Are you stuck in a brunch rut? The zodiac might be able to help. Astrology enthusiasts believe that our personalities are influenced by the positions of celestial bodies at the time of our birth, affecting everything from our relationships to our food choices. In other words, whether you’re a fiery Leo or a dreamy Pisces, there’s a specific brunch dish that suits your personal qualities.
So whether you’re sick of the same old Pret sandwich or are simply curious about your own astrological profile, read on to see if the stars align.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): The Trailblazer
Aries is the zodiac’s fearless leader. A bold and ambitious fire sign, you’re known for being dynamic, curious and never backing down from a challenge. All that energy needs proper fuel, so opt for a brunch dish that will keep you going all day. Try a spicy breakfast burrito, loaded with tongue-tingling hot sauce to add some pep to your step.
If you’re eating out, why not go for the newest, most exciting option on the menu? You know you love to be ahead of the curve.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): The Connoisseur
A decadent earth sign, Taurus is all about comfort and indulgence. A leisurely brunch is your ideal way to spend a Sunday morning – even better if it’s served in bed. You appreciate the finer things in life, so you’ll want a brunch dish that’s luxurious and delicious. How about fluffy buttermilk pancakes topped with fresh berries and whipped cream? For those with more of a savoury tooth, a hearty Eggs Benedict should hit the spot – just don’t stint on the hollandaise sauce.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The Communicator
Gemini is the quick-witted twin sign, able to talk to anyone about anything. You love to mix it up and crave variety in everything from your friendship groups to the books you read.
Use brunch as a spontaneous excuse to socialise by grabbing a load of your mates, ordering a range of dishes from the menu and sharing them between you. Give yourself the freedom to try a little bit of everything and you might just satisfy your insatiable curiosity!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): The Nurturer
As a Cancer, you’re a classic homebody and feel happiest when you feel safe and cosy. With a nurturing spirit and sensitive nature, you need time to establish trust and don’t love being pushed out of your comfort zone. Rather than venturing out to eat, why not invite over your closest friends and host brunch at yours? You could serve a warming porridge with cinnamon and maple syrup or soft and creamy scrambled eggs. With your gift for making people feel at ease, anything you cook will be a hit.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): The Showstopper
Leos bring the razzle dazzle to the zodiac. You’re not afraid to do the most – in fact, there’s nothing you love more than the spotlight. Champagne and lobster? You’re ordering it! Karaoke brunch? You’re the first one on that stage!
As the life of the party, you know that it’s not so much about what you order as how you order it. Go for something fun and filling like a super-sized Full English or a spinach and mushroom omelette with a side of bacon. And whatever you do, don’t forget a round of mimosas to wash it all down.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): The Health Guru
Virgos are doers with an eye for detail. A quintessential earth sign, you’re all about precision and healthy choices (your symbol is a maiden carrying a sheaf of wheat, after all). But just because you want your brunch choice to be well-balanced, doesn’t mean it can’t also be delicious. Opt for an Insta-worthy avocado toast with a poached egg, topped with chopped herbs and mixed seeds. If you’re feeling extra virtuous, you could pair it with a fresh green juice. Yoghurt with granola and berries is also a great option if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): The Creative
Oh, Libra: you’re probably the only sign reading this article hoping that it will actually tell you what to order. You might be indecisive and prone to overthinking but you’re also a social butterfly who appreciates beauty and is always striving for balance. Choose a dish that’s visually appealing and full of variety. A Turkish brunch mixes sweet with savoury, combining fresh cucumber and tomatoes with cheese, cured meats, olives, bread and jams. Similarly a colourful fruit salad has aesthetic appeal and allows you to try a range of flavours. If you can’t choose, why not order both?
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): The Passionate Soul
One of the most infamous zodiac signs, Scorpios are intense, charismatic and direct. A water sign, you use emotional energy as fuel and can sometimes be intimidating to those who don’t know you very well. Choose a brunch dish with a bit of mystery and depth, like spicy and smoky huevos rancheros. Opt for bold flavours that ignite the senses, whether that’s a kimchi and fried egg rice bowl or a Mediterranean shakshuka.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): The Globe-Trotter
Sagittarius, you’re all about exploration. Hungry for knowledge as well as food, you love to travel and crave novelty – even at brunch! Use your meal as a chance to try new cuisines and flavours from around the world, like a spicy Thai brunch bowl or an Indian split pea and spinach dhal.
If you’re struggling to sit still for long enough to finish a meal, grab a cream cheese and smoked salmon bagel to eat on the go and energise you for your next adventure.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): The Achiever
Capricorns are often associated with structure and discipline. A patient, preserving and loyal sign, you have a healthy appreciation of tradition (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it). You can’t go wrong by sticking to British classics like crispy bacon and runny eggs on toast, washed down with a cup of tea. As a hard worker, you need plenty of energy: a creamy bowl of porridge with your topping of choice will keep you motivated and toasty in the colder months.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): The Innovator
Aquarius thrives on innovation and creative ideas. You’re known as the revolutionary of the zodiac and are always working to break down boundaries and make the world a better place. With your commitment to social justice, you might opt for a vegetarian or vegan brunch dish with local produce. Try coconut and banana pancakes – light, fluffy and easy to make using vegan ingredients – or a veggie fry-up for something satisfying and socially responsible.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): The Romantic
Pisces, you’re a born romantic and a natural dreamer with an intuitive streak. You adapt effortlessly to your surroundings so would be just as happy heading to a local café for brunch as you would whipping up some eggs at a friend’s house.
Treat yourself to something sweet like crepes topped with nutella and loaded with strawberries, or embrace your whimsical side with French toast drizzled with lavender-infused syrup. Soft textures will soothe you while creative flavours will delight your senses.
Whatever stage you’re at in your working life, you’ve probably heard of company culture. While this was once a niche phrase reserved for trendy startups, many companies today place a strong emphasis on culture, referencing it in everything from job descriptions to team meetings. Previously, company culture was all about in-person interactions – from bigger […]
