Welcome to your brand new weekly horoscope! The week ahead is jampacked with astral activity and the cosmos delivers a brand-new beginning. Relationships remain a theme with Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, activating our desire to try new things when it comes to romance. But since confusing Neptune will be involved, we must be wise when making choices.
September 22 is a big day as the Sun enters Libra, heralding the arrival of the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. This movement will reaffirm the focus on relationships over the next four weeks. Pay attention to what comes up for you on this day, as big epiphanies are bound to occur, particularly around the topic of relationships and contracts.
On Friday, Mercury enters Virgo while in retrograde motion (we're still experiencing the third Mercury retrograde of 2022). Be prepared to feel a funny vibe today, as this astronomical movement is always strangely perceived from our perspective here on Earth. Your productivity will also slow, making this a good day to keep a low profile as well as workload.
On Sunday, the next new moon occurs in the sign of Libra, marking the beginning of another lunar cycle. This September 2022 new moon is activating retrograde Jupiter, the planet of abundance. It is ideal for putting in place the changes you have been considering pertinent. By planting the seed, you’re setting yourself up for big-time success in 2023!
So check what the stars have in store for your zodiac sign during the week ahead—and don't forget to check your rising as well as your sun sign horoscope (and if you want even more information, check your September 2022 horoscope and your 2022 horoscope predictions too).
