Mars in Cancer

Mars in Cancer: May 15 – July 1

Holding onto Anger

Under the influence of Mars in Cancer, and depending on how this transit affects the other planets in your chart you may find yourself sitting on your anger, letting it build rather than expressing it immediately and directly. Even when the emotional dam bursts you may implode rather than explode.


At this time, you may feel you shouldn’t express your anger openly so could turn it inward on yourself, which can lead to depression or other health problems, or you’ll shift into passive-aggressive mode. That way, at least there’ll be an outlet for your anger, murky as it might be.

Don’t Take Everything Personally

There are certain steps you can take during this period to maximize the positive attributes of this transit. First of all, recognize that you are thin-skinned and this period will be over within a few weeks. If you find yourself getting offended easily, try to be a little less sensitive and don’t take everything so personally, or so seriously.

Find an Outlet

When you feel angry at this time, find a way to express it clearly and directly, to the appropriate person. If writing is more comfortable than speaking, take that route. Also, keep a regular exercise routine, near water if you can. Most of all, don’t sit on your anger or keep it bottled up inside. It’s not good for you!
