Lyrids Meteor Shower Magick 🌠

The Lyrids is a meteor shower that takes place from April 16th to April 26th of this year, with its peak being around April 22nd. The Lyrids meteor shower is named for the constellation Lyra, with it’s radiant point originating from the constellation’s brightest star, Alpha Lyrae, otherwise known as Vega. 

Magickal workings that would be appropriate to perform during the Lyrids meteor shower include those having to do with:

  • The underworld
  • Enchantment 
  • Immortality of the soul
  • Music 
  • Love

It is said that the first lyre ever made was given to Orpheus by Hermes as a bargain. The music produced by this lyre was so great that even inanimate objects could be charmed by it. 

“At one point, Orpheus married Eurydice, a nymph. While fleeing from an attack by Aristaeus, she stepped on a snake that bit her, killing her. To reclaim her, Orpheus entered the Underworld, where the music from his lyre charmed Hades. Hades relented and let Orpheus bring Eurydice back, on the condition that he never once look back until outside. Unfortunately, near the very end, Orpheus faltered and looked back, causing Eurydice to be left in the Underworld forever. Orpheus spent the rest of his life strumming his lyre while wandering aimlessly through the land, rejecting all marriage offers from women.”

Hey Tumblr!
I’ve been really (not) busy and avoiding my blog, but I’m back at you with my vegan version of the Famoso Blackberry Salad.

I used a spinach bokchoy baby greens blend as a base and added
Raspberry
Blackberry
Maple Nuts from Prana
Mint leaves ripped into quarter

Dressing
½ balsamic vinegar
½ olive oil
Generous splash of litchee juice

I don’t make my food at home often enough. But when a great salad whips up this quick, why not!

‘THE (almost) EIFFEL TOWER OF PANCAKES’

1 ripe mashed banana
120ml unsweetened rice milk
 2tbsp maple syrup
1tbsp melted coconut oil
65g buckwheat flour
1tbsp @purplebalance omega protein
1/4tsp bourbon vanilla (optional but adds a more vanilla taste)
baking soda (at the tip of a knife)

125g fresh blueberries (in the pancakes & for decoration)
1tsp coconut cream
maple syrup
a few mint leafs   for decoration

In a small bowl mix the mashed nana , rice milk , maple syrup and coconut oil. Whisk until well combined. In a small jar mix the flour , protein powder , bourbon vanilla powder and baking soda. Shake well a few times and slowly start adding to the mixed wet ingredients while whisking. The mixture should be sort-of-thick but still pourable. Pre-heat the pan and pour a tbsp of the mixture onto it , add fresh blueberries in the pancake and wait until the edges start drying / bubbles start to form. Flip the pancake and leave cooking for another minute or so. Repeat until you run out of pancake dough. Stack ‘em high , add your toppings (snap a pic and tag both @pearsnpancakes @purplebalance IN the pic) and enjoy while the pancakes are still warm.
