Scorpio Season Sneaks Up What each sign should be for Halloween at Grinnell and Scorpio season advice

Ms. Constellation Prize

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

The South Campus Bat: Scorpio, embrace your dark, spooky side. Nothing scares your peers more than this bat. The question remains: is there one bat terrorizing the loggia or is there a whole family residing in the walls? There’s no doubt that your desire to haunt your friends’s nightmares will be satiated with your spooky costume. Don’t be afraid of your instinct to be mischievous and chaotic. You can add some fear to someone’s day and stir the pot a little. But be careful: like the bat, stories of your mischief will permeate throughout campus.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

The Green M&M: Sagittarius, you need a group or couple’s costume this year! This month you might find yourself yearning to stay inside and hide from the world, but if you commit yourself to activities with your peers, like a group costume, you won’t be able to isolate yourself too much. Fight your instinct to be alone and try to stay social.

Green can help you reflect any envy or jealousy you might be feeling this month, particularly if you’re missing an ex-significant other or ex-friend. Don’t articulate your jealousy or negative feelings. Instead, try to channel it through creative outlets, like your outfits. 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

 Bed Sheet Ghost: Capricorn, it might feel like life is falling apart right now. Things seem to be crumbling at the seams. It might be in your best interest to hide away, like under a bed sheet. Don’t isolate yourself, but just take a step back. Don’t try to fix your life as it’s falling apart because it’s all geared towards a positive change. Something good is coming your way, but you need to sit back and let it happen. Towards the end of the month, you will come across an exciting opportunity. Take advantage of it when it comes.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Angel: Aquarius, the best way to attract love and light into your own life this month is to spread it yourself. Bring positive energy by handing it back to the people around you. Dressing as an angel represents your core desire to be truly good and kind to everyone around you. And don’t just be an angel on Halloween, try to be one every day of Scorpio season. How can you practice being a good person today?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)    

Cupid: Scorpio season is bringing you love and romance, Pisces! Dressing as a Cupid just affirms your desire for romance and this month that desire will be met. You will be overwhelmed with love, but you need to pursue it yourself. Shoot your shot, Cupid!

Don’t be surprised if you have a long-distance romantic encounter. Distance does not negate the love coming your way. Later this month, if a lover tries to pick a fight, it’s not about you; they are angry at something else and need some loving support this month. Don’t engage with them and instead try to get to the core of the issue. Maybe you can surprise them with a grand gesture to support them! Continue leading with romance, as Cupid would.

 Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Lifeguard: Aries, this month you need to put up your walls. Protect your heart and emotions above all else. Dress up as a profession that has an obligation to protect and save people. You might find yourself solving crisis after crisis, like a lifeguard. But, also like a lifeguard, you need to take care of yourself, otherwise, you might find yourself drowning too. Look after your heart.

Also, if you get any opportunities to make some petty cash, dive in. Money should be flowing — manifest this by dressing up as Grinnell College’s highest-paying job.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

 Anna Delvey: Delvey was portrayed in Netflix’s 2022 dramatic miniseries, “Inventing Anna,” for frauding millions out of New York’s wealthiest. She was stubborn and sneaky, which is maybe what you, Taurus, need to embody this month. Don’t be afraid to fight for something, even if you must be a little malicious. You deserve whatever you want and if you have to take down everyone around you to get it, so be it.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Ken from Greta Gerwig’s unreleased “Barbie” (2023): Gemini, this month you should sit back and just lean into your greatest asset: your good looks! We can all take a lesson from Ryan Gosling: who needs talent or skills when you’re attractive? Seriously, sit back, take it easy and let the world come to you.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Chef (or specifically, Jeremy Allen White from “The Bear” (2022)): if you missed out on Hulu’s “The Bear,” you might have missed out on the hottest TV show of the year. But what really made White attractive was his personality, not just his good looks. He took care of everyone on this show, as a person and as a chef. He took care of his family and his staff. He cooked for everyone. If you have the desire to take care of everyone, do it.

 This month, you need to step back and listen to those around you. How can you help your loved ones? Ask them what they need and how you can be supportive. Can you literally cook them a meal?

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Queen Elizabeth or Anne Harris: Leo, this month you need to continue to channel your desire to be independent and powerful. If you get an opportunity to assume some power, you should jump on it! Exude this desire by dressing as one of these two powerful ladies for Halloween. Not much more I need to say here — you know who you are. Don’t do anything that is not helping your agenda. 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Janine from “Abbott Elementary:” Yes, she is canonically a Sagittarius, but everything about her screams Virgo. She’s someone who keeps a bullet journal and has every color of Pilot G-2 0.5mm pens. If you’re feeling anxious or stressed, lean into your desire to plan and prepare. Try to solve any issue by writing it down and making a chart or an extensive to-do list that breaks down a logical and tangible solution to your problem. Follow your mind, not your heart this month.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Ted Lasso: Libra, your primal desire is to be caring and kind, and you should do that! Be unapologetically yourself. Lasso is annoyingly optimistic, compassionate and gracious. Give, give, give. Think about giving your favorite sign a thoughtful gift. Don’t forget to be playful and lean into your inner child!
