Some days, you just gotta look around at your fridge, see what you got, and make, well, magic.

In this case, though, I noticed I had a couple lemons, three tomatoes on their way out, and plenty of fresh basil out in the garden, and I thought to myself, "surely I can do something with that quick." A trip to the grocery store later for some pasta and chicken and spinach, and I had myself a delicious bit of lemon basil pasta for dinner with plenty of leftovers. I always plant so many herbs in the garden, just to forget to use them, but today was a good reminder of the fact that I actually have enough basil to warrant maybe trying a little harder to use it. My first two times growing basil, I didn't have nearly this level of success, so this is pretty damn good.

And best of all?

The money magic in this is some that works by virtue of your relationships with others. With the lemon here mixing with basil, spinach, and onion, we have ourselves a great match up. Let's get into it!

Magic in Lemon Basil Pasta

Now, as I said, that lemon? That's not an odd man out; that's the tone marker of the magic we're putting into this dish. Lemons, which are fantastic for friendship, purification, and energy, will help you get the clean, efficient teamwork you're looking for when trying to make your projects take off. After all, money isn't made in a vacuum, and rarely does it just happen on its own out of nowhere; you need to foster that kind of success with others, which is exactly why lemon paired with things like onion, basil, and spinach is so powerful in money magic.

When it comes to prosperity, we'd do well to remember: it's not just about the money, but the way we make it, that counts. That's why this dish not only brings those classic money-attracting elements to it—the Mars factor, the fire, for ambition and passion and creativity—but also the the collaborative qualities of the Moon and water. That way, when you go to gain your wealth, you know it's coming from a place of teamwork, friendship, and goodwill: the kind of wealth everyone can feel good about and celebrate.
