Halloween Costumes & Astrology – Your Best Costume by the Stars – Mercury
October 24, 2007 by Nina Gryphon
Halloween costumes are a tough decision. Luckily, astrology is here to help you find the costume that best expresses your true personality (we’ll let others decide whether that is a good or bad thing). This article is the third in a series on Halloween costumes in the horoscope.
Our method is to find the ruling planet in your chart, i.e.: the planet that rules your Ascendant, and find your optimal costume based on its sign placement. Our previous two articles focused on Mars (ruling Aries and Scorpio Ascendants), and Venus (ruling Taurus and Libra rising). Note that we only use traditional rulers for this series.
Today, we will talk about those of you with Mercury ruling the chart, which category includes anyone with Gemini or Virgo rising.
Mercury in Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius (the fire signs) – runner, doctor (esp. in Aries, also Scorpio), bicyclist, F1 driver, archer (esp. for Sagittarius), courtier (very Mercury in Leo).
Mercury in Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn (the earth signs) – stock trader, accountant, human calculator/pencil/computer.
Mercury in Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius (the air signs) – lawyer, writer, scientist (extra points if mad), singer (especially for Mercury in Libra), messenger, astrologer or fortuneteller.
Mercury in Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces (the water signs) – Poet (maybe one of the Romantic poets), sailor, actor (very meta-meta!).
