September 2022 Love Tips

September provides us with two diverse types of elemental signs that create an opportunity to learn the value of balance and personal harmony. We have the Earthy sign of Virgo, which can be pretty content with a life flavored by routine and structure. Meantime we have the Air sign of Libra that enjoys the ebb and flow of change that brings on new inspirations and keeps things interesting.

We should be aware of the aspects of September, including Mercury, which will be retrograde both in Virgo and Libra, and Mars retrograde in Gemini. September can be a tumultuous month due to the retrogrades, which will impact our communication skills, physical levels, and mental focus. 

I recommend that you keep a journal and some type of organizational system since things can be confusing during this period. A journal will help you track emotional cycles and offer a method for venting and expressing your inner thoughts. This cycle is not the best period to confront situations but an ideal time to observe and analyze.

September 2022 Monthly Astrological Forecast

The positions of the planets play an important role this month, so let’s start by taking a deeper dive into the various transits and what you can expect as a result.

Personal Planetary Transits for Sun Signs, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars

Sun in Virgo (August 22, 2022 - September 21, 2022)

Virgo is a mutable Earth sign, while Taurus is fixed and Capricorn Cardinal. As a mutable Earth sign, Virgo though it appreciates structure, it is adaptable and capable of revising its views. During the Sun Sign of Virgo, it is an ideal time to modify things in your life that have become chaotic and unstable. It is also a decent time to enjoy activities with loved ones including working out, cooking healthy foods together, and simply improving the quality of your relationship. At the beginning of the month, we have Mars in Gemini forming a square Sun in Virgo, enhancing aggressive tendencies, and needing more physical activities, which often means pushing oneself to exhaustion.

Sun in Libra (September 22, 2022 – October 21, 2022)

As the Sun moves into Libra, we benefit from a trine with Mars in Gemini, which allows us to balance our physical drive with some rest. We evaluate our needs, as the Sun in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. We prioritize our time and not let others influence our actions, especially since Jupiter in Aries is the opposite of Sun in Libra. Things can be challenging throughout September, but it restores as the month progresses forward.

Mercury Transits and Retrogrades

September will be challenged with Mercury changing gears and going retrograde. It starts with Mercury in Libra direct; then, on September 10th, it goes retrograde until October 2nd. However, while still retrograde, Mercury goes back into Virgo on September 24th and remains there until it goes direct on October 10th. Are we confused yet? It won’t be so bad if you prepare by planning ahead. Here is a brief breakdown to help you figure out your coping strategies.

Mercury in Libra (Direct on August 27, 2022 – September 9, 2022)

During this period, you are pretty mindful of how you word things and prone to self-censoring to avoid conflicts. There is a tendency to think before expressing yourself, leading to overthinking and hesitation. However, for the most part, you manage well during this cycle.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra (September 9, 2022 – September 24, 2022)

The excellent balance of words and thoughts reach a period of challenges during this two-week cycle with Mercury in Libra in the middle of September. You will feel foggy and unsettled when expressing your thoughts or feelings. There is a sense of feeling stifled and restricted, and feeling misunderstood.

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo (September 24, 2022 – October 2, 2022)

The Mercury retrograde continues to create confusion; however, as of September 24th, it enters the Earth sign of Virgo. During this period, you find yourself feeling not only restricted but easily annoyed and irritated by others. You may find yourself feeling a bit combative and intolerant of others. The best way to handle this period is to meditate and journal to avoid confrontation and help you understand the root of your issues.

Venus in Virgo (September 6, 2022 – September 30, 2022)

Individuals with Venus in Virgo can be slow to fall in love, but it takes a long time to let go once they do. It is safe to say that the process of falling in love is not a random or flaky act for those who have Venus in Virgo. Love is a long-term commitment that begins slowly and grows as time moves on. Though Venus in Virgo may not appear as outwardly demonstrative in the romantic department, a sense of security and realness reassures us when it comes to love. Love under Venus in Virgo may not be all fireworks and spontaneity, but it is stable and solid. It is an ideal time to work on relationship issues and create tangible changes during this period.

Mars in Gemini (August 20, 2022 - March 26, 2023)

Mars in Gemini tends to manifest as fluctuating bouts of energy that do not remain consistent due to physical and mental dips. Mars can be forceful yet unpredictable in an air sign like Gemini. Trying to debate the aspects of Mars in Gemini can be like running after cats focused on a moving beam of erratic lights. The characteristics of Mars are heightened by Gemini's natural mercurial qualities, which can produce negative and positive patterns. On the negative side, words are weaponized and used to reduce others to pieces, triggering disagreements and contributing to emotional damage. On the positive side, our conversations skills are witty and loaded with brilliant humor making us a social magnet. It is a superb cycle for creative individuals increasing their productivity or anyone looking to express themselves to the fullest.

Full Moon Aspects in September 2022

Full Harvest Moon in Pisces - September 10, 2022

The Moon in Pisces opposes Sun in Virgo, creating a natural struggle between trusting your gut and mind. The pull-in and push opposition can be confusing and can foster the scenario of indecisiveness. The mutable energies of two opposing elements of water and earth can be a blessing and a curse. However, instead of selecting one force over another, by embracing the two, we create harmony.

