VIGOR AND VITALITY
Like all the books in the Astrology Cookbook Series, the recipes in the Aries book are comprised of food ingredients ruled by the sign of Aries. Aries is the first sign in the zodiac and rules the new. Always opening new doors, Aries can find adventure in the creating, preparing, and eating of foods that are new to them. Ruled by Mars, and the first of three Fire signs, Aries eaters are attracted to extreme tastes in food: pungent, hot and spicy. Anything grilled, toasted, broiled, or seared is an Arian touch.
The sign of Taurus represents consistency and familiarity. The Taurus book contains foods and recipes that tend to be cultural favorites. Taurus rules the five senses: taste, smell, sight, feel, sound. Taurus prefers to dine with all the senses comfortably fulfilled. Taurus rules nature, and dining al fresco enhances a meal for them. All the recipes in this book contain ingredients that are specific to the sign of Taurus and are designed for the Taurus cook and eater.
VARIETY FOR THE PALETTE
For Gemini, the sign of communications, local connections, and close friends in small informal groups, eating is enhanced by conversation, as the exchange of ideas is the focus of Gemini. Being the sign of versatility, Gemini likes to try different local delicacies from diners, cafes, food carts, food bars, and local restaurants. Discussions are important to Gemini and they can enjoy talking, reading, learning, and teaching about food as much as eating it. All the recipes in this book include ingredients ruled by Gemini.
The fourth sign in the zodiac, Cancer, rules the stomach and the breasts. Naturally comforting, good tasting food and dairy products are highlighted in this book. Of the three astrology signs directly related to food (Taurus, Cancer and Virgo), Cancer is # 1. As the nurturer of the zodiac, Cancer loves to mother and aim to please people through their stomach. They tend to be intuitive cooks who tend to be quite creative in the kitchen, putting together comforting meals.
EXPENSIVE & EXTRAVAGANT
Leo the sign of royalty, and ‘fit for a King or Queen’, is ruled by the Sun. The lion loves the best, wants to have fun, can be generous and tolerant, and loves to shine. Leo will take pains to have, do, and present the best. Enjoying the company of others is a Leo specialty and eating a meal, especially in a party-like atmosphere that’s fun, is fulfilling to them. A sign of leadership, a Leo will be in charge in the kitchen and has a very artistic approach to the cooking and creating of food. High-end and golden foods are highlighted in this book.
CLEAN, TIDY & NUTRITIOUS
The sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo, is all about preparation, efficiency, and health. They have a very detailed specific order to their preparation and presentation of the meal. No food detail is overlooked and are particular about the ingredients at hand. ‘Be prepared’ is their motto. Virgo rules the part of the body that assimilates the usable energy from our food. It is one of the three food signs (along with Taurus and Cancer) and this sign rules foods which are good for our human maintenance: organic, local, raw, non-GMO foods, and grass-fed free-range meats. These foods may not initially be as appealing to taste buds as others that are high in processed sugar. Grains and other Mercurian foods are predominant on the list.
BEAUTIFUL & BALANCED
Libra, another of the social zodiac signs, is ruled by Venus, which happens to be the ruler of all sweet things. Libras tend to enjoy having others be involved with the creating, preparing, or eating of their meals. The discussion of the meal can be as important as its presentation. A Libra enjoys sweets in the form of fruits as well as confections high in sugar. As a lover of beauty, looking good is a goal in the presentation of a Libra chef’s meal. Edible flowers, also ruled by Libra, are often part of the dining experience both on the table and in the food. A pleasing and harmonious environment to go along with the food means more enjoyment for Libra.
FOODS THAT BITE BACK
Hidden, phallic, and pungent (in the form of stinky, strong tasting) foods are the type ruled by Scorpio. If a Scorpio invites you for dinner it means you have passed their exacting tests. Scorpio, ruled by the planet Pluto, never takes anything lightly or superficially. Their involvement is always deep and intense. If they are foodies it’s all the way for them. Being the ruler of transformation, Scorpio enjoys fermented foods, those that are hard to find, and ingredients with a sexual shape or connotation. They can bring passion to the creation, preparation, and enjoyment of food.
A sign of diversity, variety and expansion, Sagittarius’ curiosity extends beyond the local to the foreign: an interest in the foods of other cultures, countries, and areas. Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius, is the largest planet in our solar system. This gives Sagittarius a tendency to expand beyond reasonable boundaries with food, and eating large portions. On the flip side, Sagittarius is a sign of action and activity, loves sports and outdoors and can hike, bike, swim, and ride the excess away easily.
DEEP, DARK & DRY
The 10th sign of the zodiac, Capricorn rules responsibility. They like to run things and decide for everyone and runs a very tight ship in the kitchen and at the table. But it also means the responsibility of eating right which includes foods for strong bones and teeth. Foods high in calcium are especially good for a Capricorn. Quality in their food is important. Capricorn’s rulership extends over a large array of winter crops: especially root vegetables and dark leafy greens. Being a traditionalist and at times conservative, they also like foods that relate to their personal ancestry.
NEW ADVENTURES WITH FOOD
A modern approach to eating. The sign of Aquarius rules new discoveries and new types of preparations, presentations and ingredients in a meal. It rules all modern, GMO and hybrid foods. Any recipe that is modified to be upgraded or modernized is Aquarian. Additionally, Aquarius rules new trends and fads in foods and diets. A scientific approach to altering food by sphering, foaming, suspending, emulsifying, or stacking is an Aquarian trait.
CATCH OF THE DAY
Watery Neptune, ruler of the sea, is the planet synonymous with Pisces. This gives Pisces rulership over everything from the sea. It also rules water fowl and most all white foods. Since Pisces is a watery sign, it rules juicy and gelatinous foods, as well as all fluids in general. Pisces has to do with the meditative or no mind state and rules all addictive foods and beverages. This intuitive state can give Pisces the tendency to visualize their meals and to put them together on the spur of the moment, depending on what they feel like. They don’t tend to plan ahead to far in advance.
