If you want to wow your guests at your next dinner party, you might want to pay special attention to the appetizers you serve.

So, we talked to the resident astrologer at Best Life to find out which appetizers you should serve your friends (and yourself) based on your zodiac sign.

Do you like spicy shrimp cocktails or colorful appetizers? Read on to find out which dish can make your next party more fun and tasty.

Aries: Thai-Style Shrimp Cocktail

Aries is the most sure-of-itself sign in the zodiac. You should never stop putting yourself out there because of what other people think.

So it’s not surprising that when you have people over, you like to go a little overboard. Try this recipe for a spicy shrimp cocktail made in the Thai style at your next party.

Start by making a spicy nam jim seafood sauce and a fresh garlic aioli to dip the shrimp in.

Then put the shrimp in small shot glasses and top them with fresh lime wedges and cilantro to make them less spicy.

This easy dish shows that you don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to make something that tastes great.

Mini Cheese Ball Bites are for Taurus

Taurus is the sign of the zodiac that is friendly and down-to-earth, which is a great description of how you host.

People know that you like to keep things casual, but you never let that get in the way of your cooking skills.

The best recipe for an appetizer should be rich and filling, so these mini cheese ball bites are perfect for your next party.

Start by mixing your favorite soft cheese and herbs, then roll in nuts, herbs, or dried fruit, and chill in the fridge before serving.

And if you want to make your cheese ball bites even more festive, arrange them in the shape of a holiday wreath or Christmas tree!

Gemini: Avocado Deviled Eggs

Geminis are known for being playful and interested, as well as for thinking outside the box and trying new things.

Since you are the center of your group of friends, most of the time everyone gets together at your house. You love to host, but you’d rather be social than stand over a hot stove.

That’s why these bite-sized, easy-to-make avocado deviled eggs are perfect.

These tasty finger foods can be made and chilled hours before guests arrive.

They use avocado and lime juice instead of mayonnaise and mustard, and they can be topped with chopped cilantro or, if you prefer, crispy bacon bits. All you have to do when the party starts is take the platter out of the fridge.

Cancer: Fried Mac and Cheese Bites

Cancers are great party hosts and friends. You might be the zodiac’s homebody, but that doesn’t mean you don’t like having people over.

No matter what’s going on, you’re always willing to go out of your way to make your loved ones feel good and make sure they have a good time.

And who wouldn’t enjoy a treat like these fried mac and cheese bites that bring back memories?

Start by mixing together your favorite mac and cheese. Spread it out on a baking sheet and put it in the fridge to cool.

Then, form the dough into balls, roll them in panko, and bake them until they are golden brown. How to? Put these in your air fryer before you serve them to give them a bit more crunch.

Leo: Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Since you’re the fun-loving socialite of your group of friends, you don’t really need a reason to get everyone together. So, why not throw a last-minute Taco Tuesday party to spice things up?

Make a pitcher of margaritas and pass around these jalapeo poppers wrapped in bacon as an appetizer.

This starter only needs four things to make a big impression. Mix cream cheese and shredded cheddar together, then pipe into jalapeos that have been cut in half.

Then wrap each pepper in a thick slice of bacon, put them in the oven, and get ready for a sizzling good time!

Virgo: Strawberry Bruschetta With Honey Goat Cheese

You are a great host because you are a Virgo and pay attention to the little things.

If you want to impress your friends with something fresh, tasty, and a little bit complicated, this strawberry-goat cheese bruschetta is a refined enough appetizer to meet your needs.

First, toast your crostini in the oven. Then, whip the goat cheese, cream cheese, and honey together. Finish by spreading your sweet and savory mixture over the toasted bread and topping it with sliced strawberries, fresh basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze that has been reduced.

Nobody will be surprised by how good each bruschetta looks.

Libra: Antipasto Skewers

People in your social circle look to you to know what’s cool and what’s not. You like showing off your sense of style, but you also want to have fun at the party and see everyone.

These antipasto skewers are both sophisticated and easy to put together.

Cook a pound of cheese tortellini the day before. Then, before your guests arrive, just put them on the skewers with olives, mozzarella balls, tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, and cured meats of your choice.

Add a drizzle of Italian dressing at the end, and your guests will feel like they’re on a cruise through the Mediterranean.

Scorpio: Chimichurri Meatballs

Scorpios are known for being complicated people with strong feelings. But your water sign energy means you have an emotional and sentimental side that loves to make fun places where your friends and family can relax.

So, these hearty, herb-flavored chimichurri meatballs can’t go wrong. These snakes that you can dip are strong and spicy, but they also feel like a warm hug.

You can make the meatballs and chimichurri sauce before your guests arrive and then just heat them up in the oven before they arrive.

For even less stress, the recipe calls for frozen beef meatballs from the store. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone!

Sagittarius: Blueberry Mascarpone Phyllo Cups

You are the kind of person who always brings the party with them. People from all walks of life are drawn to you because you are open and carefree.

So, the appetizer you’ll enjoy most will have that same feeling of warmth and nostalgia, but it will also have a bright and fresh kick.

These heavenly blueberry mascarpone phyllo cups will make you and your guests feel like you’re in another world. Start by putting frozen tart shells in the oven to crisp up while you mix the filling.

Then, put some mint leaves and your homemade blueberry sauce on top to make the perfect appetizer for a party.

Capricorn: Roasted Figs With Goat Cheese and Walnuts

Since you’re a Capricorn, you’re very focused and organized, so you take hosting very seriously. You’ll spend weeks going over the details of your next party and making sure that everything goes off without a hitch.

But sometimes the simplest ingredients make the biggest impact, and your guests won’t be able to get enough of these roasted figs filled with goat cheese and walnuts.

Start by cutting the top of the fruit into quarters while leaving the bottom whole. Then, fill the quarters with goat cheese and freshly chopped walnuts.

Once it’s done, drizzle it with honey and serve with your favorite wine. This elegant dish is both sweet and savory. It doesn’t take long to make and leaves nothing to be desired.

Aquarius: Watermelon Feta Skewers

You’re just as talkative as fellow air signs Gemini and Libra, so you love going out and meeting new people. You just like to do it in a more strategic way, which is why you’re drawn to small gatherings.

You think that simple is better because it lets you enjoy things more. Even though these skewers of watermelon, feta, and mint look simple, they taste as unique and refreshing as you do.

All you have to do is mix the watermelon cubes with chopped mint and put them and cubed feta on skewers. Just drizzle with a good extra-virgin olive oil, and you’re done!

Pisces: Colorful Canapés

When they can, Pisces love to show off their artistic skills. Since making new friends is one of your many skills, it makes sense that you would want to entertain and impress these new people.

Even though you don’t usually care about the little things, you’ll make an exception for these fun, colorful canapés.

Start by spreading out your crackers and topping them with your favorite soft cheese, like ricotta, neufchatel, mascarpone, or brie.

From there, you can add any toppings you like. Try mixing and matching flavors like cucumber mint or smoked salmon and radishes to make lots of different bites for your guests to enjoy.
