Mars moves into Cancer today. I happen to have my natal Mars in Cancer in my first house, so I definitely know how emotionally powerful this transit will be. This transit will be about feeling safe in your feelings. Cancer’s sanctuary lies within, while Mars domain is the real world. We will come to understand that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. The above photo is from the film ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ which follows the story of 3 orphans who have to stick together in situations that constantly threaten to tear them apart. There’s a great quote in the film that says ‘As long as we have each other, we have a home.’ The need to keep their family unit together (Cancer) became the orphans motivation to survive (Mars).
When Mars threatens to break open Cancer’s shell remember that as long as you have self-trust, vulnerability, and FAMILY, you will be safe.
