Seven of Wands
Are you defending your position, or are you the one causing trouble? The cat in the tree may be trying to avoid the chaos below. It may be on the defense trying to escape aggression. On the other hand, it just may be that the cat's retreat to the high branch is nothing more than an act of complete and utter defiance.
When the Seven of Wands appears, you may need to consider if you are defending your beliefs because you know you are right, or are you merely looking for a way to validate your position so that you can feel better about where you stand?
The Seven of Wands may also indicate that others view your station as weak and will attempt to challenge you. If your convictions are secure and your position allows you to see more than those around you, hold firm as you are the one with the advantage.
