IT'S GEMINI SEASON, BABY!

Ruled by Mercury, the Top of the Cosmic Class, Geminis are: curious, intelligent, observant and articulate. As the zodiac’s mythological twins — Geminis are both valedictorians and class clowns. So Gemini season (May 22nd - June 21st) gives us all permission to be multidimensional. For the mental stamina required to contain two people in one, we sought out recipes specific to each zodiac’s horoscope. Whether sweet, salty, spicy or savory, all of these dishes prominently feature nutrients to feed your brain this month.
