Emily Austin
Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead

Don't let this title scare you Scorpios, Emily Austin hilariously tells the story about a twenty-something atheist lesbian named Gilda, who is tormented by the idea of death and decides to seek free therapy at a Catholic Church. When she is greeted by Father Jeff who thinks she is there for a job interview, she can't bring herself to correct him, and lands herself a new job as the receptionist. She soon learns that she is filling the shoes of their last employee, a recently deceased woman named Grace. Gilda finds herself in a sticky situation when Grace's old friend is trying to reach out to her via the church's email and begins impersonating her instead of hitting her with the hard news of her dear friend's passing. But when the police discover suspicious circumstances surrounding Grace’s death, Gilda may have to finally reveal the truth of her mortifying existence.

What to Watch

1. The Watcher

What it’s all about: Based on a true story, a family moves into their dream home that soon becomes a nightmare when they start to receive cryptic anonymous letters in the mail from someone named “The Watcher” who seems to be watching their every move.

Reasons Scorpios will love it: If there is one thing this show has in common with this water sign it’s that they are both very intense. Scorpios love to keep you guessing and this story does exactly that. 

Where to watch: Netflix


2.  My Policeman

What it’s all about: A policeman in the 1950s, played by Harry Styles is in a loving marriage, and finds himself inching toward a forbidden budding romance with another man.

Why Scorpios will love it: Scorpios may have a hard exterior, but lest not they are emotional creatures at best (water sign, remember?). In ancient astrology, Scorpios are ruled by Mars, the planet of passion, power, sex, and aggression. This story certainly explores all of those themes all the while tugging at the heartstrings, and Scorpios will definitely resonate with everything that lies within this movie.

Where to watch: In theaters now (streaming on Prime Video starting November 4th)


3. The Craft

What it’s all about: Sarah moves to Los Angeles where she meets three wannabe witches at her new Catholic school who seem to be attracted by her telekinetic gifts. When they recruit her as their fourth member and start practicing witchcraft, they find themselves stirring up more chaos in their lives than they anticipated. 

Why Scorpios will love it: Ruled by Pluto (in modern-day astrology), the planet of transformation, taboos, and tapping into the unknown, Scorpios will love the spookiness and mystery in this movie.

Where to watch: Prime Video


What to Listen to

If you’re looking for passion and intensity, the Scorpio playlist is for you. Scorpios are emotional like their fellow water signs, but they have a magnetism and sensuality that is quite unmatched. You can anticipate this playlist to have a lot of slow ballads, dare I say, “sexy” songs, and tunes that make them feel good.


What to Wear 

Scorpio: sexy, powerful, mysterious. Of course, they show all their traits in their outfits. Even when they’re just lounging at home or running errands, they want to feel confident and like their best selves.

What to Do

1. Get your palm read

Because Pluto rules this fixed water sign, it shouldn’t surprise you that Scorpios love to go through numerous self-transformations in their lifetime. Getting your palm read is a great way of looking at where your life is and where it’s headed in love, friendships, family, and career.


2. Host a murder mystery party

Mystery might as well be every Scorpio’s middle name, so hosting a murder mystery party with close friends is definitely one way to have a little fun this season! Scorpios are curious beings and love to question literally everything. A murder mystery gathering will definitely pique their interest.


3. Bake Halloween treats

Scorpios radiate spooky energy, so this is the perfect time to embrace All Hallows’ Eve with festive sweet treats. Legend has it that Halloween recipes pair perfectly with a scary movie on a cozy night in.
