Do you like to cook with many spices or only a little? On June 10th, Herbs and Spices Day celebrates the diversity and quality of herbs and spices, both fresh and dried. It is essential to cook with herbs and spices all year long. Cooking with fresh herbs will brighten your grill and kitchen as summer arrives.
Aside from adding flavor to your meals, herbs and spices add color, bringing vibrancy that might otherwise be lacking. Let’s review what spice matches your zodiac sign and see if it resonates with you.
Aries – Chili Powder
Aries, you are energetic, hot-tempered, competitive, and daring, and you are also motivating and uplifting to those around you. If you were to be compared to a spice, then chili powder would be the best comparison. Chili powder can pack a punch, and most people can only handle a sprinkle of it in their recipes to kick it. They want enough of it to uplift the flavor, but too much of it may be too like the Aries-like temper, and you know that no one wants to get you angry. It is extremely bold, just like Aries.
Taurus – Bay Seasoning
Taurus, you are devoted, responsible, stoic, hardworking, and reliable but can be quite stubborn. If there is a spice that matches who you are, that would be Bay seasoning, which is a mix of salt, pepper, and paprika, and it is a reliable spice that you can sprinkle on poultry, seafood, beef, pork, veggies, dips, and other dishes. Taurus, you also love and feel safest in your comfort zone, and the thing with Bay seasoning is that it provides you with that predictable flavor as there are no surprises with it.
Gemini – Vanilla Extract
Gemini, you are versatile and expressive, and you have a charm about you. The ideal spice or flavoring that is for Gemini is the vanilla extract. It provides a way to express itself when you use it for baked goods, gives it its brilliant flavor based on its charm, and is versatile. You can use vanilla extract for many uses that do not involve cooking, such as being a fridge deodorizer, freshening up the microwave, and even an insect repellent. That spice is perfect for you.
Cancer – Ginger
Cancer, you are nurturing and caring and want to keep your family, home, and friends safe. The spice that fits who you are on every level is ginger. That is because ginger is known to be a healing spice, and when it comes to adding ginger to dishes, there is a warm touch; that is what Cancer does when providing and showing care. Cancer adds a warm touch to those who they nurture. What does anyone do when there is an upset stomach? They grab some ginger because it is meant to make anyone feel better, like Cancer.
Leo – Cardamom

Despite Leo’s need for attention, Leo does have some warm traits and is caring and generous, and cardamom also provides some excellent health benefits.
Virgo – Rosemary
Virgo, you are analytical, more traditional, and work and service-oriented. The spice that matches you the most is rosemary. It is a traditional spice that needs to be added to dishes carefully, or else you will end up with a dish with a pungent taste and smell, so you need to be careful and analytical when adding the spice to dishes. However, when you add the perfect amount of rosemary to your dishes, it not only has a nice flavor and aroma but also contains health benefits as it helps raise your energy levels. You need extra energy to work, after all.
Libra – Mint

Those who know how potent tarragon is are brave enough to try it, and you are brave enough to try anything.
Sagittarius – Curry
Sagittarius, you are adventurous, and you love to explore different cultures, and you are happy with leaving your comfort zone because you are the one that wants to live your life to the fullest.
