Those born on September 22 have a restless drive to begin all sorts of new projects. Usually they bring the one they are working on to completion but immediately set of on a new one without rest. They are also capable of handling several projects at the same time. Those born on this day have a low boredom threshold, and consequently demand challenging people and situations. They can be outgoing and dynamic types at one time, and solitary and unapproachable at another. In either case, their strong character is unmistakable.
Often September 22 people oscillate between an offensive and defensive posture. In one sense, such postures may be one and the same since a good offense is the best defense and vice-versa. Whether in a broad social context or on a personal level, the issues and ideas those born on this day are most often concerned with involve fairness and equality -- in general, matters pertaining to the delegation and exercise of power. In putting forth their arguments, they can be very ironic, witty and outright funny. Their humour, however, is not for everyone as it is liable to be off-beat, sardonic, perhaps even macabre.
September 22 people can display a disturbing lack of stability. Although they may be involved in quite respectable professions, one often gets the idea that the profession itself, or whatever they do in general, lends the consistency their lives so desperately need. Those born on this day can be at risk when their restless nature brings them into conflict with the powers that be. September 22 people think for themselves and will not tolerate others, particularly those of less intelligence, trying to tell them what to do. Thus, they must be careful not to arouse enemies and antagonise their colleagues.
Those born on September 22 can hide a warm heart under a forbidding exterior, but generally will only open up to people whom they deeply trust and value. Even then they may find it difficult to open all the way, however, principally because their orientation is highly realistic and the ironies of life all too visible to them. This day, indeed, carries insight and clarity of vision both literal and figurative. September 22 people are excellent judges of character, and capable of sizing people up very quickly. Those few friends whom they allow into their inner sanctum they value most highly, usually for life. It is quite possible that one or even both parents, in exceptional cases, will fall into this category.
September 22 people can often have a greater effect on those around them than they realise, and indeed can register a high degree of shock value. Because of their often disturbing impact, they should seek to be more aware of their effect on others, both friends and foes alike. True warriors in the battle of life, they must take stock of their armaments and defenses, using them judiciously and effectively, and avoid isolating and alienating themselves from the daily world of human values.
Numbers and Planets:
Those born on the 22nd of the month are ruled by the number 4 (2+2=4), and by the planet Uranus, which is both erratic and explosive. The number 4 typically represents rebellion, idiosyncratic beliefs and a desire to change the rules. Because those governed by the number 4 so often take the opposing point of view and are remarkably self-assured, they sometimes arouse antagonism and make enemies, often secret ones. The explosive, restless qualities mentioned above may only be heightened in September 22 people since, as Virgos, they come under the influence of the dynamic and speedy planet, Mercury.
The 22nd card of the Major Arcana is The Fool, who in several versions of the Tarot is shown blithely stepping over the edge of a cliff. Some interpretations picture him as a foolish man who has given up his reason, others a highly spiritualised being free of material considerations. Positive meanings include renouncing resistance and following instincts freely; foolish acts, impulsiveness and annihilation are the negative aspects. The highly evolved Fool has followed life's path, experienced its lessons and become one with his/her own vision.
Those born on September 22 must beware of the depressive effects of isolation. Also they should avoid attracting the animosity of others, whether in the form of bad vibes or physical violence. Because of their restless nature, they may be accident-prone and inflict all kinds of minor hurts unwittingly on themselves and others. Paradoxically they may also display a talent for healing. Since their taste in food tends to the exotic, they must be attentive to the effects of spicy, unusual or rich foods on their body. If they can eat from a balance menu it will help control restless and possibly destructive impulses. Only mild to moderate exercise is recommended for those born on this day.
Don't despise those who are more open and gullible than yourself. Get in touch with your own innocent nature. Try not to box yourself into one kind of outlook. Give yourself time to dream and to recharge.

Twice members transform into princesses
Twice appeared on the cover of Marie Claire fashion magazine’s August issue looking like Disney princesses.
The K-pop group recently released the song “Dance the Night Away.”
In the pictures released, each of the nine singers of Twice put on white laced dresses and pastel chiffon outfits.
Jihyo, Momo and Sana donned dresses with flower patterns. Dahyun and Chaeyoung flashed big smiles for the camera.
In an interview that accompanied the photo spread, Sana said she had participated in writing the lyrics for the song with Momo and Mina.
Jihyo shared how she had gotten a tan while shooting the music video for the track. Tzuyu and Nayeon said dance moves for the new song are especially fun because they include plenty of leg movements.

TWICE Celebrates 1000 Days Since Debut With Heartfelt Messages To Fans
TWICE reached a meaningful milestone on July 15, which marked 1000 days since their debut!
To celebrate the occasion, the members held a Naver V Live broadcast to talk about a variety of topics, including their most memorable moments. They looked back on their history and touched upon meaningful events like their “Like OOH-AHH” showcase, winning the Best Rookie Award at the Mnet Asia Music Awards (MAMA), and their music show wins.
The members also showed their appreciation for their fans through various social media posts throughout the day.
On their Twitter account, a photo of the group was posted with the caption, “Thank you for being by TWICE’s side for 1000 days. It’s because of ONCEs [official TWICE fanclub name] that TWICE was happy, is happy, and will continue to be happy. We hope that all of us will keep the excitement and special feelings from our first meeting 1000 days ago in our hearts and continue to look forward to the same goals and spend another 1000 days together.”
They also shared a link to TWICE’s first meeting with ONCEs through a Naver V Live broadcast and captioned it, “The day we first met.”
Some of the members also took to TWICE’s Instagram account to post heartfelt messages to their fans. The members have been sharing selfies and personal messages to their fans throughout this comeback, and the members who posted on July 15 did not forget to mention the milestone and express their gratitude.
Nayeon posted a handful of selfies and wrote, “It must have been very tiring and hot today, but thank you so, so much for coming to support us. I wish we could have laughed and talked together more today, but we really were able to complete our performances well because so many ONCEs came to see us. And it’s already our 1000th day. Wow, though we don’t have a performance prepared like for our 500th day, I’ve come with some selfies,” and the hashtag “I’m grateful and happy for the last 1000 days.”
Chaeyoung also posted a series of photos with the caption, “They say that today is TWICE’s 1000th day. TWICE and ONCE, I love you. It’s because we have ONCEs that TWICE is able to exist. Let’s stay together for the next 1000 days, and put many more zeros behind that number.”
Dahyun also thanked fans and wrote, “Congratulations on our 1000 days together. That’s the amount of time that ONCEs and TWICE have spent together. I hope there is nothing but happiness ahead of us. Thank you, our ONCEs.”
Congratulations to TWICE and ONCEs on reaching an important milestone!
