How to apply this knowledge in practice?
It is important to understand that only theoretical knowledge is never good. Good is its knowledge, which is of practical meaning. In life, one needs to learn how to understand things, why they happen. In numerology, we know the notion as nimitta. In vedic knowledge or Sanaatana Dharma we know the notion of Nimitta Shastra - knowledge of signs. Looking around, we can always see the various warnings, signs sent to us by God. It is our duty in this life to learn to read these signs and understand the directions.
In many cultures, black cats are considered to be bad sign. Look at the planet symbolized by a cat - it is Ketu. We ask ourselves the question - Ketu is a good or bad planet? Good or bad we mean subjectively, depending on whether it brings good or bad karma. Ketu is the planet that carries most 99.9% negative Karma from past lives. Here we come to the conclusion in each case. I would be cautious about the next steps, seeing sign of Ketu (7) on my way.
In this way, we look around and analyze which planets are warning us. Each planet has its own energy, the specifics of its operation, so we know what kind of sign it is.
