What’s so fun about Halloween? You get to dress up, and wear an aspect of your personality people may know about – or not! The cool thing about the zodiac is that each sign contains universal archetypes, universal energy patterns available to us all (for instance, Aries, the Warrior), making it really easy and fun to tap your birth chart for costume inspiration.

Want to enhance your natural creativity and give your energy a lift? You could go with your Sun sign, and your urge to shine, be seen and get noticed. What about your private self -that part of you that no one but loved ones ever really sees? For that, dress up your Moon sign. Or to exaggerate the “mask” you already wear in the world, dress for your rising sign. Your Rising Sign is your mask – the visible costume you wear every single day for the world. 

Aries: The warrior. The daredevil. The competitor. The leader. 

For Aries, winning the Halloween costume contest may be as satisfying as a sexy conquest. So go all out. Play with their ricky bobbyheads. Let yourself fully inhabit your character by quoting movie lines. Bring plenty of props and make sure they’re bloody: guns, knives, etc.
