Description

This powerful and innovative new tarot is really two decks in one. It is the only deck of its kind to contain two separate and distinct tarot decks in one pack of cards, each with its own set of imagery, card interpretations, card spreads, and magical uses.

The Golden Dawn Enochian Skrying Tarot is tailor-made for Enochian ritual work, Tattva skrying, and divination. Each card contains the complete symbolism of the Enochian square that it represents, including the elemental, astrological, geomantic, alchemical, tarot, Egyptian god, archangelic, angelic, kerubic, and Hebrew letter correspondences. The companion guide included in this kit contains complete instructions for working with all aspects of this system, including divinatory card meanings and spreads, and complete instructions for Enochian magick, pyramid skrying, and Tattvic work. This deck does it all.

Publisher Review

Although the book that comes with the deck clearly illustrates how to do divinations, this deck is clearly pretty distant from most Tarot decks. However, it will be of extreme interest to ceremonial magicians, especial aficionados of the Golden Dawn system and practitioners of Enochian magick. It’s also great for keying into astral projection and skrying. It’s a unique take on the Tattvas will open previously unconsidered possibilities.

This deck is probably unlike anything you've ever seen before. Take a look at any Tarot deck you own. If you don’t have a Tarot deck, look at any deck of playing cards. Do you see any wasted space where you could fit an entire extra deck of cards? The answer to this riddle, of course, is the backs of the cards. The Golden Dawn Enochian Skrying Tarot may be the first two-sided Tarot deck, ever. It had to be to include all of its symbolism and information.

On one side is The Enochian Watchtower Tarot. The Watchtowers are portals between this plane and that of the Enochian world. They are associated with the four magical elements. The deck has twenty-two cards for each element and each is filled with symbolic information. The eighty-ninth card is a special uniting design known as the "Tablet of Union."

The other side of the deck consists of The Western Tattvas Tarot. This is loosely based on the Tantric mystical tattva system. That system uses symbols such as a square and a crescent to represent each of the magical elements. This deck begins with that concept, but uses the symbols of western alchemy. Thus a triangle with one point up represents elemental Fire, a triangle with one point down represents Water, one with a horizontal line across a triangle that points up represents elemental Air, and a triangle pointing down with a horizontal line across it represents Earth. A fifth design, a circle divided into eighths by straight lines represents Spirit.

In the Tattva system, the symbols that represent the elements can be made even more specific by putting one inside another. Thus, you could have a symbol for Air of Earth or Water of Fire. In this deck the same is true. A downward pointing triangle inside of an upward pointing one represents Water of Fire. However, it goes beyond the tattvic system by adding a third level. Put a third triangle inside of them (say one with a point down and a line across it to get Earth of Water of Fire) for even more precision. As with the other side there are four suits of twenty-two cards each. The remaining card features the wheel of Spirit by itself.

The Enochian Skrying Tarot is so designed that the symbols and images on each side of any card are related. You can learn more of the meaning of one side of the card by looking at the other side of the card. The Western Tattvas Tarot is both elegant and simple, while The Enochian Watchtower Tarot is packed with information. Each of the latter (excluding the Tablet of Union card) includes zodiacal, planetary, and elemental symbols as well as the traditional Tarot name, Hebrew letter and Egyptian deity where applicable. Of course the divine and angelic Enochian names, depending upon the nature of the card, are included. The book that comes in the set is in three levels, each teaching you more about different ways to use both sides of the deck, moving from beginner to advanced.

This deck is drawn using the flashing color system of the Golden Dawn. This system uses complementary colors (such as red and green) placed in close proximity. If the colors are correct (as they are here), they seem to vibrate or "flash" back and forth. This is not magick. It is a physiological phenomenon.

For some people it has been reported that such flashing colors develop a three-dimensional quality. For others, just looking at the flashing colors for a few minutes it can help induce an altered state of consciousness (ASC) which can help in skrying -- seeing on the astral plane -- as well as astral travel, magick, etc.

Enochian magick was once shunned by some occultists and approached with a chary eye by others. However, virtually all practitioners of ceremonial magick acknowledge its power. The Enochian system has its own language and symbolism. Learning all of the concepts is difficult, which is why this deck is an important teaching/learning tool for anyone studying this system. For this purpose alone it is highly recommended. Further, if you are working the Golden Dawn system, these cards can be added to some of your ritual work.

The book of course, includes divinatory meanings for all the cards. The meanings for the Enochian side are based on a Golden Dawn system. The interpretations for the Tattvic side are based on both the Hindu Tattvic system and the I Ching. You can use either side by itself, of mix front and back, using both as part of one reading.

This review, so far, has primarily been descriptive of the deck. The truth is, it's barely scratched the surface of this amazing deck. In fact, The Golden Dawn Enochian Skrying Tarot, combined with the book that comes with it, is a full system of magick and divination by itself. It is so thick with information you could literally spend a lifetime doing nothing more than studying and working with this deck.
