The One Thing You Should Do This Halloween, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Halloween only happens once a year, meaning you have one chance to create a memorable holiday.

What you choose to do to make it worth your while? Well, that's up to you. We know that's a lot of pressure for many of you, so we've taken it upon ourselves to offer some assistance.

Based on your zodiac sign, we've picked out the one thing you absolutely have to do in order to experience Halloween to the fullest. Scroll below to find out what it is!

Aries (March 20 – April 19): Enter a Halloween Costume Contest

Bold and brave, you're not one to stand around in the background waiting for someone to tell you what to do. You live life to the fullest and aren't afraid to take plenty of risks. Competitive is your middle name, so you're always up for a challenge. We'd say friendly, but we know that's never how things turn out; it's just who you are. To satiate your ambitious nature, we suggest entering a costume contest this Halloween. Knowing how much effort you put into your costumes each year, we know you have a solid chance at taking home the trophy for Best Costume. Those who dare run against you better be prepared to lose.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Bake Halloween-Inspired Desserts

You're inspired by glitz and glamour, so the gore that Halloween brings isn't necessarily you're thing. You'd rather spend your money on a lavish spa retreat than a costume that might win you an extra Kit Kat bar. That  said, you do appreciate indulging more than any other sign, and Halloween is the perfect holiday to do that. While all the other members of the zodiac are out trick-or-treating and carving pumpkins, you should stay indoors baking some delicious spooky ooky kooky Halloween desserts. From eyeball cupcakes to finger cookies, you'll have a blast making all sorts of treats that are almost too scary to eat.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Go Trick-or-Treating

On any given day, you can be 45 different versions of yourself. No one ever really knows what they're going to get with you, but one thing's for certain—you love to have fun. You appreciate spending time with a wide variety of people and experiencing all sorts of new things. Your curiosity drives you in making most of your life decisions, which is why trick-or-treating on Halloween is exactly what you should do. If you don't go, you'll experience the worst FOMO, because you won't get to see all the fun decorations, unique costumes or even collect pounds of interesting candy. Grab your pillowcase and get your trick-or-treating on ASAP.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Carve a Pumpkin

Halloween can be a bit of an overwhelming time of year for someone as sensitive as you, Cancer. Sure, you act tough, but when thrown into a haunted house or invited over to watch a scary movie, your fight or flight responses kick in and you quickly bolt for the nearest exit. You're still one who appreciates tradition, however, so carving a pumpkin is a much suitable Halloween activity for you. It also unleashes your inner artist, with your pumpkin as the canvas. Invite your besties over to get in on the fun, too. What will you create with your pumpkin this year? We're dying to find out.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Hit Up an Amusement Park

When it comes to holidays, you don't mess around—and that is especially true for Halloween. You enjoy doing things that either put you in the spotlight or make people jealous. Going to an amusement park that's all decorated for Halloween will do just that. You can wear your most elaborate getup as you get chased by monsters roaming the grounds of Universal Studios, Disneyland or any theme park in the same vein. It also serves as the perfect backdrop for all of your IG posts. What more could you ask for?


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Pass Out Candy

Being the perfectionist you are, you tend to set your expectations fairly high. More often than not, this results in plenty of disappointment for you, because you want nothing but the best and are upset when that doesn't happen. Rather than doing anything that could cause you to be a bit of a Debbie Downer, passing out candy to all of the adorable trick-or-treaters is how you should enjoy Halloween. It'll bring a smile to your face and you can even give them king size candy bars to make sure they brag about your house to all their friends.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Throw a Halloween Party

One of the most social signs in the zodiac, you love being surrounded by people. Fam, besties, strangers, you just adore being in the company of others. Spending time alone isn't something you do, especially not on holidays like Halloween. To get the most out of the festivities, host your own Halloween party. Invite all of your BFFs, classmates, and of course, your family members. Get all your different social groups mingling so you can all be one happy family in no time.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Scare People at a Haunted House

There's so much more lurking under the surface with you, Scorpio. Will that ever see the light of day? Probably not, but you thoroughly enjoy leaving people guessing. You tend to be a bit rough around the edges and have no problem warding people off, which is why working at a haunted house on Halloween is right up your alley. Dress up as a monster and get your creep on in the most entertaining way possible. You tend to shock people on the daily, so giving them the fright of their life on the holiday won't be that difficult for you.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Visit a Haunted House

The ultimate explorer, adventure runs through your veins. You enjoy doing things that take you out of your comfort zone and help you experience a rush of emotions. After knowing all that, how could we not suggest you visit a haunted house on Halloween? It'll get your blood pumping and take you on quite the journey. Though you may not learn the secrets of the world, you'll get a taste of what the underworld has to offer, so how can you turn it down? And who says you have to visit just one? Hit up all the spookiest and scariest ones on your block, or venture outside of your bubble, with your parents' permission, of course.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Host a Halloween Movie Marathon

While everyone is out making the most of life, you're working hard to turn your dreams into realities. You rarely ever give yourself a break from your rigorous schedule, because you have a plan that needs to be stuck to until you're where you want to be in life. Even on holidays like Halloween, you still prefer to work. All work and no play isn't the way to go, especially considering it's the plot point for a horror movie. Speaking of, watching some classic Halloween flicks is just how you should spend the occasion. Round up your family, pop some popcorn and get to it. Which one will you start with first?


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Visit a Pumpkin Patch

You tend to not do what's expected, Aquarius. You prefer to do your own thing, always slightly bending the rules to get what you want out of life. Everyone else may appreciate running through a haunted house or trick-or-treating until they get enough candy to feed a small country, but you don't. Sure, you appreciate the excitingness Halloween has to offer, but you'd prefer to keep things a little more low key on the extravagant holiday. That's why visiting a pumpkin patch would be best for you. It still falls under the umbrella of Halloween activities, but it's not something everyone and their mom is out doing. You're sure to meet plenty of new ghosts and ghouls while you're there.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): Eat All the Candy

As someone who doesn't enjoy reality, Halloween is a pretty fun time for you. You get to escape the everyday for something much more invigorating, albeit, absolutely terrifying. You can handle some of it, but many aspects of Halloween feel a little too nightmarish for your dreamy vibes. To calm your nerves and keep you cloud nine, we highly recommending gorging on all the candy you can get your hands on. Our only request is that you make sure it's only Halloween-themed morsels, and also that you save some for us.
