September astrology events usher in a new season and a change of energy.
After an eventful Leo season this summer, we're now tapping into an organization mindset and taking stock of how 2022 has unfolded thus far. Much like the back-to-school season, September's cosmic lineup asks us to get things in order.
And, according to our September horoscope, there will be a heavy focus on relationships over the next 30 days—thanks largely to Mercury retrograde's influence—so do be aware of the way in which you communicate with your loved ones.
Ready to see what's on the calendar? We have you covered.
September astrology events
- When: September 9 to October 2, 2022
*Poltergeist voice* "It's back!"
Mercury retrograde will gifts us with its third round this fall before closing out 2022 with four transits in total. We'll be hyper-focused on those organization and communication factors.
"Virgo’s Mercurial influence will likely turn the details of the next retrograde inside out, causing us to consider our organization and thoroughness," says astrologer Liz Simmons (opens in new tab). "Libra’s Venusian energy may encourage us to consider the reciprocity of our commitments during the next retrograde."
Though the buzzy astro event often gets a bad rep, there's no need to fear—think of it as a time to revise, like any good retrograde. But, if you're still feeling a tad on edge, have a look at our favorite crystals for Mercury Retrograde or laugh it all off with these silly Mercury retrograde memes, all great gifts astrology fans can appreciate.

The Full Moon
- When: September 10, 2022
"Pisces energy is going to be on full blast, so we may feel like we are within and without," says Simmons. "Staying present or grounded in reality might be difficult during a mystical moon. It’s important to find the middle ground so that the full moon allows us to explore our fantastical side without getting lost in it."
The Autumnal Equinox
- When: September 22, 2022
Astrologer Noush (opens in new tab) considers the autumnal equinox as a mid-point check-in. What's been working in 2022 up until now? What needs to be adjusted? It's time to address those areas of your life.
"Just as the leaves change color, it's kind of an opportunity for us to change our own ways so we can either adapt to what this new season is bringing in for us or how we can kind of let go of what no longer fits with the balance," she says.
An astrologer, creative and crystal enthusiast, Noush believes in the combination of energy healing and practical spirituality to bring meaning into our lives.

- When: September 22, 2022
Though much of the fall is dedicated to structure and planning, you can consider Libra season as a cooling point and a chance to admire all the progress you've made throughout Virgo season.
"During Libra season it's sort of like we are reconnecting with our ability to relax because so much of Virgo season was about getting organized," astrologer Renée Watt (opens in new tab) previously told My Imperfect Life. "It's kind of like permission to enjoy the fruits of your labor."
The New Moon
- When: September 25, 2022
