Aries (March 21-April 19) It is in your nature to be brave and fearless, Aries, which will come in handy this holiday! However, not all your peers have the same energy and may be more easily scared than you are. Don’t give your friends nightmares, but do try to push them outside their comfort zone this Halloween. Try taking them to a haunted house! After all, monsters aren’t real anyway. . . or are they?
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Taurus, you are known for your dependability, making you a key facet in every friend group to keep an eye out on everyone. On the other hand, you are very stubborn and resistant to change. Try to strike a balance between those two qualities this week as your friends will need you for comfort in the midst of eerie surroundings, but also to try new things like wearing that group costume (it’s not as bad as it looks, I promise).
Gemini (May 21-June 20) You are a social butterfly, Gemini! (Hey, maybe that’s a Halloween costume idea?) Your outgoing style radiates to everyone you meet, but be cautious this year. You never know if that chill person you’re chatting it up with has an alternate identity… you can’t risk it on Halloween! Haven’t you seen any horror movies?
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Cancer, you thrive on security and rely on your home as your source of stability. This week, be cautious of the space you inhabit! Whether you just moved in, or have been living there your entire life, you never know who else might be sharing that space with you. . . and no, I don’t mean your roommate and their significant other.
Leo (July 23-August 22) You love being the center of attention, Leo, which can work in your favor this week! With your love for the spotlight, you’ll be sure to put together a look that will make you the star of the costume party! Just be wary as to of the kind of attention you’re attracting; if someone is extremely pale with fangs that don’t look store bought—run, but not into the woods.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Your passion for research and learning new things is not only impressive, Virgo, but will guide you this holiday season! You’ll be prepared for anything sketchy or creepy happening this week: garlic to ward off vampires, tactics to kill a zombie’s brain, and those perfect remedies for any hangover!
Libra (September 23-October 22) Your easy-going nature makes you very adaptable, Libra, but be sure to stand your ground this week. Your sign craves stability, and with hauntings happening throughout this week, you don’t want to put yourself in a place that would jeopardize your comfort. The minute your gut feeling says something is off and you hear the spooky background music— trust your instincts. Maybe stay away from Elm Street on the 31st, or don’t follow your reckless friends into that abandoned house.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Happy Scorpio Season, it’s your time to shine! Your season has just begun; what better way to celebrate your birthday season than by having some spooky Halloween festivities? Your sign is known for being bold, so go hard or go home with your costumes! Your strengths include being a keen observer, so be sure to keep an eye out for anything creepy this week in the midst of celebrating. . . like. . . wait… what was that sound?
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) You have an adventurous spirit, Sagittarius! While that’s a wonderful characteristic to have, be sure to stay grounded and focused this week, as there will be a lot going on, involving the holiday. You don’t want to steer too far away from the crowd and get lost on Halloween—that’s a horror movie script brought to life. Stay with your people, and be sure to set a game plan.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Try to ease up this week, Capricorn. You are skilled in maintaining order and stability, but allow yourself to go with the flow the next few days. You’re normally the one to take on the burden of others, so have someone else do the planning and organizing this holiday. Just be sure to put your foot down if they have you dress up as something offensive or weird.
Aquarius (January 20- February 18) You are very outside the box, Aquarius, so be sure to utilize that trait when choosing your Halloween costume! If you have the time, be sure to make something homemade and unique. You’ll be sure to win that costume contest, and you’ll stand out in the crowd! However, that makes you an easier target for that one vampire or werewolf Halloween night. . . okay, maybe don’t get too creative.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Pisces, you are known for being trustworthy— an admirable skill that can also come to a fault. This week, be careful who you trust. You never know if that person you’re really close to is the one behind the town’s missing people (come on, “Scream,” anyone?) (Okay, Oneonta’s not actually missing people, but if your friends start acting off this week, be cautious as to what you share).
