Cat's Eye Tarot is full of attitude.
An elegant siamese, his mouth is open to hiss or yowl at whatever poor unfortunate has aroused his wrath. At any moment he might turn and pounce, or just take a swipe with a seemingly dainty paw that hides strong, sharp claws. Woe betide any bird who comes to taunt him, for he is agile and fast, willing to take risks in pursuit of his goal. He won't just defend his territory, but is also quick to go on the offence. He stands on a wooden deck, with a view out over the surrounding landscape - a good vantage point.
I have several situations today where I need to be diplomatic. So, for me, I think this card is actually about what to beware of. I can sometimes slip into this kind of energy, but that's not always very productive. Rather than snapping at someone, or expecting them to have the necessary information and be able to apply it quickly and effectively, I shall try to be calm and patient, to communicate clearly yet gently.
I am grateful that I can choose not to express all my thoughts and criticisms. I am grateful for the reminder to think and express myself positively.
