The Deviant Moon Tarot by Patrick Valenza is a unique and provocative approach to the Rider Waite deck. Utilizing the theme of duality, I really enjoyed the contrast in the imagery. While this isn't a deck for the faint of heart, it makes a great addition to any collection. This elimination of the white border is also a huge improvement. Please watch my video for the complete review.

"While the physical deck has taken over three years to complete, from an inspirational standpoint, Deviant Moon Tarot has been at least thirty years in the making. It is not only a testament to my art, but a record of my life." - Patrick Valenza, from the LWB (Little White Book)

I've seen hundreds of Tarot decks over the years, and I can honestly say there is nothing on the market that rivals the sumptuous textures, masterful artistry and utter originality of the Deviant Moon Tarot.

For months now, several images of the Deviant Moon Tarot were posted to the web, capturing the imagination of Tarot enthusiasts worldwide. Many were clamoring for news, more card images and a definitive release date with an almost desperate excitement.

Tarot fans, rejoice! U.S. Games has now unleashed the highly anticipated Deviant Moon Tarot upon the world! And let me tell you, if the exquisite, highly-detailed online images whetted your appetite, the actual deck goes above and beyond expectation! (After my deck arrived in the mail, I was almost shaking trying to unwrap the cellophane.)

As Patrick revealed in my interview with him a few months ago, he created each image made by manipulating digital photographs taken of 18th century tombstones. He noted:

"I would explore cemeteries and abandoned buildings, taking many photos of textures or objects of interest to blend into my drawings. Rotted doors and windows became buildings and structures, while tombstones parts were fabricated into clothes, accessories, or even the citizens themselves. I like to think the photos contain some of the `spirit' found in the places I have visited, and that perhaps some of their energy will reflect in the cards I have made.

To say The Deviant Moon Tarot deck is just another deck in Rider Waite Smith tradition would be an understatement. The deck takes you into another world of ying/yang insectoid creatures populating a bleak industrial landscape. Patrick Valenza subliminally inserted images from cemataries and an abandonded insane asylum into the images. My first impression upon my receipt of the deck that it was too dark for me to do readings with for people I ordinarily would read for; but for those whose tastes lean to the unusual I'm sure it would work fine. The symbolism of the images maintain traditional interpretations in most cases, but give it a new twist. I think this is an excellent deck for collectors as well as those whose tastes and insights gravitate towards dark imaginings. Valenza is a talented surrealist, and more than just in a deck of cards, the images belong in a museum as each are a unique work of art, making the old new again and reinterpreting it for our times.

I hadn't read tarot in years, and while I still take very good care of my vast collection of cards, I must admit they've been gathering dust. I work for a major bookstore, and for the last 6 months, I've been walking by the Deviant Moon deck. It always seemed to draw my interest, but while I would sometimes even pick it up, I didn't buy it until yesterday, when finally the deck seemed to just insist that I get it.

I called up my friend and asked him if I could take the cards out for a test drive with him. Usually, what I like to do is go through the cards, and at least look through the deck and get familiar with it before I dive into a reading. Especially because I find those 'artlsy' decks to be more advanced if you aren't already familiar w/tarot imagery. BUT, my friend was very IMPATIENT, and insisted that I take the new cards, riffle, shuffle, cut, x amount of times for his reading...as much as it made me cringe, I did as he asked, and my reading was so amazingly clear, concise, and just really spot on. The cards often gave me LITERAL meanings with the picture. For example, the question was about his career in our company as we're also work colleagues. He had worked before for Tower records, was high up and involved in the music industry. He has many times told me, and I quote him exactly, "My world was turned UPSIDE DOWN when Tower went out of business, I had vested so much time in that company and I thought that was going to be my career". When we did his spread, I literally laughed out loud because the card for distant past- South Card in the C.C. spread was "World Reversed". I couldn't believe it.

Valenza's highly stylized drawings are evocative, provocative, and fabulously unique. Each card is painstakingly illustrated but lacks the glitzy clutter of so many over-fluffed decks out there that lose themselves in dumbed-down beauty. This deck demands that you pay attention to the meaning of the card, not just how lovely the pictures are. As the author mentions in one of his interviews, there are no "filler" cards in this deck... and it shows.

The physical cards themselves are rather slippery, making them a tad difficult to handle without spilling them. But this made me pay attention to how I shuffle them, and I'm sure with further use it will be easier-- but just something to note.

So far, the readings I've done using these cards have been full of wry humour and straightforward truth. This deck has a crystal clear "personality" that refuses to compromise. Absolutely no fluff here, just an unabashed and incisive approach to "traditional" Tarot reading.

**Update**
I ended up getting this deck a bit wet when I dropped my bag into a snow bank. The glossy sheen that I mentioned before made the cards feel slippery actually saved them (thank goodness) from total ruin! There was minor edge damage to the two cards on either end of the deck, but other than that, it's perfectly fine. I still love this deck and use it regularly, both for myself and others. I find people respond to the images strongly-- for better or worse-- and that seems to help make the readings memorable and poignant for everyone involved.
