Today’s energies ask us to ‘Cook Something Bold and Pungent.’ Here’s a recipe for one of my favorite vegetable meals, Asparagus with Mustard Sauce. You will need two tablespoons of ghee or butter, a half cup of whipping cream, two heads of garlic, peeled and diced, two tablespoons spicy brown mustard, one tablespoon fresh lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. You will also need two pounds of fresh asparagus spears, trimmed. In a small pan, melt the butter over a low heat and add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is browned, approximately five minutes. In another bowl blend together the cream, mustard, lemon juice and condiments. Bring two quarts of water to a boil over medium heat and cook the asparagus until tender, about three minutes. Drain the asparagus, place on a serving plate, pour the sauce over it, and then top with the browned garlic. Bon appetite!

Banishing A Love Rival
By Edain McCoy
Dragon’s Blood Ink
This spell from New Orleans encourages a love rival to turn his or her attention elsewhere and is best done on Friday or Saturday night during a Waning or New Moon. Beginning after Sundown, gather some raw meat a little past its prime, something “broken,” some angelica, a garlic clove and a leek. Tie these items together in a cheesecloth bound by black thread. On the outside paint the letter “X” three times in dragon’s blood ink. Douse the entire charm know as a gris-gris in New Orleans in lime juice. Before dawn, take the charm to your rival’s home and toss it onto the lawn saying:
“By this spell, you must find a love that steals your heart and mind. Turn your heart from my love, and make a new start.”
Money Simmering Potpourri
-2 Cinnamon Sticks, broken up
-4 Tablespoons Whole cardamom Seeds

With your fingers, mix these ingredients in a small bowl while visualizing increased prosperity. As you mix them, recite aloud or to yourself:

When you feel you are done chanting, pour items into a pan that holds about 1 pint of water and simmer on stove. I have simmered mine on and off for several days, adding water as needed

Is it a coincidence that ‘Bathtub Party Day’ and ‘Repeal Day’ both fall on the same date? And even though I’ll drink to the latter, I’m going to stick with the former for today’s tip. This next bath, taken from ancient Taoist Feng Shui texts, will help to wash digestive difficulties right down the drain. Add ten drops of sandalwood essential oil to your bath water. Place three tablespoons of soybeans, two tablespoons of fennel seeds and one tablespoon of rice into a net and suspend that in the bathwater. Reclining in the tub, close your eyes and gently massage the slightly tender spots directly beneath your shoulder blades. Also massage the heels of your feet. Twenty minutes of this healing bath and you’ll feel good as new — or even better!

If you have a dirty mind, you’ll be right in the flow on this ‘National Mud Pack Day.’ For centuries people have discovered the magical benefits of using mud for a beautiful complexion. Mud cleanses and purifies the skin, and its mineral rich properties help rejuvenate and restore. And it’s all-natural and chemical-free! For dry skin, ‘Fuller’s Earth’ or Multani mitti is recommended. You will need three tablespoons of that as well as two tablespoons of plain yogurt, a half-teaspoon of almond oil and three drops of rose water. Put the yogurt in a bowl and add the earth gradually, stirring gently with a wooden spoon. Pour the almond oil and rose water into this mix and continue stirring until the ingredients form a loose paste. Apply this mudpack for twenty minutes before washing it off. For oily skin put three tablespoons of Fuller’s Earth in a bowl with few drops of fresh lime juice and three drops of rose water. Mix until a loose paste forms and wear for thirty minutes. Wash it off your face and then watch the wear and tear of your life go down the drain, exactly where it belongs.
