Book I: Divination explores the underlying mechanism and methods of divination, including those most favored by the Golden Dawn such as tarot and geomancy. It also reveals how, when, and why the divinatory process works and examines whether or not it can always be trusted.

Book I delves into all aspects of ceremonial magic and the Hermetic Tradition, including Tarot readings from meetings of the original Golden Dawn members.
