Mars Retrograde 2018 - Cancer

Hello Cancer!

This retrograde will be quite intense for you, it happens kasi in your relationship sectors. Okay, wag muna kabahan, ha! A little preparation, and you can surely ace this period. In general, It‘s best to make sure you do as much as you can, before June 27, habang direct pa ang Mars energy. Pagkatapos kasi niyan, tamad season na, lalo na ngayon, malamig at maulan!

 Mars in retrograde restricts energy and forward movement, making it difficult to accomplish tasks. Maximim effort usually yields minimal results,  This doesn’t mean naman na nga-nga na. Things lang will take more effort than usual, so diligence and patience is a must.

This is not the time to start something new. Instead, it is a good time to pause and take a break. Improve your existing projects, instead of starting new initiatives. Use this period to reflect, bago ulit mag full speed ahead. Parang cosmic humps ba, celestial version nung garalgal sa kalsada sa NLEX at SLEX roads para iwas overspeeding.

Mars starts its reverse motion in your solar 8th House, back to your solar 7th House, covering the area highlighted below:


8th House represents: transformation, death, loss, sexual intimacy, secrets, intensity, inheritance, joint finances, taxes, loans and debts

7th House representsestablished romantic relationships (marriage, long term unions), business partnerships, contracts,


June 27 – August 12

Mars starts moving backwards in your solar 8th house, and issues of intimacy, trust, sex, joint finances might come up for you now, and quite strongly. Are your joint finances/mutual resources in order? May mga utang ba na hirap na bayadan? Are there intimacy issues that you are afraid to address?

Reminders for this time:

  • For singles, ingatan ang puri. Haha. Yes, you are guarded most of the time already, Cancer, but ngayon kasi, there is a tendency to give-in to the wrong people, so always think twice. Or more pa.

  • Either ikaw or your darling ay wala sa mood to feel intimate, physically or just even emotionally. Hindi pantay, and may tendency ka na sarilihin lahat yan, causing problems, especially for a water sign like you. Take note of this, and try to adjust accordingly. Alalayan niyo ang isa’t-isa, and encourage communication!

  • 8th house rules secrets, too. It is possible that you either reveal one, or one is revealed to you. Don’t be praning ha, this doesn’t necessarily mean the bad kind! This is a good time to discuss what should be discussed, but is hidden. This is always a good thing, especially in the long run!

  • Review your finances, especially joit finances with business partners, or your spouse. Inconsistencies tend to pop up, and its best to discover them now so they can be fixed. Better sooner, than later. Also, your partner might take a few hits in regards to finances/income. Being supportive is very important during this time.

  • Exes might preoccupy your mind more during this time. Perhaps even make an appearance. The more difficult the break-up, the higher chance of sudden encounters. Wag ka na magulat pag nagkita kayo. Pag nilandi ka, be vigilant! Be ready, just in case!

August 12 – August 27

Mars re-enters your 7th house of relationships and commited partnerships. Expect relationship drama! There is a tendency to feel irritation or coldness towards your committed partnerships. May tendency manamlay pagdating sa lovelife. Don’t be afraid of this, pampalakas lang ‘yan lalo ng samahan. These 2 weeks, try your best to be more understanding of your partners, be it in business, or in personal affairs. This part of the retrograde will force you to figure out  a more evolved way of settling misunderstandings/disagreements. If you allow it, this can be a big blessing, dear Cancer. If maneuvered well, the issures that will arise now will only strengthen your foundation, resulting in better, happier unions.

Don’t be afraid Cancer! 2 months lang ito of relationship bootcamp. After this,  level up ang foundation ng relationships mo. This can be a really good, transformative time. Preparation is the key. Kayang kaya yan! Good luck!!!
