The stars believe the most detail-oriented zodiac sign needs a Halloween activity to match. Hosting a séance requires focus, attentiveness, and quick thinking, making it the perfect way for Virgo to get in the spooky season spirit.

Astral Tequila is all about brightening connections with your inner circle, which makes it the perfect spirit for your celebration’s cocktails.

Sagittarius is always in the mood for some quality time spent with friends, so the stars suggest having a Halloween movie marathon! Binge watching the Halloween essentials will bring everyone together in an intimate setting ahead of your evening at Vaughan Hall. For something totally terrifying, stock up on Hitchcock classics like Psycho or The Birds, while the less thrill-seeking Sagittarius can opt for some family-friendly fun with Hocus Pocus or Casper. Pour yourself an Astral Tequila cocktail and cheers to a great evening with even better company!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Solve an escape room
For this hard-working, competitive earth sign, the stars think there’s no better way to get in the Halloween spirit than by solving an escape room.
