The masculine planet of war and action is in the sign ruled by the Moon, associated in astrology with emotions and with the unconscious.

But enough astrological theory! Let’s see how Mars in Cancer influences our health, finances and relationships:

With Mars transiting Cancer, a lot of things can affect your mood. For example, there are studies proving that food affects your mood more than you think: what you eat determine how you feel in the next few hours:

Mars in Cancer for Your Money: Strategies for Saving Money

Original business ideas and risky investments are not recommended, when Mars transits Cancer. But this transit can help you to discover new great ways to save money. For example – also remembering that Cancer is the ultimate family man – cooking at home is much easier than you think, but also cheaper than take-out or dining out. You can also go through your cell phone bill, look for services you don’t use, and ditch them. Buying used when you can will also make the difference, financially speaking – and let’s not forget that Cancer loves old and ancient things!

One of the best ways to save money is to set a goal. It is important to be a real important goal for you. It can be vacation, down payment for a car or your children education.

Mars in Cancer in Relationships: a Good Family Life

When Mars is in Cancer, you tend to believe that the family is the centre of the Universe and the most important thing in your life. A happy home and a happy family is the main purpose of life and you become very protective of those you love.

Between June 4th and July 20th, you need to give time to each and every one of your family members, so you can understand every individual properly. Also remember to treat everyone as equal, to treat everyone like you would want to be treated! Listen to them when they want to say something; try to be with them when they need you. Give them your time and love!

For those who haven’t a family, maybe this is the best time to create one. In a marriage, Mars in Cancer needs, but also offers, a lot of affection and romance. In bed, they are rather traditionalists.

And, last but not least: for Mars in Cancer, a family is not a family without kids. Planets in Cancer make you a good parent, teaching you how to protect your children.
