Planting by the Signs: Moon in light phase; killing sign today – fertile signs to come

By Philip Case, Published:

For those interested, here’s information about the phases of the moon and signs of the zodiac through the end of the month – and year.

The moon is in the light phase now and will continue there until the full moon on Friday, Dec. 28 at 5:21 a.m. Until then be involved in only light-moon activities.

The dark moon then rules until the first new moon of the new year on Jan. 11 at 2:44 p.m. This period will be one for dark-moon activities.

A look at the signs reveals the sign today is in Aries (the head), one of the killing signs. Don’t be foolin’ around with living plants you’re interested in thriving. This is not the day for it but the very fertile sign Taurus (the neck) comes into force Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with the moon in the light phase.

Wednesday and Thursday find the sign in Gemini (the arms), the bean sign. Won’t be long before we’ll be talking about planting some very early peas, but beans aren’t on the radar for four months or so, unfortunately.

The very fertile sign Cancer (the breast) comes to rule on Friday and Saturday with the month and year concluding next Sunday and Monday, Dec. 30-31, with Leo (the heart) in force. Thus the month ends with two very fertile days followed by two very killing days!

Then it’s on to 2013.
