According to Your Zodiac, Which Cheese Is Your Valentine?


Stop swiping on Tinder right now: We think there’s a more important match for you that’s written in the stars (spoiler alert: it’s cheese). Astrology can tell us a lot about ourselves, like inherent traits, interpersonal compatibilities, and even future events. But we think it also has the power to match us with our curd-filled soulmates. So—although no one asked for this—we took the liberty of matching each Zodiac sign with their ultimate cheesy match, according to common traits and tendencies. Grab the accoutrements, fire up the rom-coms, and get ready to snuggle up with  your kindred wedge. 


Aries (March 20–April 19): Ricotta

These two are a no-brainer together; Ricotta’s fresh and bright characteristics match the energetic and cheerful energy of an Aries. Plus: Ricotta is extremely versatile (a game-changer in anything from waffles to cheesecake to flatbreads), so it can keep up with Aries’ susceptibility to boredom.


Taurus (April 19–May 20): Rush Creek Reserve

Taureans are known for their love of the finer things in life, and they won’t settle for anything less—especially on Valentine’s Day. That’s why we paired them with the extremely rich, indulgent, and award-winning Rush Creek Reserve. This seasonal wheel is extremely sought-after and known as much for its visual beauty as it is for its mouthwatering flavor, satisfying all of Taurean’s aesthetic desires.


Gemini (May 20–June 21): Époisses

Named after the celestial twins, Geminis are often misunderstood as being two-faced or disingenuous—but that’s often not the case! Equally misjudged is stinky washed-rind Époisses, whose strong exterior aroma is much more pungent than the flavor awaiting underneath the surface. Époisses’ contrast of colors (orange on the outside, white on the inside) also reflects Gemini’s intrinsic duality. 


Cancer (June 21–July 22): Taleggio

Cancers have a well-known soft and sensitive side that would be complemented by this mild and creamy Italian washed rind. The ideal base for any comfort meal, Taleggio is Cancer’s go-to partner for a soothing Valentine’s night in.


Leo (July 22–August 22): Burrata 

Burrata is sexy and it knows it—much like a Leo. The oozing creaminess in each bulb exudes an attractive confidence that makes dairy lovers anxious to go back for more. Any celebrating Leo should give their orb the main-character attention it deserves with an equally stunning romantic recipe this V-Day. 


Virgo (August 22–September 22): Flavored chèvre

Virgos are known for their passionate and hard-working energy, which is why they would love flexing their creative muscles and adding their own special touch to a homemade flavored chèvre. (Plus: they’ll satisfy their stubborn side by getting the log just how they like it).


Libra (September 22–October 23): Professor’s Brie

This award-winning cheese offers the ultimate mixture of cow and sheep’s milk flavors to suit Libra’s balanced (and—let’s face it—indecisive) nature. Plus: its square shape allows for equal and diplomatic cutting for Libras’ date-night cheeseboards. 


Scorpio (October 23–November 22): Roquefort

When it comes to intense blues like Roquefort, most people are either all in or all out. Like Scorpios, Roquefort gets a bad rap for being too intense, but anyone who can appreciate a strong flavor enjoys the unique experience it brings to the table. Match the strong Scorpio energy with some funky recipes this V-Day, like Roquefort-filled baked pasta or cheesy ice cream.


Sagittarius (November 22–December 21): Cheddar 

There are two things you can rely on at any party: a Sagittarius being a social butterfly, and cheddar cheese being passed around (either in cubed-form on a board or melted into a creamy dish). It’s not hard to see why these two are a match made in heaven. Even if they’re celebrating from home, Sagittarians can bring party vibes to their table-for-one with some gooey cheddar mac and cheese and a group Zoom call.


Capricorn (December 21–January 20): Feta

Feta is the tried-and-true low-fat cheese to keep on hand for various at-home recipes—a perfect match for the responsible and grounded Capricorn. The best way to celebrate Capricorn’s practical (and romantic!) side is with a healthy, feta-filled dinner for them and their loved ones (think: salad, shakshuka, veggie frittata).


Aquarius (January 19–February 18): Camel’s Milk Marinated Persian Feta

Aquarians pride themselves on being different and sticking up for what’s right—which is why marinated feta made from camel’s milk (yes, really!) is their dream snack. The folks at Summer Land take pride in providing the best lives possible for their camels, which are raised on chemical-free pastures, nourished by fertile volcanic soil and eight natural springs. So this rich and decadent cheese isn’t just the perfect addition to Aquarians’ Valentine’s Day doomscrolling, it satisfies their unique and ethical standards.


Pisces (February 18–March 20): Gjetost

Pisces would definitely swipe right on Gjetost—it’s sweet like caramel, a crowd-pleaser, and has a creative background. (During the production process of this Norwegian cheese, whey is heated until the lactose is caramelized, giving it that one-of-a-kind look and flavor.) This imaginative and pleasure-seeking sign would marvel at the sweet and unique nature of Gjetost, insisting it’s love at first sight. Who needs boxed chocolate, anyway?
