Allow yourself to accept failure and take your disappointments in stride this day when irritable Mars opposes Neptune. Take time to yourself for quiet reflection, instead of seeking out the validation of others when these two planets work against each other.
Saturn, the planet of rules and regulations goes direct on September Nurture your aspirations on September 19, when bold Mars trines cathartic Pluto. This is a day to explore your secret self and test your grit. All is not as it seems on September 21, when Jupiter squares imaginative Neptune.
Be wary of anyone who attempts to promise you the world while these two planets are at odds — this energy holds more style than substance.
The Sun brightens the diplomatic sign of Libra on September 23, boosting our ability to read social cues and need for fairness. A positive New Moon Libra greets us on September 28 at p. EST, encouraging us to connect with others and reinvest our time in our relationships. In some traditions of India, a five-day fast begins on this day and concludes on the 15th day of the cycle at Kartik Purnimaa full moon , when the Moon is full in or near the constellation of Krittika, which is known as the Pleiades in the English language.
This month in the calendar is considered very auspicious and the culmination of some important festivals and religious observances. Mars breaks up the tension between himself and Saturn on September 24 by moving into Venus' air sign, Libra, joining Mercury and Sun on November Mars and Saturn have been mutually aspecting each other since Mars entered Virgo, which can create tension or a push-pull dynamic.
As mentioned, the energy of Mercury added to Mars can be quite productive, especially when we exercise patience and some prudence. The first ten days of Mars' transit through Libra is marked by an equally passionate exchange of signs with Venus, who will be in Mars' water sign of Scorpio through November 20, which is also the day that Mercury resumes direct motion. The last ten days of November, with Mercury direct and sharing space with Mars, could be well spent by really applying energy, power and resources to current undertakings.
Things that are already in motion could be well supplied with enthusiasm and energy to further agendas and plans. Let's remember that Rahu is still exalted in Gemini and that one of the places his energy hits is Libra, along with Aquarius, as Rahu's aspects mirror Jupiter's, who affects all signs of the same element from where they are placed. Even though Mars doesn't tend to be viewed as a social butterfly, if there's any time we can get him to come out and play, it will be during this period, between mid-November and the end of December.
This is a good time for networking, strategizing and synthesizing creativity with practicality. Build it and they will come. As always during full Moon, the Sun is positioned in the opposite sign, Libra, and is joined by Mars, aspecting his own sign of Aries and also retrograde Mercury. This is an interesting and strong Moon moment, as Bharani nakshatra is lorded by Venus and located within Aries, lorded by Mars.
At this time of this full Moon, these two planets, Venus and Mars, are enjoying a powerful exchange of signs, which should be supportive for relationships, mental well-being and almost any kind of creative or building project. As mentioned above, this is known as Kartik Purnimaa, the full Moon when it falls in Krittika nakshatra. To be exact, this full Moon is a couple of hours away from reaching Krittika territory, but since it is so close, we still consider it Kartik Purnimaa, even though the Moon's exact moment of fullness came in Bharani.
Since this moment occurs before sunrise, it is still considered Monday by the traditional reckoning, which is also the Moon's own day of the week. This further strengthens this Moon, who is reflecting the light of the Sun, who is not as happy in Venus' sign of Libra. This time around the full Moon may be great for getting perspective.
With no other planets conjoining the Moon, we may be either inspired to take some time alone for quiet reflection or be forced into it. Either way, place an intention to calmly perceive the current situation, pause to regain your energy and then move forward. The Sun has a much better relationship with his friend Mars than Venus. Moving from Venus' air sign, Libra, into Mars' territory of Scorpio will help the Sun, who we rely on for truth, clarity and self-definition. Additionally, by moving out of Libra, the Sun escapes the aspect of Rahu, which can also tend to confuse or muddle the pure intentions of the Sun.
Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars and Ketu, the south node of the Moon. With Mars in Libra and Ketu in Sagittarius, they are squeezing their own sign on either side. It may be helpful to take time out of the normal daily routine and inject some deep self-reflection. Planning ways to retreat from the norm in order form new strategies for managing self-care, exercise routines, work schedules, properties or spiritual practices could be very productive.
