Lunar hair care – New Moon

Principles of lunar hair care give us a structure for timing hair treatments that are compatible with the astrology of the moon.

We use lunar hair care principles just as gardeners consult astrology for growing and harvesting plants with the moon signs and the moon cycle. The Farmer’s Almanac has long been the primary reference for gardening with astrology.

ASTROLOGY MOON PHASES

WAXING MOON – from New to Full.

Our ancestors and folklore tell us that cutting wool from sheep during the waxing moon ensured strong growth for the next cut. Over time this same tried and true principle is applied to human hair care. Cut your hair during the waxing moon if you want to keep it growing fast and long.

WANING MOON – Full Moon to New

Wisdom from country living was passed down by word of mouth over many generations. People learned that certain activities had a predictable result after the full moon when the light decreases or is waning. For instance, woodcutters noticed that when sap moved downward on a tree, it was the best time to cut timber for strength. That’s why you see old buildings that are still standing.

Also after the full moon, farmers recognized that grass grew back more slowly after mowing. We apply that concept to lunar hair care when we want to keep a style short, we cut hair during the waning moon.

LUNAR HAIR CARE – ARIES WANE

The moon is waning this week. So we cut hair to keep a style short.

And May 1-2 the moon is in Aries which is the sign that has the astrological properties to focus on slower growth for hair.

Each astrological sign has classes and categories that are applied to lunar hair care.

Aries is dry, hot and semi-barren. Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign.

Choose the Aries waning moon especially for slower growth after a trim or cut.

These same characteristics of Aries make it a good time to condition hair.

NEW MOON

One of the best dates of the year for New Moon enthusiasts is to get a haircut or trim on May 4 with the Taurus moon.
