Discoursing With The Gods
The Art and Practice of Tarot Divination

by Stefan D. Schindler, Ph. D.

This book shows how to communicate with what we have been fooled into calling "the unconscious." "The unconscious" - the nine-tenths below the tip of the psychic iceberg - is not only conscious, it is super-conscious. It grew us in the womb, knows why we are here, knows everything about us, is always secretly encouraging us, and is happy to communicate. Tarot offers dialogue with the soul. This dialogue can take the traditional form of The Celtic Spread - an eleven card sequence elaborating present, past and future - or the more simple method of question and answer. This book shows how to do both The Celtic Spread and The Dialogue Method. It takes the reader step by step through the process of doing a Tarot reading, for oneself or for others. It is designed to be clear in language and user friendly.

 Discoursing With The Gods employs Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot deck. The information herein applies to all Tarot, yet there is advantage in using Thoth cards. Crowley's symbolism is rich and sophisticated, yet his cards - five years in the painting - are also earthy and direct, often surprisingly simple to interpret.

 Discoursing With The Gods draws on forty years' experience with Crowley's cards. It provides a brief introduction to thinking in terms of yin and yang, synchronicity, Jungian archetypes, the Grail quest and the Parsifal legend. Then it takes the reader through all 78 cards. The meaning of each card is quickly highlighted for easy reference; then further elaborated. The book ends with a "Tarot Reading for The New Aeon" and - for the philosophically adventurous - "The Naples Arrangement," a cosmo-psycho-geometric introduction to the Qabalistic Tree of Life.

The chapter called "Reading for The New Aeon" exhibits Tarot in action. It tells a poignant story. It shows how Tarot works. It shows how to heal our contemporary global situation. Although placed near the end, it is in fact a good place to begin.
