Horrorscopes for November 2015
by Zack Kouns
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Blind old man in an alleyway playing an out of town fiddle and screaming at dogs. He knows everything that’s happened to you and he wants to tell about it so you can forgive everyone and everyone can forgive you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -
God takes care of all us dying animals by flooding us with His joy when the last of our crops have died and we’re eating so soaked with year old rain.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) -
A long time ago someone told you that you were seperate from God. You believed them and now you're laying in the ashes and ruin in torn clothes wondering if everything you've been told is true, how is it that you're here right now with those huge, wild dreams of indistinctness.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -
What flows through the water in your stream? Yellowing pine needles, crooked branches from an ailing hickory tree, streaks of mud that the rain planted there? Swim to the depths and stir the sediment, set loose the ancient, ageless things that have lodged there and long to flow free.
Leo (July 23-August 22) -
Somehow apart from the Source you're derived from. A mouthpiece of a valveless brass instrument instead of a hearing trumpet. Listening. And then somewhere off in the distance there's the bell that calls you home.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) -
What warmth from what Sun makes the rotten fruit fresh again? Don't look with your eyes. Don't hear with your ears. Find that Celestial Body whirling in the early evening sky and follow It's path to the luminous field where nothing can end.
Libra (September 23-October 23) -
What sort of lover are you? How do we begin to measure something that is beyond measure? Why not start with the seed that becomes a forest? Then that would be everyone and everything (and the Whispering Voice breathing breath) and you don't think you're capable of that sort of Beauty, do you?
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) -
A splintered Red Bud branch lying on the forest floor in winter bursts into bloom. How is this? It stopped believing that it was a broken branch and realized what It really was.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) -
Help me to say the Word that surpasses words. Help me to hear the silent Voice that speaks through everything that is alive. Once we begin to view the world in this way, there are the unmistakable traces of creation in every atom and molecule and there is an inherent Dignity in everything that's been created.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) -
Since your favorite word is "away", now it's time to investigate where you've been and where you've came from. Who knows the answer to these sorts of questions? Ask the blade of grass and the drop of water, they journey from a more perfect stillness. Above all, stillness knows.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) -
Tavener's "As One Who Has Slept" plays softly in a dark room. In the center of this room there is a deep well. The scent of jasmine and Longing pours forth and you dive into the well to discover the root of that unsurpassed loveliness. Spiraling forest, the paths of Man.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) -
Tell us what it's like where You live. Tell us true stories of Lovers disappearing one into the other. Minerals climbing into plants and making them Live, is this you?
"Where you are, I am. Climb out from behind the burning bush and take off your shoes, because you're always standing on Holy ground."
