Jyotish, or Vedic astrology for September, 2016 brings the opportunity for a reprieve from all the drama. We also have two eclipses, Mercury retrograde, and the end to the problematic Saturn/ Mars conjunction.
The new Moon and a solar eclipse start off the month in Jyotish or Vedic astrology for September, 2016. The eclipse is only visible in most of Africa, Western Australia, and Southern Asia. Thus, these are the locations which must exercise caution. Are your family needs eclipsing your own needs? Are you over-indulging? It’s a day to law low and conserve your energies.
The month also begins with Mercury retrograde. You’ll spend a lot of time reviewing, revisiting, and re-thinking your plans and strategies.

MARS IN SAGITTARIUS
The highlight in Vedic astrology for September, 2016 is that Mars and Saturn separate on the 18th. This push/ pull fire and ice dynamic finally comes to an end. Until they separate, there is still the potential for many natural disasters and political upheaval. As Mars enters Sagittarius, take this opportunity to re-evaluate your dharma. Mars is the bold planet of action. What steps will you take to concertize your plans towards your higher calling? Be specific and write down your plans. Create a timeline for yourself.

Venus, the planet of love and partnership, is debilitated until September 19. You feel that you have to make that extra effort in your romantic life, but your strategies are unskillfully executed and poorly received. The way in which you communicate your intentions to your partner takes on even greater importance. From September 19 to month end, Venus regains strength. Relationships take on added significance as matters of the heart are very prominent. It can be your top priority as the desire for a fulfilling romantic partnership becomes a foremost priority.
