You Eat What You Are?

This post was written by Anna

I’m 98.7% certain that we are all familiar with the adage “You are what you eat.” Domino’s Pizza, however, recently teamed up with astrologer Steve Weiss, and determined that, in reality, we eat what we are. Meaning, our tastes are somewhat dictated by our astrological sun sign.

While I’m not sure why Domino’s would want to fund such research, they have a valid point; after all, even we at Llewellyn have long had books based on the marriage of astrology and food (for some great meal planning, just check out Sydney Omarr’s Cooking with Astrology!).

According to Domino’s, As a Leo I should “expect each meal to be a social event, and not care what I’m eating” (I hate people watching me eat, as I’m wont to make a fool out of myself in some way, shape, or form, and I do care greatly what I’m eating, thankyouverymuch) while my Virgo cusp, Virgo moon, and Virgo ascendant would mean that I should be “very much a perfectionist” when it comes to my food choices (I’m very practical when spending money on food, which ensures that a fine filet mignon never has been, nor will likely ever be, my choice for dinner, and I’ve been known to purchase wine in boxes).

While Domino’s and Steve Weiss didn’t peg me correctly, I have to take into consideration the fact that we are much more than just our sun signs; we are an amalgamation of our entire natal chart. Can we really plan meals and understand people’s eating habits by mere sun sign alone?

That’s hilarious! Thanks for posting the article. I’m a Cancer, and yes, I definitely love my comfort foods! Of course, I believe the definition of comfort foods is whatever you like eating the best, so that’s a no-brainer. For example, my comfort foods would include expected ones like mac and cheese, but also some non-traditional choices (for the US, anyway) like stuffed cabbage or fried cheese. : ))
