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.

Lunar Hair Tip #4 – Condition

Lunar hair care principles for conditioning call for specific astrological signs.

Lunar Hair Tip #4 - Condition Hair

Not everyone agrees exactly on when to condition hair with a lunar hair chart. 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” with the property of absorption. However, many more experts on lunar hair care 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.

The 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. Virgo is also classes as cold which does not fit with the other hot astrological signs.

Why not Libra? It is Air like Gemini, but is semi-fertile and already classed with moisture. Libra does not offer the required qualities of the other signs.

One thing that all agree on for lunar hair care is that the best phase is the waxing moon as the right time of the moon cycle to condition hair.

Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius are the qualified astrological signs to choose during the waxing moon for conditioning hair.

Specific dates for conditioning hair with these signs are in the Lunar Hair 2017 book on Amazon.
