Mars in Cancer sign project

This is where I am temporarily filing the Sun- and Moon-constellation discussions of the last year if I have dug through the content yet, matching them to my own data pools.

Mars in Cancer sign project

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Jul 12, 2019 8:13 pm

Welcome to the Mars in Cancer discussions project, which will run July 17 - August 17, 2019 (and then will remain around in case people want to revisit it in the future). Please gather your list of Mars in Cancer people (especially those you know personally) and join us.

Here are Mars in Cancer interpretive resources on the forum:
Primary section: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=32#p118
Garth Allen: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=33#p133

Mars in Cancer has similarities to and differences from Sun in Cancer. To help discern these similarities and differences, here is a link to the earlier Sun in Cancer viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1547

My current concise summary of Mars in Cancer (always subject to change) reads:
Inner strength (prodigious imagination & fantasy) usually holds private demons at bay; but clings to old wounds (angry, acting out, selfish, retaliatory from old mistreatment). Breeds confidence, makes things happen; loyal, speaks truth to power; but wants a chance to lead. Magnetic (passionate following?). Wants adoration sexually (otherwise business-like in sex).
Here on Solunars, Mars in Cancer is in the birth charts of Arena, sotonye, Lunar9, Tina, and Spiritus Sanctus XCIII, in addition to Lance's wife

To this we can add Sidereal pioneer Brigadier R.C. Firebrace. Of figures currently in public awareness or recently discussed here, consider Hillary Clinton, Mike Pence, Kamala Harris, and Ram Dass.

I know one personally.

I am always curious when I see what feels like a very negative affliction listed for the placement. I see those statements like a red flag saying " bad habit" or " worst case scenario or a tendency to slip to the lowest common denominator.

For mars in cancer it is said it clings to old wounds.
Sounds like picking a scab almost.
But I dont think that is what it is as much as maybe its not a clinging to old wounds as much as being a slowness to heal.

I do see the clinginess to the wound but I think that maybe more of a defensiveness to the reality that Super sensitive Cancers get hurt easily and deeply and because of the soft gentle conditions of there nature it takes longer to heal.
Possibly because of the watery nature. Wounds that are constantly waterlogged take for ever to heal.

I noticed when talking to my ex who has a Moon in Cancer that her memory seemed like a spotless repository of offenses taken and that, given the opportunity, she'd recall all the small instances where some rudeness in action or in a word of mine had had an upleasant affect on her for a moment, and not really because they were actionable offenses but almost because she just wanted me to know that she remembers everything, and I realized then that I do this exact same thing, that I never really forget when I'm wronged and that I don't ever hesitate to bring up instances where that all has happened! I really think clinging onto old wounds is a huge part of Cancer in general and we are so strange in this way, I can't say we sincerely care about the past, it seems more like we use the past as leverage in the present, and for whatever reason this seems very businesslike to me, as if we want to ensure positive performance in our relations by issuing a warning that we are watching
