Wisepenny was great and I am a very happy Crowley Thoth Tarot new deck owner. I can't speak for all the 3rd party sellers out there, but don't expect to pay 20$ for a Crowley Deck from Weiser.
A matter to clarify is that I have noticed many people speak of an inherent negativity associated with this deck. To this I may add that a cleansing should be carried out for any deck after its initial purchase. In addition, I feel it is a matter of will to overcome the eeriness present in the cards. Barlow has stated that each card represents some spiritual entity, Liber 231 for Major Arcana, Goetia for the Numbered cards, and Enochian spirits for the court cards. Perhaps one is thus attuned to one of these beings but for my experience I have not felt any presence when working and otherwise with the deck. I do hope that the reader would be more informed of these matters and that one should not be carried away by the designer's reputation or the cards themselves.
My primary use is for meditation, as a means to commune deeper into one's self and understand the forces that we are constantly interacting with in the world. I could include a list of readings that I feel contribute greatly to this understanding, such as Barlow's books and some works of Crowley, but it would never suffice. I suggest, in short, the process philosophy of Whitehead, Jung's archetypes, the work of Lacan on the role of psychoanalysis (much can be read further in the cards with Lacan), Deleuze's rhyzomes, Merleu-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception, Prigogine's End of Certainty, the Kabbalah of Isaac Luria, spirituality of Sri Aurobindo, and Jodowersky's Holy Mountain, as perverse it may be, it and on youtube his video on the Tarot elucidate the true meaning of the Tarot, which is not simply for fortune-telling, but a tool that is used for self-development and increasing spiritual intuition. As varied as these insights are, I feel they are constructive with one's sense of development. Nonetheless, these are the influences that have aided me. As Bruce Lee would say, "have no limitation as limitation, no way as way." The Tarot integrates well with my philosophy and spirituality, but as a word of warning, do not become ultimately dependent on it, such as throwing down for little matters. Rather, use it in moderation, such that every instance contributes to your self-realization.
