I recently bought this deck. The first card I drew was the ace of pentacles -- it wasn't a good start. A man and women, smiling together with assocated animals (cat and snake). Being a book-person I read the pamphlet and it basically said 'you will start a relationship'

I thought
1) who says that physical contentment [the base meaning of this card] = relationship
2) Whose says that romance is always heterosexual?!

I mean -- it's based on metaphysical were-wolfry and still so damned conservative about what makes physical/material contentment???

The only thing I liked on the card was the heron -- a message to chill out and be patient -- so maybe I will get over first impressions and come to like this deck in time...
