Cancer: Green Bean Casserole

This sign is intuitive and is so much more than what they appear to be on the surface. They can also be somewhat drawn to routines and stability. Green bean casserole, though it’s not for everyone, usually follows the same recipe no matter who’s making it. But like a Cancer, it delivers so much more flavor and flair than what a lot of people expect.

Libras are the epitome of people pleasers. They’re also known for their desirable aesthetics and indecisiveness.
