Here’s this week’s information regarding the phases of the moon and signs of the zodiac for any planting, transplanting or other activities you are involved in.
The moon continues in the light phase until Friday when the full moon, called the Hunter’s Moon, comes into force at 7:38 p.m.
If it’s a clear Saturday night you might want to consider joining Julia Rome and Josh Downs for a “Full Moon Walk” 7:30-9 p.m. at Fort Hill Park. The walk is for those ages 4 and older. The moon should be gorgeous as it seems to hang so low and large in the autumn sky.
Through Thursday continue with light moon activities, then beginning Saturday and until the new moon at 7:50 a.m. Nov. 3 (the day Daylight Savings Time ends) only things suited for when the dark moon rules.
A look at the signs reveals today and Monday are both ruled by Aquarius (the legs). These days are the final days in our monthly series of so-so signs.
Tuesday through Thursday find the sign moving to Pisces (the feet) with the moon still in the light phase. Pisces is one of the four most fertile signs so anything planted on these days should do fine.
Although the moon is in the light phase, today through Thursday are the days most propitious this month for making changes since the signs are going out of the body past anything that functions. We aren’t going to have any perfect days for change making for several months, those when the signs are going out of the body past anything that functions and the moon is in the dark phase.
All planting or dealing with things you’re wanting to thrive should end Friday and Saturday when the sign moves to Aries (the head), one of the two killing signs. Finish clean-up work in your garden on these days with the moon in the dark phase a little of Friday and all of Saturday.
The fertile sign Taurus (the neck) comes into force next Sunday and continues through Oct. 22.
