In anticipation of the publication of my cookbook, "Signs of the Tines: The Ultimate Astrological Cookbook," I have asked the question that I am sure has been bugging Americans for a century or more. "What would Abe Lincoln eat?" Our 16th President was not known as a "foodie." Although he did have a pretty decent appetite for country fare when a youth, as he grew older and a more preoccupied with life he often was seen munching mindlessly on an apple.
With his Capricorn Moon and Saturn on the cusp of his first house coupled with Pisces on the cusp of his 6th or health house, the President had almost a classic signature for a depressive personality. Saturn (which rules Capricorn) is something that always places restrictions, limits growth and can be a bit of a downer when near our personal planets and houses - like the first house and the Moon. Pisces is on the 6th should always send off alarm bells because it can bring the desire to escape due to a feeling overburdened and overwhelmed.
What would I recommend for Mr. Lincoln? My blueberry polenta - made with lots of creamy goodness to remind provide him with a comforting warm feeling and healthy berries and my salmon in parchment, he needed those Omega 3s for depression.
The recipes are - where else - in the book due out in May of 2013!
