Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

Dark Goddess Spread Card 4, Fairy Godmother

Position 4 of the Dark Goddess spread (by Christine Jette from her book Tarot for All Seasons) is called Peacefull Endings. This card is related to the information from card two and three: patience and acceptence. The card shows what to accept and realease in love. My card here is the Empress, shown as the benovelent fairy godmother in the fairytale Cinderella. 

                

In older versions of this tale the fairy godmother is the dead mother who is watching over her child. This is a card of motherhood, showing me that my role as a mother is changing now my daughter grows older.
