This year we've have already been scared enough by the economy, the job market and politicians. So, rather than being scared for Halloween, I have devised some ideas for costumes based on the individual sun signs that may lighten things up a little.
Aires-Red is the color associated with Aires, and since you're a devil anyway you may as well dress as one. Aires are known for their flashy personalities, so perhaps you could go as a red convertible.
Taurus-Taurus is stereotyped as a Mother earth type, and the color is green. You're probably just an old hippie anyway, so drag out those bell-bottoms, and if you live in Oregon perhaps you can carry a joint. Or, alternatively you could be the Jolly Green Giant.
Gemini-Gemini's are known as the twins, so it's a given that you will have to somehow dress as two of you. You can pretend your friends are having double vision.
Cancer-The moon maiden. This might present a pretty picture, and Cancer's are known for their culinary skills. Perhaps you could go as a nice plate of pasta attached to Martha Stewart.
Leo-The lion..humm..that's too simple. Leo's are known for their golden mane's so, perhaps a lion with really, really long blond hair? Or since the Sun is associated with Leo you could wear a blinding gold costume and be the Sun.
Virgo-Known as the Virgin. Dare I say it? Would you go dressed in a chastity belt?
Libra-Libra's are all about relationships. So, you may go as yourself, but with a very large entourage of the opposite sex (or same sex) trailing behind you. You could be a Siamese twin, and never alone.
Scorpio-The God's/Goddess of Sex. This opens up a large can of worms. Perhaps you might dress as a lady of the evening or her pimp? Or since there is a dark side to Scorpio you may prefer a she devil, or you could be a voodoo doll with pins sticking out.
Sagittarius- The Golden Archer. Well, the actual image of a Sag is a creature who is half man, and half horses ass. And don't forget to point your bow and arrow toward the moon.
Capricorn-The goat. Let's see..actual goats don't smell very good. You could dress as a goat and y crest a mix of some really bad perfumes. Or, if you want to get literal, you could create your own mix by visiting a barnyard. Your friends would be speechless. Or if you want to scare people go as Ted Cruz. He is a 0 degree Cap.
Aquarius- The water bearer. It's hard to find urns to pour from today, and they are expensive, but you could embrace your sign by lugging around 2,000 bottles of water as a reminder. Or since Uranus is one of the planets associated with Aquarius, the planet of sudden explosive events, you could go as a train wreck since that is generally the result of a hard Uranus transit.
Pisces-The fish. Which are you? A minnow, a carp, a trout? Perhaps there is actually a shark lurking inside you with big teeth. Oh, and there needs to somehow be two of you swimming in opposite directions. Pisces rules Neptune, the planet of confusion, delusion and uncertainty. Confused, Schizophrenic fish would swim in opposite directions.
