Well, August certainly sped by in a blur, at least it seemed like that to me! I suspect that September will feel similar because with Mars in Gemini we get a double dose of speed and information.
Mars begins the month at 7 degrees of Gemini, almost at the 8th degree position it will retrograde back to by January 12, 2023.
So the ground you cover between September 4th and October 30th will have to be reviewed, revised or re-done over the course of the next 7 months through mid-March of 2023.
Add in the coming Mercury retrograde beginning on Sept 10th at almost 9 degrees of Libra and you get additional delays and/or information gaps. Both are in air signs so more information is coming in with this planetary pairing.
You can see Mars in the pre-dawn sky positioned between the fixed star Aldebaran and the lovely Pleiades constellation. Jupiter in Aries is also blazing overhead at that time as well.
Venus finishes her reign through Leo and enters Virgo on September 5th and spends the month in that sign before going into Libra on September 30th. Venus can be nitpicky and somewhat unsatisfied in Virgo but the energy can be used to improve your health and hygiene habits. It’s also a great time to go through closets and give away things you no longer want or need. Venus in Virgo doesn’t like to feel shabby or ungroomed.
