Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

Dark Goddess Spread, Card 6, Perspective

My card for ‘Perspective’ in the Crone spread is pulled already for two days. The card gives the ‘big picture’ in which all the other card will fit in. My card is Two of Swords from the Fairytale Tarot. The card is based on a fairytale in which a princess sits on a glass mountain. Suitors must climb the mountain to be able to marry her. It is a card of control and also of protection and introspection. I love the picture of the glass mountain. I have never drawn it, but I know this card from the homepage of Tarotpassages. 


The big picture is that I am reserved, not wanting to go forward, or not being able to go forward, needing rest, protection and introspection. I have a twisted knee, so I move (and sit...and stand) with some stiffness.
