Planting by the Signs: Moon is in light phase, killing signs in force early this week

By Philip Case Published:

For those of you doing anything according to the phases of the moon and signs of the zodiac, here’s the information for the week ahead.

The moon is in the light phase now and will continue there until the full moon at 9:46 a.m. Wednesday. Until then proceed with only light moon activities and then after Wednesday only dark moon ones until the new moon in December.

A look at the signs finds today and Monday under the influence of Aries (the head), one of the two killing signs. Reserve these signs for killing or deadening, not planting.

Fertile planting is on tap for Tuesday and Wednesday when the sign moves to Taurus (the neck). Tuesday finds the light moon in force while the phase changes to dark moon on Wednesday.

Gemini (the arms) wraps up November on Thursday and Friday. This, of course, is the bean sign but there isn’t much bean related going on right now.

December begins Saturday – can you believe it! – with the moon in the dark phase and the sign in Cancer (the breast) Saturday and next Sunday. This is one of the most fertile signs.

Then comes Leo (the heart), the other killing sign, on Dec. 3 and 4. Like the Aries days that begin this week, no planting related activities HOW TO BE IN TOUCH
