Woodlot Horoscopes for September 2016

Fall is the season of new starts, do-overs, and fresh beginnings. Now is a great time to try something different, as September is a hot month for relationships and dating. Many summer flings wash up, and new potentials may pop up. Venus (the planet of love) moves into Libra, and Mercury in Retrograde begins in all its glory. Remember, this will affect your communications (Mercury rules communication) and interactions with others. While you may be affected by this, Venus in Libra is a positive influence that will linger from Aug. 29 – September 23. Regardless of what energy comes your way, try to fall into something that makes you feel good, and embrace the new season with a healthy, humble and happy heart!

Aries by Katie Maasik

(March 21-April 19)

At this moment in my life, I know it’s not the time to stress about matters which I have no control over—even if I’d like to have control over them. Instead, I want to allow myself to fall into the free gap of something new and rejuvenating. Something that I am not just good at, but something I really enjoy—something that will make me feel good about my well-being. Mercury in Retrograde will challenge me to communicate the things that are truly going on for me. I know I have what it takes to rise above (essentially anything), and I know that I can solve my problems effectively when I take the time to think about them rationality without anger. Once I gain some sense of order, once I have an idea on how to map out what I want, I know I will be in a better place. I also know that I can make it happen, even if that requires me being more patient. While this will all help me, I also know that I need to lose control a little bit, and enjoy myself more. I want to get the most out of life, and really feel like I am living. I know that I am due for some inhibition-freeing fun, but even then I need to pace myself. Keeping a good pace is key to me surpassing obstacles in order to find inner harmony.

Taurus by Katie Maasik

(April 20-May 20)

I never feel out of control in my life (well, I wouldn’t say never, but it’s not a common issue) because I always take care of certain things. I wish I could control all the little things that I don’t talk about straight away—or that I could find a way to talk about them without sounding demanding. Mercury in Retrograde may force me to communicate concerns ineffectively, and I will try to keep a watch on that because it’s important for me to keep my cool. It’s obvious when I feel a certain way, but I don’t always speak on it, as I like to pick my battles. I hate fighting just for the sake of fighting. I would rather focus on the pleasures in life, which can soothe me, like a great trip, a satisfying drink, or a delicious meal. When I’m in my light, I work hard and I usually get what I want. Just when people think I am stationary, I surprise them by doing something totally un-basic and un-boring. I want to make the most of my time, and do the things I love over and over again. It’s not that I am a total creature of habit, but I happen to like what I like, and like it a lot. The people who know me, love me for my signature tastes! I have a side to me that is silly and fun-loving, and when you truly get to know me, you understand that I am the type to get all my ducks in a row (in my own way). For me, it’s usually just a matter of time before it all falls into place!

Gemini by Katie Maasik

(May 21-June 21)

It might feel like my feet are hitting the floor, but not for long, as I will be back up in the clouds, chasing some project or planning something new. The Fall month of September represents production, and I always want to make the most of my time and ensure that I am producing. I feel better knowing that I’m able to accomplish a lot with my day. Sure, I get lazy, but I would rather be out and about, and a part of something. I admit that I do like to know what I‘m doing in advance, but I can’t always promise how long I will last. You have to keep me on my toes, and keep me entertained. I also can’t promise that I won’t do something impulsively. If you want me, you’ve got to impress me on every level, but especially mentally. Yes, I am highly visual and notice physical flaws, but if I love your mind, and your energy, none of that matters. I can be the devoted lover you dreamed about, I just have to know that you are the right one for me. This Fall is a great opportunity for me to cherish what’s most important in my life, and to express the love that I feel for the people who stimulate me on a consistent basis. Gemini in love gets caught up in action, I’m happiest when I stop to take a moment and appreciate my love.

Cancer by Katie Maasik

(June 21-July 22)

I know I am happiest when I go with the flow and let life take its natural course, but there’s a part of me that just wants to know what will happen. I like when I am with people, but sometimes I have my limits. I do need time to revert back into my Cancer shell and reflect on life. There are so many things that I keep to myself. I will share them with a partner or friend that I really trust, but even then I have my limitations for opening up completely. It’s not to say that I don’t want to be surrounded in love and light—I do. I want to help foster something and see it grow, I want to be good for another person, but I also need to ensure that I am 100% good with myself. My best moments are when I am laughing and making other people laugh. When I feel comfortable I can be my entertaining and engaging self. But I can have a shy side too, so I have been known to go off and do my own thing at times. I like to feel a sense of home in my surroundings: the more comfortable I am, the more I will open up and allow myself to live in the moment. This is why building a home with the people that I love and trust is so important to me.

