New Moon in Leo: Time for roasted eggplant guacamole HarryPagancoss.com

Today, the conjunction of the Sun with the Moon in the sign of Leo, or lunation, is a period of great importance.The New Moon represents the beginning of a new cycle. When it occurs in a particular astrological house or in a specific sign it has even more importance.

This time is also called the "growing" phase and marks the beginning of the synodic period. Traditionally, farmers considered this time suitable for planting crops with edible parts that are above the earth such as fruit, vegetables or cereals. Why? Also known as the expiratory phase, it is believed that the Earth is sort of "exhaling" or breathing out. Hence, food from that is outside is best to plant. This happens from the New Moon up to the next Full Moon.

On the other hand, when the phase starts decreasing- that is from the Full Moon until the next New Moon - the opposite happens. This is called the inspiring phase. Thus, plants with edible parts that are below the ground, in other words their roots, are preferred. These include carrots, potatoes, turnips and tubers in general. To celebrate this new cycle of New Moon and as the Earth sort of breathes out, let us prepare a dish that would be appropriate for all the zodiac signs: My roasted Eggplant Guacamole. With the world market open, produce from around the world is available in every corner of the country. Get plump and beautiful eggplants and mix them with sweet ripe avocados for a dip that will put everyone on the same page in the new cycle: happiness.
