How Your Moon Sign Influences Your Eating Habits

How Your Moon Sign Influences Your Eating Habits
Since the Moon rules the stomach and digestion, it greatly influences your health and eating habits. Exploring the element of your Moon sign can help reveal your most personal tastes, as well as what works for you -- and what troubles you -- when it comes to food.

(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.

Earth sign Moons: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
If you're an Earth Moon, eating based on emotion can be a problem for you. Virgo Moons are especially health-sensitive, so processed foods are a major no-no for Virgo tummies. Taurus enjoys the pleasure of eating and can gravitate toward heavy carbs and high-fat foods. Capricorn sees food as a means to an end and must focus on nutrient-rich items to compensate for somewhat slow metabolism.

Air sign Moons: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Air is the element least connected to the body, so certain Air Moons can sometimes forget to eat! Reminding yourself to eat regularly is important, as Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius can be quite vague about physical needs. Focus on frequent small meals, as you don't do well with heavy meals.

Water sign Moons: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Water is all about feelings, so if you have a Water Moon, you tend to be an emotional eater. If you feel happy, you want to share a meal to celebrate with friends; if you're sad, you're more likely to eat in an attempt to drown your pain. Good health and eating well comes down to managing your moods. Explore natural mood-enhancers such as exercise or wellness therapies (massage, reflexology) -- if you do, you'll be less likely to rely on food to soothe you.
