Your September Horoscope for Gemini
Mercury will keep going backward in Libra, but then on September 23 will retrograde into Virgo, your home sector. You may see changes or delays concerning activity at home (such as a renovation or repair job) or other property, or need to rethink a plan for a certain family member, such as a parent. If you had been thinking of buying a vacation home, you may change your mind when your bid is rejected because the home owner set the rental price too high for your taste. Again, these are examples I thought of to get you thinking of how Mercury retrograde might affect you. As a Gemini, you are a flexible person, and that will always allow you to outwit Mercury. After all, Mercury is your ruling planet and is responsible for your awesome intelligence and ability to continually come up with a plan B when you hit a roadblock.
Two weeks before the start of Mercury retrograde, you begin to feel his slowdown. Mercury will go direct on October 2, and I find at the end of any Mercury retrograde period, he returns to normal fairly quickly, but it’s always wise to leave a space of several days at the end (October 2) for safety before acting.
Now let’s talk about the new moon last month that occurred on August 27 in Virgo, 4 degrees, your fourth house of home and family. That new moon will affect you strongly and positively in September and beyond. You will have opportunities to make your home comfortable and more stylish, and what makes it so exciting is that Mercury, which rules Virgo, was not yet retrograde at the time the new moon appeared, and Mercury would be in perfect angle to Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in Gemini, all in your favor. Pluto rules basements, wall structure, plumbing and, believe it or not, also de-cluttering, all favorable areas for you to look into to improve your home experience as September begins. Pluto is in your eighth house, which rules all kinds of financial activities including loans, such as mortgages and home improvement loans. If you are “shopping” for money, it looks as though your banker would be willing to approve a sum for you.
Uranus, on his best behavior, will zing a missive to Venus over September 17-19, so an unforeseen romantic meeting could occur, or you may receive a special surprise from the person you married to or are dating. Life will be glorious.
