Aries Horoscope: September 2013

The Devil's in the Details

Your success this month could hinge on your willingness to pay more attention to minor matters, even if they seem petty. The New Moon in precise Virgo occurs in your 6th House of Service on September 5, and you may feel picked on by overly critical people or stuck with boring tasks. But the New Moon's favorable sextile to benevolent Jupiter offers a world of opportunities if you become more conscientious about your work.

Listening with an open mind becomes particularly valuable when verbal Mercury enters diplomatic Libra and your 7th House of Partners on September 9. Don't rush to respond to delicate questions; thinking through your answers lets you stand up for your side without alienating others. Relationship-conscious Venus' move into intense Scorpio and your 8th House of Deep Sharing on September 11 is another signal to deal with people in a more thoughtful and considerate manner.

On September 19, the dreamy Pisces Full Moon in your 12th House of Secrets underscores the importance of discretion. You may want more time alone now, so make sure to monitor your energy levels and take breaks before you wear yourself out. Quiet communion with nature, contemplation of life's meaning, and other spiritual pursuits nourish your soul and enrich your inner world.

You are able to accumulate professional power with subtlety and grace on September 21 when ambitious Saturn makes its last sextile to generous Jupiter in a series that began on December 26, 2012, and repeated on March 8. The Sun's entry into cooperative Libra and your 7th house on September 22 marks the Vernal Equinox, drawing creative, confident, and charming partners your way.

Keep in Mind this Month

If you feel hemmed in by a million and one little tasks, make each one a tiny work of art and you'll weave together a rich tapestry of fulfillment.

Key Dates for Aries


September 9-11: All or Nothing

Patience, planning, and practice are needed on September 9, when rambunctious Mars in your 5th House of Play crosses paths in a tense square to humorless Saturn in your 8th House of Intimacy. No matter how entertaining you are now, your audience may not be in a responsive mood. Still, you can earn respect by working hard to complete one essential task -- and gaining the trust of a demanding person may be worth the effort. The air is still thick on September 11, because a disturbing Mars-Pluto quincunx impedes your progress with power struggles. If you choose to engage in a battle and expect to win, be sure that you're ready to take it to the limit. However, you might suddenly realize that it's not worth the risk and wisely step aside.

September 14: Element of Surprise

An inventive Mars-Uranus trine reveals new and unusual ways to deal with adversaries or tackle tough jobs. Brilliant originality empowers you to perform what may look like a miracle to worriers and doubters who expect you to fail.
