Horrorscopes for January 2016
by Zack Kouns

Aries (March 21-April 19) - I want an uncreated and unfathomable God stirring in the wilds of Eternity. I want an intimate and familiar God, as sensual as the earth after a rain.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Everyone who’s ever been alive is there. No one swimming or fighting the tide.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) - Leaves, shoots, seeds and roots. Yarrow. Burdock. Motherwort. Damiana. Nettle. Aloe. Leaves, shoots, seeds and roots.

Cancer (June 22-July 22) - They asked me to perform miracles. I laid them in the dirt. I laid my hands on them. I believed. I called them from their death.

Leo (July 23-August 22) - Climb to where the trail ends. There’s a small boy crying on a crag. There’s no small boy there. The sorrow in your self is no longer there. And now you’re on the pathless path with no destination.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) - Delight celebrates the shuddering beauty of everything that is. Delight revels in exaltation! Delight does not need to possess or harness or profit or name. Delight is our true estate.

Libra (September 23-October 23) - Man stands with his back to us with his hands toward the sky. The gesture he’s making has the intensity of movement of something that has great meaning but is beyond our understanding. Thunder and lightning and violent storm.

Scorpio (October 24-November 21) - A nude woman chasing dead animals through a large, wooden empty room. Flowers shivering in the lamp light.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) - Always, new lands to explore, new languages to be spoken to express the inexpressible. Silence seems to be the closest approximate, so I’ll grow as quiet as an old growth forest and we can wonder together.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) - If you’re starving to death and You’re not your hunger and you’re shuddering with thirst and You’re not thirsty, then who are You? Find out quickly, we need You.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) - Walk along the narrow mountain path. There is a man killing another man. Close your eyes. Open them. Now they’re both gone. They were your violence and now they’re both gone. Awaken to never ending life.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) - Your naked body in the shower. The sound snow makes when it's crushed under foot. Washing your hair in the train station bathroom. Your head flung back, appearing to be in a state of profound ecstasy. Tangles of hair knotted on your slender back.
