On 12/21/20 Saturn and Jupiter will be only 0.1 degree apart. What does this mean? Well, from an astronomy standpoint, this is the first visible “double planet” in 800 years. So go take a peek at the sky! It will look sort of like an elongated star. Pull out your astronomy apps to find these planets kissing!
From an astrological standpoint, Saturn and Jupiter have a cyclical conjunction that occurs every 20 years. This actually marks the beginnings and ends of historical eras in astrology. This means that we will see old forms/patterns/habits dying off and new growth beginning. Jupiter signifies good fortune and opportunities, while Saturn strengthens and brings order what is ready to ripen and blossom. Together these two combine expansive + imaginative vision with the structure + discipline to actually manifest what we want! Long story short, today is a good day to meditate and get REALLY clear on what you want in life. Write it down. Breathe life into it. Come up with a plan. Execute.
Not only is this a super exciting day for the reasons listed above, but during this cycle of conjunction with Saturn and Jupiter, we are leaving the earth element. Every 200 years there is a shift between elements. This time, we enter air for the next two hundred years. For the next 20 years, we are in the decades of Aquarius. The Aquarian Great Conjunction signifies resilience, liberation, replacing toxic systems with healthier, inclusive, and unifying alternatives (YES PLEASE). Also, entering 200 years of air signs means we will create visionary ideas for the future.
Putting this all together shows that we will be making big shifts starting today. We will have the open minds and vision to think of what we want (no matter how out of reach it may seem!), believe in it (with all your heart), with the structure (make a plan!) to actually make it happen. Big things are coming!

So, what is food therapy?
In Chinese medicine, food has been used for thousands of years as a way to heal the body. All foods have different properties, such as warming, cooling, bitter, pungent, sour, spicy, etc. You can use these properties to your advantage based on your own individual constitution and the time of year! For example, everyone should incorporate these foods into their diets this summer because they help cool the body:
