October Horror-Scopes

SUMMER SLOTNICK-LASTRICO

Opinion Editor

Please note: While a thirteenth sign, Ophiuchus, was rumored to be “discovered” by NASA (this statement has since been proven incorrect), most newspapers do not include it in their horoscopes. In order to uphold the respectability of the King’s Page and our Royals, we shall not include this additional zodiac sign in our paper. Only the standard twelve will be included in our horoscopes below.

Libra (September 24–October 23): You’ve got a whole lot to celebrate this month besides your birthday, Libra. Between changes in your finances and a break from a few pressing issues in your social life, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with your luck in October (even if things are a little batty right now). Take stock of this rest period and good fortune by working on your past endeavors. Even if you take tiny steps, you will thank yourself for not putting progress off. Either way, don’t start anything new after the 22nd—Mercury retrograde could wreck it all.

Scorpio (October 24–November 22): You might feel a little like a vampire sucked all the energy out of you right now. Not to worry, Scorpio, because your birthday month is fast approaching. While you are waiting, make sure you take care of yourself. If you’ve been depriving yourself of Halloween candy until October 31, go ahead and crack the bag open a little early. Or, if your eating habits haven’t been so healthy, do yourself a favor and search up a HIIT workout online to do—any self-care you have time for now will behoove you in November.

Sagittarius (November 23–December 21): You’ve always been a ray of sunshine, Sagittarius, and since your friends and teammates have been acting like zombies recently, they’re counting on you this month for a bit of encouragement. That being said, don’t pile everything onto your own plate. If you need help, seek it out and leave well enough alone. After October 27, you will meet a few new friends, which will prove to be a wonderful opportunity to gain a new outlook on life. The end of the month will be a time of renewal in all aspects of your life.

Capricorn (December 22–January 20): Did someone ghost you recently, Capricorn? (You know who.) Not to worry, this month calls for a true boo for you! October brings new beginnings and plenty of excitement to your sign, so take advantage of the good vibes while you still can. Next month, you will need to focus on academic and career goals, and you might have to take some time away from your partner to do so. Try establishing a steady, fun routine you both can keep up with, even when you are pressed for time, so things don’t fizzle out.

Aquarius (January 21–February 19): Keep a close eye on your academic and professional responsibilities this month. We know, Aquarius, you aren’t one for spontaneity. But if you aren’t careful, the playfulness coming to your sign this month could bring something spookier and scarier than skeletons—a bad reputation. So even though you’ll be feeling assertive and confident this October, channel it into something other than a petition for your favorite show on Netflix to get another season. Snap a selfie instead and send it to a close friend you trust.

Pisces (February 20–March 20): The gossip coming your way in October will be sizzling hot, Pisces, tempting you to join in. It’s imperative that you stay alert, especially on October 27, so as not to reveal something about yourself that you might regret. Towards the end of the month, you may encounter some demons from your past to deal with. Whether these are metaphorical or literal all depends on how you dealt with the past few months. Have you been the kindest to your friends and family lately; if so, how about your enemies and frenemies?

Aries (March 21–April 20): Try not to act like the Headless Horseman this month, Aries, and instead keep your head on straight. Yes, you will have some career struggles in October, and yes, they will prove frustrating, but not to fear—everything will sort itself out around the 27th. As your success starts to ramp up, you may have to briefly put off romantic endeavors. Love will come in November, but in order for everything to go well, you’ll need to be prepared. Be sure to tie off any loose ends in your life now so that you’ll be all set for takeoff.

Taurus (April 21–May 20): While you may not go so far as calling  your “mummy” for assistance this October, Taurus, it may be time to make a few healthy quits in your life, so you can find some balance. It’ll be a new day and a new dawn for you come Halloween, so get ready to be the center of attention when your time comes. Have you been itching to unleash your creativity? Or do you want to pitch that million-dollar idea to a friend or colleague? If so, save it for the end of the month, as it will almost certainly be received well, by then.

Gemini (May 21–June 21): This month will be a wild ride, Gemini. With the indecision and disorganized energy you’ll be facing, particularly by the 22nd, you may feel as if you’ve been struck by a nasty curse from the Wicked Witch of the Zodiac. Don’t despair, though, as you’ll be getting some decisive responses to questions you may have struggled with all year ( whether directly or indirectly), by October’s end. Keep your patience and hunker down until then. Next month will add on to this clarifying trend, helping to solve a big mystery in your life.

Cancer (June 22–July 22): Stay home? Yes, we know you’ve heard that ever since the COVID-19 pandemic came about, but you’ll become a champion of doing so this month. Staying home doesn’t have to mean staying bored, though! Cling to the happy and enthusiastic vibes coming your way around the 22nd, and ignore that one person who howls for your attention this October—you don’t have to be part of their wolf pack no matter how much their threats get to you. And in terms of celebration, think pumpkin-spiced everything: perhaps, a perfect pick-me-up.

Leo (July 23–August 23): The motto for this month is to trust your gut instincts and focus on your own state of mind, Leo. Feeling like being productive and tidying up this October? Great—just don’t force it on others, especially those close to you. Want to seize on the surprise door opening up for you near October’s end? You do you; the point is, make sure you’re not spreading yourself too thin, and if you have to, slam the brakes—this could be a very important move for you depending on how monstrous your career looks post-Halloween.

Virgo (August 24–September 23): October brings some serious drama for you, Virgo (we know, just when you needed some reprieve!). And watch out—if you’re not careful, a creepy-crawly person from your past could come scuttling back into your midst and bite you in the back. Don’t fret, however—despite all the bad news, this month will actually be a pretty nice one, particularly around Halloween. You’ll feel better right away and even pumped-up enough for some thrill-seeking, whether virtually or socially distanced—skydiving anyone?
