Your September Horoscope for Gemini
Next month, Mars will go retrograde on October 30 but will slow down earlier, by mid-month, so it will be vital to launch an important product or event before Mars turns weak in retrograde on October 30. You will feel Mars begin to slow down two weeks before the official retrograde date. When Mars is retrograde, all tasks take longer and more energy to complete. Mars does not retrograde often, so we tend to take Mars’ assistance for granted in all competitive situations, and when Mars is not there to help, we wonder why projects seem arduous.
Mars will retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, at which time Mars will still be groggy and need time to ramp up. Mars will be perfect and back in good shape by March 16, but I am not sure you would have to wait that long. The new moon of January 21 is a beauty, and it’s in Aquarius, ideal for beginning anything important to you, such as to begin showing a major idea or new product or service—or a new romantic relationship.
In the meantime, this month, little copycat Mercury is about to sleep because he sees his big brother Mars preparing to sleep, and he wants to beat his brother to the punch, so Mercury will go retrograde first. Mercury will be retrograde from September 9 to October 2, so if you cannot wait until late January 2023 to unveil your current project, time your actions near October 7 to October 10, for that, too, would be a superb window for making a major initiation. Any later than early October and you will be getting too close to Mars beginning to slow down. You see why your aim must be very steady when you are choosing a date for an important action.
Something seems to be bubbling up with your residence or other property that you might own, hope to buy, rent, or sell. You might be in the mood to redecorate your home prior to the year-end holidays. You can make repairs and build a vision board of all the items you want to add—start in early October. While it’s not a good time to sign papers or close on a house or condo apartment, nor is it a good time to buy furniture, a rug, mattress, or any one of the many types of electronic products (including kitchen appliances), there are things you can do when Mercury is retrograde.
