Eating habits and behaviour patter of Earthlings born between
21st of May – 21st of June
Mercury rules the lives of these people.
According to legends Hermes is the son of Zeus and Maia. The planet Mercury received its name from the Roman counterpart, Mercurius. Apart from the renaming the Roman mithology did not do much for Hermes-Mercurius. He became famous through the Greek stories.
Hermes was the spokesman of gods of Acropolis. He is usually depicted with two snakes – the Caduceus, the symbol of great knowledge and healing – and a comfortable leather sandal to make his wanderings easier. He was the god of ability, intelligence, skilfulness, shrewdness and resourcefulness. Protector of merchants and thieves and the guide of dead souls. He brought the science of writing to mankind. He lit the bonfires on Olympus and helped great speakers and philosophers. His thoughts were gathered and brought to us in forms of books by the name of Hermes Trismegistos. He loved mischief and couldn’t stand boredom.
His children born from his numerous love affaires are: Autolukos, Polubos, Eurutos, Euandros, Eudoros, Eleusis, Daphnis, Abderos and Pan.
Mercury is the first planet from the Sun. A small rocky like place. It rotates around the fireball anticlockwise once in every 58.57 Earth Days. In spite of its size Mercury is responsable for the Sun spot cycles.
The ruling stars of the Spring Mercury earthlings are:
Perseus (21st of May – 31st of May)
Orion (1st of June – 7th of June and 17th of June – 21st June)
Auriga (8th of June – 16th of June)
Earthlings under the jurisdiction of the Spring Mercury make friendships extremely easily. Also sympathetic and great listeners. They love to talk, to exchange thoughts and views; draw their life energy from conversations. However these people, who are very understanding often misunderstood by others.
The soul of a Spring Mercury person is brighter than the Sun itself. They take care of important friendships and able to forget the non-important ones from one minute to another. They like to be the centre of attention, extremely proud of their knowledge and their good nature.
Make judgement easily over others. They are able and convincing speakers. Despite all beliefs they do not really like eating, however, they willing to put up with it for the sake of a good company.
The kitchen of a Spring Mercury person is a fascinating place. Full of beautiful containers, flowery boxes and colourful dishes he or she collected from all over the world.
They indulge in exotic dishes shared with exotic people. Adore everything forgotten, old, far-fetched; customs, herbs and spices from faraway lands. Appreciate old, full-bodied wine and good gin. Often use those as stimulants for great thoughts.
onion soup with cheese
1 kg onion mars
100 g smoked bacon jupiter
1 chicken cube pluto
1 tablespoon walnut oil mercury
10 cl good brandy pluto
4 tablespoon yoghurt venus
200 g hard cheese venus
1 pinch of salt moon
1 pinch of freshly ground black pepper mars
1 bunch of fresh parsley saturn
Bring to boil 1 and ½ litres of water and throw in stock cube. Boil for a further minute.
Slice up bacon nicely. Put it in a frying pan with oil and fry until brown.
Peel onion and slice thinly. Add to bacon, stir and cook until onion becomes transparent.
Add mixture to water and cook for 25 minutes over low heat. Then add brandy and yoghurt.
Grate cheese and stir into mixture.
Add salt if needed.
Serve very hot decorated with finely chopped fresh parsley.
Offer freshly ground black pepper with it.
Vegetable cube could be a substitute for chicken cube – mercury.
If you do not want to use bacon add a pinch of smoked salt – mars instead.. However, taste food for salt after adding the cheese.
I recommend walnut oil for obvious reasons. If it is not available you may use sunflower oil – sun instead.
Add parsley at the very end. This way it remains bright green and crispy.
In most cases black pepper should be added to a dish at serving and be always freshly ground. It gives a wonderful aroma and brings out the flavour of the dish.
chickenpaprikash with cheese pasta
1 medium chicken venus
1 big onion mars
2 cloves garlic mars
1 tablespoon paprika mars
4 tablespoon walnut oil mercury
1 chilli pepper mars
1 pinch of salt moon
for the pasta:
500 g dried small square pasta saturn
500 g ricotta cheese venus
200 g smoked bacon jupiter
250 g yoghurt venus
1 teaspoon salt moon
Clean and cut up chicken.
Peel onion, chop finely and fry in a big saucepan on oil until light brown. Then pour in paprika and stir.
Throw in chicken pieces and fry on high heat for a minute stirring constantly.
Add a cup of water, the salt, the chilli pepper, and the garlic and cook until soft over medium heat, covered.
Cook pasta in plenty of salted water. Drain and fold into a saucepan.
Meanwhile chop bacon or ham and brown in an empty frying pan stirring from time to time. Keep aside.
Mix cheese, yoghurt and the fried bacon. Pour on the pasta and mix gently using 2 wooden spoons.
Serve on a big plate with the chicken poured on the top.
Follow the cooking directions given on the pasta bag very carefully. I cannot imagine more unpleasantness made to food than overcooked pasta. Try to keep it on the famous al dente level. Dente stands for tooth in Italian. According to them pasta is only good if you still need your teeth to cut it.
Vegetarians may use mushroom – jupiter instead of meat. You will not be disappointed.
Bacon and ham are optional.
pineapple and strawberry mix
1 whole pineapple saturn
4 cups of strawberries venus
1 bunch of fresh basil mars
4 tablespoon good but not very sweet liqueur sun
Cut off the top of the pineapple and keep it aside. Peel the fruit lengthwise and dice up to bite size pieces. Wash strawberries with leaves on. Pick basil leaves off the stem and wash well. Take 8-12 Chinese wooden skewers. Put on 1 pineapple, then 1 strawberry then 1 basil leaf. Start from the beginning.
Place pineapple top on a big plate and arrange the filled skewers around.
Sprinkle with the liqueur.
Tinned pineapple may be used instead of the fresh. In this case use any green tree leaves that you washed well for decoration.
Use toothpick instead of Chinese skewers if you wish. This case you make bite size pieces.
Offer tropical fruit juice – sun with the dish. If you must indulge in alcohol I would suggest a drop of light, white rum – mercury in the juice.
