Food in astrology is linked to a few different points: the 4th house, Cancer, and the Moon (comfort food), the 2nd house, Taurus, and Venus (indulgence), and asteroid Ceres, who who rules food in general. If you’re someone who works with food, you’ll often have a strong 2nd/4th house emphasis, multiple planets in Taurus or Cancer, a prominent Moon or Venus, or important Ceres (conjunct a personal planet, angle, or in the 1st house, or making many aspects to the planets in your chart). You can also see Venus, the Moon, or Ceres in the 2nd house (of money), 6th house (of work), or 10th house (of career), or positively aspecting the ruler(s) of those houses.
Venus or Jupiter in the 2nd or 4th houses can help you love food or cooking, as can having Ceres conjunct, sextile or trine Venus, Jupiter, or conjunct the 1st, 4th, or 10th house cusps, or having Venus or the Moon in the 5th house. The 5th house rules your hobbies, so having Venus or the Moon there can make cooking something you view as a hobby (often seen with bakers). The 5th house emphasis can also be seen with foodies.
You may not like the cook at all if you have a difficulty aspect natal Moon or Venus, no planets in Taurus or Cancer or in the 2nd or 4th houses, or a difficulty aspected Ceres. You may have conjunctions, squares, or oppositions to the Moon, Venus, or Ceres by Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto. Saturn or Pluto in the 2nd or 4th house can also make cooking something you don’t care as much for, though it can also be something that you grow to love over time (Saturn) or that you can use as a way to transform yourself (Pluto).
If you’re someone who loves to try international cuisine, this can be seen with Jupiter, the 9th house, and Sagittarius, so you can have a personal planet or Jupiter or Ceres in Sagittarius or in the 9th house, or Jupiter conjunct, sextile or trine your natal Sun, Moon, Venus, or Ceres.
And you may not like cooking or be much of a foodie at first, but you can become one if you see these aspects develop in your progressed chart, or with transit Venus, Jupiter, or Ceres in your 1st, 2nd, or 4th houses or conjunct, sextile, or trine your natal Sun, Moon, Venus, or Ceres.
