Now, I think everyone has at least heard of that adorable film, Ratatouille. It's the perfect name for a movie about a rat chef, and it's the perfect dish to bring an otherwise bitter, high-and-mighty food critic back down to earth through his inner child. It's one of the sweetest moments of the movie for me: when Ego takes a bite of that (beautifully plated and presented) Ratatouille and zips right back into his childhood memories, where his mother comforts a scraped up young boy with a bowl of hearty, flavorful stew.

As you might guess, this being a summer stew means that it's using a lot of summer vegetables: summer squashes and zucchini, eggplant and tomato, and plenty of fresh herbs. It's a fully vegan meal from start to finish as a result, but if you'd like to add some meat to it, I'd suggest throwing in some Italian-flavored sausages, especially chicken ones (the chew of them goes better with the otherwise soft vegetables in the stew, in my opinion).

But if you're going to make a one-pot meal for psychic and spiritual power, intuition, and connection with the spirit world, this is your jam—especially with eggplant, bay leaves, thyme, and parsley in the mix.

Once again, we're looking at some beautiful purple foods (as we will pretty much all month). There are so many beautiful purple variants of things, like purple basil you can include in here—but what tops the classic, full-bodied eggplant? Being so abundant, with great fuzzy flowers and a rich, deep purple color, I can only pin this beautiful nightshade as something associated with Jupiter and fire, with royalty, wisdom, psychic power, and glory. Combine that with the Roman funeral herb parsley and Greek oracle herb bay leaf, as well as thyme, and you've got some real interesting energy blended here.

The element of air is the element of communication, travel, intellect, and technology. Mercury, likewise, is the planet named after the messenger of the gods, meaning that, along with the influences of Jupiter, the sun, and Venus, and the elements fire and water, you'll have quite the boost to your luck, communicative skill, luck, strength, and diplomatic skill—a perfect blend for getting in touch with the spirit world, divining messages, and acting as that bridge between the living and the dead, if that's what you're interested in (especially in relation to ancestral spirits).
