Iniciatory Golden Dawn Tarot


Recommended Posts

So, got my first tarot deck & picked based on my visual interest. Inciatory Golden Dawn Tarot deck. i searched about Golden Dawn & felt i probably bit more than i can chew? there's heavy simbolism in e/card and i think the inicial GD had a strong Cábala inlfuence of which i know nothing about. i also read some bad critics about this particular deck for the imagery of the naked women & that some drawings didn't make sense. so, the deck is there not being used (i haven't even cleanse them yet) what are your opinions about this deck if any?

Well, for a start, you don't need to cleanse decks. :classic_smile:


There's a little about it here:



Here's a good review that might help:

Don't let silly people put you off because of nudity - there is nothing wrong with the human body, even with no clothes on. You're right that Golden Dawn takes a lot of study -  I like the deck well enough, and I imagine if you start by studying the images themselves and what YOU think they mean, that would be a good start. If the art work appealed to you, there will probably be a lot there for you. I'm a great believer in decks that call out to you. I think the artist wasn't really aware of Golden Dawn and just drew what he was told, which is unfortunate.
