Astrological menu to celebrate the New 2014
At a time when transiting Jupiter is in the sign of Cancer, we can not ignore the topic of food. And if the choice of New Year’s outfit is more or less clear, the preparation of the festive table still raises many questions. Unfortunately, in the media and TV there is a lot of false information. It’s a shame that famous magicians and psychics go on about the public and do not know many obvious things. Therefore, I advise bowl listen to the astrologers. Representatives of the profession spend years and decades to learn the language of the stars and translate it into the language of earthly phenomena. They help us to be in harmony with the celestial phenomena and to organize correctly the most important events.
Everything has its time. Forget about that on New Year’s Eve we meet Year of Horse. It begins much later, at the time of the new Moon under the sign of Aquarius. Until January 30, 2014 Year of Snake continues. To celebrate the New Year on the European calendar, we consider the astrological aspects from December 31 to January 1. Moon and lunar cycles play an important role in the emotional mood, in the processes of digestion and in food preferences. This year, New Year’s Eve coincides with the last day of the lunar cycle, and January 1, 2014 the new Moon occurs. At this time the body is quite vulnerable to the effects of alcohol. Before the new Moon is useful to cleansing the body, meditate and not to indulge in culinary extravagances. In truth, these recommendations are poorly compatible with Russian mentality and traditions of the most hospitable holiday of the year. So just remember that everything is good in moderation.
The main landmark of the New Year menu is Moon in fiery sign of Sagittarius. Its influence extends to the entire globe, no matter where you are going to celebrate New Year: in the Alpine chalet or bungalow on the beach, in the status restaurant or in the domestic circle. Of course, the particular choice of food depends on the geographical coordinates, the climatic characteristics and individual preferences.
