Portable Magic
Book Details
Portable Magic: Twelve of these sixteen elemental pairs, along with their compound manifestations, appear in a table at the back of Aleister Crowley’s Book of Thoth (286), where Crowley associates them with the triplicities of the zodiac. They are part of the general Golden Dawn knowledge that Crowley inherited from his membership in the Order. They are not explicitly linked in this table of the triplicities with the court cards, but it is evident that Crowley intended such a link, because he mentions the Princesses (Pages),which are omitted from the elemental pairs in the table. Elsewhere in the same work (23), he lists all sixteen elemental pairs beside the court cards, without describing their compound manifestations.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: Astrology: The expansive benefic Jupiter (dignified) in the second decan of watery Pisces, realm of the Knight of Cups (Fire of Water) and the dreamy Moon (Pisces). Jupiter is linked to the Wheel of Fortune.

Tarot for Beginners: Reversed, The Hermit may point to unpleasant bouts of isolation and loneliness that should be tempered with some positive social time with supportive people. It may also indicate a refusal to learn or listen to advice, which can result in withdrawal from others in anger or resentment. It may be that you’re prone to over-analysis and a tendency to intellectualize rather than allowing feelings to surface. Sometimes, looking too closely at a thing will prevent you from seeing it at all.

Reversed Cards: Here in the retrograde aspect, we see Jupiter and Leo lighting the path to victory. But it’s only the path. This is important to remember. As Jupiter retrogrades, you will need Leo’s fire to burn brightly as you put in the time, energy, and effort to bring yourself into the vortex of success. When this card shows up in your reading, just know that you are not there yet. You are close, but you are missing something. Maybe you have not managed to get all your wands working together, or perhaps your foundation is not as strong as it needs to be to support your growth. Whatever it is, correct the issue and then watch the blessings of the upright and direct Jupiter come to pass.
