The transformational beat continues for you Capricorn, and will do so, with a few twists, for the remainder of this climactic 2022 year. This month, the recent Virgo New Moon that arrived just before September began, took place in your sector of higher mind, signaling a thoughtful thirty-day period that might also involve travel or educational opportunities. Your career is another major focus now, with plentiful choices unfolding in ways that will challenge your developing discernment and assessment of priorities. When Mercury retrogrades on the 9th it is in Libra, corresponding to your sector of vocation and professional life. The last three weeks of the month are therefore an introspective period for you, and you may wind up questioning nearly every aspect of who you are and what you are up to. This is hopefully enabling you to better pursue your changing sense of identity and what you have it in you to accomplish. This is in the final analysis all about your deepest and most sincere principles, with what is becoming newly revealed and yet has been with you always, where you have always been coming from.

The New Moon in Virgo that took place on the 27th of August carried new energy for your higher mind sector of learning and exploring, for the thirty days of its lunation cycle, lasting almost the entire month of September. You could be expanding on what you already know or be more inclined to get excited by things that are foreign to you. An insatiable curiosity may be taking you out of your comfort zone but you might be in for the ride and willing to step out of the beaten path in search of new perspectives. The New Moon in Virgo formed a square to Mars in Gemini highlighting your sector if day-to-day activities and health regimens. This adds an anxious and busy energy to this lunation so that you might find it hard to focus on just one thing. Your multitasking abilities could be reaching new heights in September, just don’t expect everyone to be able to keep up with you. There will be surprises as you meditate on your values and resources, and your deep-seated sense of right action and right relationship might be even more on your mind.
Venus enters Virgo on the 4th and this will continue to emphasize emerging worldview as well as education and travel. You could gain much from talking with people who come from different backgrounds. In some ways, September brings a new chapter and you might feel your perspective changing when it comes to what you want to do in the world.
Mercury stations retrograde in Libra on the 9th and this may relate to career, signaling a period of adjustment over the next three weeks, and on into October. You might want to give yourself some time to integrate the new elements that are coming into your life at this time.
The Full Moon in Pisces on the 10th can highlight a culmination process related to your skills and your know-how. Your desire for new challenges also means taking stock of what you already know before launching yourself forward into new adventures. Learning, teaching and exchanging ideas could be a big theme at this time as a pioneering influence urges you out of your comfort zone once again.
Mid-month might bring some polarizing tension between your goals and everything that needs to be accomplished to get there. You may feel somewhat overwhelmed by the details of a project and your to-do list could be getting impossibly full. On the 15th through the 18th, the Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces highlighting a tension between your inspired and creative side versus the ways in which you structure and filter your thinking for others. You may feel equally divided between the part of you that wants to flow and the part of you that wants to micromanage everything.
The Sun’s ingress into the sign of Libra on the 22nd is a turning point in the month which signals the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and this year the Sun almost immediately meets Mercury moving retrograde. On the 22nd through 23rd, Mercury comes into a conjunction with the Sun in Libra before re-entering Virgo a few hours later on the 23rd. Take notes of what transpires around this time as you may gain greater clarity related to your role in the world and where things are heading.
The New Moon in Libra on the 25th brings a beautiful reset in the career sector of your chart and fresh momentum for growth. You might not know exactly where things are heading but you could feel an important shift taking place within you related to your overall direction. A new awareness related to your commitments and responsibilities might be emerging and you might find yourself on completely foreign territory.
Mars in Gemini trines Saturn in Aquarius on September 25th through the 30th, and augurs that your skills and your know-how could become very handy in the weeks ahead. The end of the month closes with Venus entering Libra on the 29th which may emphasize new career directions and the emergence of generally pleasing endeavors at this time.
