Gardening Moon Magic – The Witch’s Garden

In the mid-latitudes of the Northern hemisphere, April is the beginning of planting season. Some gardeners prefer to sow their seeds indoors before the last freeze date, while others wait and sow directly into their garden, and others still, buy young plants for transplanting. Whichever way you choose to go, here is an optimized calendar for most of the Taurus sun sign. Happy gardening!

In addition to the moon signs, the moon phases are also helpful in determining the best times for specific garden work. Planting (manifesting) is best under a waxing moon and weeding (banishing) is best performed under a waning moon. The best planting in April 2020 is after the 22nd. The best planting dates in May fall before the full moon on May 7, 2020, and after the new moon on May 22nd. Between the full and new moons, kill weeds and catch slugs. The banishing effect of the waning moon will double your efforts.
