Mars in Cancer through the houses   Leave a comment

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus but what happens when Mars becomes the mother.  Mars in Cancer is traditionally in fall if we view Mars as being male then it cannot be the mother, but what if that view is wrong what if we are all from Mars and Venus equally – then Mars is just another representation of the protective, creative and fertile energy we all have.

Yuchi a native American tribe held to the belief in northern cosmogony — an upper world, containing the Elders of men and animals, and a waste of waters below. Animal after animal attempts to bring up earth from the deep, until, in this legend, the crayfish (Cancer) succeeds in lifting to the surface the embryonic ball whence Earth is to grow.

The myth of the Yuchi denotes Cancer’s prominence as the womb or nurturer.  Cancer also contains another symbol that of Yin and Yang, we all possess each of these two energies; dark and light, male and female, and these energies ebb and flow within us in a constantly changing direction as we struggle to balance the energies of the white wolf with the black wolf.  Cancer may also have been connected in its role as womb to Ningal, Wife of Nanna (Sumerian moon God), Ningal gave birth to the twins the Sun god Utu and Inanna (Venus).  In Sumerian mythology Nanna (the moon) symbol of motherhood is male.

Khonsu was the Egyptian Moon God.  His name reflects the fact that the Moon (referred to as Iah in Egyptian) travels across the night sky, for it means traveller, and also had the titles EmbracerPathfinder, and Defender, as he was thought to watch over night travellers. As the god of light in the night, Khonsu was invoked to protect against wild animals, increase male virility, and aid with healing. It was said that when Khonsu caused the crescent moon to shine, women conceived, cattle became fertile, and all nostrils and every throat was filled with fresh air.

Khonsu can also be understood to mean king’s placenta, and consequently in early times, he was considered to slay the king’s (i.e. the pharaoh’s) enemies, and extract their innards for the king’s use, metaphorically creating something resembling a placenta for the king. This bloodthirsty aspect leads him to be referred to, in such as the Pyramid texts, as the (one who) lives on hearts.

With Mars in cancer we have the energy of the mother lor daddy ion protecting her/his cubs, that is often considered feminine energy but we all have a mothering or protective instinct male and female we are all capable of nurturing and protecting it is one of the most primal of instincts for both sexes and Mars is a primal instinct planet.  Mars in Cancer is very primal Martian energy it protects vulnerable loved ones and ensures their needs are met.  Mars in Cancer exemplifies Martian energy at its best ensuring the survival of our offspring.  This leads Mars to be extremely volatile in this sign because Mars is protecting the most precious resource we have – future generations.

Mars in Cancer expresses its sexuality positively whether male or female, which is the virile and fertile energy that gives life and connects us all in the great circle.
