What Halloween Costume Your Pet Should Wear Based On Your Sign

Halloween might be a great excuse to channel our inner Ghostbuster or Harley Quinn, but humans aren’t the only ones who should be allowed to join in the festivities. Maybe your fur baby wants an opportunity to do their best Batman impression too. And, why shouldn’t they get it? They probably look cuter in their costumes than most people do.

The National Retail Federation estimates that Americans spend about $350 million a year on Halloween costumes for pets, which might sound pretty ridiculous to some people, but I dressed my mom’s chihuahua up as a hot dog last year, so I’m not really in a position to judge.

Choosing a costume for your pet isn’t easy, but pets reveal a lot about their owners, so it makes sense to base your choice on something that speaks to who you really are: your astrological sign. In order to help you narrow down your fur baby costume options, I consulted with Berry’s resident astrologer Maressa Brown. Here, some of the best picks for your pet—based on your sign.

Sagittarians are associated with the 9th house, which deals with higher learning. That means you could DIY an easy pet toga for your furry philosopher. Or, you could go for a more modern take on higher learning and dress your cat or dog up like a doctor.

Capricorns are ambitious AF and, in an election year, that can only mean one thing: Your pet needs to be the president. Or, maybe you can be president, and the pet can be VP. Either way, you need this in your life.

Pisces is a water sign, which means their pets would make great fish or mermaids. But, the best option is really this beach bum costume, because, let’s be honest, smoking a sweet indica by the water with your fur friend by your side is probably what you really want to be doing RN.
