pentacle ring


I’m packing up orders this weekend, so if you buy something now, it ought to ship by Monday (barring disaster/mishap/zombie apocalypse)!


Almost to the end of the Rings (Pentacles) arcana tarot cards from Cassandra Jean’s  Shadowhunter Tarot (And thus only one more post before the whole deck has been posted in completion.) You can just click the Shadowhunter Tarot to see them all. The two of rings shows the Morgenstern family ring, with a pattern of stars, and Jace and Sebastian. The three of rings shows Emma and her father and the Carstairs family ring with a pattern of castles. The four of rings shows Cristina and Jaime, with the Rosales family ring with a pattern of roses, the five of rings shows the whole Blackthorn family with the Blackthorn ring, patterned with thorns, and the sad six of rings shows Aloysius Starkweather and his granddaughter Adele, with the Starkweather family ring patterned with lightning. 

Throwing some ideas out there

I’ve been throwing around an idea for a symbol that would represent the witchy part as well the Christian aspects of my faith. 

And then it hit me. The pentacle has a circle that connects all the elements together. What connects us Christians (despite our lines drawn in the sand)? We believe that Jesus died for our sins, no? One of the symbols of the Crucifixion is the Crown of Thorns. Which, incidentally, is shaped in a circle.

So why not combine the two? A pentacle with the Crown of Thorns. It’s a relatively universal symbol and with the pentagram between it looks quite snug between those pricking spikes.

I quickly put together a few examples in a free photo editing site and the results may be a bit choppy and I apologize.

This one has an intertwining Crown:

And this one is a bit more masculine:

The last one is my personal favorite:

So yeah. I like the oxymoron of these pictures. They fit really well. Mentioning  pastorwitch since this is what I had in mind

How To: Make Tarot Cards

Recently I have seen a lot of people discussing issues on affording a tarot deck or not liking the ones they see on store shelves. I have decided to make a little guide of instructions on how to make your own tarot card deck at home. I feel like crafting your own deck is more personal and gives more meaning to the cards.

Materials Needed:

  • Blank Card Stock Paper (avaliable at most craft stores)
  • Scissors
  • Tracing Paper (semi-clear)
  • Self-Laminating Paper
  • Pencil or Pen
  • Colored Pencils, Markers, or Other Coloring Material
  • A Well Lit Room

The first of the Rings (Pentacles( arcana tarot cards from Cassandra Jean’s complete Shadowhunter Tarot. The ten of rings shows the Branwell family ring, with a pattern of waves, and Charlotte and Henry. The nine of rings shows Jace and Will Herondale and the Herondale family ring with a pattern of birds. The eight of rings shows Matthew Fairchild, the Fairchild family ring with a pattern of wings, and the seven of rings shows Clary and Jonathan Morgenstern and the Morgenstern ring with its pattern of stars. (Their pose is a little like the pose on the cover of City of Heavenly Fire — cool.)

Hi Cassandra just got your tarot cards and got questions. I hope you can answer soon. I have read tarot for years so I love that my fav books are in tarot, but I am confused with the extra card. Also trying to decide if the runes are the cups and the rings are the pentacles? If I am on the right track let me know and extra card?

There are two fool cards, so pick your favorite to use in the deck and the other is a little gift for funsies!

The Dreamer & The Innocent / The Fool

22 The Scientist / The Fool

The suits go like this

Blades = Swords

Steles = Wands

Runes = Cups

Rings =  Pentacles


Happy Birthday Hyde!

I have nothing to offer, so here is a list of random Hydefacts that many fans probably already know, but maybe some don’t. Take it all with a grain of salt though ne? Sorry for the rush job ^^;;

  1. In the early 90s, Hyde and Kiyoharu from Kuroyume were roommates. However, Hyde kicked him out so that Sakura could move in
  2. Around the time of Moon Child, Hyde found out that there were polyps growing on his vocal cords and was forced to have them surgically removed. He was also rumored to be a little depressed at the time and often went out drinking with Gackt
