Anthony Williams, Austin 3:30 Saturday

Demystifying Crowley and the Thoth Deck

Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947) - the English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer who has made a mark in pop culture - created a tarot deck that is one of the most beautiful, rich and complex tarot decks ever made. Many people are even afraid to tackle it and start off with "easier" decks.

In this talk Anthony Williams (who has used this deck almost exclusively for over a decade) will shed some light upon the deck, exploring its deep symbolism, its creation, and how to give incredibly accurate readings through exploring the life, thoughts and inspiration of its creator.
