Moon Gardening – The Harvest Moon

Moon in Leo

Fire sign Leo is barren and dry. Bestowed with the honour of being the driest, least fecund sign of all, it is said to be the most successful for the purging of pests and disease and destroying old trees and remnant roots – especially when the moon is in its waning phase. It is also recommended as being a good sign to mow lawns to slow regrowth. Because it is so dry, it’s a good sign to harvest fruit and root vegetables.

  1. Hi Michelle – Love the articles!

  2. Love that there is a lunar time for purging, a season for all action, but trust that not too many old trees make the cut.

    I’m enjoying the articles too!
