Aries Moon in the garden

  • The following are the Edible Plants, Herbs, Tees and Flowers since ancient times associated with Aries, and also with Mars, Aries’ traditional Ruler, the archetypal god of action, assertion and conflicts. So, for instance, plants with thorns and prickles that they use as weapons against predators. Or plants with hot or acrid or sharp taste etc.

In the garden Fiery Aries is traditionally considered too hot, dry and barren for growing anything. Its energy is very suitable instead for cultivating, general maintenance and harvesting, throughout the cycle, as well as pruning, pest control and weeding, best done after the Last Quarter.
Plants sown with the Moon in Aries will soon go to seed, due to this Sign’s notorious impatience. Suitable only for early crops.

Edible Plants: Thorny Berry Bushes, like Barberry, Onions, Peppers, Garlic, Radishes, Capers.

Healing Herbs: Some of the medicinal herbs associated with Aries are anti-inflammatory, or are used to reduce fevers o heal wounds. Some others can be used to treat headaches and migraines; or ease muscles pain and help in the healing of sports injures.

This Moon Phase in the garden

  • 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.

The Balsamic Moon Phase is certainly no time for planting or sowing, but it is ideal instead for cultivation and soil conditioning, slow release fertilizing, composting, mulching.
It is great week for eradicating pests and unwanted plants and also to prune in order to retard growth, but only if the Moon is transiting a Non Fertile Sign.
