Book Details
Portable Magic: They form a family unit the sexual interaction of which gives rise to what Crowley termed the ‘formula of Tetragrammaton’ ( The Book of Thoth, 16). It was the Golden Dawn teaching that the court card types were not eternally fixed, but changed from one to another in an unceasing dynamic interaction that is like a dance of life. Mathers represented this dance by the curious names given to the court cards in the Golden Dawn Tarot. The Kings were also called Knights; the Knights were called Kings or Princes. The naming structure of the court cards in the Golden Dawn Tarot is based on the formula of Tetragrammaton. All human types are expressed by the court cards, and human beings do not remain at one age, or in one social position, but evolve and change. The Knight becomes the King. The Page becomes the Queen. The older generation gives way to the newer generation, and the wheel of life revolves.

Reversed Cards: It may not seem like a positive thing to have the card of victory show up in the protection aspect, but it really is. When we are beginning a new cycle or project, sometimes it is best to keep things to ourselves. Even the good bits. Oftentimes it is to keep others from contaminating the energetic vortex we are creating, and other times it is because we are in the process of rebuilding our own reserves of self-esteem. If this card has shown up in the protection aspect, it is reminding you to not stop, not give up, and keep building on all the breakthroughs. Each step brings you closer to your dreams or goals.
