The Zodiac and Breakfast

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

The breakfast for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

You are often rushing, and you are not inclined to spend hours at the table, especially in the morning. You are not looking for any special refinement or protocol. As soon as you are up, the race starts, and unfortunately, you are content with a hot beverage, which you swallow quickly while getting ready.

You should avoid drinking too much black coffee, because this is not the best option in your case, since you are already quite dynamic without it. It would be better to take a breakfast to be eaten on your premises. You could prepare it yourself or buy it on the way. Do not skip it, because your hectic rhythm requires a great deal of energy.

Heavily rely on vitamin-rich foods which enable you to function properly, for example smoothies loaded with fresh fruits, preferably red berries, and seasoned with ginger or cinnamon. When you are at home or on vacation, you completely let go, and you indulge yourself with fried, scrambled or Benedict eggs, with grilled bacon and toasts.

The breakfast for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Is breakfast your favourite meal? Perhaps yes, bearing in mind that you are gourmet and epicurean enough to appreciate all kinds of food. In any case, it is out of the question that you leave home with an empty stomach. You are fond of rituals: dressing a nice table, listening to music, looking out of the window to check the weather.

You do not stint yourself. Croissants, pancakes served with maple syrup; sometimes delicatessen and local produce such as high pasture cheeses or seasonal fruits. You also like apricots, bitter oranges, and wild strawberries traditional home-made jams.

It is unnecessary to explain to you how important it is to respect this meal. Just be careful not to overindulge in good food, and watch your waistline. Keep the most caloric menus for winter days or when you get a lot of exercise.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

The breakfast for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Since food is not at all an obsession, you tend to skip breakfast. You do not have enough time for that. As soon as you wake up, your first reflex is to get the latest news from the radio, from your newspapers or from your smartphone. You ought to breathe more deeply and to calmly visualise your day, but this is how things are.

Actually, to get motivated, it is important that you take advantage of the whole variety of breakfasts. Today, you do not need to be bound by tradition. Explore nouvelle cuisine options, and look for ideas on Pinterest, always focusing on lightness. Try tomato tostadas like in Andalusia, and a fruit shot. The following day, go for a bowl of yoghurt with flower honey and slivered almonds.

The least you could do is to drink a freshly squeezed fruit juice, even if it means that you must buy it on the way. In winter, you could have matcha latte instead of coffee. In summer, you could be interested in green juices which are excellent for your delicate metabolism.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

The breakfast for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

In today’s world, unfortunately, people seldom eat the traditional breakfast for which you are longing. Slices of bread of your childhood, bright-coloured bowls of cereals shared with the numerous and cheery family members gathered around the table. It was an exquisite moment, like in certain attractive advertisements.

If you are the only one yearning for this idealised image, nothing prevents you from inventing your rituals. You could make a delicious tea, left to brew slowly in a teapot found at a flea market. You could also prepare a perfect, hearty and comforting cup of chocolate.

You particularly appreciate the mellowing effect of buns served with clarified butter and home-made jams. You enjoy experimenting recipes, for instance making a marmalade with apricots, rosemary, and walnuts. You could also concoct a redcurrant or raspberry jelly with vanilla. All this in a cute old-fashioned jar.

The breakfast for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

At breakfast, you never forget fitness. This meal must be fit for palaces. Otherwise, you do not want it. You select a beautiful white tablecloth or place mats which are far more practical but original.

Fruits have the seat of honour. They provide you with energy in addition to being a feast for the eyes. Pineapple, oranges, or lemons, they must bring in sunny air, at least in the plate or in the glass.

You are blessed with a good constitution, and you are fond of invigorating dishes such as fried eggs and toasts, or pancakes with maple syrup. On week-ends, you like to take your time. You have a lie-in, then get dressed and go out for brunch. You know prestigious places, and, in some exceptional occasions, you do not hesitate to end your meal with a glass of Champagne.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

The breakfast for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is what you keep on saying, based on what you have read in the studies written by nutritionists, and confirmed by the adage: "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper".

The content of the menu meets the demands of an apothecary. You need precise amounts of dairy products, of cereals, of fruits, of vitamins, and at the same time, you respect a calorie intake representing 20 to 25% of the daily allowance. Be careful not to overdo, and do not behave as it you were dealing with medicines.

