This is a powerful deck in terms of the imagery. I must tell you that my first response was “DO NOT WANT”. Very visceral. Very childish. Very LOLCats.

A dear friend gave me a copy of that deck. I did not mesh well with it. In fact, it’s a wonder that I ever read another Tarot card in my life–but I digress.
