The Sun-Mars conjunction will play out in a different way for each person based on where it falls in your birth chart. Using the solar house system, you can look up your star sign in the table and see which area of your life will be most affected. For example Librans can expect exciting new beginnings in travel and study, while for Sagittarians the focus is on relationships.
What the Sun-Mars Conjunction Means For You
Last month we discussed the bi-annual Sun-Mars conjunction which took place on the 15th June propelling us into a new two-year cycle of action and adventure. The Sun and Mars joined forces in air sign Gemini for the first time since June 1983.
The Sun-Mars conjunction will play out in a different way for each person based on where it falls in your birth chart. Using the solar house system you can look up your star sign in the table below and see which area of your life will be most affected. So for example Librans can expect exciting new beginnings in travel and study, while for Sagittarians the focus is on relationships.
If you have a more detailed knowledge of astrological houses, you can also check the exact house position of 23-24º Gemini in your birth chart and expect an exciting new beginning and surge of energy in this part of life as well. For example if the Sun-Mars conjunction falls in your tenth house (career), you might decide to start up a new business and if it’s in your sixth house (health), you might start training for a triathlon.

Featured Sign – Cancer
From the 22nd June to the 23rd July the Sun travels through cardinal water sign Cancer. Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac with keywords “I feel” and “I fluctuate”. Cancer’s symbol is the crab, an instinctive creature dwelling in the watery depths in the safety of its shell. Cancers are extremely sensitive. They love to mother and nurture others and have a strong attachment to home, family and community. At best Cancers are in touch with their feelings and display kindness, love and compassion. They are highly emotional, usually love food and have a reputation for taking care of friends, family and workmates. Negatively, the Cancer individual can be moody, dependent, illogical, manipulative and insecure. Cancer rules the stomach, breasts and solar plexus. When Cancers are out of balance they can suffer from mood swings, digestive upsets, water retention and breast problems. The Cancer colours are silver and pastel shades and women born under this sign often love antique jewellery and lingerie. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, so those with a prominent Moon in their chart often display Cancer qualities. Cancer’s greatest lesson is to live in the present and to deal with mood swings and feelings of fear and insecurity.
July Moon Calendar
Launch projects at the New Moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the Full Moon to the Third Quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next New Moon. Important events such as parties, conferences and weddings are best held close to the Full Moon or when the Moon is in the same sign as your Sun (or Star) sign.
