Leo Moon in the garden

Like all other Fire Signs in the garden Leo is considered too dry and barren for growing anything. Its energy is suitable for cultivating, general maintenance and harvesting. Also suitable for pest control, weeding, and pruning, best done after the Last Quarter Phase.

Today the energy could be right for being creative in the garden: painting, sculpting, playing music, performing garden plays, landscaping, designing, introducing decorative features and ornamental objects.
Of course also Garden Parties. Or, weather permitting, just basking in the sun, preferably in a hammock or really comfy easy chair.

This Moon Phase in the garden

The First Quarter Moon Phase is the demarcation time between the first and second weeks of the Moon cycle, an important boundary, because different types of plants can now go in, those we grow for their fruit or seedpods (tomatoes, beans etc.). The Moon needs also to be transiting a Fertile or Productive Sign.

  • Note that the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.
