Waxing Moon in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Lunar hair care principles for conditioning call for specific astrological signs.
Which astrological signs vary somewhat between sources: some say to apply moisture when the moon is in a fertile or semi-fertile class of sign presumably with the theory of “like begets like” and the property of absorption; however, a greater number of sources vote to add the wetness during barren and semi-barren signs.
Two semi-barren signs stand out for their dry, hot classes with the quality of Fire: Aries and Sagittarius. Next, two barren signs of Gemini (wet, Air) and Leo (dry, Fire) are added. Both are classed as hot. Aquarius is added for classes of semi-barren and hot.
You may wonder, as I did, why not Virgo? While it is in the barren class, its Earth quality leaves it out. Like Scorpio and Capricorn, also disqualified in this planner for conditioning, Virgo is classed as cold. Why not Libra? It is Air like Gemini, but is semi-fertile and already classed with moisture. For conditioning, the emphasis is on the classes of barren and semi-barren, and hot.
All agree that the best phase is the waxing moon for the properties of absorption during the moon cycle.
