September 2012 Sagittarius Horoscope

No easy escape

Your career takes center stage this month with Mercury and the Sun spotlighting your 10th House of Public Life until September 16 and September 22, respectively. But action-hero Mars in shrewd Scorpio and your 12th House of Privacy until October 6 has you working behind the scenes. Fortunately, your concentrated effort goes a long way on September 3-6, when Mars forms helpful aspects with impressive Pluto, communicative Mercury and effusive Jupiter.

You receive another boost of energy as popular Venus enters fellow fire sign Leo and your expansive 9th House on September 6. However, you could promise more than you're able to deliver or underestimate the complexity of a job when the Sun and Mercury square Jupiter on September 7-8.

The discerning Virgo New Moon on September 15 activates your ambitious 10th House, and is an excellent time to prioritize your tasks. Focus on one specific goal and set aside other, less important aspirations.

Meanwhile, deeper rumblings are shaking your life as radical Uranus in your 5th House of Self-Expression forms the second of seven life-changing squares to relentless Pluto in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. Although this aspect is exact on September 19 -- the first was on June 24, and the series completes on March 16, 2015 -- you could feel the effects more strongly when it's stressed by mischievous Mercury on September 20, Mars and Venus on September 25-26, and the impetuous Aries Full Moon on the 29th. Your patience wears thin as financial pressures and your desire for personal freedom make you aware of the gulf between what you have and what you want.

Keep in Mind this Month
Change is inevitable—but it doesn't have to happen right away. Explore ways to reinvent yourself over time.

Key Dates for Sagittarius

September 7-10: Promises to Keep
It's a difficult time for relationships if you've led your partner to assume that all is well when it isn't, or if your own expectations are overinflated. Either way, you have specific tasks to complete as the Sun and Mercury move toward a conjunction on September 10 in your 10th House of Public Responsibility. But their squares to promising Jupiter in your 7th House of Others on September 7-8 enable you to accomplish these goals if you practice a bit of self-discipline.

September 25-29: A Perfect Storm
You experience a power struggle in a close relationship beginning on September 25, due to a series of disruptive aspects from Mars and Venus to the life-changing Uranus-Pluto square. It becomes increasingly apparent that your partner and you have very different goals as Venus squares Mars on September 27. Avoid reckless behavior when the rowdy Aries Full Moon on September 29 highlights your 5th House of Spontaneity, reactivating rebellious Uranus and dangerous Pluto. Instead of gambling on quick fixes, work toward long-term solutions.
