That’s doesn’t detract from the usefulness and quality of this book, which I’d underestimated. There are only four—the four aces. I feel that maybe he wouldnt state his own opinion much because he doesnt want to say anything that would be objectionable to many members of the OTO but I may be wrong about this.

If you want something to clarify Crowley’s book, this is the one to go with. DuQuette teaches always amiably a dumbed-down version of Crowley.

The only flaw I’d say is that he hides the divinatory meanings of the cards at the end so you’re forced to always dig there and come back to the cards, it’s not practical, also his divinatory meanings are very slim and basic.

At the beginning of this year I decided to give thoh another shot. Just as the title leads to say, “Understanding” is a core component to this book. The chapters are short and have a lot of good information.

Liber Aleph is recommended. Atu IV The Emperor. Sep 23, A rated it did not like it Shelves: So I always just stuck to my tried and true Rider-Waite Deck.

The writing style is thoughtful and enjoyable to read. This is a good introduction to the staggeringly complex implications of the Tarot. And I don’t have time for destiny. Plus it seemed as though you needed a deep understanding of Qabalah, astrology, alchemy, Thelema, various mythologies, etc.

Atu VI The Lovers. I enjoyed that there were short letters between Harris and Crowley on individual cards at the beginning of each card chapter, if I recall, that really help and are just interesting.
