Meet new black kitty.
Gorgeous, still very skitterish around me.
Grey kitty warmed up first.
Food lady is nice.
Seems cat dreams are in the air of late…I dreamed of a herd of cats at my mother’s house, I picked a blue one. Then soon after a reader commented about her dream of a black street cat – so this cat post was born. Yes, another cat post. Venus IS in Leo after all.
Check out my previous post about Norse goddess Freia, asteroid 76. Two sacred cats (gifts from Thor) pulled her Valkyrie chariot onto fields of battle where she collected men slain in war. She is the goddess of love, a powerful protectress, a nature deity.
Bastet, or Ubasti, Egyptian cat goddess is asteroid 4257. Ubasti is the warrior goddess who protected the lower Nile, the Pharaoh and Ra (Sun God). She has been called upon since the Second Dynasty for blessings of fertility and protection from thieves. She is also associated with scent, or pleasant ointments. When her temple was excavated they found the mummified remains of over 300,000 cats. Bastet is the mild eastern sun associated with spring. Her name comes from the root bes, meaning fire. She embodies qualities of both the sun and moon – she draws opposites together.
Ubasti in the natal is a place of fertility, sensuality, sexuality and it is where you are a fierce protector of that which you hold sacred, particularly family and home.
Check out asteroid Sphinx 896. The Sphinx is a keeper of secrets, a guardian with the body of a lion, the wings of a griffon (in Asia), and the face of a human. The Sphinx posed riddles to travelers on the road to Thebes, if they answered wrong, she devoured them.
Sphinx in your chart is where you must face challenges, where you guard yourself, your life. Sphinx is also where you guard secrets, mysteries and knowledge which will only be revealed as the time is right. Those of you familiar with Edgar Cayce know the Hall of Records is reportedly buried under the paw. More here.
Gorgeous image, yes ?
Egyptian lion goddess Sekhmet is asteroid 5381. Sekhmet is a destroyer goddess, derived from sekhem, or power, and khem which means dark chaos that gives birth to light.
In the natal chart, Sekhmet represents the transformation of death into wisdom and enlightenment – she is the scorching sun, she is the renewal gained from suffering, the fire that burns the enemy. She is healing through death and rebirth akin to Plutonic and phoenix energies. She is power, magic and strength.
This image amuses me, my 8th house Leo stuff squares biggie Neptuner on 11th.
I have a plethora of ye olde skool dream interp books, most of which harp on about how cats are bad luck which I don’t buy for a second.
If you like cats, they are good friends, allies and totems – then dreams of them brings good luck. To my fancy, dreaming of cats indicates Leo stuff such as positivity, self-reliance, creative problem-solving, romance, fun and BIG LUCK.
Curious cats, Sphinx is conjunct my Moon, opposite Sekhmet & Bastet which conjunct my Neptuner.
peace out kitty cats
