How You Feel About Halloween, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Halloween is quite the divisive holiday.
Some people spend 365 days planning their costume and anticipating the most extensive walk around the neighborhood to swoop up treats—while others basically lock themselves away for all of Oct. 31.
How do you feel about All Hallows' Eve? Keep reading, and let your zodiac sign decide below:
Aries (March 20 – April 19): You're Super Competitive About It
Fiery and driven Aries, you're always up for the challenge of outdoing everyone, and Halloween is no exception. You've prepped weeks—heck, months, in advance, to have not only the coolest costume in your friend group, but the raddest look in school. You're all about making social sacrifices to get what you want, and all your hard work leading up to this holiday (from your costume to your house decorations) will certainly pay off. You're about to stand out loud and proud!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): You Love Trick-or-Treating at the Nice Houses
Costumes and parties are fun and all, but Taurus, you're all about taking things up a notch and honing in on the opportunity to swoop up all the King-sized candy bars from the nice houses. As the sign with the finest taste and the most practical outlook on life, you're not about to waste hours walking around, collecting Tootsie Rolls. Not only do you love an excuse to get into some of those typically gated-off homes, but the monster treats that their owners provide are enough to keep you going (and save you money) for weeks ahead.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): You Stress About Your Costume
Oh, Gemini—you're the most indecisive sign of the zodiac. One minute, you're all about dressing like Kylie Jenner on her 21st birthday, and the next minute, you agree to join your friends' Fifth Harmony (#RIP) group costume. Your inability to decide can definitely irk some of your pals. While people enjoy the social, excitable sides of you, you also tend to get way too worked up about what to wear, sending yourself into a tizzy. As hard as it is, just try not to get too stressed out over Halloween. It's one day of the year, and no matter what you end up being, we know you'll wear it best.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Taking Photos Is Your Prime Concern
If it's not on the 'gram, it didn't happen, amirite? Cancer, as the most sentimental sign that strongly cherishes togetherness and creating memories, having your camera ready from start to finish on Oct. 31 is very important to you. No two Halloweens are the same, so it's crucial that each one is specially honored. From the costumes, to the trick-or-treating experience, to decorating the house, there's no such thing as a dull moment to you on this day, and you plan to capture it every step of the way.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): This Is Your Fave Holiday of the Year
Oh, Leo. Where do we even begin? As the most popular sign of the zodiac, who also thrives most off attention from others, Halloween was pretty much created just. for. you. Much like Aries, you've pined away for months over perfecting your costume. You must stand out. You have your cutest, flirtiest ensemble ready to go, and you'll stop at nothing to make a splash. And if you're not currently in a relationship, there's a good chance you'll stir up something romantic on this day. Warn mom and dad you may be out past curfew, because from the candy-collecting to the socializing, Halloween is your time to shine!

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): You Think It's a Bit Pointless
Virgo, as the most practical sign of the zodiac, you scoff at people who waste so much time prepping for Halloween. From your point of view, all of that time, energy and money could be put into something far more productive. You're incredibly hard-working and goal-oriented—but your focus lies far beyond coming up with a costume that wins some kind of contest. Halloween hype strikes you as a bit immature. At the end of it all, you see it as a day that leaves you with nothing more than a sugar rush.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): You Celebrate, But You Don't Go Overboard
Libra, you're one of the most balanced and laid-back signs of the zodiac. Whether you especially enjoy a particular holiday or not, you're not about to sacrifice everything to make it memorable. You leave the planning up to your pals and don't put too much pressure on yourself or anyone else to ensure this is the best night of your life. If trick-or-treating is in the cards, then great. But if you're stuck handing out Jolly Ranchers with the 'rents, that's okay with you, too.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): You Love the Eeriness of It All
Halloween is odd and mysterious, much like you, Scorpio. You can be a bit dark at times, relating well to the nature of this holiday. Dressing in costume is especially enjoyable for you, as you often hide your true self in disguise. Whether you trek through a haunted house or watch a scary movie, you're all about the eeriness of this special day.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): You Enjoy Trick-or-Treating Because of the Crisp Fall Night
All of the surfacy stuff that goes along with Halloween doesn't really do it for you, Sag. You're pretty content throwing a white sheet over your head and calling it a day. Parties are fun and all, but they're not your priority. If you had to choose one Halloween activity to embrace, it would hands down be trick-or-treating, but not even because of the costumes or candy. You simply love adventure and being outside. Your sign has a strong appreciation for the beauty that lies in fall, and taking in the aroma and breeze of a crisp fall night does more for you than any other activity centered around this date.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): You're Excited to Show Off Your Sewing Skills
Capricorn, you are nothing if not meticulous. Whether it's how you expertly use an X-Acto knife to design a jack-o'-lantern, or sew a homemade costume like a pro, you manage to do everything with such care and tact. You just aren't one to color outside of the lines, Cap. People are in awe over your incredible skills and responsibility. They normally just go by what they see in the classroom, but when it comes to Halloween, your classmates get to see you in this whole other light. You work really hard to achieve your results, so be proud of your efforts and show off the final product!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): You Live for Creating a Unique Costume
There's no one quite like you, Aquarius. While your head is often in the clouds, it's usually because you're coming up with new ideas or problem-solving. When it comes to Halloween, your original, creative and progressive nature is a perfect fit for the holiday. You make it a point not to replicate anyone's costume, and you ensure no one will ever have yours. While not everyone will necessarily "get" what you're trying to be, they'll certainly give you credit for creativity. To you, there's no such thing as not giving a costume your all.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): You Enjoy Helping Friends With Their Costumes
Pisces, you're one of the easiest signs to be around. Not only are you a harmonious individual who goes with the flow, but you genuinely enjoy spending time with others, and creating a nurturing space for them to enjoy. You're always putting others before you, and Halloween is no exception. Whether your friends need someone to shop around with them from thrift store to thrift store, or they need a little help fixing their costume, you're always there to make sure their Halloween dressing needs are fully met.
