Here’s your monthly horoscope for September 2022. This month brings challenges with Mercury retrograding and Pluto’s return, but also opportunities. Longtime Almanac astrologer Celeste Longacre provides a monthly outlook plus horoscope highlights for all 12 zodiac signs.
This September ushers in another period of retrograde Mercury from late on the 9th through the 2nd of October. Once again, it is time to redo, rethink and reorganize whatever has gone on before. While encompassing the Harvest Full Moon which occurs at 5:59 AM (EDT) on the 10th, this is a great time to refill the pantry, stock the freezer and, in the northern climes, make sure that you have your boots, hats and mittens ready for the upcoming winter. See the winter forecast.
We are also still in the very major upheaval of the USA’s Pluto return. As the God of death and rebirth, Pluto brings deep changes and portends that things are never going to be quite the same. This is not just a negative. Many aspects of our culture are wasteful and redundant and this is giving us a chance to rethink our priorities. Security begins at home and we have gotten too far away from a dependence on our local farms and businesses.
The Moon and Saturn
Saturn in the sky has also been challenging the USA’s Moon. The Moon represents the women in a society and Saturn always brings with it tests. This could be partly responsible with the recent Roe v. Wade decision. Before the end of October, Saturn will turn around from its retrograding position and begin to leave this arena behind. It will be interesting to see what the elections bring.
The new Moon is at 5:55 PM on the 25th.
Of course, September also ushers in autumn. Now is the time to stock the pantry and preserve your harvest . Potatoes keep well in any cool, dark spot and garlic cloves can live in a basket on the counter. See how to prepare potatoes for a root cellar. Sweet peppers can be cut into small pieces, frozen on a cookie sheet and stored in a glass container in the freezer. Tomatoes can be peeled, diced and canned. Or dry your tomatoes, peppers, and herbs to keep them longer. inter squashes are happy to sit on a shelf for months (put them some place you can keep an eye on them, though). A little extra time and thought now can save you a great deal of money later. See how to build a root cellar.
