After their double conjunction in February and March 2022, Venus and Mars square each other about a week after the September 2022 Pisces Full Moon. With Mercury retrograde and the Sun opposing Neptune on the same day, the likelihood of lovers’ quarrels and money mix-ups is pretty high.
In many ways, this has the plot of Midsummer Night’s Dream written all over it – plenty of sexual tension, romantic high-jinks and misadventures. Think of Shakespeare’s famous quote: ‘The course of true love never did run smooth’…
IN astrological terms, this could translate to everything from romantic misunderstandings and love triangles, to confusing business deals or a creative project or business vision with no clear strategy or plan of execution – especially given the confusing energy of Mercury retrograde in relationship sign, Libra and the foggy Sun-Neptune opposition. Think someone who has ‘all the gear and no idea’.
To help get you started, I have provided a summary below with some suggestions for how this particular aspect could manifest.