Planetary Transits of the Outer Planets. (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto)

Jupiter in Aries

Jupiter will be in Aries from May 12, 2022, until May 17, 2023. Jupiter in Aries will make us feel unstoppable and capable of doing all sorts of things regardless of our skills and abilities. It is a significant aspect of getting us going, trying new adventures, and embracing changes, especially in areas we had been stuck on. During the transits of Sun in Virgo, Jupiter in Aries will create a quincunx which provides us with the opportunity to examine areas in our lives that need improving. Since we will feel unstoppable due to the aspects of Jupiter, it is a blessing to have Sun in Virgo to keep us from making impulsive decisions. Vibrations will shift as Sun enters Libra, which opposes Jupiter in Aries. The opposition between Aries and Libra can create an internal conflict between desires for actions and a need to analyze things. You may find yourself undoing your efforts by hesitating too much or simply changing your mind. Keep in mind Libra is about balance and examining situations before jumping in, while Aries likes to jump in and then think; however, regardless of the inner conflict, you manage and overcome conditions to your benefit.

Saturn in Aquarius

Saturn in Aquarius began on December 18, 2020 and lasts until March 8, 2023. In September, Saturn in Aquarius forms a quincunx to Sun in Virgo and a trine to Sun in Libra. The combination of Aquarius, an air sign, and Virgo, an Earth sign, can seem a bit restricting and confining at times. However, in this placement, we have an ideal time for creating tangible and stable things in one’s life. An excellent period for putting thoughts into action, especially when using the energy of Saturn, which creates structure and actualization of our efforts. Ideas take form and develop into realities rather than remain in a state of inertia. The Sun in Libra creates a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, which brings balance and steadiness, thus solidifying the qualities of Virgo.

Uranus in Taurus

Uranus in Taurus happens between May 15, 2018, through April 27, 2026. There is a lovely trine between Uranus in Taurus and Sun in Virgo, creating a need to propel forward and begin new projects. It is an excellent time for starting new cycles, as long as it does not involve signing contracts or leases. Keep in mind, though there is a trine between Uranus in Taurus and Sun in Virgo, we do have Mercury retrograde in Libra. During this cycle, take advantage to brainstorm and solidify ideas. Do get things started, but remember, you may adjust some of the ideas you put forth by expanding or adding additional touches down the road. Regardless, take advantage of this time to put plans into action and manifest your dreams.

Neptune in Pisces

Neptune in Pisces began on February 3, 2012, and lasts until March 30, 2025. While Neptune is in Pisces, strong spiritual and psychic impressions influence your views. Individuals will want to create and express ideas since Neptune amplifies the imagination to the next level. During the beginning of September, while the Sun is in Virgo until the 21st, Neptune in Pisces will be in opposition. The aspects of Sun in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces create a desire to balance the imagination with reality.

Pluto in Capricorn

Finally, Pluto in Capricorn continues its crawl along from November 27, 2008, until January 14, 2024. The transits of Pluto in Capricorn increase one’s drive and motivation. During this transit, one tends to feel unstoppable and driven to achieve personal goals, often at the expense of others. In September, Pluto in Capricorn will be trine to Sun in Virgo, reinforcing the need to get things done and not allowing distractions to move forward. It is an ambitious period centered around completing projects and focusing on personal needs.

Love Tips for Every Zodiac Sign – September 2022

To help you make the most of the aspects of this month, here are some tips:

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

At the beginning of September, when Sun is in Virgo, Aries will find themselves feeling grounded and a bit more focused than typical. It is an ideal time for achieving goals and keeping promises to loved ones. You should think a bit more during Jupiter retrograde in Aries before jumping into things headfirst. The retrograde allows you to be mindful and focus on what actually matters, home life and those closest to you. This period creates a nice balance for those in relationships. When the Sun enters Libra, which is in opposition to Sun in Aries, you may struggle to get some of your needs met or communicate clearly due to a few retrograde cycles in September.

Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Sun in Virgo creates a pleasant trine to Sun in Taurus, making the beginning of September a pleasant and easy-going cycle. However, since Mercury is in Libra and goes retrograde on September 10th, it is only fair to say that communication styles will require some mindfulness and patience. You will manage to regain your harmony since Libra is quincunx Taurus which helps balance out the relationship snags as a result of not reacting or jumping to conclusions. This month will not be dull; however, pace yourself and avoid overthinking the small stuff.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The planet Mercury plays a significant role in September since its both the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, plus it will be in retrograde in Libra. The beginning of September can start with some mild conflicts resulting from communication being a bit off balance. However, your natural charm will allow you to smooth things out faster than most during Mercury retrograde in Libra since it forms a trine to Sun in Gemini. You will work a little harder to smooth things out with your loved ones, but don’t fret; you are an expert in charisma and delight, which helps you defuse even the most stubborn. For you, relationships, especially romantic ones, will be packed with sparks during this period.

