The Best Foods for Each Zodiac Sign
While things like spinach or kale may be considered universally healthy, certain chemicals and minerals are processed differently by each sign. In fact, there is a unique and special mineral for each sign, and each sign should focus on making sure that they are receiving enough of it.
Aries’ mineral is potassium phosphate. Aries rules the head, which is associated with perception, thought, and common sense. Physically, imbalances in the diet or health of an Aries can result in headaches, head congestion, migraines, and sinus infections. Potassium phosphate is crucial for you, Aries, and making sure that you’re getting enough can prevent depression and mood imbalances.
Foods that contain this mineral include lentils, brown rice, onions, olives, walnuts, lettuce, cauliflower, bananas, figs, broccoli, pumpkin, and cucumbers.
Additionally, Aries should avoid too much salt, which can cause bloating and issues within the arteries, as well as alcohol, which negatively affects the kidneys.
Taurus rules the throat and neck, and poor diet can result in neck pains, sore throats, laryngitis, and glandular issues. Your unique mineral is sulphate of sodium, which allows for proper hydration and throat health. It’s important to make sure that you get enough of this mineral in your diet to avoid a stiff neck, sore throat, or other issues in that area of the body.
There are many foods that contain sulphate of sodium: cauliflower, horseradish, cucumber, spinach, pumpkin, onion, asparagus, beets, cranberries, and raw nuts.
Taureans should avoid rich diets that contain a lot of starch, sugar, or fat, as this can contribute to weight gain and other health issues.
The shoulders, arms, hands, and lungs are ruled by Gemini, and poor diet can result in respiratory infections, asthma, and bronchitis, among other health issues. The mineral that Geminis should pay special attention to is potassium chloride, which allows for the proper creation of fibrin in organs, blood, and tissues.
Foods that contain potassium chloride include oranges, peaches, spinach, green beans, celery, tomatoes, carrots, asparagus and wild rice.
Stimulants should be avoided, as they trigger the nerves and can cause anxiety. Too much coffee isn’t a good thing to include in your diet—try replacing it with small amounts of green tea, which contains far less caffeine.
Cancer rules over the breasts and stomach, which means that dietary issues can lead to digestive problems, weight gain, and even anxiety. Your cell salt is calcium fluoride, which keeps the body’s connective tissues elastic and healthy.
It’s important for you to get plenty of the following foods in your diet: whole grain rye, fish, oysters, egg yolks, beets, and yogurt. Foods with calcium, which is also important, include cheese, milk, tomatoes, and okra.
Cancers should avoid too much salt, sugar, or starch in their diet. Salt can cause bloating, while sugars and starches can cause constipation.

The spine, back, and heart are ruled by Leo. You’re prone to push yourself too hard, which can lead to back problems, which yoga can help combat. Magnesium phosphate is the mineral that is crucial for a Leo’s health, because it helps the nerves function properly.
It’s also important that you learn to cut out heavy and fatty foods as much as you can from your diet at a young age. These foods can lead to weight gain and other problems.
Virgo rules the intestines and the nervous system. Poor diet can lead to indigestion, gas pain, bowel problems, ulcers, and colitis. It’s important for you to take in plenty of potassium sulphate, which prevents dandruff, dry skin, hair loss, eczema, fatigue, and constipation.
Foods high in this mineral include bananas, lemons, oranges, cheese, lean beef, lamb, whole wheat and whole grains, dark green veggies, and leafy greens.
You may have a deep love for chocolate, but it can upset your stomach. You may also wish to stay away from spicy or overly seasoned foods.
The lumbar region, the buttocks, and the kidneys are ruled by Libra. Balance is crucial for the Libran’s diet, the lack of which leading to kidney issues and breakouts of the skin. Your mineral is sodium phosphate, which allows for equalization between alkalis and acids in the body, thus providing balance.
Foods rich in this mineral include carrots, corn, spinach, beets, asparagus, almonds, brown rice, and oatmeal. You should also make sure that you’re getting enough protein.
Your skin is sensitive, and rich foods and alcohol can cause breakouts. Avoiding rich meals and cocktails will help keep your skin looking clear and fresh.
Scorpio rules the sexual organs, making that region of the body more sensitive than others. You can suffer from poor health brought on by emotional disturbances. Calcium Sulphate is an extremely important mineral for Scorpios, because it assists in reproductive health and helps the body form cells.
