No more mental tennis, betches! Audacious Mars, planet of assertion, sex, and the cosmos’ most infamous bachelor, just finished parting ways with the mischievous sign of the twins, where he used his brilliant mind, clever quips, and intellectual agility to get it in. The warrior planet is known for its aggression and impulsiveness, ergo, our passions were expressed via sizzling mind games and red-hot banter. Mental stimulation was our jam during this savvy transit, but all things come to an end. Remember, whichever zodiac sign Mars touches ultimately determines the way we assert ourselves, physically and sexually. This celestial entity is hot-headed and animalistic, so you can already guess what happens when it camps through a hypersensitive water sign like Cancer. Dramarama? Most definitely. But it’s deeper than that, actually. Despite its reputation for being overly emotional, and a tad bit on the needy side, Cancer is a symbol of nurture, as well as our inner world.
Here’s where it can get a little tricky: The archetype of Mars is considered “masculine,” as it determines how we fight, and what we fight for; hence it’s Aries’ planetary ruler and Scorpio’s co-ruler. (Aries and Scorpio didn’t learn how to go to battle on their own, trust me.) Mars epitomizes the astrological element fire, as opposed to Cancer, who can easily cry a whole river. Get the picture? The only thing these two energies have in common is that they’re both cardinal, which means they thrive when taking the initiative. Sexually, this transit can be pretty intimate, and I’ll tell you why. In Cancer, Mars prefers to take action behind closed doors, where it feels secure, emotionally and physically. Also, vulnerability and transparency are a must-have during this time, so don’t even bother playing the cool girl card. Mars in Cancer expresses itself via cuddles, emotional bonding, and the crab’s personal favorite…cooking homemade meals!

Not that I need to tell you this, but focus on your goals, and keep it in your pants.
Spotlight’s on you, betch. Oh, please. Don’t pretend you don’t love being in control. Do yourself a favor and stop trying to play the “balanced” mediator role.

You’re on fire, Capricorn. With the planet of desire, sex, and assertion igniting your seventh house of relationships and partnerships, you’re craving some action-packed one-on-one experiences, and you’ll stop at nothing to get your way. Also, I know bickering is more of a Mars in Gemini thing, but you’ll be craving some serious back-and-forth mind games during this time. Take it easy, though. You’ll likely be wearing your emotions on your sleeve.
Wake up. Grind. Repeat. Fiery Mars is igniting your sixth house of health and due diligence, and you’re as resourceful as ever. Although, in the midst of this high-energy kick, you’ll likely be in the mood for something a little more physical…and I don’t mean pilates! This area of your chart governs everything related to your day-to-day routine, which means you could do it any time, anywhere…if that makes sense. Make sure to set your out of office reply if you need to mysteriously disappear in the middle of the day.
