Daily FoodScopes - Monday August 25, 2008

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Drama alert! Your life may get extremely messy today, but step away from the buffet line! Fight the urge to overeat to compensate, and stick with your normally sensible meals if you want to get through this sanely.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Celebrate your connection with your closest female friends today. Take a long lunch and savor the conversations as much as you do the chilled shrimp cocktails and avocado salads.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
You don't have to go cheap if you're on a budget. Upscale bistros, for example, offer prixe faire (fixed price) menus with limited choice, but delicious flavors. So if you're watching your bottom line, find a more creative way than ramen to do it.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
There is no better day to ditch the shell and speak out! Steel yourself for the battles ahead with foods rich in strengthening iron. Brown rice, pita bread, soy milk and potato skins are all rich in the iron you need to take on any challenge!

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You'll be in love with the world today and ready to show it! Share the love by whipping up a little ganache -- dark chocolate, butter and cream -- atop a basic pound cake. These simple flavors will set your heart on fire, and your lips to heaven.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Surround yourself with people of different backgrounds and lifestyles today. Maybe hanging out with the vegan or the die-hard carnivore will challenge you to justify your pasta-heavy diet.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The day will be a blend of frustrating stalls and brief moments of action. Take control of what you can and come to grips with those things you cannot. A little fruity sangria with a dish of salty and herbed olives will make this acceptance easier.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Give yourself permission to be vulnerable today. Express your frustrations, thank someone profusely and break out the tissues at movies. Dine on shellfish: crab, scallops and mussels -- all as tender and exposed as you are on this emotional day.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Let the day take you where it will. Rather than digging in against change, question it's place in your life. Instead of eating the same old salad for lunch, why not explore the wonders of cold soups? Gazpacho and vichyssoise can be a revelation.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Today brings a new sense of purpose and a renewed passion for just about everything in your life. Rediscover a food you might have written off. Apples, for instance. Cored, sliced in half, sprinkled with brown sugar and butter and baked is a delicious dessert.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Today will be full of life's little annoyances: The food processer is on the fritz, the blender shorts out and you have nothing in your fridge worth eating. Rather than avoid (as is your normal mandate), deal. Whip up the Japanese equivalent of a 'leftover omelet,' Okonomiyaki, and get on with straightening out your mess of a home.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Appreciate the strong female influence of the day. Whether it's Mom, Grandma or some other grand dame in your life, you owe this woman a lot. Encourage them to substitute the meats in their stirfrys, salads and soups with hearty tofu today.
