Tarot Court cards of Golden Dawn (GD) and Thoth (Crowley) deck may never be in complete harmony with the traditional Waite-Smith Tarot decks, especially when considering the elements. Therefrom, any of these tables would be a mistake and it would be difficult to fully meet both systems. Golden Dawn attached Court cards to the Holy Name (in Hebrew, these are four characters containing the name of the God Yod-He-Vau-Lie). These cards all have corresponding elements and a development process
Yod/Fire = The source of energy is motivated
He/Water = Feedback and support for Yod energy source
Vau/Air = Execution of energy sources
He/Earth = The source of energy has been visualized
This scenario requires the most active and powerful Court cards to appear first and it will be supported by the next card, since then, the Knight has been raised to the position of Yod or a King in the name of a Queen’s husband (He). To create a balance between men and women, the remaining two royal cards become the sons and daughters of that King and Queen (Prince and Princess).
The son will actually be a future King (also known as the Emperor). The members of Golden Dawn have been told to write these new titles on the decks of the continent they live in, changing Knight to King and King to Prince. Our solution in this book is to decide that Queen’s husband will always carry the Fire element – but there is a more accurate system that can be used to express the intention of the Golden Dawn as below.
