Halloween is just a week away, so it’s probably time for me to start watching terrible Halloween-themed films on TV to pass the time, like “Halloween: Resurrection,” which “Variety” ranks eleven-out-of-eleven on it’s best-to-worst “Halloween” film list.
I often find something to like about scary movies that get terrible reviews. I could watch “Showgirls” again and again — and I have! Yes, I thought that it was scary the first time I saw it (especially that sex scene in the swimming pool), but I eventually learned to laugh out loud at it.
For that reason, perhaps I shouldn’t be afraid of what the universe has in store for me on Halloween. Sure, my chart looks terrible, but maybe I just need to look at it another way. Yeah, I have Saturn conjunct my natal Saturn on that day. I have Jupiter opposite my natal Jupiter. I have Mars conjunct my ascending degree. Mercury even goes retrograde on the same day while conjunct Venus, my ruling planet. Believe me — it’s an astrological horror show!
But when good things happen in my chart, I get overconfident and do stupid things. Perhaps the universe is warning me to stay out of trouble. Maybe I just need to avoid escaped mental patients and auditions for Las Vegas revues. I’ve been making a lot of wise decisions over the past couple of months because I could see this all coming (I’ve been blogging about these upcoming events since August), so maybe I’ll be able to get through this without a scratch. And even if I don’t, I’ll probably still be the last one standing when it’s all over, like Laurie Strode in a “Halloween” movie, or Nomi Malone at the end of “Showgirls.”
What I should be thinking about is whether or not I want to star in all of the sequels, like Jamie Lee Curtis, or just move on to something else altogether, like Elizabeth Berkley. I’ll probably know in a week or two. Until then, I’m going to keep my options open.
