Cat's Eye Tarot doesn't pull its punches with today's card!
Left on a pier, with a cage and an "Alley Cat" bowl, this black-and-white charmer's luck seems to have run out. A woman walks away, taking another cat with her. Who will the remaining cat miss more, the human or the other cat? And what were they to one another - siblings, parent and child, friends, lovers? The cat's pose speaks of despondency and mourning. Does the cat left behind live on the houseboat with the woman's ex? Does this mark the end of more than one relationship? If that's the case, I guess the equivalent of the ignored upright cups in more traditional versions of this card might be the fact that the cat and the houseboat owner still have each other...
Today my Dear One and I are going to the cinema and then out for a meal, just the two of us. I feel a bit bad leaving Big Boy behind. Still, on Sunday we took him to the cinema and only got to watch half of "Puss in Boots" because he decided he was bored. No idea why, as we thought it was brilliant, and plan to get the DVD as soon as it comes out to see the rest. Anyhow, I see Big Boy in this card, feeling left behind and left out. Hopefully, that's not really the case. He'll be with someone he knows and loves. Maybe he'll have more fun than us... Though we're going to see Sherlock Holmes: action and humour, with a tarot reader as well as Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law - pretty close to perfect in my eyes!
I am grateful for excellent people to help take care of Big Boy.
