Mars in Cancer, internal battles Astrology by Tara Greene

MARS enters Cancer June 24 @6:33 am PDT/ 9:33 am EDT – August 8th. 8 8

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.

Mars in Cancer symbolizes the Warrior returns Home to the Goddess.

This is a time of Masculine cleansing and purification, 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 Feminine energies, be strong women. They can work with their own inner Animus, their inner warrior, who acts in the world on the 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 Sun. the action will be sluggish. Positively Peace treaty time hopefully? Use this time to reflect and be receptive and wait..like a pregnant woman..This is not be 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 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 the women, protect them, the children and FEMININE rights, and have 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 favoured.

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.

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. 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.

I will write Mars aspects later.

Robin Williams, daemons the gift and the tragedy

I stayed up very late last night as I felt I needed to look at Robin William’s astrology chart and get that out. I realized I missed a few things so I will continue and refer back to that.

Yes the entire world is in shock and still mourning. Earlier today graphic details about Robin’s suicide by hanging were broadcast leaving many responding with indignation and anger. I am continuing to send prayers to Robin’s wife and three children. We seem to be united in our loss and deeply grateful to Robin for his amazing gifts and talents which brought so much joy to millions of lives.

Film director Chris Colombus said this of Robin “His performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen, they came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of ‘genius.’

Everyone is rewatching Robin’s films. His career ran the gamut from side-splitting never out of date comedy to serious drama. In Robin’s career and life we see the twin sides of Comedy and Tragedy mirroring each other.

Comedy Tragedy Greek masks

TRAGEDY COMEDY MASKS of Theatre

a entire list of Robins film and Tv credits totals 102 – see link below

Robin was a legendary comedian, serious actor, humanitarian and father. Yes as tragic as his suicide is, it is also a wake up call of the amount of grief those struggling with major depression and  addictions deal with every day until they cannot fight back and sink into the black depths and are driven to end their own lives.  I just realized perhaps Robin was also taking some sort of awful type of anti-depressant like Zoloft or Paxil which actually makes people feel more suicidal as it only masks the root cause.

Serious capable help for those feeling the least bit suicidal and withdrawn should be free, accessible and easy to get. Williams was very open about having life time depressions, his addictions to cocaine and alcohol which he had conquered and for which he sought help in rehab just a few months ago.

It doesnt matter how successful, wealthy, talented or applauded one is if one has depression, addictions and mood disorders one will always be battling their own demons.

The demons are daemon’s, yes like Matt Daemon’s name, I love the name destiny and synchronicity. In ancient Greece the daemon, according to James Hillman was also a Guardian Angel. The deamon bestows the gift but also contains a dark side.   Someone of Robin Williams’s dazzling talents, especially performing comedy, needing to be ON, with a seeming multiple personality those highs also come with equal lows.

Why are people surprised at this?  We all have our own individual dark sides, it counterbalances the light. But when the dark overshadows then we are in trouble. For every star that rises one falls.

Those who live large public lives- stars, musicians, artists, comedians  also counterbalance that OUT THERE personality with deep insecurity. It is the rare person who leads a healthy psychologically balanced stable life in this position what with the archetypal nature of the larger than life fame, wealth, power and status which come from receiving such gifts they have bestowed upon them.

Actors and comedians hide behind their roles. Apparently Robin had been a shell of himself recently. He didnt even sleep in the same bed with his wife apparently on the night before he ended his life. Robin was such a great actor that he apparently hid the level of his depressions even from those closest to him. Not to blame anyone.

We all wish Robin were still alive. He gave us so much, we are addicted to his energy, to how he made us laugh, to  that beautiful soulful very real and humble smile. Stories about his selfless gifts are coming out as he never publicized them. He was  a real mensch.

He had just finished a number of films as recently as the end of July. Another Night at the Museum with Ben Stiller will be out before this years end.

Hindsight is 20 20.

As mentioned in my delineation of Robin’s natal chart that he was under tremendous pressure this year from the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS and if I was his astrology consultant I would have made him go to rehab and stay there knowing the devastating effects these planets would be having on him, plus Saturn in his 12th plus Neptune.

I have plenty of clients who are ordinary people who are also experiencing devastating losses financially and emotionally from being under similar GCC energies in their own lives who are feeling like they want to end it, that they see no positive future anymore. I check on them,pray for them and make sure they get the proper help.

Out of this great tragedy and loss is a WaKE  up  call. Many people struggle with depression, it is an epidemic. We need to look at our entire culture which fosters this split in our psyches, in our lives, from all directions, the impossibly high standards which one is supposed to achieve and maintain. The narcissistic ego dominance. The superficiality, the need to hide ones true self and feelings of insecurity and vulnerability which are simply part of being human.

