Recipes for Winter and Sun in Capricorn

Cozy up to Astrology inspired recipes to warm the winter months

The Sun entered Capricorn on December 21, the Winter Solstice. During this time of year, celebrations to honor gods and goddesses have been held since ancient times, and still continue today in one form or another in Japan, China, India, Pakistan, and countless other places. It is also during this time that High Holy days for many of the world’s religions are celebrated, including Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrian and Islam.

Another festival, Saturnalia, in honor of Saturn, originated in Greece and became highly popular in the Roman Empire. The weeklong celebration culminated on December 23, after the Sun had moved into Capricorn. This is significant and a fortuitous time as Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn. Saturn may just be responsible for the original Winter Solstice festivities.

Capricorn rules the bones and the entire skeletal system. The foods chosen for Capricorn's time of year support density and help protect bones from calcium loss in all signs, but especially Goats. Any sign will benefit from eating the chosen foods, but will also delight in serving these recipes for any of the holiday celebrations during the reign of Capricorn and Saturn.

Beef (prime rib)

Beef is high in vitamin B12, calcium, phosphorous and zinc, all of which help maintain bone density, making it beneficial for Capricorn natives and all other signs, as everyone is in need of healthy bones. Beyond the health benefits, a beautifully cooked prime rib is the perfect entrée to serve to friends and family when celebrating the Holiday season.

Not only will it be delicious and excellent for you, it is a gift of good fortune in many cultures.
