It’s #NationalPieDay, and did you know that your love for this flaky buttery pastry could be written in the stars? In the spirit of this day honoring our favorite baked delectable, here’s your February pie horoscope. Will the month ahead bring a much-needed change of flavor? Will it be a month of feasting or will you be served up humble pie instead? The stars hold the answer, and Pop Pie Co. will be there for you to dish up the comfort food or victory meal.
Aries (March 20-April 19) — This month is all about experimenting. It’s the perfect month to try a new pie every time you have one. If you’ve been the classic chicken pot pie all your life, this is the time to let your identity take a vacation and let yourself, and your taste buds, have an adventure. This month is also about testing your own self-imposed limits on who you are. Don’t worry, we at Pop Pie Co. can assure you that we are testing our own limits all the time, and we experiment in the kitchen all the time. Reinvention is our constant. Have fun with it!
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — You’re a hard worker and can go a really long time without once questioning your fulfillment. It’s time to look up and start dreaming big about the pie in the sky. You need to bring your goals into alignment with your work ethic. Get up on that buttery flying saucer and look down on your trajectory to see the big picture. Go after your passions. Maybe you really are a guava hand pie kind of person and you’ve been trying to pass yourself off as an apple crumble. Both are delicious flavors, but maybe only one of them is really you.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — You’ve never cared much about fitting in, but you’re still a leader in the community. Stay bold and brave. Be the Chinese Five Spice pie in a world of apple pies. But don’t totally lose sight of the fact that apples are delicious and nutritious and it’s ok to coexist peacefully with your fruit-filled neighbors. Don’t conform, but don’t reject. Find that middle ground where you and those around you all feel equally valued. The middle ground is what a pie is all about. It’s the filling that makes the pie really special, after all.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The past few months in particular were all about getting your financial ducks in a row. You’ve done a great job gathering and organizing those ducks. This month is the month where you can start to cash in on a few rewards you were denying yourself while being diligent last year. We think a mini splurge at Pop Pie Co. for you and some friends would be a great celebration – YOUR treat. Guard your fortune, but also use it as a reminder to yourself of what you’ve been working so hard for.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — You’ve risen above judgment and know you also have to rise above judging yourself. You’re a unique pastry, you’re a menu standout. Remember that most pies look the same on the outside, golden and rich all-butter crust. But on the inside is where their specialness is hidden. No matter what, be confident and gentle with yourself, knowing what you’ve got within is tasty.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You’re an independent person but somehow you’ve managed to keep that lowkey. But this month, you will be more interested than ever in finding a sense of wholeness in yourself. Here’s our tip, our menu philosophy. Our menu is all about a balance of many things: protein, vegetables, sweet, savory, tart, and vegan. Your health plan should be about balance as well. When you’ve figured out how to practice self care, what being whole means to you will evolve dramatically.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — You help people and it’s awesome, but there’s always a threshold where your role ends and it’s up to them to do the real work. Don’t take it all on yourself, don’t pursue being the solo hero. Start to think about all of your relationships as a team effort, for you, for the other person, and even within your community. Here at Pop Pie Co., we all pitch in to help one another as much as we can, but we also let our staff members shine in their job with their true talent. While we’re all willing to jump into another area as needed, we also know that we all have our individual part to play in making our company thrive!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — It’s a time to look close and notice the finer details. Analyze things with appreciation, and you’ll have a better perspective overall. Slice that Steak and Ale pie open and really observe all the craftsmanship that went into each and every part. The perfectly cooked vegetables, the tender protein, the aroma of the sauce, and the way it all comes together as a flavor experience. In your close observations, you’ll appreciate something in a whole new way.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Adventure is the name of the game, but the stars are very clear that you must also keep up your good habits and discipline. It’s the time for an adventure of growth and discovery, while relying on the strengths you have worked so hard to develop. We understand this at Pop Pie Co. because we go on culinary adventures every day but keep our discipline too. We never ever diverge from strict standards of quality and consistency. It doesn’t curtail our fun, it makes it more fun! We want to produce something amazing that’s really really good. And we know you do too with your own goals.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Sometimes the best goal in a period of uncertainty is presenting yourself impeccably. Keep it simple. You could be filled with complex flavors, but on the outside, show the world that you can also have a golden flaky all-butter crust as tempting as anyone else’s. It’s not about hiding yourself. It’s about showing up. And trust us, when they see how awesome the crust looks, they’re gonna want to dive deep into the flavors within. Be yourself, but let yourself shine.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’re one of the most open minded signs, that’s because you wisely know that truth is not only about intelligence, it’s also about instinct and connecting the dots well. Our Chef Gan and his team of cooks follow their instincts all the time. They’ll know to add one more onion if the ratio seems off. Be scrupulous in your scrutiny because this month is all about you uncovering the truth. Rip the crust off the top of that mystery and reveal its contents to yourself.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — You’re a carefree and artistic sign and you thrive when you’re flying free. Good news, this is definitely a time when your expressive pursuits will dovetail with money, money, money! But call it a really strong karmic force, but as the old adage “mo money mo problems” posits: with your increasing wealth there is increasing responsibility. Be conscious of the way you use your resources! Spread that money around and support local small, independent businesses like Pop Pie Co. where you’re doing more than fueling a company, you’re investing in your community while feeding your soul (and belly).
The stars, and the pies, have spoken.