Activities supported by the Sun's light in Scorpio include introspection and meditative activities, deep cleaning and removal of waste, poetry, journaling, overcoming negative habits, resource management. Retrograde Mercury is very strong in the sense that retrograde motion can increase the inherent qualities of a planet as well as confusing them, much like the energy that the nodes Rahu and Ketu can add to a planet's effects when conjoining or aspecting.
In this case, retrograde Mercury has just dipped back into Swati nakshatra, which is ruled by Rahu as well as receiving a very tight aspect from exalted Rahu who currently occupies Mercury's sign of Gemini.
Rahu has become even more powerful due to his transit through Ardra nakshatra, which he rules. The end result is that there is a bunch of static being created around Mercury, so it may be difficult to get a clear message out or to receive the proper information or data around this time. It is best to wait at least a few days after Mercury resumes direct motion to attack problems that require the brilliance and flexibility of Mercury. All of the planets will remain in direct motion until Mercury initiates another retrograde cycle in mid-February Take a few deep breaths and don't get ahead of yourself, but do make plans for your communications and business projects to move along in the next few months.
That is a ton of zodiacal territory to cover and in the process he passes by Jupiter, Ketu, Saturn and Sun by mid-January.

This could be a busy time for building relationships, setting plans into motion, business deals, writing projects, educational pursuits and networking. Get to it, but again, with Jupiter running at top speed and Mercury running even faster, it may be a good idea to consciously slow down and deeply consider each step.
Recently re-emerged in the evening star form, visible in the western sky after sunset, the planet of oneness, Venus, moves through the challenging degrees of the gandanta between Scorpio and Sagittarius on November Let's watch Venus work the room as she glides into Jupiter's fire sign, not the most comfortable place for Venus, who will also be moving past Jupiter, Ketu and Saturn as she attempts to decorate for the holidays.
Fa la la! Venus is concerned with conduct between people, which ranges from friendships to diplomatic relations.

Sagittarius doesn't tolerate corruption or untruth for long, due to Jupiter's lordship. While Jupiter and Venus aren't friends, they are considered together to be the two great teachers of the planets, with Jupiter running the natural law department and Venus heading up the civil law department. In this, they are united in their purpose, to bring clarity to our minds and guide us toward truth, joy and fulfillment.
If we see Jupiter and Venus as one team and Saturn and Ketu as another, we may be witnessing the tide of growth, positivity, creativity and love Jupiter and Venus coming to wash over the corruption, negativity, destruction and distaste that has been exposed through the past half year by the close conjunction of Saturn and Ketu. By December 15 when Venus moves into Capricorn, she moves freely ahead of the pack. This is a great period of time to clean things up; homes, relationships, creative projects, scholarly requirements, lesson plans, religious organizations, the entire United States, etc.
As November comes to a close, a lunar cycle also ends and begins anew.
This is a good time to choose rest and rejuvination. This combination of Sun and Moon in the enigmatic territory of Scorpio occurs specifically in the nakshatra lunar mansion of Anuradha, lorded by the planet Saturn.
At this new Moon, we deserve a good pause, as the energy of transformation is extremely ripe. Deep transformation usually requires enough detachment to completely change course, so choose wisely; there is no need to discard resources or spend them mistakenly. With Jupiter having moved signs, we enter into a new Jupiter cycle for the next year, keeping in mind that Jupiter will be interacting with the agent of ultimate transformation, Ketu, through September, when Ketu moves from Sagittarius to Scorpio and its counterpart, Rahu, moves from Gemini to Taurus.
From November 5, , when Jupiter entered his own sign and became powerful to bring truth to the exposed corruption that has been a by-product of the Saturn-Ketu conjunction over the summer months, until Saturn will be moving out of Sagittarius and into Scorpio on January 23, , we have an opportunity to begin a clean-up project that will lead to new growth potential. It will be a study in how to balance holding on and letting go. For this approximately ten weeks, consider carefully what feels intuitively right to discard or separate from while at the same time observing what feels intuitively right to pursue, nurture and grow.
