Cosmic Cooking: Recipes for Winter Solstice and Sun in Capricorn

Cozy up to Astrology inspired recipes to warm the winter months

The Sun moves into Capricorn on December 21, which also marks the Winter Solstice -- the shortest day/longest night of the year, and a night when we're most certainly hungrier than usual. Good thing we've got some Astrology-inspired recipes just perfect for 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.

Some believe the Winter Solstice to be the “dark night of the soul.” On this longest night, the Ancients thought the veil between the worlds was the thinnest. If the night was spent in meditation and reflection, one could gain insight to their past, present, and future. This tradition and philosophy is still practiced by many cultures throughout the world.

Capricorn rules the bones and the entire skeletal system. The foods chosen for Capricorn 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.

Satsuma Tangerines

These sweet, juicy citrus gems are loaded with vitamins A, C and potassium, all good for the Capricorn bones. All other signs will also benefit from their properties. If you find a bright orange Satsuma in your Christmas stocking, don’t think Santa is being chintzy. Not only will it be delicious and excellent for you, it is a gift of good fortune in many cultures.

Black-eyed peas

These peas, or beans as some call them, are very high in zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium, with trace amounts of B vitamins and vitamin C, making them just what the doctor ordered to keep your bones healthy and strong. They have long been considered lucky to eat on New Year’s Eve, a theory dating back to ancient Babylonia. All signs wanting a prosperous year ahead should fix a big pot of these healthy legumes.

Collard Greens

These dark greens are rich in vitamins A, C, K, manganese, calcium and trace amounts of B vitamins. They look like folded greenbacks, which is the reason they are considered lucky!  It is said if you want to ensure a wealthy and successful year, eat lots of these tasty greens. Have a big dish with your black-eyed peas for double the luck and double the boost to your bones!

As the Sun moves into Sagittarius on November 22, we'll enter the final month of fall and begin preparing for winter -- but first comes Thanksgiving. Sagittarius rules travel and religion, and represents freedom. It is highly appropriate Thanksgiving falls during Sagittarius Sun time, as it celebrates the culmination of the ultimate travel to unknown territory by people seeking freedom -- freedom to fulfill their religious beliefs without fear of retribution. And, of course, it's a time of feasting, giving thanks and gathering with friends and family. ... continued »
