Horrorscopes for January 2014
by Zack Kouns
Aries (March 21-April 19) Oars of the boat dipping into a sea that's never been sailed.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Oaths of birds, throbbing calls that announce the endlessness of something hidden in all of us.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) Pestilence is at the door of your home in the rags of a beggar, starving and longing for your sickness and finding none to claim.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) A sea unvintaged, bereft of life and barren as the womb of your wife who drowned in the Apalachicola river in 1974. Sorrow and love.
Leo (July 23-August 22) A king from a distant country has sent you a sealed letter and you sit down to read it by a fire that is rising to devour your home and the ways you've lived in this world and the halls of a life that you can't understand becomes the place where you quietly dwell.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Animals suffering blindly without meaning or purpose and summers that don't bear fruit.
Libra (September 23-October 23) Whisper, quiet myth of violence. At the beginning of a thing is its end and tall stands of pine against a white sky.
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) Once you sensed hidden worlds and so the physical organs of sight has cost you a great deal.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Vineyards vineyards VINEYARDS
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Two horses circling one another in a meadow fog. A spruce bush not more than four years old, ravaged by the wind.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) After a long, painful voyage, you've discovered the mixture and its separation inside your trembling body.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Squatting on a dirty floor, you find a woman who you love bearing a son and you gently kiss her on the lips without artifice or concealment.
