Astrology and Diet

Updated on January 11, 2014

Perhaps the answer lies in the influence of the planets, namely the biggest culprit is the moon. More recent scientific findings confirm that lunar cycles affect the retention of fluids in the body and even metabolism. If you want to lose weight, it would be desirable to start a diet in those days that mark the beginning of four different lunar phases: the first quarter, full moon, last quarter and new moon. In order to purify the body, it is recommended to drink tea these days, normally designated for each zodiac sign, or to eat certain fruits and vegetables that are also defined for each sign of the zodiac.

In order to live in accordance with the cosmic vibrations, it is not enough just to consume certain foods for each sign of the zodiac, it is necessary to follow the rhythm of the seasons in nature, and even seven-day planetary rhythm diet.

In the spring it is necessary to purify the body from consequences of heavy winter nutrition and it is recommended to consume a large amount of fresh vegetables and salads, that encourage glands and metabolism.Then comes summer with leafy vegetables, which purify the blood, and after that the fruits of autumn full of vitamins that are necessary for the defense forces for the upcoming cold and wet seasons. A winter brings food rich in calories, that provides urgently needed heat to our body. The cosmic rhythms should be taken into account even when we prepare our food.

Every full moon gives new impulse to the vegetation, but its quality is always different, depending on the constellation in which the Moon is located. Moon travels through the zodiac 28 days. That's four weeks in a month. The seven-day week is a reflection of the seven great forces pulsing through our earthly world, which are manifested in the seven visible planets, seven metals, seven tones of the octave, the seven colors of the rainbow, the seven vital centers. So, seven days of a week correspond to a seven different qualities.

Therefore, there is an old division of plants into seven major groups spread over seven days of a week, depending on the planetary properties, which prevail in them. And so on, Monday refers all watery, so-called "Lunar vegetables", such as cucumber, melon, pumpkin, eggplant, etc..

Tuesday corresponds to the " Martian plants ": red vegetables or one with spines or thorns and bitter taste such as nettles , turnips , horseradish , pepper , and here and there a little meat .

Wednesday refers " Mercury's plants ": it is a fast-growing , slimy and very medicinal plants, such as onions , mushrooms , mallow , parsley .

On Thursdays, you can prepare a meal of sweet " Jupiter vegetables " such as: carrots, sugar beets , artichokes , parsnips .

Friday, or so-called " Venus's day " refers all fine, green vegetables , such as peas, green beans , asparagus and herbs for urogenital problems .

On Saturday you can put in your pot so-called " Saturn's vegetables ", such as asparagus or celery and dark bluish vegetables like blue cabbage or eggplant.

Finally , Sunday`s menu includes fine, white types of vegetables such as, for example cauliflowers .

Here`s the example of an ideal planetary meal : first come the raw foods that have a role to stimulate the secretion of digestive juices , then vegetable soup garnished with cheese and main course includes cooked whole grains with vegetables that belong to this day and fresh cheese with a homemade bread .


Planetary cuisine is focused on plants , because they receive cosmic energy and transform it, so that it can be used as food for humans and animals. Naturally fertilized, healthy plants abound in cosmic energies and open us to the true spiritual imagination, give strength and power of will, while the plants treated with artificial fertilizers and various toxins do not have the same quality .
