Which Sun Sign Is Most Likely To Be Vegan?

Filed in Sun Signs

Which Sun Sign is most likely to be vegan? Or a vegetarian? There are no stats on this, but anecdotally, Outer Planet People are more likely to be either. Sans sifting through the birthdates of celebrity veggos & vegans, coming up with astrological vegetarian/vegan indicators is guesswork.

I’m vegetarian since age five and more recently, vegan. Cathartically, I had an early awakening to the despicable way we treat our fellow earthlings. It was a farm holiday and a calf I had befriended/helped wean, was slaughtered in front of his mother. Her anguish was dismissed as just “part of farm life” and mine was similarly irrelevant. I have not touched meat since but it took longer to make the dairy connection.

Anecdotally, I know a lot of Pisceans who are veggo. A strong Neptune (ruler of Pisces, compassion, empathy) can also predispose one. Some Scorps wear fur and relish red meat a la Anna Wintour. Then there are Scorps such as Joaquin Phoenix, who are strict vegans & do stunning docos like Earthlings about it.

You could also argue that it is Uranus/Uranian if the choice is less compassionate & more New-Agie logic re resources et al. I’m thinking Neptune in Pisces (2011!) will see a significant spike in the veggo ranks. I note that nearly all the females in my teenage son’s set are vegetarian. We need more data!

I am a Capricorn and have been a vegetarian since I was a toddler!

I’m a leo and a later in life vegetarian (of sorts!) I just won’t eat red meat but I feel ok with seafood. It took me so long to connect what was on my plate with what it had been.

Not one word about Oil. Seems to me totally understandable that it is ruled by Neptune as the word did not always mean ‘that which drives us to our doom’. Oil was magical and used in many rituals, prized above all other fragrances and essential to matters of life and death, hence Neptune and the veil of the unknown the mysterious and altered states of being. It is only in our time that the substance dredged up from subterranean lakes of liquid fossilised rotting matter poisonous and indigestible has become known as oil which in true Plutonian style is exacting… Read more »

Pegs would be a Fruitarian, if she could,and perhaps shell sea creatures, ie oysters cockles, pipis, clams, no ‘eyes’. Of course your food regime is climatic, the colder, the more meat coz less veggies. Whatever floats your boat, and makes sense. Whatever keeps you healthy & energetic. The white haired bringer of The New Age in the early 70’s, said ‘if you eat meat, be prepared to kill it yourself’, if you can ,then do. But if you cannot, don’t. Right! In a perfect world! Too much chicken is pumped with hormones is why men are getting man boobs &… Read more »

I was vege for three years by default, living with my brother at the time who made all that lived with him turn vege too! I didn’t bat an eyelid about this for that whole time, the easy transition felt normal, body was lighter and healthier. Moved back in with my parents a few years later and turned carnivore again but never with as much gusto. Having beeing through a deep healing phase last year and back into my meditation, I am naturally leaning towards being vego again. The idea of eating meat is slowly starting to ‘gross’ me out.… Read more »

Gem fish rising, uranus in scorpio 8th Although I still eat red meat every 2-3 months I would like to be vegetarian. I love lots of fruit, vegetables & good produce. I eat fish mostly. My dad was very big on nutrition, meat was never a big part of our family meals & neither was dairy, we only had soy. We never had a single item of junk food in the house & I had no idea that sugar was also white, we only ever had raw. Only oats for breakfast & after school I snacked on beans in the… Read more »

Thanks scorpalicious, I was very lucky to have that experience.

I was in good health & my dad encouraged me to play lots of sports such as tennis, hockey, athletics, rugby league (yes, with the boys & it hurt!), swimming, equestrian & I was even in the rodeos. Thank goodness I was eating well, I don’t think I could have managed all those sports without it. lol

My sister a veg. She does not eat anything with “eyes”. As a kid we called her “the bird”.

Aries Sun and Venus, 9th, opp Neptune with Uranus in T-sq. 12th.

