Today's Horoscope This week This month

Virgo horoscope for September 2022

Whether you are an August or a September born Virgo, with the Sun in your sign until 23rd September this is your birthday month and the start of a new solar year. If you are going to judge the year ahead by how things start then there is every reason to move forward with confidence, both because of the personal influences and the overall cosmic influences at this time, which really do give a good indication of what you can expect from the coming year. By the time the Sun returned to Virgo last month Mercury had already been here for three months and as both your ruling planet and an intellectually savvy and articulate influence, this gave you a head start and a chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open.

While Mercury left just a few days into your birthday month, a retrograde turn on 10th September will see him retrograde back in for a second visit less than 12 hours after your birthday month ends on 23rd September. This allows you to keep your mind and your options open until then. Held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year, Venus is late to return to Virgo this year but will finally return to give your heart a voice on 5th September. Venus is here until 29th September, so for the rest of your birthday month but also when Mercury retrogrades back in on 23rd September, something that will finally put heart and mind on the same page.

Until then Mercury continues to pave the way and while the Sun won't return to your income sector until 23rd September, Mercury has been here for four weeks by then, giving you a smart head for money from the start. It is Venus' return on 29th September that will begin what can be the most lucrative weeks of any year and while this is typical for this time of year, professionally this is not normally the case. September is the first of what could be the most lucrative months of 2022 but it also happens to be the first full month of Mars' longest visit to your career sector in eight decades as well as Saturn's last full month in retrograde motion in your work sector for another three decades. This is the start of some empowered months across the income, work and career fronts.

Love & Romance

While it is business as usual on the romantic and relationship front this month, with the planets on both fronts not making any changes, the influences they are under are. As has been the case for months now, with Pluto in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and both Neptune and the asteroid Juno in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, on both the romantic and relationship fronts the focus is on the past. However, both will be impacted in different ways by the planetary activity in Virgo this month. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of September in Virgo, with your birthday month and your new solar year underway. Yet while you are looking to the future, neither the Sun nor the other planets can pass through Virgo without interacting with the planets on the romantic and relationship fronts.

This is something that will see the Sun clash with Juno and Neptune before leaving on 23rd September. Since Neptune's return in 2012, this has been an annual event and key to getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This year, you have the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships on board, giving you a chance to turn this into a sense of resolve and commitment. However, since Pluto's return in 2008, this has seen the Sun move into a friendly aspect as it moves through, giving the spirit of romance a boost and as is the case with the planets in your relationship sector, at a time when the doors are open to the past and second chances.

In both cases, this is something that will happen during the Sun's final days but also for Mercury, when the planet of communication retrogrades back into Virgo less than 12 hours after the Sun leaves on 23rd September. This is Pluto's last full month in retrograde motion and with Uranus in his first in retrograde motion in an adventurous part of your chart, Mercury's return will bring the spirit of romance, adventure and nostalgia together. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your romantic sector from 5th September to 7th September and to your relationship sector from 9th September to 11th September and the Full Moon this will create on 10th September will be an important chance to check in.

Business & Career

This should not be a particularly busy or active point of your professional year, with Saturn still in retrograde motion in your work sector all the Sun having left your career sector over two months ago. Even on the income front, with the Sun not returning to your income sector until 23rd September there is nothing that would lead you to assume that the month would get off to the extraordinary start that it does across the income, work and career fronts or that this is just a taste of things to come. Everything changed on 20th August, two months since the Sun left your career sector and just over a month after Venus supposedly ended all planetary activity on the career front for the year.

The game changer was Mars, who returned to your career sector for the first time in two years to begin what is normally a six week visit aimed at fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and to fire things up on the career front. Because of what has already been invested, Mars can build on recent months, taking your professional year to new heights. Normally here for six weeks, this should keep Mars here until at least the final hours of the month or the early hours of next month, with the warrior princess of the cosmos impacting the whole month. Instead, as the end of the month approaches Mars will be slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn that will keep him here until March 2023.

What is even more game changing about this is that with Saturn also wrapping up his three year visit in March, they will work in partnership during the next seven months, together giving you the power to move mountains if you have to. With Saturn in his last full month in retrograde motion in your work sector for another three decades, as Mars pushes things forward on the career front he will also support the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. The third aspect in this game changing month was Mercury's early return to your income sector last month, just six days after Mars' return to your career sector. Like Mars, Mercury will be reluctant to leave, with a retrograde turn keeping him here until 23rd September, only to return for a complete do over. By then the Sun will be here with Venus, the planet of money returning to capitalise on this on 29th September.


While the Sun's return to your income sector on 23rd September is one thing that you can set your watch to, with the solar spotlight always shifting onto your income situation, matters and options at the same time each year, this is something that you already have a head start on. It was late last month that Mercury became the first planet to reach your income sector, beginning the first planetary activity on the income front for the year with his trademark smart head for money and a chance to get your head around your options. Normally here for 14 to 15 days and having returned four weeks ahead of the Sun and already here for six days by the time you move into the new month, Mercury should be long gone by the time the solar spotlight shifts onto your income situation, matters and options.

Instead, a retrograde turn on 10th September will keep Mercury here just long enough to ensure there is no gap or drop off, with this smart and intellectually savvy planet leaving less than 12 hours after the Sun's return on 23rd September. This will ensure there is continuity while after 13 days in retrograde motion will leave you with a smart head for money, 20/20 hindsight but with a chance to look to the future. Mercury will be gone by the time the Moon not only moves through from 26th September to 28th September but to create a New Moon here just hours after returning. This will also ensure your nose for money is sharp when Venus, the planet of money returns on 29th September to begin what can be the most lucrative weeks of any year.

With Mercury returning next month, Mars in his first full month in your career sector and with support from Saturn in your work sector, this is not only a game changing month on the income front but the start of some game changing months across the income, work and career fronts. At the same that things are only just now opening up on the income side of the financial fence, the planets on the other side of the fence are likely to welcome the competition and especially Jupiter, with the planet of luck and expansion now in his last full month in your financial sector. There will be clashes and there might be some financial tension from time to time, but the conditions are so good on both sides of the financial fence that it won't take much to turn this into motivation.


Since his return to your health sector in 2020 Saturn has spent the middle months of each year in retrograde motion but the difference this time is that this is the last full month of his last retrograde phase here for another three decades. Saturn is all about lessons, taking responsibility and in retrograde motion experiencing the consequences of decisions or actions made in the past. You can't change the past, but you can use this to make better decisions moving forward. What is giving you the confidence to really take your power back is the support that Saturn is getting from Mars, especially when it comes to the confidence to set new goals and resolutions. The Moon's return to your work sector from 7th September will be a chance to check in with this and with what your body is telling you.
