Mars, planet of drive and action, enters the nakshatra of Pushya within the zodiacal sign of Cancer on June 7th until 29th, 2021.
Cancer is Mars’s place of debilitation, but Pushya is a highly auspicious and fine-quality nakshatra which gives a positive and supportive nature and a desire to find meaning in life.
Pushya’s symbol is the Udder which is all about caring and nurturing, and your motivation and desire now are wrapped up with looking after people closest to you. This transit puts your attention on providing security, where Mars has a tenacious quality that sees you battling and protective.
You may be drawn into an actual caring environment, like a hospital, hotel or spa, or simply tap into your good instincts about people’s needs. Pushya is ruled by Brihaspati so there is also a drive towards finding bigger significance, plus an inclination to play fair in a sporting and generous spirit.
You need reading matter, higher learning and inspiration, and you are more likely to jump into action when there’s a strong purpose behind what you are doing.
The Shakti of this asterism is ‘The Power to Create Spiritual Energy’, so being strong and self-motivated gives you your own wisdom and charisma, and inspires people to follow you. You can investigate different spiritual traditions and philosophy, with a great generosity behind all your actions.
Put your focus on studying, teaching and spreading knowledge, and you may find yourself being drawn into influential circles. Mars exchanges mutual glances with Saturn, lord of karma, through this transit, which may bring a challenge to your authority or a delay in achieving your goals.
Be patient, keep the faith, and use Pushya’s spiritual power to see all your operations through to a successful close.
