21 Best Halloween Costumes For Women And Couples Based On Zodiac Signs And Astrology

If you love everything astrological like so many people do, you may already have considered that Halloween is the absolute perfect time of year to show off your Sun Sign pride by choosing the perfect solo or couples costume in line with characteristics and traits of the zodiac signs.

I mean, you already know it's pretty much guaranteed that every other woman over the age 18 will be dressed as Eleven from Stranger Things.

And I feel fairly certain that 99 percent of the adult male population will spend Halloween 2019 crawling the bars dressed as Pennywise the Clown from It Chapter Two now that men are on to the fact that so many women are feeling oddly attracted to his bizarre animal magnetism.

Unfortunately for these gentlemen, the phenomenon probably has far more to do with hottie Bill Skarsgård than with the clown suit, but they'll find that out for themselves soon enough ...

Some of us have our go-to costumes that we wear (and, therefore, wear out) year after year.

While these reliable old favorites are probably easy and cheap, that's never quite as much fun as it is to head out to a party wearing a new something-something that makes you look and feel your absolute best.

For many of us, it's impossible to look or feel all that great if we don't feel like our authentic selves, even if that self is masquerading as an adorably cute woodland creature of some sort.

Personally, I find one of the best sources for getting in touch with my own creative thinking in a way that rings true to who I believe I am at my core is spending some time exploring the various characteristics of my zodiac sign.

I'm an Aries, and I will always be the first person to both admit and declare that I am 100 percent Aries through and through, for better and for worse. But ... I don't particularly feel like dressing up as a ram anytime soon, know what I mean?

The excellent news is that even though each of the zodiac signs has it's own symbol to represent them, you can absolutely dress up in a way that represents the many unique characteristics and personality traits of a Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn, what-have-you, without having to default to a costume that is a literal representation such as a bull, fish, or sea-goat.

(I mean, what the heck is a sea-goat anyway? Am I right?)

Because getting started on any creative project can be daunting, no matter how fun and exciting, I'm here today to help get you started with some fresh and out-of-the-box ideas for original costumes you won't see on every other person you know.

So with no further ado, here are 21 of the best Halloween costumes for women and couples, based on astrology and the zodiac signs:

1. Aries (March 21-April 19): Maleficent
