If you’re into astrology, you have probably consulted the stars to see what they can say about your day, month, year, and love life. Even if you’re not into it, you still know what it’s all about. But what if you could go to the stars for guidance on some more serious matters like food? I present to you, your official food-o-scope.
Aries: March 21st- April 19th
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac so it is only appropriate that their meal be something original and classic. Nothing holds an Aries back. They are quick, bold, competitive and as their element is fire, just a little spicy. These characteristics remind us a lot of pizza. Everyone loves a nice big, greasy, cheesy slice of pizza. You just better hope delivery doesn’t take too long, because an Aries can be very impatient. If you’re trying to get a nice New York slice, here’s your guide to local Bronx pizza places.
Taurus: April 20th- May 20th
A Taurus is a hard worker, strong, and dependable. They do not mind working hard and long to reach a widely worth-it goal. This makes them a great candidate for a meal that has many steps, takes a while, but extremely worth it in the end. The kind of meal like a rich and savory, juicy cut of beef. The slower it cooks, the better the flavor. However be careful because a Taurus can be very stubborn and is not like a fan of change, especially when it comes to food. Keep it simple with this recipe for a homemade steak dinner.
Gemini: May 21st- June 20th
Versatility is the perfect characteristic for this dual sign of twins. Gemini prosper in busy environments where they can chat and gossip about the latest news. They are outgoing, flirtatious, talkative, and always ready for fun. This makes a Gemini the perfect person to have over for a dinner party. What better food to serve at a dinner party than finger food? Some boneless buffalo wings would be great for this sign. Learn how to make your own here.
Cancer: June 21st- July 22nd
Cancer is a very emotional and sentimental sign. They thrive in comfortable and cozy environments such as curling up at home by a fire.

Add some bacon or mushrooms to the mix to make it extra yummy. Here are some other ways to spice up your mac and cheese.
Leo: July 23rd- August 22nd

Virgo: August 23rd- September 22nd
With a great attention to detail, this earth element also pays a great amount of attention to their health.

Scorpio: October 23rd- November 21st
Mysterious and attracted to the unknown, Scorpio people are not very upfront with their emotions. Don’t be fooled though, there is a lot going on underneath. They have quite the love affair with food and their tastebuds are much more complex than any other sign. It is common for their mystery to show in their food as well. A cupcake with a surprise filling is just the right amount of surprise for a Scorpio. Check out these Boston Cream Pie cupcakes with a delicious filling here.
Sagittarius: November 22nd- December 21st

Capricorn: December 22nd- January 19th
Capricorn is one of the more professional and practical of all the signs. They leave no stone unturned and tackle life conventionally.

Therefore a yummy, earth-grown, healthy sweet potato with butter and cinnamon is the most delightful snack for this sign. Here’s a great sweet potato recipe.
Aquarius: January 20th- February 18th
Aquarius people are very deep thinkers. They turn everything into a science project. When solving problems they tune into their intuition and pair it with hard logic.

They will appreciate the do it yourself aspect and the geek in them will think the fondu pot is cool as well. Check out these chocolate covered strawberries that will surely blow your mind.
Pisces: February 19th- March 20th
Pisces are easy going and can often find themselves mingling with many different types of personalities. They are understanding, accepting of others and put their hearts into anything they take on.
