Your Way is Okay
By Misty Kuceris ©2022
During the month of September, you feel a lot of tension as you want to move on with your life. Yet you don’t want others to take advantage of your so you want to stand up for your rights. The reality is that this month is one where you discover whatever you want…your way is okay.
As the month of September starts Venus forms a quincunx to Pluto retrograde on September 2nd followed by Mercury forming the first of three oppositions to Jupiter retrograde in this triad sequence.
Understanding what’s important to you defines the quincunx that Venus forms with Pluto retrograde. With Venus in Leo you want to go after what’s important in your life and receive recognition for your achievements. Yet, often when Pluto is involved, especially in retrograde motion, there’s a lot going on under the surface which may stifle just how much recognition you get. Or, with this quincunx energy, you may find that other people are trying to take credit for your work. Because a quincunx represents the need to make adjustments in your life, it’s time to re-evaluate how you let other people know what you’re doing. This may be the only way to get the credit you deserve.
As Mercury forms the opposition to Jupiter retrograde, you need to choose your words very carefully. It is so tempting to just rush out there and express your thoughts without censorship. And because this is the first time this opposition occurs in this triad sequence, what you say today may come back to haunt you on September 18th when this opposition, with both Mercury and Jupiter in retrograde motion and on October 12th when Mercury goes direct and Jupiter remains retrograde. On the other hand, if you can temper your communication, you’ll find that holding back now actually benefits any projects you are contemplating over the next two months. In addition, take the time to review any legal documents between now and October 12th to make certain they are filed correctly as both the sign of Libra, which Mercury is in, and the planet Jupiter rule legal matters.
Ceres in Leo represents your environment and the desire to have a happy and safe space. Meanwhile, Uranus retrograde indicates that something unexpected and related to past events could crop up in your life. So, when Ceres forms a square to Uranus Retrograde on September 3rd, you may feel this under lying sense of tension as if something’s about to happen but you don’t know what. Don’t be at all surprised if you run into someone from your past. Or, you find that you need to take care of something that you thought you had completed.
The square between Ceres and Uranus retrograde also indicates that while you would like to stay home, you’re restless. You want to try some new experiences. Yet, at the same time you don’t want to put yourself into harm’s way. This very tension can actually bring out the creative interior decorator within you. You come up with new ideas on how to make your space more exciting. You disrupt your space, not because of tension, but because you want to introduce something new that shows another side of your personality.
When Venus enters the sign of Virgo on September 5th. you understand the importance of taking care of each detail. You realize that you need to stay true to your daily routine. And you also recognize that by establishing a routine, you can actually make your life more efficient because what you do becomes a routine or habit.
Still, you also realize as Ceres forms an opposition to Saturn retrograde on September 6th, that you don’t want to live such a structured life that you feel as if you’re not having any fun. You need to find that balance between creating a safe and sacred space around you and letting people into your life who understand your needs. As a matter of fact, if people because too critical of your behavior, you may decide that it’s just time to let go of that relationship and move on. Or, if it’s a work situation where you are doing all the mundane tasks, you may realize that it’s time to learn how to delegate.
Before Mercury goes retrograde on September 9, 2022, Venus forms a quincunx to Jupiter retrograde. With Venus forming a quincunx to Jupiter retrograde you’re willing to take risks, try new things. At the same time, you realize that before you take any risks you need to assess the situation. You want to determine if the risks are worth it. In this way, this quincunx is a blessing in disguise. You are willing to take your time and make any adjustments which lead to increased success and lessen your risk factors.
When Mercury in Libra turns retrograde, there are several emotions occurring. You want to communicate with others in a manner they understand. You also want to be fair in your interactions with others. You don’t want to take advantage of them. You don’t want them to take advantage of you. Sometimes, with Mercury retrograde in Libra, this desire to be fair beca more difficult because communications can get distorted and other people may take offense. If that does occur, don’t push the matter right now. Try and explain it one more time. If that still doesn’t work, wait until Mercury re-enters the sign of Virgo in retrograde motion on September 23rd. And, if it still doesn’t work, wait until Mercury in Virgo goes direct on October 2nd.
Another area where you may need to move very cautiously involves legal matters. Before you take on any contracts or address any legal documents, review them cautiously. It’s too easy to miss something of importance. Once again, if you miss some important detail now, you’ll have time to make those corrections or changes when Mercury retrograde in the sign of Virgo turns direct on October 2nd.
When it comes time for the full Moon on September 10th, you may want to look at some changes in your life that involve volunteer activities. That’s because with the Sun is in Virgo and the Moon is in Pisces you understand how important it is to take care of your needs. In addition to reviewing those volunteer activities, this may also be a good time to review your health practices to see if your life is moving in the right direction.
