What Pinterest Recipe You Should Make Based on Your Zodiac Sign

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BU chapter.

Pinterest is an overwhelming place. It’s a site where you design every aspect of your dream life, from what your wedding dress will look like to what food you eat. As I’m sure it is for many people, Pinterest is my first destination when I’m looking for something to cook or bake. Unfortunately, I end up scrolling endlessly looking for the perfect recipe and end up making none of them. To make your life easier, here is a compiled list of what you should make on Pinterest based on your zodiac sign.

1. Aries (March 21-April 19)

Fire signs, Aries are determined and confident (maybe a little too confident at times). They enjoy taking on challenges and being the best at what they do. To match their “spicy” personalities, they should make this homemade salsa. The recipe says it’s the best, just like Aries say they are!

2. Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taurus’ are really grounded and down to earth. They enjoy activities that involve using their hands, such as gardening and cooking. That makes sense considering it’s an earth sign. Because of their conservative personalities, a Taurus should make chocolate chip cookies if looking for something to bake. They’re a classic dessert that isn’t too complicated to make.

3. Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Gemini symbol is twins, representative of the difference in character that they face. One minute they can be outgoing and ready to have fun, but then suddenly become very serious and thoughtful. This is just like sweet and savory food, so a Gemini should make these Brie and Fig Crostinis. This appetizer, for a dinner party when Geminis are feeling social, is the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

4. Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Cancers’ loyalty to others and their sympathy is what also makes them very emotional and moody. They are very sensitive, and therefore able to empathize well with others. Because of their emotional side, they should lean towards a comfort food like mac and cheese. Bonus: This recipe is a family favorite, perfect for family-oriented cancer signs.

5. Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leos are natural born leaders, just like their symbol, the lion. They are dramatic, confident, and extremely hard to resist, just like a juicy steak. As a steak would probably enjoy, Leos like expensive things being admired.

6. Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Virgos have a good maternal instinct. They are caring and pay attention to small details. They tend to worry a lot because they don’t like leaving things to chance. Due to their practicality, they should try making a trail mix. This indulges their enjoyment of nature and healthy food.

7. Libra (September 23-October 22)

A Libra is a fair-minded and cooperative person. They enjoy harmony and gentleness and dislike violence and injustice. They are also very practical and indecisive. The scale symbol represents balance and symmetry, so a good recipe for Libras is a balanced and healthy grilled chicken salad.

8. Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpios are brave and passionate. They are also assertive, making them great leaders. A Scorpio is typically calm and cool, can be mysterious. In a similar fashion, buffalo wings can start out tolerable (or at least look tolerable), then be incredibly spicy. Just like the scorpion, they can pack a punch.

9. Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Extroverted and curious, Sagittarius’ like being outdoors and traveling. They have a great sense of humor and are idealistic. They are skilled at turning their thoughts into concrete actions. Because of that combined with their adventurous side, they would be able to tackle a job like making a homemade pizza.

10. Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

If you are a Capricorn, chances are you’re responsible and disciplined. You have good willpower. You also probably enjoy making things look pleasing. In fact, Pinterest may or may not be your Holy Bible. With your strong sense of self-control (a.k.a. Ability to pass up the pancakes), you should make a parfait, a breakfast that you can make look really nice.

11. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Aquarius signs are shy and quiet, but can also be eccentric and fun. They are independent and progressive, meaning that they may like making a trendy avocado toast for breakfast. They don’t like dull or moments, and with avocado toast, things are never boring.

12. Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

Pisces are compassionate and artistic people. They like to be alone at times and enjoy visual media. They are also compassionate and good at sharing. Sugar cookies are the perfect dessert for a Pisces to make because it gives them some good alone time, the ability to use their creative energy to decorate them, and can share the cookies with family and friends.

These recipe ideas should hopefully inspire you to try something new, or at least save you from the never-ending Pinterest scrolling that you might go through. There is a recipe for everyone, from mac and cheese to parfait. Happy cooking!
