EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN CANCER–NOT A TIME TO PICK A FIGHT
Mars goes into his sign of debilitation today on July 11tth and that word gets misused and misunderstood so much. Debilitated planets have to work 3 times as hard to manifest their significations and their negative qualities may come out, but they do teach us things also.
Traditionally Mars in Cancer is a problematic transit for low energy levels, lack of courage and dynamism, anger and it can create militant emotions, friction, unreliability, problems with teeth and gums, indigestion from low fire, problems with mother and other assorted problems. It is not easy transit and the combustion being too close to the Sun peaking into July 26th is not helping.
Can we find a bright side to this transit? I think for Aries and Scorpio rising, we have to think that Mars’ two year transit through the zodiac is inviting a rest, a chance to let go and recharge the batteries for the next two years. It is difficult for Mars to rest and to let go as by nature he is always active, creating, protecting and fighting so the key with the Mars transit is to do get more sleep, not push yourself beyond your limits, go on meditation retreats to rejuvenate, cut back on your exercise and find more time for meditation and give the warrior a rest. He has worked hard the past 2 years. Even Mars needs a rest at times.
This not a time to pick fights when your anger and irritability comes up. You will hurt others and then wallow in self-remorse. Let people and situations be. The recent Mars/Pluto opposition had me attacking a hapless customer service agent at Dell for total incompetence and I felt worse afterwards. Yes, I let my anger out but I failed to practice kindness and compassion and this man probably was in worse shape than I was.
So time for Mars to go on vacation. Aries rising will want to do all kinds of home renovations or may be motivated to go buy property but the support is not there and you will get more exhausted. Scorpio may be inclined to do a foreign pilgrimage or trip with a 9th house transit. It will be reward but exhausting. Instead, stay home and study spiritual teaching by video. Everything is available now without having to travel to India and hike the Himalayas but do give into that quest for new spiritual knowledge, going to church or temple.
Other rising signs have to be careful. Gemini/Capricorn/Cancers rising or moon signs can get into major relationship scuffles and sexual escapades and will need to curb that energy or end up angry and energetic spent and exhausted from nights of passion. Libras will have to watch work-alcoholism and rest more. Cancers could get into major disputes with Mars and Mercury together again for a few weeks.
So, slow down. You are moving too fast. Debilitated planets need to work 3 times as hard to make things happen. Don’t give up but give yourself more time and be patient with anger and frustration or you will end up a raging pile of kindle and self-remorse.
I think the transit through Pushya (Saturn’s nakshatra) is auspicious for bringing the blessings of Brihaspati and it is really the transit through Ashlesha (Cancer 16.40-29.59) that is the most difficult part of the 2 years as Mars is fully down at 28 degrees Cancer. Be patient with yourself this month. Beating yourself up never benefits everyone. Just know that you and Mars need a rest. Take a pause that refreshes. Be kind to yourself and you will sail through a hot summer.

MINI-COURSE: 8 Lessons
8 Sundays (2 hour classes)
This seminar is designed for students of Vedic astrology who know the basics, and seek to unfold some secret insights charts. I find that people get too identified too much with their natal chart as if they were a line on stone and if they are Scorpio rising in their birth chart than they can talk about themselves only in that way. In reality we are more of a multi-dimensional holograms and there are many charts that we have to look at during different times to get a full picture of who we are that give us insight into our soul, mind, emotions, physical reality and transposed reality. Module 3 addresses looking at your chart from multiple perspectives that you understand your personal journey including your physical reality, mental reality, emotional reality, soul reality, period reality and re-locational reality. Then one has to integrate all of those perspective with a reading that helps answer a client’s questions and explain what is happening. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Email for special invoicing if you do not use paypal. Basic knowledge of Vedic Astrology is required. Early reading list and extra videos and study lists will be available to supplement and allow us to go deeper in class.
