Why would anyone be interested in astrology for cats?
We all know that we do not “need” to use astrology to chart our daily life or that of our cats, but isn’t it just possible that we might be interested in the 12 sun signs of the zodiac and the corresponding personality traits, as they apply to us, our cats, and the special relationship we have with them?
Astrology is much more than reading newspaper and magazine horoscopes. It can be used as a healing science. Because, for hundreds of years, we’ve known that the seasons result from changes in the distance and angle of the sun’s rays relative to the Earth, and that the phases of the moon affect the tides, the planting of crops, even the success of the fisherman. It isn’t a big leap to suppose these variables affect all living things, including our cats.
One way we can assist our cats in healing and cleansing their own bodies is to look for clues to appropriate natural remedies or methods of healing. The more aware we become of feline traits and actions, the better equipped we’ll be to help our animal companions.
YOUR CAT’S BIRTH SIGN
Beyond what our cat’s breed and / or 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 cat’s birth, this isn’t absolutely necessary for our purposes. Most people don’t know their cats birthday because they have adopted these cats from various sources. This is not important. We merely can stick with the personality traits and if nothing else look a little deeper into their own uniqueness!
If you don’t know your cat’s birthday or exact age, you could simply choose a sun sign to celebrate the day you adopted her or the sign closest to her in personality and likeness.
The care, feeding, and spiritual well-being of our cats can benefit enormously if we simply learn about their astrological archetype.
ASTROLOGY AND THE MODERN CAT
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.
ASTROMEDICINE AND THE SUN SIGNS
The word “astromedicine” is defined as a branch of astrology which studies tendencies of a person or animal toward health and sickness, indicating the periods in which they are most vulnerable to disease and in this case how they relate to the Sun Signs.
Each of the Sun Signs governs a different part of the body, and the sex alternates with each sign. Study the information provided for all 12 signs. Earth colors represent the physical plane, and astral colors are ethereal, or more spiritual in nature.
PISCES, is the twelfth and last sign of the zodiac, and is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter. It represents change and the consciousness of the soul. Pisces is a feminine sign (the sun signs alternate between masculine and feminine with every sign.) This sign governs the arterial blood, red corpuscles, and feet. Cats born under this sign may be susceptible to diseases of the chest. Pisces is a water sign, with an elementary quality of wet cold.
Pisces people and Pisces pets are known to be sweet, gentle, endearing, and magical—part elf, part leprechaun—however, a Pisces cat grabs at your heartstrings, and before you know it, you’re the proud adoptive parent of a Pisces cat.
Pisces are truly sensitive creatures. They see, hear, and smell many things, such as spirits, that we might not know are there.
Pisceans are the keepers of thousands of years of secrets. Tune into them, and you’ll be amazed at what they’ll tell you.
The Pisces cat needs to remain still for periods of time, otherwise, she’s pulled in opposing directions, constantly in conflict. Her sign is symbolized by two fishes: one swimming toward the source of the water and the other toward the sea. The embodiment of the principles of yin and yang!
A Pisces’s tendency to be dreamy makes it easy for her to leave her body. Your Pisces cat may learn this technique early in life to avoid reprimands. She simply tunes out, traveling to realms of safety on the wings of fantasy.
Give her loads of attention and encourage her to be outgoing because if you don’t she’ll be shy forever. But respect her privacy when she’s in one of her mysterious moods, and let her be.
Pisces loves to love, but they get stressed easily. Your Pisces cat seems perfect, although you might be letting her get away with a lot. She’ll charm you into getting her own way, so you may as well surrender. But she’ll never abuse you for this or let you spoil her too much; she’s too loving for that.
Because she makes up her own rules, you must gently let her know what yours are. Use positive reinforcement and avoid the negative.
Pisces cats have their own schedules. They’ll sleep when they want to, eat when they want to, and play when they want to, so you may just have to adjust your schedule to theirs. An early morning wake up call for their Hollywood debut might be difficult for Pisces but their sensitivity always makes them interesting to photograph!
It’s important to protect a Pisces cat from bullies, animal or human, as she doesn’t understand and can’t tolerate aggression or violence.
The music of Chopin or Mozart (both Pisceans) will soothe her.
