Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs September 12th 2022
Ditch the big blurt
Wait for the final outcome
Change the conversation
Put that inner editor to work this week and please – think before your say what’s on the tip of your tongue, Aries. Also fact-check before you act as you may be missing a crucial piece of the puzzle. The narky, snarky square between ruler Mars in your 3rd of simply gotta say it and Venus in your 6th of work points to something on your mind. But is saying what you need to say the right move?
This can bring up conflicts with co-workers or those your do business with, as well as a significant other. The energy this week is fiery, fast-paced and mutable. Which means it can change in a heart-beat. Furthermore, the Sun also in your 6th opposes Neptune in your 12th on the same day as that Venus/Mars square may make you want to yell ‘Enough, already!’. And here’s where the bigger picture comes in. You may be so caught up in your (justifiable) response you no longer see it. Only to find the tables turned or you now cast as the bad guy. Sure, someone could be going out of their way to provoke you. But it’s not just about picking your battles but also timing them too.
Watch what returns this week or else which puts everything in a different light. Missed opportunities, solutions and information appears on the 18th when Mercury in your 7th opposes Jupiter in your 1st. If a situation is on-going and demands you respond, this hands you the right tools – and insight. There’s a stop/start/stop/start feel to this. It may go back and forth with a final outcome next month, Aries. All the more reason to speak or act from that future perspective.
In a nutshell: You may be caught up with an urge to say what’s on your mind. And maybe you should, Aries. But first, ask yourself if this is the right moment? Share for sure – when the timing’s in your favour.

That secret love needs some TLC
Reach for the real dream
Change your beliefs
Is it time to breathe new life into those secret dreams, Taurus? Just how long can you ignore the whispers from your soul? A life of ignoring these adds up to a life half-lived. Free yourself from the prison of fear of failure, what others may think or simply ‘settling’ for what’s good enough but falls way short of what you really desire. Unacknowledged dreams result in frustration and bitterness. And if you find yourself experiencing either this week, it’s time to go into the real reason for this.
Fire up your courage and stand by your real values as ruler Venus in your 5th squares Mars in your 2nd. While the Sun also in your 5th opposes Neptune in your house of the future the same day (16th). Where or what have you ‘sold out’ over? Have you recklessly and generously as usual, given away far too much of yourself, your time, love, dedication and dreams? With little to show in return? It’s not a good week to go seek new love either. This is about looking at where love has fallen short for you – either in going for what you love to do or else in terms of relationship investment.
What has held you back from the belief that you can go for or have what you really want? Chances are as you explore this you’ll see it’s you. But the seed that spawned the fruit from the poisoned tree of lack of self-belief or worth, was actually planted by someone else. The 18th leads to an important discovery that will fuel you up to reclaim the lost path of true belief as retro Mercury opposes retro Jupiter in your 12th. This is the next step of release for you into a more authentic love journey. By next month – you’ll be well on your way towards claiming what you always wanted.
In a nutshell: Ignoring what you really want sets you up for that ‘glass half full’ experience. There’s a saying: Go directly to your dream. That’s the best advice I can give you this week, Taurus. Dreams are too valuable to sell out.

Do you need room to breathe?
Sparks fly on the home front
Take your time with decisions
Hey, sparky! Yes, that’s you, Gemini. Do I need to remind you that ruler Mercury is retrograde in your 5th? It’s opposition to Jupiter in your 11th on the 18th could herald a resurface or reappearance of someone. But take note, they are likely to then disappear from view again. It’s also not the time to go seeking that new lover. Unless you like complexities and complications that is.
Back to sparks flying which they may well do this week. Mars in your sign for an extra-long overstay due to an upcoming retro, sees you burning on a short fuse. Your patience may be tested this week thanks to a tense angle between Venus in your 4th and Mars. This involves someone you live with or are related to. In-laws, outlaws, family members, your spouse, your roomie, that lodger. Someone wants their way and you may want your space. Or for them to respect that. If it’s not forthcoming, this time you won’t let it slide.
Your best option is therefore to spend as little time cooped up at home as possible. Not always easy in today’s hybrid work-a-day world. You need breathing room and to decompress if antsy. And also discourage visitors – especially if you know they push your buttons even when you are at your most laid-back. Family get togethers may be a no-no. Avoid those relatives who just seem to be drama llamas and ignore the call from that sibling who loves to drunk-dial and trauma dump. That is if you want to keep your cool.
Meanwhile something else demands your serious consideration with you weighing up the pros and cons around property or even a career move. You know with all this retro action that things can still reverse or stall. So, try not to give in to pressure to decide. This week is all about impulse control and anger management. Your initial response to anyone or anything may be correct. But don’t allow irritation to turn that spark into a blazing argument, Gemini.
In a nutshell: Mars in your sign puts you in a fierce, fiery, fiesty mood. Just ensure that narks and niggles at home don’t get blown out of proportion. You best option – breathing space. Get out and about and don’t stay home this week, Gemini.

