To be fair, Mars isn’t exactly home in moody Cancer. As the planet of action and will, Mars has to learn to navigate Cancer’s emotional ebb and flow. Seeing how Cancer is a sign that needs care and nurturing, Mars can get very cranky when it doesn’t get it. That said, we’re going to be extra motivated to connect with family, plant down roots, and band together our tribe over the coming six weeks. What will Mars heat up for you? Read for both your Sun and rising sign.
