Our Moon sign offers a periscope into our emotional nature, what nourishes and nurtures us. It reflects what feeds us, both figuratively and literally. As such, we can get insights into our personal relationship with food as well as our eating habits by turning to our Moon sign. [Don't know your Moon sign? Find out with our calculator, here!]  

Aries
The tendency of the Aries Moon person to not waste any time can carry over to their eating habits, rushing through a meal to get on to the next activity. Some are notorious for skipping a good breakfast, which can have deleterious effects on their energy throughout the day. Spice -- whether enjoying it or avoiding it -- is often on the mind of those with who have this fiery Moon sign.

Taurus
Creatures of habit, Taurus Moon people get into routines and then have a hard time shifting out of them. Therefore, starting a diet or shifting eating patterns doesn't come easily. But when they commit to the change and they get into a new groove, they're readily in-like-Flynn with their new habit, and nothing can stop them. Taurus Moons crave sensuality and are delighted by the taste, aroma and visual appeal of food.

Gemini
Gemini Moons are the ultimate snackers. Eating a little of this food and a bit of that one is one way they satisfy their craving for variety. With an almost insatiable curiosity, if they hear about a new food they try it to see what the hullabaloo is all about. Multi-taskers at heart, they may do double-duty when eating, coupling it with conversation, reading or internet surfing.

Cancer
Sensitive souls, those with Cancer Moons oftentimes turn to food for self-soothing. As such, they may want to keep a tendency for emotional eating in check so that it doesn't lead to overeating. There's nothing wrong with finding nurturance through food, it's just important to not use it as a panacea for problems. For Cancer Moons, home is where the heart is, so cooking meals for themselves and those they love can be really nourishing.

Leo
Like life, eating can be a cause for celebration for those with Leo Moons. With their big heart and enthusiastic nature, they like to live large … and need to watch that this doesn't too frequently translate into going overboard with overindulging. Focused on maintaining a sense of dignity, Leo Moons may not let on that they're watching their weight or being challenged by a particular food.

Those with Virgo Moons are inclined to be picky when it comes to food, evaluating its quantities of nutrients or quality of ingredients. Eating is oftentimes less about the pleasure it provides and more about how the functional role the food has in supporting their health. Discerning to a fault, they need to watch that their perfectionistic nature doesn't translate into judging every morsel they eat, which can significantly reduce the enjoyment of food.

Libra
With their convivial nature, Libra Moons often see their meals as an opportunity to gather with friends and loved ones. Even the simplest of meals can provide great pleasure to these aesthetes if artfully arranged and served with beautiful dinnerware. They need to watch that their propensity for indecision doesn't detract from their eating enjoyment, as it can make even the smallest mealtime decision seem monumental and a source of stress.

Scorpio
Passionate by nature, those with Scorpio Moons have foods that they love, and foods that they hate. With a tendency to go to extremes, they may be all-or-nothing when it comes to eating -- either being overly restrictive or unconstrained. It's important for them to keep this in check so it doesn't impact their well-being. Sensual Scorpio Moons find sharing a meal -- with the right person and the right setting -- to be an erotic experience.

Sagittarius
Like all other facets of their life, eating is an adventure for those with Sagittarius Moons. Enjoying different cuisines is a way for them to satisfy their desire to explore and learn about other cultures. Being optimists at heart, they need to watch the my-eyes-are-bigger-than-my-mouth syndrome, whereby they order more food than their appetite (and stomachs) can accommodate. Often averse when feeling a sense of limitation, they need to remember that sometimes less is actually more.

Capricorn
As Capricorn Moons aren't always eager to sway from tradition, they are usually more of the meat-and-potatoes type rather than the one trying out new fad foods. If they set their mind to something -- whether a diet plan or learn a new cooking technique -- their committed nature will help them to see it through. Rather frugal, they tend to not spend excessive money on dining out. Not wanting to waste, they're lovers of leftovers.

Aquarius
Aquarius Moons like to be free to do what they want to do when they want to do it --including eating. They honor their prized independent streaks by beating to their own mealtime drums. Intrigued by the larger world around them, these global citizens find the exotic both familiar and attractive. As such, foods from around the world may hold their intrigue and foster their delight.

Pisces
Pisces Moon people need to make an extra effort to pay attention when they eat; if not, they may dream away mealtime, not even remembering the experience -- or remembering to eat! If they stay present, eating can be a meditative, peace-inspiring occasion. With heightened sensitivity, they may be drawn to libations as a way to escape their feelings. But with their delicate constitutions, they may be more susceptible to the side effects.
