THREEFOLD PROTECTION: When this card comes to you, there is no mistaking the energy around you right now. There is a strong force of protection with you, with three times the power of other forms, and this protection will take place over a threefold period of time – three days, three weeks, three months, three years. There are three situations in which you will be cared for , where unexpected angels will turn up and what could have been harmful will fall away, bringing no menace at all. The beings about you who are protective may seem gentle and even delicate in their form, but have no doubt that they wield powerful energy. Just as this mermaid with her trident guards the realms of the Kitsune and all who dwell within, your own boundaries and borders will be protected.
You will no longer let those in who seek only to make use of what it is you can now do for them. There will be a cessation of the unkind talk that rises from within and, emotionally, in time you will begin to feel more and more content, with a calm and centered self that no longer is tempted to fall into the pain of the past. You will have allies come to you, small kindnesses will be done that reassure you, and you will know exactly where you need to go, and where you need to avoid. Rising up before you now is this mermaid, her oceanic energy strong, her senses alive with vigilance, and her whole being focused on your safety. She stands as the guardian of the seas of the Kitsune realm and likewise, you too will be protected. Feel the strength about you now, and step forward into your life, feeling this trifold safety all about you.

SHARING YOUR WISDOM: There will soon be opportunities for you, dear one, to share your wisdom with others. This wisdom is timeless, but it has come about because of your experience and your knowledge, gathered over lifetimes. It is simple and distilled, uncomplicated and without the desire to seem grand or mystical. It is the kind of wisdom that grandmothers and grandfathers who have travelled close to the veil for a very long time can pass along. It is not resigned, nor is it fierce. There is a calm to it, and a value to it that is precious beyond words. Within this life, friend, you have walked with dragons, loved and lost, been cast out, and risen again and again to so many challenges. Now, as you grow older in years, you can mentor and share, guide and teach, kindly and without ego or the need to impress the others who wish to know how to navigate the dark forests of this lifetime.
Take your time, and speak with those who need help. Share with those who are ready to listen. Keep the magic of the world alive by sharing your belief in the energetic realms and helping others understand that beyond what can be seen with the eyes are powerful ones dwelling just at the edges of our earthly experience – the old ones, the dragons among them. When you share and teach, this dragon will come to you to help you find the words, to help you find the right moment to tell the right story. Fear not that no one wants to hear your words. They are needed, and your stories will be valued and shared and change the lives of those they touch. Speak now, and let the others listen, for you have walked between the worlds, and we long to hear the stories of your adventures.

SUNLIGHT AFTER DARKNESS: After a time of challenges and hurt, there comes a time when the sweet joys of life gently begin to return. They will steal into your life, so quietly that, for many, the signs of this beautiful change will go unnoticed. But with the turn of this card, you now know that the time of new light will be awakening in and around you now. If you tune in, you will begin to see the signs, that there is a sweetness returning, that a smile or two fleets across your lips, that you awaken more easily and greet the day with a sense that today will be a kinder, better place than yesterday. You will notice others responding to you warmly, and slowly, oh so slowly, you will begin to believe that perhaps there is a way forward, and that you will once again find happiness.
It is too soon to speak of being exuberant or enthusiastic – but this tender, very fragile new time will grow when you tend to it, when you encourage it, and when you begin to notice that you are, at last, healing from the wounds life has dealt you. There will be no going back into darkness. This is not temporary. You can trust this, and with your trust, it will gather strength and begin to take root. This sunlit time will grow brighter and become stronger, as you feed it with your belief and gratitude. So, do this, friend, and know that what was will never be again. For now, you are in the time of new light.
