Astrological Forecast for September 2022

by Lou Valentino

September begins with Labor Day weekend reminding us that summer is about to end but don’t put away your swimming suits yet as meteorologist are forecasting an above average temperatures for September.

Venus moves into the practical sign of Virgo on September 5th, Labor Day, giving those with Sun, Moon, rising in Virgo some extra charm till it moves into the sign of Libra on the 29th.

Virgos enjoy going back to school as they have clear minds with the Sun still moving through Virgo. The healers of the Zodiac who enjoy practical applications of health techniques to maintain a strong immune system.

This brings us to Mercury retrograde starting on September 9th and ending on October 2nd.

Mercury will station retrograde at 8 degrees of Libra and then station direct at 24 degrees of Virgo. This is a time for those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Libra or Virgo to step back from the hustle and bustle of life to reflect on life.

Libra wants better relationships and more balance by the end of this retrograde period and Virgo wants to buckle down with more discipline regarding school and health.

Mercury stations retrograde a day before the full Moon on September 10th in the sign of Pisces, its opposite sign, at 17 degrees (5:59AM EDT).

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Pisces or Virgo, you are finding balance between the practical day to day issues her on Earth and the spiritual more etheric life lived on more refined levels of creation.

This full Moon in Pisces has only 1 T-square which is less stressful than the last few full and new Moon charts. But we do have several planets in retrograde motion.

Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Pluto, and Neptune are all retrograde. The signs of Libra, Aries, Aquarius, Taurus, and Capricorn are all thinking more deeply about their priorities till each planet stations direct.

Pluto will station direct on October 8th giving Capricorns a needed break from taking life too seriously, but Mars stations retrograde on October 30th for the sign of Gemini. More on this in my October column.

With so many planets in retrograde motion, the economy slows down causing some concern over inflation and a sluggish wall street maintaining financial balance.

The T-square is between the Sun in Virgo opposing Moon in Pisces providing a full Moon and both square to Mars in Gemini. This creates a lot of communication breakdowns, but it creates balance in relationships.

This is the fight and makeup afterwards signature as Mercury will be trine, wind at your back, to Mars and the MC. Things taken out of context in both professional and personal relationships finds more balance by the new Moon in Libra on the 27th. Hang in their Virgo, Pisces, Libra, and Gemini’s.

Sometimes miscommunications in relationships can bring people closer together or define their motivations more clearly and move on from less than positive energies that only hinder spiritual evolution in partnerships.

It’s U.N. International Day of Peace on September 21st but is there peace in the world?

Both leaders of Ukraine and Russia will be going through lots of tensions around the full Moon on the 10th till the new Moon on the 25th. Pluto is backing off the U.S.A return in retrograde motion with hopes that the largest nuclear plant in Ukraine is not attacked and causing major issues that could change the whole direction of the war. Pray for balance and a better direction.

The Ukrainian people show invincible resilience as volunteers start to rebuild the buildings all on their own. God bless them. I pray that NATO can provide more protections for them. Maybe it will take a nuclear situation for NATO to act which is the only positive outcome if any nuclear planet is attacked.

Fires and floodings have been the major issues around the world with a very calm hurricane season so far. Because the waters have been heated up in a warmer than most season, America could experience some intense hurricane issues as we move through the Mercury retrograde period from September 10 all the way till October 16th, when Mercury will finally be out of its retrograde shadow.

I am more concerned about Mars turning retrograde by the end of October causing covid issues again as well as strong hurricanes at the end of October all the way through the end of 2022 all around the world.

Mars in retrograde motion can cause metastasis of health issues as it is the main player in immune system response. Retrograde motion can weaken the immune system response.

Playing “The Rain Melody”, Gandharva Veda that was put out by Maharishi’s organization can be helpful to bring more rain so farmers can grow crops, and everyone can have water to drink, bathe and cook with. You can find this melody online.

Gandharva Veda is a part of the Vedic tradition bringing balance to the laws of nature via sound/music. Ayurveda is the health system to bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.

The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd, and the Fall equinox starts (9:04PM EDT). Happy Birthday to Libra.

The very next day, September 23rd, Mercury retrogrades back into the sign of Virgo till it stations direct on October 2nd and moves back into the sign of Libra on October 11th.

This dance going on between Libra and Virgo shows deeper than normal feelings surrounding relationships.

The new Moon in Libra on September 25th at 2 degrees (5:55PM EDT) shows a new start to how those with Virgo and Libra energies maintain existing relationships and how those that are single want to move forward in the future and not repeating the same choices they made when it comes to partners in both their professional and personal lives.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in either Virgo or Libra you are most effected by the active Libra and Virgo energies at play.

The new Moon has 2 T-squares so a bit more tension for the signs of Gemini, Virgo and Aries, the signs involved in the T-squares. We could call the month of September, the month of finding balance in relationships.

Libra is a sociable sign and enjoys creating beauty in life. Balance of the scales shows more balance trying to find its way into the judicial system. Many dancers/ballerinas have a Libra signature in their charts. Bringing back appreciation for the arts in all its forms is increased.

This is a great time to form new negotiations between nations where there are tensions. Let’s pray all nations find balance and peace as the summer months brought so much stress in international politics including America with gun violence.

With Pluto trine to both Venus and Mercury in Virgo as well as sextile to Jupiter in Aries, the harsh violence we saw in international (Jupiter) affairs as well as intense weather patterns to cleanse the Earth seem more manageable with Pluto taking a break from the U.S.A return. At least for now.

Wising everyone a great September and the start of a new Fall season. Many blessings.
