Yeah, I know, Supertarot has been going for years, but now it is on WordPress, new possibilities open up. Timing wasn’t brilliant, when one of the database servers on my web host had a catastrophic failure. It took time to get back up and running, but the backups worked really well, without any intervention from me.
Turning Supertarot into a CMS was an interesting experience that was challenging, I have to admit. The navigation structure on the static site was a mess, and it took me ages to figure out a better slimmed down way. Things are way more interactive – please post comments and questions on the relevant pages so I get some more feedback.
The search function is really good, and hopefully you will find your favourite pages again.
Now that I am able to see the most popular pages at a glance, hopefully I will add to the website. For example, I was surprised at how popular Understanding Court Cards is so I need to think about what else can be done in that area.
Looking forward to hearing what you think!
Welcome to the new-look Supertarot website. Its been a long time coming…. I wanted to make it responsive using WordPress, but earlier versions were not quite up to it. I was having headaches with the navigation, not to mention the layouts of a number of the pages.
In the end I decided to do some drastic pruning, which made me think about what is the core of Supertarot? The Tarot meanings, Liber 777, Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot, the Golden Dawn Opening of The Key Tarot spread, so the section on other tarot spreads disappeared, along with the section of the Tarot Masters.
Unfortunately transferring to WordPress inevitably means breaking all the links, but now we have a decent search bar at the top of the page so I hope there will not be too much heart break.
Now you can add comments and criticisms – nice to get some more feedback.
As well as my free course on understanding Crowley’s Book of Thoth and its tarot cards, I have now created a course on the OOTK Tarot spread. I hope you enjoy them, and please let me know what you think!
I spent most of yesterday creating 40 Minor Arcana videos, as a commentary on them in the Book of Thoth. One of the characteristics of the cards in Crowley’s version is that none of them have divinatory meanings as such. What Crowley does is to compare and contrast the energies two systems – the decanates and the sephiroth of the Tree of Life, adding in a sprinkling of various magical rituals, in particular sex magic.

It’s been a long time coming, and I for one had doubts, but I have finally got there… My free Book of Thoth Tarot course is now online at Youtube! Exploration of the book itself, the Major Arcana, the Court Cards, the Wands, the Cups, the Swords, and the Disks!
The videos are also embedded in the divinatory meanings pages on Supertarot. Enjoy…
I have noticed a few posts recently on other tarot blogs where the writer compares Thoth tarot type decks with Aleister Crowley and Frieda Harris’s original Thoth Tarot, and it is plain that the bloggers just don’t get it – it’s not their fault – blame the designers of the Thoth clones! Continue reading
Starting today I uploaded a series of videos on the Book of Thoth Major Arcana
Over the next few weeks I will be adding until all 22 videos are in place. I made the videos in about 3 hours, and each includes the divinatory meanings, the Mnemonic, and the Verse. I hope you enjoy them!
I have created a playlist on YouTube for the Minor Arcana and the Court Cards in the Book of Thoth. All the Minor cards from the Aces to the Tens, including Crowley’s innovation of the Naples Arrangement are included.
Individual videos are now included in the Aces to Tens of Liber 777
Now this site is on WordPress, I can respond much quicker to problems, issues or inspirations, and here is a good example.
In the process of converting the site I moved a page to a post on the meanings of groups of cards, such as three Queens, two aces, which got a comment, so now it is restored! This also sparked something extra which you can use to compare and contrast with your own experiences.
The divinatory implications of the Wheel of Fortune are very simple. A change of luck for the better is indicated – if the card is reversed, then that luck is either delayed or diminished. For most readings, this somewhat simplistic interpretation works very well, but there are hidden depths to this card that need to come to the surface. Continue reading
While I was working on the facelift for Supertarot, I did a few tweaks. Basically, the Astrology section, Liber 777 and the card meanings are all interlinked. If you want to know about say, the Hermit card, also look it up in Liber 777. Look closely, and you will see that the order of the Major Arcana is different between the meanings and Liber 777. This is deliberate!
Now, the first paragraph for each of the Minor Arcana concerns the dictionary meanings. I also paid a bit more attention to the titles of the Minor Arcana – Love, Abundance, Oppression, etc. There is a belief that reversed cards show the opposite interpretation. This does not work with dictionary definitions – not many of the titles of the 36 cards have antonyms. Furthermore, some meanings do not chime with the dictionary. Five of Swords Defeat is a good example, for to defeat means to win, overcome, but in the Tarot, it means to lose. Go figure.