Follow insight to the truth
No more blurred lines
Slow down and wait for answers to catch up
What simply hasn’t been sitting right for you for a while may come to a boiling point this week as your suspicions are confirmed. Or someone crosses the line one time too many. You could be giving someone the unedited version of exactly what’s on your mind when Venus in your 3rd squares Mars in your 12th on the 16th.
If you feel someone is withholding something from you, your intuition combined with the desire for the facts, hands you the investigative skills of a detective and the tenacity of a pit bull when it comes to getting the answers you seek. You won’t let go of a subject until you arrive at the truth. Which has the effect of setting you free.
Do however keep those retro rules in mind if travelling this week and for anything to do with business or contracts. Something could be missed or delays, strikes, cancellations occur due to both planets which rule travel, transport and getting around – Mercury and Jupiter, are backwards. Mercury of course also rules commerce and contracts. Jupiter the mass media and legal matters. Agreements could stall or someone changes their mind.
Above all, be wary if you feel under pressure to make a decision when Mercury and Jupiter oppose on the 18th. Ask yourself why the rush? It may be you drawing the line and asking for an extension or more time. If it’s not sitting right this week – slow down, Cancer. And wait until you have all your answers.
In a nutshell: Your incredible intuition is your best guide during the kind of retro weather we’re experiencing this week. Then you have Neptune clouding an issue. Pierce through the confusion with insight and you’ll arrive at the truth, Cancer.

Don’t leave home without a Plan B
Have an asset audit
Ruler the Sun in your 2nd highlights your money, possessions, income, business, benefits and all-important self-worth. How is this tied to someone else, Leo? Maybe your boss or your spouse? That business partner? Your ex even? How confident and self-empowered are you when it comes to being direct about what it is you want?
The major retrograde weather is asking you for an accounting and to pay close attention to your income, money matters, borrowing, mortgages, loans and anything you consider an asset to you.
Freedom lies in getting to grips with the business of well – business and the bottom line. External money matters or negotiations may slow or even stop completely. Especially if you don’t have anything signed on the dotted line yet. What you can do even if others are dragging their heels, is to focus on income, money and what you have. Get to grips with your own finances while you wait and you’ll emerge from this cycle with a better relationship with your assets – now and especially as we head towards the year’s end. Get very clear in your mind about what you want to achieve and do read the fine print. Or state clearly what your expectations are.
Needless to say, with both planets which rule travel backwards (Mercury and Jupiter), don’t leave home without an alternative route in mind this week. The 18th is ripe for strikes, breakdowns, delays, reversals, cancellations, closures and confusion. It doesn’t matter if it’s short or long haul. Check everything before departure from the weather at your destination to what’s happening at the airport. Yes, you can’t factor in every possible aspect of retro mayhem. But you can be prepared.
In a nutshell: It’s about your relationship to your true worth (priceless!) as well as to your actual cash, income, possessions etc, Leo. Don’t let lack of self-worth muddy the waters when it comes to asking for what you know you deserve.

Don’t get stuck in the love lost & found
Check your resources
Self-imposed boundaries hand you back your power
Looking to lose yourself in love? Want to be swept away by a grand passion? Or is that fantasy or even romance novel providing you with the escape from reality you’re seeking? Be very wary of the swipe right who seems to offer that escape route, Virgo. Chances are – they don’t.
Love may be up in the air now until the end of October. And while the Sun remains in your sign along with Venus, it’s important not to get caught up in love’s illusions but to keep both feet on the ground when it comes to partnership matters. And also, don’t allow romance to distract you from what needs to be done or your career. Otherwise you’ll be left clearing up the mess well into next month due not just to the retro weather but the mutable storm front with Mars in your 10th and Neptune in your 7th. Both impacted this week by the Sun and Venus in your sign.
Above all, keep a close eye on your resources and don’t be afraid to put in some boundaries if needed. These include the self-imposed kind. Especially when it comes to your money. Do you need that or simply want it? Is that big ticket item filling the gap of an emotional need? With your retro ruler in your 2nd facing off retro Jupiter in your 8th, you should know better than to splurge on what you don’t need. But also where your own boundaries disappear when it comes to allowing others access to your precious assets of love, time etc. Don’t get lost in love this week. Find yourself again instead.
In a nutshell: Ensure when it comes to love you’re buying into the real deal – not the fantasy, Virgo. With retro weather in play you know you have to wait for the final outcome anyway. Stick to those rules this week.

