- The Nine Tails Fox is a Legendary Demoness, known in Indian, Koranic, Chinese, Thai and Japanese Spiritual Cosmology, Legends and Myths.
- Believed sent by the Heavens, the Nine Tails Fox (in the Animal Form) was seen as a sign of Good Fortune, Peace and Favorable Luck ahead. During the Han Dynasty, it was seen as the Protector of Royal Blood.
- But the Nine Tails Fox is also recounted in legend as a Potent Magician and Shape Shifter; able to enter and possess the physical bodies of others, to change its shape and form, a Master of Illusion. It's ability to become male or female to attract the opposite sex and seduce them into the bed has gained Legendary Status in all Cultures where tales of it's existence have arisen.
- "The Fox Spirit is an especially prolific shapeshifter, known variously as the Húli Jīng (Fox Spirit) in China, the Kitsune (Fox) in Japan, and the Kumiho (Nine Tailed Fox) in Korea. Although the specifics of the legends vary, these Fox Spirits can usually shapeshift, often taking the form of beautiful young women who attempt to seduce men, whether for mere mischief or to consume their bodies or spirits.
- With Amulet, Icon and Occult devotees, the Nine Tail Fox is considered an impenetrable Defense against Black Magic. Taking the form of a beautiful, seductive woman, she is believed to have very strong Psychic Powers and quite willing to exert her powers with force. This is one reason why this Prai Deva (Ghost Goddess) is considered so potent, because she is so 'Hian’ (in Psychic Fury), that she will need little coaxing to reverse back to anyone who sends any evil eye magic, curses or spirit assistants to harm her caretaker and patron.
- During the Han dynasty, the development of ideas about interspecies transformation had taken place in Chinese culture. The idea that non-human creatures with advancing age could assume human form is presented in works such as the Lunheng by Wang Chong (27-91). As these traditions developed, the fox's capacity for transformation was shaped.
- In one ancient myth, Yu the Great encountered a white nine-tailed fox, which he interpreted as an auspicious sign that he would marry Nüjiao. In Han iconography, the nine-tailed fox is sometimes depicted at Mount Kunlun and along with Xi Wangmu in her role as the Goddess of Immortality. According to the first-century Baihutong (Debates in the White Tiger Hall), the fox's nine tails symbolize abundant progeny.
- Describing the transformation and other features of the fox, Guo Pu (276-324) made the following comment:
- "When a fox is fifty years old, it can transform itself into a woman; when a hundred years old, it becomes a beautiful female, or a spirit medium, or an adult male who has sexual intercourse with women. Such beings are able to know things at more than a thousand miles' distance; they can poison men by sorcery, or possess and bewilder them, so that they lose their memory and knowledge; and when a fox is thousand years old, it ascends to heaven and becomes a celestial fox."
