Book Details
Portable Magic: This set of correspondences has stood the test of time, and has much to recommend it. I have no hesitation in using it as the foundation for Tarot magic since I believe that it is, in the main, correct. However, it should not be regarded as perfect or unchangeable. Aleister Crowley did not think it so, even though he accepted the teachings of the Golden Dawn as a received higher wisdom. In his own work on the Tarot, The Book of Thoth, he made an inversion of the associations of the trump the Star with those of the trump the Emperor, to correct what he perceived as an imbalance in the Golden Dawn arrangement of correspondences. He did not take this step on his own authority, but followed the directive of his holy guardian angel, Aiwass, who made the statement in a work psychically received from the spirit by Crowley that ‘Tzaddi is not the Star’ (see Crowley, The Book of Thoth, 9; also his The Book of the Law, 26) .

Reversed Cards: The Seven of Cups is challenging enough in the upright position, but here in the blocked aspect it only gets worse. It is good to have ideas, dreams, and wishes, but when we do nothing but stay inside our heads, we lose touch with the grounding action that is needed to bring all those wondrous images in our heads into the physical world. If you have received this card in the blocked aspect, you will find it very hard indeed to manifest anything right now, as you have deactivated the action part of the seven energy. Thoughts, feelings, and actions create tangible things. You need all the ingredients.

Tarot for Beginners: Reversed, this card may be revealing self-doubt, a lack of self-discipline, or some other weakness. You may be avoiding dealing with difficult emotions like anger and are therefore prevented from moving past an obstacle. The inclination to run away rather than risk confrontations will ultimately cause more harm than it’s worth. Alternatively, you may be being advised to curb baser instincts, such as overindulgence in food or drink.

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.
