October Horrorscopes 2017

Important dates:  Sukkoth and Harvest Moon on the 5th, Columbus Day on the 9th, United Nations’ Day 24th and Orionids meteor showers on the 24th and Halloween/Samhain on the 31st.

Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.

Also called:  Samhuinn/Samhainn (Scottish Gaelic); Sauin (Manx Gaelic).

Celebrations:  Bonfires, guising/mumming, divination, feasting, trick or treating.

Significance: End of the harvest season, beginning of winter. 

As millions of children and adults participate in the fun of Halloween on the night of October 31st, few will be aware of its ancient Celtic roots in the Samhain (Samain) festival. In Celtic Ireland about 2,000 years ago, Samhain was the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter). At Samhain, the division between this world and the other world was at its thinnest, allowing spirits to pass through.

The family’s ancestors were honored and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. People wore costumes and masks to disguise themselves as harmful spirits and thus avoid harm. Bonfires and food played a large part in the festivities. The bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into a communal fire, household fires were extinguished and started again from the bonfire. Food was prepared for the living and the dead, food for the ancestors who were in no position to eat it, was ritually shared with the less well off.

Christianity incorporated the honoring of the dead into the Christian calendar with All Saints (All Hallows) on November 1st, followed by All Souls on November 2nd. The wearing of costumes and masks to ward off harmful spirits survived as Halloween customs. The Irish emigrated to America in great numbers during the 19th century especially around the time of potato famine in Ireland during the 1840’s. The Irish carried their Halloween traditions to America, where today it is one of the major holidays of the year. Other traditions through time have blended into Halloween, for example the American harvest time tradition of carving pumpkins.*

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Some personal changes seem to be on the horizon as well.  You are thinking with more determination and showing more persistence in what you want to do. You are taking the bull by the horns and doing what you feel is right for you.  The work place needs to be more nurturing as it is currently a place of stress, exhaustion and never-ending tasks and responsibilities.  It would be in your best interest if you could rest more, go out with friends or family, and have a good time. Home life may bring some unexpected changes which will take you by surprise.  In the end, these are good changes which push you into an environment or situation which is much more positive than your current circumstances.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

This is a month where you can truly have some fun with your family and friends.  Romance is also very interesting now.  Your schedule is tiresome.  You work long hours and they need to be adjusted for better health. You over do everything. Your friends may cause you some issues and as usual you have to save the day, but all in all, a good month filled with some surprises, good luck and lots of activity.  You will be going places, having guests visit your home and you may even host a Halloween party at the last minute. You don’t have to do all the cooking or entertaining.  Ask friends to bring their special gourmet dish so that everyone shares in the cooking expense.

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Getting in touch with your feminine side is important to understand why you help so many.  You are the caregiver or caretaker of your family and friends.  Focus on your goals and dreams, move towards them a little each day and before you know it, you have reached your dreams and have proved to everyone that you can do whatever it is you want to do.  Relationships seem to blossom and are progressing smoothly. Business and personal partnerships (marriage included) go in a much more positive direction; however, you may be thinking of a time to change partners in a relationship if you are bored or feel as if the oomph has left your relationship.  The choice is yours. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21
Update all important papers when you have the time. Getting your finances in order is a good thing.  Friends will get you out of the house and encourage you to have fun.  There is so much you want to accomplish, so start with one project or task at a time and soon you will have many projects done.  This is a time to show your creativity and craftsmanship with Halloween costumes for the little ones or for yourself if you go out with your friends.  This is a great time to start making presents for the December holiday gift giving season. Homemade gifts are always appreciated and remembered.

•LEO – July 22 – August 21
Dealing with women can be interesting as it seems that arguing is eminent.  Be careful of your words because you apparently annoy some of the women in your life.  It’s a good time to travel or continue with your studies towards a degree or certification.  This is an amazing time to buckle down and study hard as the rewards will be greater than you thought.  It’s also a time where your philosophies of life may change, whether religious, spiritual or mundane; you are looking at life from many different perspectives.  Ideas that you thought you believed may surprise you and you seem to be turning towards another belief or point of view.

