Harry Potter Tarot: 9 of Pentacles by nasubionna Harry Potter Tarot: 9 of Pentacles by nasubionna
9 of Pentacles/Ravenclaw: Horace Slughorn
This is a card of refinement and diplomacy, seeking a comfortable and leisurely lifestyle. This card is gracious and self-reliant, and, as LearnTarot.com worded it, "avoiding the coarse and unsavory". All of these things fit Horace Slughorn well - he is an expert at generally diplomatic hobnobbing (though it might be hard to argue that he is especially self-reliant, but then again, he is responsible for forming all of his high-end social connections), adores pleasurable living, and recoils from anything unpleasant. It is also a card of self-control, and of utilizing sacrifice, restraint and determination in order to reach your lofty goals of leisure.

I love your Slughorn! He would have been one of my favorite professors, since I also have a fondness for sweets, parties and the finer things in life! :heart:

I enjoy sweets and the finer things in life (parties, less so...) but am not sure I would have been considered cool enough to join in the Slug Club! :p

Absolutely wonderful artwork and summation of Horace Slughorn except he was a Slytherin. Sluggy was even the Head of Slytherin House before and after Snape.

Thanks for the compliment on the drawing! I am well aware that Slughorn is a Slytherin (as are the Malfoys, who also appear on a Pentacles/Ravenclaw card). I explain on my tarot site that the way I decided to select who goes on what card is not necessarily limited to what house a character belongs in, but rather whose personality fits what card best in my opinion. I should probably make a note of that decision here so that people don't get confused or think I'm a complete moron for putting Slughorn on Ravenclaw card or the Marauders on a Hufflepuff card. ;)

Now, I have to look this up and see why my beloved Marauders represent 'puffs!
