Your September Horoscope for Gemini
Mars’ usual stay in a sign is six or seven weeks. This time Mars will stay in your sign until March 25 because Mars will retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the middle of his stay in Gemini. The last time Mars went retrograde in Gemini was during the period November 15, 2007, to January 30, 2008, and prior to that, we have to go back to October 28, 1943, until January 10, 1944, so there is a good chance you may not have been born yet. As you can see, this doesn’t happen very often.
Mars in Gemini, your first house (whether you have a Gemini birthday or have Gemini rising), suggests you will be very focused on how you appear in the world. In fact, you may decide to go to a cosmetic surgeon, dermatologist, or a cosmetic dentist to have changes made to your face, to look younger. If this is something you plan to do, you must do it well in advance of Mars retrograde on October 30, or put off the idea until after March 17 (for a lot of reasons that’s the date.) Mars’ rabble-rousing little brother Mercury will be retrograde in September, so if you are about to make improvements to your face, do it in the first week of October, after October 2.

You may redo your image in terms of the clothing you wear too, perhaps with the help of a stylist or by doing research in all the fashion magazines you love. You may feel you’ve been dressing too dowdy, older than you your age belies or older than you feel inside. If so, whether you are male or female, this trend of Mars will help you update your look to one that is chic and more in tune with the “you” you have become. Gemini is associated with youth, so this visit of Mars could bring subtle (or extreme), but very welcome, changes. You may ask your hair stylist to suggest changes in the way you wear your hair or its color.
You may also change your name. If you are woman, perhaps you will soon be married, or if a writer of either sex, to turn your pen name into your legal name. Creative people, such as actors do this, as do musicians and designers. Or you may have never liked your name and will go to the courts to have this rectified.
