Relax, You’re Not In Charge Tonight.
We know, we know – you’re usually the one calling the shots, managing the volunteers and keeping the refreshments stocked. It’s Halloween and tonight, you’re not in charge. Put away that walkie-talkie and let your hair down. It’s your turn to boogie.
Mercury is in Retrograde, the full moon is out, and Monster Mash is at the top of today’s playlist. Whether you’re headed to a haunted house, trick-or-treating with the kiddos, or chaperoning the middle school dance – you’re going to need a costume.
Looking for a little last-minute inspiration? Look no further than your Zodiac sign:
Aquarius – Witch
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
Be aware of fire tonight. Others are in the mood to play tricks, but you’re in need of a few good treats first. Surprise everyone by being more giving than usual. It would be a good time to practice that new recipe with your cauldron and share your new brew with others.
Pisces – Zombie
Feb. 19 – March 20
Your initial instinct to be secretive is a good one tonight. You don’t have to put yourself out there right away – in fact it would be a good time to stick with a crowd. You can do much more if you band together with people with similar interests (even if it’s BrAiNs!).
Aries – Chainsaw Wielder
March 21 – April 19
You’re revved up and your temper is even shorter than usual. Find ways to let off some steam, like running through a cornfield and wielding your favorite chainsaw. Do your best to wait for the right moment – you’ll get a great reaction if you can be more thoughtful about your actions.
Taurus – Werewolf
April 20 – May 20
Halloween is just one of the many nights in the year when you get to make your transformation. With that in mind, take a back seat and let others stand out. Dig deep and pick your moments to shine. You’ll make a bigger impact if you aren’t howling about your own needs all night.
Gemini – Skeleton
May 21 – June 20
This a great night for you to try something new. Push your boundaries to help you develop a fuller understanding of the world. It’s important to build your intellectual fullness to balance out your lack of physical presence. You are often underestimated because of your appearance, but now is a good time to get everyone else’s bones to shake.
Cancer – Mummy
June 21 – July 20
Don’t get hung up on getting back at those people who have wronged you. Tonight is a night to open with your emotions. It’s best if they’re not directed at a specific person, but at anyone who crosses your path. Go ahead and unwind a little!
Leo – Frankenstein’s Monster
July 23 – Aug. 22
The world doesn’t revolve around you – keep reminding yourself of that tonight. You will have more fun if you focus on your strengths instead of trying to please everyone. Your intentions will be misunderstood, so it’s best to focus on what you want regardless of others. Avoid any open flames.
Virgo – Mad Scientist
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Nothing in life is perfect, no matter how hard you try to make everything go exactly the way you want. Step up and focus on your goals: creating the scariest monster you can. Don’t let your emotions control you.
Libra – Vampire
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
Play to your strengths tonight by letting your easygoing nature attract people to you (and avoid any potent foods – especially garlic). Remain diplomatic and sociable, as it can only help you get invited into a few extra houses on this especially spooky night.
Scorpio – Ghost
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
Tonight is a good night to dwell in your resentful tendencies. Feel free to be compulsive and self indulgent. Don’t worry about normal barriers tonight and really let your self float around like you own the place.
Sagittarius – Clown
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
You might be a little too much for everyone every other day of the year, but the 31st is the night to pull out of all the stops. Get your hair and make up done and let your smile shine like the full moon. Draw inspiration from your favorite scary clowns!
Capricorn – Grimer Reaper
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
It isn’t hard to know whose night it is tonight. You can really let your inner darkness show tonight. Save yourself the time of picking out your outfit, and wear your favorite black dress or suit. Own your true nature and let the ghost, ghouls, and spirits do the “scaring” while you really frighten everyone.
