Taurus 29° (May 19)

The reports from Wellfleet were slanted as expected. I will leave a message for the Lt. and hope for the best. Lawyer says that he and opposing counsel will visit—eek gads I hope so. We will go see a house in town today. Beautiful location horrible abode. One last night of fattening food before I get back on the health wagon. It is definitely time. Anyway I have my work and I’m leaning into love it, Today’s progress: And there is something quite Après moi, le déluge about the Cancer man’s mindset, that is to say he can be so nihilistic as not concern himself with whatever happens after he’s “gotten his” out of life and is gone. In the film Force Majeure a family of four are on an alpine skiing holiday and, as they are lunching outside, an avalanche occurs. The father runs to save himself, leaving his family at the table—the avalanche doesn’t actually reach them—and he has to deal with the emotional cracks in his marriage and family that ensue. If such a move were to be busted by any man in the zodiac it would likely be the self-protective Crab, who, to be fair, isn’t necessarily premeditatedly so. A tendency for escapism, whether real or by way of his imagination, is part of the Cancer man’s emotional estate. Neither here nor there: just as the fourth astrological house rules both one’s home of origin and that which one creates for oneself—the dynamic of passage befitting this cardinal-water sign of crabs, arks and Moses baskets carried along by rising floods or rushing rivers—it also governs property, inheritances, customs, mores, folkways, family traits, heirlooms, and other such things that get passed down or along. These attributes are in no way divorced from the fact that the fourth house also rules the underlying foundations of one’s own family, ancestry, as well as cultural identity and stability, patriotism, and the like. Heritage is important to the Cancer male, who typically reads as a fairly traditional fellow. He tends to go with the collective flow in his aesthetic tastes and fashion choices, for example, rarely one to be labelled extreme in any sense of the word. His is a wide appeal; and his path is one of least resistance, despite his zeal and hustle to realize goals and dreams and fulfill his palpable promise. Just as he sets off early on his life path, one of the least deliberating of lands, he likewise wants to land himself the opportunity to dig into a career situation, say, where he can grow and prosper. He isn’t one to jump from one situation to another in a professional ascent—he doesn’t climb, he clings, getting his claws into positions with which he can make the most over time. As one would expect from this most emotionally sensitive sort, comfortability in environment is key to his success and happiness. This resident of the fourth house must feel at home even while out bringing in some bacon. He seems on the whole affable, unassuming, anything but calculating, but don’t let that disarming character fool you. Beneath his convivial half smile and laughing eyes lies a shrewd, competitive character who will insinuate himself into desired positions of power and influential social spheres.
