The Tarot is not my divinatory system of choice, but I think my remarks might
show how a Setian would make a somewhat different use of divinatory systems.
You are all free to try the following .
The use of a Divinatory system requires four things to be of use to the
Awakened Black Magician. Firstly it must reflect a Sovereign viewpoint, that is
to say these are Symbols that apply to the questions of kingship, not when the
crops need to be harvested. Secondly the system must be usable within a
rational and ordered life. Thirdly the questioner must be of great emotional
maturity. Fourthly, the system must have uses in sorcery.
Let us consider the idea of war. Now if you asked a general to write down the
categories of war, he might write battles, logistics, strategy, civil affairs,
morale, and so forth. If you asked a physician, her list might be shell shock,
limb loss, field surgery, and the like. The lowly private might have boredom,
mud, death of friends, and fear. Now each of these is a complete map of war
that serves the person doing the mapping. It reflects their needs, their
observations and their wisdom. The Setian looks for a system designed by rulers,
for rulers -- whether it would be Crowley's Tarot deck, the Runes, the Ogham
and so forth .
