Assaggiando le erbe fresche

 

Assaggiando le erbe fresche, si può riuscire a cogliere meglio le loro qualità: non solo il sapore e l’aroma, ma le loro qualità inerenti. “Quando viene assaggiata, viene anche assimilata e in quel momento si comincia ad avere la conoscenza dell’erba. E non si può ottenere altrettanto dalle erbe secche. Bisogna davvero masticarle!”. Quanto più si capisce un’erba, tanto più risulta facile usarla nella pratica.
(tratto e liberamente tradotto da “The Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm“, di Peg Schafer)

[NdT “chew on something”, in inglese, significa tanto “masticare qualcosa” quanto “meditare su qualcosa”]

Alleanza Verde

Oggi, 21 Marzo 2019, è il primo giorno di Primavera nel Regno della Natura. Il Sole è da pochissimo entrato nel segno dell’Ariete e la Luna, piena alle ore 2:45 di oggi e al perigeo (infatti è una Superluna), si trova nel segno della Vergine.

È un giorno di rinascita nel quale tutta la Natura celebra il risveglio alla vita dopo il periodo trascorso nel buio e nel nascondimento dell’Inverno. È il tempo dell’impeto, della spinta al movimento; è il momento in cui ricomincia il ciclo della vita.

Green Alliance

Today, March 21st, 2019, is the first day of Spring in the Realm of Nature. The Sun has just entered the sign of Aries and the Moon, full at 2:45 AM and at perigee (reason why it’s called a Supermoon), is in the sign of Virgo.

It’s a day of rebirth in which all Nature celebrates the reawakening to life after the Winter period spent in the dark and in the concealment. It’s the time of impetus, of the push to movement; it’s the moment when the life cycle starts again.

The plant sprouts, waking up, pierce the surface of the Earth as if they were little swords. This, so to say, green allusion to the metallic swords is bivalent. On one side, the swords are mythologically related to Mars, god of war, but also of youthness and impetus, from which the month of March gets its name (Martius mensis, in Latin, Mars’ month). On the other side, swords are made of Iron, a metal that is martial (again) in nature and that we can find, organicated, in our blood, as the metallic core of hemoglobin, a protein that has the task of transporting oxygen, a substance that “pushes” us to both external and internal (metabolism) movement and that allows us more generally to move toward a place or with a purpose. We can say that are able to move in the direction of our Divine Purpose of our life only thanks to Iron.

The planet Mars is the Lord of the sign of Aries that starts this month, and the first ten days of the sign belong to the Red Planet.

On this day, so replete of signs and significance, Alleanza Verde (Green Alliance) is born: it is a portal dedicated to the Alliance between the Race of Man and the Green People, made up of the countless vegetal beings, an alliance stipulated millions of years ago, when our very first human ancestors appeared on the Earth.

Plants are our travel companions. They prepared a house for us well before we began dwelling this world. We can say without a doubt that mankind co-evolved with them and so our bodies profoundly “know” what plants are, and profoundly know their being food and medicine since time immemorial.
