Hi similia, of course we don't mind, in fact the more the merrier!
Yes tarotbear, there are four Aces in the deck, at least last time I checked.
As similia says, the top hats were an effort to tie the four Aces to the Magician. The Magician shows the suit symbols as the four tools he uses to create his life and himself as he would like. In the Aces, we focus in on each of the suit symbols. So, the Magician shows us that he has the capability to use all of the four suit energies; while each of the Aces shows us that particular suit's energy in use.
In this deck I did not concentrate so much on esoteric correspondences like Qabala or astrology or even elements. I really wanted this to be a deck whose cards meant something on a personal, emotional and experiential level. Now, the deck may or may not acheive this goal, depending on the reader (in other words, Your Mileage May Vary). But if someone is looking for lots of seasonal or elemental correspondences in the Gay Tarot, then they may be barking up the wrong deck. The project I'm working on currently (the text to the Tarot of Dreams), on the other hand, contains esoteric references out the wazoo.
