Here's What Food You Are Based on Your Zodiac SignGetty/Margie Rischiotto

One of the most enticing things about astrology is how our birth charts can illuminate who we truly are. Your Sun sign explains your self-expression, your Moon sign reveals your emotional instincts, and your Rising sign dictates your demeanor and approach to life. Now, it's safe to say that those are all super important components of what makes you, *you.* But let's get even deeper than where your deepest emotional triggers lie, or how you're most likely to express affection. Let's get to the most important element of life itself: Let's discuss food.

This may sound far-fetched, but the core traits of each zodiac sign are well-represented by some of your favorite dishes, and we've gonna ahead and matched the pairings for you. And to take it one step further, if you happen to be in your Nara Smith era, there are also delicious recipes here to help you make your sign's food at home. (Or another sign's dish, if you feel like betraying your birth chart. No judgement, really.) So, read on to find out where you stand food-wise, according to the stars.

Aries: Hot Wings

The first sign of the zodiac is nothing if not bold, honest, and courageous. Therefore, their edible counterpart has to be the same. When you dive into a bucket of hot wings, you already know you’ve signed up for something with a bit of a kick to it, and that’s what dealing with Aries energy is like–they can’t hide their ambition, and moving through life unnoticed isn’t really their thing.

Taurus: Homemade Sourdough Bread

Taureans are arguably some of the most graceful folks that walk among us. Beyond that, they’re super methodical homebodies who don’t need quick satisfaction. They’re okay with putting in the work and staying patient. So, some cozy and delicious homemade sourdough bread represents this sign perfectly. Is it fast or easy to make? Definitely not. But the final product makes all of the effort worth it.

Gemini: Sweet & Savory Stir Fry

This air sign is known for being dynamic and quick-witted. Geminis contain multitudes and maintain the ability to charm any group and fit in with a wide range of crowds. You can sub in a bunch of different veggies and proteins into a good stir fry, and it’ll still hit the spot. Plus, the pan-frying process encapsulates Geminis’ uncontainable energy.

Cancer: Blueberry Muffin

The first trait that’s typically assigned to Cancer is “sensitive,” but they’re so much more! The water sign is also all about comfort, nostalgia, and creativity. In that sense, a cozy batch of muffins, preferably made with love, touches on what makes Cancers so great: How familiar and safe it feels to be around them.

Leo: Classic Cheeseburger

Whether you like it or not, Leos are the center of attention in every room they're in. Typically, this makes them the main event! A classic cheeseburger will always lead the way and make its presence known on any plate, just like bold and fearless Leos.

Virgo: Sushi Roll

This sign is known for perfectionism and poise, and no cuisine upholds those qualities more than sushi does. No matter its form, this is a food that takes presentation seriously while also having layers. Virgos can relate.

Libra: Cupcake

They’re charming, they’re pretty, and they’re keenly aware of what looks good. If any sign in the zodiac deserved to be a dessert, it’s this one. Even on their bad days, Libras know how to put on a brave face and remain as sweet as can be—they’re here to please, and who can say no to cupcakes?

Scorpio: Lasagna

This sign is all about exploring what lies beneath the surface, and if that surface happens to be pasta, then this food analogy works perfectly. As intense, passionate, and powerful as Scorpios can get, there are levels to what they’ll allow the people in their lives to see. Just like the layers in a good lasagna.

Sagittarius: Red Curry

The worldly and vivacious Sagittarius deserves a dish that’s as daring as they are. Their bright and blunt nature helps them stand out, but they’re also gregarious and welcoming. A warm, flavorful red curry will always pack a punch, but it’s best when enjoyed family style.

Capricorn: Steak Frites

Caps hold themselves to a high standard, and they’re typically extremely resourceful trailblazers. That’s what makes steak frites the perfect Cap representation. Sure, it’s simply meat and potatoes, but with a bit of innovation, it’s a fine-dining staple. And Capricorns are all about the finer things.

Aquarius: Fried Pickle

Eccentric Aquas pride themselves on being one of a kind. With that in mind, they have to be food that’s not obvious, basic, or something that you can just grab anywhere. No—independent and forever curious Aquarius needs to be a beloved carnival snack. Not only because their minds are basically funhouses—they’re also full of surprises.

Pisces: Acai Bowl

Artistic and gentle Pisces deserves a dish that requires a bit of creativity. An acai bowl can contain whatever your imagination desires (within the confines of your kitchen’s fruit and granola stock). Pisces folks are all too familiar with dreaminess and endless possibilities.
