Like a boss.

If you've been watching the news recently or keeping up on social media, then you heard the doomsday claim — the world was supposed to end on Saturday, September 23rd

Seems that the Christian numerologist says it's just delayed and really the end of the world will happen on October 21st.

Yep, you heard correctly, RESCHEDULED. So, if the world is going to end... Again... because it didn't the last handful of times it was supposed to ... might as well be ready, you know, just in case. (cough)

Forgive me if I sound skeptical, but it just doesn't seem likely, especially since someone somewhere has been saying the world is going to end forever now.

You can probably recall at least one or two instances in your lifetime when you heard that the world as we know it was over. And some people believed it, while others made jokes about it on Twitter (because that's the best way to cope with this kind of news).

Of course, if you turn the news on today, all it feels like is that the world really IS ending, thanks to all of the natural disasters happening, including the monster hurricanes and earthquakes we've all been dealing with.

So, whether you believe the world is going to end because of hurricanes or the Bible, there's an explanation out there for everyone.

So, if we stop here for a second and say that this prophecy is true, then this only means that the end of the world is beginning, NOT that the end of the world will happen right away.

In fact, Meade says that after the end of days has begun, the world will go into a seven-year period where a bunch of catastrophic events happens.

So, not only will the end of the world happen, we'll have to deal with the end of the world for an entire seven years.


It's been feeling like the end of the world since last November, if you catch my drift. But anyway.

Meade also says that a planet called Nibiru, formally exposed as a hoax by NASA, will pass over Earth later this year and bring with it a whole bunch of catastrophes, ranging from earthquakes and hurricanes to tidal waves and volcanic eruptions.

So, you know, get ready for that.

According to some Christians, this planet Nibiru has been mentioned in the Bible, except under the name "Wormwood."

And after Wormwood or Nibiru or whatever signals the end of days, this show will get on the road and the apocalypse will come.

Now, if you couldn't tell, I don't believe this crap. Prove me wrong, Universe, but I don't. I do however think it would be pretty interesting to know how I would handle the astrological apocalypse. 

Would I be in charge and know exactly what to do or would I just be a giant mess and stay in my apartment until the Earth exploded?

I know you're wondering this too, and luckily for you, finding out how you would prepare for the end of the world (more specifically, how your sign prepares for the end of the world) is a MUCH better topic of discussion than trying to figure out if the world is actually going to end this weekend.

So, if you've always wanted to know how your zodiac sign plans for doomsday, then get ready because I'm gonna drop some knowledge on you.

And after you've finished reading your apocalypse horoscope, you might want to prepare for the end of the world, just in case it does happen on Saturday.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Aries, you are a natural-born leader, so it only makes sense that you would take on that role as a leader when the end of the world approaches.

You know how to stay calm under pressure and can even keep others calm, which is something else you should be prepared for as the end gets closer and people start freaking out more.

As a leader, you need to use your power and influence to stay safe, Aries — for as long as possible, that is. People are going to start getting greedy and selfish.

So, unless you want to get trapped with a bunch of people who would rather freak out than be proactive, you need to put yourself first. You can be the leader everyone needs a little later, but for now, start devising your backup plan, just in case.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

To you, Taurus, the end of the world means the end of everything you love the most.

Your favorite pizza place, the list of movies you still haven’t watched on Netflix, your favorite bar by your apartment — all of it will be gone before you know it. So how do you prepare for the end of the world? By enjoying your favorite things one last time.

You may realize only a little too late that you have no plan, no food and water, and no shelter (depending on what the end of the world is going to look like), but at least you can say that you enjoyed your last moments on Earth.

You may choose to enjoy these moments by yourself or with your BFF (or that one special person), but however you do it, you’ll be going out like a true Taurus: surrounded by your favorite things.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Hearing that the world is going to end has only given you more things to freak out about, Gemini, and that just isn’t something you want to deal with right now.

You knew this day would come for a while now (just look at what’s going on in the world!) and yet, you still didn’t prepare. Never fear, there’s always a way around things like this, just like there was when you forgot to do your homework or study for a test in school.

Your plan of action as doomsday draws near: follow the important people. You’ll probably end up hitching yourself to any group of people who look like they know what they’re doing and ride out the end of days with them.

This means someone else has to make the hard decisions and has access to all the necessities, and all you have to do is try not to hyperventilate.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you don’t want to think about everyone you’re going to lose when the world ends, so you make as big an effort as you can manage to enjoy the time you have with the people you love before you lose it all.

This might mean going to all of your favorite places one last time or staying home and just enjoying the company of others, but you’re determined to stay as optimistic as possible — until you can’t anymore.

