Deviant Moon Tarot
I received this delightful tarot deck from my beautiful sister Justin. The artwork by Patrick Valenza is amazing with a dark and morbid flair to it. The pentacle suit has a steampunkish style to it that I love. I have had some amazingly accurate readings with this deck and along with The Tarot of Vampyres deck it is now one of my favorites.
This is an image of the Major Arcana. The backs of my cards are different from the ones shown here and are completely reversible. This deck is so much fun and full of imagination. The images used are easy to read and I often just use my intuition instead of reading the meanings in the little white book that is provided. I tend to do that a lot with all of my cards, whether oracle or tarot.
Here is the description from the back of the box~
Illuminated with the haunting glow of moonlight, Deviant Moon Tarot dares to explore the darker places of our inner psyche and the outer limits of our imagination. Set against surreal backdrops of abandoned buildings and graveyards, the traditional tarot characters are given a stylized new twist. Deviant Moon Tarot delivers the profound messages of tarot with the evocative symbolism and compelling imagery.

Thank you to both of my beautiful sisters for the wonderful gifts given to me this Christmas.