There’s that Pisces energy Mystic with Uranus 12th, and the Neptune tie in.

I’m a scorp (with Cancer rising) and my daughter is a Taurus (virgo rising) and we are both vegetarians. The thought of eating an animal is just too cruel for words – but have you seen what meat does to your insides? Animals have all sorts of worms inside them, from eating other creatures and eating off the ground etc etc. If you eat meat you are also eating these worms and they accumulate inside you – its GROSS! You need to do heaps of juice fasts with herbs and bentonite clay to get them and the muciod plaque out… Read more »

*sigh* Joaquin Phoenix… the only Scorp man i find really sexy. I actually love meat and offal. Don’t like cooking red meat at home because: a) i can’t cook, don’t enjoy cooking and hate having to clean up after cooking meat b) hate the smell of raw red meat but quite happy to eat it when i visit my folks every few weeks or so. I could very easily become vegetarian but i’m all about nutrition and couldn’t be bothered fussing over food, mixing pulses and grains to get my daily protein quota. Meat is just easier. It never ceases… Read more »

I am 29 and have been a vegetarian for 17 years. I first wanted to become one when I was 3 years old after seeing a chicken get its head chopped off, but my mum didn’t know how to work the veggie thing for a 3 year old.

I have a Sun/Neptune conjunction in Sag in the 7th, a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Virgo in the 4th, and a Mercury (Sag)/Uranus (Scorp) conjunction in 6th house.

If I didn’t love dairy I would like to be vegan, as that is best for our animal friends, but I am not there yet!

Geminis! Only successful long-term vegan I’ve ever known is a Gemini. I’m a vegetarian Uranian Gem, in fact i wish I could be vegan but the world ain’t supportive enough of it yet, too restrictive. Also Aries because they are so damn determined, aries ex lasted a year as a vegan and now wants to eat meat but finds that he can’t!

Agree with above comment that it is cultural often, and that eating meat is sometimes necessary. Ex was from west Africa – never enough protein available to most people on a daily basis over there, no-one starves but no-one exactly thrives either. All the west africans I know in Australia love meat and eat it daily, almost to make up for what they missed. Is also a symbol of status, obviously, in these countries. Where I live now, up until 30 years ago, staple diet would have been camel meat, camel milk, dates, and the occasional vegetable and rice that… Read more »

Love the idea of being veggo but love steak, chicken casserole, roasts, ham, bacon, baked fish much MUCH more. I would probably gas myself and everyone around me to death if I only ate fruit, vegetables and grain based stuff.

This! I love animals but I love the taste of meat much more. I hate the idea of factory farming. I buy organic and free-range when possible, and luckily that is almost always.

thinking about this, I found that all non-meat-eaters I know have very strong Uranian influences, be it through personal aqua-planets or strongly placed Uranus. to me the most interesting one is my gay Aquarian flatmate. He has Sun and Venus conjunct in early Aqua in the 8th + Pisces MC and decided to be vegetarian at the tender age of 6 (note: he is Croatian and on the Balkans the idea of not eating meat is basically considered a mental illness, whenever i meet his virgo mother she talks about how otherworldly she considers his sexual orientation and food preferences,… Read more »

I’ve been veggo for about three years now – and was on and off years ago, but it was too difficult when I was with my ex, also Libran, husband who didn’t consider a meal a meal unless there was half a dead cow on the plate. When I first went veggo three years ago it was strictly Brahmin or Sattvic – no meat, eggs, garlic, onions or mushrooms. That’s all well and good when eating at home, but really difficult when eating out, even in veggo restaurants, as just about everything is heavy on the garlic. The only place… Read more »

I’m more of an Anna Wintour sorta scorp…. Love my steak, all game foods, even haggis (its the genes – I’m just programmed for it). However I have also been exposed to the farming side of it all, so fully respect the animal that feeds me, and am a proponent of using ALL the parts of the animal – waste not/want not so to speak. I am also pretty dogmatic about sustainable farming, and organic meat production. If that means meat is more expensive, so be it, I’ll eat less, and enjoy it more. The vego’s in my life are… Read more »

