Do What Thou Wilt Shall be the Whole of the Law
Welcome to Aeclectic's Thoth forum!
This section of AT is a place to explore and study the tarot deck created by Aleister Crowley and Freida Harris, as well as a place to explore the philosophy and magickal system of Aleister Crowley. Please read these guidelines in order to ensure maximum enjoyment.
Being a controversial man, Crowley frequently attracts debate and criticism. This section of AT is intended to be a place for interested people to further study his work or explore using the many approaches to working with the Thoth deck. Debating the merits of his deck or magick does not belong in this forum, as it tends to derail efforts to actually study the material. Which after all is what this forum exists for. Debating the validity of a magical approach to tarot or similar discussions, are better suited to the general sections of AT, such as the Talking Tarot section.
Discussions on the Golden Dawn tarots and magic are welcomed in the Golden Dawn Traditions Sub-Forum
. General magical discussion and techniques, not specific to Golden Dawn, Crowley, or closely related Ceremonial Magic systems, belong in the Spirituality Forum

Readings are permitted in the Thoth and Golden Dawn Traditions forums. Members may post readings they've done seeking advice on their interpretation, offer to read for other members in exchange for feedback, or seek a reading exchange. Please be aware that the guidelines for readings as applied in the Your Readings
and Reading Exchange
forums apply here also, particularly the exclusion of reading requests. You can read these guidelines as sticky threads at the top of each forum. Readings using the Thoth deck or very close clones may be posted in the Thoth section. Readings with looser clones or Golden Dawn derived decks may be posted in the Golden Dawn Traditions section.
Appropriate Thoth clones and derivatives can be found on Aeclectic's main site here
, while Golden Dawn-style decks can be found here
. Neither list is exhaustive, however, and there is always room for flexibility.
For any queries do contact me directly. You can also view the general Aeclectic guidelines on this
page. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
