Invite Love Into Your Home

Invite Love Into Your Home

This Valentine’s Day, the Moon will be in romantic, domestic Cancer, and with a few heartfelt intentions and romantic recipes, you can make your place a love-enhanced space that attracts love. Empower yourself -- and your home -- for this holiday and all the days to follow!

BOUDOIR OF LOVE
Your bedroom is the most intimate place in your house, a space for healing and restoration. You retire every night to dream your most precious dreams. If you were visiting your bedroom as a guest, would you want to sleep in it? Be honest! Make your bedroom into a real-life cocoon of self-love, a romantic homage to the Moon, the guardian of healing and unconditional love, and to Venus, the Goddess of Love herself.

The Bed
As the center of your love temple, your bed should be sumptuous and inviting. Add fluffy pillows, fabulous fabrics and your own personal style. Don’t forget to play with color. Red has the passion of Mars, the God of War and Sex, which can be too direct; use deeper tones to ground the energy and make it divine. White is the absence of color, and its purity magnifies and intensifies all surrounding colors -- just like the silvery Moon. Orange is a sensual, exciting color, bringing sexuality and creativity into your bedroom, a color of Venus.

The Toilette
No mere bathroom – this is the place you transform yourself every day. Place seashells and copper pennies next to your sink, as sacred offerings to the Goddess of Beauty and Love. Be sure to place your ritual Venus objects (make-up, perfume, jewels) in a special place of honor. These aren’t just accoutrements, but sacred ritual objects of Venus.

FOOD LOVE MAGIC
Baking a batch of cookies, a cake or a tart can help you forget that tart who ran off with your date. Yes, emotional baking can be cool, but did you know there are ingredients that love magicians have been putting into food for years -- foods that are guaranteed to sweeten anyone’s tongue?

Apple: The fruit of original sin. Definitively blessed by Venus, Goddess of Love. 
Basil: Unlucky in love? Try cooking with fresh basil, herb of Jupiter, God of the Lucky. 
Banana: What you see is what you get! A fruit of Mars, God of Sex. 
Chocolate: A substitute for love? Maybe. Chocolate contains the same chemicals that stimulate love. Warning: may increase your desire for physical contact. 
Figs: According to the Greeks, figs cause spontaneous lovemaking. 
Oysters: Feeling kinky? These sea creatures change sexes when it suits them.
