Vedic Astrology Report for September 2022


vedic astrology May 2015

By Debra Infante

In September, Mars transits the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus the entire month, and brings greater patience and the desire for creativity. Mercury, planet of communications, transits its exalted sign of Virgo, goes retrograde on September 9, and is combust the Sun later in the month. Venus joins Mercury in Virgo on September 24, and gives us opportunities to overcome perfectionism and find common ground with others.

Mars transits the fixed earth sign of Taurus all month, which makes us more determined, purposeful, and sometimes more stubborn. We are driven more by financial concerns and uncovering our true values with Mars in the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus. We tend to be a little more patient in attaining our goals. We express our creative talents now with passion and spontaneity.

Mercury, planet of communications, intellect, media, and commerce, transits its exalted sign of Virgo the entire month of September, until October 26, 2022. In general, Mercury traveling through its favorite sign brings greater focus, perception, analytical ability, and efficiency. Mercury in Virgo is very positive for educational or writing pursuits. But in its extreme, Mercury exalted can be quite sensitive and perfectionistic, and prone to over-thinking and excessive worry.

However, Mercury will go retrograde at 14 degrees Virgo on September 9 until October 2, 2022. When retrograde, Mercury’s energies tend to be more internal or inward. During the retrograde phase, it is an excellent time to deepen your spiritual practices, especially with meditation or pranayama (breathwork). Mercury retrograde can be a time to review and make any needed adjustments to your daily routine and schedule that supports your energy now. We may also be guided to understand the workings of our mind, as we are learning to be more discerning and neutral with our thoughts.

Retrograde Mercury in Virgo exactly opposes retrograde Jupiter in Pisces at 10 degrees on September 18, 2022. As Mercury is exalted and Jupiter in its own sign, both being powerfully placed and both retrograde, this combination can be quite insightful. Any new trainings, seminars, or classes of a spiritual nature are highlighted.

The powerful Sun moves into the earth sign of Virgo from September 16 to October 17, 2022. Now Mercury is with the Sun in Virgo and travels especially close to the Sun from September 20 to 25, which is called combustion. The exact conjunction occurs at 6 degrees Virgo on September 22. Combustion of a retrograde Mercury can indicate issues with communications, computers, and travel plans.

Venus, planet of love, relationships, healing, and finance, transits its debilitated sign of Virgo on September 24 until October 18, 2022. Because Venus will join exalted Mercury in Virgo, Venus will have some reversal of its debility as it is with an exalted planet. In general, these two benefic and friendly planets together in Virgo are very creative and can amplify artistic expressions.  But as Venus is in its weaker sign and Mercury is retrograde and combust, watch for a tendency to seek approval rather than honestly speaking one’s mind.

On the positive side, Venus in the sensitive earth sign of Virgo increases our focus on natural and alternative healing modalities, growing our own food, and adopting a healthy diet. We want to protect nature and focus on environmental activism. Venus transiting Virgo is very service-oriented and dedicated to helping others.

In relationships, Venus in the Mercury-ruled sign of Virgo can give a tendency to mentally over-analyze rather than feel true emotions. Venus in Virgo gives us an opportunity to learn to be more vulnerable and less critical in relating to others. Especially from September 29 to October 17, 2022, Venus is traveling extra close to the Sun, and is combust, so this is a time to be more vigilant in all your relationships, and let go of impossible expectations with others. Connect honestly, heart to heart.  This is a time to choose love and compassion over doubt and fear.
