Horrorscopes for December 2013
by Zack Kouns
Aries (March 21-April 19) Two earths and your hands in the water. When the water is still, you see yourself as you believe you are and when you trouble the surface, you see yourself as you truly are: eternal and ageless.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Rain causes deluge and your children drown. They come to you in a dream and whisper to you softly about the world that doesn't end.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) In the longsuffering seventh hour of the night, you no longer resist the strangling animals of pain and so pain leaves you and you're left to mourn and comprehend the loss and fill it's absence with the immutable strains of harvesting and being harvested.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Sparrows and clay. Working in the fields, silent fruits of an endlessly blooming vine.
Leo (July 23-August 22) You swallow your teeth and glass from broken windows. Crouching in an abandoned building, begging for your suffering to cease while you tear your flesh with nails. Intercession is salvation.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) District and gnashing of teeth. In the bottom of a well, thirsting and hearing music from a far off festival.
Libra (September 23-October 23) Collapse at our table after your long journey through the desert. You have been given vinegar to drink, dirt to eat and ice to warm you. We offer the Word of Life, which promises a different sort of Hunger and the insight to find the repose you've sought in that Hunger.
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) Wheat and barley in the thrasher. Children standing on a distant hill waving toward a white winter sky and the ancient wind from the south stirs to awakens innocence in you and you begin to bear its solitude.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Wombs, women taken in adultery. Redemption, endless and oceanic.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Circles of flames awakened by Hands that move unseen raze and cleanse the beasts of violence in you that had stayed hidden because you feared them and you lost your capacity for violence that you didn't even know you had.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Mother and father have died in a car crash. Now you weep, because they stand next to you in a small dwelling made of clay while sunlight pours through the windows and a simple meal cools on an old wooden table.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Sunlight makes shadows of the bars of the cage and the dress of a woman in love. Dirt and tongue in mouth. Static and unknown voices calling toward morning and its ancient land.
