THE GIFT OF CONNECTION: When we gather together, our vulnerabilities can be raw and feel exposed. Yet, when we gather under the influence of this card, we know we are safe, and something beautiful will come of our soul’s connections. When this card comes to you, Seeker, you know the Kitsune have blessed you with the ability to create harmony and connection between those who seem too different, too diverse to truly know each other. This card shows you the way to create a connection, to bring about harmony in a situation where several people who seem unable to get along are thrust together by fate and destiny. Through the wisdom and kindness that resides within you, and the fearless way in which you are truthful, you are able to weave people into groups that have a higher purpose and that can together create something greater than they could have achieved as individuals.
When this card comes, the most powerful quality that you possess at this time is that of universality, of being able to see through what we seem to be and understand who we are on a soul level. This brings about a sense of safety, respect, and affection between people, and, in time, this will grow and blossom. This is a time of peacefulness, growth, affection, and harmonious relationships, ones that are truthfully so! These are not forced, nor are emotions or reactions suppressed or denied, these are genuinely affectionate bonds. The group energy created means each person can explore who they are without fear of condemnation or misunderstanding. This is often the card that appears with counsellors, therapists, truly gifted teachers, and those who bring people into circle with each other.

A TIME TO WALK ALONE: There is such sadness in misunderstanding. But know now that it will only last a season. When we share who we truly are with others, and especially with those we love, there are few things more harsh than a lack of acceptance, or a misunderstanding due to ignorance, fear, or the failure to truly listen. When this card comes to you, there may be a sense that you have attempted to reveal who you are, the witch within, and she has been met with disbelief and scepticism. It is, of course, as it should be, that others are free to react as they do. And if we were without any of the humanity that we are here to learn, it would matter little. But to you, it has mattered, and there is a sense of rejection and abandonment that comes with this card, just as this witch has been cast forth from her own people, as they have feared and been taught to reject people like her.
Know that there are many people in this world who feel that there is only one way to the Divine, and they have embraced fearful dogma, as it is simpler and seemingly safer than walking the hard road of authenticity and commitment to our magical path. Know that this time will pass and soon, there will be breakthroughs and friendships that emerge from true understanding. The sense of walking alone in a world growing colder will not last, and in time, you will know that the separation that took place was in so many ways a bright blessing. For you are meant to discover, and you need the space, the time, and the opportunities to become who you are truly meant to be. You are not lost, you are wandering, and as you do, you will come upon the path you are meant to tread. Till that time, the Kitsune will walk with you, so you are never alone.