When sh*t starts to hit the fan, you may start getting overwhelmed, especially because you know people are going to get crazy fast. It’s important that you stick close by your friends during this time because they will be the ones to keep you sane.

It’ll also give you the chance to help others without getting too caught in your thoughts about what’s really going on, which will be a godsend for you.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

No one wants to hear it, but media coverage will be INSANE when the end of the world happens. You know there will be someone out there watching it unfold, so why not be the one to bring the action to the people, Leo?

It’ll probably earn you some extra Instagram followers, while still being the most “Leo” activity you could think to do during the apocalypse.

That said, your constant streaming of “The End of the World 2017” is a good idea. It gives everyone an idea of the places to avoid and how to prepare for what’s coming.

Some might see it as a silly idea, but you’ve gone and become an innovator in a time of crisis instead of freaking out over something you can’t control. Go you!

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

As a Virgo, you are already an avid planner, so life was really just preparing you for the end of the world long before anyone knew it was going to happen.

You will be the person to schedule when to move and when to rest for the night, where to get supplies, and the best routes out of the area — complete with which roads to avoid and where to fill up the car.

You’ll definitely need a co-pilot, though, to really get your group moving. You may be good behind the scenes, but you work better knowing that you have a strong personality by your side to do the dirty work (like keeping your group to only a few people to avoid problems).

You tend to keep a clear head in difficult situations, too, and the end of the world is no exception.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Everyone knows that you hate confrontation and any kind of uncomfortable situation, Libra, so it’s no surprise that when the end of the world comes, you’re nowhere to be found.

The idea of having to deal with an apocalypse, plus getting somewhere safe and getting supplies is just all too much for you.

If anyone needs you (and you hope they don’t), you’ll be in your underground bunker/shelter thing.

The best part about places like this is that you can plan for weeks or months in advance, which means you have no need to go to the grocery store or get gas.

You can lock yourself away from the craziness and wait ‘til it’s all over. If this plan doesn’t scream “Libra” I don’t know what does.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

When you hear the words “end of the world,” Scorpio, you know that it’s going to be nothing but a big party for you. When you think of the end of times, you automatically think about how no one cares about the law anymore.

This means you can pretty much do whatever and steal whatever you want.

Sure, you’ll steal some food and supplies as you need them, but now you can finally get those expensive shoes you’ve always wanted or steal yourself a car that costs half a million dollars.

It’s not exactly practical, but who says you have to be practical when the world is ending, right Scorpio?! You’d rather have all the fun while you still can.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

It’s finally getting towards the end of it all, Sagittarius, and you’re nowhere to be found. And I mean NOWHERE. You aren’t hiding in an underground shelter or locking yourself in your apartment.

Nope. You are miles and miles away from the thick of it, and you have been for quite some time now. How did THAT happen?!

You’ve been anticipating this apocalypse for some time now and have slowly been getting yourself packed up to ride it out alone.

You’re not one to sit around and let others take control of YOUR fate or worse, cling onto you because you seem like you know what you’re doing. Instead, you’ve ditched everyone weeks before the news finally broke and now you’re living it up somewhere secluded.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Capricorn, the news of the end of the world means you want to spend as much time with family as you can, so the first thing you do is get everyone together in one place.

Family has always been important, and if you have to pretend like everything’s fine so you can enjoy one last family dinner, then so be it.

You might not even try to leave the city or your home. What’s the point now anyway, right? Instead, trying to get some family time in and loving every minute of it sounds so much better to you.

In instances like an apocalypse, there really isn’t any point in working yourself up over the looting and craziness and stress. As long as you’ve got your family with you, you might just be okay with it all.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Just because it’s the end of the world doesn’t mean you don’t care about surviving for as long as possible, Aquarius. In fact, the first thing you did when you found out was getting down to the grocery store and stock up on non-perishables and water.

You want to stay smart through all of this, which means starting with the essentials while people are still freaking out.

You’re also pretty smart, so you’re not afraid to consider weapons, too. That isn’t to say you’re going to actually use them, but if you ever need to arm yourself, you know you have the tools for it.

Besides, who knows exactly what’s going to happen during the end of the world? You’re always open to the possibility that there could be zombies or aliens, so you want to be as prepared as possible, no matter how absurd the situation is.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Pisces, you know that you might not always be the person with the strongest will or the one with the best ideas in a crisis, but you do know how helpful you can be in any situation.

You will probably end up sticking close by to friends and family during the end of the world, but not without sharing some of your best caretaker skills.

This means dealing with first aid situations, helping gather more supplies, keeping phones charged and cars filled up, and anything else that will keep you and your group safe for as long as possible.

While others might seem like they are starting to lose themselves in the chaos, you are always there to bring everyone back to reality so you can concentrate on what’s most important.
