September 2022 horoscopes: Skeletons in the closet

Halloween comes a month early

It may be September, not October that is approaching, but you’re going to think Halloween has come early this year. Plan for all sorts of skeletons popping out of the closet and ghosts of relationships past coming back to haunt you. Read on to find out what to expect this month for your sign.


August 23rd - September 22nd
Though you’re feeling really optimistic about your relationship right now, you may be disappointed this month when some of your daydreams about the future don’t play out as you imagined. There may be differences in the vision you and your partner have. Or, if you’re dating, it may become clear that regardless of the attraction you both feel, the bottom line is that you and your love interest don’t want the same things. Though these conflicts may be deflating, you’ll thank yourself later for focusing on the things that really matter, no matter what.


September 23rd - October 22nd
The ghost of a relationship past may pop up for a haunt this month. Whether it’s a text from an ex or a full-on run in while you’re out and about, you are likely going to be revisiting some unfinished business with an important past lover. Clear-minded decisions around this person will be hard to come by this month, as your energy will be skewed in the direction of irrationality and emotionality. Don’t book the wedding venue just yet.


October 23rd - November 21st
If there’s been anything waiting to blow up in your current relationship, this month is likely to bring it out. But the way it emerges is likely going to come through unrealistic expectations on both sides not being met. The disappointment that follows will reveal where your relationship needs a reality check. This month will provide an opportunity to create a healthier and more realistic relationship container for you and your loved one.


November 22nd - December 21st
Though you may have recently made a bunch of enthusiastic promises to your love interest, this month you’ll be asked to cash the checks you wrote with your words, and you may come up short. This will understandably cause a breach of trust between you and your loved one. To repair, you will need to show up and take care of the practical details that are the backbone of the relationship. Doing so will build trust in the relationship.


December 22nd - January 19th
There may be aspects of your relationship that have been on “autopilot” recently, and this month will reveal to you where you need to show up and put more effort in if you’re going to create the love life you really want. But being more present and engaged in your relationship may make you feel a little unsettled right now, especially since strong emotions are likely running the show. Communicating better so that you can feel centered alone and together will be the best way forward.


January 20th - February 18th
You may find yourself putting a lot more effort into your relationships this month, as you will be drawn towards social connectedness. This will likely include time with a significant other or love interest. Unfinished business with a past lover could also emerge at this time, calling on you to tie up loose ends. Though a decision may be hard to make, it’s important to get down to brass tacks about what matters the most to you.


February 19th - March 20th
Your optimism about an important relationship in your life might be slightly overblown right now. It’s hard to regulate your emotions, and your wild daydreams and fantasies about what the future holds aren’t going to help. This could lead you to your bubble being burst in a harsh way, so continually try to tether yourself to reality throughout the month. And pay attention to what the relationship is actually like, rather than what you want to project on it.


March 21st - April 19th
There’s likely an important relationship from the recent past re-emerging at this time, and it’s key to remember why you left it to begin with. Were the reasons you left fundamental ones that are still unresolved? This is an important consideration as you face what might be round two with this person. Think hard about whether this relationship can align with your authentic truth. If you have to abandon yourself to make it work, it may be better to quit while you’re ahead.


April 20th - May 20th
Your love life will require focus this month, as you can expect to have some difficulty harmonizing with your significant other or love interest. It’s not that attraction and desire aren’t there, it’s more that the ways you’re both communicating about the direction you’re going in aren’t aligning. Though that may sound like a deal-breaker, slowing down and communicating thoroughly may help you find resolution.


May 21st - June 20th
This month will tempt you to fall back into bed with somebody from your recent relationship past. Is it a good idea? Only time will tell. But for now, it’s irresistible. Physical desire will be burning much brighter than reason this month. As things progress, sore spots outside of the bedroom will once again be revealed. It’s up to you to decide if the great sex is enough to carry the relationship.


June 21st -July 22nd
This month, an important person in your life will want to change the plans you’d made together. Though you will outwardly be as understanding and generous as always, you might feel like it’s a sign that they’re not putting in the same effort as you, which could plant the seeds of a deeper conflict. Though that may sound undesirable, if you address it now instead of letting it fester, you might be able to straighten out boundaries and desires with this person, ultimately leading to more stability in expectations.


July 23rd - August 22nd
Enthusiastic plans within your relationship could come to a grinding halt when a wrench is thrown into the works this month. Either you or your love may have some unfinished business emerging from another relationship in the recent past. Though that may feel a bit threatening, and will test the strength of the relationship, the truth will set you free. Tying up loose ends and thinking deeply about what matters most to you will help you commit to what’s best for you.
