As Above, So Below: Modern Alchemical Cartomancy
A guide to finding one's path through the Great Work.
One of the core principles of alchemy is the concept of “as above, so below”. This is a shorthand for the idea that the astrological and alchemical – the macrocosmic and microcosmic – worlds can and do touch one another. We influence the world by observing the influences that the world has upon us. The associations between the houses and the processes, between the planets and the metals, between the qualities and the ephemera, serve as keys to allow the universe to influence us. Correspondingly, they remind us that we may influence the Great Work by understanding our place in it.
Within this deck of eighty-seven cards, one will find seven journeys of transformation, bringing the self to the next level of personal and spiritual growth. The included booklet explains the concept of spiritual alchemy, the symbols and symbology of the deck, and methods for handling and interpreting a layout of cards – an alchemical formula.
