The astrology forecast for the week of September 12, 2022 through September 18, 2022 features four major aspects – Venus square Mars, the Sun oppose Neptune, Mercury opposes Jupiter, and the Sun trine Pluto. All these aspects occur during the weekend.
Let’s just dive right in.
The aspect of the week is the Sun opposing Neptune in Pisces. This is an incredibly difficult aspect that often feels icky and self-defeating. In astrology, the Sun reflects our ego, our sense of identity, and our inner destiny.
Now, to work with the Sun oppose Neptune productively requires a lot of humility, introspection, and self-honesty. We need to admit our mistakes, and through our confessions we find redemption. The problem is that our first reaction to inner issues is to project the problem outside ourselves, even to the point where we identify with victim mindsets.
I recently seen a meme on Facebook that said, “I don’t know who needs to hear this, but whatever you are going through, it’s your fault.” I’m sure it amused many people, or they found it offensive, but unfortunately it is mostly true. We rarely like to face our personal responsibilities, and how our choices and decisions ultimately create our experiences. Furthermore, no matter our experiences, they mold who we are as individuals. Some people stay stuck in their experiences and pain, and have difficulties moving beyond them. Yet, it is by getting in touch with our experiences, our hurts, our pain, and by pressing forward, we find inner meaning and experience growth.
On a more practical level, the Sun oppose Neptune is a time of low energy, confusion, and uncertainty. You may experience difficulties in your relationships with others, and you will want to avoid doing anything against your will, because that will ultimately lead to resentment. Also, avoid shady people, because they will take advantage of you if they can.

We start the week off with the Moon moving through energetic Aries, and she forms a productive sextile to Saturn in Aquarius. It’s an excellent day to go after what you want, and Saturn’s stabilizing effect will help you on your mission. Working on projects that require determination and tenacity is also recommended.
Tuesday, September 13, 2022
After the energetic burst of the last few days (while the Moon was in Aries), the cosmos slows down as the Moon moves into Taurus. Sometimes we need to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, and today is definitely the day to do it. Your mood should be peaceful and calm, and make sure you enjoy something decadent.
Wednesday, September 14, 2022
The Moon continues to move through Taurus. During the early morning hours, the Moon will conjoin disruptive Uranus. You may feel bored with your usual routine, which can make you feel impulsive or anxious. Try to find new things that will inspire or excite you. This evening, the Moon will square Saturn, which is a killjoy. Avoid falling into negative mindsets and self-criticism.
Thursday, September 15, 2022
The Moon spends most of the day void of course in Taurus. Avoid making firm agreements or starting anything new until the Moon moves into Gemini later this afternoon. This evening is a great time to socialize and connect with your inner circle.
Friday, September 16, 2022
In addition to the Sun opposing Neptune that I discussed in the Cosmic Overview, Venus will square Mars in Gemini. Venus square Mars is a difficult aspect that often leads to disagreements, arguments, and power struggles. In most cases, there are already underlying problems in the relationship waiting for the right time to surface. Unfortunately, that time is now. Attempt to be amicable in your discussions, and try to see the other person’s view. A clash of egos could lead to long-term damage.
Saturday, September 17, 2022
The difficult energies from yesterday continue as the Moon moves through Gemini and squares Neptune. The Moon square Neptune can make you feel overwhelmed by your environment, so try to stay as grounded as possible. It’s not the best day to make decisions, because your thoughts and feelings may be distorted.
Sunday, September 18, 2022
We close the week with two planetary aspects – Mercury opposes Jupiter and the Sun trine Pluto. This is a welcomed relief from the energies earlier this weekend, and your mood should be more positive and optimistic. This evening, the Sun will trine Pluto, and this should help you understand your life deeper, and you can then stand in your personal power.
See you next week!
