The Tarot card for today is the Hermit. This is a day where you might want to pull back and shut out the noise from outside sources. This may mean that you not listen to the opinions of other people. It could also mean that you take a break from listening to news reports or engaging on social media. Keeping to yourself is an opportunity to sort through your problems, concerns, and stance on personal and social issues. Think for yourself.

Hi, all! Today’s Tarot card is the Seven of Swords. As you can see, I’ve switched decks for the time being for my daily cards. It’s the Deviant Moon Tarot. With today’s card, we are being warned to watch what what we say and to watch our steps. Words used for gossip and lies can be hurtful. So be careful. You not only hurt other people with this behavior, you can also seriously damage yourself.

Deviant Moon Tarot Review


The Deviant Moon Tarot is highly recognizable deck with quirky, dark, and unique images. It was published in 2013 and the illustrations were done by Patrick Valenza.

In the guidebook, artist Valenza talks about some of the methods he used to design the cards. He says that the clothing worn by the characters on the cards are actually photos of tombstones bent and twisted through the use of computer technology. The buildings seen in the background of many of the cards were created from photos of an abandoned mental hospital using the same techniques. All I can say is wow!

For me, the most striking motif is that the faces of the characters on the cards are distinctly dualistic. This is not discussed in the guidebook, but on most cards, one half of a face is bright and the other side is dark. These two sides represent our actual moon, a celestial body where one side always faces the earth and appears bright when illuminated by the sun, and the other “dark” side always faces away from the earth. My interpretation is that the bright side of the face represents conscious thought and the darker side represents unconscious thought. In addition, as you look at the images, the eye on the bright side of the face is usually wide open and the dark side is closed or half closed as if it is asleep or not fully conscious or aware.

Some cards, however, are exceptions to this rule. One of my favorites is the Seven of Cups, which can be interpreted to represent being overwhelmed by emotion or having a heightened imagination. On this card, the dark side seem so be in full control while the conscious side seems to be dormant.

With that being said, the basic interpretations of the cards line up with the traditional meaning of the Rider-Wait deck, but even in the best of circumstances the images lean more heavily to the shadow side of human experience. One need only to look at the Two of Cups for a perfect example. According the guidebook, the interpretation of the card is love, partnership, and a harmonious union, similar to the traditional Rider-Waite interpretation. However, Valenza names the feminine character Midnight and the masculine figure Death

I do have a couple of criticisms about the deck. One is that the card stock is a little thin for my tastes. I tend to have a heavy hand, but when I shuffle these cards, I’m gentler because I get the impression that they will damage easily.

Also, for such an iconic artistic style as far as the images go, the guidebook seems to be lacking. It’s not perfectly bound but more like a pamphlet, and not in color. The descriptions are the bare minimum—but maybe that’s a good thing. I certainly am able to get a lot out of the images just by looking at them. But if you need a little more direction, you won’t find it here.

Despite these minor complaints, this deck really speaks to me. It helps stretch my consciousness and adds to the depth of my readings. However, I have heard some people raise concerns that this deck is somehow evil or demonic. To that I say, to each his or her own and I can see how this the Deviant Moon Tarot may be too intense for some. But if you are like me and consider working with different Tarot decks  as opportunities to learn more about Source and collective consciousness, then I heartily recommend you give this deck a try.

The Tarot card for today is the Queen of Cups. This year is not even halfway through but it is already one for the history books. We live in unprecedented times and frankly, so much of the past is being brought up for reckoning. Issues that have needed to be addressed–and weren’t–are now coming to the forefront, such as health, the way we do business and treat workers, and racism. You may be experiencing strong emotions right now. Lean into your feelings allow them to wash over you. Express them outward, as well. Engaging in creative projects, such as writing or other artwork, may be just what is needed.

The Tarot card for today is Death. This cards is about change and transformation, and many people fear those things. Sometimes people get comfortable in their habitual behaviors and with the way they think things should be. Often, changes will come whether you are ready for them or not, especially if you are set in your ways. If change is needed in your life, ride the waves and notice how gracefully you are transported safely to the shore.

The Tarot card for today is the Ace of Swords. This is a perfect time for new beginnings, but you might have to make some decisions about what to leave out. Think of it in terms of making a movie. As you know, not everything that is recorded remains in the final product.  You may have to do some editing and leave some scenes on the cutting room floor.

Daily Tarot Reading for May 25, 2020


Hi, everyone! The Tarot card for today is the Two of Coins. Happy Memorial Day for those of you in the U.S. This is a day we remember those who have lost their life due to war.  It traditionally has been marketed as the “first day of summer” when it comes to sales and the opening of summer activities. With social distancing, maybe there will be fewer cookouts and parades, fewer stores open for  sales. Contrasts. Juggling two ideas at once. This is the theme  of the Two of Coins. For you, maybe this day is about juggling the ordinary things, like finances or work/life balance.

Just some thoughts…What thoughts are you keeping today?
