The Deviant Moon is a strange little deck with tall narrow cards with weird and unusual characters on them. On first glance it may look a bit spiky and scary but when you use this deck you may find a connection that creates a whole different feeling. I must admit that I purchased this deck because it was one of those "you've got to have it/lemming list" decks. When I flipped through the cards, I wondered what I had been thinking. I could barely make out what was going on with these unusual creatures. But once I'd spent a bit of time with the deck, I found that the readings are very clear and the range of messages far greater than even the fabulous coffee table companion book offers. So here's what's worth knowing if you're considering purchasing the Deviant Moon Tarot.
Stand Out/Favourite Cards
Strange but beautiful pairings in the cards depict the human relationships and emotions very well despite how weird the creatures look. The companion book helps point out the little details that you might miss, such as the barrier of the low wall between the angry wife and her little husband. It also draws your attention to the golden door in the 10 of Pentacles radiating light.
The minor cards have just numbers while the majors, courts and aces also have a footer with the title on. The range of colours all set against a brown background make this deck beautiful to look at.
The Deviant Moon appears on almost every card either waxing, waning or full. The deck is also diverse with different ages, sizes, physical abilities and skin colours.
The companion book can be purchased separately but I would definitely recommend it. The full page colour prints of the images on the cards are stunning. The card backs are in a dark brown colour and are fully reversible.
This is the best deck for…anyone who wants something a bit different. With the supporting materials available this could easily be suitable for a first time user as well as a seasoned reader. The key to this deck is to spend time using it and the sharply pointed edges of the strange creatures will soften and reveal much more than you expect.
