This reminds me of Aries, the solo adventurer. The ruler, Mars, is now in Cancer, the sign of safety and belonging. The fear of separating from the pack can be more daunting than the events awaiting in the outside world when one considers moving away to pursue an individual destiny. As Mars transits Cancer the lure of discovery conflicts with the urge to bond with the clan and stay with the familiar. But some unusual circumstances are accompanying this already uncommon transit.
At the end of the passage, Pluto will be in Capricorn. Jupiter too. And here's something really interesting. Two years from now when Mars enters Cancer again, Pluto will be at the same 0 degree for the last time, as the north node of the moon enters Capricorn at 29.
This nudges me to conclude that a journey out of a maternal cave could be ahead in some instances. This winter into spring would be the preparation. Quite possibly, people will feel the urge to get their houses in order, both literally and figuratively, in preparation for the upcoming exploration that Mars desires. The houses with Cancer and Capricorn in the individual charts hold clues as people discover ways to build a solid base of emotional security, ripen in the cool, and emerge next spring ready to face the world, and in two years time, markedly further on the way to their material destinies.
