Blessed Summer Solstice and Super Moon my friends!
I celebrated with friends and my beloved husband and girlfriend and made Magic Melons punch from Patricia Telesco's The Kitchen Witch's Cookbook with a few variations
Melons were especially popular in Renaissance Europe, carefully carved for the deast table. The fruit was originally introduced from the East through Italy. In the Koran, one of the fruits which will be served to deserving Moslems on the day of judgement is melons.
Magical Attributes: Things coming into abundance, full moon magic, joy.
Celebrations: Birthday of the Moon, harvest festival, Feast of the Milky Way...and now, The Summer Solstice Super Moon!
The recipe (with my variations):
1 half of a seedless watermelon, diced
1 half of a Golden Melon or honeydew melon, diced
1 half of a cantaloupe, diced
1 tablespoon vanilla syrup
a few handfuls of crushed ice
Blend the melons, vanilla syrup, and ice until smooth.
Pour into cups 2/3 full, then fill with ginger ale.
Sipping this melon potion, I collected the things i would need for the super moon -
Aysu - my quartz crystal that has a water energy in her. I will be setting her out to be cleansed and empowered.
A mason jar of clean water to create a super moon potion for later creations.
and a few other selections of stones and crystals for later projects.
I hope you all have a blessed Super Moon!
