September 2012 Scorpio Horoscope

Riders on the storm

This month finds you working diligently to get along with colleagues, with the Sun in systematic Virgo and your 11th House of Groups until September 22. Yet despite your best intentions to be a team player, canyons of deep discontent within you may have you thinking about making major changes in your life.

The source of these feelings is the long-lasting and potentially disruptive square between radical Uranus and extreme Pluto. It makes its second appearance on September 19 in a series of seven squares that started on June 24 and ends on March 16, 2015. Nevertheless, you're able to keep up a cooperative front for most of the month -- you may even receive appreciation and admiration for meeting your professional obligations with good cheer when validating Venus enters bright and shiny Leo in your 10th House of Career on September 6.

Erudite Mercury enters accommodating Libra on September 16, and the Sun follows suit on September 22, marking the Autumn Equinox and engendering a spirit of compromise. Yet because these events occur in your 12th House of Secrets, you may be hiding your unhappiness behind sweet smiles and sappy words.

Your true feelings about work can erupt on September 29, when the Full Moon in reckless Aries ignites a firestorm in your 6th House of Employment. A lunar conjunction with electrifying Uranus and a tense square with fierce Pluto blow away superficiality and expose your raw emotions. Chaos and crisis may ensue, yet these can be powerful catalysts that propel you toward a more exciting and fulfilling career.

Keep in Mind this Month

Yes, you must behave politely in front of others, but don't let that keep you from acknowledging the truth you feel in your heart.

Key Dates for Scorpio

September 11-12: Realigning Expectations
You're easily wounded by harsh words following a sensitive Mercury-Venus semisquare on September 11. Disagreement, though, doesn't mean disapproval, so try not to take what you hear personally. Insecurity in relationships could escalate with an aloof Venus-Pluto quincunx on September 12. If love or money is lacking, readjust your priorities and maximize the resources you have instead of worrying about what you're missing.

September 25-27: Force of Nature
Persistent Mars in Scorpio tangles with Uranus and Pluto on September 25 to undermine cooperation. Venus also creates unstable aspects with Uranus and Pluto on September 25-26 that seem like challenges to your self-worth. This is a volatile period when anger can erupt and damage a relationship. Still, if you can maintain an ounce of objectivity, a smidgen of humor or a dash of originality, you could turn a potential crisis into an act of liberation and enjoy the chemistry of a sexy Venus-Mars square on September 27.
