighty sun god Ra, who must successfully pass through the underworld each night. One of the book's main themes is the notion that, in every age, there's a body of secret knowledge about life, death and the afterlife known only to initiates and never preached or recorded. That knowledge is passed on exclusively by word of mouth over the millennia, lest it fall into the hands of those who would abuse it. In the Egyptian model, the priestly class served this function in so-called "mystery schools" with elaborate pageantry. Although de Motte's prose is highly readable, some readers may find this a difficult book to absorb. The author presents a very large amount of information here, and readers not well-acquainted with his topic may find it necessary to re-read it to keep from getting lost. Only bona fide Egyptologists can render scholarly judgment on de Motte's dazzling pages, but neophytes will appreciate the author's liberal citation of experts, even when he doesn't agree with them. An impressive work that brings light to a mysterious ancient culture.

The earliest known decks of tarot cards created in Italy in the late 15th century were used as a game. The tarotÕs association with fortune telling and gypsies did not come about until the late 1700s. The first decks were hand painted for wealthy families who had the money to commission the decks as well as the time to play with them. After the advent of lithography, the easy replication through printing made tarot decks much more accessible to the everyday man and woman. In todayÕs world, the tarot has numerous uses, most of which have the purpose of encouraging self-knowledge and reflection. The beauty and lyricism of hundreds, and even thousands, of tarot decks illustrated throughout the last 600 years, as well as those currently in circulation and those yet to be designed and published, make them a unique art form. This book celebrates that art form.

The enigmatic and richly illustrative tarot deck reveals a host of strange and iconic mages, such as The Tower, The Wheel of Fortune, The Hanged Man and The Fool: over which loom the terrifying figures of Death and The Devil. The 21 numbered playing cards of tarot have always exerted strong fascination, way beyond their original purpose, and the multiple resonances of the deck are ubiquitous. From T S Eliot and his 'wicked pack of cards' in "The Waste Land" to the psychic divination of Solitaire in Ian Fleming's "Live and Let Die"; and from the satanic novels of Dennis Wheatley to the deck's adoption by New Age practitioners, the cards have in modern times become inseparably connected to the occult. They are now viewed as arguably the foremost medium of prophesying and foretelling. Yet, as the author shows, originally the tarot were used as recreational playing cards by the Italian nobility in the Renaissance. It was only much later, in the 18th and 19th centuries, that the deck became associated with esotericism before evolving finally into a diagnostic tool for mind, body and spirit. This is the first book to explore the remarkably varied ways in which tarot has influenced culture. Tracing the changing patterns of the deck's use, from game to mysterious oracular device, Helen Farley examines tarot's emergence in 15th century Milan and discusses its later associations with astrology, kabbalah and the Age of Aquarius.

In every true act of divination, in every true act of magick, something of the soul is born into the world. This book focuses on the structure of the Tarot and the system of Qabalistic correspondences that transform it from a card game or fortune telling device into a spiritual, intellectual and magical vehicle of the highest order. The major arcana cards each have a chapter to describe them; a complete method of divination is provided. Unique to the Egyptian Tarot of Thelema is the use of British surrealist artist and occultist Ithell Colquhoun's interpretation of the magical correspondences. This enabled us to produce the first figurative Tarot that is fully colour-integrated as according to the schema of the Golden Dawn. The book features 78 full colour illustrations of the Tarot. This Special Edition comes in linen wrap (hardbound), with gold folio stamp on the spine.