You tend to take dietary supplements. To hit the mark, you must rely on a gourmet diet: Scandinavian Smorrebrods (wholemeal bread with cottage cheese and fresh fruits), Bircher Mueslis with healthy food such as pumpkin seeds or chia seeds. You should also buy seasonal produce from the neighbourhood to take heed of the environmental impact.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

The breakfast for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Because you are sociable, and sometimes a social butterfly, you cannot imagine having breakfast alone. Conviviality starts right upon waking. This is why, on weekdays, you are glad to have a snack in a tea-room, where you opt for tasty delicacies: Danish pastries, cappuccino – though without sugar – freshly squeezed fruit juice.

Your eye plays a fundamental role in appreciating them. Is there anything more mouth-watering than the pictures of edibles displayed on the social networks?

On week-ends, you enjoy brunches, either at your friends’ place or elsewhere. It is the occasion to spruce yourself up instead of hanging about in your pyjamas. You are a fan of new trendy places. You love to try them, to compare them and to visit them again if you find people’s opinion convincing.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

The breakfast for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

No one really knows what you are having for breakfast. Indeed, even on such ordinary matters, you like to behave mysteriously. You happen to skip this meal when you are worried by something.

Be careful not to become addicted to caffeine, because you are not a morning person. You are naturally intemperate, not always mindful of a healthy lifestyle. However, you love to test your limits. Therefore, you should consider discovering unusual dishes. Why not try a platter of sharp cheeses, or a green omelette with fine herbs and spinach? You could also experiment the fantastic properties of juices and get the impression that you are drinking a magic potion.

Without resorting to clichés which are too fashionable for you, you are drawn to weird associations such as cocoa and peanut butter in winter, or passion fruit, to match your personality and to get your fill of vitamins. Spices are also on the list, with saffron or anise brioche.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

The breakfast for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Owing to your epicurean temperament, you think that breakfast is a source of pleasure which must not be neglected. In addition, you consider that it must offer variety. You have a huge appetite and therefore, you tend to overindulge in all kinds of buffets: delicatessen, matured cheeses, omelettes, or slices of cake that you eat with coffee rather than tea. Then, you are perfectly happy.

Since you are sometimes daring and always curious, you try everything available in the world, and you may make it a habit at home. Baghrirs from Morocco, Pastéis de Nata from Portugal make you travel. If you are bold, you get your inspiration from Scotland, its fried eggs, bacon, and tomatoes, but above all, its black pudding.

If you decide to restrict your calorie intake, you should consider the eating habits of people in Hawaii. Their fresh fruits will replenish your potassium level and will correct exceedingly acid meals.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

The breakfast for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

You are not too fond of fine dining, and actually quite Spartan in this area. You need a breakfast which does not require too much time – it is sacred for you – and which provides enough energy to work as long as possible, especially on weekdays.

You should avoid programming your business meetings at breakfast time, because they would cause stress, and you would be able to swallow only a cup of strong coffee. Make an effort, and take at least some porridge or a bowl of wholegrain cereals. A green juice and a hot beverage will serve your purpose.

To hit the mark, take advantage of this break. Focus on the need to chew properly, and find inner balance. You are not particularly talkative in the morning, but a short meditation session, before or after, may prove very beneficial. You will then be able to visualise your day and experience it in the best possible way.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

The breakfast for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

You definitely fear nothing! Because you feel that traditional breakfasts are boring, you tend to skip them, sometimes without being aware of it. Deeply engrossed with your thoughts or with your creativity, you forget the most basic rules of a balanced diet.

It is possible that you are out of synch with the prevailing habits. However, some new forms of this meal may appeal to you. You are always willing to try all sorts of juice recipes. Whether their properties are real or not, you accept to taste them, for you are curious.

The more futuristic the result - shaded-off colours and strange textures - the happier you are. Whether they are green, pink, made with almond, soy milk, New Age vegetables such as kale cabbage, or based on açai and cranberry, nothing deters you. If you are looking for something solid, think of an original home-made granola.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

The breakfast for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

You cannot be expected to meticulously prepare a table for everyone the day before, and even less the very morning. You use the time saved in the kitchen to voluptuously recharge your batteries in the bathroom.

Having said this, you enjoy eating slowly your breakfast, putting your thoughts in perspective with an Earl Grey tea in a lovely teapot. You have a sweet tooth, and you appreciate the Buddha Bowl, not only because it is beautiful, since you are influenced by Venus, but also because it has many good properties for your physical and mental health.

By taking care of you and of those dear to your heart, you feel that you are starting off on the right foot. For example, you cook tapioca with a base of farm cheese, grilled hazelnuts, and a kiwi. You garnish the whole thing with blueberries and grated coconut, and there you are, in good shape for the whole day.
