This month kicks off with a frenzy that can be a thrilling time or an annoying distraction. However, the real action builds to a crescendo when volatile Uranus squares volcanic Pluto on September 19 -- the second in a series of seven squares that began on June 24 and recurs through 2015. With Pluto in your 6th House of Self-Improvement, this is a chance to look at your routines and eliminate habits and behavior patterns that don't enhance your life. Of course, it's not easy to alter the rhythm of your daily grind, and the square from unexpected Uranus in your 9th House of Future Vision creates conflict that can provoke you to act suddenly in an unconventional matter. Others may be surprised or even shocked with the new you.
Impulsive Mars and logical Mercury trigger the Uranus-Pluto square and support your desire for change on September 3-5, but not without also increasing your anxiety and inciting you to take unnecessary risks. On September 12-13, alluring Venus tempts you with unusual romantic possibilities that can threaten the status quo, especially if you're feeling bored or stifled.
The detail-oriented Virgo New Moon on September 15 falls in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem, encouraging you to step back from the larger issues and take stock: How well are you expressing your true values? It's hard to know what to think when the Uranus-Pluto square is stressed by analytical Mercury on September 20. Your feelings are pulled all over the map when Venus and Mars enter the picture on September 25-26. The feisty Aries Full Moon on September 29 can be extremely exciting, yet it's nearly impossible to solidify plans at this time.
Keep in Mind this Month
Sudden insight offers glimpses of your future, yet you still must come back to the present and live your life right now.
September 13-16: Now for Something Completely Different
Positive change fills the air on September 13, when beautiful Venus in theatrical Leo trines unorthodox Uranus. Step out of the box by taking a chance and reinventing your image. But the cautious Virgo New Moon on September 15 activates your 2nd House of Possessions, shifting your attention from seeking independence to protecting your assets. Being sensible isn't necessarily fun, so your pragmatism quickly morphs into a blind optimism on September 16, fueled by an audacious Mars-Jupiter quincunx.
SUPER NOVA DAY
September 29: Wake Up!
You could lose your temper when Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, squares the Sun in your 3rd House of Communication and the red-hot Aries Full Moon in your 9th House of Big Ideas. Make sure your arguments are factual and stick to the present situation, because Pluto can raise unresolved issues from the subconscious. Additionally, the Full Moon's conjunction to wild Uranus attracts a lightning bolt of awareness that catalyzes a much-needed emotional breakthrough.
