Thoth Journey: The Oracle of Change
Joanna-Kate Grant & Aia Leu
This distinctive visionary work is a unique collaboration between astrologer Joanna-Kate Grant and artist Aia Leu. Designed specifically for exploring difficult themes of transformation and change, the vivid combination of art and story helps the reader to invoke the richness of their own creative wisdom; to light their own way home.
Five years in the making, this collection of wholly original work has been developed from a meticulous intuitive exploration of the 78 cards of the Crowley/Harris Thoth Tarot. Drawing on 30 years of esoteric knowledge, the visions that Joanna discovered within the cards, eventually flowered into the book “Thoth Journey”, the inspiration for a series of 79 paintings with which Aia interprets each story. The artists’ translucent flowing style and her generous use of colour provides the perfect visual accompaniment to the fertile and luxuriant narrative.

A well thought out and executed variant to the traditional Thoth. I particularly like the borderless design with the gilded edging. The artwork provides almost an oracular dream feel that inspires insight. The cards are easy to manage and the accompanying full size color illustrated handbook is rich in content consistent with encouraging the readers state while bonding with the cards. A real value for the price. The deck will launch the practical reader into a unique journey as well as gratify a collectors passion for something unique.

I really enjoy the production quality of this card set. It’s exceptional – sturdy box, amazing card-stock, metallic (not the traditional glossy) gold gilding, great book with plenty of info. I’m just in the beginning of learning the Thoth system, but so far I loved the approach to cards’ description. I want to emphasize the art in this deck. I’m a big fan of watercolors and I’m happy to add such a beautiful piece to my collection.

The art and journey this deck provides is something from between the worlds, the spaces that occupy art, philosophy, psychology and love. Totally recommend for all lovers of cartomancy and the divine.

I ordered these a few months ago, they were very well packaged. I love the artwork on the cards. The cards are easy to handle & i love the feel of them. The book it comes with gives you a short story & description of the cards. Lovely book, beautifully illustrated & i also love the stories and their summary. I use them allot as life advice card or in their own right in my tarot readings so im very happy with the purchase & highly recommend using them.

About the Artist
Aia Leu is a fine art painter who works in oil and watercolour. She lives and paints in her studio in the mountains near Kenmare in Ireland where she moved to in 1989. A self-taught third generation artist, she learned the foundations of art from her parents and studied figure sketching as a teenager in Vevey, Switzerland. Her paternal grandmother is the Swiss artist Eva Aeppli.
Aia’s work draws directly from her multicultural and bohemian upbringing, which saw her raised ‘on the road’, as her parents followed their dream of a life of ‘art and freedom’. Particularly influenced by both her years spent as a child in India, and the richness of the Irish landscape, The Oracle of Change reflects beautifully the diversity of her inspiration.
