21 Astrology Themed Halloween Costumes For Every One Of The Zodiac Signs
Zodiac, Self

Authentic, fun, and hot!

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. 

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 2017 crawling the bars dressed as Pennywise the Clown from It 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, it's never quite as much fun to head out to a party in a new something-something that makes you look and feel your absolute best.

And 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 a 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 to spend 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 loud and proud that I am ALL 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 symbolic character, so to speak, that represents 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, and that you can probably even make for yourself at little to no cost if you just do some searching through your closets.

So with no further ado, here are 21 of the BEST Halloween costumes for you based on astrology and your Zodiac sign:

Aries: Maleficent

Maleficient's horns echo those of the ram without making you feel like, well, a male bighorn sheep, which is exactly what rams are. All you need is a little black dress, smokey makeup, and to follow this tutorial using a headband, plastic cups, wire, and tinfoil.

Taurus: Daria

Just because you're as stubborn as a bull, you don't have to dress up as one to represent your true Taurus nature. Cartoon-fan favorite Daria is as cheeky and bullish as they come, and her outfit is super easy to pull together and cute as can be to boot.

Cancer is known for being highly sensitive to those around them, as well as for being a force of nature to be reckoned with. X-Men's Storm is the only possible character who can possibly fit that bill.

Capricorn: Strict School Teacher

Capricorns are the most independent, natural leaders of the zodiac, and if you know what's good for you, you will NOT try to misbehave in their presence. If that doesn't say school teacher with the ruler of steel and a pencil skirt to die for, I don't know what does.
