If your mantra is “I got hot sauce in my bag swag,” this probably means you’re a fire sign and an overall adventurous eater. We know this might sound out there, but Zodiac signs are like codes and if you can decipher them, they can tell you about your penchants for food. That’s why we’ve gathered everything we know about your zodiac sign to bring you an insider’s look at your food predilections. Those that are good for you and the ones that are not. The astrologer Hazel Dixon-Cooper told The Daily Meal, “by knowing your sun sign, you can better understand your instinctive reaction to food and diet as well as any possible health issues that might arise.” Here’s what your sun sign says about what you will likely be craving and rejecting at the dinner table tonight.
12 Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This fire sign likes to cook it up spicy. They like to add chilies or sriracha sauce to everything. Because they’re on the move, they don’t have time to prepare long meals. Quick meals like fajitas or an Asian hot pot are their specialty. Bad habits? They eat too fast in an effort not to waste time.
11 Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The indulgent bull is the zodiac’s gastronome. Only a finely prepared meal will satisfy them. Dieting is torture for them, while cooking for others, a real pleasure. Comfort and home-style food is usually what they’ll serve you. If you’re a bull, try a gourmet style enchilada dish, for example with the finest ingredients from Mexico or a four cheeses macaroni and cheese creation made from scratch. Their bad habits? Emotional eating.
10 Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Though these airy creative types don’t enjoy eating as much as a Taurus, they like cooking. Their kitchen is a place where creativity can blossom. And their curiosity will allow for dinner parties featuring dishes that combine the world’s ingredients. Think kimchi pancakes for brunch. Since they like to experiment, websites like Epicurious.com, with semi-complicated recipes will appeal to them. Bad habits? Sticking to an eating routine.
9 Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are good competition for grandma’s cooking. They’re famous for their culinary skills and love recipes passed on to them from their family’s traditions. They gravitate to buying organic and high-quality food and no one can pass up an invitation to dine in their home. But people under the Cancer sign are loyal to their favorite foods, so if spaghetti and meatballs or menudo soup is their thing, you’ll eat it a lot. Bad habits? Not controlling their appetites.
8 Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Though Leos like eating at five-star restaurants, they typically don’t like to cook much. Lovers of company at the dining table though, they will take on the challenge to make large family dinners to make their loved ones happy. Expect homemade pizzas with rich toppings like pepperoni and sausage galore and juicy jumbo burgers from the grill. Bad habits? They don’t consume enough fruit and vegetables.
7 Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Although they’re very strict with their personal eating habits, dieting often, they indulge the people they cook for. If you are lucky enough to live with a Virgo chef, expect magical gourmet meals when they have the energy. Their detail-oriented minds allow them to effortlessly whip up homemade curry dishes and homemade sushi in a jiffy. Bad habits? Over-thinking food.
6 Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
These social butterflies love to prepare elaborate banquets for friends and family, but will only eat tiny portions themselves. Lovers of beauty, they tend to be overly concerned with atmosphere in order to truly enjoy their food. Sometimes they pay more attention to the food’s appearance rather than to the details in their dishes. Expect organic greens and fresh salmon with dill sauce and a vegetarian pasta dish. Bad habits? A naughty sweet tooth.
5 Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Dixon Cooper says Scorpios can be adventurous eaters, though they’re also easily frustrated by recipes that don’t meet their expectations. In the kitchen, they’re generous with the spices and gravitate to high-calorie comfort food. Though they don’t care much about cooking, they are excellent cooks because of the concentration they apply. A wild mushroom zucchini lasagna or a rabbit risotto is right up their alley. Bad habits? Alcohol and junk food.
4 Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Fun loving, larger-than-life Sagittarius love serving up buffet style meals for 20 of their closest friends. Since they personally love to sample everything that a Las Vegas buffet has to offer, they believe their dinner parties shouldn’t be any different. Expect an elaborate spread of homemade hummus, pigs in a blanket, vegetable platters, hamburger sliders, chicken fingers, and salmon rolls. And that’s just the appetizer. Bad habits? Overeating.
3 Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Known to be serious, traditional, and organized — but they actually go bonkers over food and cooking! The Daily Meal says Capricorns typically plan meals in advance and have recipes in specific folders. Although they don’t like their food extremely spicy, they sometimes tend to exaggerate with salt. You’ll love their shrimp and linguine fra diavolo and their lamb casserole. Bad habits? Not relaxing at meal times enough.
2 Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
People born under this sign are often vegetarians and prefer low-calorie meals. Their dinner table will probably include a banquet of grilled vegetables, rices, and fresh fruits more than that of protein-rich foods. Following recipes step by step isn’t their thing. They will make changes according to their imagination. One will never be bored at their table. Bad habits? Late-night eating and too much coffee.
1 Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Since the Piscean views food as a social experience they’ll gladly compromise to the dietary preferences of others. So, what do you want? Lasagna? Beef Teriyaki? They’ll prepare it for you with all their creativity and love. Their passionate approach to dining also includes a love for alcohol, so make sure to bring an extra bottle of wine to their dinner party. It will go fast. Bad habits? They don’t drink enough water.
