Tarot Cards – Seelie Queen & Meliorn, Sebastian & Jace

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 Two of Rings shows the Wayland ring and the Verlac ring. The Wayland symbol is horseshoes, because of Wayland the Smith (who gets a brief mention in Clockwork Princess as having forged Cortana) and Verlac is a serpent because, well, ver in French is serpent or worm. (Lac = lake.)  I like what Cassandra Jean did here with Jace and Sebastian: they’re basically presented as yin and yang, darkness and light. I like the masks as well, one light, one dark, that also indicate that what you see may not be exactly what you get.

The Ace of Rings shows Meliorn and the Seelie Queen: the rings are the gold leaf rings the Seelie Queen gives to Clary and Simon in Lost Souls so they can hear each other’s thoughts. All the Rings in this suit are family rings except this card, and one other.

Cassandra Clare has posted these 2 tarot cards on her Tumblr this past week.  You can check out the rest of the tarot cards that have been shown, some with descriptions, some without, on our Cassandra Jean Tarot Cards Gallery page.  Please note, some of those cards may be spoilery.
