I have only had my Thoth deck for a couple of months and I must say that I didn't find it dark or negative in any way. Actually, I found that it portrays a greater breadth of human emotion, feeling, psyche than any deck I have seen. It can take you to dizzying heights, then bring you back down to the deepest recesses of you darkest self.

So far, I am trying to work through this Fool's Journey and I am constantly amazed.

I am starting to think that it is possible that people may bring their own baggage (religious, cultural, pop culture) with them to the cards. Rather than approach it with the preconceived notions about Mr Crowley or perhaps even Abrahamic misgivings, maybe approaching it with an open mind would make a difference.

At this point in my studies, I am focusing primarily on my intuitive (aka "gut") feelings on the cards. I have duQuette's book as well as the Book of Thoth, but read on each card only after spending time meditating on the card.
