Cassandra Jean created a set of Shadowhunter tarot cards inspired by the Shadowhunter Chronicles. Cassandra Clare has been posting these tarot cards on her tumblr for months. Now Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot and so for the next eighty-four days (well it will get shorter and shorter as she posts) Cassandra will be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last in the set. Some we have seen before and some will be new. Each card will have an explanation by Cassandra why each character has the card they have.
We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. Each Rings card shows the family ring of a particular Shadowhunter family and some of the members. The Six of Rings shows the Starkweather family in the TID era — Aloysius and the portrait of Adele that Tessa encounters in Clockwork Prince.
Such a sad family!
We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. The Five of Rings is the Blackthorn ring. It shows the Blackthorn family, TDA-era, in all their glory. Tiberius looking crabby as usual, Julian messing around, Mark being serious.
The Five of Pentacles (Rings here) can often represent going forward after suffering a loss.
