FOR THE WEEK OF MONDAY, DEC 25TH, 2017

    • General

      General Horoscope

      Matters of the heart become tempered with caution and sobriety this week. Venus will edge into Capricorn on Monday, a sign known for insecurity but also major commitment and durability when it comes to love. Venus remains here until February 10, 2018, reminding us of how important it is to take your relationship seriously, to value it and to not take it for granted. We’ll also focus more on the responsibilities that come with partnership, as well as shared burdens rather than carefree, easy breezy romantic bliss. In fact, on the same day Venus moves into Capricorn, she’ll immediately link up to Saturn, the planet of karma and lessons. If a romantic attachment is too weighty, it might crumble under this pressure. But if the commitment and love is durable enough, that pressure will turn your connection into a beautiful diamond. Either way, you’ll be seriously schooled in your love life.


    • Aries

      Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

      Well, hello there you sexy, charismatic thing! Yes, that’s exactly what others will be thinking when you’re around them this week, Aries. You can count on it. Mars, your ruling planet, will make a glamourous link to mystical Neptune on Thursday, casting a spell of absolute movie-star sex appeal all over you. If you’re single, someone with emotional depths might become quite enamored with your vibe. If you’re in a relationship, then this will be a week of literal dream-come-true sexual experiences with your mate. What could be better?


    • Taurus

      Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

      You’ll have a deeper yearning to explore the things that really matter with your sweetheart this week. Venus, your ruling planet, will move into the part of your chart concerned with broad perspectives about areas such as spirituality, philosophy, and morality. You’re serious about making sure that you and your love are on the same page concerning these areas, and that will be strikingly clear on Monday. If there’s a divide between you on core areas you feel you should be in agreement on, then there might be a problem. Alternatively, you and your sweetheart might take on a serious course of study together.


    • Gemini

      Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

      The erotic connection between you and your partner will come up this week — but not in the way you might think. Although Venus will move into your 8th House of Shared Intimacy on Monday, she will immediately crash into Saturn, the planet of limitation and fear. Saturn just moved into this part of your chart last week, prompting a significant new lesson about facing any fears or insecurities connected to sex and intimacy. The most productive way to use this conjunction between Venus and Saturn would be to open up to your partner about any issue you might be having in this regard. You might be surprised to learn that you had nothing to fear in telling him or her. In fact, it’s a problem that, with conscious effort, can not only be resolved, but can lead to the most fulfilling intimate relationship you ever imagined.


    • Cancer

      Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

      Mars, the planet of sex and libido, moved into your romance sector on December 9, and is definitely waking you up in that department. Mars will be at a perfect angle to dreamy Neptune on Thursday, making it certain that romantic sexual fantasies are yours for the taking. If you’re not romantically attached, it’s possible that you’ll meet someone with whom you feel an instant physical and spiritual connection. Explore it! If you’re in a relationship, Venus will help smooth over some of the recent shock that Saturn might have put into you and your partner last week when he moved into your commitment sector. Yes, there is still work to do, but with Venus connected to Saturn on Monday, it’s likely that both of you are willing to share the responsibility.


    • Leo

      Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

      You might have a romantic dilemma this week that’s connected to your work environment. One of your colleagues might let you know that he or she has a crush on you. Although you’ll be flattered, you’ll be even more conflicted about what to do next. Are you violating office policy in any way? Will there be water cooler gossip? Is this person going to be able to handle it if you go out once or twice and then it fizzles out? So many questions, Leo. Because of this, you’re likely to do absolutely nothing. As a result, you may lose out on an opportunity for real love. Weigh the pros and cons but don’t get lost in them.


    • Virgo

      Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

      Your love life became a vital karmic focus for you last week when Saturn moved into your romance sector for the first time in nearly 29 years. Lessons in love will leave an imprint on your heart for years to come as a result of what Saturn will teach you from now through December 2020. Love planet Venus moves into the same area of your chart on Monday, immediately connecting to Saturn. If you’re single, it’s very possible that you’ll meet someone with whom you have a past life love connection to. You’ll know it because you will feel immediately at ease with this person, as if you’ve known and loved each other before. You have, and now you’ll have an opportunity to get it right.


    • Libra

      Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

      If you’ve been dating someone for a while, you and your love will make a vital decision this week: moving in together. You won’t reach it lightly, though, and there will be many strategy sessions where you’ll want to plan everything about this transition. This includes whether or not you’ll get a place of your own, move to your sweetheart’s place, or have him or her live with you. Don’t allow the planning to stress you out too much. Remember to celebrate this very important milestone in your partnership. Already living with your love? Then this week will be more about the loving distribution of chores around your home than hot passionate romance. It is what it is.


