How You Act When You're Hungry, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Have you ever stopped to think about the way hunger affects your moods?

Whether you realize it or not, everyone reacts to an empty stomach in a slightly different way. Keep reading to find out how you might act when you're hungry, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is undoubtedly the hangriest of the zodiac signs. You're normally intense and passionate, but you can get especially fiery when you haven't eaten. You're prone to outbursts, but typically are able to keep them in check. That's not so true when you're feeling hungry. It may be wise to carry snacks around so you don't wind up doing something you'll regret.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is a very particular sign, so when you feel hungry, chances are you're craving something really specific. You have refined tastes, and when you're in need, not any old foodstuff will do. You can be a little picky about what you put in your body, and while you don't always indulge in the food that's the best for you, you always stick to your standards.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini is a social butterfly and a sharer, and that applies to the way you consume food as well. Even when you're feeling totally hungry, you'll usually hide it until someone else buys something or reveals that they brought along a snack, and at that point, you're more than happy to dig in. Of course, you're more than happy to lend a fry or two to a friend when the tables are turned.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is known for their powerful emotions, and being hungry also make you even more vulnerable to shifts in your mood. You're sensitive, so be aware when things are getting to you more than usual. If just seeing a picture of a cute dog makes you weepy or a grammar mistake sends you into a rage, maybe you need to eat something to get back to normal.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Of all of the signs, Leo is most likely to feel hungry, not because they actually need to eat, but because they're feeling bored. You have a big, bold personality and prefer to keep busy, and sometimes when you don't feel like you have anything to do, you resort to snacking. If your stomach isn't actually rumbling, it may be wise to think twice before you pass the time with food.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)

Virgo may be known for being all work and no play, but when they're hungry, they know how to put down what they're doing and take a break. You tend to be a perfectionist, and you know how to take care of your mind and your body. You know that missing a meal to focus on academics or work will only hurt you in the long run, so you're not above stopping to refuel. In fact, you're willing to pause most things for glorious food.


Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)

Libra is a social creature, so even when you're hungry, you never want to eat alone. When your tummy starts rumbling, you often find yourself mentioning delicious foods to others in order to get them salivating over their next meal. Most of the time, you're not assertive enough to simply say you're hungry and you want to stop somewhere to eat. You're much happier if you can make someone else think it was their idea.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Scorpio typically keeps their true feelings under lock and key. The single exception to the rule is that you're more than happy to complain when something is bothering you. When you haven't eaten, you're in just the mood to unload your grievances on everyone around you. A healthy meal might stop your moody streak before it starts.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Sagittarius is a go-getting sign that's always looking for adventure, but when you're hungry, all your inhibitions go out the window and you're way more likely to take risks. You're normally more than eager to try new things and take chances, but your judgment gets particularly impaired a bit if you're not thinking on a full stomach—especially if food is on the line.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Capricorn is a hard worker and thinker, and hunger typically isn't that much of a problem for you because you're always planning ahead. You typically eat relatively healthy foods at regular intervals because you know you need the energy to do your best work, and since you're often the mom of your friend group, you usually come prepared with plenty of snacks. Even when you don't have food around, you can quickly come up with a solution to get some.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Aquarius may be known for their free-thinking and independent ways, but when the sign gets hungry, sleepiness is sure to follow. You're usually off pursuing your own path, but when you don't have any energy because you're hungry, that's hard to do. Hunger can also make you act more aloof and stubborn than ever, so watch out.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

As much as imaginative Pisces might dream of eating their favorite meal ever, when they feel super hungry, they're often too lazy to do anything about it. Of all the signs, you're the least driven to action, and since hunger makes you even more prone to standing around, chances are that you're going to feel that way for a while before you're actually motivated to make yourself some food.
