Tarot and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

In this episode, we delve into the fascinating history of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and its significant influence on the development and interpretation of Tarot. The Golden Dawn was a secret society founded in the late 19th century that sought to explore the mysteries of the occult, magic, and alchemy. One of the group's core beliefs was that Tarot cards held hidden symbolic meanings that could be unlocked through careful study and meditation.

We explore how members of the Golden Dawn, such as Aleister Crowley and Arthur Edward Waite, worked to develop new Tarot decks based on their deep understanding of esoteric principles and ancient mystical traditions. We also examine how their innovative approaches to Tarot interpretation, such as the use of astrological correspondences and the inclusion of Hebrew letters and other mystical symbols, have become standard in many modern Tarot decks.

Join us as we uncover the rich history and enduring legacy of the Golden Dawn's impact on Tarot, and discover how this mystical tradition continues to inspire and fascinate Tarot enthusiasts today.
