Are you a picky eater because of astrology? Since we know that our zodiac signs determine many things about our personalities, it’s not a huge stretch that they may influence how we deal with food. And for the zodiac signs who are picky eaters, you can't just blame it on a bad horoscope.

If you are fussy, stubborn, overcritical and determined, that's absolutely going to have something to do with how you view food. If you’re someone who delights in food being prepared well and served beautifully, you’re not going to be happy with something nutritious but tasteless.


You may be a picky eater for all kinds of reasons. If you don’t like one big food group like fish, you may not see yourself as a fussy-eater, but your family and friends might. Some picky eaters come from a completely visual point of view — if the food is a strange color or too messy, they’ll avoid it. Some people have trouble with mouthfeel and texture.

Then there are those who just don’t like food, have no appetite for it, and have to make a point to eat. They try to eat regularly but often skip meals or just have a piece of fruit rather than a well-balanced meal.


Food and the way we consume it is so wrapped up in our personalities that it’s not surprising our zodiac signs would influence us. So, who exactly are the zodiac signs who are picky eaters?

1. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos go all the way with their fussy eating. Not only do they have a long list of things they don't eat, they're also very concerned with germs. They'll wipe the silverware when they're out for dinner and may bring their own condiments and salad dressings.


They like their meals to be on a fixed schedule and they tend to exert a lot of control over what they do eat. Virgos are so specific on their order that the waiter must take notes to guarantee Virgo gets their food exactly as they want it.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)



Scorpios tend to eat the same things over and over again. They are extremely hesitant to try new foods or flavors. They've already figured out what they like so they don't need to add anything to their approved foods list.

When they go out to eat, they usually go to restaurants that they know, and they order the same thing. If their favorite is not offered, Scorpio can get very upset. They don't appreciate having to deviate from their set menu.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)



Taurus love well-prepared, delicious, and aesthetically pleasing food. Every detail matters to Taurus — not just the taste, but the shape, size, and texture too. If they're given something that doesn't fit their parameters, they'd rather not eat.

They like to make every meal a celebration. and eating something just because it's nutritious just doesn't cut it for them. You can call them picky, but they prefer to think of themselves as having high standards when it comes to food and eating.

4. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)



Capricorns are too busy to give food much thought, but they don't like food that is too messy, sloppy, or overdone. If you're going to put cheese on something, don't have the cheese overwhelm it.

Capricorns are known to deconstruct an entree just to get it the way they like it. They can also be meal-skippers because sometimes they just don't have the time or energy to eat. They definitely don't live to eat — they live to accomplish something and find their purpose, and food just helps them to do that.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)



Sagittarius tend to have a lot of self-diagnosed food allergies and sensitivities. Many of these are legitimate but some aren't, and rather than find out for sure, Sagittarius will decide on their own not to eat certain things.

The problem is as the list of foods they don't eat tends to grow, they don't substitute other things in, so not only do they not eat enough, they don't get a lot of the vitamins, minerals, and protein.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are all over the place when it comes to the foods they'll eat or not eat, and just when you think they've figured it out, it changes again. Pisces tend to have a fairly steady list of foods they will not eat, but then they'll add or take things off that list all the time.

Some of their food issues don't make any sense — they hate eggs but love mayonnaise, or they can't stand fish but love sushi. They will refuse to try something and won't eat it, and then one day, out of the blue, they'll decide they like it. If a Pisces is coming to your house for dinner, always check in with them first to make sure you're serving something that's on their approved list that day.
