The Three Birds vs The Explainer
“The red and white have become active against the black [as in] the alchemical process... They are not only working together: they appear to be passing through on another, something not possible in the ordinary physical world. Psychologically, outer harmony may allow for a clearer experience of inner factors and conflicts. When the analysand has achieved a reasonable stability in outer life, the inner life is free to stir. However it may easily lead to outer discord, given the propensity of the human psyche to translate inner conflict into action rather than tolerate the inner tension. At such time the analyst has to work hard to shepherd the impulse to act, returning the energy back to analysis. This is where the creative 'third', as opposed to the duality of black/white, inner/outer comes into play.”
The raccoon and rabbit perhaps can be seen as the red and white (birds) again the black. They are also in a Wonderland type of space, something not possible in the ordinary physical world. The “creative third“ here might be the Cheshire cat who comes into play, he is a paradoxical character who doesn’t follow the rules of duality. He may also represent Jupiter, the god of the sky, which psychologically could translate as consciousness, his thunderbolts symbolizing flashes of enlightenment and the coming together of the unconscious and conscious worlds.
In the Tarot this coming together of the unconscious and conscious worlds is represented by The Magician. It may reverse if intuition is ignored in favor of too much rationalism.
