Who doesn't love Halloween -- a night where you can kick back, have a blast, and be someone else for the night? Whether you're a chill-on-the-couch type or consider yourself a ghost hunter, look no further than your host's zodiac sign to find a fright night fete that will strike your fancy.

Aries zodiac sign

Rams are the most likely to go all out for a Halloween bash. Expect their dwelling to be transformed into a haunted house, a scary movie to be playing on the DVD player, and "The Monster Mash" to be coming out of the speakers. And don't even think about showing up sans costume -- your host is likely to either send you home to change, or they will usher you into a back room full of outfits and pick one out in your size. This sign may be bossy, but they just want everyone to have a good time, and it usually works!

Taurus zodiac sign

Bulls want only the best of everything, so expect plenty of luxuries at their bash. There won't be any paper decorations and candy corn at this sign's Halloween party. You should expect fancy hors d'oeuvres with expensive ingredients, Godiva chocolates, and punch made with the finest spirits and liqueurs. Taureans may not be able to get actual ghosts and demons to show up and spook their guests, but they'll definitely try to scare up some ghouls for the big night.

Gemini zodiac sign

Geminis aren't likely to throw a horror-movie extravaganza for Halloween -- this chatty sign couldn't get through one movie without talking, let alone a whole marathon! A "Ghost Story Gala" theme would be more this sign's speed. Picture a crowd (a big one, since Geminis like to be surrounded by people) telling their favorite scariest tales around a fire. Or better yet, acting them out … in costume.

Cancer zodiac sign

Crabs would never throw an adults-only Halloween bash. Expect the whole family to be present: parents, kids, extended family members, and tons of friends who Cancer also considers family. This nurturing sign will have no shortage of food and drinks, either. Not only will they have enough candy on hand to feed the neighborhood kids ten times over, but they'll also have low-fat treats for the adults who are watching their weight, sugar-free snacks for the diabetics in the house, and alcohol-free ale for those who are driving.

Leo zodiac sign

Lions love big bashes full of pomp and circumstance. If you go to a Halloween party at a Leo's house, expect a Renaissance-style masquerade ball that's full of elaborate masks, cinched waists, and puffy sleeves and skirts. You should also expect your host to stay in character all night, channeling Marie Antoinette or Alexander the Great. This sign probably thinks of themselves as royalty anyway, so they're likely to play the part more than convincingly.

Virgo zodiac sign

A Virgo knows that the essentials to any good party are food, beverages, and decorations. They aren't likely to go overboard, but they will be well-stocked. They're also excellent party planners, knowing that costume contests and karaoke are more crowd-pleasing activities than standing around the punch bowl. Expect a standard Halloween bash from this sign -- but with the right pacing, enough activities, and plenty of healthy snacks mixed in with expected fright-night fare.

Libra zodiac sign

Libras are extra-sensitive to the needs of others, wanting to please as many people as possible. This sign is the least likely to impose a costume rule, understanding that not everyone is comfortable dressing up. Instead, a Libra would be a likely proponent of a costume optional party. Or, for a fun twist, they could throw a "Dress up From the Neck Up" bash where attendees could show up in something as simple as a baseball hat or go all out with face paints, fake eyelashes, and wigs.

Scorpio zodiac sign

Scorpios love a theme party (the darker the theme, the better), and Halloween is most likely their favorite night of the year. These folks have a twisted sense of humor, so they might urge you to come dressed as your favorite horror movie character. Don't skimp on the sex appeal with your costume, either -- this sign is as sexy as it is dark. Expect your host to show up at the door dressed like Elvira or the title character from "The Crow" -- and expect a night full of surprises!

Sagittarius zodiac sign

This sign loves adventure, so expect that theme to be featured strongly in their Halloween bash. A typical Sagittarius party might include a suggestion to come dressed as your favorite action-adventure hero like Indiana Jones or Lara Croft, a spooky scavenger hunt around the neighborhood, or an expedition to a nearby rumored real-life haunted house or cemetery. Any party thrown by this sign is sure to be an adrenaline-packed undertaking.

Capricorn zodiac sign

Goats work hard all week, and they like their leisure time to be, well, leisurely. Expect a no-frills affair for Halloween -- a few close friends, a case of beer, popcorn, and a "Nightmare on Elm Street" movie marathon. These folks won't insist that you dress up for the big night, but they won't mock you if you do, either. Expect a chill night will good friends, good conversation, and a lot of laughter.

Aquarius zodiac sign

This sign loves their sci-fi, so expect a space-age theme for their Halloween bash. Think robots, aliens, and technology. This sign also loves working as a team, so a "Best Group Costume" contest will probably be on the menu, along with the edible alien eyeballs (peeled grapes soaked in food coloring) and toxic punch (a bright green tart concoction). So, grab your friends, dress up as a group of zombies, and join in the fun!

Pisces zodiac sign

This sign is symbolized by the Fish, and they love water-related things. Expect an "Under the Sea" Halloween theme, complete with mermaids, water gods, and sea creatures. This sign will also go all out, transforming their space into a dreamy, underwater kingdom. For snacks, it's a sure bet there will be a bowl of Swedish Fish, and the punch will be something blue or green with some oceanic surprises inside.
