Zodiac for October



Libra – September 23 – October – 22 – Libra is balance, harmony, and love of beauty seeking self-completion.  The house where your Libra rules is where you will be challenged to find balance. Here your ability to see both sides of any issue can lead to difficulty making choices.



Scorpio – October 23 – November 21 – Scorpio is intense emotional power probing and penetrating into the unconscious; seeking the power of transformation at work in ordinary reality; seeking to accept all that is frightening or overwhelming.  The house where your Scorpio rules is where you will be challenged to completely transform your life. You seek control in this part of your life and can be manipulative and secretive.

Halloween – Roasted Red Pepper Deviled Eggs



8 large eggs
1/4 cup drained and chopped jarred roasted red peppers
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon paprika, plus more for sprinkling
Salt and pepper
3 chives, cut into 16 1/2-inch pieces


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Gently lower eggs into water, return to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer. Cook eggs 11 minutes, drain and place in a large bowl of ice water. Cool completely, at least 10 minutes.

2. Crack eggs and carefully peel under cool running water. Slice in half lengthwise, scoop out yolks and place them in a food processor with peppers, mayonnaise, mustard and paprika. Cover and refrigerate whites. Process yolk mixture until smooth; taste and season with salt and pepper.

3. Transfer yolk mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip or a large ziplock bag. If using a bag, squeeze out air, seal and snip off a corner. Pipe about 1 Tbsp. filling into center of each egg white, to resemble a pumpkin. Set a piece of chive diagonally into filling to resemble a stem. Sprinkle yolks with paprika. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to a day.
