Tonight's Honey Moon

Tonight the honey moon rises.  This moon, not seen in a century or so, is close to the summer solstice.  June is a traditional month for marriages and handfastings, making this moon a perfect time to work on harmony in relationships, methinks. 

If you are joined with a partner and wish to welcome a stronger sense of love, harmony, and even lust into your relationship, tonight is a good night to do it.  There are a variety of ways, of course (wink, wink, nudge, nudge), but one way is through the use of food.

The official statement on aphrodisiacs is that they’re bunk, but who knows for certain?  After all, intent can go a long way.  A moonlit dinner for two featuring some of the foods and ideas from this post could very well increase feelings of love, lust, and attraction.  If you are single, I would consider this a good night to work on drawing your suitor to you (as long as you aren’t being specific and working against someone’s free will, of course!).

Some of the best-known aphrodisiacal foods are oysters, asparagus, and strawberries.  While those may not go that well together to form one dish, they can certainly play parts in a romantic meal. 

Others include:
·         Apples
·         Apricots
·         Arugula
·         Bananas
·         Basil
·         Eggs
·         Garlic
·         Honey
·         Salmon
·         Shellfish such as clams and scallops

Honey Moon Menu:

·         Arugula salad
·         Smoked salmon quiche
·         Stir-fried asparagus with garlic and chili
·         Apples and honey (add a sprinkle of cinnamon)

Don’t forget the wine!  

A simple tomato-basil sauce and pasta will do the trick, as well.  No need to get too fancy. Have some strawberries for dessert. 

Eat beneath the light of the moon, if possible, or turn off the lights and open the blinds to allow the rays of the honey moon to enter your home.  Allow the rays to touch the food.  Feed each other.  Hold hands. Look into each other’s eyes and remind one another of what you love about the other person.  Make some magic together.

If you are single and looking:

Light a pale yellow candle to match the color of the moon, or rely solely on moonbeams. Grab a heart-shaped strawberry dipped in honey.   Gaze at the moon for a while and think about what it represents to you.  What do you see on the surface?  Some see a man in the moon, while others see a lady or a rabbit.  (Hey...rabbits...fertility...) 

Close your eyes and meditate on finding your perfect match.  Again, you do not want to think of a specific person; you want to think instead of the qualities that work with your own. Talk to the Divine.  Let the universe know you are ready for your love.  Your heart, mind, and soul are ready and willing to receive love.  You are worthy of love.   When you're ready, eat that strawberry and visualize.  

Happy full moon, and happy Friday the thirteenth!
