Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … seventy-something days I’ll be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have. Today is day 5.

I’m gone almost all today and I didn’t post cards yesterday, so today — have three! The first two are the Emperor and Empress cards, reimagined as the Artist and the Warrior. The Emperor is the fourth card and represents four corners, four seasons, four supports — stability and family, which are Jules’ priorities. The Empress is the Emperor’s counterpart, but a more dangerous card in some ways. She can represent the giving of life, but also the taking of it. And according to my readings the Queen often hooks up with Knights … ouch!

Emma is holding Cortana, and if you look closely you can see the inscription on the blade: I am of the steel and temper of Joyeuse and Durendal.

The third card is a card that we’re not using. It was the Queen of Runes, but we decided to keep all the suits to one family or another, and switched out Emma for a rather unexpected Blackthorn since the others are Blackthorns. I do love Emma having the Strength rune though and it’s a very lovely card, thank you Cassandra Jean!
