Virgo season has entered the building! Time to lean into our practical side and look inward to continue our growth journeys. In the wake of the new school year, it’s time to reset and start fresh.
Whether you’re going back to school or just want to take advantage of the new year mindset – what better way to motivate yourself than through your favorite snacks from back in the day? That’s right, we’re looking to the stars to find out which childhood fave you need in your life, based on your zodiac sign.
It’s your time, Virgo! Your ruling planet, Mercury, starts the month in Libra and, later, goes retrograde. Mercury rules communication, so you may have some ups and downs this month, so be open and honest with your loved ones. Find strength in a childhood favorite: cheese and peanut butter sandwich crackers. This classic flavor duo will take you right back to when brutal honesty was easy and friendship came naturally. Ahhh, memories.
Venus starts the month in your corner, sweet Libra. Having your ruling planet on your side fuels your natural ability to charm and boosts your social battery. Later, Venus enters Scorpio which intensely amps up your emotions. In typical Libra fashion, sharing is caring. Bring back Scooby Doo fruit snacks to your lunch and don’t be afraid to share with your friends – keep the blue ones for yourself, of course.
Mysterious Scorpio – One of your ruling planets, Pluto, starts the month in Capricorn which has you ready to treat yourself. Spare your wallet, though, and think twice before you swipe. Channel disciplined Capricorn energy and remember: You can catch more flies with honey. In fact, you may catch more with a sweet snack that brings childlike wonder. Enter Circus Animal Cookies. This colorful snack will surely bring joy to your afternoons.
Fall is coming, Sagittarius! Get in your last bit of fun in the sun while you can. The month begins with Jupiter, your ruling planet, in Aquarius which has you feeling fun and fancy-free with a strong desire to spend time with friends. Remember to stay your easy-going self. Too much intensity may drive people away or cause unwanted tension. Bring back the simple memories of childhood munchies with Goldfish crackers.
Fearless Capricorn, your ruling planet, Saturn, spends September in Aquarius and is boosting your energy toward chasing your imagination. Not to mention, Virgo season is great for goal setting. Shoot for the moon, Capricorn, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. While you’re working hard to achieve your dreams, don’t forget to treat yourself every once in a while. Grab a good ol’ Cosmic Brownie to take you back to the school cafeteria – you deserve it!
Idealistic Aquarius, things haven’t been shaking out exactly how you want lately. But, in the long run, everything will turn out how it’s supposed to be. Toward the end of the month, Uranus enters Taurus which may lead to surprise. Taurus energy brings responsibility and devotion, so prepare for a new commitment. Make room for the old, though, and enjoy something old-school like your favorite flavor of Capri-Sun.
If you’re searching for your next move, now is a good time to really lean in, Pisces. Your ruling planet, Neptune, starts the month in your corner which helps you ask the tough questions. Examine your path and make sure you’re headed in the right direction – you got this. Settle any hesitations with a snack that will make you grin: Dunkaroos! This classic favorite will give you a throwback you need.
Mars, your ruling planet, starts the month in Virgo, so you’re feeling powerful and extra dedicated to your ambitions. Mars moves over to Libra later in the month which blends your boldness with a desire to lift others up. As they say, teamwork makes the dream work. For your nostalgic snack, go for a crowd-pleaser like Cheez Balls. This party favorite is sure to delight anyone you’re willing to share with.
Responsible Taurus, you may be tempted to spend frivolously this month as Venus, your ruling planet, sits in Libra while Pluto is in Capricorn. Fear not, your discipline will save you here and help you opt for a smaller treat instead. Take the opportunity to snack on something sweet and surprising: Gushers. This old-school snack will take you right back to the playground with a burst of flavor.
Mercury, your ruling planet, starts the month in Libra, giving you the strength to weigh your options and make a balanced decision on any major changes. Plus, Virgo season is a great time for you to learn new things. Later, Mercury goes retrograde which could shift your communications off balance, so tread lightly. Take a step back from everything going on and indulge in the lunch of champions, Lunchables.
Early in the month there’s a new moon in Virgo. Look out for any surprises that may come from loved ones feeling generous. On September 20th, the full moon rises in Pisces. Dreamy and imaginative, this is a great time to plan for future projects. You’ve got a lot to look forward to – add one more thing like a snack from your childhood lunchbox that’s cheesy and salty: Handi-Snacks.
Leo, your season may have ended, but it’s still all about you! The sun starts the month in Virgo which brings harmony to your work life. During the fall equinox, the sun enters Libra which has you feeling even more diplomatic. While everything is smooth sailing, it’s a great time to plan ahead and mix things up. Boost your confidence with a snack that’s comfortable and familiar like classic fruit cups.