The only card-carrying vegans I know personally are both Capricorns. Have three Piscean gfs and all are high protein/low carb. The long-legged piscean thinks the perfect meal is a pub steak with garlic buttered beans. Two of them take total pride in never cooking unless absolutely necessary. Had an Irish piscean bloke who ate meat three times a day and shuddered at the thought of salad and said quiche is mainly eggs and the only way to eat eggs was with bacon. Grandfather, brother, 2 uncles and ex-motm all aqua and all proud carnivores. Oh forgot, psych sagg’s daughter is… Read more »

Neptune is most elevated planet and most aspected and with Jupiter ruling my asc, merc and moon, the combination makes for a strong piscean vibe. Whenever I play with the idea of vegetarianism, I smell a roast and my wheels skid.

I’ll ask my daughter if any of her friends are veggo – they’re in the same age category as your son Mystic. They also have that Neptune-Uranus conjunction in Cap, yes? I have crapp’d on about this before but I was raised vegetarian by my triple aries mother, who is also tres Plutonic (mars conj pluto in leo in the first house). The pic you’ve used reminds me of why she refuse meat as a small child – yes it was a pet lamb (her grandmother was a sheep farmer and practically raised her as my scorpy grandmother was apparently… Read more »

that’s an asian thing isn’t it (not racist generalisation but my gazillion chinese mates tell me this), it’s all about the other bits – tongues, intestine, whatever. not so much about flavour as texture. at least it’s not wasted… also a general comment (not just TA but i’m consolidating here), vegetarianism is all well and good, but if you live in greenland, siberia, etc, there isn’t much vegetable matter to be had in those harsh wintertimes – otherwise no meat, no eat! it’s my opinion that vego-ism only works in good climates. and think of the food miles having to… Read more »

Yes UP, the meat thing is indeed cultural for DLE and his male progenitors… there are some animal parts that have spiritual significance for them too, or something akin to spiritual significance. DLE’s father is fond of snake’s gall bladders for that reason. Come to think of it, if you eat meat, you just about NEED the gall of a snake hey? UP, anybody… have you heard of ‘eat right for your type’? As fad diets go this one is fairly sensible and talks about blood type and our genetic heritage – eg type O is the oldest blood type… Read more »

I have adhered to this diet since i was 20-ish….. As an O+ I get very cranky if I go too long without protein.
I find it interesting that most people who eat in tune with themselves naturally self select food according to this framework – so many A friends of mine will cheerfully wander straight past the meat counter, and get insanely excited about tinned lentil specials…

I was vego for a good few years when young, but not a well informed one, so didn’t do the protein thing properly. However, I got really sick for quite a while and was strongly advised by a few therapists to eat meat again in order to recover. I’m blood type O, so could be something in that. I’m still underpowered if I don’t eat meat and function much better on it. I’m also a yin type, so always chilly and cold. Yang types, folks who don’t feel the cold so much and tend to overheat make much better vegetarians… Read more »

All my Leo mate llloooovvveee their meat. I never liked the touch or smell of raw meat as a kid, & have been veggo for 20 years, now lean towards vegan because of animal welfare issues. I strikes me that some cities are much more veg friendly than others, too – I wonder if there’s astro at work there, too?

other discussions on vego-ism aside, I think there might be 2 oil categories: the subterranean fossil fuel (martian = fuel & war or plutonian = subterranean & power struggles). the other oil is the sweet almond oil, olive oil, vegetable oil, the stuff that keeps us healthy and that we use to make (nice) soap. Maybe that’s the neptunian part. or venusian?? but in general, oil is slippery, has many sources and uses ie. hard to categorise, maybe that’s why it’s Neptunian PS I would love to be an astro-intern!! although not so sure about my astro knowledge.
