Halloween is on Tuesday, October 31, 2023, the same day Venus and Uranus conspire to resurrect your love life (a zombie-free version, we hope!) Our Halloween horoscopes include costume ideas worthy of your zodiac sign’s best trick-or-treat traits.
If you’ve been in the love doldrums, get ready to break out of the box on Halloween with the help of romantic Venus and change-making Uranus. You might even let your alter ego take the wheel on this one! It is Halloween after all!
Single? This mashup could spark up chemistry out of the blue, perhaps with someone who’s not your usual type. (Like that sexy vampire ordering a pumpkin lager?) Make the most of it!
Coupled? Watch where you dabble. Either be upfront about your desires or find another way to satisfy your urge for novelty. Play a game of “What if we…?” and come up with something fresh that neither of you has done before—in or out of costume!
What else is happening in astrology for Halloween 2023?
Halloween occurs during Scorpio season every year, adding to the spooky vibes. The Sun in this shape-shifting sign already lends an air of mystery. But hold on to your trick-or-treat bag because right before Halloween there’s a full moon in Taurus, also a partial lunar eclipse (the last in a 3-year series on the Taurus-Scorpio axis).
Check out our Halloween horoscopes below. For even more astrology for your Sun sign, see how your month measured up to our October horoscope forecast.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Halloween horoscope
Parties, what parties? You’ve been working so hard—or living so clean and green—that you’re in danger of missing out on this year’s Halloween festivities. This does not sound like the Aries we know and love. So listen to the pragmatic earth trine between Venus in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus and handle your duties first, whether that means a late night at the office or taking the kids trick-or-treating. But budget at least a little time (and money for a babysitter, if you’re a parent) to slip out and have your own grown-up fun. Read more Aries horoscopes.
Aries costume ideas: witchy, sexy. Grab a few friends and put your siren spin on the classic, Hocus Pocus. The color red is often associated with this sign, a Rihanna-at-the-Superbowl inspired costume would be not only stunning but quite the conversation starter. Or channel your favorite MMA star since Aries is the sign of the fierce fighter and warrior.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Halloween horoscope
Thanks to a dramatic and flamboyant Venus-Uranus trine, this Halloween promises to be epic! Get into the partying spirit by going a little—or, okay, a lot—over the top. Sure, your sexy-devil costume is always a crowd-pleaser, but this year’s stagey vibes call for something a little more inventive. What’s your favorite historical era, or the TV character you identify with most? You could be making some eleventh-hour tweaks to give your look some extra personality (more ideas below!) The fifth house also rules romance. Single Bulls could meet a bewitching new playmate and couples could get a thrill out of dressing up together. Read more Taurus horoscopes.
Taurus costume ideas: couples costume or something super elegant (dancer, tuxedo… think: DWTS contestant). Or channel your inner chef and go as The Bear‘s Carmy, who is now a fashion icon; to get the look you only need a plain, white pocket T, a blue apron, and maybe a frying pan? And definitely insist that party-goers greet you with: yes, chef!
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Halloween horoscope
You might feel pulled in two directions this Halloween, and even your witch’s broom might not be enough to blast you out of that Gemini spiral. This is a holiday after your costume-loving, theatrical heart (ideas below!) Yet with a domestically inclined trine between Venus and Uranus, you might be happier dressing up but handing out candy to the zombie parade from your door. Might there be a way to do that AND indulge in some grown-up treats? Give the kids till 8, then head out and hit the party scene. Or invite some adult ghouls and goblins over and turn your living room into a dance floor. Read more Gemini horoscopes.
Gemini costume ideas: teacher, nurse, nerd. You don’t need to break bank for these, either. A neck whistle and a mustache for an easy Ted Lasso; a solid mock-neck sweater, long flowy skirt and a laminated ID badge on a lanyard for an Abbott Elementary teacher, or a pair of heavy black glasses and a pocket protector for a classic nerd. If you’re feeling super creative, your ruling planet, Mercury, is symbolized by the winged messenger, and your efforts could be worthy of placing in a costume contest.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Halloween horoscope
Go big or go home? Not necessarily. True, it’s the best party night of the year—at least the best party-in-drag night—but with social Venus spinning into a trine with agitating Uranus, you might prefer to limit your Halloween fun to a select coven of witches and Stranger Things characters. A small gathering could quickly balloon into a huge one when you post a TikTok and your location is spotted. If you’re not up for that, don’t feel the need to broadcast your plans or make any pity invites. That vampire you didn’t want to come might wind up being a literal energy sucker! Read more Cancer horoscopes.
Cancer costume ideas: over-the-top glam—Google image search and take your pick! Or a pop culture TV mom or dad, but with style: Addams Family matriarch Morticia, Kardashian momager Kris Jenner, Johnny Rose from Schitt’s Creek or Uncle Jesse from Full House?
Leo (July 23-August 22) Halloween horoscope
You know what to do when the scary monsters go low, don’t you, Leo? That’s right: Go high! The stars offer you a very haute Halloween this year, thanks to a decadent trine between Venus and Uranus in the most luxe zones of your chart. Forget the cramped and crazy house parties. You and your caped or feathered date might want to raise the bar at a velvet-rope masked ball. Or put on your own Victorian-era ball with a party at your place or an upscale venue. Splurge on real champagne? Mais oui! Read more Leo horoscopes.
