Welcome to Thoth Tarot!

This site is about Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot deck, a set of divinatory cards illustrated by Lady Frieda Harris. Like most tarot decks, The Thoth Deck consists of 78 cards with 22 Trumps (Major Arcana) and 56 Minor Arcana cards inlcuding Court Cards divided into 4 suits. There are however significant differences between more commonly used divinatory card decks (such as the Rider-Waite Tarot or Tarot of Marseilles) and Crowley’s Thoth… Latter is considered to be a deck for more advanced readers because of it’s complex symbolism that incorporates various essentially different disciplines, science, philosophy and certain occult and religious wisdom. Although it is certainly true that many beginner tarot users find other popular decks easier to learn at first, like any tarot, Crowley’s Thoth is intended to be used as a tool for “mapping out” our thoughts and feelings intuitively. Therefore, once the essential techniques of using such tools are esteblished anyone can successfully use this deck without any particular difficulty.
