Astrology and food are two of my favorite things, but when you put them together it’s lit! CatherineUrban swirled both together in Your Astrological Cookbook: The Perfect Recipe For Every Sign. She’s a horoscope columnist for BonAppetite.com and low-key foodie that seems to know a thing or two about a good recipe. Simon and Schuster sent me a copy to check out. I absolutely love it.As the book states, “Let your Stars Be Your Culinary Guide” I’m down for that, how about you? The book will assist you in finding the perfect dish for you and your guest that’s guided by the stars.
When I flipped to the Scorpio section, I was very happy with the recipes especially for the Triple Chocolate Cupcakes and the Dark ‘N’ Stormy. There are some really good recipes throughout the whole book. I plan on making every single one of the dishes in the Capricorn section. Besides breaking down recipes for each sign there’s also advice on how to use astrology to plan your meals.
Food has always been a give part of culture, especially since the beginning of time. In fact people would spend days planning the perfect menu and cooking an elaborate meal for a community to come together. Why not tap into the stars to see what you should cooks. This kitchen witch totally is all about that. It's a fabulous spin on a cookbook. There are some mouth-watering photos of the food in the book. However note that the book focuses more on recipes for each sign and tips on swirling astrology into your kitchen. It's the perfect addition to a star loving foodie. I give it a big thumbs up with a big “MIAM” (means yummy in French).
Are there days when you say to yourself “ Love of my life, where the hell are you”? Of course there are, it’s natural. When you are ready to find the person of your dreams, you want that moment to start right here and now.
Your thoughts unleash your power when it comes to love, so you are always conjuring love. What you think about you bring about. Know that the person you seek is seeking you. At any minute your life can change by the arrival of the one that you have been looking for.
Here’s a little love spell for you to cast to unleash more of your love power or if your mind is slipping into a negative place. You can light some candle before you do this, I recommend black or white candles. I am a big fan of black candles since they really absorb the energy that you put into them.
Close your eyes and put your hand on your heart.
Say 2 x:
I am love. I love myself. Dear love of my life, my love vibration has brought you to me spiritually. Physically, you almost here, any minute you shall arrive with no harm coming to you or me by your arrival. I am love. You are love. Together our love is unlimited. I love you, am gratitude for you, divine timing has been put into play. Blessed be.
This has now been officially sent out into the universe.
This is an easy spell to help bring more traveling/journey into your life. Get your passport ready!
Magick tools needed:
• A small hand held fan
• Dish of fresh mint
• A small light feather
The fan should be a hand held, the kind that you wave. In other words an old school fan, like they use to do in churches or one of those cute Chinese fans. As for the feather, it should be small and light, kind of like the ones from a goose down pillow.
When you are ready to conjure, breathe in the smell of mint. Breathe in slowly and take your time. Begin to visualize yourself in different places, seeing different landscapes, places you have always wanted to go. Toss the little feather in the air, and use the fan to blow it around the room. Try to keep it airborne as you see yourself visiting/moving new places in the near future.
Eventually, let the feather land in the dish of mint, then take a few more sniffs of the mint to slowly close out of the ritual and bring your energy back in. Repeat this for the whole week, every morning (or night). Don't forget to put an intention into this spell, it is the most important ingredient.
