Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Looks aren't everything to Libras, but they do matter—which means you probably aren't one to settle for a store-bought cup-of-noodles soup. This easy recipe, however, gives the old-school meal a DIY makeover (and it's no slouch in the beauty department, either). You place thin egg noodles, powdered vegetable bouillon, a pinch of sugar and some shredded, or chopped, carrot, scallion, bok choy, garlic and chili into a jar; pour boiling water over it all; and, let stand 10 to 15 minutes. The noodles and vegetables become soft and tender, and the water will turn into a delicious savory broth. It's customizable, healthy and gives you an "I made this!" pride that no disposable bowl ever could.
