What Kind of Eater Is Pisces?
“Pisces goes with the flow,” says Wright. “More than any other sign, their taste changes from season to season and year to year. Ruled by travel and higher education planet Jupiter, Pisces may spend months totally obsessed with Japanese cuisine, then become enchanted by Southern BBQ after a particularly meaningful trip (or YouTube binge). Like fellow jovial sign Sagittarius, Pisces also has a major sweet tooth and will never turn down a glass of wine. Pisces thinks of these indulgences as a divine way to connect with other people, which is their favorite thing to do.”
When it comes to hosting, Pisces would much rather be a guest at someone else’s dinner party than have to cook for a crowd. “As the dreamiest sign in the zodiac, they hate following recipes. But unlike fellow rule-breaker Aries, their improvisations in the kitchen often lead to meals that are...too bizarre to share,” adds Wright. (See Grimes’s recipe for “sludge” in her Harpers’ BAZAAR pregnancy food diary, for example—it’s likely delicious, but maybe not for public consumption.)
