Look to the stars

Each year, it seems as though a million new Halloween costumes hit the market, making picking one out practically impossible. Should you be the Mother of Dragons? Or perhaps one of Big Little Lies’ Monterey moms? There’s no dearth of ideas coming out of Hollywood, that’s for sure.

So this year, why not save yourself some trouble and let the stars decide for you? 

While using your zodiac sign to choose what costume you're going to don isn't the most scientific approach to this holiday conundrum, it is arguably the most fun. And if we’re really being honest, the astrological traits of each sign actually made it pretty easy to match them to a slew of celebrity-inspired ensembles.

No matter what your sign is (or how much stock you put in astrology), you’ll find plenty of nostalgic and new costume ideas to follow — from late, great musicians to bingeworthy TV characters.

What your sign says about your Halloween style: You know what they say — if you mess with the bull, you'll get the horns. Taureans are slow to anger, but a force to be reckoned with once provoked. They are stubborn to a fault too. But they are also extremely loyal, nurturing, loving, patient, generous, supportive and tenacious. This sign is known for its earthy beauty and flintiness in equal measure, so plan to spend your Halloween playing up that dichotomy.

What your sign says about your Halloween style: Geminis are a duplicitous bunch. You are at once moody, yet affectionate, imaginative yet indecisive. Although this sign is full of social butterflies, it's a hard sign to figure out. Still, your innate charisma and ability to inspire always shine through... and Halloween should be no exception.

What your sign says about your Halloween style: The homebody of the zodiac, Cancer is a sign ruled by a love of family and hearth.

Center your costume search around food and family figures.

What your sign says about your Halloween style: Organized, dependable, overachieving... Virgos are the quintessential good girl (or boy). A perfectionist at heart, you strive to do your best and be a good person too. Friends consider you a good listener, and for good reason — you never forget a thing.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

What your sign says about your Halloween style: Let's be real, Scorpios... you're intense. Your in-your-face confidence can be unnerving, as can your argumentative nature. But it's cool because it all comes from a place of passion. Besides, this sign rules the afterlife, so it's only natural you'd have a dark side.
