Moon gardening can become more detailed in the specific times to plant root or leafy crops, and in further refinement of the semi-barren and semi-fertile signs. But to begin your life of gardening by the moon, begin with this simple technique; and success will be yours.

Rule 1. Make use of the Moon Phase. When the moon is getting bigger, known as waxing, the life force or energy is going into a growing phase. So its time to plant seedlings, apply foliage fertilisers, prune to stimulate growth and any activity where you want growth and foliage and general expansion.

When the moon is getting smaller, known as waning, the life force or energy is going into the roots. Now its time to apply organic manure, plant your roots crops, prune to retard growth, kill weeds and pests, cultivate, and strike plants that need a period of dormancy before they grow.

Rule 2. Find out the Moon Sign. The Moon moves through the zodiac and is in each sign for about 2 or 3 days. Some signs are fertile and some are barren. If the moon is in Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), or Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), it is considered to be fertile. If it is in Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) then its barren.

Just think literally – real earth and water are the ideal place to grow things so they must represent fertile signs. And fire is hot and burns, and air blows the dust around, so they must represent barren signs. But……..see exceptions 1 and 2!

Exception 1. The air sign Libra should be barren, but is really semi fertile. Why; because Libra is concerned with balance and harmony, and plants want to grow and bloom and be beautiful, just like the essential qualities of Librans.

Exception 2. The earth sign Virgo should be fertile – but is actually barren. Why; because Virgo is symbolically the untouched ideal, and very fussy, and being a Virgo I must admit we are a (tiny?) bit critical, so it’s not a good time to plant things. These plants will be selective and hard to please. They find everything just too cold, too hot, too dry, too wet, too……….do you get the idea?

Yours in the Stars

Hello Darlene,

Sorry, but I only give the guide, not the specifics. 🙂

Once you learn how simple it is to work out for yourself then you will always know when to plant. So I suggest you read the article again.

Knowledge is power!

Yours in Moon Gardening
