Mars opposite Saturn 14 June 2019 – Proceed with care

We have some potentially difficult energy to contend with on 14 June 2019 with the aspect of Mars in Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn, exact at 18 degrees of the signs. We want to ‘go’ but feel held back or the need to ‘stop.’

Mars is the fiery planet associated with action, initiation, assertion, competition, will, courage and drive. He is the ‘warrior’ who helps us go after what we want. Mars is currently in the sign of Cancer, his ‘fall’ position, where he isn’t so comfortable. The urge to independently forge ahead in a speedy fashion is tempered by the emotional waters of this sensitive sign, whose aim is to nurture, care for and protect others, creating bonds with family and those we consider to be family. We may find ourselves feeling ‘steamed up’ or frustrated, so managing emotions is in order while attempting to move forward.

Complicating the issue is the opposition from planet Saturn in his home sign of Capricorn where he is in ‘dignity’ or ‘domicile.’ Saturn expresses his energy easily in this sign (whereas Mars does not in Cancer). Mars rules a sign of fierce independence, where Cancer is concerned with emotional bonding and attachment. Saturn represents authority, structure, realism, organisation, ambition, commitment and tradition. He is concerned with rules, limits, restrictions, boundaries, limits and learning lessons. He is slow, steady and cautious, even fearful. Ruling a sign of hierarchy, Capricorn, we need to be patient and controlled in achieving material success and worldly status.

With Mars in Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn, we need to mobilise, realising there may be obstacles or walls standing in our way, blocking our path. We could feel angry and disappointed that things aren’t going as fast as we’d like; just remember to stay patient and disciplined for the long haul.

People who have personal planets or angles around the 16-24 degree mark of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) will feel this energy more strongly.
