The MAAT Tarot is Julie Cuccia-Watt's inspired re-interpretation of the Tarot, based on the lunar wheel of the year. The images are vibrant, intense, and symbolically rich. The correspondences of the cards with the lunar calendar create additional depth for interpretation. Cuccia-Watts captures the complexities and interwoven relationships of the cards and their archetypes in her detailed and dramatic images.
The application includes the full, high-resolution artwork and detailed text of the print MAAT deck, along with a range of spreads and supplemental information on the use of the MAAT Tarot.
Controls are available to create readings with the full range of cards, include or exclude reversed cards, or to create readings with just the Major Arcana, court cards, pip cards, or combinations.
What's New in Version 1.0.1
Fixed bug in which readings would not be saved when the application stays in the background.
Typographical errors in card text.
An excellent Tarot deck.
Initially I was put off by the price of this app. Still I checked out the images for this deck on Google and was impressed.
On the web site for the deck I found the physical deck was much more expensive.
I have used other decks. I like the Revelations deck, The LWB Touchstone Tarot (their app is quite good) Still in the end I bought the Maat Deck. I am quite happy with this deck. The images and extensive interpretations are quite good, if somewhat different from the more traditional decks. My only real quibble is that they do not support the ten card Celtic Cross layout.
I have looked for many years for a deck that is more relevant to modern life. I know many decks have tried to do this, but I have never been satisfied with what I saw. Either the deck was modern, but no longer fit the traditional meanings, or the images felt forced or silly. In some ways I think the Touchstone Tarot came closer than most. Still after using the Maat Tarot deck I beileve It is now my deck of choice.
I also like the interpretation of reversals for this deck. According to the author, Reversals mean that the influence comes from external sources rather than coming from internally, but the card meaning remains the same.
The use of the moon calendar may not be for everyone. But I find it quite helpful. The symbolic images are at once updated and at the same time incorporate element from many different cultures.
I am happy to have found this deck
Best iOS Tarot deck.
The MAAT Tarot deck is one of the few complete tarot experiences on the iPhone today. It seems a shame that in late 2011, so few publishers have seen to embrace the on-line and mobile space as fully as The Tarot Media Company and Julie Cuccia-Watts have with this fully complete and stunningly beautiful iPhone adaptation of this groundbreaking tarot deck.
This electronic-deck includes detailed, faithful reproductions of Cuccia-Watts' original artwork; it also includes full descriptions of each card that are both informative and leave plenty of room for interpretation. This deck is amazing.
The App's interface is intuitive and offers the ability to create and save readings, as well as options for exploring the deck card by card. A simple preferences control gives readers the option to control the appearance of reversed, negative, court and pip cards as well as Major Arcana.
The App includes includes options for pulling a single card, two- three- and five-card readings, and a Celtic cross spread option.
Among the options for Tarot enthusiasts on iOS, Julie Cuccia-Watt's MAAT Tarot application is a shining star of functionality, completeness and is, in and of itself, a work of art.
Another Excellent Deck!
The only thing equal to the gorgeous imagery Julie Cuccia-Watts creates is her extensive knowledge and interpretations of Tarot symbolism. In addition to being a world class artist, she has used her wisdom and intuition to create a deck that is truly unique in the tarot world and not a mere copy of another's work as so many decks are. This deck has something that everyone can relate to and find greater encouragement in.
This app. is beautiful to look at, handy and simple to use, and one of the most informative/interpretive tarot apps. I have seen. She gives several layers of meaning, detail and symbolism for every card. This is extremely important in giving a quality reading. Having Julie's own interpretations with this app. is like being able to get a reading from a gifted intuitive on the go whenever you like. I highly recommend this program and deck to anyone whether they are new or seasoned in tarot reading. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to her next work.
