October Horrorscopes, Crossword, and Comic!

by Miriam Sossin


Life can seem like a haunted house, but don’t fret! Now is the time to face your fears, slap the mummy that pops out of the closet in the face, march through the fake spider webs, and collect that candy at the end like a boss.

BIRTHDAY: If your birthday is today, October 17th, then you have the same birthday as Eminem! Are you the real slim shady?

LIBRA (sept. 23-oct. 22): Hey vampires! Take this month to not look in the mirror so much, you look fine! Not a day over 2310! Besides, you can’t anyway.

SCORPIO (oct. 23-nov. 21): Ah Pumpkins. You’re gorgeous, orange, unique, and this is your season! Trust yourself and just keep doin’ you.

SAGITTARIUS (nov. 22-dec. 21) : BOO! Ha, Gotcha. Get better reflexes. Pay more attention this month.

CAPRICORN (dec.22-jan. 19): Aaaaaoooooouuuuuu! Oh, hey werewolf, this fall is yours to take! Go crazy this Halloween, but not too crazy, don’t want to repeat the clawing incident of 07’.

AQUARIUS (jan. 20-feb. 18): Take this month to treat yourself! Life’s too full of tricks anyway.

PISCES (feb. 19-mar. 19) : Stop being superstitious! Be EXTREMELY stitious!!! It’s a scary time and you never know...

ARIES (mar. 20-apr. 18): Wassup ghosts. Try to have more of a presence this month, I know you’re transparent and all but it’s no excuse.

TAURUS (apr. 19- may 20): You’re confused! You think all of this halloween stuff is Taurusshit! Watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I promise so many things will fall into place.

GEMINI (may 21-june 20): HEY WITCH! Work your magic this month, whether it’s a love potion or a levitation spell. Don’t forget to take breaks, double double toil and bubble baths!

CANCER (june 21- july 22): Just because you’re Frankenstein's monster doesn’t mean you have to be monstrous! Shock people this month, go against their expectations. Yes you were built in a lab but you can still choose your own destiny.

LEO (july 23- aug. 22): LISTEN UP LIONS. It’s time to grow up, I know you’re not into the spooky stuff but at least be a vampire lion this year. I mean come on.

VIRGO (aug. 23-sept. 22): I know you usually just judge other people’s costumes, but this year try your own! Be an athlete, a lifeguard, a fish, a coffee! Get out of your comfort zone this month!
