Lunar Hair Tip #5 – Thicker Hair

 

Just about every source in the history of lunar hair cutting agrees that the Full Moon is the best phase for seeing thicker growth after a cut or trim.

Lunar Hair Tip #5 - Thicker Hair

I like to refine that notion to include the two days before and after the Full Moon because that is the most concentrated window of time when the Moon travels through Earth’s magnetotail. If you are sensitive to the Moon’s magnetic qualities like I am, you will know what I mean. If not, that’s okay, NASA figured it out for us.

Folklore says to choose any Full Moon for this treatment. It is my experience that it is wise to skip Virgo, Cancer and Pisces. Virgo is barren and better suited for haircuts during the waning moon. Cancer and Pisces are both excluded with the ongoing Pisces-Cancer Debate. I have to say that Libra is wet and hot and would also not be my first choice.

On all the other days of the moon cycle other than the Full Moon, the focus is on specific astrological signs for the goal of thicker hair after a haircut or trim. The recommended signs in order of popularity and importance for lunar hair cutting are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn.

Taurus and Capricorn are semi-fertile; Scorpio has the class of fertile.

Taurus, Leo, and Capricorn are all dry.

Taurus, Capricorn and Scorpio are cold.

Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio are Fixed.

Leo, a popular sign for haircuts and thicker growth (think lion’s mane) is curious in this category because it is barren and hot, and so unlike the astrological qualities of the other signs. European folklore from the year 1748 has a published almanac about cutting hair at the Leo moon as the common practice. We accept the votes from folklore and history as valid, even with a little mystery. Write to me or comment if you have further insight.

Choose both a Full Moon and a recommended astrological sign for maximum impact. A Taurus full moon. A Leo full moon. A Scorpio full moon. A Capricorn full moon.

Did you miss it this month? That’s okay, grab your astrology calendar and choose future dates with the next Full Moons and astrological signs. It’s also a good practice to look ahead for the whole year to see how many dates will be available. If you need more help, all of the dates are calculated for easy reference in Lunar Hair 2017.

Full Moon Coming June 9 Friday

The Full Moon on Friday June 9 shows its full light to us. We are now exactly opposite the New Moon. The Sun and Moon are farthest apart in the cycle.

Full Moon June 9, 2017 Friday

This means facing the full light of what was started at the New Moon. For good or ill, it is now time to size up the situation just as it is.

Actively pursue some type of finish to a project or issue, which could be one step in a larger plan. Declare a completion for now.

Take a few moments to look in the sky at the Full Moon.

Accept current results, without too much criticism, no matter what it is:

• Positive result: If there was a sincere attitude developed since the New Moon, and the challenge was faced and figured out, then the Full Moon brings a sense of resolve and determination.

• Negative result: If you ignored the bumpy issue, which happens to all of us at some point, then expect a mental conflict and perhaps a stalled project. The cycle moves on and it’s okay.

• Neutral result: If you haven’t the least idea of what this means, for either positive or negative, then look forward to working with the cycle to find out. The cycle works as a whole unit with necessary preparation time, goal-setting, visioning and execution – all in their proper phase. There is a chance to start again – especially now, at the Full Moon to prepare for the next round of the cycle.

Pull back a little after the immense effort of putting your mark upon the world and loosen up. Have a good laugh at all of the flapping around you have done in the last weeks to change the world. You may have changed a little, too.
