Mars Transit Cancer

Mars is in sidereal Cancer, the sign of its debilitation, once every 1.5 to 2 years. Mars is here from May 10 to June 30, where it is overwhelmed by emotions and has difficulty managing them. Mars is extra sensitive and easily hurt in Cancer, this is a time when we can get triggered and angered more frequently as frustrating circumstances will arise.

Wherever Mars goes, energy flows! In Cancer the focus is on our emotional states, our mind, our home, property, land, and real estate. Cancer is the sign that represents our mother, beware not to start disputes or conflicts with her.

We also need to make sure that our home is secure, as Pluto in Capricorn casts an opposition unto Mars generating a covert desire for control and manipulation, this can manifest in various forms of course. It can cause war tactics to intensify or become more covert at this time, as well as ego battles! Relationships in general may suffer. We need to take care of our relationship with our mother.

The exact degree of debilitation of Mars is 28 degrees of sidereal Cancer, this happens to be a gandanta degree. We may feel quite overwhelmed during this period, we may feel like our emotions are on a rollercoaster ride, especially if we have planets between 27 degrees of sidereal Cancer up to 3 degrees of sidereal Leo. Be cautious as floodings will occur with lots of rainfall, and much damage to property.

Mars in cancer can certainly give us a spiritual inclination as this house (the 4th house of the natural zodiac) is a Moksha house where we seek spiritual liberation.

Sidereal Leo ascendants need to be careful as Mars transits the house of hidden enemies, while Pluto sits in the 6th house of open enemies and all kinds of troubles. Mars rules your 4th house, make sure your home is secured and properly locked. Don’t get into disputes with anyone, especially your mother.

· May 20 is the exact opposition of Pluto to Mars at 6 degrees, watch out for ego struggles, and be careful who you trust, take care of your home’s security. On this day the Moon is conjunct the Sun and quite dark, which is not auspicious (this is the day after the new Moon in Taurus on May 19). We’ll need to avoid confrontation.

· Mars in Cancer is in Punarvasu from May 10 to the 16

· Mars in Pushya from May 16 to June 9, this can give us a push/pull type of energy, it's important to let things happen on their own rather than pushing certain boundaries.

· In Ashlesha from June 9 to June 30, this is a great transit for acquiring occult knowledge, but not a good time interpersonally, as conflict will be more pronounced. Beware of new medication and its side effect.

· Mars is gandanta in Cancer from June 26 to the June 3o. Then in Leo June 30 to July 6. This is an intense time as I mentioned above. But also an opportune time for self-development and soul growth, of course this usually happens with pain and discomfort.
