trims

I compiled the following chart for the year of 2004 from scratch to record the ultimate dates and timings for trimming to promote healthy fast growth during that year. If anyone would like to see a new chart for the current year please let me know as it is something I will only create if there's a true audience for it!! Alternatively search Google for "lunar hair calendar" to find other more basic guides which don't include times of the day. Cutting when the Moon is in one of the Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) is best favoured followed by Taurus and Capricorn.

Timings indicate when the Moon has aspects to one of the planets. These are the best times to take positive action. When the moon is Void of Course (v/c) She is not aspecting any of the planets, and actions initiated during v/c moons are believed to amount to nothing, or to failure. Also the time to cut is when the light is increasing - the waxing moon is used when we wish to draw favourable energy for our benefit, such as farmers used in traditional agriculture long ago. I use the waxing and waning phases of the moon in many of my workings.
I also consult my almanac for details of the Lunar aspects for each day as some days might not be quite so favourable after all depending on the type of aspect to whichever planet, but this is far too much detail to put on my chart!

As a guide you trim your hair between the 'date/time from' and 'date/time to' and if you wish for more of a time period you can still cut your hair up until the date/time listed under 'v/c until' - I prefer not to, but many charts list this time period as being beneficial simply because the moon is still in that sign, just not aspecting any planet and is 'void of course'. Finally don't forget to give thanks to Her as you are trimming!
Please note the following times are in GMT - add one hour during BST (I'll add a page to calculate time conversion)

Also PLEASE NOTE!!!! THIS IS FOR 2004 AND NOT CURRENT!
it is for your information, to see what I was doing back in 2004
