If you love Tarot and want to celebrate it with other divination lovers, World Tarot Day happens every year on June 1st. Readers around the world read the cards for each other in one big event.
The World Tarot Exchange celebrates World Tarot Day by giving away a number of decks to its participants in its 100% free event, including a collector’s edition of the Mutational Alchemy Tarot. We did an interview with them which can be found here:
Nvidia has come out with an innovative and fascinating to way to promote their new 1080 GPU (which looks incredible by the way) on their new site Orderof10.com and focuses on the number “10” since the previous series have been the 780, 980 etc. Take a look at this gorgeous tetractys among other cool and interesting diagrams, a kamea of Sol, and an 8-sided mock magick triangle for the first two challenges featuring figures from the history of math, science and architecture. The rest of the challenges will be unlocked in the days to come leading up to the 1080’s release). This follows on the heels of a rash of occult symbology in popular media and website interfaces including the US Army’s elegant Cryptaris website.
Good for Nvidia, this is some very innovative marketing and they should win a prize of some kind. :P
Pair striking images like these with the newly announced today Civilization 6 and its Atlas painting and his lap full of white fertility juice and we might have an occult revival happening on our hands, finally. Yes, I know it’s a waterfall, but anyone who knows anything about ancient shamanistic rights knows about the connection between the male sky gods and water.
It’s been a terrible year for Thelemites, first Boleskine, his legendary manor house on Loch Ness has burned to the ground, the Abbey of Thelema at Cefalu is being sold and is in ruins and now Crowley’s grave has been sacrileged apparently.
The Clovelly Inquirer newpaper reported last week that the remains of Aleister Crowley have been stolen. The article states:
“Aleister Crowley, the famous mountaineer’s grave was disturbed on Friday. The cemetary attendant was performing his nightly rounds when he noticed a large pit about “six feet across” and recalled to our reporters that the sides of the pit were “extremely smooth, like it had been carved out with a giant cylinder bit.” Authorities are asking anyone with any information on the identity of the thieves to please contact the Clovelly Constabulary at +44(0) 1237 431256.“
Whether the job was done as a prank or for some other purpose remains to be seen. The activity has attracted the attention of tourists since the theft was discovered late last week. The cylindrical walls of the pit are a mystery, since Clovelly is a small village and a machine large enough to dig the pit in such a short time would have to be shipped in by sea according to the local architect Edward Neilson – the only ground access into the small historical fishing town is by donkey.
The town today is considered a low crime area and has no history of graverobbing. However, an 18th century book entitled The History of John Gregg and his Family of Robbers and Murderers explains that “Chovaley” (i.e. Clovelly) was once the home of a tribe of cannibalistic bandits. It is alleged that Gregg and his extended family of dozens were eventually tracked down by bloodhounds and were burnt alive in three fires. They were said to have lived in “a cave near the sea-side” and had committed some 1,000 murders. A stretch of Clovelly Bay is called “the Devil’s Kitchen” which is possibly the reason why Aleister Crowley demanded that he be buried there instead of simply having his ashes strewn under a tree.
