If you want to be as happy as I am, you must let go of this human notion that you’re a victim of the planets. All I keep hearing is how it’s going to be a rough month because “the planets are going crazy.”
“The energy is out of whack this month!” cries my servant-guardian Jessica, who reads the monthly horoscope and despairs. Several planets were in retrograde recently, and there’s an eclipse coming that does something bad, I forget what.
I don’t know why she bothers talking to me about it. Food fills my bowl no matter what Saturn is doing, and I’ve never had issues communicating my needs during a Mercury retrograde. All I know is today.
Today, I feel fantastic! I’m eating, chasing the ping pong ball around, napping and making demands. I’m not worried about the future, or trying to navigate the unpredictable currents of emotion triggered by the solar system.
I’ve often wondered, if my servant Jessica is adversely affected by a planet traveling backwards through space, why aren’t I? I don’t feel any different. Perhaps it is because cats, as superior beings, don’t need to endure the sad little trials of the humans.
I am my own master and a slave to nothing and no one. The planets will do what they do. The tides will rise and fall according to the gravity and distance of the moon. But you and I… we are not victims of the planets. Remember that we chose this, my precious human.
Always, we have the power of choice. After every human lifetime I experienced, I got to choose what I wanted to do next. And one day, upon becoming an enlightened master, I chose to incarnate as a cat. It was the wisest choice I ever made.
