Updated Golden Dawn Traditions Forum Guidelines

De Profundis Ad Lucem

Welcome to the Golden Dawn Traditions sub-forum. This sub-forum is designed to be a place to focus on and explore the modern Hermetic Tarot tradition. There are a few guidelines to consider when posting.

Be specific to the Golden Dawn system and its derivatives: Some topics apply to Tarot generally, but are not specific to the GD system. In this forum we will try to focus on the Golden Dawn Traditions. We can however be quite liberal with any content within or related to this system. This forum is intended to be wide in scope and embracing the study of a diversity of tools and approaches, related by the underlying Golden Dawn structure and approach to tarot study.

Discuss the system and not focus on the decks: Because of the pervasive influence of the Golden Dawn, a large number of decks are influenced by the tradition. In the GD Traditions Forum we will try to focus on the underlying system they share and how it is applied. Certain decks or cards within them may be used to illustrate a point for example, but in-depth discussions (particularly where decks are inspired by the GD but not directly one of their decks) best fit elsewhere on Aeclectic. This may seem confusing, since even the RWS is Golden Dawn based, but discussions of that deck really are more suited to its own forum, while the underlying system is discussed here.

Tarot and Magic: Magic is an integral part of the Hermetic tradition, and much of the modern magical tradition has roots here. Discussions around magic(k) do occur in the Spirituality Forum, and please be aware that discussions that fall outside of the Golden Dawn lineages would be moved there, and, that it is a subscribers-only Forum.

Readings are permitted in the 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 its very close clones may be posted in the Thoth section. Readings with Golden Dawn derived decks or using the GD reading method may be posted in the Golden Dawn Traditions section.

For any queries do contact me directly. You can also view the general Aeclectic guidelines on this page.

Who is behind the Aeclectic Tarot Forum?

My name is Kate Hill (also known as Solandia) and I'm a Tarot reader, deck collector, and lifelong student of the beauty and diversity of Tarot cards.

I created Aeclectic in 1996 to share my passion for Tarot with the world, and started the forum in 2000 so others could share theirs too. Read more about me, contact me or connect in the forum.
