One of your greatest strengths is your sure-footedness in the pursuit of your goals. This month, though, the earth may feel less solid under your feet, for both long-term aspirations and immediate circumstances force you to alter your reliable patterns. You've already encountered the main planetary players in this tale; on September 19, volatile Uranus and volcanic Pluto make their second of seven stressful squares, which first occurred on June 24. These are not one-day events, but moments when you can see the tops of glaciers that will continue reshaping your life through March 16, 2015.
Yet while these transits sometimes pass unnoticed, the fiery Aries New Moon on September 29 sets off a charge of inner excitement -- or an avalanche of unexpected events that could knock you off balance. The Moon's close conjunction to Uranus in your domestic 4th House and its square to Pluto in your 1st House of Self shake up your living situation. However, keeping a sense humor and remaining open to change inspires you with fresh insights, while resistance is likely to only increase the pressure.
Gifts of love or money could start to flow when attractive Venus enters generous Leo and your 8th House of Deep Sharing on September 6. Sure, you may hear some big plans that stretch credibility, but you have more to gain by engaging your heart and raising your hopes than by stewing in skepticism or hanging back in fear.
The detailed Virgo New Moon on September 15 activates your 9th House of Travel and Education, prompting interest in expanding your mind and exploring faraway places. The Sun's entry into cooperative Libra -- the Fall Equinox -- and your 10th House of Public Life highlights professional relationships and responsibilities on September 22.
Keep in Mind this Month
Uncertainty can be your friend when you give your mind permission to wander. Your imagination can lead you to treasures you wouldn't otherwise find.
Key Dates for Capricorn
September 3-5: Rallying the Troops
You may feel underappreciated by a partner when needy Venus in your 7th House of Others squares stingy Saturn on September 3. Still, a tight Sun-Saturn semisquare and potent Mars-Pluto sextile show that clearly defined desires and concentrated efforts can produce positive results under less-than-optimal conditions. Cerebral Mercury's creative trine with incisive Pluto on September 4 and smart sextile with go-getter Mars on September 5 deepen your insights and sharpen your words to help you motivate co-workers and friends.
SUPER NOVA DAY
September 29: Break on Through to the Other Side
Full Moons almost always raise emotional tides. Your feelings swell to extremes that can, at best, lead you to breakthroughs of awareness. Today's trailblazing Aries Full Moon lights a fire in your 4th House of Roots, stirring up restless feelings with a little splash of mischief on the side. However, the lack of stability that you experience at home or the uncertainty you have about your career could be a catalyst that turns your life in an exciting new direction.
