Do you start planning your Halloween costume in July, even though your trick-or-treating days are long over? You’re probably a Scorpio, says Debra Silverman, yogi Seane Corn’s astrologer and the author of The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition. “It’s no coincidence that Scorpio is during the month of Halloween—they love it,” Silverman explains. Not only does your sign determine how much you love (or hate) Halloween, it also plays a role in the costume you choose. Whether you’re going as Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, or Wonder Woman, “the costume you wear is likely an exaggerated version of your personality type,” she adds.

Still not sure what to be on Oct. 31st? Consult the following cheat sheet to find a costume that’s in sync with your sign.

Don’t be surprised to see Taurus in a Hillary Clinton pantsuit. Taurus doesn’t like to show off and tends to choose a frumpy, basic costume, Silverman explains. “Taurus is super old-fashioned, grounded, and normal,” she says. Warning: Taurus-as-Hillary might get more attention than she’d like this year—there’s never been a more exciting time to wear a pantsuit!
