For the hanged man I believe it is "engagements." Levi uses this exact phrase in Transcendental Magic, "Doctrine," Ch. 12: "This hanged man is, consequently, the adept, bound by his engagements, and spiritualised, that is, having his feet turned towards heaven;"

gregory, now that you mention it, it does look like it could be "Gold" on both.

I think so. Here's my image:

And I think you're right about engagements now that I look again.

I just noticed noticed I had the Hanged Man really screwed up with things in the wrong columns. Sorry 'bout that. I'm fixing and updating it with the new info that's been added and will post shortly.

I decided to just post a link to the Word document so people can modify and update it as necessary.

Well "engagements" makes sense (and is spelled right too). It was my second guess but his cursive "g's" look like j or y. Though being bound by one's enjoyments also makes sense in a way as I sometimes think the Hanged Man has a very "12th house" vibe in the astrological sense; the "self-undoing" aspect.

Speaking of bound by enjoyments, I wonder what happened to the missing Devil card

Hmm, good question. Decker and Dummett don't say anything about it other than it's missing.

tarot sketches on Tarot Cirkel


Hello everybody!

I'm not very active on this forum.
I see that my facebook page and blog (Tarot Cirkel) is mentioned in this thread because I've been posting the sketches on my blog.

In total I have a copy of all 21 sketches and I will place them all on my website/blog in the coming months.

I write my blogs in Dutch,
These are the posts about the westcott tarot sketches so far

kind regards,
Annick

P.S. no devil card, but there is a big change he didn't draw that card.

Sorry it took so long to reply, I don't check this section often enough it would seem.

Thanks very much for posting these! I tried your text in Google Translate and it translates very well. Looking forward to the rest of them.
