An astrologer shares whether you should order Thin Mints, Trefoils, or Tagalongs.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas—it's Girl Scout cookie season! And whether you have a Girl Scout in your life, buy from a troop's booth in front of your local grocery store, or order online, you've undoubtedly got your favorite flavors. But with so many cookies to choose from—and several new varieties this year (we're looking at you, Raspberry Rally)—it can be hard to narrow things down. That's why we enlisted the help of professional astrologer, tarot reader, and self-professed cookie lover Theresa Reed to share which Girl Scout cookie you should eat, based on your zodiac sign. Will you be enjoying classic Thin Mints or will the Caramel deLites catch your eye? Keep reading to find out.

Aries: Raspberry Rally
Aries are the daring and adventurous leaders of the zodiac who are always game to try something new. "Naturally, they'll be first in line for the brand-new Raspberry Rally cookies," says Reed. Though they look similar to a traditional Thin Mint, these crisp cookies are packed with fresh fruit flavor that makes them stand out. And considering they're widely sold out, you'll love having the bragging rights to getting your hands on a box.
Taurus: Caramel Chocolate Chip
Taurus loves all things delicious and indulgent, especially anything that can satisfy your sweet tooth. Since you have no problem treating yourself, Reed suggests grabbing a box of decadent Caramel Chocolate Chip. These chewy cookies have a swirl of rich caramel and a hint of sea salt, and they're gluten-free. Normally, you're one for sharing, but we won't blame you if you keep this box to yourself!

Gemini: Tagalongs / Peanut Butter Patties
Geminis like a little bit of everything, and that rings true for your taste in desserts. "Peanut Butter Patties, also called Tagalongs, mimic Gemini's salty-sweet disposition," Reed explains. These crispy cookies are layered with peanut butter and covered in chocolate, so if you're feeling indecisive (which you usually are!), they check all the boxes. And for the zodiac's social butterfly, they're a great option to put out at a get-together.
Cancer: Do-Si-Dos / Peanut Butter Sandwiches
Cancer is the homebody of the zodiac and nothing speaks to you more than nostalgic flavors that remind you of childhood. "Do-si-dos are about as Cancerian as you can get—oatmeal cookies with a peanut butter filling," says Reed. "These treats are sure to feed Cancer's soul." While these cookies are delicious on their own, we recommend heating them a bit in the microwave to get the perfect ooey-gooey center—a nice touch the next time a loved one comes over looking for a shoulder to cry on.

Leo: Caramel DeLites
When it comes to choosing a sweet treat, you like your dessert to be just as over-the-top and exciting as you are. "Caramel DeLites (also known as Samoas) pull out all the stops and flavors—caramel, chocolate, coconut, all on top of a crisp cookie," says Reed. And the fact that you were able to snag these fan-favorite cookies amidst this year's Samoa shortage means that you'll be getting all the attention you love.
Virgo: Thin Mints
"Virgo is the zodiac's perfectionist. They are also known for liking simplicity," says Reed. "Thin Mints measure up to their desire for a perfectly balanced and delicious cookie." For you, less is more, and that's definitely true with this cookie. You'll appreciate the fact that Thin Mints were among the original Girl Scout cookies and that, today, they are the best-selling cookie. No room for error here!

Libras like to indulge in all of life's pleasures, and dessert is no different. You tend to keep your sweets on the lighter side, choosing treats with bright and natural flavors. "Libra appreciates gorgeous design. Lemonades are as pretty as a lemon slice but way more delicious," says Reed. "For artsy Libra, this is about as balanced and lovely as it gets." These savory and refreshing shortbread cookies come topped with zesty lemon icing for a pick-me-up in every bite.
Scorpio: Girl Scout S'mores
Scorpio isn't afraid to indulge, and that's probably why you prefer desserts with deep, complex flavors—adjectives that can also describe your personality. "Dark nights, bonfires, and sweetness—there's a reason Scorpio can't help but love Girl Scout S'mores," Reed says. "Scorpio appreciates the richness and hidden layers of deliciousness. Plus: they don't have to bother with the fire to enjoy this lusciousness."

Free-spirited and open-minded, Sagittarius is one of the most adventurous eaters. "Folks born under the sign of the Archer are always up for anything," says Reed. You're also the world traveler of the zodiac, so she recommends "fun and portable" Adventurefuls, adding that the chewy, caramel brownie-inspired cookies are "perfect for the last-minute jaunts to parts unknown Sagittarius favors."
Capricorns like to enjoy sweets in moderation and prefer a simple recipe with quality ingredients over something too over the top. "Capricorns love a good classic anything," notes Reed, and is there anything more classic than a shortbread cookie? "Trefoils are elegant and always in style and taste," she adds. As the most hardworking zodiac sign, it might be a good idea to keep a box in your office desk drawer so you can enjoy them with a cup of coffee when you need a pick-me-up.

Aquarians like to step outside their comfort zone, so it's no surprise you experiment with new foods. You're drawn to unconventional flavor combinations, remakes of old classics, and anything out of the ordinary. "Toffee-tastic captures Aquarius' unique spirit," says Reed. "They'll love the rich caramel flavors in this delicious sweet treat, not to mention the surprise crunch in every bite." Plus, they're gluten-free, so you can share them with all your friends.
You're very in touch with your emotions and like to turn to your favorite comfort foods, regardless of whether you're feeling high or low. "Pisces are as sweet as sugar. These compassionate souls need something that matches their warm personalities," shares Reed. "Toast-yay's cinnamon sugar is both comforting and spicy." The French toast-inspired cookie will have you daydreaming about cozy breakfasts spent with loved ones.
