Find The Perfect Wine And Queso Pairing For Your Zodiac Sign

Between red, rosé, white or blends, people’s favorite wine can not only divide them amongst friends but it also says a lot about their personality. If you’ve ever found yourself at the bar wanting to order something fancy but can’t tell apart a Merlot from a Pinot Grig to “what in the world is a Gewurztraminer?!,” look no further than our guide on the best wine for your zodiac sign. Make yourself a winning charcuterie with the perfect cheeses to go with that glass and enjoy a pairing that truly reflects you.

Aries: Apothic Inferno and Smoked Gouda

Aries are known for their fiery and stubborn temperament and impatience, so if you’re an Aries and need to a wind after a long day of being a boss, you like to turn to a red wine. There’s something about that deep devilish color that makes you feel empowered, which is why we love Apothic Inferno Red as the quintessential wine for an intense ram. Aged in whiskey barrels, this wine comes with that extra kick that’s as badass as you are. Pair with a smoked gouda for a flavor that’s as bold as your personality.

Taurus: Red Burgundy and Pistachio and Fig Goat Cheese

Bulls are all about the finer things, which is why you definitely expect no less when it comes to your wine. A red Burgundy from France has your name written all over it, Taurus. It’s refined, delicious, and very expensive — just how you like everything. This Pinot Noir pairs best with a goat cheese, but if you really want your Taurean stamp on it, bougie up that chevre even more by opting for one with fig or pistachio to truly please your rich palette.

Gemini: Moscato and Brie

Twin Geminis thrive on duality, so when it comes to your taste buds, you crave sweet as much as you do salty and savory. The perfect wine for a Gemini is a sweet Moscato, something fruity and still a bit fancy. Noted with apricot, peach, and nectarine, this pairs beautifully with the savory flavors of soft cheeses like goat or brie. A citrusy glass with a bit of chevre? This pairing is as likable as you are.

Cancer: Tempranillo and smoked meats

Strong-willed and clever, Cancers need a wine as strong as their dignity. Reach from your protective little shell for a Tempranillo from Spain, a ruby red wine known for its notes of berries, vanilla, and tobacco. You’re all about creature comforts and this wine will definitely taste like home, which is why we suggest opting for some warm comfort food over traditional cheese pairings for this particular wine. Sip a glass with a bit of lasagna or smoked meats and kick up those precious ‘lil crab legs, Cancer.

Leo: Cabernet Sauvignon and Asiago

Ah, what wine could possibly be suitable for someone as regal as a Leo? You’re a leader, an attention-grabber, and as dignified as they come. A red Bourdeaux Cabernet Sauvignon is you in a bottle, my royal lion! With notes of currant, plum, and cedar, this French wine will have you saying “oui oui oui!” to another glass. Cabs go best with nutty, aged cheese, so pick out a block of some bold aged Asiago or Parmigiano while you watch over your kingdom.

Virgo: Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese

Grounded and reliable, a Virgo expects the same from their wine. Every Virgo should reach for a Sauvignon Blanc if they want something as down-to-earth as themselves. This wine has grassy notes of herb and citrus that are just as balanced as your personality. Nom on some goat cheese and maybe even add some greens like asparagus or zucchini and a plate of oysters for some time to reflect on how you always get things right the first time — just like your vin et fromage!

Libra: Sparkling White and Camembert

For Libras, your wine consumption probably means you love finding any excuse to celebrate with friends. As a very social sign of the zodiac, you view drinking spirits as something done in the festive company of others. For the outgoing people person that you are, nothing says a great night like a fun sparkling white as bubbly as your personality! Since this spirit is dry, a soft and creamy cheese creates the perfect balance in taste and texture, so slice up that brie or camembert and share with friends for a fun and lively evening.

Scorpio: Syrah and Manchego

The tannin-packed dark and sexy flavor of a Syrah is Scorpio in a bottle. Too bad there’s no way you could ever put a cork on your passionate nature, saucy Scorpion! You’d be a fool to think a Scorpio would be seen drinking anything other than a deep red, and nothing matches their personality more than the full-bodied punch of flavor of a Syrah and its peppery aftertaste. Just like your old soul, partake in a nutty aged cheese like a Manchego as you eye everyone who isn’t as cool as you.

