Aries (March 21 – April 19)

01-aries

Proud Aries, our first fire sign, likes it served up hot with bold ingredients such as chilies, barbecue sauce, or garlic, washed down with a peppery, aromatic Syrah. Since Aries have a tendency to lose interest quickly, a multi-course meal is likely to hold more appeal than a single entrée. Or, try an interactive dish, like fondue. Who could get bored of fondue, especially chocolate?!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

02-taurus

One might not immediately associate sensuality or luxury with The Bull. However, those born under the Taurus sign associate great emotional pleasure with good food. Try rich and savory bites like juicy cuts of beef, or a decadent chocolate dessert accompanied with a full-bodied Cabernet.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

03-gemini

Gemini is known as the conversationalist of the group — perfect for a dinner party! In general, Gemini aren’t picky eaters, but they do have a penchant for novelty, making international foods particularly appealing to The Twins. They might also enjoy a nice lively Pinot Grigio.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

04-cancer

Comfort food come hither! Ruling over the home and tradition, this sign is known for creating a sense of comfort and belonging. They enjoy intimate, cozy surroundings. Claim a spot on the couch with a French Onion Soup and a luscious Grenache; you won’t be sorry.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

05-leo

Leos are lovers of lavish abundance, sumptuous meals, and the spotlight. Their table should offer strong, rich flavors, such as curries and caviar, and their cups should be filled with a classic, well-aged Bordeaux. When the wine runs out, have them sing some karaoke or take a twirl around the dining room; you won’t hear any objections from any Leos in the room!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

06-virgo

The earth sign Virgo is a purist and naturalist who is most likely to be found in the granola section of Whole Foods. They are well versed in the origins of food and expect a certain quality of the bites they choose to eat. A fresh green salad paired with a crisp Rielsing is a good match for this sign.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

07-libra

Libra is the sweet tooth of the celestial bunch, with a tasting style that is slow, thoughtful, and exploratory. They seek harmony and balance, and welcome any chance to relate to others. Their favorite pairing might include a complex stew with a vintage white Burgundy, finished with a tropical fruit dessert.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

08-scorpio

Scorpios have an intense love affair with food. Their intensity is rivaled by that of the Taurus but the taste buds of a Scorpio are much more complex and adept at tasting richness. Their shopping list might include green onion, Roquefort cheese, chives, cloves, parsley, coriander, and a spicy red wine, such as a Malbec.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

09-sagittarius

Sagittarians are world travelers who enjoy fragrant, exotic foods. They enjoy the unfamiliar and are excited by the notion of trying something international. Moroccan tagines or Indian stews would be a good place to start. Pair the meal with a full-bodied red wine such as Cotes-du-Rhone.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

10-capricorn

A traditional eater, the Capricorn is observant and perhaps status-conscious in their habits. They sit farther out on the wine and liquor end of the spectrum, meaning they enjoy reputable tannic wines such as Napa Valley Cabernets.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

11-aquarius

An Aquarian would be great addition to your dinner party, as they feel right at home in social settings. While their tasting style is inquisitive, they are not exactly adventurous. They do however enjoy bracing foods such as sour cherry or meals that have a ‘build your own’ aspect to them. Consider a glass of dry white Albarino from Spain.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

12-pisces

A love of all things seafood defines the Pisces palate. This is one of the most creative signs of the zodiac and will probably appreciate a good plate presentation. They prefer milder flavors but do enjoy a spicy, not-too-tannic Mediterranean wine, such as a Monastrell.

The Cutest Animated Zodiac Signs

Uncle Richie, Uncle Bernie and Uncle Sammy … Lessons about money from 3 speculators

richie-bernie-and-sammy

Speculation with fake money works … until it doesn’t … When it is only backed by belief, money is just ink on paper. By listening to Uncle Richie (the local), Uncle Bernie (the national) and Uncle Sammy (the world), we may question our money system and draw practical lessons for our daily lives.

