Planting by the Signs: Moon in light phase until June 4

By Philip Case Published:


If you’re planting your garden according to the phases of the moon and signs of the zodiac, here’s the information for this week.

The moon is in the light phase now and will remain there until Monday, June 4 when the next full moon is scheduled to appear. Through this period be planting only above-ground producers.

According to the signs of the zodiac, this is the last of a three-day stretch ruled by the killing sign Leo (the heart). As hard as it is, try not to plant today.

Beginning on Memorial Day tomorrow and continuing for the rest of May we find a series of flowering signs in force just in time to start, finish or augment your summer flower planting. With the moon in the light phase, the sign is in first Virgo (the bowels) Monday and Tuesday followed by Libra (the reins) on Wednesday and Thursday.

 Lots and lots of “bloom days!”

And then comes June, which opens with three straight Scorpio days (the secrets),  June 1-3, with the light moon in force. Fantastic days for above-ground producers.

June, in fact, as a ton of very fertile days. But more on that next week.