The good news is that with the Sun forming a trine to Uranus retrograde and the Moon forming a sextile to Uranus retrograde, you’ll receive some unexpected information that helps you realize your life is moving in the right direction.
What’s also fun about the Sun and Moon making positive aspects to Uranus retrograde at the time of the full Moon is you usually run into people you haven’t seen for a while. Or, in this case, with the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces, you may find some documents that went missing.
With Ceres in Leo forming the quincunx to Neptune retrograde on September 15th, you need to be certain that other people aren’t deceiving you or taking advantage of your good nature. Because Leo represents the desire to be generous, you want to be there to help others. But, they may take advantage of your good nature. If that occurs, you’ll feel victimized. You might even lash out which makes it worse. If something doesn’t feel right about an individual, listen to that feeling. Somehow you’re picking up signals that you’re being taken advantage of.
Both Venus and Mars form aspects to Chiron retrograde on September 17th. Venus forms a quincunx in the early morning hours of EDT and Mars forms a sextile in the later hours EDT.
This is a day where I think of the fishing term “catch and release.” With Venus forming the quincunx to Chiron retrograde you can reflect on your life to determine what’s important and what to let go. Basically, you take a look at those areas of your life which don’t bring you much joy, but rather pain. You realize that pain is standing in your way and not helping you with your personal growth.
As Mars forms the sextile to Chiron retrograde, you realize that you can release any negativity in your life. Negativity has no purpose other than to repress you. And, with Mars in Gemini you are no longer willing to be repressed. You are ready to express your true nature. You want other people to know who you are.
Mercury forms its second opposition to Jupiter retrograde on September 18th, in this triad sequence. This time, however, Mercury is retrograde. When this opposition first occurred on September 2nd, Mercury was direct and Jupiter was retrograde. At that time you may have felt that you needed to think things over before you took any action. You felt that it was not a good time to take risks. You may have also decided that it was time to review some old contracts to determine their importance or validity.
Now that Mercury is retrograde you find yourself realizing that it’s a good thing you’re not taking any risks right now. While you may not see it clearly, you feel that other people aren’t necessarily thinking about your best interest. You also realize that this is not the time to sign any new contracts because there are just too many unknown factors.
When this aspect occurs for the final time on October 12th, you’ll have a better perspective on what actions to take and whether to make any changes with contracts.
There will be a lot of power struggles on September 20th as Venus forms a trine to Uranus retrograde and a quincunx to Saturn retrograde later in the day while Ceres forms a quincunx to Pluto retrograde between the two aspects that Venus makes.
With Venus in Virgo, you want to pay attention to details. Yet, as Venus forms that trine to Uranus retrograde, you realize that new information is cropping up in your life. What you were expecting to happen today, isn’t going to take place. Either friends are contacting you because they need to change plans. Or, you decide that you would rather do something new and unusual and find you’re the one who is changing plans.
As Ceres forms the quincunx to Pluto retrograde you wonder if you need to make even more changes to your plans. People may be trying to direct you into situations that you’re not interested in. Or, they may be trying to undermine your actions. The truth is, you’re not interested in what they want. You want to experience life your way.
This realization that you want to do things your way intensifies as Venus forms the quincunx to Saturn retrograde. You don’t want to be govern by rules that other people set. You don’t want them to dictate what you should be doing. Life still isn’t going as expected today, but you decide that’s all right. As long as you determine how you want to spend you time, you’ll be all right.
On September 22nd, the Sun enters the sign of Libra and the Fall Equinox occurs in the Northern Hemisphere. This marks the half-way point of the astrological year. When this equinox occurs, Mercury retrograde in the sign of Libra is forming a conjunction to the Sun. This indicates that it’s important to understand your relationships and make certain that you’re communicating your needs to other people. You also want to spend more time with people you care for rather than just doing things on your own. Still, be careful when you communicate with others. Try as you might to be clear in your communications, sometimes it’s not that easy being clear when Mercury is retrograde.
Meanwhile, the Moon forms a conjunction to Ceres and a quincunx to Pluto retrograde. Emotionally you want to feel that you can control everything in your life. Yet, at the same time, there are forces working under the surface which prevent you from having as much control as you desire. It’s important to pay attention to what I like to call underground forces. Underground forces can be people working behind your back, trying to influence you without your realization. Or, underground forces can be past fears which just have a way of surfacing when you least expect them. And, when they surface, you find that it’s difficult to move forward. But Ceres knows how to deal with loss in life. So, with the Moon forming that conjunction to Ceres and that quincunx to Pluto retrograde, you realize that you can’t control everything in life, especially other people, but you can control your reactions to situations and other people.
