Harry Potter Tarot: The Empress by nasubionna Harry Potter Tarot: The Empress by nasubionna
Molly Weasley
Reasoning: This is the card of mothers. Everything nurturing, caring, healthy, natural, pleasurable, abundant and maternal is represented by this card. It is earthy and warm, full of generosity and love and representing birth and creation. Molly is the quintessential mother, nurturing and protecting not only her children but Harry as well. She represents every desirable aspect of having a mother that Harry never got to experience.

In a traditional tarot deck, this is the Empress.


Notes
This card was fun. I kind of wanted to style her kitchen after kitchens I grew up in, my mother and grandmothers - lots of orange and warm 1970's fashionable Muggle colors, heehee! Hence, the orange countertop. :) Those are carrot slices magically floating into the pot, by the way....

Molly is the ideal person for this arcana. others may choose McGonagall (as covered mother), but Molly has absolute maternal feelings towards Harry. and it shows in every book. But nowhere better than where IOM "Order of the Phoenix" (in dispute with Syrius)

I'm glad you agree.  I never considered McGonagall, but I can understand now that you suggest it.

Dear Nasubionna. I will analyze each your Arkana. And will tell you what I think of your decision. At first element to your assignment: I would have so decided. As for Ravenclaw, had this house, get the pentacle because the others had already taken ... I'll take the Arkana so how did you draw up in your gallery, and not only looking for who "the fool", then "the magician" ... represents. But I hope that until I arrived at your last presentation, you are also with "the deck" finish. I think that the idea will be a good help in order Harry Potter (and his world) continue with us, lives and develops. Because, by mixing the "cards" arise other events can help.

Thank you for your comments!  I do hope to still finish this deck… life has been busy and I have so many things I want to draw!  But hopefully more HP cards will be drawn soon.

I love Molly! I agree with everything that you say in the notes and I love the 1970's muggle kitchen (reminds me of the original kitchen in my parents' house). That expression on her face looks like someone just snapped her photo unawares and she's all "Oh, you!" :) I also like the clock--keeping track of a big family! :rose:
