The Keurig, the Chemex, and Dietary Gnosticism, Alchemy of food

Everything is interconnected. I read this blog and loved the authoress’s take on it. Food is always a psychological, emotional and alchemical process literally as well as  physical necessity.

On the subject of coffee which we down quite a lot of in my household. We do not use Keurigs or any other pre-fab food. Keurigs make mountains of eco-waste and instant convenience usually means environmental and psychological dystopia.  We use French press coffee. Only organic coffee.

We cook everything from scratch in my household. We threw out the toxic microwave years ago. They have been banded in Japan and Sweden for over ten years. It is slower yes. My daughter complains there is never anything to eat quickly which is true. It is so much more wholesome healthier and satisfying to cook everything from scratch. Ok we are just starting to get into making bread. My husband makes incredible pizzas from scratch.. it is slower yes. but much more rewarding. I like the alchemy of cooking

This is a unique opportunity: VESTA is the Roman Goddess of the hearth, home and fire. She represents focus, determination, care, keeping the home fires burning. All fires symbolize the spirit and kundalini energy.

Vesta was a very important ancient Roman Goddess who symbolizes the alpha and omega the beginning and the end  the source {Fire/ Spirit} from which all emerges and to which all must return. Her name was given to the fourth asteroid discovered in 1807. Vesta’s symbol is the sacred flame. Her name is familiar to us today through the words investment, investigate, investiture, invested.

Vesta was a greatly revered Roman Goddess. Her round roofed Temple was a foundation of Rome from before antiquity. She was worshipped as the sacred hearth fire itself, the spark of life, which was necessary for life to be sustained and formed the basis of all hearths in each and every home. Vesta rules all sacred spaces, a sweatlodge, or your meditation space where you focus within. 

The original Vestal Virgins were not chaste at all. Her origins are extremely ancient. Virgin originally meant a woman who is whole and complete and answers to no one but her Goddess and is owned by no man. The original Vestales were sacred sexual priestesses who controlled, focused and used sacred tantric sexuality as a way to unite the sacred fire of orgasm with the earthly human realm. They embodied the Goddess and brought Her energy through to give to men to keep the sacred alive as a Holy sacrament. Kundalini energy is the original sacred flame. The priesteses were able to conserve their sexual energy and to use it for spiritual ecstacy and to give birth parthenogenicaly.

The Vestal Virgins who were chaste was a later corrupt Patriarchal interpretation. The famed Vestal Virgins who served in her temples were women were were chosen from a young age to keep the sacred flame always alight.  The Vestales swore thirty year vows of chastity. The penalty for breaking the vows was death by being buried alive or having to swallow molten lead. This was a dire warning to keep the women from going back to their origins.  Vestal Virgins were of high class, educated, independent and respected.  

Vesta symbolizes sexuality through celibacy or through sacred celebration of sex. She rules commitment, dedication and sacrifice to a common goal. She is relenting in her purpose. Virgo is the sign associated with Vesta.

Interestingly, Vesta’s annual celebration, the Vestalia took place over 8 days from June 7- June 15 and was a time when the inner sanctum was opened to all women to visit the temple  and make offerings to the Goddess.  

A special sacred cake was baked from spelt flour and water from a sacred spring carried in consecrated jugs. The water was never permitted to come into contact with the earth between the spring and the cake, which also included sacred salt and ritually prepared brine as ingredients. The hard baked cakes were cut into slices and offered to Vesta in all public ceremonies.

At the end of the Vestalia, the Temple was thoroughly cleaned, swept of all debris which was carried away to be disposed in the Tiber River. On the last day of Vestalia Ovid says,  June 15th  became a holiday for bakers and all who worked with grain who hung flower garlands and small loves of bread.

 As the synchronicity is so exact. Do a modern ritual to honor Vesta and bake a special cake which you offer to the Goddess who also lives with in you. As you are alive you are the keeper of your own sacred spark. This offering brings you blessings of new commitments in the physical realm. Keep the hard cake as a reminder of the goal. 

Venus in LEO is love in a hugely courageous open heart proud fiery pussy cat. The Egyptian Goddess Bubastis- is this where the origin of the word boobs comes from ? is one expression of Venus in Leo. She is the QUEEN, who demands to be treated regally. Only the best for her. Venus in Leo opens your heart big and wide, to express your creative passion as you wish. Courageous and fearlessness you are unafraid to love as you wish.  Venus in Leo loves rich luxurious beautiful things. 

What about Saturn Retrograde at zero degrees Sagittarius? We think of Saturn as masculine but it was traditionally seen as Feminine as the Great Mother, the Empress, Tarot Trump #3. We are all born in the physical realm through a woman. EVERYTHING IS BORN OF THE FEMININE, is the first sacred law. Saturn in Sagittarius is the mature Sage. She is a crone, she has been a maiden, a mother and is post-menopausal and keeps her sacred menstrual blood within her which ensure her wisdom. She is the most respected member of the tribe. A mature purple wearing warrior Goddess who takes no shit from anyone and doesn’t care what anyone thinks.  Her fire is of burning embers, which emits more heat and burns longer.

Use the energies of this powerful FEMALE Trinity at zero degrees to initiate your new focussed intentions. Do a fire ceremony and call in Vesta, Venus and Saturn into your sacred space .

Have three red candles and create a mesa or sacred platform of power. Initiate this on June 7 to honor Vesta and your own new focus and intentions. Breathe the sacred serpent or kundalini fire up through your chakras. If you dont know what you want, ask the Goddesses for help and to guide you. This is a great opportunity to attract new loves into your life, new success and steadfast grounded purpose. Do this every day for 8 days. 


Saturn wil re-enter Scorpio on June 14/ June 15 in Eastern parts of the world. On the 15th Saturn is then ruled by Pluto again and Pluto is under Saturn’s soveriegnity. They are once again in Mutual reception. June 15 is the last day of the Vestalia. Clean your temple outer and inner. Invest in yourself. Bake a Vesta cake. 

Focus on what you want to create. All the zero degrees give us opportunities to reset our spiritual goals and to reignite our passions and new waves of expressing love.

This is the place where the MOON lives. It is her home sign, the 4th house. The MOON in Cancer gently rocks us like the waves of the ocean’s tides. It is a time of  feeling sentimental, emotional, tummy led, enjoying comfort food, and needing to snuggle.

Stay home if you can, happy as a clam. Home body.  

Women nurture your wombs and your breasts, This is what the Cancerian moon governs. Men need to honor and appreciate the wombs as the Holy Grail of Life and the breasts which nurse the babies for the miracles that they are. 

Call your MOM, and remember your mom if she is passed on. It was from her womb and her mother’s womb that you are here now. Honor the mothers, grandmothers and all your female ancestors, Like Russian dolls..
