The Warrior Mars enters Caring, Nurturing Cancer. Today, 4th June, the planet Mars which, in pragmatic astrology, represents Assertion, Courage and Forcefulness enters the Reflective, Highly Sensitive and Vulnerable zodiac sign of Cancer.
As I write this blog it is with a backcloth of terrorist activity occurring in our midst again in the UK. Mars represents Courage. It is a Warrior, not a Wallflower and helps us assert our beliefs with a forceful, dynamic and energetic fervour, with total honesty and self-expression.
The Warrior Mars enters Caring, Nurturing Cancer. Perhaps it is no coincidence that this powerful, vital and strongly individual energy has entered the vulnerable, instinctual and hugely empathetic sign of Cancer – absorbing other people’s pain as if it were our own. This sign is reflective and emotional with deeply personal feelings and, being a Water sign, is used to dealing with the ‘mess of life’. It is ruled by the Moon and is in touch with basic survival instincts. It is a nurturing and protective energy which is all to do with Safety, Security and Wellbeing.
Mars remains in Cancer until the 20th July when you will hear its roar as it enters the zodiac sign of Leo, but during the next few weeks this influence will help us reflect on what has been; it will allow us to get in touch with our emotions and build on our security and safety once more and to be protective of who we are and what we stand for as the strong individuals we are.
The Warrior Mars enters Caring, Nurturing Cancer. We can be strong and understanding, assertive and empathetic, forceful and intuitive. Mars and Cancer will show us the way forward. Use this combination of influences as you go about your business in the weeks to come. It’s time to come out of that shell and use our pincers!
With love, light and peace – until the next time, Stephanie x
