(See below to learn how you can quickly determine your Moon sign!)
Fire sign Moons: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire symbolizes heat, so flavorful, spicy foods are the top preference for Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Garlic, ginger, and chile pepper add the intensity you crave. Focus on high-nutrient foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, to squeeze maximum fuel from the least amount of calories. Fire is linked to energy, which comes via iron-rich foods -- typically meats and dark green vegetables.
