Planet: Moon

Element: Water

Energies: Weight loss

Lore:

Seaweed (more correctly, sea vegetables) are surprisingly nutritious foods that are rarely found in Western diets, except as processed food
additives (such as carrageenan). In Cornwall, pieces of a seaweed known as Lady’s Tresses were placed on small stands near the chimney to guard seaside cottages against fire.

Seaweed is eaten throughout the year by the Japanese, who also serve it on their lunar New Year for happiness.

Magical uses:

Add seaweed to your diet if you wish to lose weight. Seaweed has been prescribed for this purpose since ancient times. Dried kelp (a generic
term for seaweed) is available in all health-food stores.
