Unhappy Grimoire on 10-RWS


I figure this has been discussed before.. here i go

According to the 'Book of Ceremonial Magic' that Waite wrote, he somehow despised that old grimoires.. so what about the grimoire in the card 10 -RWS? Thats what the wheel seems to be actually..

I apologize, i realize this should be on some RWS study group; also made a mistake with the title

Those are not grimoires


The four figures at the corners of the cards are standard symbols for the authors of the four books of the new testaments, so it seems logical they are writing those books.

I don't think the 4 Animals are "writing" their own books,
but to me it looks like they're all reading the same book.

If we want to pretend, it could be a book of pictures with
all of the Tarot cards created by Pamela Colman Smith!

What do you think? What is the book they are all reading?

These 4 Beings don't have pen and paper, they have books!
Big books already bound together and with hard covers.

Take a look:

I always feel happy when I see them all together like this,
just relaxing and looking at their books. Maybe they have
a special group where they study together. Just like we do!

What would you like to think of them as reading about?

Cool Study Group?


He he- the study group of Mathew, Mark, Luke and especially John, have their open books (as in open versus closed re occult) to show Pamela that her Grimoire or grammer wheel was correct. There is a pointer towards The Book of Revelations (attributed to John). Or Should that be the Book of Revolutions? The Hoof, Claw, Hand etc are holding the pages down from winged wind. Thats how I see it anyway. ~Rosanne

I always thought it was the Book of Life.

I don't know if Waite was all that interested in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John,but I've been searching for his answer all day. I know this, these books are all open-an open book means an open mind. Maybe they're storing guidance from akashic records or getting 'blueprints' of karmic lessons for the next lifetime. Probably it's the interpretations of the symbols on the wheel. It's getting very frustrating that I can't find the meaning at the time it was drawn. I'm going to be very disappointed to find out it's nothing more than to remember to keep a tarot journal.

John the Apostle wrote a Gospel. The Book of Revelations
was by someone (or something) hundreds of years later.

Oh dear...


Woops Fulgour, I should have said "Traditionally attributed to Gospel writer John." I knew that latterly it has attributed to St John the Divine somewhere between 60 -90 AD- some maybe 40 years after the crucifiction. I don't think Pamela would have been aware of the latest info, tho' I am not sure.Humbly I bow down. ~Rosanne

I can heartily recommend The Book of John to anyone,
simply for its beauty. So-called Revelations ~ I dunno.
But this probably wrecks my hopes of having some fun,
playing with the pleasant notion of what is being read.

Don't they all look happy and relaxed, though?
