I worked in a bookstore when the Harry Potter books came out, and fell in love immediately. I re-read them every July, read the first five aloud to my kids (who said they could finish by themselves, sniffle) and am fairly versed in the Potter-verse. For the next installment of Pop Goes the Tarot – Harry Potter. OH – and because I couldn’t stop, I went ahead and picked characters for the Minor Arcana, too.

I chose a character for each of the Minor Arcana as well. I do have a reason for each of these, and will go back to add them as time allows.
