Gemini 1° (May 21)

Friday. It feels like Saturday all day. I will make a lovely beet and goat cheese risotto for dinner. Someone will think it’s the best risotto they ever had. I will let that opinion stand. I dread meeting with FF and am going to keep my distance. The Lt. did call me back but then he didn’t. I am going to focus now on my writing: To unpack all this: When called to greater purpose to be an agent of his own higher-power, or simply faced with the difficult task of forging a new path, personally, professionally or otherwise, Cancer man can be most reluctant, hoping against hope that his current circumstance, with which he has made himself so comfortably at home, will continue to float him in a desired direction, clinging, sometimes delusionally, to the unreality that this will bear out. Instead he may attempt to escape it which only brings stormy emotional weather, landing him in the pit of some leviathan of his own making, forged by his own denial. Acceptance, you see Cancer, is golden nugget you must take away from this tale. It is the key to allowing another tributary of hope to open up and keep you going with the flow, or more accurately flowing with the go. You must keep in mind that endings are beginnings, such that when you hit a so-called dead end, it is in accepting the fact, and processing it thoroughly, that you then get “the go” to discern a stronger, swifter path toward realizing your potential. God being the divine in you, you must seek your own forgiveness for anything and everything that might have played a part in your being swallowed by whatever challenging circumstance in which you find yourself. Only through such acceptance do you build the strength and gain the experience to share this with others, to be a source of some salvation to loved ones, or even acquaintances or strangers, who might find themselves similarly trapped at some point. Avoidance is not your friend, but it will keep landing you in those bellies—remember, it’s one of the body parts ruled by the sign of Cancer—where, it’s up to you how many times, you will be faced with life lessons which, though they may entail disparate details of circumstance, will always be along a larger theme of trusting in some kind of rhyme or reason, if not a divine order. The paradox of being a clinging Crab man who just wants to land successful opportunities and in comfortable situations is that you are called, sometimes many times in life, to re-create yourself and your circumstance, and coping with uncertainty doesn’t come easy for you, while learning to do so is your greatest all-encompassing calling. Hardly anyone sees behind your seemingly insouciant, congenial countenance to the worry, and sometimes acute anxiety, that is churning your own gut, but we know it is there by astrological design. Cancer man often hold on so tightly to everything they’ve already got because of the trepidation, or true terror, that it is going to be swept away at any given moment. This can of course lead to furtive forms of self-medication which of course can quell fear for a time, facilitating a façade of functionality, but any such quick cures soon become the prime ailment. And before you can say Ernest Hemingway, you’ve gone from being the great white hope (an idiom employed to describe someone “destined to succeed in the exteme” with full awareness of its negatively charged connotations which one need eschew) still wet behind the ears, to some self-destructive escapist, spending most of his time, in this case, both literally and figuratively, at sea. Cancer’s is a most sensitive emotional instrument and it does require careful protection. Like a hermit crab, which needs to shed and adopt larger and larger adopted, typically sea-snail, shells as it ages and grows, the Crab man too must cultivate the sense of carrying with him the feeling of being at home wherever he roams. It may be easier said than done, but like they also say in recovery: In order to keep it, you have to give it away.