James Hillman wrote about this in a marvellous book which is really a lengthy interview called  “We’ve had 100 years of Psychotherapy and the world’s getting worse.”  Hillman blames society on every level for creating this split in the human psyche. He applauds AA and champions local community support to enhance individuals sense of wellness and belonging. And for people to point that finger at the society we live on and not blame the victim.

Robins astrology transits

Robin had his Moon and North Node conjunct in PISCES in the 4th house. The 4th house represents the roots of ones childhood and ones  life at it’s end. Neptune the  planet which rules Pisces spirituality, delusions, illusion. addictions escapism, Bliss, is sitting very close to Robin’s Moon and North Node. Indicating that Robin wanted to go HOME, to Heaven where he began.

My message from ROBIN ON THE OTHER SIDE

I do medium work. I have been tracking him and I see that Robin is watching his heart is beaming with joy. He is free of his pain now. He asks us to forgive him for the grief and suffering he has caused  his wife and children and everyone in the world who he knows completely feels genuine love and grief for him and how he suffered in desperation. Suicide hotlines have been broadcasting themselves more because of this.  “Please forgive me and take strength from the joy and laughter I brought you. I love you.”

But there for the Grace of God go I. I know some of us would have been willing to take the bullet in exchange for Robin’s life. We are all part of Robin Williams. We all experience the joys and suffering behind the masks we where. Robin Williams was one of the greatest Fool;s ever. In the Tarot the Fool is the enlightened one, the eternal child.  I keep crying about this great loss of one human who lived an archetypal life which  we are all partaking in.

There but for Fortune – Joan Baez  

Astro sex therapy, your Scorpio Mercury Retrograde

Oct 21 Mercury goes Retrograde yet again. Remember- a Retrograde word -it happens IN SCORPIO 8th house territory. It’s opening the dark box, a consciousness and unconscious, emotional,soul baring, burlesque review of your UNCONCIOUS brainsoul.

The underworld, is where it’s all at. The world of PSYCHE which means SOUL. The Retrograde symbol is Rx just like medicine. Be Receptive. My intention, and yours should be to use this time for therapy of the soul using astrology transits. Astro-sex therapy. I am trained as a Transformational Psycho-therapist.

A SCORPIO Mercury Retrograde spreads your legs open so that everyone can see what you’ve been hiding. Well mainly so you can see. It can be dirty, nasty, shitty. We have all been whores one way or another selling our souls for money, to be liked, to gain power over others. This also covers your wallet, your financial entanglements, too. Sex and money are interchangeable issues.

Mercury REcycles and scrapes back the SCORPIO dark soul stuff, the guck, the emotional grudges, the stickiness, the discarded wad of old emotional scunge you put under the desk in Grade school or even before you can recollect.  

Think about all the sex and power games you’ve played or had played. Be honest with yourself about this.

Have you been raped? Scorpio is Pluto’s home, he raped Persephone into the Underworld to awaken her sexually. Use this time to help heal the pain, if you’ve never told anyone, this is the time to let the secret  shame out.  Tell the police. Release your victimized stance, your fear, get  therapeutic help.

Have sexually or emotionally hurt another? this is the best time  to make amends. With yourself and also to whoever you have hurt. You need to be scrupulously honest and also to forgive yourself. Make a list, write down what you did, meditate and send prayers and light to those you have hurt .

This is intense work, Scorpio’s middle name.

Also women carry sexual imprints from men they have had sex with who didn’t love and honor them. It would be good to cleanse and release all stuck emotional bonds from those people who may have put sexual hooks into you. Men use women to gain energy from them through sex. Most women are unaware of the traces left inside them. That energy really hold your LIGHT back. Again it begins with a conscious re-acknowelging. And then ritual bathing which I would advise you to do on the SCORPIO SOLAR ECLIPSE.

I just realized how important this is and I will write and make a video about it .and perhaps give instructions in an online class.

Women if you want to clear up your old relationships issues, this is the pre-requisiste to do so.  I can’t restate this enough. I did it myself before I started my relationship with my 2nd husband. I knew instinctively that to change this relationship We had to both do this together. That’s a whole other workshop.

Do you need a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down?

Its time to RE- relax, rewind, renew, review, relegate, reinstate, regenerate, refurbish, retrace, rebel, rectify, reduce, refute, regurgitate, rehash, rejuvenate, be a recluse, recapitulate- a shamanic term, sort out what is relevent in your life, remember, resuscitate, think about your reputation,

You need a card to help guide you?

 ACE OF DISKS/worlds  from Voyageur Tarot

A new physical beginning is what the card says. This is the precursor.

Aces have the most power, like an acorn they contain the entire oak tree’s energy in its beginning stage.

So this is where you are at. I’d say its 14 days till the SCORPIO SOLAR ECLIPSE>

I’d do a 14 day review and I’ll send instructions as I receive them.
