This is one of the most popular posts on my website. It would be appreciated. The link above will take you to a PDF, which have 25 of the common Tattwa symbols on them.
Something Gordon said in his most recent post made me sit up and notice. He said that he feels like magical blogging is dead except on Tumblr, but that he intended to stay where he was. They were common enough in turn-0f-the-century magical orders, I guess, where they served as a training exercise for people to develop their powers of observation and meditation. There appear to be two Hindu systems of Tattwas, one with 25 symbols as here in the set I made tonight , and one with 36 symbols adding a symbol for Air of Air, Water of Water, Earth of Earth, Fire of Fire, Spirit of Spirit, and … apparently another six on top of that?
Not sure where those would come from. Something to look into. The Order of the Golden Dawn worked with the symbols system, where a blue circle stood for Air, a red triangle stood for Fire, a silver moon stood for Water, and a yellow square stood for Earth.
The black egg or oval was the symbol of Akasha or Spirit. Each of these main symbols got a card, and then a subsequent series of cards each got a smaller version of the other symbols superimposed on the big symbols. Or you can use mine as an inspirational guide for making your own. Or you can ignore the cards completely. Is it acceptable to use them? Students who get stuck on a design project at school have a tendency to start decorating their work.
We are a visual people, us humans. If my Latin students are any indication, we doodle aimlessly. We also tend to be captured by any wandering symbol or vagrant meme that floats by, looking for a host mind. If we have symbolism to work with, though, beauty is possible. The symbols we know and understand tend to give us a framework for creating further beauty.
I tried to create this with the Design Manifesto and Diagram for my school. By basing it on geometry, I hoped to awaken the people who saw it to the beauties of relationship and proportion.
But as I meditate these days on the power of symbol, my mind keeps coming back to my original thoughts about Tattwa cards, and how unfamiliar symbols could nonetheless key me in to certain elemental awarenesses which were non-obvious and yet powerful.
It may be time to revisit these cards in the near future. Say you decide to print them and use them yourself… and then you discover they have no instructions!? Then what? Each day, take a card. Study it carefully for a few minutes with your eyes open. Then look away from it, at a bright white wall or other surface. You should find that the reverse-color image manifests in your vision on the white wall. When you can reliably achieve this vision with any card in the deck, close your eyes, and try to imagine the image becoming a doorway.
Walk through that doorway, and experience the landscape beyond. When you have finished studying that landscape, return to your body and write in a journal what you have seen.
Note down whether you think the visionary landscape you encountered actually matches the symbolic intent of the card. You may discover that with some practice, your visionary experience, and the symbolic intent of the card, match up surprisingly well. As soon as I […]. Please do. Composed March Oh, […].

Thanks for this. I will be fun to play with. I hope the Magick blogging shifts back. I cannot image that Tumblr can host the kind of in-depth information that a regular blog post can.
It seems that we, as a culture, are giving up depth and import for speed and possibly convenience; a very poor exchange IMHO. Do you think that will be helpful? I do think a border would be nice. I was thinking printing and taking to Kinkos to laminate. FR, hi! I do not know if they have ever been used to teach or train psychic ability. They are supposed to be used to teach and learn Clairsentience, specifically Clairaudience and clairvoyance.
So, I guess that is training psychic ability. I think they use different cards for that. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. How to Use Them Say you decide to print them and use them yourself… and then you discover they have no instructions!?

These cards sound very familiar. Have they ever been linked to testing psi abilities? How exciting! Who knew there were different cards for that. Leave a Reply Cancel reply.
