GROWTH: You have a natural connection to magick, 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 the 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. Nurture your dreams by day, and by night, let yourself be enriched by dreams.

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 sometimes 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.

LEAVE BEHIND WHAT IS NO LONGER YOU: Sometimes, when we feel we are being what is called by humans ‘true to ourselves’, we are in fact not being true to ourselves at all. At times, we develop habits of self, and who we are has become an old story we tell ourselves and others, over and over again, until it seems natural and inevitable. This, after all, is who we are, we believe. But the truth is now here for you, and some of who you have told yourself you are is about to get a shake-up, and you will find yourself walking through the gateways into a new version of who you are and leaving behind who you once thought you were. This will be a raw time, a time when we feel vulnerable and exquisitely sensitive, yet it is good work that we do when we no longer follow a pattern but seek instead to become who we are next meant to be. But in order for this to take place, something must be left behind before you walk through this gateway.
Choose what feels less true than it ever has before and choose what still feels like a pattern you have attachments to. For once you walk through the gateway adorned with all the attachments and entwinings that ivy can bring, we will cease to make our former self and others and responsibilities our major commitment. Instead, your own undoing and re-becoming will surface and demand its place in this next stage of your life. This is a gate of freedom you walk under. First, though, put down the burden of attachment to who you believe you are – or, more truthfully, who you believe you ought to be. Rebirth yourself, dear friend, and allow the gateway of the realm of the Kitsune to work its magick upon your endless re-imagining of who you are.
