Trick or Treat!

It’s that time of year again, when the weather changes, the summer is firmly behind us, and we all look forward to the tradition of dressing up and scaring each other. Are you ready for some spooky fun?

And most importantly, are you ready to find out which Halloween costume is the one for you based on your zodiac sign?

How Did Halloween Begin?

The history of Halloween is tied to the Celtic tradition of Samhain that spans from October 31st to November 1st. Samhain was considered the most important time to remember the dead because it was believed that the borders between the worlds of the dead and the living become thinner.

Many of the Halloween festivities we participate in today are based on ancient Samhain rituals – including the still popular tradition of dressing up in a Halloween costume to go trick-or-treating!

What Halloween Costume Should Your Zodiac Sign Dress In?

Whatever your theme or destination is this Halloween, if you put some thought into what the best costume would be, you’re guaranteed to make a splash!

Read on to find out the best Halloween costume for you!

Aries Costume: Superhero

Rams are the fearless leaders we all follow willingly – especially when it comes to sports and competition. In the heyday of the superhero movie – and with more to choose from than ever – now is the perfect time to dress up as your fave action star!

From the ground-breaking Black Panther to the empowering Wonder Woman or even the antihero Venom, we have a broader base than ever to choose from – supes are a great fit for Aries.

Taurus Costume: Roman Historical Figure

The Romans were people who loved their luxury and leisure. Roman women loved their jewelry, and the Romans were known for their famous baths, one of the most relaxing hobbies they enjoyed the most.

As a Taurus, one thing you love is luxury and lounging. Nothing makes you happier than lying back, enjoying some good food, and letting all your worries drift away as you enjoy some relaxation time. A good foot rub doesn’t go amiss either!

So this Halloween, why not go as a Roman historical figure? They were true Taureans!

Gemini Costume: Butterfly

Shall we say social butterfly? That’s exactly what Gemini is – so what better costume to go as this Halloween than one of these lovely insects!

Grab - or make - yourself some butterfly wings, paint your face a variety of colors and let everyone see your true nature. Gemini is the sign that loves to socialize and when you’re flitting to and fro this Halloween, let your radiant Sun sign out!

Cancer Costume: Nymph/Satyr

With the emotional Water sign Cancer being ruled by the Moon, it is only fitting that a mystical and magical costume is chosen for all you Cancers out there!

Dryads were spirits of Greek mythology who took on the form of beautiful women. Satyrs are the male equivalent to the dryad.

Yours is one of the most beautiful costumes of all, and we think it works very well with this deep and nurturing sign.

Leo Costume: Big Cat

Alright, it might seem a bit cliche, but could you really imagine anything else? Leo the Lion is the number one costume for your sign! Not only does it represent you at heart, but it shows everyone the awesome power of you.

So whether it’s a lion, tiger, leopard, or any other big cat, let that strong and noble feline spirit shine through during this Halloween!

Virgo Costume: French Peasant

You may be thinking: Hmmm – why?

Virgo is a sign of humility – arguably one of the greatest virtues one can possess. Traditionally, a French Peasant is a sign of humble background and living within your means.

Now, if there is one thing Virgo is famous for, it is living within their means! This is a responsible sign and one that gains great respect from those around them for their ability to save, save, save. French Peasants were just as frugal!

Think Les Mis, with a twist!

Libra: Greek Goddess/God

Ruled by Venus, there is surely only one Halloween costume that can justify the beauty you exalt, Libra: a Greek God/Goddess!

Venus is the Roman counterpart to the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite. Why not go as Aphrodite or Hera? As Zeus or Poseidon?

It gives you a chance to let the world see just how gorgeous you really are!

Scorpio: Vampire

Do you know those really sexy vampires from The Vampire Diaries or Twilight? That’s you, Scorpio.

No one can deny you are just oozing with sex appeal, no matter how much you try and hide it. That whole mysterious and seductive thing just draws people in like moths to the flame!

The vampire is the costume of choice for you and brings out that famous Scorpio sexiness even more than usual – plus, it’s very Halloweenish!

Sagittarius: Robin Hood

Or Maid Marion, depending on what you prefer.

The heroic adventurer with a love of bow and arrows is just so you, Sag! Sagittarius is represented by the centaur, a mythical creature with the head and torso of a man and the body of a horse.

Living on the edge is in your blood, as is being wild and free. Robin Hood was all those things – and frankly, you would look so cool in green tights!

Capricorn: Professor

Whether it’s a rigid Giles from Buffy type of teacher, the sexy teacher of everyone’s dreams, or a Dumbledore-type teacher, the private tutor look is so you, Capricorn.

Ruled by Saturn, your sign is all about discipline. Discipline and hard work. What better costume for you than one that represents your ruling planet at its finest?

And if you really want to spice it up a bit and you’ve got the suave thing going on, you could always turn yourself into Christian Grey – he’s a teacher too (in his own special way!)

Aquarius: Historical Figure

You’re the weirdos of the zodiac, but you’re also the inventors, the risk-takers, the dreamers with the capacity to take a crazy idea and make it into something tangible and amazing. Why not go as a famous entrepreneur or whiz kid?

There are many to choose from – what’s your fave invention?

Throw on your favorite black turtleneck and go as Steve Jobs, maybe Elon Musk (he has a freaking rocket company), or one of the granddaddies of invention – we can thank him for swim fins and bifocals: Benjamin Franklin.

Pisces: Popular TV Character

Creative Pisces tend to be drawn to worlds of fantasy – it helps you escape the harsh everyday realities that can overburden you when you aren’t able to affect positive change. The sign of the fish is also known to be helpful and caring, rushing to the aid of others, sometimes at the risk of their own emotional health.

So why not insert yourself into your favorite fantasy? Grab a green tracksuit and become a player in the popular Squid Game. Or maybe you’re more of a Henry Cavill and want to embody the Witcher – whether you like the video game or the TV show.

It’s Time for Some Spooky Fun

Choosing a costume comes down to a lot of things – how much you plan ahead, how much you want to spend, and what your motivation is to get one. Are you heading to a party? Hosting one? Just opening the door for trick-or-treaters? Participating in a contest at work?

Great costumes take some thought and planning, but sometimes what you throw together last minute at a thrift shop can be a scream too. Whether we hit the nail on the head or not with our suggestions, we hope you get out there and have some spooky fun! Tell us if you liked any of these or what you’d choose instead!
