Halloween 2020 is a Halloween like no other. For one, of course, we’re
still in a pandemic. But besides adding a matching mask to this year’s costume, this year’s Halloween doubles as a day of spooky fun and the rare Blue Full Moon in Taurus, the second powerful Full Moon this month. With the Blue Full Moon in security-driven and affectionate Taurus reaching its peak and opposing the sultry and secretive Sun in Scorpio at around 10:50 AM EST on October 31, Halloween morning begins with a jolt. Uranus, the planet of innovation and change, will challenge the Sun in Scorpio around 11:53 AM EST, so you can anticipate being greeted with an unexpected trick-or-treat surprise bright and early — nothing will go as planned. Rather than having solid plans for Halloween this year, loosen up and try to go with the flow. With the Moon waxing full in Venus-ruled Taurus until November 1, think comfort, intimacy, and close friends. Save the big parties and witch circles for another year.
Aries March 21 to April 19
If you are tempted to go all out for Halloween this year, Aries, reconsider. The rare
Blue Full Moon in Taurus is urging you to minimize and think sustainably. With the Full Moon in your second house of self-worth and personal finances, you’re more eager to tap into your inner power and personal possessions. But remember that you don’t have to break the bank to do it. This is a day of showing up and showing out as the true you — no enormous budget required. If you are feeling festive and want to tap into the spooky Halloween spirit, perhaps you should dress up as your favorite role model or superhero character (maybe even the future version of yourself). Uranus, the speedy planet of change, encourages you to switch things up and try something new. And as the Sun in empowering Scorpio deepens its transit in your eighth house of mystery and death, no more pulling out old costumes (or relationships)! Let the past be the past. Dive deep and ask yourself: What costumes best displays the real me? What costume best displays my inner powers and gifts? Photographed by Megan Madden.
Taurus April 20 to May 20
If anyone is feeling the Halloween vibe today, it’s you, Taurus. I mean, today is the day that the
rare Blue Moon in Taurus occurs in your sign, bringing illumination to your deepest desires, emotions, and personal goals. With the Taurus Full Moon in your first house of self and identity today, all eyes are on you this Halloween — so give them a show! Whether you decide to spend the day trick-or-treating COVID-style, logging into a Zoom costume party, hosting an intimate gathering with friends from your social pod, or planning a night in with your nearest and dearest, make sure you spend time around someone, perhaps your closest sidekick or your current bae. With the Sun in sexy Scorpio highlighting your seventh house of partnerships and marriage, a spell for love may be granted by night’s end — if that’s what you’re looking for. Just keep an open mind and an open heart because Uranus, the planet of change, may wreak havoc on your plans. Have a plan B just in case. Photographed by Megan Madden.
Gemini May 21 to June 20
It’s no secret that Halloween is everyday for you, Gemini. You are always dressing up and altering your personality. I mean, you are the sign of twins and alter egos after all. But this year, Halloween may not be as social or lively as you would like it to be. With the
Blue Full Moon in Taurus spotlighting your twelfth house of endings and solitude, opt-out of any social invitations and spend time at home. With the Sun in Scorpio bringing focus to your sixth house of work and daily routines, you’ll be looking forward to the festive weekend so you can relax and spend some time with yourself. Use the spooky vibes to get in touch with your shadow. Photographed by Megan Madden.
Cancer June 21 to July 22
All eyes are on you and your dynamic crew this Halloween, Cancer. No matter what your plans are, whether it’s hosting a COVID-friendly outdoor party or crashing your bestie’s spooky Zoom gathering, you and your friends will be the stars of the show. With
the Full Moon in Taurus reigning supreme in your eleventh house of friendships, teamwork, and collaboration, you may want to coordinate costumes with your boo or dress up as a group. If coupled or looking to mingle, things may heat up as the Sun in sultry Scorpio ignites your fifth house of passion, pleasure, and ego. Rather than pulling out a traditional costume, get creative and think outside the box. What can you create that will make everyone’s jaw drop as soon as you walk in the room — or turn on your camera, if you’re sticking to a virtual get-together this year? Photographed by Megan Madden.
Leo July 23 to August 22
Leo! Are you ready for the cosmic boost this magical day and night has in store? For starters, you may have to pry yourself away from your desk and work to enjoy the festivities, but do yourself a favor and give yourself a break. Have you been neglecting your friends or putting off having a good time? If yes, allow the Full Moon in Taurus to remind you what it feels like to let loose and have genuine fun. With the Full Moon illuminating your tenth house of public reputation and career, you may be hosting a work Zoom happy hour or celebrating an unexpected promotion. But those festivities likely aren’t the start of a wild night out. The Sun in mysterious Scorpio is highlighting your fourth house of home, privacy, and family, making a quiet Halloween game night seem more appealing to you this year. Photographed by Megan Madden.
