Monday, September 12th, 2011: Mars is in Cancer from August 3rd to September 19th, 2011. Mars is said to be in its “fall” in Cancer, and by this the ancients meant that Cancer is a difficult place for Mars. There can be defensiveness in the air now, and repressed feelings of anger. What is needed during this period is for all of us to actively get to the bottom of things and to create more spiritual security in our lives, rather than just defending all the old, worn-out structures and defense systems we’ve been living with. Take the initiative now to NURTURE.
