Spirits Haunt Under the Pisces Moon
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). According to the lore of Samhain, the dead roam the earth today. But it's not just the dead looming large in your memory. It's exes and others you haven't seen in a while, and they'll want to get in touch with you, too.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There's a wider range of being than the one we normally experience in typical society on a daily basis. Being a monster, president or mythical creature for a time will actually change who you are when you go back to normal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are very intrigued by the idea that the dead have something to share with you. Indeed, they have already shared so much. All you have to do is remember or notice to have a spiritual experience on this day of haunting spirits.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 31). You are like a ninja this solar return -- stealth and focused. Whatever is thrown in your path or directed at you, you'll turn it to your advantage. The next 10 weeks will star love. A mentor will help you to take your work to greater depths and more lucrative places as well. You'll help family thrive in February. Virgo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 9, 1, 39 and 6.
HALLOWEEN BY ELEMENT: The WATER SIGNS (that's Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces) tend to enjoy this macabre holiday the most, as they appreciate the deeper spiritual and psychological implications. We're born; we live; we die. Halloween celebrates that cycle by acknowledging the last act in a way we usually try not to in day-to-day life.
AIR SIGNS (Gemini, Aquarius and Libra) prefer to gloss over the deadly aspects of Halloween and focus on the social possibilities. These signs are all about the parties and fun. They may even prefer the preparation to the actual night: putting up decorations, creating costumes, discussing spooky plans, etc. The focus is on enjoying friends and loved ones.
For EARTH SIGNS (Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo) it's about the food. Not just the candy (though a good deal of thought may go into the decision of what to pass out to trick-or-treaters) but also the planning of interesting, festive party food, seasonal delights and the like. The sense of community and trust that goes into the trick-or-treat tradition is also a strong focus.
FIRE SIGNS (Leo, Sagittarius and Aries) are compelled by the theatricality of Halloween. Constructing adrenaline-rushing scenarios and memory-making experiences is their favorite part of the deal. Also, fire signs are voted the most likely to wear surprisingly sexy costumes.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Titan of fantasy, Peter Jackson is an imaginative soul born under a charismatic Scorpio sun with a natal moon in entertaining Leo. Jackson has Mercury and Venus in Libra, the sign of relationships, indicating a wondrous talent for choosing creative partners. Many Hollywood heavy-hitters are involved in his upcoming work "The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun," based on the comic book series.
