Updated: Apr 7

Between Lent and Aries season, it's time to harness some solid moon energy.

Now, if the new moon was a time to plant our intentions, you know that the full moon in Libra is a time to harvest them—and given Libra is all about justice, fairness, and balance, it's also time to get ourselves realigned and situated for the coming spring and summer.


Of course, you still gotta have dinner on a full moon night. And what better way to harvest all that psychic goodness than with a seriously moon-charged meal?


This week, with only one Lenten Friday left (Good Friday, of all things), where many Christians are reflecting on the things that put Jesus on that cross—corrupt and evil empires, conflicting interests, religious zeal, a fear for one's people, and flagrant disregard for human life by virtue of where they were born—it's the perfect time to prepare with a solid fish recipe. Whether you have this now and really steep in that spirit of justice as you reflect on the time of year, or you make this on Good Friday and maybe save yourself a little moon-charged lemon juice and yogurt for the final components, this here? This is a great meal.


We're looking at yogurt, asparagus, lemon, and white fish (cod, halibut, tilapia, etc.) for this meal, so let's get started.

Magic in Baked Fish

One of the biggest focuses of full moon magic is the idea of taking in further psychic power. As a result, they're good times to recharge your crystals, cleanse your tarot cards and other tools, and engage in some self care as you take stock of all the work you've done since the last new moon. Whether you had a goal for the Libra New Moon back in October that you're coming to realize now, or you simply wanted to recharge to keep making headway on your Pisces new moon goals, this is a time to ask yourself a few things:


  • Are you being fair to yourself?

  • Are you being fair to others?

  • How can you embody a spirit of justice and peace in your daily life?

  • What do you need to feel empowered and sure of judgement?


In that regard, here, we combine the elements of water, earth, and fire with the planetary correspondences of the moon and Jupiter. This'll remind us to really soak in the full moon energy and make use of the four main ingredients that are going to help you out. For this meal, I used tilapia, which, in ancient Egypt, was apparently a symbol of fertility and regeneration—and Christian scholars believe it was this type of fish that Jesus made into so many pieces to feed people. Combine that with the purifying powers of lemon, the psychic enhancing powers of asparagus, and the spiritual, creative energies of dairy like yogurt, and this is a meal that brings us perfectly in line with Lent and a sense of deepened spiritual commitments to seeing justice done in the world.


Baked Fish and Asparagus


Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Makes 2-3 servings


Ingredients:

  • 16oz tilapia

  • 12oz asparagus

  • 1 lemon, half sliced & half saved for 2-3 wedges

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 4 cloves of garlic, mnced

  • 3-4 potatoes, peeled

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

  • Breadcrumb seasoning (1/2 Tbsp each of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, & a generous pinch of salt)

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

  • 2 Tbsp sweet relish or sweet pickles

  • 1 Tbsp mustard

  • 1/2 tsp dried dill


Directions:

  1. Dice and fry your onions until translucent, meanwhile chopping off the last 2-3 inches of your washed asparagus and setting aside.

  2. While onion fries, peel and dice your potatoes, then add to a pot of salted water and boil until fork tender.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. When onion is done, add garlic, frying until fragrant, and add asparagus, making sure all stalks touch the pan, stirring occasionally.

  5. Halfway through cooking the asparagus, add a few slices of lemon to the pan and stir occasionally.

  6. Crack 3 eggs into one pan, prepare your breadcrumbs on a separate pan, and then get a third pan for your fish.

  7. Dredge the fish in egg, then breadcrumb, then set aside. When all are breaded, bake for 10min at 400, then remove and flip, then return to the oven for another 5-7 minutes (or until fish is flaky and opaque).

  8. Combine yogurt, mustard, relish or pickles, and dill in a bowl.

  9. When everything is done, plate up and drizzle your yogurt tartar over potatoes and fish. Squeeze lemon over the fish and serve hot.


Even my boyfriend, who isn't much of a fan of white fish, loved this dish. It's flavorful, filling as all ever, and full of incredible benefits that'll also help your body physically feel better—which is important when you're trying to do good magic! So definitely get this on the roster, especially if you happen to have a coupon for fish this week. ♥