Sagittarius: Malbec and Aged Cheddar

For someone as a clear-thinking as my centaur explorers, you need a wine that envigorates that sense of adventure in you. Look no further than the ever-drinkable Malbec from Argentina. With its plush taste and ripe tannins, this smooth red perfectly fits one of your chill nights spent only with a couple of your closest friends, as Sagittarians like to do. Cut up some aged cheddar while you talk about your big picture ideas for the rest of the night!

Capricorn: Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar

Practical, ambitious, and wise, the classic Cabernet Sauvignon simply screams ultimate Capricorn. You work hard and need a drink that matches your drive, which is exactly the popular regality of a good, bold cab. Aged, nutty cheeses go best with this type of red, so go for something fun like an aged cheddar with caramelized onion to celebrate your latest achievement you undoubtedly just conquered like the hard-working boss babe you are.

Aquarius: Orange Wine and Gruyer

Aquarians are one of the most offbeat and unpredictable signs of the zodiac. You’re funny, smart, but also a huge humanitarian with a big heart and a socially-responsible outlook at life. For quirky Aquarians, go for something like an orange wine, a skin-contact wine soaked in citrus peels with a bold, nutty flavor. This unconventional wine flavor sums up the water-bearing Aquarius’ individuality and complements with the flavors of something like a gruyere cheese to really stand out from the pack.

Pisces: Rosé and Feta

Sweet, dreamy Pisces, is there any wine that seems more well-matched for your light and earthy persona than the summer Rosé? The popular sunny day spirit of choice is a no-brainer for our sincere Pisces. Just like our last night of the zodiac, Rosé is actually one of the oldest forms of wine and has probably seen as many past lives as you, my fish friend. Pair a glass with some chunks of creamy feta or Havarti to bring out the fruity and floral flavors of the Rosé. It’s sweet and well-liked, just like you!

Your Weekly Horoscope For The Week Of December 3rd According To Guacardo

Your Weekly Horoscope For The Week Of December 3rd According To Guacardo

The weight from our final Mercury retrograde of the year lifts on Thursday and, boy, aren’t we glad to leave that notorious backward spin in the dust! As we enter the holiday season and the final month of the year, issues that became hazy during the last three weeks become so clear that a lot of you may be feeling an epiphany. Be that in work, love, or your living situation, prepare to enter the latter half of the first week of December with a wonderfully refreshed outlook!

Aries

From finances to sexuality, your mind is such a jumble this week that you can’t seem to focus on which one is more important or how to go about it. It’s hard to make decisions when Mercury is in retrograde, especially when he’s out there continuously throwing things off as is. Fortunately, that pesky planet turns direct in your sign on Thursday, finally bringing you the clarity to tackle whatever important issues need attention in your life.

Taurus

Paranoia about the way things are going in your life only increases confusion and miscommunication this week. By addressing issues head-on, you can get the clarity you need and have a conversation about your concerns. In terms of your love life, not hashing things out only creates a disaster. Fortunately, this won’t be the case. Worrying only creates more problems, while clear communication this week provides a breath of fresh air between you and your love. Embrace this soulful connection!

Gemini

Expect a glowing, romantic week that’s nothing short of a fairy tale, Gemini! On the 7th, a New Moon in your partnership sector will see a major level up in your personal game of love! Whether that means making it official, moving in together, or tying the knot, you’ll have more sweet bliss than you’ll know what to do with. What a fun problem to have!

Cancer

You might be feeling some trust issues with those closest to you this week, Cancer. Either you’re starting to put two and two together in terms of shady things they’ve done or said (or haven’t said!). You’re right to be skeptical, as it’s a reminder to put your needs first. Is this someone you’re ready to commit to? Your decision-making clears up on Thursday when you’re better able to access the situation and trust your intuition.

Leo

Say hello to your fiery love life, my feisty Leo! On Friday, a New Moon occurs in your love life sector, setting your romance world aflame. Jupiter’s in your corner, the planet of luck, and it feels like nothing could go wrong. The feeling’s right! For those who are single, you might meet “The One” this week, while attached Leos might feel a stronger bond with their special someone. This luck will carry over to your work life as well, so take advantage of any and all opportunities.

