Waxing Scorpio: 3-Moon Days

I’ve come up with a rating system for planting days using Moons. Today and most of tomorrow (May 24th and 25th) are 3-Moon days. It doesn’t get any better than that.

The water signs ~ Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces ~ are the most fertile planting days of the lunar garden calendar. They’re all 3-Moon days. 2-Moon days are Taurus and Capricorn. 1-Moon days are Virgo and Libra.

The barren signs ~ Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini and Virgo ~ get no moons because they’re not good for planting. They’re better used for other gardening activities.

The Moon is waxing in Scorpio through 5:05pm (EDT) May 24th. This is a fantastic time to do some late spring planting of annuals. I’ve got several packets of flower seeds that I haven’t gotten around to planting yet. Today’s the day! We were blessed with a nice rain during the night, so the ground is able and more than willing to embrace the seeds.

From the lunar eclipse tonight.There is a Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius on Saturday. I’d advise even those who can only garden on weekends to avoid planting this Saturday or Sunday for two reasons. 1) Sagittarius is a barren sign, and 2) I don’t like to plant on either the New or Full Moon.

Late Sunday evening is okay, after 5:30pm. At that time, the Moon moves into Capricorn for a couple of days. Capricorn gets 2 Moons. Since the Moon will be in its waning phase, turn your attention to perennials and biennials.

The next 3-Moon days for perennials and biennials are May 30th from 8:31pm until June 2nd, 2:33pm when the Moon wanes in Pisces.
