I actually meant a Sun and Ascendant in water signs, one of which Cancer + more personal planets in Cancer. I agree with what you wrote about your wife because I am myself well aware of a person with Capricorn Sun, watery Ascendant and most of the personal planets in Cancer but he doesnít fit my observations. However, a person with Cancer Ascendant, water Sun and a stellium in Cancer is another story. Sorry for the confusion.

OK, Iíll wait for that part.

Iím not sure either anymore. I just got utterly confused. Iíve re-read the thread three times and itís too much info, I guess. Iíll try again. And I just read your writings on Porphyry and this was the last drop. LOL

Mars is the drive shaft or drive mechanism which translates the engine's power into action. I'm not trying to downgrade the Sun here. If the motor is weak or dead, no matter how wonderful the drive mechanism is, nothing will happen, whereas a strong engine may still produce some action, even with a weak driveshaft. Or if you like the energy of the Sun needs to be able to translate into action and Mars is the planet that's supposed to do that.
OK but what if the works is not in best condition? My Mars is definitely not the works Iíd choose for my car. Yet, seems the car has been going, especially in sports, quite nicely.

The trine is a good working link between engine and drive shaft, and actually they might works so well together that you see them as one unit. That's just a thought but it might explain why you tend not to notice Mars in action.
May be thatís it, yes. Thatís why I kept asking about the trine between them. Because Mars doesnít look very well where he is. On the other hand, why is he not playing in transits more significantly? Transits give him the chance as he moves through different houses? There is something Iím missing with him and Iím just thinking, this is not for this thread, I guess though.
