“This is a gathering of Lovers.
In this gathering
there is no high, no low,
no smart, no ignorant,
no special assembly,
no grand discourse,
no proper schooling required.
There is no master,
This gathering is more like a drunken party,
full of tricksters, fools,
mad men and mad women.
This is a gathering of Lovers.”
The Cat is part of my Oracle of Mages Pantheon. They represent the “Trickster” in my deck. The role of the Cat is to lead one away from the path they are on, but not necessarily to be lost. The Cat’s form shifts and changes to reflect the inner most thoughts of whomever they are with. Sometimes this leads to embarrassment. Sometimes to revelation. But always with a touch of Chaos.
