There are very powerful forces at work this week as the god of war (Mars) faces off with the god of the underworld (Pluto). These two formidable opponents can create some serious turbulence on the domestic front. As sensitivities and the need for power and control are extreme, the tendency to lash out and escalate conflicts that remain buried until now is even more extreme.

Mars in Cancer would rather throw a temper tantrum or retreat to one's own shell than fire direct missives. Therefore, the passive-aggressive energy could build to a crybaby crescendo if issues have not been dealt with. Pluto in Capricorn demands integrity and personal accountability for our actions. There is no hiding behind our mother's apron strings, so to speak. We have to come out from our shells and get clear on what is of value to us. If you're not sure, look at where you spend your time.

Family members who have felt neglected may be pitching fits now, so be sure to spend as much quality time with your mother, father, cousins, aunts, sisters and brothers as possible during this time. If there has been a long-standing issue in the family, perhaps even one that stems back generations, this planetary war can dredge everything up to the surface -- ready or not! This is a time to work out all of our emotional grievances rather than carrying the grudges into another generation. Work it out now so there can be healing for the future of the family.
