I’ve Gone Back And Forth With This Tarot Deck For Quite Some Time . . .
Of course I read numerous reviews and have watched just about every video available about this deck. I’ve been intrigued by it and repulsed by it . . . For some reason I keep coming back to Deviant Moon Tarot . . . It does have that creepy, Halloweenish, Addam’s Family weirdness about it . . I kind of had that same uneasy feeling about Bonefire Tarot when I first bought it. Then I did an interview with the deck and the book to get aquainted. Not necessarily something you can do when you’re deciding to purchase a new deck . . .
You can study the pictures you have available, sit quietly and concentrate upon what the particular card is telling you or how it makes you feel . . .
For me, I had to become more comfortable with the images. I also had to think of them differently — in a more accepting way . . . These are sometimes images we may get in a dream-like state where there is a humanoid-like creature. We may rightfully or wrongfully jump to a conclusion of judging whether the entity is good or bad, positive or negative or would even be helpful or harmful . . . or any other combination of emotions that may arrive along with thoughts and feelings . . .
In some cases, I did see them as having child-like qualities . . . Those times when we want to stick our tongue out at someone or laugh at the expense of another. Those are immature qualities we still have as adults, but refrain from doing, but we may imagine ourselves doing it . . . And some of these characters may, indeed, at times express them . . . Or so, I imagine.
I did purchase this Tarot deck along with the book. I wanted more than the little white book that came with the deck. I wanted to know what the author has to say about the deck and the artwork. I should be getting it late tomorrow. As soon as possible I do plan to do a deck interview and also read the book. I’ll be adding to this post or doing another one.
I’ve had a thought that this could very easily be a daydream of Wednesday Addams . . . It does seem to be a possibilitity . . . This Tarot deck does feed my imagination . . .
For now, let’s turn to the video presentation for a walk through of this Tarot deck. It will be interesting to see if your feelings have changed about the deck at all . . .
I Ordered Deviant Moon Tarot April 24, 2022 — It Was Delayed A Couple Of Days
I read the book and was planning on working with the cards . . . Then on May 1, my precious Yorkshire Terrier Diva died . . . I was so devastated I forgot all about this post and the Tarot deck . . .
It was when I was trying to remember the name of this Tarot deck that I found this post and discovered I hadn’t finished it . . . This is quite unusual for me. I usually write my posts in one sitting and publish it to my website.
Not only did my dog die, but my air conditioner went out . . . I had to replace my heating/air conditioning unit. Of course it was in the heat of summer. I had to wait 10 days before the installation was to be done . . . only to have it go out 15 days later . . .
Now, I don’t believe Deviant Moon Tarot had anything to do with my dog dieing and my air conditioning going out twice . . . It does, however, make me wonder . . . It started out by not being delivered the next day, but a couple of days later . . . We all know stuff happens . . . And deliveries have been a problem with groceries and other items during May and June . . . I’d better stop. I’m creeping myself out!
Delving Into Deviant Moon Tarot
Everyone has their own strategy when checking out a new Tarot deck. Some will do a cleaning process with sage and/or crystals. I usually handle the deck, close my eyes and see if I get any particular feeling from the card deck. I just want to know if I get some gut reaction — feeling good, apprehensive, I may feel emotional — either positive or negative . . . or neutral or no initial feeling at all . . .
I see it as being similar to meeting someone new . . . Depending upon the situation we could feel excited or a little nervous . . . I then go through the cards one at a time — studying each card to see what stands out, if anything. I take my time. I may go through the cards several times, just to become familiar with them.
I’m then ready to shuffle the cards. There is no definite number of times I shuffle the deck. I do it until I feel they are shuffled appropriately. I then cut the deck and select a card. I’ll shuffle again several times, cut the deck and select another card. I continue with this process until I’ve selected the six cards that are necessary for this “Tarot Deck Interview Spread.”
Deviant Moon Tarot Interview
The spread can be set out however you like. It can be one long row going across with the six cards . . . or down . . . or in a circle . . . or in two groups of three . . . The choice is entirely yours.
While I’m shuffling and before selecting a card, I think of the question I’m asking that particular card to address.
Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?
What are your strengths as a deck?
What are your limits as a deck?
What are you here to teach me?
How can I best learn and collaborate with you?
What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?
