Hallowe’en Horoscopes Oct. 31-Nov. 7

E-mail Print

Firstly, HAPPY SPOOKY TIME!!! Here I sit, staring at these zodiacal glyphs and planetary symbols, pondering metaphor, the day of my birth and Hallowe'en while listening to Tom Waits' ‘A Little Rain (for Clyde)'. You can youtube it, it's really lovely. The day is settling in slowly and will be over before we know it, but there does seem to be a comfort about this particular holiday. No matter what you're dressed like, no one can judge you for it.

Almost as if we can all be just a little more like ourselves, even if it's just by wearing a costume or a mask and at least, acknowledging it. Let's see what the stars have to say.

The recent environments as of late, with Venus, Mercury and the Sun in Scorpio, will be changing, becoming a little less intense come Wednesday. The last two weeks have been on the crazier side of things. Actually, we see a shift where all three of these planets happen to move into the next sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius.

The act of even the subject of travel will be of significance to key people, especially Sagittarians. This movement puts the focus on discovering the art, philosophy and religion of communication, love and self-identity for November and most of December.

As for the Hallowe'en astrological weather... I remember a similar Hallowe'en to this a few years back. We can look forward to an extremely socially active holiday, with emphasis on the extreme. The subject or example of taboos may arise, like sexuality, religion, death, racism, anything generally not spoken of commonly. We must watch for excesses and going overboard which really, isn't too far off any Hallowe'en but especially with this many planets in Scorpio; word to the wise, keep this well in mind.

This isn't a generalization, after all, I'm not saying Hallowe'en will be mellower than usual or that it will be full of spontaneousness, no. I am saying it will be intense, magnetic, full of debauchery and excess MORE than usual and to watch your prospective, collective asses. Kosher? Wait, this isn't Chanukah.
Please remember to read your Moon sign, especially if you were born at night though this applies for everyone, and your rising sign (or ascendent) for a broader, more accurate forecast.

Aries - Kitty Costume

March 21 - 23 to April 20 - 23
Your creative, spontaneous energies may be stifled right now so be aware of this. The lion in you comes out to prowl the freaky concrete jungle of either your home, work or the party-life, in that you're outwardly feeling pride, at the very least, if other energies are depleted. Embrace that. Let's hear you roar, or purr, perhaps.

Taurus - Under Your Skin

April 21 - 23 to  May 20- 23
The intense energies of your opposite sign, Scorpio, may be getting to you a little, and perhaps you're feeling the strain. You may either be taken home or take someone home, but either way, something hits close to the home front, somehow. Take that how you will, it will manifest in your consciousness and outwardly so, anyway, whether you see it or not.

Gemini - Grabby Ghouls

May 21-23 to June 20-23

You may be considering your possessions at this time, and how this affects who you are as a person. Perhaps many Geminian personalities are contemplating moving in with a significant other, or how close their friends are but certainly, there should be some thought on possession and ownership. Watch what's yours and what's theirs, how generous you are and how willing you are to integrate.

Cancer - The Time Traveller
June 21-23 to July 20-23
A crescent waxing Moon in Capricorn this Hallowe'en has you feeling rather conflicted and of course, feelings are tumultuous.

Don't be surprised if you find yourself reflecting or being faced directly with issues from your past. Your 'roots' come into question and what has grown from them, your history somehow coming into focus, as if it were more present than it seems.

Leo - Nightmares and Dreams
July 21- 23 to Aug. 20- 23
Planning on being more social than you regularly are? Like with Pisces, some of your only outlets right now lay in becoming extremely creative, in order to relate to others.

At the moment, your head may be up in the clouds or pondering how to relate to others. Maybe you're feeling slightly alone or perhaps very surrounded by people, but these types of things on your plate. Think about it. Dream about it.

Virgo - Yar Be A Pirate

Aug. 21-24 to Sept. 21 -23
Heading toward a time of being more social than you're used to and perhaps, prone to spitting more insightful rhymes than usual. You're not exactly most comfortable situated in this buzz, zap and crackle of intensity filling the air, but you may kinda like it... Just don't lose your head with going over board, matey. Chill.

Libra - Terror Filled

Sept. 21 - 23 to Oct. 21- 23
Karma, karma, karma. It's all about the going around and the coming around and for you in particular, the school of hard knocks.

Don't push it and learn to temper your jealousy, at this time, more than anything else. Remember, when you come across as spiteful and hateful, it translates to others as, “My, what lovely insecurities you have!’ Judge others less, the stars said so.

You'll find your balance, though, but do it quick. The forces that help you will only be on your side for so long.

Scorpio - Mighty Morphin' Power Stinger

Oct. 21-23 Nov. 21-23
You're in the middle of a time of significant personal power; A key word for you.
Three planets inhabit the great metaphysical halls of Scorpius. The very pull of the constellation hailing you on, spurring and inspiring solemness, a calm and cool sense of mystery and even a sense of self-control.

Sagittarius - Up and Coming Guru

Nov. 20-23 Dec. 20-23

You can feel the energy building but don't let the season or holiday fool you, it's not just Hallowe'en. You are approaching a time of great personal power, and still, Jupiter backs you up. That's like having the bouncer at the bar back you up, or the professor at the institute or the martial arts guru kick someone's ass for you, or better yet, teach you how to do it yourself.

Capricorn - The Cross Roads

Dec. 20-23 to Jan. 18-21

The waxing quarter Moon in your sign, Hallowe'en should be a definite cross roads for you. Beware of ego, Capricorn soul, and the keeping of superficial and capricious friends; You, more than others, mark my words. But the moon gives you power, so tap into your feelings, though I know that's not easy for you, is it?

You're feeling a little extra uptight, lately and you really aught to loosen up. Don't shoot the messenger.

Aquarius - Specifications of the Mad Scientist

Jan. 18-21 to Feb. 18- 21

You're all about trying to get your priorities straight. If you're not, you should be. Aries being in retrograde with your planet, Uranus, it's no small challenge so hopefully, you're up for it. This could be said for anyone but making lists, shaping up what you need to do, for you, right now is more important than the myriad of issues we'll be focusing on with other signs. I am being very specific.

Pisces - The Odd and the Mer-God

Feb. 18 -21 March 18- 21
I have said it once and I will reiterate it, again; Your strange and odd mer-God and planet Neptune is paired up with Aquarius in the fifth house. This means that your good juju comes from strange, weird and unorthodox creativity. If it's out of place, spoken unconventionally and completely random, you'll hit the sweet spot.