    • Scorpio

      Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

      Oh, Scorpio, we all know how deeply intense you are and how your mind can go the most extreme depths when it comes to love and sex. You’re in overdrive in this department this week, but it won’t get you into any dark trouble. In fact, it appears as if you’re in for a sexual and romantic reward. On Thursday, Mars, currently in your sign, will link up beautifully to enchanting Neptune, which is now in your true love sector. This can help you make a sexual fantasy a reality with your lover if you’re attached. If you’re single, it can bring a new dream lover your way. Enjoy!


    • Sagittarius

      Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

      There aren’t any grand bells and whistles going off in your love life this week, but if you’re in a relationship, you might feel extra support from your partner as you develop your talents and make a serious attempt to improve your cash flow. Another possibility, however, is that you are wondering if someone you’re dating is really into you, or if they’re using you for money or other resources that you can provide him or her. You’ll become keenly aware that this is a possibility based on the actions of your sweetheart this week. If any red flag does surface, you won’t be able to ignore it.


    • Capricorn

      Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

      Although Saturn recently moved into your sign prompting you to get serious about life in all possible ways, this week it’s going to focus decidedly on your love life. That’s because Venus will also move into your sign on Monday, the same day it aligns perfectly to Saturn. If you’re single, this might bring in a significant new soul mate relationship, and you’ll be doing a delicate dance with this person for quite some time. If you’re in a relationship, this connection might leave you feeling ready for the most serious commitment possible together: marriage.


    • Aquarius

      Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

      If your sweetheart is going through any health crisis, you’ll be there to fully support him or her. This might involve a short hospital stay or procedure, but it will also result in healing. So don’t waver in your optimism — even if you begin to feel a little insecure. If you’re single, it’s possible that you’ll be speaking to a counselor or trusted friend about what has been holding you back from fully loving someone. Much to your surprise, a new soulmate is likely waiting for you in the wings. Open your eyes so you can see the potential.


  • Pisces

    Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

    You might feel extremely frustrated and torn this week about whether or not to pursue a romantic relationship with someone in your social circle. It’s complicated, and you’ll weigh the pros and cons incessantly only to wind up doing nothing at all. Another possibility is that you are currently in a “friends with benefits” situation and will begin to realize that it’s not fulfilling your heart one bit. In fact, having a casual lover situation is leaving you feeling more lonely and isolated than ever. You crave something more, something with depth. Have the courage to look for it.

Daring Dating Horoscopes for the Week of December 25th

David Wells, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Time to get serious about a lot of things and nobody is talking turkey, well maybe a bit. Venus suggests you have a few love matters that need outing, showing up for or finally admitting to. Who is it you’re passionate about, what’s not working in a new romance? Get serious or get stuffed?

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Ambitious vibes could be tempting you to punch a little above your weight, to go for that ten when you’re a six at most? Hang on? Who’s telling you that? Who’s the ruler of ratings and compatibility? Nothing, nobody, is out of your reach, in fact if someone feels as if they are; that’s who Venus wants for you.
GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

It’s never an easy time if you’re on your own, but you’re not on your own Gemini? You have friends, family and maybe a cat, so what’s the issue? Ah, the old someone special myth. Don’t tell your family and friends they’re not special, definitely keep it secret from the cat. A slow few weeks; so what.
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Hubbalicious, loveadelic, cuddletopia, go on, make up a few more stupid words if you like, but you won’t be making up the feels that have you wishing there was some way of letting folks know how someone lights up your heart. Scrumpshalistic vibes a-plenty.
LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Mercury continues to offer you the gift of the gab, the wonderful ability to turn buying a coffee into the biggest flirt of your life. Handy. Uranus goes forward from the 2nd of January, a combination that says at last your flirting begins to pay off. Get that coffee to go.
VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

Single Virgo’s are experiencing a bit of a renaissance, suddenly you’re in vogue, suddenly everyone wants to know what goes on behind your kagool. They will have to form a queue, an orderly one at that, you won’t be forced into making a choice without first checking everyone’s credentials. At least twice. Busy.
LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Things may have been changeable, not going the way you wanted them to, but you’re ok with that, at least it’s not been dull! So now you get a little more stability, not much to be honest, but you do at least get to see who is interested and who was only here for the cheer.
SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Don’t make yourself to available for those who would like to get you under the mistletoe, in fact stay in at least one night and let them spend the night trying to figure out just where you are who you’re with. Especially someone you really, really like. Worst advice ever. Follow your heart, not your mate’s advice.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Mercury in your sign is chatty and usually that’s a good thing, encouraging you to flirt, to say hello to folks who are just your type. But, he’s gone into overdrive, he’s gone a bit off grid and you’re talking to folks who are as far from your type as you can get. Good.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Venus is in your sign, what more do you need to know? Sure, there are other things going on that are demanding your time, gift wrapping and traditions to uphold, but what about giving Venus a present by being present with someone who clearly wants to get to know you better? Focus Capricorn.
AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Until you let go of old energy nothing changes, nothing new can get through the old. You’re asked to make like Elsa and let it go, not altogether difficult for you Aquarius given your coolness. Or is that a myth? Are you anything but cool over and ex? Find a way to release the old and welcome the new.
PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Jupiter and Mars are beaming in extra energy, they’re combining their forces and putting some optimistic, fun loving vibes your way. Venus and her mates are all pushing for a new group, a new tribe, new faces to tempt you. All you have to do is show up.