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21
You need to change something important in your life. Be direct, get answers, change what needs to be changed and move forward in a very positive manner.  Everything is before you now, so handle those responsibilities and deliver on your promises to others. Your career is interesting and challenging at the same time.  You are interested in furthering your career, but are unsure if it will be in the same field or with the same company.  The options are all around you and you will do well in either your current company or finding employment elsewhere.  Your contribution to either will be beneficial.  You have ambition now and do not want to be at the bottom of the ladder. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

This is a month where you shine in almost everything you do.  Librans are feeling a sense of total accomplishment.  Even though many recent changes have made you take another path, this is a good thing.  You will be self-sufficient and learn how to make good decisions for yourself now.  You are happy, feel confident and your self-esteem level is at an all-time high.  You are pursuing things that you left on the back burner for too long and getting so many things done. Thinking about travel, fun, doing things differently and making important decisions are all on your mind.

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20
Friends, groups and associations are important now as well as getting to know who your true friends are and who are the ones who use you on a regular basis.  Even though many of the changes in your life the last couple of months are of your doing, things are still a bit confused and unsettled.  Big changes take a long time to get used to and to work properly.  Helping out your family and friends seem to be your never-ending lot in life, but at some point, you need to take care of yourself.  You may experience a bit of sadness or depression since you feel that you have trusted so many around you and find out that there have been a few betrayals.  You will bounce back because you do have so many other wonderful people in your life who truly love and care for you.

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

What a great month to reinvent yourself.  Get a makeover, or perhaps a new hair cut or color.  It doesn’t have to be a party for anything in particular, but just have the people around you who mean a lot to you. It’s a great time to catch up and find out what has been going on in everyone’s lives. So many positive changes are coming your way within your home life and/or career. For you snowbirds, it’s time to get everything organized and focused for your six- month trek down South for the winter.  You feel refreshed and exuberant about your life and want others to share the joy you feel at this time.  Have a party to show how much you appreciate your family and friends.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family relationships improve as long as you don’t talk about money. Sibling relationships in particular start to take on a new, closer direction.  A lot of good fortune and luck will be available to you now, so it would be good if you planned in which areas of your life you will take a chance, move forward or change something that isn’t quite right.  Getting expert opinions about how to make your money grow would be a positive step to ensuring your future financial security.  Figuring out what you can and cannot do would be an important step to realizing how you can live your life without draining your resources.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

Family is important now.  Helping out where you can is very much appreciated. Being drained is not going to help you achieve your goals.  Limit the amount of time you talk to those who really need your help as they are draining the life out of you. Being tired at work is unacceptable and will make your performance on the job mediocre, so you do need to get a good night’s sleep.  Let your troubles and negative thoughts leave you when it is bedtime.  You are always there for the underdog anyway or ready to help a family member with any issue or concern that comes their way.  Be sure that you also take care of yourself as well.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19
What a wonderful time to start an art or music class. You seem to be very artistic and creative, so whatever you feel are your strengths should now be recognized and nurtured.  You have unbelievable talent in many areas, but you need to focus that energy on finding out what your passion is so you will always enjoy what you create.  Teaching others your creative gifts would be a blessing to so many. Things may not always be the way they seem.  You are being drawn into obscure and bizarre circumstances with family, friends and neighbors.  It is up to you to make sure that everyone is on the same page or at the very least sees reality in these areas of conflict or difficulty.  Speak carefully to others as you may feel it is imperative to tell a fib or two and then you will get caught.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Luck is behind you if you stand firm and decide you are going to make your life more positive and happy. Consider what steps you need for a happier and healthier life and start going in that direction a little each day. You feel a bit overwhelmed and confused about your direction in life and perhaps the universe is doing you a favor by forcing you to choose and/or make some important decisions. Creativity, romance and children are all being dealt with in a positive manner.  If you are in a rut or are doing the same thing over and over again with little results, it’s no wonder that the universe is pushing you into a new direction.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

This is a great time to start new beginnings, perhaps look into buying a home instead of renting or to get a better job rather than being upset all of the time at your current one. It seems you are thinking about changing jobs because of office politics or because you feel you deserve more money.  It is about time that people give back some of the time and energy you have given them throughout the years. Health and partnerships go hand in hand this month. Pay attention to details so life can move in a forward direction. Even though times are extremely busy and confusing, there is a period where you will be lucky and things will expand beyond your dreams.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Romantic and business partnerships are on the agenda.  How do they seem to be going?  Did you need to change an aspect or two?  Handling important paperwork also makes you get more organized and prepared for what life may bring you.  You are a very busy person who may at times make more work for yourself than is necessary.  Make time for fun.  You can’t work 24 hours a day although you feel that you need to get ahead.  Try to pay off debt or at least pay things on time to avoid late charges.  You are trying to save for certain items or at the very least want to accumulate some money in the bank for financial security. The old cliché is true, “Take time to smell the roses” before they’re gone. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Higher education and your ability to understand new philosophies or religion will be tested.  You may be considering changing your major, course or school.  Take some time to book a trip to an event you’ve always wanted to attend or to a seminar or expo you think you would benefit from. Go to your local library for some free classes on subjects you’ve always wanted to study. You are curious about so many things, but don’t seem to have the time to do much about your passion to learn. Taking on-line courses may be the way to go as you can study in the comfort of your own home in your pajamas, if you wish, and with no makeup. 

