What is Thelemic Waves? What is True Will Tarot?

Hey, I have a new idea for a tarot and this new idea deserves, I believe, a patent as well as a copyright. This idea is not an answer to the above two questions (or maybe, in its way, it is). This idea is a marketing idea. I’m loath to write this as there’s the hope that this idea of mine does not get taken from me and no financial gain given me. But type this idea out I must, not forget it I must.

You’re familiar with the collectible card game genre? It all began with Magic The Gathering in 199?. A card game involving fantasy mythos creatures and magic powers played like a strategy football-game-like concept of war in an astral plane. Each player’s deck would be custom designed based on cards they purchased, like sports-memorabilia collectable, tradable cards, ad hoc in a collecting fashion. Consider the same idea applied to a tarot deck design. The marketing genius behind the original design, captured by dozens of game companies and brand names such as Pokémon, is that the consumer keeps enjoying new purchases of the product.

To the tarot pack I am considering, I want to stick first with my original design idea of The Landmark Tarot deck. In the Landmark Tarot, the twenty-two Major Arcana are created using images of various global landmarks such as The Supreme Court for Justice, the Great Pyramids for the Emperor, The World Trade Center for the Blasted Tower, etc. And incorporating the tradable, collectable card concept, the Minor Arcana would have a variety of depiction methods for each card. The original pack of 78 cards could be purchased singularly and, like the original G.’.D.’. and Thoth designs, as in the Marseille deck, the minors would be “pip” style designs. An alternate version of the deck could be available, or actually several alternate versions, some with an alternate pip design and some with non-pip, but Waite-type depictions. The “booster” packs of five would also be available, providing random varieties of the minors per pack.

The idea is to be able to provide so much variety, maybe even have alternate Majors in some packs, that a tarotist could virtually design their own preferred deck for readings – or even a variety of decks.

Well, anyway, in short, that’s my idea.

Our passions rise as beautiful Venus forms a harmonizing trine with potent Pluto. Although the intensity ratchets up a notch, it seems to flow with relative ease. The tactile Taurus Moon helps us stabilize our feelings by encouraging us to rely on our perceptions. Luna’s connections with Mars, Jupiter, Pluto and Venus add urgency to the mix. Meanwhile, Chiron’s shift into spontaneous Aries reminds us healing is available only in the present moment.


Taurus
You can get away with turning on the charm today, enabling you to bend reality in your favor. The sensible Taurus Moon activates a powerful cosmic pattern, allowing you to center your energy, express your feelings and interact with others on a spiritual level. Your charisma enchants others now, prompting them to relax their defenses in your presence. The art of persuasion is a tool of manifestation, as long as you don’t use the energy only for personal gain. Creig Crippen wrote, “You will see in the world what you carry in your heart.”

The Feast for the Second Day of the Writing of the Book of the Law

☉ 19° ♈ : ☽ 5° ♒ : ☽ : Ⅴⅰⅴ

Yea! deem not of change: ye shall be as ye are, & not other. Therefore the kings of the earth shall be Kings for ever: the slaves shall serve. There is none that shall be cast down or lifted up: all is ever as it was. Yet there are masked ones my servants: it may be that yonder beggar is a King. A King may choose his garment as he will: there is no certain test: but a beggar cannot hide his poverty

Beware therefore! Love all, lest perchance is a King concealed! Say you so? Fool! If he be a King, thou canst not hurt him.

Therefore strike hard & low, and to hell with them, master!

                                                                  -The Book of The Law, Chapter II, verses 58-60

Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is that which remains.

                                                                 -The Book of The Law, Chapter II, verse 9

First Post

Back to blogging.

Had! The manifestation of Nuit!

Hail this first day of the Feasts of Liber AL.

On this date one-hundred fourteen years ago, Aleister Crowley, accomplished British poet, writer, record-holding mountaineer, and brewer, was with his wife, Rose Edith Kelly, on honeymoon in Cairo, Egypt.  Days before, after they had arrived under the pseudonyms of Prince Chioa Khan, and his Princess, Ouarda (Arabic for “The Great Beast and his Princess, Rose”), Crowley took his wife to the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Cheops and performed a magick ritual to demonstrate to her the astral light. Although having no interest or previous knowledge of the occult, Rose began for several days to periodically fall into trance and express messages to Crowley of the likes “they are waiting for you,” “there is a message for you,” “it is all about the Child,” and “the Equinox of the Gods has come.” And from there she provided evidence through a nearby museum by showing him the deity that she claimed she was receiving the messages from, and it was Horus depicted on a stele that had a catalog number of 666. Other qabalistic questions “drilled” to the previously “uninterested” Rose Edith Kelly, and Crowley became convinced of the authenticity of this occult experience and he listened. As a result, Crowley was then instructed by Rose to perform a rite of Horus each day for three days at noon and to prepare to take a message each day.  Rose added some corrections to the ritual of her own (perhaps “received instructions”) and changed a few traditional particulars, all to which Crowley protests that it means it won’t work. Nonetheless, it works. Each day for one hour, Crowley receives visitation from an emissary of the Gods and thus we have The Book of the Law and the Law of Thelema which it proclaims.

Today I celebrate the opening light of this three day feast by proclaiming this journey, this blog through time and space, in my own Thelemic conceptions, my own existentialist means and magickal attentions.  This journey of light begins on the first day of celebrations of the triune dawning of the New Aeon as prophesied by Aiwass, the prince priest the Beast, and his Holy Guardian Angel, Aleister Crowley. Today begins a new age for me and my return to fully-authentic blogging.
