9781425964566: Dining by the Stars: An Astrology Cookbook

Greetings! There are two interests that are sure to light up my life. Those being a hobby turned avocation, astrology, and stemming from my Old World Latvian roots, an insatiable appetite and interest in international cuisine. Inexplicably and joyfully, they come together in this popular non-fiction genre book, Dining by the Stars, An Astrology Cookbook! This is not a technical book for students of astrology, although the provocative theme of creating recipes from foods generated for each specific zodiac sign, Aries to Pisces, or collectively, according to the elements (of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth) is worthy of more attention in Western astrology. Initially, each zodiac sign has been classified, and listed for the reader are dominant foods and condiments with which it is associated. Each sun-sign's tendencies are then described from five different perspectives: ...the personal habits of the sign ...the sign and love ...the sign and family ...the sign and friends ...and its seasonal celebrations In category by category, you will find recipes created for each sign, foods that would naturally attract it

About the Author:

The moment I stopped working as a public school teacher, essentially in the tri-city Albany, NY, area, my memoir, "Sveika, Amerika, A Displaced Person Remembers" knocked at my door. Only afterwards could I devote my time to astrology counseling, hiking and travel, and more writing.

First translated overseas, the 2nd English ed., with 36 enticing pictures of international recipes, adds information and visuals about the five talented young chefs and their-- also my former--homeland, Riga, Latvia! Prior to retirement, I spent 33 years following my calling, specializing in teaching English and social studies to disadvantaged youth at risk of failing. I was drawn to these youngsters because I knew what it felt like to be an outsider. My former status as a refugee from war-torn Latvia and facing the cultural shock of coming to America at age eight had at a basic level prepared me to view life as a marginal person, one foot in each culture. I wanted to broaden the involvement and good citizenship for my charges. In the process, I felt like an ambassador between the two countries: thus this souvenir book with astrology wisdom! I was enticed to study astrology because of a personal crisis at age 29. By the 70s I had joined the NY State Division for Youth as a trainer of staff. Here I met my astrology mentor, NYC psychiatrist Dr. Eileen Funch, a consultant-trainer of the Race Relations-Human Interaction workshops that I directed for staff in training schools, camps and residential homes of court-placed troubled youth. Dr. Funch, who used astrology with her clients, modeled experiential techniques for the astrology workshops I would present upon retirement. Still looking to improve myself, at age 47 I began practicing Japanese/ Korean martial arts, receiving from two brown belts, one level
