As fun as Halloween can be, not everyone enjoys celebrating spooky season in the same way. Some people love seeking out hair-raising thrills and over-the-top parties, while others prefer a more low-key fall activity. To help you pick out the perfect Halloween activity in Seattle for you, we looked to the zodiac! Read on for a spooky recommendation tailored specifically for your sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Lead your friends through a haunted house
Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war, so you’re generally considered one of the bravest signs in the zodiac. So if your friends are down to do a haunted house or corn maze this Halloween, you can take your place at the front of the line as their de facto leader. See our guide to the top scary experiences in Seattle that you can go to this fall.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Attend a haunting candlelight concert
If you’re a Taurus your sign is ruled by Venus, which means you love to surround yourself with beauty and the finer things in life. Some of the darker sides of spooky season probably won’t appeal to you, but a Halloween-inspired candlelight concert is right up your alley. A few tickets are still available for Candlelight: A Haunted Evening of Halloween Classics at Sparkman Cellars on October 18.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Go to a spooky music festival
Geminis love to party! Go big this Halloween by dancing all night to live music at the spooky Boo! Seattle Music Festival at the WAMU Theater on October 27-28.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Take your inner child to the zoo’s pumpkin bash
Sweet, sensitive Cancer. Don’t put yourself through the discomfort of a gory open house or scary movie marathon this Halloween. Instead, head to the Woodland Park Zoo for their annual pumpkin bash on October 28-29. There will be lots of free activities for actual kids, but you can just take your inner child and enjoy watching the zoo animals go to town on their pumpkins.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Win a prize at a costume party
Leo loves to be in the spotlight. Take center stage at one of these Seattle Halloween parties in a clever costume that you had a blast putting together. Just remember not to let it ruin your night if you somehow don’t win first prize in the costume contest.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Check out the Museum of Fright
Seattle’s Museum of Flight is turning itself into the Museum of FRIGHT on October 29. Logical and intelligent Virgo will have a blast at this museum, and you can even wear a costume if you want to tap into your sign’s creative side.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Get cocktails at a spooky bar pop-up