Rewrite that past love
Don’t jump to conclusions
Reframe the old before beginning the new
What has you playing a guessing game this week, Libra? We are not only in retrograde weather with Mercury retro in your sign, and all the planets from Jupiter (in your 7th) outwards backwards. But we have in heavy mutable weather too with Mars in mutable Gemini and your 9th, ruler Venus and the Sun in your 12th (Virgo) and Neptune in Pisces and your 6th. So, a fast changing and unpredictable backdrop to the lead up to your fresh cycle.
This is going to mean revising, reclaiming or revisiting the past and watching and waiting before embarking on the new. In other words – you stay patient and you plan. And wait until the start of November to make your move. There are more facts to emerge for you. So please don’t rush in jumping to conclusions just yet. Also – due to both planets which rule travel and transport retrograde, you need to take extra time going anywhere. Be this just a short trip or that plan to canoe solo up the Orinoco. You may be heading out missing a key piece of information.
Is it time to let something go and move on? That’s the question posed on the 16th when ruler Venus squares off Mars in your 9th. A barrier to what’s been holding you back or the answer to something long standing could emerge from this. Again, this could be a key piece of information. But you may still not have the whole picture. It all gets up-close and personal when it comes to you and someone else on the 18th. Retro Mercury still in your 1st opposes retro Jupiter. Have you been here before, Libra? If not with this person with another? Nothing will be decided just yet. And forget starting something new in matters of the heart too. But the love that wants to return? That’s a whole new ball game you can play with your past now.
In a nutshell: The lead up to your birthday demands you probe into those past shadows, Libra. Due to the retro-weather this process may take longer than usual. Wait until the end of next month for a new direction to emerge.

Discover where you stand with a connection
What is or isn’t for sale for you?
Reality vs. expectation
A friendship or even a love connection may experience a disconnect or leave you wondering where you stand this week, Scorpio. Did a name just jump to mind? Ancient ruler Mars is in its ruling 8th house in your chart setting changes in your dynamic in motion as it squares Venus on the 16th. Same day as the Sun sharply defines the face of love as it opposes Neptune in your 5th. That’s the truth that underpins your connection. So please, don’t hang on to any remaining illusions if you have them.
Of course, that doesn’t mean the reality doesn’t measure up to your expectations. Just that you need to be aware of whether or not you and someone else are still on the same page – or not.
You may also be feeling extra passionate about something and feel the need to express this. This can be anything from your primary relationship to your spiritual beliefs. The topic or rather the value system that underpins all this is part of who you are. This is something you may not be willing to compromise over or you would feel you were selling your soul if you did. It could even be something you now regret not sticking to. Leaving you with the feeling you are somehow diminished as a result. The retrograde weather works in your favour if this has occurred. Allowing you to reclaim your power and your soul values especially around the 18th. Don’t be afraid to clearly state where you are coming from this week. The feeling of wholeness this leaves you – priceless.
Sep 16 2022 Venus in Virgo square Mars in Gemini (11th to 8th)
Sep 16 2022 Sun in Virgo opposition Neptune in Pisces (11th to 5th)
Sep 18 2022 Retrograde Mercury in Libra opposition retrograde Jupiter in Aries (12th to 6th)
In a nutshell: What fires you up this week is more than just an idea, Scorpio. It’s something which defines you in a very fundamental way. Leave others in no doubt about where you stand on this. It’s part of who you are.
Be open to alternative routes
Don’t get swept away
Cut through confusion
Allow for the big fat retro-factor this week, Sag. It’s not just Mercury retrograde in your 11th creating mayhem. But ruler Jupiter in your 5th. Love has a big question mark over it now. As could that all-time favourite Sag pastime – travel. Both planets rule short and long distance travel and your 5th rules holidays as well as love affairs. You have been warned. Especially around the 18th when both face off and nothing may go as planned.
Throw into the mix Mars in your partnership zone. That love affair may not unfold the way you thought it would either. Mixed signals, someone blowing hot and cold, or worse – trying to fence you in. Let’s throw into the retro pick n’ mix lovers who ghost you, tell you ‘It’s complicated’ or simply aren’t anything like their profile description. So, leave looking for that new lover on hold for now.
We’re also in mutable weather with the Sun and Venus in Virgo and your 10th and Neptune in your 4th. Clouds of confusion could arise from this as people simply renege or career matters go on hold or reverse. Yes, you are going to have to wait until October for the final outcome. But what is important is that you stick to your intentions even if others abandon theirs this week. If uncertainty has you in its grasp, retreat to what supports you or provides a solid foundation. And wait for clarity to emerge next month.
In a nutshell: The retro winds can change in an instant. And you could find yourself blown in the opposite direction to the one you wanted to take. Expect the usual delays and confusion. Don’t leave home without alternative plans.

