SAT: a cat in a hat

SAT: a Cat in a Hat

This week is the first week of the Chinese New Year of the Water Dragon, January 2012. The following story took place.

This following should probably go in the page taru however that page has become a theme to itself and this story relates better here, sequentially, given the preceding context. It is an exploration of the Imaginal Realm manifesting as physical experience, which is of course what the Magickal Universe is all about.

"Voodoo Nights" by Pu Sama

This is a tarot, both the card 5 of Cats and 6 of Cats; the difference between the mourning loss of the past that is all 5 cards, turns into the Gain of position and wealth, that is all 6 cards. The key; is that the querent, here represented by the guy in the hat, has accepted Self; the Transition. So you can see why there are death & rebirth symbols in these cards. Cats of course, are what cats are.
I was taught by an arabic tarot scholar how to read the cards; the skull placed around the guys crotch and the cats, symbolize sexual death the green candles and the soul-fire in confusion/mesme of the cats eyes, Life in transition, the hea rt shifting. The twin rings, the twin candles in pairs, its about relationships, the twin pins beneath a single dream-feather of law (maat) is the outcome, if he follows his dream. 2 of the cats face the viewer, so they are Balance and they draw you in. Feline energies here. There is a host more information...
All the imagery spirals around and centers on his Heart. That's what is missing. He looks at the black death feather not the gold dream feather. The decision he is to make changes the world for him. He reconnects and then he becomes the Light. The 5 of flames is the 6 of flames if you include the gold feather as the 6th; the dream of the heart. It is a very empowering card.
Good cartouche are easy to read because the symbolism backs itself up on several layers, and once you know the key, all of the symbols verify that.
(ok so maybe the cats souls are flames too, the story here hides several cards, all wrapped up in the context of the Hope of the moment, found from following the dream of Renewal)
He is connecting or reconnecting to his emotions, soul-searching, getting over Loss, going over the recent past in his mind and emotions. Currently he is dwelling in misery but that will pass and he will be stronger for it. When he shuts his umbrella, black with gold handle; he will have a ha ndle on it and the storm-in-his-being will pass.

I am using the cats to understand the rest of this sequence; many pairs and it is therefore about relationships, this card is crucial, the nexus between 5 and 6 in a ten card suit is important. Whatever he decides here, will be the path of transition from sorrow to abundance (5 to 6).

He gets over himself, it is ego death. Relationships, therefore he gets over his ex partner. Cats, it was a sexy relationship but he reconnects to this and becomes again a sexual being, mastering the power that is currently dead (skull in his hand).

4 of Candles (cats fire); represents the brightness of the world (4 cardinal directions) but notice how all these cats have come in and split the world into 2, which is dualistic; 2 cats eyes going up, 2 cats eyes coming down. It means both he and his ex have split, it means also about Balance being an issue here.

The 3 card of the suit of cats is the trinity which means stability; cats looking away from us, seeing the back of them - so we can be sure that his stable relationship is gone for good.

2 card, is the 2 cats looking toward us, both of which are mesmerizing with their spiraling eyes, he and his ex were hypnotized by each other, she had a big impact on him obviously.

1 card, himself, the Fool, the Ace.

Where he goes from here toward abundance and beyond, the 7, 8, 9, 10 series... ? It is left entirely in the dark with the Hope of Dream, and a pack of cats, to guide him. All of that is contained in the green; there is a window behind him, leading out of this gloom.
He is threadbare but dignified, I like that. 

It is come at a very appropriate time in my life because it describes my life at present time.

This is a video of myself wearing a 'work-in-progress' hand-stitched voodoo gothic hat based on Pu Sama's "Voodoo Nights" painting. The video was made in early February of 2012. I have since dylon dyed the hat matte black. It is made from an old pair of combat trousers and a cheap plastic bread-cutting board from a supermarket (to give body to the rim).

Take note of the eyes in this banner. Take note of the final frame of the video . You will have to watch the video again to see the connection. Look into my eyes...

These are proof:positive signs of a supernatural world, that I deal with on an almost constant basis, apart from where somebody in the material world of speech distracts me from it with some crap. This is why I believe I am mildly Aspergers syndrome and what I believe Aspergers syndrome and schizophrenia and Autism and similar/related conditions, to in fact be; open spirit communion. 

Look at Cats, they have 9 lives because they are Hosts for spirits, supernatural entities, astral projectors, etc. So too are all forms of life, from trees to birds to you if you open your mind to it. It does take some Attention-awareness and concept training, it does take some neurological re-wiring which the spirits do some of, spirit mushrooms can do a lot of too, through the synaesthesia spectrum's. 

Exploring all of this is why I dropped out of straight society, taking seriously the training I have received, sometimes gladly, sometimes have been forced through it because, it is far outside the comfort zone and to understand a lot of the missing connections, to make sense of cryptic clues hidden in the frames of reality, we have to journey far outside our safety zone. This is why depression etc exists; to teach us, to change us, to show us what we are and what we are capable of becoming, as we open ourselves up more to the Truth, by being more true and by being All that we are. 

Religions have formed around these concepts and training and awareness. I seek to avoid that, apart from where wisdom that can help me is contained as part of a religion. Despite a useful and deep buddhist education, I have found so far that Reality most closely matches the Fon and Voudon based cultures, in that their teaching of interacting with spirit world is the closest match I have yet found to my experiences. This is coupled with much advanced development of the Imaginal, creative channels.

The above connection with the cats eye in the painting, video and banner art, are one of several instances I have photo's and video of, where my own eyes change colour and shape during some sort of spirit possession. From people I am attuned with at the time, be they living bodies or spirit, and now also from the Imaginal realms, where fictional representational artwork is manifesting as a spirit. There is a deeper story behind my involvement with black cats and astral possession, which I have written of elsewhere. There is a reason why Thoth-Ankh-Amun who is Pacal Votan's spirit ally is said to be a black panther; its because it is.

Incidentally, I discovered this anonymous artwork on google the very next day...

I am copypasting these blog Pages from the website they were previously stored on. Strange coincidence that today I dragged this picture to my desktop that somebody had posted into Facebook. It somehow relates to this series.

version 2:

Samedi Cats Eyes

This week is the first week of the Chinese New Year of the Water Dragon, January 2012. The following story took place. While it involves spirit possession more than 'death', I have included it here as part of the catechism 'Bis' because it involves and is evidence of voluntary spirit-possession by my ally.

1) photograph of snakeappletree from 2008 entitled 'blue & gold'
2) promotional banner uploaded to this website and to facebook November 2011
3) painting by which I discovered while surfing the web, take note of the cats eyes.
4) video made to show my creative genius, having spent a night making a hat from an old pair of combat trousers, January 2012 (a few days into Chinese new year of the water dragon), several days before waxing half-moon. Take note of my eyes during the final frame of the video.
5) reference link to "Tales of the Black Cat" essay that outlines an event where I met a wild black panther in a forest in Monmouthshire, AUtumn 2008 during darkmoon.
6) Text written to accompany the video/photographs
7) Tarotica; lessons in symbol & Ka

TAROTICA
the question being, are there 5 or 6 cats in the image?

In Tarot;
(Tau-Ru-Thoth, 'the way of seying knowing' - is 'truth') 

5's are about loss, regret, no progress, sorrow from the past,
6's are about acceptance of self, getting through the past-that-drags-us-behind/below, progress, gain, winning through,

So the guy in the hat, Baron Samedi, represents the Gate, from sorrow to gain, through self acceptance, which requires ego death (the letting go of desire)

It should all start to make sense to you now...