Finally, Venus in Virgo forms an opposition to Neptune retrograde. This indicates that not all is as it appears when it comes to either relationship or financial matters. You’ll need to pay attention to how you spend or invest your money. While you may want to follow your heart in relationships, you also need to realize that some people in the world are looking for individuals who will give to them so they can take from you.
During the time of this equinox, you are going through many changes in your relationships with others. In some cases you may find that communications are not as clear as you’d like. In other situations you’ll realize that while you can’t control everything in your life, you can control how you react to everything in your life. Finally, it’s time to be more realistic. Fantasy can be fun, but it can also interfere with making the best choices in your life.
With Mercury retrograde re-entering the sign of Virgo on September 23rd, you find that you’re able to look at life and see ways to simplify your life. You’re ready to shred and toss out files that no longer have meaning in your life. You’re willing to change your routine so there are fewer rituals you need to perform. And, you realize that all those past commitments you made no longer need to be maintained. Basically, you’re ready to re-prioritize your life.
Watch out for others on September 24th when Venus forms the opposition to Neptune retrograde. There’s too much deceit out there. People may be lying outright to you. They may be telling you what you want to hear. Or worse, they are gaslighting you: Telling you that what you believe isn’t valid thereby invaliding you personally.
About the only good thing to say about Venus forming the opposition to Neptune retrograde is that if you spend time in your own sacred space, you’ll be able to draw on a greater understanding of your spiritual nature. And, if you are a creative person, you’ll feel as if you’ve found your muse and are able to create way more than you have in the past. Even if you’re not a creative person, you could come up with some creative approaches that seem a bit out of whack (a bit weird) that provide you with some good solutions to some very serious problems.
With the new Moon occurring on September 25th you want to put your energies into improving your relationships. This is because the Sun and Moon are in the sign of Libra forming an opposition to Jupiter retrograde. Now you feel that it’s time to move on with life. You’ve spent too much time in hiding. Or, you haven’t had the opportunity to spend as much time with friends as you’d like. Perhaps because Mercury is also retrograde in this chart you want to reach back into the past and re-connect with people you haven’t seen in a while. The new Moon is always about moving forward with your life. Sometimes though, you need to take a few steps back and review the past so you can move forward into future you envision.
One day before Mercury retrograde forms its second trine to Pluto retrograde, Venus forms a trine to Pluto retrograde on September 26th. As important as relationships are in your life, you realize that you that those relationships won’t thrive if you don’t take care of your needs. This can be true both professionally and personally. This is a day where you understand how important it is to accept your personal power. Not only is this a day of understanding the importance of your personal power, it’s also a day where your charisma is elevated and other people are willing to listen to what you have to say.
When Mercury retrograde forms the trine to Pluto retrograde on September 27th, you continue to embrace your personal power. The first time Mercury formed the trine to Pluto retrograde was on August 22nd when Mercury was direct. While you understood how important your personal power was at that time, you may not have been able to convey your thoughts and express your feelings. But, you wanted people to appreciate what you could contribute to society.
Now with Mercury retrograde it still may not be easy to express your feelings, but you do realize just how much you contribute to society, whether its professionally or personally. And you realize how important your contributions are. As a matter of fact, this is a great day to write a resume if you’re job hunting because you’ll be able to list your accomplishments in a succinct manner. And when this aspect occurs for the third time on October 6th with Mercury direct, that will be a great day to send out that resume.
You have a lot of controlled energy on September 28th as Mars forms the trine to Saturn retrograde. The reason that I write controlled energy is because you don’t want to rush into situations. Rather, you proceed with such great alertness that you are able to assess your environment as you move forward. In this way, you know the best course of action, especially since both Mars and Saturn retrograde are in air sign.
Both Venus and Ceres change signs on September 29th approximately one hour apart. Venus enters the sign of Libra, the sign it rules. With Venus in Libra you realize just how important relationships are to you. While you may feel some passion, Venus in the sign of Libra is different than Venus in the sign of Taurus, the other sign it rules. Venus in the sign of Libra places fairness above passion. You want to make certain that everyone is treated equitably. You don’t like to see other people taken advantage of. If you see something that occurs which is unfair, you may just do whatever it takes to correct that situation. And, what that means is that you will fight if you need to.
Ceres in Virgo is another example of making certain that people are doing what is right and not taking advantage of others. However, in the sign of Virgo, the energy is different. When Ceres is in the sign of Virgo, you can see what the potential end result will be in a situation. You’re able to assess and come up with constructive suggestions. You don’t tolerate stupidity very well. And, you may even let that other person know that your tolerance level is very low.
