Horrorscopes for October 2015
by Zack Kouns

Aries (March 21-April 19) - Become acquainted with the God that you’re orbiting so that you can discover the truth: that you’re a graceful, finite expression of His endlessness.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Walking barefoot in the snow. Drinking water from a muddy creek. Following the huge veering Footprints on the jagged, narrow path that finally leads Home.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) - It’s Your longing that has made you so tender. If you’d been given your desire you’d have never claimed the noble birthright that was crafted for You alone.

Cancer (June 22-July 22) - A deer rustles in the early morning and rises innocently to eat the leaves from a blackberry bush. It doesn’t seem to mind the thorns. It doesn’t seem to mind that the berries have withered in the sun. What does the deer have to teach you?

Leo (July 23-August 22) - These are the constellations whirling through the thick, porous veins in your hands. They aren’t hidden even though you’ve never noticed them. You believe that your hands are reaching out to get smacked with a stick, instead they’re feeling around in the dark for the Embrace of the Seed of planets and the Root of the solar systems inside and outside your immense, tiny body.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) - In the tempest, a man in a dark blue shirt stands on the shore and quietly mouths his prayers to the drowning God. He takes off his shoes and walks on the water like a wild animal that has escaped the trap that was set for it. We rescue God and ourselves and each other with our Love and our Hope and the miraculous, dangerous risk of our Faith in the beauty of life.

Libra (September 23-October 23) - The way all things are shaped. The way that the rocky cliff forever staring out at the sea is formed by the lashing waves and surrenders and caresses them as they fold in on themselves to gather the strength necessary to continue carving their hieroglyphs into the stone. Isn’t all of our truest work done like this? Patiently. Lovingly. No thoughts of reward.

Scorpio (October 24-November 21) - Empty your cup, toss the dinner from your bowl into the sand and let the dogs and birds and insects feast. Only in this way will you find out what you’ve really been hungering and thirsting for.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) - Draw the cool, clear water of the stream up to your face. Mirrored by all Things. Always belonging.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) - What is It that you tend to carry around with you wherever you go? The ripening of a seed, the yellowing of a leaf, the motionlessness of a rock and the abandon of a meteor hurtling through space.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) - Sprawling wildflowers and tall grass shivering in the first frost of Autumn. Everything beginning, ending and beginning again so faithfully.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) - Your Beloved walking toward you. You can see Her off in the distance trudging through the meadow grass and although She’s far off and you can’t see Her face but you’ll know who She is when She shows up at your door.
