Wondering what to eat in Scorpio season? I've got 100 recipes to get you started. It's time to get cozy but make it sensual.
Scorpio season has a bit of a mysterious energy to it. With Halloween or Samhain soon approaching, the veil is thin. Ghosts may be lingering, the memories of our ancestors are fresh in our minds, and the days are growing noticably darker. The Earth is quieting down, letting the leaves fall away and entering a deep rest.
That means we're allowed to rest as well. Let the hard work of the harvest settle and enjoy what we've cultivated throughout the year. Our food becomes more cozy and warming. You may wanto to work spells for protection and peace in your kitchen. There's 100 recipes here that correspond to Scorpio, Mars, and water energy, plus a nod to what's growing right now. I hope you find something awesome.
Scorpio Season Foods
The first thing I noticed about Scorpio season foods is that they're all red. I think of Scorpio energy as passionate, intense, and deep. It's a time for shadow work and transformation. In addition to the pomegranates, strawberries, and dark chocolate, paprika also made the list. This spice, especially the smoked variety, is perfect for a big pot of chili. Maybe that's what I'll make for my Samhain feast this year.
Pomegranates are the perfect fruit for helping us reach beyond the veil and see the beauty in the dark half of the year. They juice is also beautiful in cocktails.
Strawberries can help you connect to the sensual side of Scorpio energy. Use them to call in love and intimacy to find that deep connection you've been yearning for.
Scorpio rules over dark chocolate specifically. Use it to bring that scorpion intensity to your spellwork this season.
Mars foods are fiery with strong masculine energy. We've got quite a list below, and you can also add coriander and turmeric to that list. Scorpio is a water sign, but it's energy is quite intense. A bit of fire seems appropriate.
Beer is dedicated to Mars, which seems very manly to me. I don't drink beer myself, but I do love to cook and bake with it. Try this Whole Wheat Guinness Soda Bread with your autumn stew.
Chives are great for breaking bad habits and blocking negative energy. You can sprinkle them over so many dishes for a pop of green. Try them on this Hummus & Egg Toast with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Chives.
Black pepper has strong protective qualities, which is convenient as it's added to most savoury dishes. Sprinkle a bit of protection on these recipes:
Tiny little mustard seeds pack a big punch both in flavor and metaphysical properties. They're good for protection, clarity, and fertility. Add it as a condiment or work it into your salad dressings.
Little pine nuts can help us bring the cleansing power of pine into our bodies, not to mention the growth potential of seeds. I like to spinkle mine on bread and toast.
Of course bananas have Mars energy. They bring resilience, wealth, and luck in addition to the other obvious properties.
Carrots have the same obvious connotations. They can also be used in spells for creativity, clarity, and grounding.
Onions definitely have a fiery strength. That can be used for protection, passion, and fertility. They form the base of many recipes, but here are a couple of ways to really celebrate the onion.
With it's sudden burst of energy, coffee is a Mars ingredient. If you've been here before, you know I don't drink it. I do love Kahlua, though.
Cranberries are tied to Mars, but they're also properly in season now. Call on them for abundance, love, and communication.
Mint brings a bit of Mars fire, but it also brings virility, resilience, and prosperity. Not to mention beautiful flavor.
Cinnamon is the scent of the season. Use it to call in abundance or speed up spells. Add it to love spells are incorporate it into home protection.
Chilies like jalapenos and habaneros carry fiery Mars energy. Send them into battle to clear any obstacles between you and your intention.
I always forget that Scorpio is a water sign. I see it as a deep, still pool full of magical potential. These water foods will help you connect to the more sensual side of Scorpio energy and help you bring your emotions to the surface.
It makes perfect sense that coconuts correspond with water given that they're full of it. Enjoy this energy in some Coconut Basmati Rice.
Rose energy can help you connect with softer emotions like love and compassion. Try creating a little self-love spell with this Rose Quartz Cocktail.
Cucumber is also full of water, but it also carries the energy of beauty, fertility, and healing.
Butter is great for spells of transformation. Of course, it forms the base of most baked goods, but it's got a beautiful flavor all its own. Here are a few recipes to help you celebrate it.
Honey can help you tap into bee energy. Bees are said to be able to cross between world and carry messages from the dead.
Rum brings prosperity, clarity, love, and strength. It's also made from sugar cane, so you can use it for a bit of added attraction on your altar.
I love the delicate leaves and gentle aroma of thyme. Use it to call in strength, courage, and wisdom.
Cherries are also great for love and romance. You can also use them for vitality and new beginnings.
Despite it's name, passion fruit is actually best for sleep spells. It's got a lovely calming, tranquil energy.
Raspberries are great for protection and fertility. Turn to frozen berries this time of year to be more sustainable.
Lettuce certainly holds on to water, but it's not exactly sexy. Maybe that's why it's associated with chastity and sleep.
Vanilla is another deeply sensual ingredient found in many recipes. I happen to love its flavor. It can also create a sense of coziness as the weather turns cold.
Limes, like all citrus fruits, have cleansing properties. Their green color also makes them useful for prosperity spells.
- Vodka Lime Slush
- Lime Ginger & Lemongrass Infused Water
- Flourless Chocolate Lime Cake with Margarita Cream
Lemons always make me feel sunny, something Scorpio season can't really promise in this part of the world. Call on this fruit to cleanse away any gloomy moods from the chilly weather.
