Aquarius (January 20- February 18)
The water flowing through your veins helps keep December smooth sailing for you. If you run a business, the crazy hours, calls, and donning multiple hats are coming together to reward you. On the other hand, if 9 to 5 is your jive, make sure to not let the year-end frenzy get between you and your higher-ups and work shall be a treat. The holiday madness at family gatherings might seem a tad much, but it wouldn’t add up to any eggnog-induced brawl, so you can sit back and relax with your loved ones. Being the environmentally conscious and socially aware bearer, you do your bit to be mindful of the extravagance of this season and reach out to healthy & sustainable food, with just a sliver of plum cake on the side.

As we fold the cards for this year, you’re showing up all aces. Travel, success, love- you name it and the fishes have it this month! The stars throw light on a vacation for your overworked soul, and while there is recognition for those long hours spent at the desk rather than treating taste buds, the celestial bodies ask you to stop, look at what’s essential, shed the excess & only go forward with work that adds to you.

As you spend this month looking for beauty in everything, may we suggest a Lemon Meringue Pie to keep up with your pretty & fluffy wishes.

With the year end ringing in, it’s time for you to ram your affairs in order. On the work front you need to put pending plans in order, as that is what will set the tone of your first quarter of 2017.

A stitch in time saves nine is all what December is about for the twins- it’s a good thing they have two pairs of hands then (nope, we ain’t gonna apologise for that one)! The Mercury Retrograde is here to tell you to make back-up plans for all things finance and business, as the course of action will be uncertain until February 2017.

Maintaining the balance seems to be the calling for you this month, and what better than snacks to help with that! This Hummus & Crudités recipe will aid the chowing without any belly-growing this Christmas for you.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Your loyal and generous self may usually be the giver, but the next four weeks turn the tables and you receive unconditional support.

The month is in sync with your moody & spontaneous personality, and a traditional dish like Mutton Kofta is what you need to feel at home.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
It’s the season of love for all you lions out there! Romance takes centerstage in your mind, body, and soul this December. While you & your partner enjoy la vie en rose, the Sun is in a skirmish with Saturn over you, which means you may face a few hurdles when it comes to work and health. But you bring on your king of the jungle jam and come out of it sans scars, set to walk into the new year with happy feet. To go with that roar we have a Whole Chicken recipe for you, as no less will cater to a lion appetite!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The virgins channel their inner perfectionist without hesitation this December. They may be picked on for being too meticulous at times, but it is that very quality which will see them through this roller coaster month. While you resort to the practical perspective in relations, things stay complicated this month, and the health is none too bright either, perhaps because of the stress you put yourself under. The silver lining is your professional front, where you seem to be going places, regardless of your chosen field. To keep things light & get back on the fitness track a lean Teriyaki Chicken Salad is our pick for you!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
It’s time to wield that affable nature, Oh Libran! Relations & work may get demanding, though if you have a significant other then your love is set to diffuse like a teabag in hot water. The ones feeling alone during the Christmas craze have less to worry, someone is about to saunter in and make that mistletoe magic work for you. So get cracking on that inherent knack for maintaining balance and turn those bumps into joy rides- this Minestrone Soup will prove to be the perfect companion along the way!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The year end is asking you to file in your reviewal, and it’s time to take a step back and look at the direction your life’s headed in through new glasses. With Mars and Saturn waltzing in your zone, the month is by no means at beginner level, but hey, once you’re through it you get to flaunt that badge of honour! That calls for some comfort food, and with your food antenna constantly swaying between traditional & experimental a Chilli Hot Chocolate or Chilli Dark Chocolate Ice Cream will do the trick this December.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You’re going home with all ‘A’s on your report card this year! The patience, perseverance, and practice motto you’ve sown throughout the year is bringing you major rewards now, both personal & professional. The truth-seeking archer can rejoice with this show of karma. With the celebratory mode on & Santa’s visit not far away, what better than Eggnog to spread the joy!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
It’s mind over matter for you goats out there. A dark secret or a confidential project you’ve been guarding for sometime now needs to be shared with a confidante. Striking opportunities may present themselves, but it’s best to give rest to that impulse and hold off any decision making until January. While we’re going the conventional way in all these aspects, your food follows suit and Plum Cakes make your December.
