Thoth Tarot Card - The Aeon
The Thoth Tarot is a tarot deck created by the British occultist Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), which contains scientific concepts and astrological, numerological, Kabbalah, and Ancient Egyptian knowledge.
This tarot deck is rich in symbolism and beautiful images. Despite being complex and mysterious, the Thoth Tarot is one of the most popular tarot decks in the world.
Many point out that this tarot deck has dark content. The reality is that this reputation is due to the fame that Crowley himself cultivated during his lifetime.
The Thoth Tarot is composed of 78 cards, 22 of which are Major Arcana. One of them is The Aeon, which is equivalent to the Judgment card in traditional tarot.
Below is a detailed explanation of the Thoth Tarot card The Aeon.
Interpretation of the graphics in the Aeon
Thoth Tarot card The Aeon is graphically represented by the goddess Nuit.
Below her is Ra-Hoor-Kuit, one of the twins. He carries the Phoenix rod in his right hand, signifying rebirth. In front of him is Hoor-Pa-Kraat, his twin brother, who makes the sign of silence.
The two twins represent the sun in the Thelema symbolism, a religious philosophy founded by Crowley, the Thoth Tarot creator.
In the image, you can also see the god Hadit, represented by a sun with wings. At the end of the image, you can see the Hebrew letter Shin, which means rebirth.
General meaning of the Aeon
Thoth Tarot card The Aeon indicates the need for a global understanding of a situation.
Such an understanding can take a long time, as it is complex, and several aspects must be taken into account.
Such a process can be analytical, but you must also consider the individual's soul, body, and mind. Only in this way can a fair and intelligent judgment be achieved.
Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot proposes that you renounce your limited perspective and see situations from a higher level to judge them. In this way, you will be able to see things as they are.
Divinatory meaning: sudden growth, maturity, judicial announcements, painful experiences, death, resurrection, elimination of worldly desires.
The Aeon also has a deep spiritual significance. This card announces that you will soon experience an awakening of consciousness that will mark a before and after in your life.
You observe reality from a global perspective without making value judgments. You already feel ready to eliminate from your life old structures that are not in harmony with you.
You live this process in peace, in silence, and feeling better and better. Your vibratory frequency rises, and your reality projects the spiritual evolution you are experiencing.
You meet new people with whom you feel at ease, as they are evolving along with you.
The Aeon card points to a deep inner work to be done by the individual. He must leave behind the past and be predisposed to receive the future.
Then he must break with old dogmas, traditions, and habits that no longer serve him.
The individual must be willing to "die" to an old identity and be reborn in a new one.
This indicates the evolution that the individual must go through to discover himself.
