I have picked three names to do readings with the Mystical Cats Tarot cards! They are:
who will get the Shield of Sekhmet spread, which involves three cards, and
3. Truffles of Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows, who will have the Nine Lives spread, a nine-card, lifetime reading. Truffles, my human wasn’t able to finish your reading before leaving for BlogPaws, so you will have to wait until next week. But Carlos and Katie, I have your readings now!
As I said, the Shield of Sekhmet spread is three cards:
The first card tells you what weakens you.
The second card tells you what strengthens you.
The third card tells you how you can best use your power.
Carlos, you asked, “I would like to know if I’ll ever be a manly mancat or will I have this skinny and sleek boyish figure for the rest of my days!” Let me shuffle the cards.
Here are the three cards I have chosen, with the help of feline spirit!
1. The 4 of Sky, reversed
2. The 10 of Earth
3. The 3 of Sea
Note that none of these cards are from the Major Arcana or are kitty court cards, which indicates to me that perhaps feline spirit is aware that Carlos’ question is a rather frivolous one. Nevertheless, there is much wisdom here.
What weakens you, according to the 4 of Sky, is denial. The sword cards are cards of battle and conflict. Here you see a cat withdrawing from this tumultuous lifestyle into solitude. What I believe this means for you, Carlos, is that you need to get real, and know your true nature. Manly mancat or boyish kitty? It is a choice only you can make!
What strengthens you, in the 10 of Earth, is the happiness you feel in your home and your willingness to share its comforts. This does not mean you have to let a bunch of other cats move in with you, but do be aware that keeping company with others will keep both body and mind active. Never hog your space — or your food — and you will always be sleek and boyish in spirit, even as you grow ever manlier.
Carlos, your final card is the 3 of Sea — the card that tells you how to best use your power. It emphasizes the lessons of friendship hinted at in the 10 of Earth — and suggests that your pals need not be the same species as you. Friends can be anybody and come from anywhere. Have that fluidity of spontaneous fun, and it will never matter where the physical takes you. It is spirit that matters.
Now, Katie, here are the cards I pulled for you. I will say that they are quite a bit more powerful than Carlos’.
1. The Floating Cat
2. The Ace of Fire
3. The Sky King
The equivalent to the Floating Cat in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck is the Hanged Man, and what this means for you, Katie, is that you are quite a brilliant and inspired kitty with an unusual way of looking at things. Since the Floating Cat pops up as the card indicating what weakens you, I must say that sometimes you let these wonderful characteristics get the better of you, and you lose perspective — what is literal or actual and what lives solely in spirit? We kitties in general get those mixed up a lot, but you more than other cats tend to do this, as your imagination is even more active than most.
The Ace of Fire strengthens you. On top of being imaginative, you are also very passionate! You have a lot of energy and are a force to be reckoned with when you have set your mind on something. A kitty like you cannot be denied… as your human probably knows.
The final card, the Sky King, tells you how you can best use your power. As I mentioned earlier, the Sky cards symbolize a warrior clan, but its king is neither rash nor cruel. He has the ability to pull back and look at the whole picture. That way he is able to use his considerable power for good. This card is urging you to take your gifts of imagination and passion, and temper them with rational thought in order for you to achieve all that you are truly capable of. Since we kitties do not care about rational thought, Katie, I suggest you leave this part up to your human.
I hope you liked my readings!
