September 2012 Libra Horoscope

Change is in the air

Unexpected events keep you hopping this month, yet the sudden shifts have an extremely important function. Surprises are not meant to upset you; rather, their purpose is to reveal suppressed feelings and unresolved issues now so they don't cause too much trouble later.

The high-powered square between catalytic Uranus in your 7th House of Others and passionate Pluto in your 4th House of Foundations is exact on September 19, and sets the tone for the entire month. This is the second in a series of seven occurrences, and it may reactivate domestic stress that previously surfaced around June 24. But even if you feel a great sense of urgency to calm an unruly partner or to manage a domineering relative, remember that the current situation is connected to a bigger scenario that doesn't play out until March 16, 2015.

You must balance logic and intuition to reach your goals as the analytical Virgo New Moon on September 15 activates your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery. But ultimately, your greatest attribute is your ability to be fair -- and you'll need it when you're called on to mediate a family argument as Mercury in objective Libra triggers the unstable Uranus-Pluto square on September 20.

Whether or not your act of diplomacy is successful, the Autumn Equinox on September 22 is a time of culmination and renewal for you as the Sun enters your sign. Tempers rise at the feisty Aries Full Moon on September 29, when this Sun-Moon opposition forms rebellious aspects with Uranus and Pluto. However, this is also a time when a calculated risk could precipitate the changes you've been itching to make.

Keep in Mind this Month
Focus your attention on the present—while also carefully considering the long-term consequences of your current activities.

Key Dates for Libra

September 6-8: Over the Top
You're in a party mood when your key planet, Venus, prances into lively Leo and your 11th House of Friends and Associates on September 6, enticing you to spend more time with others. But Venus' aspects with exuberant Jupiter and escapist Neptune on September 6-7, combined with an extravagant Sun-Jupiter square on September 7, tempt you to take your social activities too far. Don't pretend everything is okay when fast-talking Mercury squares Jupiter on September 8. If you had deadlines you didn't meet or made commitments you cannot keep, honestly admit it, accept the consequences, and move on.

September 25-27: Family Feud
When Venus and Mars, the cosmic lovers, square off on September 27, satisfaction will likely elude you -- but if you're willing to stick with your pursuit of happiness, you can ultimately improve your personal life. Although the formidable Uranus-Pluto square was exact on September 19, contentious Mars and magnetic Venus trigger this profound planetary pattern on September 25-26 to stimulate stress at home or within your family. Mars in unwavering Scorpio pressures you to fight for what you want, while Venus in proud Leo encourages your theatrical behavior, but your immediate needs may be no match for the transformative energies around you. Luckily, a panoramic Mercury-Jupiter trine on September 26 enables you to see the bigger picture so you're not overwhelmed by the current magnitude of emotions.