Leo by Katie Maasik

(July 23-August 22)

The Fall will be good for me, but it will involve readdressing some things that I’ve put on the backburner. I know ignoring the issues will not help them go away, even if sometimes I really wish it would! Leo doesn’t like to to pay attention to what’s negative, and would rather focus on how things are working out. Except the things which Leo needs to deal with are not always negative; in fact they could make life a whole lot easier. I don’t want to lose things that I have a lot invested in, especially my heart. This means means more to me than anything. I care so much for the people who are in my life that sometimes it’s hard to communicate with them in a way that is not loving. For Leo, the heart can often act as a compass as it directs me in ways that may not always line-up with my self-needs. Regardless, good times are ahead, I just have to remain true to myself, and own what I feel without regret or hesitation. If I ask for what I want, I just might get it. If I can’t get what I want, I won’t feel defeated, instead I will seek out someone who is prepared to give it to me. My needs are important, and I can’t put those on the shelf in order to save something that might not be worth saving. Things will unfold as thy will, but there is someone out there who will match your love, who will appreciate you in all you glory.

Virgo by Katie Maasik

(August 23-September 22)

I have this way about me that I might not even notice, but it appears that people value what I have to say. The people closest to me do come to me when they want to talk about something serious. I have power. Virgos are known for their intellect, and more and more, I notice that people are opening up to me. This is because I have the earthy, grounded, moral advice to really help someone in a real, and honest way. I hate being phony, and only admire modest confidence, which is why it is important for me to surround myself with genuine, loyal people. People like this appreciate what I have to say and appreciate it when people see my way with things. They know that If I like something that I really like something, and my opinion matters because I do have good taste. People are always telling Virgos not to worry, but that’s how we thrive, we are very analytical people who like to figure things out. This Fall I am going to open myself up even more and embrace the good things that are around me, I will work hard as I always do, but I will make quality time for those that truly matter. When I let go of inhibition, which can be hard for me to do, I know that I can enjoy the moment. Regardless, I will always speak my mind and speak the truth, and that is what people have come to respect me most for.

Libra by Katie Maasik

(September 23-October 22)

This is the perfect time for me to make my move, maybe a big move, and put some heart and soul towards that investment I’ve been putting off, and really start to let my passions roar. Taking a backseat has proven to be a smart move in the past, but with some things I know I have to be more forward and more forward thinking. The things I don’t release will only bother me later, and as I aim for harmony in my life, I know that not everyone can always be satisfied. I can do my part to keep my attitude in check, and treat people the way that I wish they would treat me. When people compliment me, I will say thank you because I will work on trusting that their kind words are sincere. I am charming, and can sometimes let my charm get me into trouble, but when I am using it with the people I love, I often win. I want to explore life, live and really do things, I want to bring people together and be a part of a group of friends that really motivates me through positive encouragement. There is an artist in me, which I will try to let shine this season, slowing but surely I will bring out my gifts and show the world what I can do. So many Libras have already reach that place of personal harmony and self-confidence, it’s only a matter of time before I do.

Scorpio by Katie Maasik

(October 23-November 21)

It makes me feel better when I know that I am giving something back to something or someone that matters. My heart is selective, but it is huge for the people that I love. I do admit, that a part of me would like to see something good returned to me, but I am willing to keep my head down and keep working until that happens. I know I have strength I am willing to lend that strength to anyone that I care about who might need it. I am not however willing to ask for the things that I want for myself, there is often too much work that needs to be done. I want love, but I need time for love and to be with a partner who understands that I have other life commitments that take up my time. Mercury in Retrograde could challenge me as I often do bite my tongue, I express myself and my feelings, but sometimes I have so much I want to say. I will try to keep my communications gentle and effective as I experience this, knowing that I do have a wise response in me if I take the time to find it. At the end of the day, I do not wish to hurt anyone I love, and helping the feelings of people in pain is something that matters to me. Giving does make me happy, but I have to find a balance to ensure that I am getting some quality time for myself and my own needs.

