THE SENTINEL: Within the world you dwell in, a storm is brewing. It is visible to many, so far and most are completely unaware of its approach. they no longer notice the fall and rise of the air about them, the tightening of the pressure, or the release of rain, for they dwell within their glass towers and no longer feel a part of the elements and the dance between them. But you do, Seeker, and you are aware that there is a force gathering. What its outcome will be, how it will break, and what it will do are still mysteries, but you can prepare for this storm approaching. Others will not listen. Other will see you as “negative” or “fearful” when you inform them of what it is you are preparing for. Regardless, prepare anyway. Watch. And take care of what it is you need to do. This is nothing to be fearful of. It is simply advance knowledge of a storm, and storms can damage, or they can pass by overhead and clear the air. It is wise to prepare. The Sentinel of the Skies, this dragon being, has come to you, and you are invited now to see things from his magical perspective, to go high above the buildings and the everyday, and see the implications of the change that is coming.
This gift of foresight from the friends of the Kitsune will see you well-prepared for the gathering storm, and will give you foresight and enable you to look out for those who will listen. Make wise choices, preserve, take care, observe, repair and prepare, and consider what you will do to be sure you are cared for in the future. Know that when the storm passes, for they all will, you will be standing strong and able to help others, if necessary, and continue with your life. You are being watched over, the Sentinel will stand with you, always.

THE GOLDEN MOMENT: The Golden Moment occurs when, in one sublime convergence, all that has troubled you or caused hardship falls away, and the rewards of all that you have done simply are available to you, in a lovely time of wellbeing, good fortune, and joy. This is a very happy card, one in which we are filled with the light of possibilities, yet we are no longer under the strain of effort and the pressure of former days. The golden moment is to be felt and experienced, as it cannot be created or forced, it is akin to the energy of a holiday with friends, when there is true delight, a lack of complications, and an effortless ease. There is companionship that is soulful, emotional interactions that are true and without conflict and defense, and a sense of community and family around you. The whole world seems to be conspiring to make you happy, happy because you have an inner contentment, a sense of belonging in your own skin, and the people who you love, love you in return. There is a sense of flowering, growth, and coming to a kind of ripeness at this time.
Enjoy the golden moment, for it is sometime fleeting, so allow it to replenish you, nurture you, give you back a true sense of all that is possible in life, and sustain you through the days of change that lie ahead. While there will be other challenges to face in the future, for now, you are held, supported, loved, and cherished by the Universe in ways that are immediately tangible. There is a sense of being rewarded for your own personal noble deeds, which many people may have overlooked, but the Universe has seen, and acknowledged. Your emotional support of others in the past is now returning to you with a universal energy that is supportive, loving and truly appreciative of the beautiful human you are becoming.
