The Jewish Zodiac

The Apple dipped in Honey. If you were born in Tishrei, people may think you're a dip, but they know that you're the sweetest thing since sliced challah (with honey).

The Cranberry. If you were born in Heshvan, you have a biting sense of humor, and a sharp wit. You do, however, need to be boiled with a lot of sugar to be palatable.

The Jelly Donut. If you were born in Kislev, you are full of light, and even your exterior looks delectable. You may have oily skin though.

The Latke. If you were born in Tevet, you know that good things cannot be put away immediately. You have the desire for better things. You are desired by all and considered quite the hottie.

The Almond. If you were born in Shvat, you should remember that others may find you addictive and even mesmerizing, but it's better if they take you in small doses.

Adar I
The Hamantaschen. If you were born in Adar, you are very much influenced by your parents. If they are skilled, you will be crisp and sweet on the outside, filled with an even sweeter softness inside. If not, you may find yourself addicted to heroin because of all the poppy seeds.

Adar II
Blintzes. Sweet and cinnamony. You change with the season. Cool but warm. Very charming.

The Matzah. If you were born in Nissan, you may be thought of as boring and hard, but one need only look as far as the chicken soup to see the wide variety of possibilities you have in life.

The Steak. If you were born in Iyar, you are an independent person (or nation), and you have all the strength and juices one needs to survive in this world.

The Cheesecake. If you were born in Sivan, you are sweet and caring. You are soft and vulnerable and a bit crumbly at times.

The Icepop. If you were born in Tammuz, you were born to cool off. But if you don't stay cool, you may find yourself a very messy puddle on the floor.

The Fish. If you were born in Av, you were born to eat fish and think about steak. You feel the need to work harder to show that you are valued as yourself and not just because there is no other option.

The Krembo. If you were born in Elul, the summer months are very hard on you. You have a tendency towards a round figure, and you favor flavorless cookies. You do, however, have an excellent creamy interior.
