Star signs and cannabis strains: September 2022 horoscopes

It’s Virgo Season, Stargazers! It’s a month of restraint! Budgets! Loving your friends! Making elaborate and detailed plans!

We have a peaceful start to the month with Venus entering Virgo on September 4. That turbulence-free break doesn’t last long — Mercury will enter retrograde in Libra. Phew, grab the tissues because people will be in their feelings. There’s a full moon in Pisces which sheds a little (much needed) light on the best parts of ourselves.

And, the moment many have been waiting for: the Fall Equinox is on September 22. Fall stands as a reminder that all things will pass eventually, retrogrades, petty grievances. Autumn is here to give you the reset you need.
