im laying down, everything is dark, and a female spirit floats above me. shes newspaper thin white and black lining surrounding her. shes thanking me for accepting and integrating her and loving me and floats away. then i am laying on a huge fluffy sheepskin rug. theres a fire place going. and a large tiger walks in the room... walking beside where i lay.. he is purring and flicks his tail as he crosses my path almost to leave... and i ask him telepathically not too. he obliges... and lays beside me. holding me. so warm. so erotic. i lift my arm to caress his inner thigh and the close i get to his engorged penis, the more he starts to look like a man. but his tiger stripes stay. we embrace. and its the deepest most loving yang hold ever. i close my eyes and our energies are swirling together to a slowly climbing orgasm but there is no physical penetration. "have you felt so complete?" ... "not quite like this..."
Two interpretations of the tiger have been offered which are easily
reconciled: ‘It is associated with Dionysos, and is a symbol of wrath and cruelty’
(8); ‘In China, it is symbolic of darkness and of the new moon’ (17). For darkness
is always identical with the darkness of the soul, and corresponds to that state
which the Hindus term tamas and which falls within the general symbolism of level, and also denotes the unbridled expression of the base powers of the instincts. Now, in China the tiger seems to play a rôle comparable with that of the
lion in African and Western cultures: both animals—like the dragon—take on two
different characters—as the wild beast and as the tamed animal. This is what lies
behind the tiger as an allegorical expression of strength and valour in the service of
righteousness. Five mythic tigers together constitute a symbol which is invested
with the same meaning as the tetramorphs in Christian tradition, in so far as they
are the defenders of the spatial order against the forces of chaos. The Red Tiger
reigns in the south, his season being summer and his Element fire; the Black Tiger
reigns in the north—winter is his season, and his Element water; the Blue Tiger
reigns in the East, in the spring and amidst vegetation; the White Tiger predominates in the west, in autumn and among the metals; and, finally, the Yellow Tiger
(solar in colour) inhabits the earth and reigns supreme over all the other tigers.
This Yellow Tiger is located in the ‘Centre’, as the Emperor was situated in the
heart of China and as China lies at the centre of the world (13). This quaternary
division plus the centre as the fifth Element is, as Jung has shown, of archetypal
significance in the symbolism of situation. When the tiger appears in association
with other animals, his symbolic significance varies according to the relative
status of the animals within the hierarchy: for instance, the tiger struggling with a
reptile stands for the superior principle, but the converse applies if it is locked in
combat with a lion or a winged being.