Cancer (June 21 – July 21)

The beginning of September brings on a pleasant and relaxed period for you, with Sun in Virgo creating a sextile to Sun in Cancer. You will find that things function nicely, even when things are not perfect, due to Mercury being in Libra, which creates a square to your Sun. You find ways to make things work since you remain calm and grounded until the Sun enters Libra on September 22nd. During this cycle, you may find your partner or others a bit inpatient; however, you do not need to take anything personally; just remember to breathe and detach with love and make it through. The key to managing this month is to stay calm and grounded by using meditation and journaling.

Leo (July 22 – August 21)

In September, you feel distracted and not like your typical self. Due to the retrograde from September 10th until October 2nd in Libra, you will feel misunderstood and frustrated in personal and work relationships. You may find yourself being distracted and, as a result, not communicating your needs or thoughts as clearly. Avoid unnecessary strife by practicing mindfulness. Though relationships with others may not be as harmonious as you like, you will be able to concentrate on personal goals and self-improvement projects. It is an excellent cycle to review old ideas, revamp pending projects or update personal goals.

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)

September is a mixed bag for you due to Sun in Virgo squaring Mars in Gemini, Mercury going retrograde in Libra on the 10th, and Jupiter in Pisces creating an opposition. You have lots on your plate during this transit, so prepare, and you will manage. You may feel a bit stagnated, specifically in the work sector. In love and personal connections, you will feel a stronger bond, even though you may not feel your communication is as smooth as you like. Unlike your career, romance is stable and solid for you. You appreciate those in your life more and go out of your way to demonstrate your feelings more during this time, which pays off.

Libra (September 22 – October 21)

September seems to offer you an opportunity to gain insight and reexamine what matters in your life. When Mercury goes retrograde in Libra, you will examine the life and develop a solid need to prioritize what matters the most. The Sun in Virgo creates a semi-sextile to Sun in Libra, creating an opportunity to face things that make you uncomfortable or need to improve. When we combine Mercury retrograde with Sun in Virgo, you will be forced to make changes, especially in vital areas such as relationships or work. Mars in Gemini creates a trine to your Sun, which will allow you to have the proper drive and motivation to face whatever you have avoided and make all necessary changes.

Scorpio (October 22 – November 21)

September has some exciting aspects, with Mercury going retrograde in Libra and Mars in Gemini forming a quincunx to your Sun. You maintain a solid disposition despite the chaos you witness during September. Jupiter is retrograde in Pisces, creating a trine to your Sun, bringing you opportunities that compel you to review your career goals and make some upgrades or necessary changes. In addition, with the aspects of Mars in Gemini forming a quincunx to your Sun, you will have to adjust your thinking and use patience and self-control to manage affairs of the heart. During the retrograde, watch what you say so you do not create permanent damage to vital relationships.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

The elements of Earth in Virgo and Air in Libra provide your fiery sign with stability and motivation to propel forward; however, due to Mercury in retrograde, it would be wiser to chill. Though Sun in Virgo squares Sun in Sagittarius, you still find the silver lining. It provides your fire with the stability it requires to manifest ideas into action. The transits of Mars in Gemini may create issues when trying to focus and get things going, especially with Mercury being retrograde in Libra until October. Take this month to chill and pace yourself. It is an ideal month to unwind and spend time with loved ones at home, cooking or enjoying simple things.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

September begins with Sun in Virgo, creating a trine to Sun in Capricorn, allowing you to feel a bit more solid than most, while Mercury retrograde in Libra creates communication havoc. Pluto is in Capricorn is conjunct with Sun in Capricorn, forcing you to reevaluate what matters and what needs to change in a practical and productive way. As things become chaotic during the Mercury retrograde, you will revisit old situations and put unfinished business to rest. You gravitate towards changes, either improving or getting rid of aspects that no longer suit your needs when it comes to relationships. Remember that changing or evaluating your relationships' quality is not necessarily the worst thing since it can bring improvement and a higher level of intimacy that may have been lacking.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

September is not the worse month for Aquarius, even with Mercury retrograde in Libra. The retrograde energy will force you to slow down a bit, allowing you to evaluate situations and review things that you may have overlooked. The aspect of Mars in Gemini is trine to Sun in Aquarius, giving you an energy booster and the endurance to complete projects and goals. Sun in Virgo does create a need to retrieve and focus on yourself, especially when Mercury is generating a bit of havoc. You may find yourself alternating between spending time alone or with loved ones. The key for you this month is to balance your time to function without draining yourself.

Pisces (February 19 – March 21)

September brings forth a desire to expand romantically since Neptune in Pisces amplifies your imagination; however, with Sun in Virgo in opposition, there is a strong need to remain solid and grounded. During September, you may struggle with loved ones who fail to agree completely with your ideological views and may get extra irritated with your perception of things. Mercury retrograde in Libra makes communication a big fizzy when combined with the elements of Neptune. Use this period as an opportunity to focus on creating inner balance since you will need it, especially during the retrograde cycle.
