Star Wisdom | September 2012


Life lurches forward mid-month as heavyweight outer planets Uranus and Pluto square off, pushing us to new levels of self-transformation. There’s no turning back now, so we’ve got to get exceptionally real about what we want to create and dive right into it.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You’ve been asking to be shown your mission, and you should get your wish later this month. At least one other person in your life helps you see what you really want out of life and the ways in which you push this dream away. Don’t kill the messenger — but also be willing to cut ties with people who clearly don’t share your vision.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You get a fresh start on a creative project or romance, thanks to the New Moon on the 15th. Don’t over-analyze this; you know what you want so use your mind to plan your strategy and attract the resources you need. You may feel overloaded with work at the end of the month, but you receive an illumination when you least expect it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…You’ve still got family stuff to clear from your psyche. The universe is helping you see those old patterns with exceptional clarity in the first half of the month, so make time to do the work. Once the Sun shifts into Libra on the 22nd, you feel liberated. You realize there is a place in the world where you and your creative mind can flourish and be appreciated.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…If you do one thing in September, allow yourself to see the connection between your relationship(s) and your life’s work. You can’t go around leaking life energy and expect to have the success you want. It’s time to get serious about doing the work you came here to do and tighten up the ship. If they’re not helping you move forward, why are they still in the picture?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You get crucial information about money and the attitudes that hold you back from abundance on or near the New Moon on the 15th. People love who you are and what you do, so why are you holding yourself back? Once you answer that question honestly, you’re free to step into the next level of your life.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You are feeling more like yourself than you have in some time! Beware of the temptation to engage in endless self-analysis. With Jupiter in your career house what you need now is action. Don’t wait until you know exactly how things should play out. Take the first step and be open to surprise endings.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Hold off on any life-defining acts until the Sun moves out of your 12th House at the Equinox. You’re going to make significant life changes in the coming weeks, but you’ll have much more personal power at your disposal once the Sun moves into your sign on the 22nd. And remember Saturn’s lesson: You are the authority in your life now.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…With your ruling planet Mars back home in your sign all month, your intuition and perceptiveness are off the charts. Hone that connection to your inner guidance, because you’re being asked to “read and react” this month. Rather than trying to control what you can’t control, view life as a wild but elegant dance or a suspense thriller starring you as the somewhat reluctant hero.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Lots of positive opportunity this month, as long as you remain aware of the part of you that wants to sabotage your success in a misguided attempt to “keep you safe.” The New Moon on the 15th brings a career opportunity that may involve releasing a job or role that isn’t working for you anyway. You are a channel for unlimited creativity right now — find a place where you can use it and be rewarded.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You could go from rags to riches overnight if you’re willing to forget everything you learned in the past and step into who you are in the present moment. Family patterns could erupt from your unconscious with shocking power and release forever just as quickly as they appear. You are the person of the hour, so make no excuses. Clear the past and step into a beautiful present.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…September’s astrology is pushing hard to help you clear the old thought patterns that have kept you trapped in a life that feels too small and boring. Claim the time and space you need to pour yourself into building the next stage of your life’s work. You’re the only one capable of making this vision real, so trust yourself and just do it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You’re coming into a much stronger awareness of who you are and what you need. As you step into your true Self, your relationships inevitably must shift. Use the New Moon on the 15th as an impetus to clearly define what you need going forward. This gives your significant others the choice to grow…or leave.

    As always, this Aries is encouraged and heartened by your spot-on astro-cast(s). Thank you for this monthly offering; though, I do miss the weekly Words For The People. : )

  2. Love your column and will be listening very closely to your Mars in Scorpio podcast. I find my rising sign forecast sometimes is more relevant than my sun sign forecast, so I always read them both.
