Whether you’re leaf-peeping, apple picking, nibbling your favorite fall cookie, or stocking up on Halloween candy, autumn is the ideal season to celebrate the bounty of harvest crops in a drink that was crafted just for your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21–April 19): Hot Chai Tea

What do you serve rambunctious rams to quench their insatiable thirst for adventure? Aries is one of the spiciest signs of the zodiac (which is probably why their zodiac sign color is red hot) and will appreciate a mug of something spicy. “Aries demands something spicy and intense, brimming with all sorts of flavors,” says professional psychic and astrologer Stina Garbis. She points to chai—a tea brimming with intense aromas of clove, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and peppercorns—as the perfect drink for rams like her.

Taurus (April 20–May 20): Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows

What libation pairs perfectly with those born under the second sign of the zodiac? Garbis says Taureans are smooth and comforting and would adore a nice cup of hot cocoa with a few marshmallows swimming on top. “Bulls will dive deep into a luxurious cup of milk chocolate cocoa and be on the lookout for marshmallows,” she says.

Gemini (May 21–June 20): Asian Pear and Ginger Sparkler

It makes perfect sense that Garbis would select an Asian Pear and Ginger Sparkler to serve to the airy, intelligent zodiac sign. “Bright and brainy Geminis love a trendy beverage that is elevated and effervescent,” she notes, saying that the social butterflies will enjoy fall days frolicking with friends and expanding their minds.

Cancer (June 21–July 22): International Coffee Café Vienna

Wistful, thoughtful, and caring Cancers love nostalgia. They’re in luck (fall does contain this zodiac sign’s luckiest month, after all) because Garbis has the perfect beverage for seasonal sipping: Maxwell House International coffee. “Cancers adore curling up and remembering their childhood, when they drank a cup of Café Vienna and felt grown-up,” she notes. Don’t be surprised if the crab grabs a blanket to curl up with and protect its sensitive soul.

Leo (July 23–August 22): Caffè Mocha with Whipped Cream

What do you serve a lion on a chilly day? “Leos are the star,” says Garbis, who suggests celebrating their boldness and intensity with a whipped cream-topped caffè mocha. “Leos need to be served a full-bodied coffee drink with lots of foam and a pillar of whipped cream to satisfy their star egos.” It’s a sip that’s sure to garner attention, which is fitting considering the biggest fear for this zodiac sign is a lack of attention or approval.

Virgo (August 23–September 22): The perfect cup of Joe

Virgos are a bit fastidious and are happiest when life is neat and tidy. “I can’t think of anything a Virgo would like more than a perfect cup of coffee,” says Garbis. This star sign isn’t brewing just any old pot of coffee. Virgos will measure their coffee precisely and brew it in the perfect percolator at just the right temperature. Then they curl up with their steaming mug to read the best book for their zodiac sign.

Libra (September 23–October 22): Americano

Libras like everything to be fair and balanced. “Libra is ruled by Venus, who is the goddess of sensuality and beauty,” says Garbis. She points to a classic Americano, an espresso topped with water, as the perfect drink for this zodiac sign. At their core, Libras rejoice when things are even, so if you add the same amount of espresso and hot water, you’ll create a cup of nirvana. Next time you have a Libra over for lunch, serve up this after-meal drink to really please. You’ll earn heaps of gratitude—Libra is the most polite zodiac sign, after all.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21): Fall Sangria

Toss your favorite fall fruits in with a bottle of red wine, some apple cider, apple and pear brandies, and cinnamon simple syrup. Pop in the fridge for a few hours, and a Scorpio will follow you to the ends of the earth. Garbis says that a Scorpio’s complexity and intensity are attracted to the deep red wine and medley of fruits. Scorpios are among the most trustworthy zodiac signs, so you can trust them when they tell you this drink is delicious.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21): Sparkling Cider

A true Sagittarius would love nothing more than to clank Thanksgiving glasses filled with sparkling cider, according to Garbis. The last fire sign of the zodiac, archers are as effervescent and sparkly as the bubbles in the cider. The happy-go-lucky Sagittarius would love to share bubbly with friends and strangers alike, filling their cup of life with new ideas and adventures.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19): Mulled Apple Cider

You’ve got to love Capricorns, the smart and sensible souls. The zodiac sign’s career strength is ambition, so it’s no wonder their drink of choice bows at the altar of tradition. “Mulled apple cider is an appropriate drink for Capricorns, as it is the quintessential fall drink to celebrate the season,” Garbis says. “While it’s perfectly practical, it is not a simple drink. You have to warm it and fill it with fruits and spices.” She says Capricorns will love that the beverage honors both tradition and hard work, cornerstones of Capricorns.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18): Turmeric Ginger Latte

If you are or know an Aquarius, you are aware of the sign’s free-spirited and maverick nature. “People born under the sign of Aquarius are unique and exotic and will love drinking a turmeric ginger latte because it is organic and original and has a purpose,” says Garbis, referencing turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties. The final air sign of the zodiac will most likely sip a turmeric latte while getting lost in a corn maze.

Pisces (February 19–March 20): Pumpkin Spice Latte

At the end of the zodiac, you will discover the Pisces swimming between dreams and reality. Garbis says friendly fishes delight in comfort and compassion, which is why the zodiac sign’s ideal Thanksgiving dish is ambrosia. Similarly indulgent, their best fall drink is the trendy pumpkin spice latte. You may have to throw the fish a life preserver, as they can drown in that sea of sweetness.
