Feng Shui Daily Tip

Sunday, January 6, 2013

'Beans, beans, they're good for your heart the more you eat the more you --.' Well, you know the rest. In any case, beans are more than just comic fodder for those who enjoy bathroom humor. In fact, beans were a major part of the diets of many of the Mesoamerican cultures, including the Mayan and ancient Aztecs, and they're still a staple throughout Latin and South America. Apollo, the Greek god of prophecy, healing and music was given beans as sacred offerings, while on one particularly special occasion the Egyptian king Ramses III offered 11,000 jars of shelled beans to the deities. In more modern days, some Hindu traditions continue to offer white beans to their goddesses while in the United States, Boston enjoys an entire baked bean dish named after it. On this 'Bean Day' it's good to note that beans can be added to any diet to increase longevity, and according to ages-old lore, they can fatten up your bank account when eaten with that exact intent. So, beans may be good for the heart, but they're also great for attracting money and keeping you healthy and happy. And that's no joke!

How deliciously fun...I live in the desert...so if this printing holds water, our crops shall be abundant, our livestock shall thirst no more and our mountains will burst with sublime color.

Still wondering what happened to the daily astrology newsletter that hasn't come in my inbox in a few weeks now. Anyone else know what is going on with that? I miss my daily astrology for Virgo