Asparagus, radishes, cauliflower, onions, tomatoes, figs, black cherries, and coconuts are all foods that contain calcium sulphate. Make sure you incorporate some or all of these foods into your diet when you can.
Scorpios should avoid big meals and instead focus on about four small meals throughout the day. Too much food can weigh you down.
The hips, thighs, and liver are ruled by Sagittarius. Without proper diet and exercise, Sagittarians are susceptible to gout, sciatica, and hip problems. Exercise is very important for the Sag, as well as making sure to get enough silica into your diet. This cell salt contributes to healthy skin, hair, and gums.
Silica can be found in green peppers, raw salads, pears, strawberries, apples, potatoes, oats, whole grains, and egg yolk, as well as the skin of fruits and veggies.
Creams, butters, fats, candy, and chocolate should be avoided as much as possible by Sagittarians, as they can lead to weight gain. Alcohol can easily and negatively affect your liver, so try to imbibe as little as possible.
Capricorn rules the teeth, bones, joints, and knees. Your body is prone to issues such as arthritis and rheumatism and overworking yourself can lead to knee problems. Calcium phosphate is a crucial mineral for Capricorns, because it assists in bone formation.
Oranges, lemons, dandelion greens, cabbage, spinach, figs, celery, broccoli, and corn contain plenty of calcium phosphate, so make sure you’re eating enough of these foods.
Try not to eat the same foods consistently; make sure you’re switching your diet up and trying many new fruits and vegetables.
Aquarius rules the circulatory system, the shins, the ankles, and the calves. While generally healthy, you may suffer from issues with the circulatory system, which is why sodium chloride is important. This can be found in common table salt, but there are healthier ways to make sure you’re getting enough of this mineral.
Lobster, tuna, ocean fish, radishes, spinach, celery, squash, lentils, apples, peaches, and pears all contain sodium chloride.
Too much caffeine can make you feel nervous and jittery, rather than giving you energy. Try cutting back on your caffeine intake, perhaps by switching your coffee with gentle green tea.
Pisces rules the feet, toes, and mucous membranes. You may be susceptible to colds, sinus issues, or water retention if your diet is not rich in vitamins and minerals. Ferrum phosphate, or iron, is extremely important for Pisces to make sure they include in their diet.
Foods with iron include lean beef, lamb, egg yolks, oysters, whole grains, beets, beans, barley, spinach, onions, and peaches.
Too much salt leads to water retention, which you are vulnerable too. Try cutting back on your salt intake, as well as coffee and alcohol, which can disturb the emotions.
Taking Care of You
As you can see, astrology can provide simple, easy ways to better take care of yourself, according to your own unique, specific needs. By incorporating the foods that are most important to your sign, you’ll begin to honor not only your body, but your astrological destiny.

Your February 2020 Tarotscopes:
Aries: The Hermit (Reversed) & Queen of Swords (Reversed)
Beware of the beast that is overthinking, Aries.
This month brings you a multitude of opportunities and choices, but something funky must be in the air and is making you lose your decisive, go-getter attitude! Not all of your choices are equal in quality, it’s true, but there will inevitably be pros and cons to all options. If needed, do not be afraid to seek a second opinion, even if your independent flair is telling you otherwise.
Taurus: Death (Reversed) & 10 of Cups
Changes, choices, and vast life alterations in the past few months are at a complete halt in February for you, Taurus.
No more shifting, no more confusion, and no more need to second-guess your decisions. This February, you can expect to more fully see the fruits of your labor blossom into fruition, as a more stable emotional environment kicks in for you and the crazy tides of change have died down.
Gemini: The Tower (Reversed) & Ace of Cups
We spy quite a mix of pleasure and pain for you this month, Gemini.
On one hand, love is certainly in the air — there’s a newfound sense of playfulness, flirtiness, and enjoyment that stems from your relationships with others. On the other hand, navigating new relationships and connections isn’t the easiest task in the world either, and you’ve entered new territory when it comes to communication styles and differences in personality. Enjoy the ride of connecting differently, but don’t be discouraged or give up too quickly if things don’t click immediately.
Cancer: The Star (Reversed) & Page of Swords (Reversed)
Confusion is looming this February for you, Cancer, and it’s understandable given your circumstances.
