Let the stars (and your stomach) pick the perfect pie recipe for your next baking day. From classic apple pie to creamy and savoury chicken pot pie to delightfully bright lemon meringue, find out what pie is right for you based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Cherry Pie
No pie is a better fit for the fiery and adventurous Aries than a bright and punchy cherry pie. Full of colour and bursting with seasonal flavour, this classic summer pie is bound to make a splash at any celebration – just like their Arian counterpart. Serve with scoops of ice cream rolled in colourful sprinkles for the perfect pairing.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Banoffee Pie
The hardworking and dependable Taurus are well-suited to take on the task of whipping up a gorgeous banoffee pie. The multiple layers of digestive cookies and banana-toffee filling aren’t especially difficult, but they’ll take the patience of this grounded earth sign, especially when it comes to decorating the final whipped cream topping into a perfect cloud of sweet goodness.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Coconut Cream Pie
The playful twin of the zodiac, Gemini are a perfect match for duality of Molly Yeh’s coconut cream pie. Made with crunchy chocolate cookies and coconut and then topped with a dollop of creamy coconut filling and finished with coconut flakes and chocolate sprinkles, this pie juggles as many delicious flavours as Gemini themselves.

Cancers will love spoiling their loved ones (and themselves!) with this dessert.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Lemon Meringue Pie
Lemon meringue pie: sweet, bright and showy. It takes confidence to whip up meringue whites to those heights and Leos certainly have that. Their bright and enthusiastic nature is a perfect pairing with the cheerful and citrusy lemon meringue pie.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Modest and hard-working, Virgos will love the task of making this fruit and vegetable pie (yes, you read that right: rhubarb is actually a vegetable!). Virgos are organized and ambitious, so the decorative crust of this fun Canada Day-themed recipe is just the task for them. The shape can be swapped out to suit different occasions, so this pie can be enjoyed all year long.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Pumpkin Pie
What pie is more universally loved than the fall favourite dessert, pumpkin pie? Libras will enjoy making this crowd-pleasing pie (particularly around the holidays) when gathering together with loved ones since they’re a charming and social sign.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): French Silk Pie
Scorpios know what they like and aren’t afraid to go all-in on something. In this case, that thing is chocolate. These little chocoholic delights combine a chocolate sandwich cookie crust and a whipped chocolate mousse filling for double the decadence.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Classic Apple Pie
What can bring together a family better than a warm and classic apple pie? Probably the Sag serving it. Easily adaptable, this pie can be made in a variety of ways, but sometimes classic is the way to go. The warming spices are reminiscent of the warm and loving personality of the Sagittarius themselves.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Chicken Pot Pie
Practical and disciplined Capricorns don’t have time for fussy latticework. That’s why they’ll love making this pie that they can gobble up for dinner after (plus – it makes for great leftovers). All the comforting goodness of chicken soup comes together in this savoury dinner recipe.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Key Lime Pie
Aquarians are bold and like to take their own path. Enter this zesty recipe for mini key lime pies. A graham cracker crust pairs well with a lime curd filling. These pies are simple to whip up, and those that love them will certainly appreciate the bold flavour.
