An insight on the Thoth Tarot deck

Our co-organizer Henry will give a talk explaining this much loved (or much hated) deck. Taken from Wiki:
"The illustrations of the Thoth deck are rich in symbolism, based upon Alistair Crowley's stated desire to incorporate symbols from many disparate disciplines, including science and philosophy, as well as to draw on his extensive knowledge of various occult system (as described in detail in his Book of Thoth). For example, The Hanged Man and The Moon draw from Egyptian mythology, and the Princess of Disks holds a disk bearing the Taijitu. The pip cards in the four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Disks) depict their objects in carefully crafted positions; for example, the Four of Swords (which Crowley named "truce") shows four swords with their points toward the center of an imaginary square, suggesting a possibly tense peace. The card illustrations are uniformly stark and vividly illustrated throughout."
This should make for an interesting talk!

    I liked it a lot and definitely got sold when hearing Thoth didn't give the answers but the process...

    Good morning all, I had booked for myself and Dominique for Sunday, unfortunately Dom can't make it. Which means there is a space for someone on wait list. See you on Sunday, looking forward to a little insight on Thoth :)

    The Rose and the Cross

    Out of the seething cauldron of my woes,
    Where sweets and salt and bitterness I flung;
    Where charmed music gathered from my tongue,
    And where I chained strange archipelagoes
    Of fallen stars; where fiery passion flows
    A curious bitumen; where among
    The glowing medley moved the tune unsung
    Of perfect love: thence grew the Mystic Rose.

    Its myriad petals of divided light;
    Its leaves of the most radiant emerald;
    Its heart of fire like rubies. At the sight
    I lifted up my heart to God and called:
    How shall I pluck this dream of my desire?
    And lo! there shaped itself the Cross of Fire!
