Whether you’re a feisty fire sign like Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius or a grounded earth sign like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, there are tons of interesting, creative costume ideas for you to consider. Take a look at some of these Halloween costume ideas inspired by the zodiac.
Aries, being ruled by Mars means that you are always ready to get up and put your best foot forward. You need a costume this Halloween that really embodies that fiery, fighter energy within you. So, just think of your most favorite warrior icon and consider that your costume. If you’re not really into warriors and action film characters, maybe you can dress up as your favorite boxer or wrestler. Just make sure it’s something that reflects your fighting spirit.Read More »
As the first earth sign, Taurus you are known for laying strong foundations and being connected to the Earth which is why an Earth goddess costume is right up your alley. Simple, yet elegant and grounded, the Earth goddess reminds us of the abundance and cornucopia of life. Now, if the earth goddess vibe is a bit too soft or just not up your alley, there are other ways that you can harness earth energy into a costume. Taurus also rules making the almighty dollar, so you could be a banker, or if you’re interested in laying down foundations, how about a construction worker. Taurus also likes food, so a chef is a great idea. All of these costumes are just some examples of Taurus’ grounded, earthy, sensual energy.
Honorable Mentions-Banker, construction worker, and chef
Gemini-The Jester/Scary Clown
The ever agile Gemini needs a costume that reflects their airy duality. A jester or scary clown costume embodies the energy of Gemini. It’s that mix of smiling clown with a twist of something sinister that is perfect for Halloween. If clowns aren’t really your thing, Gemini has always been associated with eternal youthfulness which is perfect for any Peter Pan-themed costume. Peter Pan, Tinkerbell….take your pick. The comic book character Harley Quinn is another custom that reflects the duality of Gemini.
Honorable Mentions-Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and Harley Quinn
Cancer is known for its link to lunar energy and the home. So, being a housewife is a pretty traditional costume for this sign. If you want to give it an edge for Halloween, maybe you could be a Stepford Wife or if you are feeling a bit morbid, turn your lovely housewife costume into a zombie housewife. If housewives aren’t really your thing, Cancer is ruled by the moon. What howls at the moon? Werewolves. This is a perfect idea for those wanting a more animalistic costume.
Honorable Mentions-Werewolf, crab, and moon maiden
Leo, you know that your costume has to be amazing. After all, you want to have all eyes on you. Consider being a famous rockstar. Make sure your Halloween costume is someone with fame and obviously noticeable to others…Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Elton John…that way you’ll get lots of attention when people notice who you are portraying! Or, you could just dress up like royalty! You are already a king or queen, so you’ll definitely look the part. Leo is associated with cats big and small…also perfect for a Halloween costume.
Honorable Mentions-King or Queen and cats (lions, tigers, domesticated cats, etc.)
Virgo, you like to keep it nice and clean, so a maid costume is perfect for you. If you want to add a little edge, you could definitely opt for the naughty maid because even Virgo has its passionate side it keeps tightly bound. Virgo is also known for being quite book smart which is perfect for a librarian costume that is easy to make, simple, quite practical, and won’t cost an arm and a leg.
Honorable Mentions-The Virgin Mary and librarian
As one of the social butterflies of the zodiac, Libra would definitely enjoy a masquerade costume. Libra enjoys getting dressed up and attending parties where they can meet new people. A masquerade costume has just the right amount of flair for Halloween…plus you get to wear a mask! Libra also rules fairness which is perfect for a costume in the legal field…such as a judge. Since Libra rules the sign of partnership, coupled themed costumes such as Bonnie and Clyde are also a great idea.
Honorable Mentions-Judge and coupled costumes
Scorpio, some would say that for you every day is Halloween. But since there is this one day out of the year that we all get to dress up, why not be the grim reaper? You’ll get to ever so silently strike fear into the hearts of people everywhere you go. If you are looking to indulge your connection to darkness and death, consider being a grotesque zombie a la Night of the Living Dead. There’s nothing that says Scorpio more than an obsessed zombie looking to eat you alive.
Honorable Mentions-Zombie, witch, and a phoenix
For the sign that is always jet setting, Sagittarius, you’d definitely make a great flight attendant! Get your best crisp shirt, slacks or skirt, and comfortable, yet stylish shoes and invite everyone to fly the friendly skies. Sagittarius also rules religion and philosophy, so a religious figure costume is an option. Think nun or the pope. If you are into animal costumes, Sagittarius rules dogs as well as wild horses.
Honorable Mentions-Religious figures (pope, Jesus, Buddha, nun), adventurer, and horses
Some may think that Capricorn is too busy and mature to participate in Halloween. But, everyone, including the usually stern and adult-like Capricorn, deserves to have a little costume fun this Halloween. As a matter of fact, Capricorn can rock the high-powered business executive look like no other. If this seems too boring and close for comfort, Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn which is known for its distinctive ring. Dress up as the planet Saturn! This zodiac costume is sure to catch everyone’s attention.
Honorable Mentions-Banker, goat, Saturn (the planet)
Being the weirdo that you are Aquarius, you’ll definitely want a costume that reflects your inner and outer weirdo. The quirky, wiry-haired, weird scientist is definitely the way to go. As an air sign, Aquarius is always interested in the unusual and peculiar. Aquarius also has a special connection to space and that includes aliens. Pick the most intriguing alien costume whether it’s a cute alien or a grotesque, scary one that harvests human eggs and sperm and make it the best costume ever, Aquarius.
Honorable Mentions-Alien, favorite sci-fi character, and a lightning bolt.
As the ethereal, mystical sign of the zodiac, Pisces needs a costume that is otherworldly. A mermaid is a perfect blend of alluring mysticism. Watch out though! True to Neptune energy, mermaids aren’t always what they appear to be. Sometimes mermaids are referred to as sirens…the beautiful sea creatures who lure sailors to their death. Since Pisces is a dual sign, they may enjoy playing up the lovely mermaid versus the enchanting yet sinister siren energy. Very Halloween appropriate.