Uncle Richie a/k/a Mr Monopoly a/k/a The Banker.
Uncle Richie prints fake money but he looks like a good guy because (1) he gives everyone the same capital to start the real estate speculation game, (2) that capital is a gift and not a loan, and (3) he has no expectations at the end of the game whether from millionaires or bankrupts. Non of this would actually happen in real life.
The Monopoly money devilish side. Good Uncle Richie has also an evil side as he encourages all players (1) to try to become the single entity to control the real estate market and (2) to rejoice in driving the other players into bankruptcy. Hurting family and friends feelings is not worth material gains, even in a game.
Uncle Richie lesson. Monopoly money is fake but family and friends are real. What if all world money was fake? Money can’t buy love. One day, the ink on money may evaporate and we should be prepared to stick together when that happens. Lesson #1: Loved ones are more important than money. Family unity is priceless. Cultivate your friendships old and new. They are irreplaceable. Be there for them.

Uncle Bernie a/k/a Mr Ponzi Scheme a/k/a The Stock Broker. Before the Monopoly game starts, Uncle Richie is the ultimate monopolist as he owns all the money and all the properties. Nobody knows how he got in that position and nobody is asking him to prove it. Unlike Uncle Richie, Uncle Bernie was facing the major challenge to make believe that his fake debts were backed by real assets. Uncle Bernie started as a respected stockbroker who even became Nasdaq Chairman. Later he gained the reputation of a magician as he would produce superior financial results regardless of the market volatility. In order to live up to his reputation, new money would be used to pay ongoing unusual returns rather than buying backing assets. At a certain point, Uncle Bernie had reached a thriving business with no assets at all. Master in manipulation, he would only accept new clients when sponsored by existing ones. This talented staging would last for decades until the tragic day when there was not enough new money to keep the snowball rolling.
Uncle Bernie lesson. In the Monopoly game there is a card to get out of jail, but not in real life for Uncle Bernie. Clients, friends and charitable organizations lost a lot of money and family tragedies followed Uncle Bernie downfall. Instead of creating misery to everyone, Uncle Bernie could have used his natural talents for good, such as becoming another David Copperfield. What if all the world debt was fake? Money can’t buy you talents. One day, the ink on money may evaporate and your talents may save your life when that happens.  Lesson #2: Talents are more important than money. Cultivate your own gifts, what you do better than others. Not only you will enjoy it, but who knows it may help you one day reinventing yourself if needed.

Uncle Sammy a/k/a Mr. USA a/k/a The Federal Banker. Backed by commodities, uncle Sammy has printed paper dollars forever. In 1944, the dollar would become the world reserve and Uncle Sammy would guarantee its convertibility in gold. In 1971 he decided unilaterally to terminate the gold convertibility (the Nixon shock) and the dollar continued to be printed at infinitum ever since without any backing other than their beholders beliefs.
Uncle Sammy lesson. Like for Uncle Bernie, Uncle Sammy has passed the critical mass where there is no more possible pause and control. Here is what Voltaire had to say in 1729: “Paper money, based on the sole trust in its printing government, eventually returns to its intrinsic value, which is zero.” Instead of wasting his monetary power in unnecessary wars and useless goods, Uncle Sammy could have used his experience more wisely. What if all the world debt was fake? Money can’t buy you experience. One day, the ink on money may evaporate and your experience may save your life when that happens. Lesson #3: Experience is more important than money. Never stop learning from your life events, especially when things don’t go your way. We learn nothing from our successes, only from overcoming hardship. Good judgement comes from experience, which comes from bad judgement!!

The 3 Uncles lessons. Loved ones, talent and experience are more important than money, but would be worthless without health. What good is it to waste an entire life making money only to pay the doctor at the end? Here is the final ranking of values: (1) Health, (2) Loved Ones, (3) Experience, (4) Talent and (5) Money. For most people money is number one, a priority worth revisiting.
