The astrology forecast for the week of September 26, 2022 through October 2, 2022 features six major aspects (Venus trine Pluto, Mercury Rx conjunct Venus, Sun oppose Jupiter, Mercury Rx trine Pluto, Mars trine Saturn, Venus oppose Jupiter), Venus moves out of Virgo and into Libra, and Mercury turns direct in Virgo.
This week is busier than the New York subway at rush hour. So, buckle your seat belt!
This week Venus moves out of the sign of her fall (Virgo) and into the sign she rules (Libra). In traditional astrology, Venus is considered the lesser benefic, and moving into her own sign gives her power to maneuver in ways that are helpful to our growth. Now, this doesn’t mean you can sit on your couch and eat a package of Godiva chocolate (although Venus would love to do that), a planet in its own dignity still requires work.
In many astrological cookbooks, Venus in Libra relates to finding the perfect and ideal mate. Often our ideals of relationships look good on paper (after all, who doesn’t want a tall dark handsome stranger?), but our ideals often don’t work well in real life. Furthermore, you need to acknowledge that whoever you get involved with has romantic ideals of their own, which can bring forth complications, especially if one person gets their needs met more than another.
Practically speaking, Venus in Libra helps us look at whether our relationships are balanced. Sometimes they are not, and you can use this placement to bring them back to center. It’s also a time to seek compromises when necessary for the overall health of the relationship. Additionally, with Venus in Libra, you can seek new relationships (wait until Mercury goes direct before committing to one). If you’ve been holding back and waiting for the right to connect with someone, take advantage of this energy, because the time is now.
Monday, September 26, 2022
Monday is a busy day with three major aspects – Venus trine Pluto, Mercury conjunct Venus, and the Sun oppose Jupiter. Now, none of these aspects are alarming or should make the hair raise on the back of your head. Instead, it’s a great day for social activities, exploring your feelings, and not taking things too seriously. Since your self-confidence will be high, you may try to take on more than you can handle. Try to avoid doing that.

Mercury Rx trines Pluto in Capricorn. Used proactively, this aspect is incredible for self-discovery and understanding yourself and your motives. You will be concerned with digging deep and finding solutions to the concerns you have in your life. Introspection and reflection are the name of the game as you go throughout your day.
Wednesday, September 28, 2022
If you need to get things done, then today is the day to do it with Mars trine Saturn. Saturn provides Mars with the patience and determination to push forward, especially with projects that need tenacity and discipline. Keep your mind on playing the long game, not getting instant gratification or reward. Those will come with time.
Thursday, September 29, 2022
Besides Venus moving out of Virgo and into Libra, the Moon moves through emotionally intense Scorpio. You may notice your emotions are super charged, and others will easily trigger you. Try to learn from your emotional experiences, so that you can transform them, rather than allow them to control you.

The Moon moves out of the darkness and into the light as she moves into Sagittarius shortly after midnight, and forms beautiful aspects to Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun. Your overall mood should be positive and optimistic. This evening is excellent for socializing and enjoying yourself. Engage in a little down time, because you deserve it!
Saturday, October 1, 2022
Venus opposes Jupiter in Aries. Ordinarily, oppositions are aspects of tension. However, since Venus and Jupiter are benefics, the tension that comes from these two planets is taking things to extremes and overindulgence. Since Venus rules pleasure and Jupiter expands any planet he interacts with, it’s an excellent day to do activities you enjoy and spend the day doing things that bring you joy – just don’t get crazy.
Sunday, October 2, 2022
At long last, Mercury ends his retrograde cycle and turns direct in Virgo. Communication will slowly improve, and you can begin to move forward with the plans you delayed during the retrograde. Mercury will retrograde next in the sign of Capricorn on December 29th.
See you next week!