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Creativity is at a high point so take advantage of this energy and passion.  Be sure whatever you get involved in is legal, thought through and that you are not living in denial.  This is also a time where you may feel that things couldn’t get more confusing or crazy, but you are wrong!  Life is exciting now with many new positive opportunities for you to grab if you are ready to go onto your next big life’s adventure. Long distance travel may be important now, so if you haven’t taken the trip you wanted to over the summer, this may be the time.  Prices are down and the crowds are minimized.  Good luck coming to you from your career.  

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You will have a good deal of opportunities to prove to upper management that you are right for a new position.  Be on guard, everyone is watching you to see if you are worthy of a promotion or transfer which includes more money.  So many wonderful options are given to you about your future career or work-related life. You feel better about so many things in your life and really feel as if you are doing a good job with whatever you are trying to accomplish.  Your future looks bright and you have so many wonderful chances to make your life the way you truly want it, so go for it.  

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friends are important now.  They seem to bring you good luck and will help you with whichever problems or issues you have.  This is also a great time to organize and materialize your hopes, dreams and wishes.  You take on too much and one of these days you will finally understand that others need to help you for a change and that you don’t always have to be the one to volunteer or take care of others. This is a time for you to handle your own responsibilities and to work hard to reach your goals.  Make sure you also take care of yourself by resting regularly.  You also seem to be very sensitive and have too much on your mind.  Instead of saying, “No, thanks, I can do it myself,” you are now going to say, “Yes, thank you.”  

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

There seems to be a lot of responsibilities on your shoulders and you are getting a bit angrier about not having the help you should from family.  You are ready for some changes in your life, but you have to find the areas of life you want changed and then do something about it.  It just won’t happen on its own. You may be just a little harder to get along with than usual because you have so much on your mind that you are not thinking about winning a popularity contest as well.  Life may throw you some curve balls, but you’ve been down this road before and know how to handle stress and responsibilities.  This is no different other than you will be stronger and more dedicated to getting what you want as you feel it is your turn to shine. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Take a new course, enjoy a lecture or teach a class in which you have an expertise.  Many changes are coming in the way you view yourself and your life.  You are coming out of your shell to meet the world and see what it has to offer.  The difficult times seem to be a thing of the past.  Money issues continue to on your mind so deal with personal finances as quickly as possible.  They keep you busy.  Deal with the issues that need your immediate attention and let the other issues stay on the back burner for now.  Remember that your projects are the most important even though you wish to help others.  Time management is imperative now if you want to accomplish everything. Writing or artistic projects take the center stage.  

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Dealing with finances is a good thing.  You are making your financial decisions more logically and analytically than ever before.  Get everything in order once and for all.  Things lying around the house aren’t helping you to plan a bright new future.  Financial issues need to be addressed and if you decide that money has to be moved into something safer, or if you wish to save more, and spend less, etc., this is the time you need to do it.  Your dreams are being manifested easily so you may wish to be sure what you want in your life before you start attracting things that may not be in your best interest.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

This is a time for you to enjoy your life and not stress over the small stuff, so just let things go that don’t need to be in your life.  If work isn’t going your way, it may be time to look for something else to do for a living.  Things seem to change on a daily basis.  What a great time to sit down and write a book, in your journal or plan some short trips you have wanted to take for a very long time.  Communication with those you love is important now.  Be sure you are calm when you discuss volatile matters since you can’t take back things that you say even if you apologize for them.  This is also a time when you are running on empty.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

Work and home life seem to be at odds, but with some clever thought, you can turn life around to suit your needs.  However, it does not mean that you should stand idly by and do nothing about your own future. You know better. Creativity and artistic abilities are your friends this month.  You are perhaps redecorating your home or doing something very creative to make your home feel fantastic.  Home life starts to fall into place now.  Things that you feel you need in your life are a real possibility if you get up the initiative to follow through with plans and dreams.  Life is interesting and confusing at the same time.
