More tarot cards from Cassandra Jean’s complete Shadowhunter Tarot. We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the suit of Blades, replacing the Swords in the original deck.

The five of blades, representing the dangers of ambition: Axel Mortmain, the eight of swords, representing feeling trapped, usually features a blindfolded and bound woman: here’s it’s Jessamine Lovelace. The devastating Ten of Swords is Hodge Starkweather, pierced through with seraph blades. The seven of swords can indicate “someone behaving with less than ethical intentions”, so — Nate Gray.