Your General Horoscopes for the Week of December 25th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

You enter this Christmas week on a high, as you discover how much a certain sign really thinks of you. You’ll have no reason not to enjoy this festive month better than ever before. Buy an extra gift. You’re going to need it when you see who’s turning up. Talks you have socially about your career show you a new opening you had not previously noticed.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Confrontations you have been dreading can and will actually turn out to be a good thing. You realise that you were in control all along, even though you thought you weren’t. Those involved were just waiting for the chance to show you this fact. Christmas Eve promises to put you in the path of someone you’ve really missed.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

If close ones are asking you for promises and commitments you don’t really want, then talk to them Gemini. You have spent far too long in recent weeks and months worrying about things, but not actually doing anything about them. Freedom is yours if you ask for it. You’ve just forgotten how to take control.,

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Stop worrying about what has happened in the past and instead take control over what is going on in the here and now. Try to sit down and do your sums before Christmas day, as offers will be coming your way you’re going to want to take, but you are going to need to know your financial status to accept them.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You are so much stronger than you think Leo. This festive week will prove this fact as you begin to take the lead in areas of your life you usually give others control in. Your ruling planet the Sun, helps you to get back on track over Christmas with those you have grown distant from. Phone calls bring you an apology boxing day.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

You don’t mean to offend those you love, but if someone buys you a gift you don’t really want, then your disapproval is likely to be written all over your face. Try to deal with what is really on your mind before Monday, so you can make this Christmas one worth really celebrating.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

There is a really naughty feel to your chart, which could see you doing the opposite of what people ask just to make a statement. Know how far is too far to go my friend, or you will only end up undoing all of the repair work you did in November. I know you miss someone who is not around and this seems to be the source of your behaviour.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Problems which you think have got the better of you this Christmas are actually nothing more than a storm in a teacup. You finally start to focus on having fun from Sunday. You realise that others can’t control your decisions and actions this week, but you can and you will. Last minute changes to Christmas day bring relief and pleasure.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

The hard times you went through in recent months have only served to make you stronger Sagittarius. You use this Christmas to show thanks and to feel grateful for all that is now going right with your life. Don’t be afraid to say no to those who invite you out if you don’t want to spend time with them. This is your week to relax and not just for others to enjoy.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

You gave so much loyalty to those who gave you nothing but disrespect in return. It has taken you a long time to make sense of what happened over the last three months, but I know and you will soon, that you have come out of everything a better person. You’re emotionally richer and decisions you make Christmas and Boxing Day prove this.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

You want to back out of something you committed to, but you are not quite sure how to do so, are you Aquarius. Luckily for you, those involved have already picked up on your feelings and will be making such decisions easy for you. The need to tell others’ secrets on Boxing day must be resisted.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Advice you both give and take in the week ahead can help you to shape your life so it is more suited to your needs. It may be Christmas week, but you still seem to have your professional head on and you will be taking steps to shape your career ideas ready for the New Year. A delay on a legal dealing is actually a blessing.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, December 25th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Happy Christmas my friend! I know you enjoy this time of year, but I also know it sends thoughts of your past flooding back to you. Remember please that you are here to make fresh memories. Unbreakable ties will be made if you do.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Well, you’ve finally made it to Christmas day! For a while, you weren’t sure if plans could come to fruition, or if you could trust in the promises, but you could and you did.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
There is a lot for you to learn this Christmas about how others think and if they can commit to what you want and need in the year ahead. What you need to know from the stars is fate will ensure decisions are for the best.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
I think you have done so well this year. You’ve spent so much time listening to others needs and trying to accommodate their plans and ideas. Today you get thanks for this emotionally and verbally.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Someone is on your mind more than they should be this Christmas. This tells me that you have unfinished business with them and it should tell you that you do care, even though you say and think you don’t.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
All of the hard work you have done in trying to make this Christmas day a good one, can and will pay off if only you will finally relax. Knowing who you need to give space to is important. Listen to your instincts.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Are you as good at lying as you think this Christmas? I don’t think so! Why not come clean and admit what you really desire. Let’s face it, it’s the only way you’ll stand a chance of getting what and who you want.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
A sense of humour will serve you well this Christmas Day as some of the signs decide to do what they want when they want, no matter what arrangements they have committed to. Continue with your own plans. Better company awaits.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Trust yourself this Christmas day. You really do know more than you think Sagittarius. Spending time with those who have been through major changes helps you see what dramatic changes we can make once our heart commits.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Be patient. Those you will be seeing may be slightly slower to come round to your plans than you had hoped this Christmas day. Timings may be off, but good times will be had if you can all allow each other to be who you are. Ring for a glimpse at your new year.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
You’ve worked hard and although you may not have had the thanks you hoped for, your efforts will have been noted. Taking time out today to remember someone from your past will help you realise what their advice to you would be now.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Today you think of those who are no longer with you, but you also focus on those who have just entered your life. I hope you realise that others would approve if you are happy. Are you Pisces? Honest answers come from the stars today.

