Halloween approacheth, stargazers. We wish we could say we knew
exactly how the cosmos will affect your All Hallows' Eve, but that's up to the Astrotwins. Where we can help you is in selecting your all-important costume.
Geminis need something attention-grabbing. Virgos tend to like their costumes a little more straightforward. Leos want to be the life of the party. And, of course, mysterious Scorpios need to keep things spooky.
Ahead, we've determined the best costumes for every sign in the zodiac. They're so accurate, you'll believe they're written in the stars.

Taurus Your costume type:
The History Buff
We have to assume that you, Taurus, aren't one for trendy costumes. Your sign loves high-quality, even luxury, goods, and your Halloween costume is no exception. Seek out a well-made outfit with accurate historical details (Bulls don't mind splurging every once in a while, right?). If you

Leo Your costume type:
You're the star of your own life, Leo, so why not run with that idea for Halloween? Your natural star power (who
