We know how special your birthday is, so we’re sharing a monthly run-down of everything you should wear, read, watch, and do to celebrate your big day. Tune in every month as we share a guide to having the best birthday month, all according to your zodiac sign.
The sign of mystery, sex, and darkness (I mean, it is the sign of All Hallow’s Eve) is upon us, so we’re ready to celebrate exactly how they would. Get ready for crime TV, thriller books, black clothes, and cozy nights at home to make the most of your sign, Scorpio (And if you’re reading this Drake, we just know you’ll love You. Trust us.).
What to Read
Emmy Harlow moved to Chicago after some family drama and a bad breakup with the heir to her town's most magical family (and infamous heartbreaker), Gareth. When she returns to her magical hometown, she runs into Talia, a badass witch, who's fresh off a breakup with Gareth, who also happened to be seeing Emmy's best friend Linden too. The three set their sights on revenge, but why can't Emmy keep her eyes off of Talia? Revenge, new love, and magic are basically a Scorpio's middle name—they won't be able to put this down.
Jade Daniels is an angry half-Indian outcast who's obsessed with horror movies. So when blood actually starts to spill into the waters of Indian Lake, she pulls us into her dizzying, encyclopedic mind of blood and masked murderers and predicts exactly how the plot will unfold, just like a mystery-loving Scorpio would.
Romantic Scorpios deserve a classic romance, and if it's historical, even better. A London bank heiress and a financier find themselves at the altar for a bit of adventure on her end and a plot to launch his political career, but a trip to Scotland might inspire some real feelings.
What to Watch
1. American Crime Story: Impeachment
What it’s all about: We all think we know the story of President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, but there is a lot more than meets the eye. This show follows Monica and Bill’s relationship and the trial that would ensue.
Reasons Scorpios will love it: juicy government conspiracies, a forbidden romance, and Sarah Paulson in probably her best role yet
What it’s all about: When the house of Atreides is given control of a dangerous, basically inhabitable planet known for its priceless substance called “spice,” they must fight for their lives to protect their family.
Why Scorpios will love it: an amazing score, an epic story of survival, and a little bit of magic
What it’s all about: A bookstore owner named Joe falls in love at first sight with Beck—and he has some creepy ways of showing it. The third season, releasing next month, follows Joe and Love (a killer couple) as they venture into parenthood.
Why Scorpios will love it: a deeply toxic relationship, a “you won’t believe that happened” twist, and rich family drama
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. Actually enjoy your coffee for once
No more of that “wake up five minutes before work and pour yesterday’s coffee into a mug that you’ll reheat three times.” Scorpios are hard-working and don’t often give themselves a moment to slow down. There is no time like crisp fall to enjoy a really good cup of coffee, whether you make it at home or pick it up on your hot girl walk.
2. Go on a date
The sign of romance and commitment deserves a hot date, whether with your partner of five years, someone you just met on an app, or yourself. Maybe it’s a night in binge-watching one of the shows above or a night on the town in a new outfit.
3. Start a gratitude journal
As the holiday season approaches and your calendar suddenly fills, make sure to focus on gratitude. Starting a journal will hold you accountable and keep a record of your thoughts. This is something you can consistently go back to, which intense and emotional Scorpios will appreciate.
