Aries: Ice Cream

Symbolized by the ram, Aries is known for being independent, determined, and assertive. Lovers of exploring, they'll benefit from a dessert that offers variety, like ice cream, says Rebecca M. Farrar, MA, astrologer and founder of Wild Witch West.

"Ice cream may be a natural balancing to this ambitious fire sign," Farrar explains. And with a multitude of flavors to choose from, adventurous Aries will never get bored.

If there's one sign associated with a love of food, it's Taurus. They enjoy indulging, which is why Farrar says the best thing to order is something with an extra dash of sugar, like a decadent white cake with sprinkles.

Always living life to the fullest, Taurus is going to enjoy every last bite, even down to the icing on their fingers, she adds.

For indecisive Gemini, who gets bored easily, a perfect dessert has to come in a variety of flavors, which is why Lauren Ash, a professional astrologer, writer, and podcast host, recommends macarons.

"These sweet multi-colored French pastries have the ideal balance of crisp cookie outside and delicious filling," Ash says. "Plus, they are bite-sized and easy to share with friends," which is important for this social butterfly

Cancer: Chocolate Chip Cookie

There are few things that Cancers love more than feeling at home. That's why this sensitive sign should order a comforting dessert like a chocolate chip cookie.

Farrar says this choice "warms the soul," perfect for Cancer's nurturing nature. Even better, as Cancers often "excel at baking," they can make their own batch of chocolate chip cookies to share with their loved ones.

Leo: Walnut Cake

Leos are confident leaders who are driven to succeed. But with that in mind, they also have a thirst for power. According to Lorena Thomascertified astrologer and writer at herway, that's why they should reach for walnut cake when considering dessert choices.

"It shouldn't come as a surprise that they love eating nuts, which are associated with potency," she says.

Virgo: Mint Chocolate Cake

Sensible and practical are two words often attributed to Virgos, so naturally, they're very health-conscious. When it comes to dessert, therefore, Virgos may be drawn to those with fragrant herbs.

"Virgo is associated with mint," Thomas says. And since they also appreciate tradition, a classic chocolate frosting will be the perfect pairing for these perfectionists.

Libra: Banana Split

In addition to their extroverted and charming nature, Libras are often indecisive. Therefore, Thomas recommends a banana split. "Could anyone really expect a Libra to choose one dessert only? They get both ice cream and fruit, all in one."

And since Libras are also known for their appreciation of the finer (and more attractive) things in life, "the most important thing here is for it to be served perfectly and to look nice," Thomas adds.

Scorpio: Dark Chocolate Cake

As a sign that is loyal, stoic, and bold, Scorpio can also have an intense dark side. That's why a richly flavored dark chocolate cake should be top-of-mind for this water sign.

Thomas says their taste for bold chocolate doesn't have to be limited to cake. "Sometimes a bar of dark chocolate itself will be enough. What matters is that Scorpio's favorite dessert is rich in flavor."

Sagittarius yearns for adventure and shuns the traditional, which is why they'll always go for the unconventional choice on a dessert menu.

"So, what better choice than an exotic fruit cake?" Thomas says. This spontaneous sign will love the flavors that remind them of all their world travels.

Capricorn: Cheesecake

Much like Cancers, practical Capricorns prefer traditional desserts, and there are few things more classic than a cheesecake. This choice also speaks to Capricorn's cost-conscious ways.

"Capricorn appreciates tradition, and cheesecake can be a secure choice no matter where," Farrar says. "It's just simple enough to feel like a splurge, and hopefully not too expensive."

Aquarius: Milkshake

Aquarius is often described as eccentric, optimistic, and just a tad rebellious. That's why the best dessert for this sign is a little offbeat.

"What makes the milkshake a perfect fit for Aquarius is how customizable you can get," shares Ash. "From the ice cream flavor of your base to the syrups, sauces, fruits, and mix-ins, they'll never get bored of the options available."

Pisces: Tiramisu

One of the more sympathetic signs, Pisces are famously generous and wise. But Pisces also has trouble coming back down to earth sometimes, and that imaginative nature applies to their dessert choices.

"This dreamy sign may prefer tiramisu," Farrar says, adding that Pisces will appreciate the spirits in the dessert, which is traditionally made with dark rum, marsala wine, amaretto, or coffee liqueur.
