The ride has been a little bumpy, My Loves, since the lunar eclipse, yes?
But change is good,
and karma inescapable...
We have a beautiful opportunity now to manifest change,
to set our ship's course for the next six months,
and I'd like to begin from the inside...
Won't you join me?
This eclipse will not be the drama-queen that our full moon was, charged with emotions,
and it won't be a walk in the park, either.
Nerves are always running a bit high as we approach an eclipse, but this one is getting some love from Mercury and Pluto, so the assistance in transformation is great, particularly how we think and communicate.
I always feel strongly about eating light during a new moon, and this one is no different. That it occurs in earthy Taurus makes it easier to stay grounded, so use that energy: connect with nature, get outside, meditate...get your bare feet in the earth if you can, and connect with her core vibes. Envision the enormous power of the earth, way down at the center, rising through the dirt, entering your feet, traveling up throughout your body...breathe deep...know you are supported.
As for a purrfectly celestial supper on this most auspicious evening?
We could never allow the Venusian energy of Taurus to slip past us,
Now could we?
Let's. Get. Down.
Cosmic Corn Chowder
- 2 bags (10oz each) frozen organic corn or 6-8 ears fresh organic corn (make sure it's NON-GMO EITHER WAY!
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/4 C coconut or almond milk
- Celtic salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Defrost frozen corn or cut fresh kernels from the cobs. Set aside 1 cup of kernels for later.
Blend all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender, then add the remaining kernels. If you want to keep this dish raw, which is a very good idea during a new moon, you have a few ways to do it.
- Add hot spring water to the blender to your desired consistency
- Place the mixture into a container, then submerge it in a pot of hot water
- Warm it ever so gently on the stove, making sure not to heat over 118F
Of course you can cook it, as well. It will still be a light and amazingly healthy dish, not to mention creamy-delicious, all aflutter with silky avocado sensuality, sweet, nutrient-packed corn, mineral salts, and a little souk spice to keep things interesting.
It pairs very well with my Cheeky Ceci Pane, if you are looking for a little something to go with it, but keep it light...only eat one...(!)
Allright, Sugars. Whatever old, pointless, toxic habits you've been afraid to let go of,
Now is the time.
Fix your tiger's gaze on evolution.
Hatch those plans.
Oh, and if you're up for a game of strip poker,
