Almost a year ago, I wrote an article with Hekate in the G.D. Temple Tarot. It is time to expand it and be more analytical. In this article I am going to focus on the Moon card of the Major Arcana and how the Goddess is related with that card.
In this article we are going to examine if and how the court card of the Queen of the Wands relate with the Goddess of the Crossroads. The reason for this correlation is an esoteric motivation I had to buy a printed image of the Queen from the Golden Dawn Temple Tarot. Without knowing much about the symbolism of this card in the Golden Dawn decks I put it next to a classical image of Hekate and they are going fine. Let's see how this happened.
The Golden Dawn Temple Tarot is one of a few Golden Dawn Tarot decks that are available for the magickal and tarot community. It is a pure representative of the english school of tarot, the most famous school. This deck is the most recent in its category and maybe the most vivid one. It has been created by Nicola and Harry Wendrich and Nick Farrell, extremelly important personalities. It is available in the Wendrich Art House website (http://www.wendricharthouse.com/shop_gdttd1.htm#b1). The cards have been drawn after esoteric work like meditation, astral projection and total understanding of the Book T of the Golden Dawn Hermetic Tradition.
With the archetypical energies of the Major Arcana or Triumphs I am going to present those cards who are straightly connected with Hekate. As I did in Lenormand article, I am going to write some meanings of each card and then how the energy of the card is related with out Triple Goddess. The tarot deck that I use here is based in the english school (Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn) and it is the Smith-Waite Tarot. Though it is not the best deck for a Golden Dawn magickian, we are going to use it and its depictions here.