Slip slidin’ away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you’re slip slidin’ away
Feel invisible or that you are slip slidin’ away to quote Paul Simon? Finding it hard to get your point across or that others simply aren’t listening? Or have you taken on ideas and opinions that belong to others and actually aren’t really yours? You may get a sudden, highlighted glimpse of something which touches on these issues this week as Venus squares Mars in your 6th and the Sun opposes Neptune in your 3rd.
It may be you have come closer to what you set out to attain than you thought. But then allowed the opinions of others to convince you otherwise. You can press the reset and re-record button if so now, Capricorn. Thanks to the retrograde weather which can be made to work in your favour.
As far as that destination goes however – if you are actually travelling, the strange and mutable retro energy can have you slip slidin’ due to cancellations, strikes, the weather, breakdowns or closures. Do double check before departure. Let’s talk career destinations too. Mercury retrograde in your status sector opposes retrograde Jupiter in your foundation creating 4th on the 18th. When it comes to moves of any kind – these too may be delayed and subject to reversals and change. To quote Paul Simon again: We believe we glidin’ down the highway when in fact, we’re slip slidin’ away. Plan for the slide and the ride will get smoother at the end of next month, Cappy.
In a nutshell: You think you’re close – but feel further way from what you wanted to convey or achieve. Is this just what others want you to think, Cappy? Look again because chances are, your way is the right way after all.

Surrender to change
Don’t be afraid to put in boundaries
Shore up that self-respect
Jupiter rules your 9th and Mercury rules your 3rd. This week sees retro Mercury in your 9th oppose retro Jupiter in your 9th which could deliver an extra large serving of retroactive mayhem. These are your houses of communication, short and long journeys, travel and transport, business, the internet and mass media. Also to be avoided now – large purchases unless something has broken down beyond repair. And if you can wait until Mercury is direct again next month, so much the better.
Change is in the air and asking you to surrender to it. Due to the retrogrades – not just Mercury and Jupiter but also all the planets from Jupiter outwards. This includes ruler Uranus in your 4th and Saturn in your 1st, you need to be patient when it comes to what the final outcome will be. There’s a need to let go and let a higher power step in as the more you try to control things, the less control on them you will have. This applies to financial dealings as well as your love life.
As hard as it may be, if that lover says they are leaving around the 16th, don’t put up a fight to keep them. This is not the final chapter. Financial matters may remain in flux as could legal agreements. That divorce proceeding, contract or business deal. That mortgage, move or loan. There’s a need not just for patience and stopping yourself from rushing in where angles fear to tread due to Mars in your 5th now, but also to put in some boundaries as you watch and wait. This may specially apply to children and teenagers if you have them or even work with them. And maybe that lover too. There’s no real love without respect, Aquarius. Letting go of control doesn’t mean your self-control or that self-respect has left the building!
In a nutshell: The more you try to control matters this week, the less in control of the outcome you’ll feel. Acceptance is a form of grace, And leaves you open and willing to explore alternatives.

Cut to the chase in conversations
Set your soul compass
Love is a waiting game
No waffling this week, Pisces. Get straight to the point and stick to it. Yes, ruler Neptune in your 1st stirs your empathy and compassion. And also makes you see things from every possible perspective. Which is all very well but it can leave you stuck and uncertain which way to go. Or doubt your first choice response. We have big mutable energy this week (so things are in flux), and also big fat retrograde weather (nothing is decided). During these times of revision and retrospection, the only thing we can be certain of is our soul compass. So, whatever you do – don’t second guess yourself.
Venus in its ruling 7th in your chart may this week leave you feeling something is missing. Perhaps you feel your significant other is distant. Or you’re uncharacteristically cranky with your nearest and dearest. Blame Mars in your 4th when it squares Venus on the 16th. Same day as the Sun in your 7th strikes Neptune and asks you to pay close attention to one particular dynamic or dramatic duo in your life. Your long term partner, the person you just fell head over heels for, that bestie, your boss or even that person in your face – expect a revelation – and stick to those insights. But don’t expect things to be settled – yet. You will have to wait for the final outcome.
The week also sees the two retro playas – Mercury and Jupiter, face off across your money zone. I should not need to sell you in on avoiding entering into new financial agreements if you possibly can. If someone shakes your sense of self-belief or self-worth this week, don’t stray from your values. And know this is more about them than it is about you. And if you need to convey this succinctly – do. Words show your true worth so communicate that, Pisces.
In a nutshell: Love may be in flux or you are forced to play a waiting game, Pisces. You may have to wait for the final chapter to be written between you and someone else. Once you’ve made your point – let go and wait.
