The moon controls the intake and assimilation of food in accordance with occult canons. Consequently, the feeding process and its basic laws are described by the cycle of the Moon’s movement along the Zodiac.
NUTRITION LUNAR CALENDAR: THE CYCLES OF THE MOON
There is another, alternative method for determining the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of food intake. It is based on the analysis of the cycle of the Moon along the Zodiac relative to the Sun. It should be noted that the lunisolar cycle is one of the most ancient astrological instruments.
People, looking at the sky, watched the Moon, how it grows, moving away from the Sun in its motion, becomes complete in opposition to the luminary, and then decreases, becoming invisible. In some civilizations, the entire life of people was subordinated to this astronomical cycle.
Naturally, the feeding process was carried out in accordance with the position of the moon relative to the sun. Indications of such an attentive attitude to cosmic cycles are found in the cultural monuments of the ancient peoples of Central and South America, as well as Babylon, India and Iran.
LUNAR CALENDAR NUTRITION: MOON IN THE FIRST QUARTER
So, there was a new moon and the Moon, parting with the Sun, is in the first quarter (the angular distance from the Sun is 0 – 90 degrees). During this period, it was recommended to eat in moderation, mainly in the morning, to avoid fatty, heavily fried and spicy foods. During the transition from 1 to 2 quarters (angular distance from the Sun 90 degrees), it was recommended to slightly reduce the amount of food consumed.
MEALING ON THE LUNAR CALENDAR: THE MOON IN THE SECOND QUARTER
When the Moon passed its 2nd quarter, rushing towards the full moon (angular distance 90 – 180 degrees), it was considered possible to eat a lot, varied, giving free rein to their culinary preferences. At this time, all excesses are allowed, since a person has a peak of his emotional energy and he wants to taste all possible pleasures.
LUNAR CALENDAR NUTRITION: THE MOON IN THE THIRD QUARTER
Further, the Moon begins to approach the Sun again, passing through the 3rd quarter (angular distance 180 – 90 degrees). This is a period of a gradual decrease in the amount of food consumed. When the Moon passes by 3 quarters, it is better to eat well-processed, refined food. You can use various food additives, spices.
LUNAR CALENDAR NUTRITION: THE MOON IN THE FOURTH QUARTER
When the Moon is in 4 quarters and disappears from the sky, approaching the Sun, you need to smoothly transition to a two-day fast during the new moon.
LUNAR CALENDAR NUTRITION: THE MOON IN SIGNS AND NATIONAL CUISINE
When the Moon is in Aries, you can visit a German pub, taste pork legs, Bavarian sausages, wash it all down with strong beer, or taste the achievements of the national cuisines of Mongolia and Indonesia, also symbolically associated with the sign of Aries.
When passing the Moon through Taurus, it is recommended to pay tribute to the culinary delights of Ukraine and Poland, and to the services of exotic lovers – Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
The United States is under the sign of Gemini. During the Moon’s passage through Gemini, visit a fast food restaurant. At the same time, one should not forget that our southern neighbors, Armenia and Georgia, are under the rule of the Gemini, whose culinary traditions are known far beyond their borders.
The moon, passing through its abode – the sign of Cancer, makes us think of distant India and its spicy, mostly vegetarian cuisine.
When the Moon enters the sign of Leo, arrange a holiday in a Mexican restaurant, but do not overdo it with spicy as spines of a cactus, national seasonings.
During the transit of the night star through the sign of Virgo, one cannot but pay tribute to the original Japanese dishes of seafood and exotic vegetables, while not forgetting to taste sushi and marbled beef steak. For lovers of sophisticated and refined cuisine, we recommend visiting the French restaurant, where “haute couture” cuisine reigns supreme.
Traditional English cuisine matches the stiffness and coldness of Libra. However, if you do not want to indulge in moderation in food, you can taste the delights of Czech or Swiss cuisine, differing in more democratic views on food, and, of course, taste the delicacies of exotic Thai cuisine.
The passage of the Moon through Scorpio makes us remember the Arab and Persian cuisine with its invariable lamb dishes, and, of course, the world-famous oriental sweets.
The sign of Sagittarius, when the Moon enters it, will delight us with an abundance of cuisines of Southern Europe, as well as the brightness and originality of the dishes of the Andean countries (Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and partly Brazil).
The expulsion of the Moon in Capricorn inclines us to some asceticism, which is quite consistent with the traditional Chinese cuisine with its main components – rice, asparagus, vegetables, herbs, river fish.
The moon in Aquarius is the best time for a sweeping and plentiful Russian feast with vodka, kvass, pancakes with caviar, rich cabbage soup, crumbly cereals, crumpets and ruddy pies, pies and pie pies, a variety of pickles and, of course, the presence on the table of the “queen of Russian rivers” – stellate sturgeon, sturgeon, sterlet.
The religious sign of Pisces poses the problem of restrictions on the quality of food. It is difficult to ignore the kosher food of Israel (associated with the sign of Pisces), especially the orthodox part of its population. This kind of kitchen is ideal for fasting. However, there are also more democratic culinary traditions of the countries under the sign of Pisces: Finland, South Korea, Ceylon.
Thus, you can enjoy the variety of gastronomic delights of the peoples of the world for a whole month. The main thing is that there should be a developed sense of proportion and there are no contraindications for health reasons. Enjoy your meal.
