What timing, again. It’s quite interesting how last week Mars in Gemini connecting with Jupiter in Aries on September 1, 2022, then Mercury in Libra connected in opposition to Jupiter in Aries on September 2, 2022 – how well timed for B*den’s war-like red-room proclamation as “the battle for the soul of the nation.” Considering Mars is the warrior, Gemini is about messages and Mercury indicates big announcements and declarations when connecting with Jupiter. Also, as the ruling planet of Pisces and Sagittarius, Jupiter is about the soul, beliefs, culture and world-views spread far and wide by the media. Especially with Jupiter in Aries identity based on nationality, race, religion and beliefs are emphasized. Jupiter is also associated to religion and we also had the Pope declare we are at the beginning of a 3rd world war at this time. The coincidences of timing connected to words and actions by world leaders is uncanny. The stark black and red imagery is right out of Hades just as we are in the middle of the Pluto Return of the US in Capricorn.
This week starts off with Venus entering Virgo on September 5, 2022 at 12:05 am ET.
Order and beauty can work together for great results, but criticism can be stifling to love. In relationships, greater potential for romance in the workplace is indicated during this period. However, Virgo the virgin reminds us of being more picky, reserved and resistant to advances as a more common approach for self-preservation now. Being treated with respect and dignity is in demand. A smart, healthy, put-together look is most appealing now.
The Sun in Virgo connects with the Destiny Point in Taurus September 8, 2022 6:17 pm ET. This week can give us big clues and increased awareness about health and the health system that determines how things unfold going forward. Food security, nutrition, farming, land, territory, money and all things we value are in focus. It’s a wise time to organize, store and preserve for the winter. Realizations this week can change the future. The Sun in Virgo will also connect with nearby Uranus in Taurus on the 11th, after the Full Moon in Pisces on the 10th, discussed below.
Mercury stations Retrograde in Libra on September 9, 2022 at 11:38 pm ET.
During a Mercury Retrograde cycle we can expect reversals, and back-tracking. Hidden messages and meanings, double-speak and double entendres could be used a lot. The definitions of words being changed to uphold biases and to support deceptions are likely to increase with Mercury Retrograde.
Duality is in focus with this Mercury Retrograde, the measure of opposites, and how they relate and associate with one another. It’s a time to recognize where life needs to find balance.
Changing circumstances in your relationships of all types are in focus during this period. How can you make your relationships better? Being calm and honest while also prioritizing mutual respect can help ease tension when in disagreements between yourself and others.
Sometimes the only way things can change is if you speak up. Other times, you’ll need to bite your lip to resist escalating tensions and to keep the peace. Choices in responses make a big difference in how things play out now, so take some time to think and rethink before proceeding. Consider more than one point of view and the various potential outcomes to help you make best decisions now.
Synchronicities will be significantly increased and more notable during this period. Strange coincidences and deja vu experiences are more likely to grab your attention. Be mindful of repetitions and patterns that stand out to you. They will reveal clues to the truth.
Libra is associated with truth, law, fairness, judgment and justice, all of which need a good rethink this month.
As an air sign, Mercury in Libra is closely associated with information exchanges, so it is especially necessary to be conscious of how biases play a role in how we relate to others.
We can expect a lot of flip-flopping of opinions and lots of contradictions in information throughout September and into October.
Misinformation in the air will be especially heightened now. Don’t believe everything you hear and don’t depend on hearsay as a confirmation of truth. A lot of lies to cause divisions could be emphasized. It takes objective truth and common sense to see through false perceptions now.
People are likely to say things or have biased opinions that are based on a lack of information, and in many cases intentional ignorance. It will be obvious that many people don’t fully understand the complete picture of subjects they are talking about, and are unable or unwilling to see more than one side of the issue. When they later realize their mistake they will regret the decisions they made, or the things they said when they didn’t know the full story.
Truths and untruths are highlighted in all types of relationships now. How people are attached to ideas and play mind-games with themselves and others will be more notable while Mercury is Retrograde in Libra. Is it the truth or perception of truth that matters? Can people handle the truth or do people choose deny the truth with cognitive dissonance for personal comfort?

Mercury Retrograde is the trickster and can also be like the sleuth, peering more deeply into issues, investigating to find the truth. This can be especially important now as we are likely going to see a lot of examples of biases especially associated to laws, and how decisions are made – are they just or unjust?
Actions that contradict words will reveal a lot of truth while Mercury is Retrograde, enhanced further by Mars in fellow air sign Gemini now.
We are reminded that parts of our lives can be put out of balance or into balance by a matter of our choices. Everything in the world can change, by making the decision in how it changes.
If you’re feeling out of balance, getting back into something creative and artistic that stimulates your mind and helps bring a sense of harmony and balance to your life is worth reconsidering.
People’s minds are likely to be changed on a lot of issues, and relationships will be affected by the time Mercury finishes this Retrograde cycle.
Money matters, the economy, food and health are also getting reconsidered now, and people will be surprised by what they learn and hear, especially those that have been living in a one-sided biased version of reality, opposite points of view and information revealed during this period could burst that bubble.
As Mercury will also be in Virgo again during this Mercury Retrograde between September 23rd and October 10th, we can expect what’s been going on in the health sector to have quite a bit of back tracking and reversals as people seek real facts and data and ask a lot of questions, especially wherever information doesn’t make sense and doesn’t add up.
We have the Full Moon in Pisces on September 10, 2022 5:58 am ET at 17 degrees.
Pisces is best as spiritual wisdom, compassion, fantasy and creativity, and at worst is delusions, and deception. We could see secrets and great unknowns revealed with this Full Moon in Pisces.
Especially considering we have Mercury Retrograde now, as the trickster miscommunications, double-speak and hidden messages are in the air, and with the Full Moon in Pisces indicating a big spotlight on fantasies, unclear perceptions, secrets and deceptions, it’s smart to be skeptical and to ask lots of follow up questions to get to the bottom of things now.
This Full Moon indicates the potential for dramatic, emotional responses and feelings. In the larger context of what people believe, we could see events staged to cause emotional effects. Illusions can alter what people think is reality. Hysterical behavior could be emphasized and enhanced by over-the-top media performances.
Artists and creative types will find this time to be moving and inspiring. The higher philosophical qualities of life and spiritual perspectives of purpose in life are highlighted now.
Pay extra attention to your dreams now.
The Sun in Virgo connects with Uranus in Taurus September 11, 2022 9:08 am ET. Information about health and technology revealed now can turn on a light bulb about our future. Economic issues, food, energy and supplies are subjects of discussion and further reflection now. In this day and age, is “the science” the truth, or are scientific opinions about the money and political pressure behind them? It’s a good time to ask lots of probing questions as we reevaluate the future we have been manifesting. Expect sudden surprises this week that bring greater awareness.
