There is no need for a Cat Zodiac because they’re just like humans but with their Moon sign more important than the Sun. Cats are familiars, innately magic.
You know maybe it is the conjunction of asteroid Ubasti (aka Bast – the Cat Goddess) with Pluto in Capricorn at the moment. BUT I was just thinking how taken for granted the usage of the term “cat lady” as a put-down is. We don’t hear anything about “dog man” – even though you could say that there are presumably some single guys with dogs, no? I mean, seriously.
Actually, I think it is deeper than just a stupid double standard – women and cats both share a history of having been denounced by the church as demonic. In olden days cats were even sometimes burned alongside so-called witches at the stake. In Ancient Egypt, when Goddesses were as omnipresent as Gods (Isis and Osiris, for instance), cats were sacred. Could the casual denigration of females who like/have cats but who remain independent have a deeper dimension?
