To be honest this Tarot deck is one of the most intimidating decks out in the market. It is famous and controversial. Mainly because the connecting with the Alister Crowley whose name is on the cover of the deck.

It's not for me to tell you want to think but let me present you with interesting facts about Alister Crowley.

Now, that you are more inform, here are my thoughts on the deck. This is probably not a beginner deck. The reason is it is very complicated deck to work with layers on layers of information, it has deep astrology symbols system with heavy emphasizing on the color, it comes with connection to the Tree of Life and lot more. Books have been dedicated on the subject about it.

So how do you know if deck is for you?

a. you connect with the deck and think the cards are gorgeous

b. you identify as a witch want a deck to do magick, shadow work and more.

c. you want to go the minimal route and own only one deck forever

d. if you are an artist as find the colors on the deck fascinating

e. if you are a psychotherapists and want to explore archetypes

f. all of the above or I just want that deck in my collection

If you select any of the answer above then the Thoth may be a Tarot deck for you. To be honest, my answer for the question above is f. I just wanted the deck in my collection. Personally, I think the Thoth Tarot's the Deck you might want to do deep complicated spreads as there is a lot of substance in the cards.

If you still undecided about the Deck. I have a reading list that may change your mind. To be honest its mix of books I've read or plan to read as I myself am still exploring the Thoth Tarot.

PS1: If it doesn't feel like you don't need to buy the Thoth, it took me many years until I felt ready.

PS2: If you want my two cents on what deck to buy, get the big green Thorth Tarot printed in 2000.

PS3: If you keep seeing things about the Thoth or Crowley then it is a sign to get the Deck.

may you live in happy times,
