Mars in Cancer is not an easy energy to deal with and tends to release unconscious anger at the most inopportune times. Temper is triggered much more easily especially if you’re harboring a grudge or holding on to something from the past. It would be best to clear the air as directly as possible because if you let the anger percolate, steam and simmer then it can explode down the line when the incident is well past the time of dealing with it rationally. Pay attention to your feelings and what motivates them.