While it’s true that the situations you’re about to be presented with in February are requiring a level of discernment and judgement that is difficult with the limited information you’ll be given, you need to be able to take what you know and share that information with others. You’re a strong individual with a tendency to not want to pass burdens off to others, but the people in your life genuinely want to be of assistance, so don’t let yourself stew in your thoughts all alone!
Leo: The Sun (Reversed) & Ace of Pentacles
February is primarily about work, finance, and career for you undoubtedly, Leo.
There have been lingering questions about the direction of these areas, the opportunities that are available to you, and what is good enough for your wonderful lion self’s creativity and emotional needs. Coming into this month, placing focus on these things is going to do wonders for what work, money, and career ultimately look like for you, but you have to be careful that you set aside time to have fun and let loose a little too!
Virgo: Wheel of Fortune (Reversed) & 3 of Swords
You may suddenly feel way out of sync this month, Virgo.
Schedules may be thrown off, the effectivity of your routines get questioned, or maybe a plan has to be thrown out the window altogether. Whatever the case, disappointment and plans going awry seem to be a running theme during this February for you, and part of the challenge is going to be how you adapt to those situations. Remember: even as a bit of a perfectionist sign, Virgos are still Mutable and meant to roll with the punches!
Libra: The Chariot & 6 of Cups (Reversed)
While success, tangible progress, and positive traction is definitely on the way for you this February, Libra, you have to be careful that you don’t lose sight of your roots.
Whenever you celebrate a victory, take a step ahead in the path of success, or achieve a goal, make a little mental note of why you had set those goals or plans in the first place. And spread a little gratitude towards those that may have helped you, whether directly or inadvertently!
Scorpio: The Fool & Knight of Swords
These past few months have been a period of intense emotional and spiritual work for you, Scorpio, truly testing your limits of how you might handle stress and inner conflict.
Now, though, the running theme of placing focus on emotion is taking a break for February, and you’ll find a much lighter, action-focused approach to be more appropriate for your circumstances. Expect new opportunities, adventures, and finally some prospects for movement, spontaneity, and fun!
Sagittarius: The Magician (Reversed) & 7 of Swords
You are artists and creatives at heart, wild archer, but something about your social circles in February is pushing your ability to focus on your independent hobbies to the side.
Perhaps people in your life are partaking in gossip, petty actions, or are actively interfering with you or being dishonest. Unfortunately, this looks to take priority as you have to sort yourself out among the social scuffle and make sure that you come out unscathed from the conflict. While of course, it would be more fun and enjoyable to keep practicing your hobbies or focus on your individual work, it’s time to play mediator for now.
Capricorn: The Moon (Reversed) & 9 of Wands
It seems you just can’t quite catch long enough of a break, Capricorn!
Already heading into the second month of February, it seems that something is causing you to act with a lot of caution and reserve like you’re on the defensive in the midst of battle. What’s more, it looks like the energy of The Moon in reverse brings a lot of confusion, second-guessing, and clouded judgement to the table, making a plan of action even more difficult. Rest assured that this phase will pass and it’s just that — a phase!

Aquarius: The Hanged Man (Reversed) & 2 of Wands
No more waiting — it’s go-time for Aquarians this February!
After placing focus on others and trying to ease situations for everyone else in your life, you’re finally done being the hero for the world and are now the hero for your own story. Expect several plans, ideas, and spontaneous bursts of energy to come to you this month in the heat of Aquarius season itself, and try not to get caught up in perfectly executing everything or feeling as though you must initiate all of those plans. Enjoy your new freedom and independence, and try out the ideas that appeal to you the most without overthinking too much!
Pisces: The World (Reversed) & 8 of Wands
There’s a sense of haste, speed, and quick communication and decision-making that’s arising for you this month, Pisces.
While your excitement and desire to be decisive is admirable, you also have to be careful that you’re not making shortcuts or looking for easy solutions. In part, you will have to be making snap decisions simply due to deadlines or other external circumstances, but where there can be patience, let it come through.
A Final Reminder
While your Tarotscope will reveal the energies you’re likely to encounter as you head into February, it can also be helpful to refer back to it throughout the month as they seep in more clearly. First and foremost, though, it is but one tool to add to your toolbox and not the whole guidebook — keep in mind that the future is always in your hands!
