Piercing the Veil; Performing Tarot Divination while in the Lunar Astral Realm

(Available for Pre-Order April 2024 from Troy Books)


Tarot has been regarded as a divination method requiring that the Diviner enter a state of altered
consciousness, usually described as a trance [sic] using images printed upon a set of cards to
communicate with spirits[sic]: when used in this manner the practice is little more than a parlor game.
More serious practitioners of the Tarot are keenly aware that the Tarot card images are archetypes
which are capable of evoking vivid understanding of the universal consciousness and the totality of
life’s experiences. Although this knowledge improves the validity of a divination, it remains limited by
the fact that the Diviner operates in the Physical Plane. It is the nature of Physicality that it filters out
the more sublime aspects of universal consciousness.
This book describes a method which enhances the effectiveness of Tarot divination by raising the
Diviner above the physical realm and placing them firmly in the Lunar Astral realm in which the flow
of the universal consciousness is richer and more intense
