September 2012 Aries Horoscope

The cost of freedom

You're tested this month when circumstances beyond your control thwart your pursuit of your heart's desire. With eclectic Uranus in your 1st House of Personality, you're in a long-term process of reclaiming your individuality. You could push so hard this month that you inadvertently become a threat to someone whom you really want as an ally.

Your key planet, Mars the Warrior, is in passionate Scorpio and your 8th House of Transformation throughout the month, urging you to beat the drums of rebellion on September 3-4, when he aspects Pluto and Uranus. The second of seven squares between Uranus and dark Pluto in your 10th House of Career is exact on September 19. The first one, on June 24, may have triggered your discontent, but the issues you face are complex and may not reach final resolution until the last Uranus-Pluto square on March 16, 2015.

The Virgo New Moon on September 15 falls in your 6th House of Details, making this an ideal time to take small strategic steps on your great journey. Instead of making grandiose plans without substance, do something manageable that has lasting impact.

The Sun's entry into socially astute Libra on September 22 is the Fall Equinox and a time to balance your personal ambitions with those of a partner or workmate. The heat is on as intense aspects fuel the relationship pressure cooker right up through the fiery Aries Full Moon on September 29.

Keep in Mind this Month
Everything seems to be in a state of change, yet taking your time before reacting will work to your ultimate advantage.

Key Dates for Aries

September 18-20: Now or Never
You're more urgent than ever about finding your direction in life when profound Pluto ends its retrograde phase on September 18. It feels as if your whole future depends on what you do now as the wobbly square between reckless Uranus and Pluto becomes exact on September 19. Don't shoot off at the mouth before considering the impact of your words when mischievous Mercury in your 7th House of Partners opposes Uranus and squares Pluto on September 20.

September 25-29: Unstable Ground
Your patience is tested in the tempestuous few days before the Aries Full Moon on September 29. This wild lunation is conjunct electrifying Uranus in your 1st House of Personality, and square transformational Pluto in your 10th House of Status. But the waves are already overwhelming you when the cosmic lovers, Mars and Venus, create stressful aspects to the Uranus-Pluto square on September 25-26. Instead of trying to control your environment, pay attention to your feelings and change the way you react.
