Sagittarius

November 22 – December 21

Go Sag, it’s your birthday! The champagne cork sound is the only song on your December playlist. The sun will be in Sagittarius this month, so blaze through the end of the year without holding back (and don’t forget the spicy food to match). Assertive Mars will be ruling you until the 19th and will help you make those recent tough decisions without thinking twice. Just remember, this month will have you running all over the place. With all of those parties to attend, the last thing on your mind will be grocery shopping. Try Home Chef, so you can keep the party going.

Capricorn

December 22 – January 19

Uh oh, Cap! Mercury is in retrograde from the 19th to the beginning of the new year, so there’s some trouble brewing (but that’s nothing new for you, right?). You’ll be in good spirits, and feeling adventurous at the beginning of the month, so take your adventure-seeking ways to the kitchen. Go ahead, show off a bit. Shhhhh! We won’t tell anyone that you got that killer recipe and those fresh ingredients from a box. Let them think you’re a pro; you are a convincing Capricorn, after all.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

What up, Aquarius? We know. You’ve been an unstoppable force lately and it might be time to slow your roll. With your packed schedule, you haven’t had time to tend to your space at home. Luckily you’re ruled by ambitious Mars this month, so your procrastination will subside. Clean out your fridge in time for the new year (new year, new food, right?!) and fill it with ingredients that fit your bold personality. Did someone say sweet and smoky chicken skewers? Take a page out of those skewers’ book and mix your sweet and smoky side to get a perfect balance.

Pisces

February 19 – March 20

Ready, set, go, Pisces! This is your month to shine. With sun ruling your sign until the 21st, you’ll have no excuse but to shine bright like a diamond. Speaking of shiny things, don’t forget to write a wish list for the holidays. Pisces, we know you’ve been holding back on your daring side, but it’s ok to let it out this month. Channel your bombastic passion into some delicious gourmet meals. You can even order the ingredients for an incredible meal online, while you brush up on your French gastronomy terms (oh you fancy, huh?).

Aries

March 21 – April 19

You’re as real as they get this month, Aries. With Mars and Venus ruling you until the 19th, your abrasive and loving sides will collide to create a perfect harmony. Your social side will also come out to play. How about your throw a dinner party for all of your friends? Don’t forget the food, Aries! You can’t go wrong with something classic like spaghetti– but wait, there’s a twist! A little ricotta never hurt anybody. *drops mic*

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

You’re looking for love this month, Taurus. Just look for it in the right places. We might know a place. Ever had a French Toast and Bacon Monte Cristo? We think it will be love at first sight. With Venus ruling your sign this month, your heart will be open to love, but don’t neglect your stomach. It’s time to treat yo’ self to love and delicious food, because life’s too short to be eating saltine crackers with a Jane Doe or John Smith. #relationshipgoals

Gemini

May 21 – June 20

Hey Gem. Just a heads up– Mercury is in retrograde this month, which is notorious for frustration and indecisiveness. Trust your gut, especially when it comes to food. There’s a full moon on the 13th, so watch out for that drama, Gem. We know you like to cook some up when the going gets dull. Try cooking up some delicious meals instead of drama, your friends and lovers will thank you. You got this, boo.

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

What up, Cancer? It’s been a rough year for us all, and you’re ready for it to be over, but you might as well go out with a bang. The new year will bring new and exciting things to your life, so why not start now? Out with the old and in with the new. Spice things up with a Shrimp Maki Bowl— just don’t forget the Sriracha. Unleash your inner crab, and get adventurous with your seafood tastes. Not a fish person? Try the “seefood” diet, instead. Get some exciting ingredients now, thank us later.

Leo

July 23 – August 22

Yo Leo, we see you on the scene. Your birthday was months ago, so try not to party like it’s your birthday everyday. 2016 has been a whirlwind for everyone, but especially you– your creative mind and hyperactive body never rest. With some post-Thanksgiving blues settling in, you’re craving a reprieve from that mashed potato pool you’ve been diving into. You’ve been neglecting the important things. Spend some time in your space at home. Start small– make yourself a delicious home-cooked meal. Even better? Meals that require no shopping. That’s right– put your feet up and wait for dinner to be delivered to your doorstep.

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

You’re looking for that new-new, but we know you– your ambitious spirit goes big or goes home. It’s probably not the best time to start that kombucha-only diet just yet. How about replacing your breakfast with a delicious smoothie? The sun isn’t setting on your sign until the 21st, so make the most of that positive energy and throw a holiday party. You won’t even have to think about meal planning, because we’ve got you covered. Werk it, Virgo.

Libra

September 23 – October 22

Are you on the naughty or nice list, Libra? You may find yourself on both with Mercury in retrograde. Try to find a good balance between the two– there’s nothing wrong with a dash of cheekiness. Put your restless energy into party planning. Throw an NYE party to start the new year off right. Serve some jalapeño poppers, which is the perfect match to your naughty-nice attitude this month. You’ll make the jalapeños pop, while your friends pop bottles. Just make sure they save some for you. You’ll be the hostess with the mostest (or the host with the most).

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

You’re going to be a scorpion-turned-butterfly this month. Social Mercury will rule you until the 19th, so be prepared for no sleep and no time. Just don’t double book– or you’ll cause quite the stir. Just try to make time for yourself. After the party dies down, treat yo’ self to something savory. Have you ever had a BBQ turkey burger in the winter? Well, now you can. Use your mad summer grill skillz to whip up a delicious meal, and you don’t necessarily have to share. We won’t tell.

    A Home Chef spin on an old trick – To crush crisped rice for breading, poke a small hole in the bag the crispies come in to let air escape and then roll a rolling pin over it, or press a heavy pan on it. No need to get another bowl dirty just for this!
