Pisces Full Moon, Mars Enters Sagittarius

The Full Moon is on Friday, September 16, @ 0 deg Pisces. This marks the culmination of the energies of the Hindu lunar month Bhadrapada, named for the nakshatra (lunar sign) that the full Moon falls in: Purva Bhadra. The Full Moon will be nearly directly across from Jupiter, and thus will aid in manifesting Jupiter's significations of Optimism, Truth, Justice, Opportunity, etc.
Mars Changes Signs, entering Sagittarius, on Saturday, Sept 17. After spending most of 2016 in Scorpio (due to going through a retrograde period in that sign), Mars finally moves on in the zodiac. Mars is a fiery planet; Sagittarius is a fire sign. Thus the energy of Mars manifests strongly while in Sagittarius. Also, by moving into Sagittarius, Mars gets away from the inhibiting energy of its enemy Saturn, which will remain in Scorpio until the end of January. Mars in Sagittarius will emphasize the passion and enthusiasm of that sign. But Mars is also the planet of Combat; Sagittarius is known for Willfulness and Devotion to one's own Beliefs. Thus, the "true-believers" of whatever stripe, will get a boost from this transit. Mars remains in Sagittarius until October 31.
