Mars enters Cancer,Burning man meets family feud, Astrology

The biggest news this week is Mars entering Cancer July 13 @ 6:22 am PDT till August 27 @ 7:05 pm

We have a whole summer of Mars the warrior, returning home after doing intellectual battles of, “should I or shouldn’t I” on the mindfields of Gemini., like Edward Snowden a warrior of information.

MARS in CANCER

Mars is Traditionally considered to be in its’ fall in CANCER, as Warriors need to be on the Battlefield, as in Game of Thrones, not in the kitchen cooking up  a storm. Cancer is the Most Feminine nurturing sign, that of the Mother. Cancer is all about sustenance, nourishment, the womb, home, emotional security.

Warriors battles will take the form of  cook-offs, BBQ battles, eating contests, family feuds, defending home turf. Mars is weak in Cancer, he is a pussycat not a Lion. This is a good thing. The embattled, war-weary warrior  must return home sooner or later. Men may in general may be seen as  suffering from PTSD whether they have actually been in war or not. The workforce is a very competitive battlefield. Soldiers of the battlefields become soldiers of Love.

Cancer is the sign of emotions and needs and the modern Masculine men are taught to conform to the Patriarchal culture with anorexia of felt emotions.  Defending their own vulnerability, defending their tenderness, their need to love and be loved, men  are always defending their hearts from being open and that’s why so many die of heart attacks.

The warriors need to lay down their arms and to surrender, like the Hanged Man in the Tarot, your Cards of the DAY

into the arms of  the GREAT MOTHER, the DIVINE FEMININE, to be taken care of and also his rightful place is to defend the Feminine as in the time of CHIVALRY in the legends of Camelot.

Men need to become Knights in shining arm, defending and integrating Feminine values and this is what Mars in Cancer is teaching them to do. Men need to defend the FEMININE rights, freedom to express themselves, abortion will be a hotter topic. “I fight for beauty”- Daario Naharis from Game of Thrones.

 Mars in Cancer governs the Stomach, the battle of the bulge will be on.  Tummies will be ultra sensitive to any emotional and food upsets.

Mars in CANCER – ANGRY YOUNG MAN

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. Mars is angry and lashes out spontaneously. So this would be a great time to do some therapy work and mine that treasure trove of knots in your gut caused by unintegrated emotional scars that you can’t recall consciously.

Mars conjunct Jupiter coming up on the next Full Moon July 22 Mars and Jupiter

Mark that date on your calendar  if you have planets, angles etc. at 5+ degrees of Cancer. That will super activate all the Grand Trine energy that occurs July 17-19.

MARS JUPITER conjunction is men initiating or defending the LAWS- Jupiter rules the laws- to support or DENY women’s rights. Women will also be more Martially aggressive in terms of changing laws to defend women against Rape, to protect female sex slaves, to ban pornography, which is direct violence against women.

This will be a tumultuous time as Mars aggravates family feuds. Mars in Cancer is literally water on Fire or fire in water, battles over water rights, and the oceans. Street fighting man cools his heals by being soaked. Also more water in the weather, we just had the worst flash floods ever in Toronto last night over 1oo millimetres of rain in a few hours.

MEANING

Surrender your ego posturing, your defenses, your need to fight and be right. Let go and allow. Honor your Feminine side, your intuition and feelings which are always clear.

Where is the Sign of CANCER in your natal chart? That is where the action is.

I will write an Astrology feature for each sign shortly

The Tea Leaf Prophesy/Lay down your arms  by Joni Mitchell-

Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more
Lay ’em down lay ’em down now
Study war no more
Lay down your arms
Study war no more

Newsreels rattle the Nazi dread
The able-bodied have shipped away
Molly McGee gets her tea-leaves read
You’ll be married in a month they say
“These leaves are crazy!
Look at this town there’s no men left!
Just frail old boys and babies
Talking to teacher in the treble clef”

She plants her garden in the spring
She does the winter shovelling
Tokyo Rose on the radio
 She says she’s leavin’ but she don’t go

 Out of the blue just passin’ thru
A young flight sergeant
On two weeks leave
Says “Molly McGee no one else will do!”
And seals the tea-leaf prophecy
Oh these nights are strong and soft
Private passions and secret storms
 Nothin’ about him ticks her off
And he looks so cute in his uniform

She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shovelling
But summer’s just a sneeze
 In a long long bad winter cold
 She says “I’m leavin’ here” but she don’t go

 “Sleep little darlin’!
This is your happy home
Hiroshima cannot be pardoned!
Don’t have kids when you get grown
Because this world is shattered
The wise are mourning
The fools are joking
Oh what does it matter?
The wash needs ironing
And the fire needs stoking”

She plants her garden in the spring
He does the winter shovelling
The three of ’em laughing ’round the radio
 She says “I’m leavin’ here” but she don’t go

She plants her garden in the spring
They do the winter shovelling
They sit up late and watch the
Johnny Carson show
 She says “I’m leavin’ here but she don’t go
