Every Monday I talk about what’s happening in astrology for the week ahead revealing a variety of possibilities relating to our personal lives and the bigger picture of the world.
This should be an interesting week with so much attention on the burial of the Queen and the changing future, with King Charles III seated on the throne during the Full Moon in Pisces. Now we are heading toward the New Moon in Libra on September 25th.
We have the Autumn Equinox when the The Sun enters Libra on September 22, 2022 9:04 pm ET.
The Sun will also conjunct Mercury Retrograde in Libra on September 23, 2022 2:49 am ET.
Mercury Retrograde in Libra can show us all kinds of examples of what needs to be changed to bring us back into balance. With the world upside-down and reversed in so many ways, greater evidence of hypocrisy, bias, and cognitive dissonance keeps being revealed with each passing day.
On the final day of Mercury Retrograde in Libra before entering back into Virgo we can expect disagreements on what is true and what is not true to be in the spotlight. In all types of relationships, differences of opinions can cause all sorts of problems, but it can also reveal the truth of who people really are.
What people say while Mercury is Retrograde can also be sometimes better left unsaid. People can put their foot in their mouth saying the most inappropriate things, and disagreements can arise that are based on misinformation and short sighted points of view. Ignorant opinions can be so plentiful you might want to just step away and let it pass.
Mercury Retrograde leaves Libra and enters back into Virgo September 23, 2022 8:05 am ET. Linking Libra and Virgo now, we are reminded of how truth and justice are supposed to be the foundation of investigation, with the discrepancies that have been happening in the health sector in focus. It’s wise to have another look at your nutrition, food and healthcare regimen is like and note what needs to be fixed and changed to make it better for yourself. Reversals, regrets and backtracking on health decisions are likely now.
The healthcare industry and all related to it now could show us some insider information about what’s been happening behind the scenes, which could change a lot of people’s minds. Sleuthing Mercury Retrograde may not get everything right, but will keep looking for the real data through all the misinformation. What is said now can’t be trusted and should be researched much further.
With the energy sector, the supply chain and food supplies going through changes now with Uranus and the Destiny Point in Taurus signifying a focus on these areas of our lives now, getting extra supplies for security during the winter months would be smart.
New Moon in Libra September 25, 2022.
Joining the Sun in Libra we have the New Moon in Libra on September 25, 2022 at 5:54 pm ET. The dawn of a new day could reveal everything has changed.
This week could bring us a major turning point with a shift of balance in our perception of reality.
This New Moon (and Sun) in Libra is directly opposite Jupiter Retrograde in Aries. There is a lot of fire and air associated with this New Moon in Libra. This could be a big news day, egos could flair into excessive exaggerations, and especially talk of war is likely, reminding us that what we need is peace, love, truth, balance, and harmony that Libra represents in its higher aspect. Identity in all it’s manifestations ranging from unique personal characteristics, to beliefs, race and nationality are emphasized with this New Moon in Libra. We could also see a counterbalance to overt exaggerations of identity.
What is so obviously topsy turvy these days and needs to be rebalanced is justice, finance, and relationships. The Libra scales were originally used in Roman times to weigh money (gold, silver, bronze,copper) as a measure of value in exchange for goods like food, so we can expect these topics to be in focus at this time.
What people think and believe could especially be at odds now and highly debatable. Big rumors are possible. With Mercury Retrograde now as well, don’t believe everything you hear. Conversations could be at odds with inflated points of view, but what you learn could also be eye opening. Whatever you are curious, or unsure, about could be worth researching further.
We could see plane and travel related circumstances at this time, especially associated to international issues. Long distance travel delays, or flights cancelled could get attention. Travel and plane related issues and news associated to war are indicated. New updates and changes to airlines are possible.
Astrologically speaking, what you value, your principles. truth and justice are of prime importance going forward with this New Moon in Libra. How people think and act in their relationships is highlighted. As an individual, a part of culture and society, what direction are you going to head in and contribute to help create balance and valuable change in the world? Being an innovator, not a follower, gives you the power to create changes you want.
Also spanning the events of this week, Venus, the ruler of Libra and Taurus, is in Virgo now and connects with Uranus in Taurus on September 20, 2022 at 12:44 am ET. Surprises in finance, security and health are in focus as we head toward the New Moon in Libra on the 25th. With Uranus a revolutionary connecting with Venus, perhaps the real revolution the world needs is to return to love.
Because we have the Destiny Point in Taurus and Uranus, this draws the significance of correlations of what’s going on in the world now with energy (electrical, nuclear, fuel, etc), environment, resources, agricultural and food supplies, financial security, all associated to science and technology.
Venus in Virgo is also opposite Neptune in Pisces this week, on September 24, 2022 4:50 am ET giving us another reminder of the illusions, fantasies and deceptions associated with our body’s, health and finance now. Turn it around. Love, compassion and spirituality can help discover the meaning of life. Creativity, imagination and artistry can be good for your soul.
