Format: Karten
Seit ich durch Zufall auf die Webseite von Patrick Valenza gestoßen war, verfolgte ich das Werden des 'Deviant Moon' Tarots voller Spannung. Die Information, das Tarot verwende fotografische Texturen von Grabsteinen aus dem 19. Jahrhundert und einer leer stehenden Nervenheilanstalt, hatte mich geködert; was mich aber dazu brachte, immer wieder zur Seite des Künstlers zurückzukehren, waren die Figuren, die er geschaffen hatte: bedrohlich und anrührend kindlich zugleich, mit dem morbiden Charme von Lieblingsspielzeugen aus einer längst vergangenen Epoche.
Die großen und kleinen Arkana sind voll bebildert, die Kartenrückseite ist einfach und symmetrisch gestaltet und somit durchaus zum Legen mit auf dem Kopf stehenden Karten geeignet. In Abfolge und Inhalt hat sich Patrick Valenza am Deck von Waite orientiert, nur hat die Atmosphäre des 'Deviant Moon' Tarot mehr mit Clive Barkers Filmen gemein als mit der Leichtigkeit der Jugendstil-Illustrationen von Pamela Colman Smith. KartensammlerInnen, die weniger generische Illustrationen schätzen, kann ich das 'Deviant Moon' Tarot wärmstens empfehlen. Beim Legen ist der finster-naive Stil aber durchaus dazu geeignet, den einen oder anderen Fragenden einzuschüchtern. Auch das meditative Versenken in den Anblick der Karten setzt meiner Meinung nach eine gefestigte Grundstimmung voraus.
Nichtsdestotrotz - oder vielleicht auch gerade deswegen - handelt es sich beim Deviant Moon Tarot um das Lieblingsdeck in meiner Sammlung, und von diesem Platz konnte es seit über einem Jahr keine Neuerscheinung verdrängen.

Provocative and Intriguing 15. Juni 2014
Von Steven Binko - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

A Deck With Sumptuous Textures, Masterful Artistry and Utter Originality 9. Juni 2008
Von Janet Boyer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten
"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."

As you can tell, the Deviant Moon Tarot blows me away. One of the reasons is Patrick's ornate and captivating rendering of the Aces. In most Tarot decks, the Aces are relegated to a singular suit symbol with minimal artistry; however, in the Deviant Moon Tarot, the Aces are lavishly illustrated.

Replete with arresting beings with unusual bodies, moonlike faces combine with anatomy reptilian, humanoid, mechanic and alien. The King of Pentacles wears a crown of smoking black industrial chimneys while the King of Wands shepherds playful children with tree-like heads.

In the amusing Five of Cups, a nagging wife reams out her husband for presumably spilling three of the cups while her hen-pecked husband holds his ears against her shrillness. In the Five of Pentacles card, a milky three-fingered and toed creature with pendulous, pointed silver-tipped breasts creeps around a building housing a giant peering eye. (According to the LWB, she is a woman of ill repute).

The Deviant Moon expands on Rider-Waite imagery with a gloriously twisted perspective, reflecting common associations in dazzling patterns, striking colors, and surprising juxtapositions (e.g. a tree that bleeds red, a Page that has created himself out of spare parts and a sharp-dressed masked armless woman with a wheel for a left "foot"). The 9 of Cups, usually deemed the "Wish Card", aptly depicts a genie who's just emerged from a child's magic lamp.

Surprisingly illuminating, the 41-page LWB provides upright and reversed meanings as well as a brief commentary on each card (which is especially helpful for some of the puzzling depictions). Some of the meanings I hadn't heard before, such as the 5 of Wands indicating "conflict with neighbors", the 8 of Swords can pointing towards censorship and the 5 of Cups revealing marital strife.

The slick, glossy cards measure approximately 5 ¼ x 2 ¾ inches with a rather muted moon motif in earth tones comprising the reversible backings. This Premier Edition of the Deviant Moon Tarot also comes with a custom 17 x 20 inch spread sheet with Patrick's comprehensive 10-card Lunatic Spread.

I knew I'd love the deck when I got it, but I had reservations if such a bizarre yet stunning offering would "read" well. I'm pleased to report that not only is the Deviant Moon Tarot a solid reading deck, but also unexpectedly insightful. Even when I first began looking at the cards, phrases would pop into my head describing possible meanings for what I saw.

So despite the unusual characters populating the world of the Deviant Moon, they still speak messages relevant and purposeful to discerning individuals. This would make a great journaling deck, too, as well as one for comparative Tarot studies.

Art deck aficionados will want to have the Deviant Moon Tarot for their collection as well as those in the market for a decidedly offbeat deck. As reluctant as I am to say it, I don't think this deck will appeal to *everyone* nor would it necessarily be a good first deck for those wanting to devote themselves to studying the Tarot. However, the Deviant Moon Tarot contains amazing gifts for the beholder and the LWB is better than most for explaining card meanings.

Patrick Valenza's illustrations are so magnificently dramatic and unique that I hope U.S. Games comes out with a coffee book version of this deck, as well as an array of related giftware and art prints. I know that I'd definitely be in line for all things Deviant Moon!

Take A Walk On the Dark Side 31. August 2008
Von Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten Verifizierter Kauf
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.

Get this deck----- 11. Juli 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten
Most RW clones leave me cold--how many times can you repeat the same themes? It seems to me that with each derivation of the RW deck, the symbolism gets watered down.

NOT SO with this deck. Under the watchful eye of the moon, the tarot story develops. This deck also depicts the duality of existance, with the combination sun/moon faces. The graphics are somewhat unique (the Empress has 3 breasts, and on the Lovers card the snake bites the female on the leg.) The different symbology on the cards adds extra depth and meaning. Conventional wisdom usually states to use your own intuition and not use the LWB (little white book) that comes with the cards. . .but in this case the LWB is useful for explanation of some of the imagery.

I've done some test readings with the deck and the results were on point. If you want to check out more images of the cards check out Patrick's website. Well done.

Clear, Concise, with a Sense of Humor! 15. Juli 2010
Von Jeeb - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Karten
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 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. It was almost freaky that the cards were so literal, and it was a testament to their accuracy and humor that they literally showed in pictures a phrase he used regularly when describing his past experience with his lay off.

The pictures just really speak to you. You don't necessarily need to dig deep for the answers. I did find myself double checking in the booklet, but all of my first impressions of the cards were the intended meanings- and some of the phrases I used to describe the cards were verbatim in the booklet- which I hadn't seen beforehand. I literally opened the deck with my friend and used them on him....and it was the clearest, best, reading I had given anyone ever. I was able to easily go with the flow and give the reading, and didn't have to awkwardly pause and look stuff up like I usually have to do when I'm out of practice. Even though I believe books and guides are just guidelines, every deck speaks differently to each reader, sometimes the new beautiful decks can be harder to interpret if you're unfamiliar or unpracticed.

I am far from expert, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Deviant Moon tarot to anyone, beginner to expert who admires the deck but may feel intimidated b/c of their own perceived skill level. There was a steady flow of consciousness, it was just amazing. I loved it so much, that I just ordered today (after buying it 18 hours ago) the Limited Edition Deviant Moon deck to keep w/my "collector edition" tarot decks. As you can see, I was also motivated to post on this tarot forum after 3 or 4 years.

Anxiously awaiting the next special edition trump set...