Leo costume ideas: pop star a la Taylor Swift “The Eras Tour.” If you’re hosting, you could hand out friendship bracelets. But if squeezing into sequins doesn’t appeal, a soft and cozy costume is a great choice for a Leo. Lions are obvious, so how about a fuzzy bunny (it’s still the Year of the Water Rabbit!) Or whatever you find in Target’s pajama section, downright abundant in (adult-size) animal onesies this time of year!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Halloween horoscope
Pull out the stops this Halloween! Resplendent Venus is in Virgo—and she’s trining popularity-booster Uranus, which is sure to crown you regent of the party circuit! People who had no idea how hilarious—and edgy and outré—you are may be in for a night of surprises. Apply that clever Virgo eye to a costume and you’re a shoo-in for first prize. If you have kids, take them out on the early shift, then let someone else stay home and hand out the mini-Snickers. Your presence is required elsewhere! Read more Virgo horoscopes.
Virgo costume ideas: buddies, BFFs. The possibilities are endless and maybe a little obvious this year, hello, Barbie & Ken! Or, try a more classic pairing? M&Ms or the full-denim version of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears?
Libra (September 23-October 22) Halloween horoscope
There will no prefab costumes for you this Halloween—not with a wildly imaginative Venus-Uranus trine, activating the most fantasy-fueled zones of your chart. Your creative vision will be ablaze as you paint, sew, stitch and feather together a wild get-up (see ideas below!) The preternatural vibes are perfect for a soulful exchange with a sexy zombie who’s been haunting your radar for a while. Attached? Find a quiet corner to drop the masks and share your hopes for your shared future. Read more Libra horoscopes.
Libra costume ideas: decadent historical figure, baroque queen, socialite, Bridgerton character. Or any of the royals, past or present. Turns out King Charles is getting some street cred with his 75th birthday celebrations this year. Sidenote: with the Libra new moon supercharging your sign earlier this month, be sure you know who’s behind the masks you attract while you’re out trick-or-treating.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Halloween horoscope
Oh, please, Scorpio! Don’t tell us that simply because the most fun and outré holiday of the year falls on a Tuesday that you’re going to call it an early night. This year’s Halloween promises to be a wild affair, with a convivial and edgy Venus-Uranus trine calling for communal bonding. What better way to act out some fantasies than by dressing up and losing yourself amid the throngs of decadent revelers? Been eyeing a certain zombie for a few months? Here’s your chance to make your boldly wicked move. Read more Scorpio horoscopes.
Scorpio costume ideas: warrior, gladiator, Game of Thrones character. Or put on your laciest black dress, a pair of combat boots and call yourself Wednesday Addams! Dance moves optional.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Halloween horoscope
Working till the witching hour? Thanks to a career-focused trine between creative Venus and inventive Uranus, you could get stuck burning the midnight oil—or writing a 9pm report—at the office. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get your Halloween on! Someone has to have the late shift, and this year that honor may fall to you. Don’t think of it as seconds: It’s a chance to steal the show with the wildest or sexiest costume of the night (some ideas below). And at that hour, people might not have a clue who you are, letting you get away with some audacious (and bodacious!) behavior. Read more Sagittarius horoscopes.
Sagittarius costume ideas: elven creature, fantasy creature. No shortage of ideas for this classic costume, especially if you are into DIY. If not, the interwebs are rife with inexpensive wings, ear covers, wands (Etsy for sure!). Or maybe dress like your signmate, Britney Spears–just make sure those knives are props! Maybe go for the Michael Myers version?
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Halloween horoscope
Promise us, Capricorn, that you won’t just stay home and ignore trick-or-treaters—or swill pumpkin IPAs in the corner booth at your go-to pub. With Venus in your adventure zone playing Truth or Dare with Uranus, this Halloween promises to be one for the history books! Grab an Uber and head to a party in another town—or finally consummate that lusty flirtation. (And how thrilling to do it in costume!) Even if you stay local, with your free-spirited self at the wheel, you’re sure to have a heathenly good time. Read more Capricorn horoscopes.
Capricorn costume ideas: power broker! Dust off your finest power suit, you’re on a mission this Halloween. Or how about power athlete? A tennis skirt and racket to transform into Coco Gauff (how about accessorizing with a mock U.S. Open trophy, too?) The Olympic games are coming up in Paris and Breaking (breakdancing) is now an officially recognized sport! Easy peasy costume and checks the Cap criteria for ambition!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Halloween horoscope
Halloween’s mystery-loving trine between Venus in your sultry eighth house and your ruler, edgy Uranus, sets the perfect stage. But if you’re not feeling all the costuming and tricking, this is also a seductively stupendous night to stay in. Since the eighth house also rules all things erotic, you might hit upon the best possible treat by limiting your private party’s guest list to two: you and your favorite plus-one. Dim the lights, slip into something that resembles a spider web, and let the games begin! Read more Aquarius horoscopes.
Aquarius costume ideas: If you do go out, maybe try a sci-fi alien, very trendy with the U.S. Congress’s Summer UFO hearings. Aquarius is the sign of technology, so you could also choose something from the gaming world. Make it a group effort: Super Mario, Luigi, Daisy and Peaches…”Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, Peaches!” Maybe you need a Bowser, too?!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Halloween horoscope
Even if you start the evening solo, you’re sure to wind up making it a double. With an enchanting trine between Venus and Uranus pinging your partnership zones, you won’t be on your own for long. Make sure your costume reflects your status—and desires (some ideas below!) Don’t worry about being over-the-top: Halloween is all about role-playing. Attached? Don a sexy couple’s get-up and hit the party circuit. Note: This intense transit could spark jealousy, so be mindful of your mate’s feelings. Read more Pisces horoscopes.
Pisces costume ideas: it’s an obvious one for this water sign, but everyone is talking about the most famous mermaid this year: Ariel! Or, go for something less likely to be duped at the party: world traveler. Grab a suitcase and get a fresh pack of film for your Instax camera so you can keep the memories! This simple costume also embraces the easy-going vibes you’ll be feeling.
