Horoscope: Oct. 31

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you didn't know better, you'd say someone is trying to egg you on! Aries people who dress up will be stunning in a costume that highlights the warrior spirit.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Halloween is just the excuse you needed to get glamorous and over-the-top. If you don't do it by dressing up, you'll do it with daring attitude.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Much depends on which twin you listen to: the mischievous one or the reasonable one. Tonight, a costume that reflects your sense of humor is favored.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Celebrate your moon ruler by being a frighteningly fun part of the Halloween festivities. You might even wear more than one costume today!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll touch people with your words if it's not appropriate to touch them with a hug. If dressing up, you'll be a hit as the superhero you are most like or the villain you are most unlike.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your moral compass is unfailing, which is good because you'll have to guide someone who is directionless. If dressing up, you'll be a hit in a choice that's outrageous and/or out of this world.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When the spotlight swings to you, you'll be ready for it. If you dress up, your natural artistry will shine as a pop star or a famous actor.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's a lot you want to pursue, and you're not sure what to do first. If you dress up tonight, an animal costume will put you in touch with your wild side.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

You'll be required to communicate with someone who either figuratively or actually doesn't speak the same language. Tonight, dressing up as something very large or very small will enhance your perspective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may really feel like your ancestors are with you or are trying to communicate something important to you. If you dress up, you'll be a hit as an eerie ghost.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The day is marked by a nostalgia that carries into the night. If you dress up, consider wearing something that represents a childhood fantasy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll enjoy thinking about all that has gone on in your life and times and how different it is from any era before you. If you dress up, historical or retro costumes will suit you best.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 31). The year features new passions and desires. You may grow in distinctly different ways from a partner, but this only serves to connect you more deeply. Reinvest the spoils of a lucrative December into some April business. Let tasteful people advise your lifestyle upgrade in January. February's ceremony will be beautiful. Leo and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 23, 25, 16 and 50.
