On Wanting to Pet Monsters

“At one point in Friedrich Nietzsche’s book *Thus Spoke Zarathustra,* the hero is having a conversation with himself. “You have wanted to pet every monster,” he says. “A whiff of warm breath, a little soft tuft on the paw — and at once you were ready to love and to lure it.”

If I were you, Cancerian, I would regard that type of behavior as forbidden in the coming weeks. In fact, I will ask you not to pet any monsters at all — not even the cute ones; not even the beasties and rascals and imps that have slight resemblances to monsters. It’s time for maximum discernment and caution.

(P.S.: One of the monsters may ultimately become a non-monstrous ally if you are wary toward it now.)”
