Mondays With Merlin and Feline Tarot Wisdom.
You asked for it, so here I am, Merlin, dishing out a dollop of Feline Tarot Wisdom with a dash of sass. If the shoe fits, you’re welcome and if it doesn’t, it may fit later this week. This week’s tarot card #12 is The Hanged Man which looks scarier than it is. It’s the card of surrender, not of giving up but letting go of ego, of expectations. You know, the human condition. To some people that is scary! I’m not saying it’s a picnic (I do love picnics) but it’s usually not nearly as horrible as you’ve imagined. It’s a dance, a one-legged jig, if you will, between knowing when to hang on during a bumpy time or letting go. If you hang on too tight, it hurts more.
Pull the ripcord of your life’s parachute and bloody hell, let go. Scary for three seconds and then exhilarating. Whee…
Her favorite quote is, “Life is for pleasure and leisure Darlings. Everything else is a waste of time.”
Trust me, she has no trouble letting go. If you need a tutorial in letting go, watch your cat wriggle with abandon in a sun puddle.
My music pick which captured the mood SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO a classic punk anthem by The Clash. Cool retro website. The song lyrics are about a guy being jerked around by a girl, “…Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An’ if I stay it will be double..”
It’s a classic Hanged Man dilemma and there is a profound sentence in the lyrics providing a deeper clue. If you’re a seeker, you’ll find it. If you’re ready, you’ll find two or three.
I leave you with the most important piece of advice I can give.
This was from our Instagram account. We play with different things there but find it annoying when images shared on different platforms look good on some and poopy on others. Cest la vie.
And we’re inviting anyone with a black cat to post a pic of their cat on anywhere on our Facebook page for consideration in our Friday Feature. If you’re not on Facebook, email it to [email protected] with Friday Feature in the subject line. If you haven’t checked out our new Black Cats Tell All backer rewards on Kickstarter, please do at Black Cats Tell All. It’s furry good thing and tax-deductible too!
Have an good week. Don’t let anyone mess with you. I still have my claws!
