Halloween Costumes and your Zodiac Sign

Creative Halloween Costumes to Reflect Your Zodiac Sign


Choosing a Halloween costume based on your zodiac sign is a great way to express your unique personality. Some signs are easy, such as Leo the Lion or Taurus the Bull, but others require more creativity. Find inspiration in your zodiac’s mascot or the character traits associated with your sign.

As an air sign, anything that takes flight captures your attention whether it is a helicopter or bumblebee. A pixie or Rumplestiltskin indulges your whimsical yet mischievous nature. Aquarians are humanitarians at heart, so consider dressing up as an endangered animal or political issue.

With a fish as your symbol, any water-related theme works for a Pisces. You can dress up as a mermaid, sea monster, shipwreck or Neptune, god of the ocean. Pisces are on a life mission to acquire knowledge, so a librarian, philosopher or fortune-teller represents your inner psyche.

A strong-willed, courageous warrior, the sign of the ram is best represented by heroic characters with passionate personalities, such as Cleopatra, the Red Baron or a Hawaiian fire dancer.

A Western themed costume is less literal than dressing like a bull. A cape and sombrero transforms you into a fearless matador while a cowboy hat and rifle helps you you become the sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Taurus is not afraid to be devilish, so look for a costume that lets loose your inner demon.

Showcase your dual nature by dressing in drag or creating a split personality, such as an angel on one side and a devil on the other. Geminis find humor in quirky puns, such as a bloody knife through a cereal box for a “serial killer” or bunny ears and a broom for a “dust bunny.”

Cancer the crab is fascinated by history and heritage, so choose a costume that reflects your roots. Options include a Scottish kilt, a flapper dress, Dorothy or Mary Poppins.

A ferocious lion or tame kitty perfectly represents Leo, but your passionate personality means you crave a more boisterous costume. Pamper your fantastic fantasies by dressing up as a regal queen, an out-of-control pop star or a colorful flamenco dancer.


Sweet and innocent costumes best represent Virgo. You can either play the part, spice it up or gore out a bridal dress, schoolgirl outfit or knight in shining armor.

Champions of the underdog, Libras serve as the hands of justice. A judge, referee or prison guard is right up your alley.

Indulge your inherent secretive nature by playing superhero, detective, magician or supernatural creature. Brooding and mysterious characters, including a Goth girl, dark fairy or Darth Vader, also make good Scorpio costumes.

Since Sagittarius is represented by the archer, look for a costume that lets you carry a bow and arrow, such as a centaur, cupid, Robin Hood or Katniss Everdeen.

As a lover of legends and lucky symbols, great Capricorn costumes include a pirate, ladybug or lottery ticket.
