Your horoscope for September 13 to 19, 2012
What’s up with the higher frequency of weather extremes and earth shakes? What’s the real story behind Canada’s cut-off with Iran? Do the Republicans have a key to the White House front door? Will there be hockey? Surely you’ve noticed the intensity building.
Saturday’s new moon in Virgo sets us to work on the clean-up, correction, repair, modification, and improvement program. Mercury in Virgo aligned with this new moon points to the lack and the need, the mistakes and the healing required. A key person or piece of information can set the compass now.
If talks and negotiations have faltered, the new moon and Mercury’s advance into conciliatory and cooperative Libra on Sunday can bring things back to the bargaining table, hopefully with a better set of tools.
In retrograde since April, Pluto in Capricorn resumes direct motion late Monday, adding heave-ho to Tuesday’s Uranus square Pluto. We could be hit hard with something. This is the second bust-and-thrust alignment of the year; there are five more to go through 2015. As we experienced in the 1930s and 1960s, when Uranus/Pluto sets to task our reality base is radically and irrevocably reshaped.
This week, Pluto sets those in control or vying for control onto a more forceful power-play surge. Unpredictable Uranus in Aries keeps our reality and our reactiveness hot-wired. I’m sure we all agree: the sharp edge is cutting a little too close for comfort.
March 19 - April 19
Thursday continues your excellent roll. Strike while the iron’s hot. Saturday’s new moon sets a productive move-it-forward backdrop. Matters to do with work and working it out should see better progress. Starting Sunday, Mercury in Libra puts partnership, financial, and legal matters on the front burner. Tuesday/Wednesday, outside forces are formidable. Something’s gotta give—and it will.
April 19 - May 20
Creativity, home, and love life are on an improvement curve as of Saturday’s new moon. Your personal sense of well-being is on the upswing too. While they may be far from perfect, life circumstances show better prospects now. Your presence in the world around you and in specific relationships is experiencing a rapid shift. As of Tuesday/Wednesday, Uranus-Pluto thrusts the next play into action.
May 20 - June 20
Have you reached an impasse? Feel blocked by circumstance or thwarted by another? Over the next week, you should see a significant breakthrough in money- and home-related matters. Remember Neil Armstrong’s famous words: even if it’s a small step forward to begin with, it could be huge in terms of what it sets up for you down the road.
June 20 - July 22
Mars in Scorpio says it’s time to drive a harder bargain, to dare to risk something more. Ask yourself how significant is your need, your desire, your sense of deserving—or your sense of righteous indignation? Fence-sitting is a waste of time. You deserve what you reach for. Your results will be of much higher calibre when you commit your all.
July 22 - August 22
Venus trine Uranus on Thursday can provide a preview of what’s to come, or this lucky flint combo could deliver the whole package at once. Life’s synchronicities are especially gifting over the next week. Once you spot the opportunity, grab it and don’t look back. A new project, procedure, investment, location, or line of work could be your golden ticket.
August 22 - September 22
Saturday’s new moon starts you on a whole new line of thinking, being, and doing.

Friday/Saturday, the key is in the ignition. Tuesday/Wednesday, empowering Pluto thrusts you into drive and thrive.
September 22 - October 22
Seize Thursday’s here-and-now gift. Let stream-of-consciousness, a spontaneous invite, or a fresh spark take you where they may. The untapped or uncharted is a larger reservoir than you are aware of now. You’ll start to feel a momentum switch as early as Sunday, when Mercury advances into Libra. Tuesday/Wednesday, watch for a significant breakthrough or major forward thrust.
October 22 - November 21
If it doesn’t deliver the goods, why bother? Saturday’s new moon helps you decipher what works to your best advantage. Mercury in Libra, starting Sunday, says only the best will do.

November 21 - December 21
Thursday, success and satisfaction are easily met. Creativity, confidence, and showmanship strike a match. Saturday’s new moon begins a productive professional and personal life fix-it chapter. Starting Sunday, Mercury in Libra improves options, sales, people connections, and negotiations. Tuesday/Wednesday compels you to push past it and do what must be done. Past this turning point, it’s onward and upward.
December 21 - January 20
Make every moment count. If there’s something to say, somewhere to be, something to do, then get at it. In addition to being a good getaway or workshop weekend, Saturday’s new moon shortens the distance to a goal or prospect. As of Tuesday/Wednesday, you can’t delay, avoid, or resist any longer. Uranus/Pluto resets the time-has-come clock.
January 20 - February 18
Put yourself out there on Thursday, and you’ll be glad you did. Saturday’s new moon increases the need to get it handled sooner rather than later.

Thursday’s work, benefit, or result is as good as it gets. What’s shaping up is only the beginning of so much more to come. Regarding work, the money chase, health, studies, or collaborative undertakings, Saturday’s new moon triggers a fruitful fresh-start initiative. Tuesday/Wednesday can lift a heavy lid or blow the ceiling right off.