Virgo

You’re living in a bit of a fantasy this week, Virgo, as a conjunction between Mars and Neptune in your partnership sector ignites both dreams as well as well your drive to make them happen. You and your partner might get a little extra freaky this week as you explore new things together. Nice! Basically, whatever is on your mind right now, you’ll more than likely be able to make happen. You’ll feel as if you’re actually made of magic!

Libra

You’ve most likely been doing the heavy lifting in more than one situation in your life, and this week you’ll really feel it. The resentment from always having to clean up someone else’s messes who won’t hold themselves accountable for their actions reaches its final straw with you, and you might just combust from the build up. Don’t feel bad about an outburst – you’re the one being taken advantage of. Stand your ground and own up to how you’re feeling so you can either mend it or cut that person out.

Scorpio

Clarity is wonderfully bestowed upon you this week when Mercury turns direct in your sign on Thursday. If you’ve felt misunderstood in any aspects of your life lately, it’s been causing you to retreat into self-doubt and depression. As Mercury allows you to say what’s on your mind, you’ll learn that nothing can get better without speaking your mind. If you don’t, you’ll only continue to stay in that recluse state you’ve put yourself in. 

Sagittarius

A fresh start is in the cards for this week when a New Moon in your sign on Friday connects to Jupiter, showering you with all the luck. Whatever you feel in your heart, follow that desire to watch just about anything you’ve been hoping for come true. Talk about manifesting, Sag! Strike while the iron’s hot!

Capricorn

Are you getting some steamy signals from a platonic friend this week and not sure what to do about it? With Mercury retrograde in your sign and moving through your friendship sector, things might be buzzing off with someone you’ve only considered a pal. Are you reading the situation correctly or is this person really laying on the hints right now? Mercury turns direct in your sign on Thursday, which means you’ll be able to more clearly decide on whatever path you want to take with this situation. 

Aquarius

With Mercury finally turning direct on Thursday, a career decision you’ve been weighing on finally becomes clear. That is to say that we hope you held off on making big choices during Mercury retrograde, Aquarius! Confide in loved ones when it comes to narrowing down your choices, as you’ll find lots of good advice from those close to you. Sometimes you just need an outside perspective in order to make the decision that’s right for you, and, fortunately, this person is very much on your side.  

Pisces

You might unintentionally be finding yourself retrospective this week, Pisces, but if there’s one thing you’re good at, it’s living in your head. You’ll likely put a magnifying glass on your personal life, questioning why you’re really with the person you’ve chosen to commit to. Is it really love or have you let mere physical attraction go further than anticipated? Is this partnership truly grounded? Your passions and feelings ebb and flow on any given day this week and you’re not sure which feeling is the truest. Consider this, though – if you have to question it in the first place, was it right all along? Trust that fishy intuition.

Your Horoscope For The Final Month Of November Is All About Shmoney Moves

As we enter the second week of Mercury retrograde, you may have not only experienced those slight delays and technical issues that come with this mighty planet’s backward spin, but communication and clear decisions can easily become hazy. Remember not to worry about making big choices during this time, and instead choose to ultimately roll with the punches. Advice can come unsolicited, so it’s important that all signs opt to do what’s best for you above anything else. People can become exhausting during times like these, but that doesn’t mean you have to let their words affect you.

Aries

Good or bad, expect a shake-up in your relationship status this week, Aries. That can either mean an exciting new relationship or an abrupt ending to a current one. Mercury retrograde is brewing its drastic changes in your sign, Ram, so don’t be surprised when you don’t even know what hit you. If you’re happy in your current relationship, you and your partner will finally reach some massive clarity about your pairing that will better serve you both. Is that worth sticking it out or calling it off? We’ll see what this week has in store for you!

Taurus

Your theme for November was to take a break from all that bull-like work ethic to open yourself up to love and loving yourself, Taurus, and this last few days of the month will definitely be the peak of that. If you’re feeling trapped in whatever romantic situation you’re currently, prepare for the floodgates to open for a positive release of all that water. Stop holding back about how you truly feel, because once you reveal what’s actually pouring through your soul, the universe is prepared to reward you for it.