Virgo August 23 to September 22
Are you doing the same thing you do every year for Halloween, Virgo? Probably not, which is a good thing, because the day’s energy encourages you to get outside of your comfort zone and start a new trick-or-treating tradition. And yes, that goes for your costume too. No more pulling out the same one you’ve worn for the past three years. With the Full Moon in Venus-ruled Taurus lighting up your ninth house of travel and adventure, you could be (safely) exploring a new city and town, or if you have the resources and time, going away on a short,
COVID-friendly road trip. Whatever the case, do something different Virgo. If looking for Halloween-related activities, though, try your local spots. Is your city hosting a socially distanced jack-o-lantern tour, or an outdoor haunted forest? With the Sun in Scorpio transiting your third house of locality and neighbors, the party you’re looking for could be right next door Photographed by Megan Madden.
Libra September 23 to October 22
Do you have plans to get cozy with your SO for Halloween, Libra, or are you thinking about having a self-care night in? Whatever you are planning for this magical night of warlocks and witches, know that
the energy is and ripe for the taking — if you’re into dark games that is. With the Full Moon in intimate Taurus highlighting your eighth house of sexuality and emotional intensity all day today, expect a love matter or financial situation to get you in your feelings. So instead of letting the unexpected ruin your mood, think ahead, and plan a relaxing activity that gets you out of your head. If you’re thinking about dressing up this year, choose the costume that makes you feel your very best. Just make sure it’s on a budget. The Sun in Scorpio transiting your second house of income and assets says, it may be all fun now, but you’ll regret your impulsive purchases later. Spend wisely! hot Photographed by Megan Madden.
Scorpio October 23 to November 21
If you thought this Halloween would be a quiet night in, you’ve got another thing coming for you, Scorpio. With the Full Moon in Taurus highlighting your seventh house of partnerships today, you, dear Scorpio, are in hot demand. Whether it’s heading out for a private graveyard stroll with your love or meeting up with a close, COVID-free friend for a safe night of
love spells, haunted games, and bloody drinks, there will be little time for you today. If you’re looking to spend some quality time with yourself, wake up early and do so before the Full Moon reaches its peak at around 10:50 A.M. EST. Your phone will be ringing off the hook after that. If feeling a little down, pull out your materials, and throw together your best DIY costume. You will be shocked at how quickly and effortlessly it all comes together. Photographed by Megan Madden.
Sagittarius November 22 to December 21
Just because you’re focusing on your health and financial wellness doesn’t mean you can’t give in to a few Halloween festivities, Sagittarius. Letting your guard down and opening up to the unexpected opportunities that come under today’s energies is your best bet. With the Full Moon in responsible Taurus highlighting your
sixth house of work and routines all day today, you may have trouble getting your mind off of work or the leftover chores still waiting to be checked off your to-do list. But when was the last time you had fun just for the fun of it? With the Sun in Scorpio highlighting your twelfth house of healing and completion, wrap up a project early so you can clock out and snag a few hours of rested fun, Sag. Don’t let your fears and overthinking steal all the joy! If wellness is a concern (we know, sugar!), use some creativity to whip up treats that are delish and good for you. Your trick-or-treaters will be taken back at first, but once they taste your goodies they will be glad they stopped by. Photographed by Megan Madden.
Capricorn December 22 to January 19
Happy Halloween, Capricorn! What’s one thing you wanted to be growing up, but were never allowed to dress up as or were too afraid to try? If you know the answer to that question, indulge your inner child and be that person this year for Halloween. With the Full Moon in Taurus highlighting your fifth house of children, pleasure, and creativity, you could be pulling out your sewing machine and
making your costume from scratch. And if you’re a parent, you are probably dressing up in matching or related costumes to trick-or-treat COVID-style with the little ones in your life. If feeling festive, perhaps you should try hosting a game night or coordinating a late-night spooky (and socially distanced) stroll with friends. With the Sun in Scorpio highlighting your eleventh house of friendships, you’ll want to do things as a group rather than flying solo. So, get ready and call your tribe! The ghosts and goblins are waiting. Photographed by Megan Madden.
Aquarius January 20 to February 18
Events may not go as planned for you this Halloween, Aquarius. But how things
do come together may be just as or even more special than what you’d been imagining. Try to remember this as you move through your day. Because with the Full Moon in Taurus highlighting your fourth house of Home, emotional security, and family, this Halloween could be an interesting combination of joyful frolics and nightmarish meltdowns — it just depends on who you are with and where you are. To avoid unwanted skeletons coming out of your closet, be extra mindful, and sensitive to your surroundings. With the Sun in Scorpio highlighting your tenth house of career and reputation, work may be stressing you out. If possible, step away from the drama at the office and focus on you. What do you need on this magical night to fill your cup? Photographed by Megan Madden.
Pisces February 19 to March 20
Happy Halloween, Pisces! Are you ready for the excitement and curiosity this spooky day will bring? If you thought you knew what you were doing today, your plans will probably change three times before night’s end. Wondering why you’re in such a hurry today? You can blame the rushed energy on the super-potent Taurus Full Moon. With the Taurus Full Moon highlighting your
third house of communication and transportation, your neighbors, friends, and siblings (if you have them) will want to be included in your plans, and because of this, you will be hurrying from one location to the next. Rather than saying yes and committing to everyone in advance, play it cool and take it one commitment at a time. Do not overwhelm yourself, Pisces! Remember, you do not owe anyone anything, and during the pandemic, you have every reason in the world to limit your social events. Keep your options open. Photographed by Megan Madden.
