Green & Grains Salad- a Cancerian meal
On June 21st we move into the zodiac sign of Cancer in the skies, and the Moon is in Cancer too.
The day quality is moist-cool, the colour is green… The food-quality is carbohydrate; the part of the plant resonating is the leaf, and the organ system is the nervous system. A dish that would be perfectly Cancerian, here for you Angels!
When eating by the moon, pay attention to the way you feel.
Often an exact match is not what your body needs. Some of us find it more difficult to digest carbohydrates on a carbohydrate day, whilst for others, this is exactly what they crave.
Let your own intuition guide the way!
When the moon is waning, it is best to eat lightly and heathily, as our body is especially efficient at absorbing everything we put in or onit at this time. When the moon is waning it is easier to lose weight and toxins are more easily released.
This recipe from the lovely Doris Romano, Holistic Nutritionist, who is celebrating the Solstice at this time with a wonderful cooking school“Here’s one of my favourite (grain-based) salads, I call it “Greens & Grains”Dressing:3 tbsp olive oil2 tb red wine vinegar1 clove garlic, minced1 1/2 tsp Dijon1/2 tsp honey1/4 tsp each salt and pepperSalad:3 cups water1 cup wild rice or red rice4 cups of broccoli florets1 carrot, grated1/2 red onion, diced or 3 green onions, chopped1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped1/2 cup fresh parsely, choppedIn a medium sauce pan bring 3 cups of water and 1 cup wild rice to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer, and cook until rice is tender and kernels pop open, about 40-50 minutes. Uncover and fluff with fork. Set aside to cool.Steam broccoli florets until tender-crisp. Set aside to cool.Combine dressing ingredients in the bottom of a pretty serving bowl. Add cooled rice and broccoli and the remaining ingredients. Toss gently to combine.Serve with a large handful of baby spinach for extra leafy greens- and crunch!”
Did you know, Angels…
Cancer is a water sign and therefore it is not advisable to air bedding or ventilate the home for too long when the moon is in this sign. Also, athritis and rheumatism can play up at this time!
YOUR HEALTH IN THE TIME OFThe zodiac sign of the Crab rules the lungs, chest and stomach. Any remedies taken for problems with these ailments will be beneficial at this time. All surgery to these parts of the body should be avoided if at all possible! Remember Hippocrates (460-370 BC)- father of modern medicine- note:
“Do not touch with iron those parts of the body that are governed by the sign through which the moon is passing”
