Mars is on Cancer 5: AT A RAILROAD CROSSING, A CAR RACES WITH A TRAIN
The Sun transited over this degree a few days ago. It will be interesting to see what happens with this. This can be a ‘train wreck’ degree, but it can be rewarding. We do, however, need to watch out for collisions – with others, with the establishment, with companies, etc.
This Symbol implies the desire, or the ability, to compete with or take on society as if life were a race or something to be conquered in some way. The ‘Car’ is a vehicle for the individual and the ‘Train’ a vehicle for the masses. There is often a need for caution as the individual will not always survive in a collision with the more powerful collective. It probably won’t always work to be insisting bravely that your individual needs should be considered. The collective has too much momentum. If someone pits themselves and their energies continually against society, sooner or later they are likely to lose.
Not looking to the consequences of one’s actions. Running against the grain of others. Cars, trains. Individual rights. Rebelling. Split second timing. Taking one’s chances.
The Caution: Recklessness. Being prepared to sacrifice others. Working until one drops. Not knowing when to stop. Emotional panic. Spinning out of control. Going off the rails.
