If there was ever a season to sway us from our go-to morning coffee order, it would be fall. Each year, the seasonal drink lineup at Starbucks pumps out new brews with punchier names and spicier flavors. And although we may feel truly tempted by the idea of changing up our order, when we get to the front of the line and the barista inevitably asks, "The usual?" we tend clam up and abort the limited edition mission altogether.
But recently, as we sat sipping on our usual morning brews, sweater-clad and skimming the week's most recent zodiac predictions, something struck us — what if we used our horoscopes to step outside our fall order box? The ahead sign-based drink suggestions are here to serve as your autumnal inspiration for sloughing off the same and ordering up something new. Before you power on towards your personal sign and sip match — only to jump on the, "I am absolutely not a Pumpkin Spice Latte-ordering Aries," train — pause and consider celebrating the seasonal element of change in the air and embracing the unfamiliar. Because at the end of this transitional season, you won't know what power one tall Chile Mocha may unleash until you sip it.
