What’s so fun about Halloween? You get to dress up, and wear an aspect of your personality people may know – or not! The cool thing about the zodiac is that each sign contains universal archetypes, or ways of expressing (like Aries, the Warrior) making it really easy to tap your innate character for character inspiration. Instead of just your Sun sign, choose your Moon sign Ascendant/Rising sign. Your Rising Sign is your mask – a visible “costume” you wear every single day. Your Moon is the more hidden part of your personality, so wearing a costume for this sign feels natural to you and a little exciting, too, like inviting your alter ego out to play.
Aries: a competitor at heart, winning the Halloween costume contest is as satisfying as a sexy conquest. Go all out. Play with their heads. Let yourself fully inhabit the character by quoting movie lines and bringing plenty of props: blood, guns, knives etc.

Taurus: as soft-natured and gentle as gruff and bull headed, no one wants to be around an angry Taurus – presenting a host of possibilities for you. No more Mr. Nice Guy? Or maybe it takes too much effort to bother with a costume (make it easy) or you’ll sit this one out watching T.V.
