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 connections between those who seem too different, to 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.

Transcendence: There are times in our lives when we are mired down with problems and issues, and we can feel as if we are swimming through thick, unyielding mud. We feel stuck and bound, completely captured by dilemmas that come with this earthly experience, and we can lose our sense of Spirit, of the Divine, and of the heavenly self. This can be the exact moment at which we receive a visitation from the extraordinary Celestial Fox, this heavenly one who has transcended the earthly realms and become one of the galaxy’s messengers. Kitsune at this time are so powerful they can become planetary bodies, new stars, or even a second moon.
In this card, celestial energies are being delivered to you so you can remember that, while you are in this lifetime human and there is much to learn, there is also the heavenly part of you. This part, which is celestial and unbound and free, can help you at this time to gain perspective and to know you will transcend whatever problems you are working with, and come to a place where your own divinity can come to the fore again. This is a strong message from the realm of the Kitsune to never lose your hope and belief in your own soul – for all of us, there will be times when we feel we have lost that beautiful sense of the Divine, and with it, our joy can slowly dissipate.
But know this – you are more than your job, your role, your back account, your age. You are a transcendent being, and you are galactic as much as you are earthly – and you will now begin to move through the mundane issues which have blocked your way to feeling the joy that is inherent in your nature. You are celestial. You are one of the heavenly beings. You are a divine one. And with time, and with knowledge, and with the blessing of the visitation of this transcendent fox, you too will transcend the beliefs and the limitations of the physical self and remember once again the cosmic origins of your soul. The result will be that you can live this lifetime knowing you are both star and stone, celestial and terrestrial, and your time on this planet, in this form, is just one of the lifetimes you will experience, not only here, but within the cosmos. Take a higher perspective, dear one – for you are blessed by the very stars, and their energies now pour down upon you.

Acceptance: Accepting “What is’ is a powerful way to step into your own creative force and be a part of what will be. For change is weaving its way within the world of the Kitsune, and while there is sadness at the fading of one season, there is a sense of gratitude for all that has been. Instead of lamenting deeply, this Kitsune shows us how to gracefully open our hands and let go of what now must pass. This passing is not forever, it is simply for a time. But we are reminded with this card to allow whatever needs to leave now to go, and to stay within the moment of change and appreciate its gifts. Sense the change all about you, and allow yourself to become a part of the change – to be gracious and graceful in the acceptance, which is no passive thing, no weakness, and truly, not so much a surrender as an acknowledgement of the passing. It is presence, and recognition, and allowance.
This card can be of assistance to those of you who are unable to see the blessings and gifts within the transition, and to those of you who are rushing through the change, hoping rushing will help you to cope. Take your time to savor the passing, just as this Kitsune is admiring and immersing themselves in the gifts of the autumn maples. Know that the acceptance of this imperman- ence brings a deep and lasting sweetness, a beauty that can uplift and strengthen you, and a place where you can now decide what it is you will change within yourself to match the change all about you. Take time to make adjustments to your own self – explore yourself and know what it is that can be enhanced and what can be left behind. There is a harvest to come at the end of this letting go, and the harvest will grant to you abundance, according to the depth of your own willingness to embrace the cyclic nature of this heavenly life upon Earth.
