EYE ON THE SKY: MARS’S REBIRTH AND TRANSITION FROM CANCER 27 TO LEO 3
Mars is moving toward the last 3 degrees of Cancer which is know in Vedic astrology as a gandanta point. The final 3 degrees between the water and fire signs is a deep emotional transition point. It is know as an emotional knot. If you are born with planets in the Gandanta (Pisces 27-Aries 3; Cancer 27-Leo 3 or Scorpio 27-Sag. 3) then those planets pose difficult karmic knots or life-long problems that are difficult to unravel. When planets transit through these points, they trigger these karmic patterns to untangle.
Mars will be the first planet going through the Cancer gandanta which starts July 15th but is most intense July 19-20th. Not only is Mars at the deepest point of debilitation at 28 degrees Cancer where fatigue and “why bother” energy is very strong, but the energy and frustration of this tangled emotional and psychological knot come so to the surface to deal with. Venus also will go through this point July 15-16th but it has an easier job because it is exalted in the D9 in the Pisces section.
The Cancer gandanta transit by Mars is happening July 15-19th (Cancer 27-30) with the max. energy point (Cancer 29.20-29.59 on July 19-20th ) in the constellation of Hyrda (Ashlesha, Cancer 16.40-29.59). This is a place where the toxins of the past are accumulating in a big tangled that is difficult to untie. Deep unconscious patterns and difficult problems seem to arise that seem daunting and filled with regrets. Remember you have the power of free will in the present moment to move through into new opportunities and do not have to live in the shadows and mistakes of the past. Let them go. They seem tangled and gnarly and difficult to deal with but you are strong enough to get through them. If you are Aries or Scorpio rising or have major planets at Cancer 27-Leo 3 in your natal chart, it is not a good week to beat yourself up as it does not help the situation. Mistakes happen and we just have to let go of them and start a new day living the present.
The fire sign knots have a different energy. The exact knot of the Leo gandanta ( Leo 0.00-0.40) happens for Mars on July 20-21 and is in the constellation of Regulus (Magha, Leo 0.00-13.20). Here the\ soul is troubled in its decision to move forward now into a more successful material life and begin a material journey through the more tamasic or material constellations that dominate for Mars transits through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio until Jan. 16, 2022. The soul more troubled by its sudden emphasis and interest in money and security rather than meditation and the search for the Divine. . The Sun transits through this point on August 17th but is at home in its own sign of Leo and it will be exalted in the navamsha and feel new power and confidence in leadership to move forward now— but can be a bit selfish. The first section of Leo (0-3 degrees) impacts the Sun August 17-19 and Mars on July 20-25 and will have a lot of energy and drive to suddenly move forward and get things done and increase leadership but may be too strong for people to handle as it has great deal of power.
So be easy on yourself if you are Aries or Scorpio rising as Mars completes its 2 year journey to the point of deep debilitation and into July 17-18th. Stay rested and next week when the mind gets filled with deep problems and regrets and remember you have the power and the courage to move through them. Use the Frog pose to increase energy and courage and stimulate the adrenals. Listen to Hanuman Chaliesa or do Hanuman mantras to increase connection to the archetype of courage and service to get through the transitions of next week.
