It’s vegetable month at Kitchn and Mercury is retrograde, so there’s no better time to serve up a selection of extremely accurate vegetable horoscopes! No matter what your zodiac sign is, there’s a vegetable soul mate out there for you, written in the stars. Are you a crucifer? Root vegetable? Squash? We did the soul searching/star gazing so you don’t have to.

Aquarius | Celery

Don’t be surprised if you, the water bearing sign, find yourself inexplicably craving (somewhat controversial) celery juice: It’s 95 percent water.

Pisces | Zucchini

Like you, zucchini is mild and quick to absorb the flavors of its surroundings. Also, like you, if left alone long enough, it will turn into a pile of mush.

Aries | Habanero Pepper

May you always have the confidence to take on the challenges of your daily adventures … like eating a super-spicy pepper and going back for more.

Taurus | Sweet Potato

These tubers are comforting, earthy, soul-satisfying, and, most importantly, delicious. You like them most in fry form.

Gemini | Brussels Sprouts

There are lots of layers to you, which is why you’re sometimes hard to figure out. Best when roasted.

Cancer | Creamed Corn

Has anyone ever told you that you’re a total mush? That you melt into a puddle of emotions at the drop of a fork? You’re not regular corn, you’re creamed corn.

Leo | Watermelon Radish

Heads will turn when this heaven-sent veg makes a rare appearance on the produce shelf. Like you, there’s nothing else quite like it.

Virgo | Cauliflower

You swear that every meal you make using cauliflower as a substitute tastes exactly like the real thing. “You’d never even know this cupcake was made from cauliflower!”

Try a recipe: Kung Pao Cauliflower

Libra | Kale

Green smoothie for breakfast, and pizza for dinner. Life is all about balance, right?

Scorpio | Eggplant

No vegetable is as highly misunderstood as the eggplant. It’s okay, we see you, and we understand you in your most superior form: Parmesan-ified.

Sagittarius | Rhubarb

Rhubarb is not always available (like you!), but when it is, everyone clamors for a piece of the pie. (And yes, it’s really a vegetable, not a fruit!)

Capricorn | Artichoke

Sure, it takes a ton of effort to prep an artichoke, but in the end, all the work is totally worth it.