Sagittarius by Katie Maasik

(November 22-December 21)

There’s a part of me that can’t be stopped, that won’t be stopped—I need to keep going! I am strong emotionally, and don’t let a lot of things keep me in a sour space for too long. A lot of small things can irk me, but I try to find a way out of it. I do look for that loveable escape wherever I can find it. I find it easier to get up and walk away. The Fall is a great time for the Sagittarius to nuzzle their way back into routine, and draw back attention to the things and people they are committed to. Sagittarius loves to contribute and do a good job, but they also love to see and do, and have to ensure that they find a balance between their destiny and their desire. Now is the time to make that change, or go forward with what has been holding you back and needs improvement. I work to make it happen and put my mind towards everything that I accomplish. Sagittarius will tolerate having the things that they want, but there is a part of them that wants it go bad, and they need to go full force into the Fall wanting it and demanding it. Some of you have been waiting too long, and now is the time to really seize the moment!

Capricorn by Katie Maasik

(December 22- January 19)

It is important for me to be succeeding in order to feel like a success. When I am not succeeding it puts me in a bad place with myself because I put the pressure to accomplish upon myself. I work hard because I want results, but I have to learn that it is OK if I don’t always get them, especially when I really need to. I’ve been wanting to see a change in my life for some time now (many of you have already began to see it), and I feel this is a good time to start working away at it slowly. I know I can’t go into anything feet first, I know I have to give myself life and be pragmatic. I know I have to be ready. I like to know that I played a part in helping myself solve my own problems. I don’t really like to ask for help, but I will also say that I will try to learn to ask for it more. I want to stay a float, and I know that I can do this, and that it will require a lot of positive thinking. I work hard, it’s in my blood, I wouldn’t feel natural if I wasn’t working away at something—it does make me happy! I have to learn to expect ups and downs, and know that my hard work will pay off as long as I keep up a level of consistency. There is an ability for me to let loose and I need to embrace that side of myself right now. I can’t handle too much clutter, but when things are simple and relaxed, I can enjoy myself. I will make more room for leisure as I know that I need to unwind and enjoy these last moments of summer.

Aquarius by Katie Maasik

(January 19-Fenurary 18)

I know I have the ability to get past pretty much anything (even if there were times that I questioned this), it seems no matter the weather or season, I keep going. I don’t like to stop. Quitting is not often in my nature. I do believe in second chances. I do get hurt, I have been hurt, and things do bother me, but I often see that there is more, always more—something more is always waiting for me! I know that there is more to reach for, more to strive for, more to live for, more to experience, and more to try and do. I know that if one ship sails opposite of my direction that another ship will come to me, and it’s that thrill that keeps me going, keeps me digging, meeting new people, working hard, travelling and making new friends. This thing we call ‘life’ can be really exciting (it’s what you make of it), and when you let soak you in. When you’re doing this, you can learn the most valuable lessons possible. You can learn to walk in someone’s shoes. I want to hear other people’s stories and share my own. I truly want to make a difference in this world. I want to be able to say that I can see the good in everyone, and I really do try to exercise this notion in my daily life! This Fall I will keep an open mind and an open heart to all of the experiences that lay before me!

Pisces by Katie Maasik

(February19-March 20)

I know my intentions are always in the right place, it’s just that sometimes I am unaware of my surroundings. I don’t mean to be, but I am prone to escaping and reverting into the dream world. I am hell-bent on knowing that one of my dreams will come true. Even if they don’t, I will continue to dream big, but I know that I need to put in the work, and not put things off till last minute. Like any Water sign, I have my ever-changing moods, and I have my difficult moments, but I don’t like to be a mean person. I feel badly afterwards. I’d like to think that I am a kind person. I want to say hello more (even if I do have a shy side) and treat people with the respect I’d like to receive. I do believe, that it is better to kill them with kindness. I know that it is up to me, and the disposition that I choose to exude. Mercury in Retrograde is dangerous as Pisces can put their foot in their mouth when they are dissing out their empathic honesty. Try to refrain from reacting, hold back and see what comes your way. You will be pleasantly surprised as 2016 was coined as a promising time for The Fish, and things can only get better from here. The Fall, I am going to start something new and commit to doing something that’s just for me and my passions. Sometimes I get boggled down by relationships that aren’t mutually beneficial. I want to be a part of something that makes me smile, and I am done giving too many chances to the wrong people. I think it is best if I stick to what I know best, keep trying to learn and develop, but perhaps keep some of my inner truth to myself. I will find a way to utilize my perception, which won’t harm my interpersonal relationships and will benefit me in the long run!
