Astrological Cook with Joan Porte
Joan started “playing” with Astrology when she was in grammar school. She always had a fixation with the planets – Pluto being her favorite (surprise she is Scorpio Sun!) Yes, Pluto is still a planet to her! She put her astrology “toys” away when she grew up and went into the “real world,” sadly convinced that it was time to do more important things. The universe and her North Node in Sagittarius woke her up in her mid-thirties after which she began an intensive study of Western astrology.
According to Joan, “Modern Man takes for granted the Sun and how its energy propels and sustains life. Moon energy controls the tides yet we ignore the other more personal influences it has on our bodies and lives. We have lost the art of appreciating and reading the stars as messengers from the god and goddess. Humanity has disconnected from its source
and consequently suffers emotionally, spiritually and physically.”
“Each person is born with a map – a soul map – that is his or her astrological chart. It is a map through the maze of life that shows the karma we need to balance our soul’s desire for a life that leads to enhanced soul growth. I simply read the map – illustrating where you have been and where you are going to make your journey through life less bumpy.” With this cook book Joan is combining her astrological knowledge with her lifelong love of cooking in her own inimitable way.
She is the author of the blog Karmic Astrology.
Her other book is Fortyish: Lessons For the Ages From a Baby Boomer.
