There are people who casually consume their daily horoscope and there are people who take astrology very seriously. For the people in the second camp, "What's your sign?" isn't an annoying first-date question — it's a window into who a person really is. By hearing that someone is a Gemini or an Aquarius, the astrology buff immediately gets a sense of what that person is all about.
For you zodiac enthusiasts, we've rounded up 10 astrology-themed items that'll help your kitchen shine.
- Astrology Matchboxes, $11 at Waiting on Martha: These extra-large matches are great to have handy in the kitchen, and their decorative zodiac boxes (available for each sign) make them even better.
- Zodiac Oval Soaps, $15 at Fresh: Ditch that cheap hand soap you have by your sink and embrace these cute soaps, created in conjunction with Fresh and famed astrologer Susan Miller to reflect the properties of each individual sign.
- Zodiac Mugs, $15 at The Mugs Boutique: Whatever your sign is, you'll love drinking your morning coffee out of a mug that's personalized with your zodiac sign symbol. Trust us — it's in the stars!

- Zodiac Coasters, $5 each at Kimberly Gift: These coasters — created by designer Thomas Paul — depict the symbols of zodiac signs (the scales for Libras, the lion for Leos, and so on). They're sold individually, so you can buy a mismatched set to represent everyone in your home, or you can get a few for your own personal sign.
