Your September Horoscope for Aquarius
Mars was PARTLY retrograde in Gemini from October 19, 1958, to December 20, 1958, and then PARTLY retrograde in Gemini from November 6, 1975, to January 20, 1976. Next, Mars was PARTLY retrograde in Gemini from November 15, 2007, to January 30, 2008. After that, we come to where we are now, but this time, like in 1943-1944, Mars will retrograde the entire time in Gemini. As you see, this is very rare.
Mars retrogrades every two years, always in a different sign, so we get used to having him silently behind us, helping us compete with determination, confidence, and courage. Things move along fairly smoothly when Mars is moving ahead, but when Mars is retrograde, we find that the pace of life slows down. We also change our mind—and in your case, you may waffle back and forth about how much you love the new person you are dating. I say don’t make any decision about your relationship when Mars is retrograde. Let the period pass, and see how you feel by the end of January 2023, leaving some space from January 12.
Alternatively, you may change your mind about how you want a creative project to go. For example, if you are writing a novel, you may reshape one or more of the characters.
Gemini is a sign that blends perfectly with your energy, for both Gemini and Aquarius are air signs. Gemini is not only affiliated with overall communication but also with the words you use in conversation, especially to the person you are starting to datex or have been dating a long time now, as well as your children. How well you communicate with one of these people in your life will matter quite a bit.
On another thought, completely separate from what I just said, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Aquarians in love would write love poems or love letters? Texting and email have taken the tenderness out of communication. Alas, I am being nostalgic, and I admit am a hopeless romantic. It might be fun to at least memorize a poem that you especially like to recite to the one you love while Mars is in Gemini.
