You may enjoy using astrology to chart your daily life, but you may also be interested in the 12 sun signs of the zodiac and their corresponding personality traits as they apply to us, our cats, and the special relationship we have with them.† Astrology can, therefore, be used as a healing science. We might just like to refer to it as ďAstromedicine.”
For hundreds of years, weíve known that the seasons result from changes in the distance and angle of the sunís rays relative to the Earth, and that the phases of the moon affect the tides, the planting of crops, and of course the hormonal cycles of women.† It isnít a big leap to suppose these variables affect all living things, including our cats.
The only way we can truly assist our cats in the healing and cleansing of their own bodies is to look for clues in their symptomatic picture that can help guide us to appropriate natural remedies or methods of healing.† The more aware we become of feline traits and actions, the better equipped weíll be to help our animal companions.† Astrology can be quite helpful in this regard.
Beyond what their genetic makeup imparts, the personalities among kittens in a litter tend to be quite similar, even when taking into consideration differences in sex and pecking order.† Perhaps this is because they are born close together in time and usually share the same sun sign and several other planetary positions.
Though the serious astrological practitioner would develop a natal horoscope based on the exact time and place of the catís birth, this isnít absolutely necessary for our purposes. The care, feeding, and spiritual well-being of our cats can benefit enormously if we simply learn about their astrological archetype. If you donít know your catís birthday or exact age, you could choose a sun sign to celebrate the day you adopted her or the sign closest to her in personality and likeness.
Throughout the ages, people have applied astrological principles to every aspect of their physical and spiritual lives. In much the same way, you can explore the 12 sun signs to help you augment your relationship with your cat.
Right now we are entering the sign of Cancer so letís explore the personality of the Cancer Cat!
