The Stephen King Novel That Will Give You Nightmares, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

The Mist

You hate the unknown and you hate feeling helpless. If you were being threatened by monsters, all you’d want to do is fight back, not lock yourself up or run. That’s what makes this story so terrifying to you. 

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

Salem’s Lot

You’ve always thought there was something spooky about small towns. And although you aren’t usually into vampires, this novel will be the exception, because these bloodthirsty creatures come across as sinister, not romantic.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

The Shining

The idea of being isolated with no easy way of escaping creeps you out. So does the idea of being stuck with family members that you know you can’t trust. 

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

Pet Sematary

You’re an animal lover. You don’t want to see any of them in pain. And you definitely don’t want to see any of them rising from the dead. 

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption

It might not be traditionally spooky, but the idea of getting locked in prison for years for a crime you did or didn’t commit is terrifying to you. You don’t know how long you would last inside of a jail cell.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd


Honestly, you’re already a little timid about driving. If you found out that your car was possessed by supernatural forces, you would never sit behind the wheel again.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

Being lost in the woods is one of your biggest fears — at least, it was when you were as young as the little girl in this book. You don’t know if you’d be able to survive on your own for long.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st


You love dogs more than people. Your pet is your best friend in the world. You would put down a rabid person without thinking twice — but a rabid dog? It’s more complicated.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st


Even though this novel isn’t really horror, the concept of traveling through time to change the entire course of history terrifies you. You wouldn’t want that much pressure on yourself. It would be too much for you.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th


You were the kid that never really fit in. The kid that wished they could get revenge on their peers. It’ll scare you how much you relate to Carrie. 

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th


Your dream is to become famous for your passion. For the world to know your name and appreciate your art. That’s why the idea of a fan becoming so obsessed with you that they actually kidnap you will keep you up for nights, worrying. 

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th


You’re still a child at heart, which is why the idea of clowns freak you the fuck out. You don’t want them near you. No thank you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
