Astrology as a Recipe for Life & the Kitchen

Astrology as a Recipe for Life & the Kitchen

To master cooking, you must know certain principles; to enjoy cooking you must know thyself.

Technique is important in the kitchen for it provides you with the means to execute certain necessary tasks. Knowing a recipe is also good, for it serves as the instruction sheet to put together ingredients and end up with the final dish. 

However,  I believe there are two more things you need to become exceptional in the kitchen, this goes for professional chefs as well: Passion & Knowledge. Passion is the intensity of the emotion with which you cook; of course, I suggest a good emotion like love, happiness and ardent desire. I am an advocate of doing everything, especially cooking, with passion. 

Knowing why each ingredient is used in a recipe, how to mix and match and how to enhance certain attributes of one with the addition of another, is what makes a regular dish a great one. It is also what may differentiate you from being a just-because-you-have-to daily cook from a great magician in the kitchen. Using this principle can also be useful in life.

Astrology is like a recipe, with ingredients and ways to incorporate them, to make life better. At least that is how I look at it. If you go on saying: I am a Gemini and because of it, I am supposed to behave this way, you may be doing yourself a disservice. Instead, learn about your natal chart, learn about other signs, what makes them strong, what makes them not so strong and use these components to create a life that will be more wholesome, satisfying and loving. 

Here are some eating characteristics of each sign. Read them all and create your own recipe for success.

ARIES 

While you love meat, try to cut back. Yes, you can eat everything served to you, and normally do.  Focus on hot and spicy foods. You love savory over sweet, but chocolate makes you break the rule. Try to eat slower and relax when you do.

TAURUS 

Pasta and pizza may be your favorite. Oh, and  you like the pizza with all the toppings.  You like sweets a lot. You must have a dish well presented and that speaks of prosperity. A simple dish may make you feel poor and you hate that. You are foodie and a true gourmet but do it for the right reasons and not just to feel wealthy.

GEMINI 

You love to eat, but you prefer things to nibble over large plates. A dish with a little of this and a little of that, like a charcuterie plate, is perfect for you. You prefer half an apple, three cookies, two slices of cheese and a little jam on the side all at once. 

CANCER 

When you are in love you tend to overeat. This causes you to be in a bad mood, so do not exceed your food intake. Desserts and chocolate are your escape and you must have them regularly; a sweet bite does wonders for you. You get bored with the same food and demand variety. 

LEO

When it comes to asking for sweet cocktails, you are the master. An Appletini or a Daiquiri are always in hand. Sweet wine is your favorite, too. You enjoy food well presented and love beef, that is well cooked. When you are dining with friends, overindulging may happen as exhibiting your prowess. Yes, you like to show off by eating more and drinking more than the rest. Watch for that behavior.

VIRGO

The eternal dieter of the Zodiac, you know about nutrition, vitamins, supplements. You are also well balanced with your diet and constantly strive to remain on track, but sometimes you go overboard. Have a cookie once in a while; have one that will make you close your eyes in utter delight. 

LIBRA

Beauty and health play an important part when deciding what to eat. You love salads, fruit and light snacks. However, being the balanced person you are, you tend to keep it simple. Candy and a good meal at a restaurant are a good way to reward yourself. However, you tend to go overboard with these rewards and when you do, you cannot stop and end up doing rushed, hard diets.

SCORPIO 

You long for rich dishes, spices, even chili. Your prefer a beautiful plate with tons of good food over molecularly based, fine dining dishes . You certainly love to eat and do it with pleasure. 

SAGITTARIUS 

Exotic food and international cuisine are your favorites. If you are a male, watch your weight, for you tend to eat without regard of how many calories you consume. On the other hand, women tend to care for their silhouette and like to keep track of caloric consumption. 

CAPRICORN 

You balance your sweet and savory meals. Meat and pork you like with measure, but textures may be more important when deciding what you love the most. Things that are soft or creamy, like soups or tapioca pudding are not your favorite items. A great host for any friend, you can always whip up an impromptu get-together with some great food and wine.

AQUARIUS 

You say you feed yourself correctly, but you don't. Late at night or even in the early hours before sunrise, you sneak to the kitchen and eat all you can find, specially sweets, as if you found a treasure room and someone will take it away from you. You are the pantry pirate plundering all you can. 

PISCES 

Mood dictates how and what you eat. You feed yourself well but would kill for dessert and would skip a savory dish for sumptuous sweetness or gelato. Dessert for you is like a celebration of life that protects against evil and prepares you for another day.

Will you eat with the stars?
