MARS IN CANCER
Mars is Masculine energy, action, raw testosterone, the warrior, desire, sex, competition, rape, anger, aggression, initiator, Ruler of Aries and Scorpio.
CANCER is the Mother, womb, Feminine, the Goddess, Mother Mary, Demeter, Gaia, Ceres, all Mother Goddesses, water, wells, nurturing, nourishment, emotions, security, home, children receptivity, Ruled by the Moon.
For this 7 week period, Mars in Cancer means we are ruled by our tummies, home cooking and comfort foods are a must. Donate to a food bank especially if you don’t have children or help older women or mothers in general. We desire emotional security and safety. A nest and home. We can also be very defensive emotionally too, stuffing our emotions and putting on a hard shell of armour, that infamous “stiff upper lip”.
Mars in Cancer symbolizes the Warrior returning to the home fire of the Great Mother to defend and protect her with all of his defences. He can take off his armour and nurture his wounds and feel the love and safety of home and family. Because of Covid many of us have lost loved ones, parents and children have lost mothers and parents. Many of us are isolated and alone and Mars in Cancer will make us feel rather helpless and weak. Mars is courage and initiative. We need to fight for our emotions and defend our feelings.
When Mars is in Cancer it’s time to connect with your passion for nurturing, protecting and feeding the children. This means your inner child especially. But all children. Sex trafficking of children is a huge issue. Do something to support this.
MARS is considered weakened in such a feminine watery sign. Yet Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has Mars in Cancer but it also makes sense as he is a martial or warrior of water.
In 2021 Mars is moving OUT OF BOUNDS from March 21 to May 24.
When Mars is OUT-OF-BOUNDS or OOB it means that Martial energy is wild and uncontrollable. KT Boehrer who came up with the definition and declinations for OOB planets says Mars OOB is “a fighter, daring, energetic, curious, venturesome, often attracted to a career associated with an element of danger.” A negative Mars OOB is furious tempered, angry and violent.
This 2 month period will have us feeling angry and frustrated about being forced to stay home because of Covid. Mars in Cancer is repressed anger so watch out for when the pot boils over.
The war on woman’s wombs seems now seems to be more actively coming from results of women who have had Covid Vaccinations recently getting very heavy periods, hemorraghing and miscarrying and even for those living with those who have had the jab for Covid. This may not be being totally reported in the mainstream news.
The war on women’s wombs in Alabama passed the strictest abortion law ever from May 15, 2019. Mars in Cancer is a war and repressed rage against the power of the Birth giving Great Mother. We must defend the womb. Join my the WOMB TECHNOLOGY Group on FACEBOOK which i am a core member of https://www.facebook.com/groups/1367543886749548
IDEALLY, This is a time for Masculine cleansing and purification of TOXIC MASCULINITY, where the warrior takes off his armor and surrenders into the unconditionally loving arms of the Mother Goddess Archetype of his own Anima, his own soul or to a woman. The son comes home to the Mother, to his roots, his female ancestors, to be nurtured, nourished and held safe after being at War in the world and within himself for the last five thousand years. Men, in general, are always suffering from PTSD whether they have actually been in war or not. The workforce is a very competitive battlefield for men and women.
For women Mars in Cancer helps them to raise their Power passion and be agressive strong Amazon warrior women. They can work with their own inner Animus, their inner warrior, who acts in the world on behalf of feminine desires. Most women are very masculine these days, they don’t know about being strong and Feminine at the same time especially if they have never had children.
Mars in Cancer is also repressed anger and rage. We are seeing this well up and spill over in the U.S. these days.
Mars is weak in Cancer, there can be fear to move, to act. The U.S. and Canada and many other countries are Cancer Suns, energy will be sluggish. We will retreat into our shells as crabs do. Positively Peace treaty time is one good aspect of this. Use this time to reflect and be receptive and wait..like a pregnant woman. This is not the best time to make big moves.
The Goddess energies are returning and the movement of men who embrace and serve the Goddess is getting stronger every day. Words from Jeff Brown from Apologies to the Divine Feminine from a warrior in the transition from 2010 – see link for full article below:
“I am grateful for Grandmother, for no one saw my tenderness more clearly. I am grateful for Mother, for choosing to bring me into being and for nourishing my body until I could find my feet. I am grateful for Mother Earth, for grounding my expansion and enlivening my spirit. I am grateful for the Divine Mother, the real Mother of us all. I now feel her divine presence, so close. Fiercely compassionate, she was always right here, breathing life into me, holding me safe. I sit in her lap as she breathes me.”
The warriors need to lay down their arms and to surrender, like the
Men need to become Knights in shining arm, defending and integrating Feminine values and this is what Mars in Cancer will teach them to do. Men need to defend women, protect them, the children and FEMININE rights and have the freedom to express their own feelings fully. Yes, big boys Do cry. “I fight for beauty”- Daario Naharis from Game of Thrones.
Mars in Cancer governs the stomach, so much desire to stuff those feelings. The battle of the bulge will be on. Tummies will be ultra sensitive to any emotional and food upsets. Attract someone by cooking for them. The desire to reunite with family is also strong and favored.
Mars in CANCER –
Cancer governs the 4th house traditionally and that house/sign holds the key to your actual physical birth and pre-birth, to your relationship with your Mom, your early childhood, your roots, foundation, the Unconscious, your womb experiences. Any unconscious, shadow material will be activated by Mars in Cancer making you angry and lash out spontaneously. Perhaps it was your mother who was the aggressive, angry, repressed anger, dangerous one. This would be a great time to do some deep therapy work as Mars rules SCORPIO sign of psychotherapy. With Saturn at those fated last degrees of Scorpio, Mars adds ease and emphasis to accessing your ancient buried emotional treasure trove lying in your knotted up guts.
For many the idea of going home is scary as it was/is a battle zone. But this is the optimum time to heal those wounds. This may be a tumultuous time as Mars aggravates family feuds. Mars in Cancer is literally fire in water, so with the droughts in California and elsewhere, expect to see battles over water rights, and the oceans, also wetter weather.
Surrender your ego posturing, your defenses, you need to fight and be right. Let go and allow. Honor your Feminine side, your intuition and feelings which are always clear. Positive warrior battles will take the form of being soldiers of Love, supporting women and children, cook-offs, eating contests.
Where is the Sign of CANCER in your natal chart? That is where the action is. Remember we are all family. A lot of water therapy is good, releasing in hot baths with Epsom salts. Drink lots of water. Sex in water is also favored. Have a water birth.
