Because this year's goblins, ghosts and ghouls are ruled by the Aquarian moon, they are sure to be friendly and creative. The night will be heavier on the bright ideas and giggles than it will be on frights. The social opportunities are rich. Meeting one another in the context of costume will bring about unexpected interactions.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll approach social life with the glee of a child setting out to trick-or-treat. Halloween alter ego: Ruled by Mars, the warrior planet, you are a natural-born Guardian of the Galaxy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll dress up and work the room, collecting the loot in the form of opportunities, contacts and goodies untold! Halloween alter ego: The sign of the bull should go as a horned creature like the devil or Maleficent.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your generosity raises the bar for all. Halloween alter ego: Your sunny "everything is awesome" outlook goes perfectly with the characters from "The Lego Movie."
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're on an emotional high, and everyone around you gets a contact high from you. Halloween alter ego: In keeping with your water-sign nature, you could cool it down as a character from Disney's "Frozen."
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Build some quiet moments into the controlled chaos of the day. Halloween alter ego: Like the lion, you are a hunter. Go as one, as in a character from "The Hunger Games" or the Huntsman from "Snow White and the Huntsman."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be in an inquisitive and mischievous mood. Halloween alter ego: Your Mercury-ruled technical acuity makes you the perfect one to honor technology such as Google Glass or the iPhone 6 with your costume.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don't waste time on decisions -- flip a coin. Halloween alter ego: You will be a smash hit when you draw from the world of politics: Obama in a tan suit, Gov. Chris Christie or a pregnant Chelsea Clinton.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are in your prime. Live it up. Halloween alter ego: As the sign of transformation, a character who changes form, perhaps from the film "Transformers" or a werewolf, vampire or the like, would be perfect.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Before you can share the glory, you have to let others share in the duties. Halloween alter ego: Characters from the epic fantasy "Game of Thrones" capture your otherworldly spirit of adventure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you're intrinsically responsible, you'll have to push yourself to say "no." Halloween alter ego: Honor your winter birthday by playing a character from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People are full of ideas and advice for you, though you'll be very happy to defer to your original plans. Halloween alter ego: As the sign of the future, a character from a futuristic movie like "Divergent" would be cool.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have an obvious connection with an intriguing someone, and you both feel it. Halloween alter ego: If you want to keep it simple, honor your water-sign element with a bucket on your head: the Ice Bucket Challenge.