 

lines-christmas-040987

If You Were Born Today, December 25

You are a highly intuitive yet grounded and earthy person. You hear the unspoken and see the unseen with your very strong powers of perception, yet you tend to prefer to remain quiet much of the time. You do have a knowing look that can intimidate some and appeal to most. You are fair-minded and essentially a peacemaker, although you have tremendous backbone that you can call upon when needed. Famous people born today: Humphrey Bogart, Sissy Spacek, Annie Lennox, Anwar Sadat, Jimmy Buffett, Barbara Mandrell, Clara Barton.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.

Saturn transits your Sun this year, and this is stabilizing. You are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and honoring tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you,” people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work.

This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, will benefit you for years to come. One of the keys to success this year is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life.

The need to “get serious” about areas of your life where you’ve been slacking is likely now as Saturn passes over your Sun this year. New responsibilities are likely to present themselves this year, or you are likely to take them more seriously. Gone are the “rose-colored glasses.” You are required to put in the effort to clean up areas of your life that need some order. With your ability to accurately assess your life, you can make real headway. The kind of progress you make now may not seem significant for the time being, but you will look back on this period of your life as one in which you truly made REAL progress towards your goals.

Relationships may be stabilized and steady this year, or there can be a new sense of realism in existing partnerships. A sense of duty may lead you to sacrifice a personal pleasure for a cause or for a loved one; thus there could be times when you have to abstain from personal gratification for the time being. Financial discipline, realism, and maturity are possible during this period of your life. You are more conservative when it comes to spending, whether this is because circumstances are such that you need to penny pinch, or you are simply more realistic about your finances.

However, you’re also in a great position to creatively combine traditional and progressive approaches to relationships this year. For example, relationships that are on-off may stabilize or alternative setups can thrive. This is also the case in other key areas of your life, including career and finances.

Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or you could enjoy a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships.

Err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.

You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a good time for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing.

While there is certainly a practical focus in the year ahead, this is a strong year for spirituality and commitment to spiritual or metaphysical goals as well. Higher learning, mind expansion, or travel can also be in focus and very rewarding.

You’re in a good position for social meetings and events. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and there may be sudden or unexpected romance in your life.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increase and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

This is a powerful year for getting your life in order in a significant way. It’s also strong for new ideas and projects. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities, but also for tuning into new and progressive ideas and balancing your time between work and play. This is also a great period for a more mature approach to finances or relationships.

2017 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what–and who–you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

2018 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

Be careful with your phone this Boxing day. I don’t want people to read texts or words that you don’t want them to see. You’re keeping a secret but bear in mind it will eventually be better out than in.

Winter Love Horoscopes 2017-2018

Reveal how your heart will stay warm this winter season…


This winter invites us to get cozy, cuddle up, and reconnect. Two short days before Winter Solstice on December 21, serious Saturn enters structured Capricorn. Even the most independent among us may feel a strong desire to form lasting romantic bonds this season.

For single people, finding a soul mate could become more important than playing the field. Attached couples may grow closer, feeling a renewed determination to build a happy, healthy life together.

Two eclipses will inject magic into this winter season. The first occurs on January 31, when a Lunar Eclipse in Leo invites us to either make up or break up. Many couples will decide to take casual relationships to the next level. Unhappy alliances will go by the wayside, making room for the passion and excitement of true love. On February 15, the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius helps us to radiate love outward to the entire world.

Foods for the Winter Season

Nourish your spirit with foods for winter and the Sun in Capricorn


The Sun moved 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 foods 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 the Sun’s reign in Capricorn help strengthen and protect bones from calcium loss in all zodiac signs, but especially Goats. Any sign will benefit from eating the chosen foods, and can delight in including these scrumptious foods in any celebration during this emphasis on 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 zodiac signs, as everyone is in need of healthy bones. Beyond the health benefits, a beautifully cooked prime rib is the perfect entree to serve to friends and family when celebrating the season.

Satsuma Tangerines

These sweet, juicy citrus gems are loaded with vitamins A, C and potassium, all good for the bones and immune system. 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!
