Capricorn Horoscope: September 2013
You have significant choices to make this month as changing circumstances require you to reconsider your plans and adjust them as needed. It's tempting to seek security in what you know, rather than facing the unknown, especially on the days preceding the focused Virgo New Moon on September 5 that lands in your 9th House of Big Ideas.
Frustration may set in as you try to balance your need to gather reliable information with your relentless drive to distinguish yourself professionally when messenger Mercury shifts into your 10th House of Career on September 9. However, pushy Mars in heroic Leo runs into a confining square with your ruling planet, Saturn, the same day, forcing you to slow down even if you're ready to forge ahead.
Karmic Saturn -- moving through passionate Scorpio and your 11th House of Friends and Wishes -- can reveal a widening gulf between your personal goals and the commitments you've made to others as it forms an uneasy semisquare to the Sun on September 16.
Saturn joins the soulful North Node of the Moon on September 17, confirming the importance of your current decisions that could drastically alter your path in life. Sexy Venus stimulates intense feelings when entering Scorpio on September 11, yet her conjunctions with the North Node and sobering Saturn on September 18 demand that you must take responsibility for your long-term goals, rather than seeking immediate gratification.
The imaginative Pisces Full Moon on September 19 illuminates your 3rd House of Learning, reminding you to hold on to the magic of your dreams. Thankfully, a profound but subtle transformative Saturn-Pluto sextile on September 21 blesses you with the resources you need for the metamorphosis you've already begun.
Keep in Mind this Month
You won't reach your goals overnight. However, you're making more progress than you realize. Slow down long enough to appreciate how much you've already accomplished.
Key Dates for Capricorn
September 14: Tunnel of Love
You're emboldened to act immediately today when an idealistic Venus-Neptune trine enchants you with romantic dreams while expressive Mars in your 8th House of Intimacy harmonizes with edgy Uranus. At the same time, contemplative Mercury's square to insatiable Pluto can trick you into obsessing about a fantasy. If you back off and give others emotional breathing room, you'll improve your chances for a surprising success.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
September 19-22: The Power of Now
Nervous Mercury's square to excessive Jupiter could bring information overload on September 19. Meanwhile, the mystical Pisces Full Moon distracts you further from the workings of everyday life. However, the subtle direct turn of evolutionary Pluto on September 20 is strengthened by its cooperative sextile to orderly Saturn on September 21, helping you eliminate anything that has become obsolete in your life, including unattainable ambitions and manipulative people. The Sun's shift into Libra and your professional 10th House on September 22 is the Autumn Equinox and a reminder to balance pursuing your career ambitions with time to relax and regenerate your vitality.
