Resident astrologer Lorna Blake looks at what's in store for Capricorns in September 2012
Horoscope for Capricorn September 2012 (Capricorn 22 December– 21 January)
Mercury enters Virgo and your area of higher learning and philosophy on the 1st. This transit increases your curiosity and urge to expand your mind, marking this a good time to undertake any kind of study and education, or embark on journey abroad. Intellectual conversations are important for you during this period. Be careful between the 1st and 2nd when a lack of clarity may cause you to draw the wrong conclusions of any facts you have gathered. The New Moon on the 16th follows Mercury’s path highlighting the need for you to focus on personal growth by expanding your consciousness. The aim is for you to experience different circumstances, which will renew your spirit.
Family, Love and Relationships
If you have been very busy pursuing your career there may be conflict with your partner on the 3rd if they are feeling neglected, this will soon pass. Your values turn deeper with Venus’ entry into Leo and your area of joint possessions and transformation on the 7th. Intimate relationships will become more intense through sexual expression and you may become aware of factors in your relationship which change you in some way. It is possible that you become somewhat jealous and possessive during this transit. Between the 12th and the 13th after some distrust, you will feel a need to shake up your intimate relationship, wanting to share deep feelings with your partner and new forms of pleasure. This brings you a new perspective. Issues between home and your sense of personal freedom crop up between the 18th and 19th. This conflict is a situation which either happened suddenly, or was decided in June and now resurfaces. After a period of deliberation you may decide that you need to make long lasting change for a fresh start, whatever happens things will settle down.
Between the 25th and 27th passions run riot and you may find yourself intensely attracted to a friend or someone within your network. Sexual undercurrents may intrude on the other so it is best to rein your emotions in unless your ardour is welcome. Couples should make use of and enjoy this transit. The Full Moon on the 30th centres on your domestic area with the need for you to strike a balance between work and your home life, after a period or focusing on your career goals. If you don’t prioritize there is the risk of over-extending yourself.
Business and Finance
Between the 7th and the 3rd October, it is possible that your partner may receive money through a source which may benefit you. The Last Quarter Moon on the 8th asks you to accept reasonable alternatives instead of sticking to a rigid set of rules without allowing any flexibility. This follows anything which began at last month’s New Moon. Mercury’s focus changes from expanding your mind to turning your thoughts to your professional life on the 17th and the Sun follows into this area on the 23rd. This is time to review your career, vocation or job search and ask yourself whether your current path is working for you. If not then adjust what you are doing in order to meet your aims. Taking a course or studying new techniques will help your career. Discussions with bosses are favoured during this transit and communications in some form is highlighted.
The First Quarter Moon on the 22nd continues the theme of your professional life asking you to now forge your career with self-discipline. You may feel that your personal identity and freedom is limited at this time, but this will not last. It really is important to put in the hard work over the next week.
Health and Wellbeing
Generally fine as long as you get plenty of rest and relaxation considering your busy professional life this month.
