Mars has stirred the pot since he moved into Cancer on August 3rd. Get ready for feelings to intensify over the next few days.
Mars and Uranus in Aries are forming an exact square today. On the 10th and 11th Mars will be in exact opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. Issues will be anger based and logic will be in short supply.
Mars square Uranus is a flashpoint for fights, temper tantrums and breaks for freedom. Mars in Cancer can be childishly demanding...a puddle of sensitive feelings spoiling for a fight. Uranus in Aries just doesn't care. It has its own agenda and that includes independence and breaking away from the past at any cost. Who do you think is going to get the short end of the stick?
How about that opposition? Relentless Pluto in Capricorn will be challenging Mars to a dual. It won't be a fair fight because Pluto is large scale, impersonal transformation and Mars in Cancer represents personal needs and desires.
You can choose how to respond to these transits. Know that upsets (Uranus) will come out of left field. It will be much easier (and less damaging) if you roll with the punches instead of lashing out. If you've been clinging (Cancer) to unproductive behaviors, Pluto will purge and destroy those habits. The good thing about Pluto's energy is that you've probably seen these changes coming a mile away. Even if you're just reacting (Mars) you can nurture (Cancer) yourself and others. You can empower (Pluto) yourself by taking on the role of mother (instead of child) when confronted with Capricorn's authority. You can react (Mars) with hope for the future (Uranus) instead of helplessness (Cancer).
You can even initiate (Mars) your own changes. It's not too late.
