THE AWAKENING: Sleep no more, soul child. The time for rest is done, and now you are awakened to action by the great golden Dragon of the Day, ancient friend to the Kitsune. In the realms unseen by most humans, forgotten by nearly all humans, there are great dragons who stand at the edge of the day’s birth and death, helping all within the realm to arise and awaken to the blessings of each day. The great golden dragon within this card heralds the awakening of the day, and when this card come to you, you know you are being called to arise and awaken to a new day within your life. You are called to awaken to your own belief and your own knowledge, to the truth of your own soul, and to rise up and embrace it all, to know your worth and your beauty and to shine it out through the day before you.
Treat this as a new time, even when it contains old stories, as it is still a great and beautiful opportunity to take all that is within you and make the very most of all that is. When this card comes to you, it is a reminder, too, that there are pasts of you which are asleep or resting, dormant, and under-loved, underlived, and they must now be awakened. Think now, Seeker, on the dreams and wishes you sent to sleep over the years. Let them now gently awaken, one by one, as the days before you unfold, so that they come to life again, not as dreams and ideas any longer, but as events and experiences that become your life. Awaken to your power. Awaken to your sleeping soul. And arise like this great Dragon of the Day and call out to the world that you are coming into it this day, fearlessly, ready to live fully and embrace the adventures of this gift called life.

GROWTH: You have a natural connection to magic, and at this time, you are growing in your powers. Some of these powers are very new and very young, and it will be your task, moving forward, to nurture one in particular, because this seemingly humble beginning has great promise and many gifts to offer you. This tender new beginning is goddess-given to you, and this goddess of the Kitsune realms is one who helps seekers to access their own personal strengths and hidden talents, and climb towards the sun, their powers growing in strength all the time.
Like the ivy, your talents will grow, you will climb, and the light will be reached. You are to nurture these newfound talents and strengths and whatever sweet new beginnings are about you, and strengthen them so that they can be sustained for many years to come. You will be taken on many an adventure with the growth of this ability, and so many opportunities will be created. Don’t let go of your dreams, hold on, climb high, and grow, and seek and find. Always reach for the light, and know that as you grow, you make everything beautiful. Find strong people to be around, and learn from their endurance and fortitude.