Gemini

Some much-needed life enhancements are awaiting you this week, Gemini! The Sun and Jupiter line up in your partnership sector on the 26th, opening the road for clear conversation between you and your partner that will put your mind and your heart at ease. This week is all about the connection between you and your mate as you embark on a brand new and exciting journey together.

Cancer

Is this crab ready to switch up shells, or even the beach where you choose to plant that shell? Exciting new career advancements may bring the opportunity for relocation in exchange for your dream job, but what does this mean for your love life? On Saturday, Venus re-enters your love sector after just finishing it’s retrograde, meaning decisions about what to do with a potential or long-term suitor will become much clearer and easier to make. It also means the opportunity for a brand new one on the horizon!

Leo

You have gotten yourself trapped in a box regarding a life situation recently, but this week you’ll be able to open it. Things will finally become clear on how to tackle something you’ve been trying to get done, and communication between you and your mate will not only be better but so will the roads up that open to make these actions possible. You may revel in the joy that is a stronger connection or realize that your relationship isn’t as strong as you had been telling yourself it was. As is the case when Mercury is in retrograde!

Virgo 

You’ve been working hard to get your finances in order this month and should have started to see the payoff, but this week might find you having to help someone else who’s not in as great of a financial position themselves. This will leave you feeling somewhat resentful for having to help clean up someone else’s mess, someone not as responsible and focused as yourself, yet you want to help them nonetheless. Be careful of burning your hard-earned cash on a friend who can’t take responsibility for their own actions! Reckless spending is not what you’re about.

Libra

The latter half of this month has been all about showcasing your sexual energy, but this week could see that sexiness become unstable. You’ll find it hard to be on the same page about something with a partner, but does the problem need to change or just how you respond to it? Partnerships are about listening and compromise, so just because your love doesn’t see things the way you do doesn’t necessarily mean they are wrong. Adjusting how you handle what your love life throws at you will serve you better as Venus and Uranus hectically oppose one another in your relationship sector.

Scorpio

Mercury is in retrograde, yet moves into your sign on November 30th, followed by Venus moving in on Saturday. This combination is ripe for bountiful sexual energy, yet the type that can be confused or unclear. Maybe you’re not sure about what choice to make in your love life or are giving off misleading signals. Who really cares about making a decision right now, though? At the moment, you’ll be all about the attention you’re receiving from your magical Scorpio vamp status!

Sagittarius

Expect a jolt to the heart this week that will have you floating on the Cloud 9 of love. Your expression of compassion and focusing on yourself earlier in the month serves you well now when it seems that anything this week can’t possibly conclude without anything short of a happy ending. However, Mercury’s retrograde might create some misunderstandings at work, so just remember to keep a cool head and not let minor flubs get the best of you. Nothing can bring you down this week!

Capricorn

Your friends are quick to lend their advice this week without you even really asking for it. Needing to talk things out and get things off your chest might be interpreted as seeking opinions on how you should be living your life, but remember that they are not the ones living it for you. While moral support is appreciated, don’t take someone else’s words too close to heart if it’s not the decision that feels right for you this week. Great conversations are in store for you this week, so use the opportunity to listen and grow in a way that suits you and only you the best.

Aquarius

Mercury retrograde is bringing you to a crossroad in your career, but, fortunately for you, either option seems beneficial. It’s hard when either decision could be a good one, so take the time to really think about what’s best for you and not let other’s get in your ear. This same positive energy lends itself to your relationship sector, where single Aquarians might be at the receiving end of an important person’s gaze. Is a successful and well-respected individual romantically eyeing you? Lucky you!

Pisces

A legal situation might arise this week, and if Mercury retrograde has anything to do with it, it’s definitely regarding something rooted in the past, possibly even from earlier this year. Fortunately, this dilemma will go in your favor, especially with a helpful support system having your back. Speaking of the past, a former lover could pop up this week, ironically as you begin a new creative or work endeavor. Good thing this will actually turn out to be a positive run-in!
