CANCER - "I FEEL, THEREFORE I AM."
MARS KEYWORDS: Energy, aggressiveness, competitive, decisive, action, initiative, impulsiveness, adventurous, quick, rapid, physical energy, headstrong, courage, assertiveness and rash.
Mars is in Cancer from June 4, 2017 until July 20, 2017.
Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars (along with the Sun) is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Depending on the sign that Mars is in, it will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Mars in Cancer is actually in its Fall. This is where you do not have all of the tools necessary to help you. This is like someone thrust into a management position 'without' the knowledge, experience or skills necessary to do the job. Or it is like the 6th grader entering college. It's just out of place and you will need some extra help. Mars in Capricorn is in its exalted state (strength), which is why Mars in Cancer (Capricorn's opposite sign) is in its Fall (weakest state).
Since Mars is intensely aggressive and driven, and Cancer is emotional and moody, this placement can make you intensely emotional. I know, this is all you need if you are already an emotional person. Even more, this Mars position in the sign of Cancer has to do with the home and family. Emotions lead straight to anger under this Mars placement. This is where we see domestic violence enter the home, or at the very least, things are being thrown likes dishes or clothes out on the street.
Cancer rules the mother and the home, so this placement creates inharmonious relationships in the domestic sphere. Cancer rules the stomach so there will be many who will experience upsets stomachs and ulcers due to emotional stress.
The best way to channel this intense emotion is directly into a project within the home environment, like the garden or landscaping. Cancer is the gardener and landscaper of the zodiac, which is the perfect channel for this energy since Cancer needs to nurture and nourish. This could also be used to clear junk, build a room addition or make much needed repairs. Having said that, this is THE BEST time for DIY (do it yourself) home projects. If you are stressed out, then reupholster a chair or paint a room. This will also give you the feeling of being in charge or feel as though you are back in charge. Remember, Mars naturally rules the charging ram. SO CHARGE IT appropriately. Click your Sun Sign below and then click on your Monthly Horoscope button to read how Mars is impacting your Sun Sign.
