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.

May 4 – 10, 2016 Lunar Hair Chart New Moon Week with Taurus

posted in: Lunar Hair Care | 0

 

The New Moon focus for lunar hair care is to see the fastest growth after a haircut or trim. The day of the New Moon through the following week are the best days of the moon phase.

Add a compatible astrological sign for optimum results. A sign with the class of fertile or semi-fertile that is cold wins out for this category. The elements are either Earth or Water.

The May 6 New Moon in Taurus has all of the qualities for this category: Earth, cold and semi-fertile.

Lunar Hair Chart for April 6-12, 2016 with Aries and Taurus

posted in: Lunar Hair Care | 0

 

Do you like to keep your hair short? Lunar hair care principles hold that the Aries moon has excellent compatibility for this goal.

Aries has a class of Semi-barren. April 6 Wednesday the moon is in Aries and there are two more bonuses for this day! First, it is the last day of the waning moon which is another plus for the goal of shorter styles lasting longer. Second, the Moon conjunct Venus and trine Mars add a positive tone for good choices and a pleasant experience.

Aries is a Fire sign. Just like we add lotion to dry skin, when the moon travels through Dry and Fiery Aries the lunar hair care advice is to do a conditioning treatment.

Just a few days later the moon changes the phase to waxing after the New Moon. If you are a New Moon enthusiast, wait until April 8 when the moon moves to the sign of Taurus. Taurus has a class of Cold to put it in the lunar hair care category for faster growth. The close proximity to the New Moon bumps this class to a rating of Best.

The April 11 Gemini moon is rated Best for conditioning. Gemini’s element of Air and classes of Barren/Hot makes it a good candidate for conditioning. The waxing moon makes it a plus for absorption.
