The type of calander you would need is one that tells you what sign the moon like this
, there are simpler ones on the net that just happens to be the first one I found. You only need to know what sign the moon is in that day, which is in green on that calendar, abbreviations are listed below if you aren't familiar with them. The moon stays in each sign for approx 3 1/2 days. The times listed are in GMT times btw.
And here is the article. I got this off the net, and I no longer have the link for the source I'm sorry to say. I'm thinking it might have been hairboutique or perhaps Llewelyn, (sp?), I'm not sure which, if I or anyone else finds the link I will happily edit the post to include it. This might be long.
The Moon in Aries tends to be dry and barren. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries dynamically pushes head first into activities so this Moon is best used for short, sporty styles that can be created quickly with no fuss or muss. If you’ve always wanted the convenience of a bob, get a cut during this moon.
Since Aries is a fire sign with drying energy, chemically processing hair is not favored. Instead, moisturize and condition heavily. Cutting hair during this time will cause slow growth and dryer hair. Since Aries rules Mars and has dominion over the head and metal, be especially careful with scissors if you choose to have your haircut.
The Moon in Taurus is very productive and moist. When the Moon moves through the sign of Taurus, be assured that people are out to satisfy the senses. Soft, romantic, alluring styles are best planned for under this Moon if you want to melt your man’s heart. Wispy styles that fall delicately around your face are especially attractive now. If you want your hair to grow quickly and thickly, get your hair cut or trimmed during this moon. Chemically processing your hair is favored since there is moist growth energy. This is a fantastic moon to color your hair in earthy tones, especially ash blondes and browns. Taurus moons are best for kicking back and relaxing too. However, don’t be so inert that you forget to spend the time making your locks look sexy.
The Moon in Gemini is barren and dry. Gemini, an air sign, is far too fickle a Moon for drastic decisions to be made. One minute you’ll want radical, the next you’ll want romantic. After the deed is done, you may regret the hasty decision you made. Like Libra, wait this moon phase out. Look through magazines, have a hair consultation, chat with friends about trends but do no get your haircut. Gemini Moons are great for research so pick up a copy of your favorite hairstyling magazine. If however, you need a deep conditioning, go ahead. If you must color your hair, go “temporary” instead of “permanent.”
The Moon in Cancer is a fruitful and moist sign. It is considered the most productive of all the signs and most frequently used for planting, seeding and irrigation. As the premier water sign, Cancer is the best sign to get your hair cut for growth and thickness. Avoid radical styling moves such as severe colors or kinky perms. Cancer is a sign better suited to traditional styles that make mom and dad proud. Even if you do not need a cut but want the long, luxurious locks that knock men off their seats, consider a trim to enhance your hair’s growing ability. A soft look that frames your face will have your guy curling up in you arms. Because there is abundant moist energy available, all chemical processes will take well. This is a great time for coloring or highlighting your hair golden blonde.
The Moon in Leo is the most barren and driest of all signs since it’s naturally ruled by the burning sun. Deep conditioning treatments are a must during this time. If going out on the town, choose a sensational hair-do that grabs people’s attention since a Leo Moon loves the spotlight. A Leo moon may not be a good moon to attempt chemically processing your hair but it is excellent if you want to increase thickness. Leo people tend to have hair like the luxurious mane of a lion. Temporary colors are acceptable especially if they are in gold or copper tones. During this moon, closet entertainers come out of the woodwork making it a festive time for parties. A beautiful sweeping up-do is just the style to get noticed by that special someone. Rrrr! I hear the call of the wild.
The Moon in Virgo, although slightly moist, is the only barren earth sign. Virgo is the premiere sign of the harvest so only cut hair during this moon if you want to go from a longer style to a practical and conservative shorter style. Extremely thick hair should be thinned out. Radical changes should be avoided. Research flattering styles. Coloring is acceptable if the shade leans toward earthy tones, especially chestnut. Virgo moons bring the clean freak out in all of us so opt for shampoos that rid the hair of excessive product build-up. Virgo also rules over health so determine what vitamins, minerals and supplements we should take for our inner-beauty regime. B-Complex and Silica are especially good for our hair’s health.
The Moon in Libra is a semi-fertile and moist sign. Lunar Planters used this sign to plant vines and flowers, appropriate since Libra rules over beauty. It’s no surprise, then, that perms, colors and styles have a better chance of success during this moon although working with a style you already have is better. Libra is about perfection so use this moon to discover what style looks best on you. Cutting is acceptable but avoid radical styling. This is a favorable time for romantic and sensuous soft styles. Libra is a very sociable moon so match your hair to the occasion with a stunning up-do. Libra can easily see the pros and cons of any situation so it’s unlikely you’ll feel like making a big decision during this moon anyway.
The Moon in Scorpio is a very fruitful and moist and almost as productive as Cancer. For Hair Maintenance, cut hair if you need it to grow quickly. With so much moist energy, chemically processing enjoys greater success. Scorpio moons are passionate and dramatic so choose sexy, provocative, daring styles now. If you’ve wanted a dramatically different color and style that what you’re currently sporting, this is the moon to do it. Dark brown or black add to your intrigue. Severe styles are even met with success if attempted under this moon. Part of Scorpio’s sexiness is their mystery so think “seduction” during the Scorpio Moon.
The Moon in Sagittarius is barren and dry and fiery. Perms, colors and any chemical processes should be avoided during this moon since the fire quality will leave hair dry and brittle. Instead, choose deep conditioning treatments. Sagittarius Moons are good for sports activities and exploring so if you want short, sassy, easy to style hair, have it cut during this moon. Cutting now will also slow growth. Sagittarius in medical astrology rules the process of detoxifying the body, so now is a good time to take a critical look at your diet. Greasy, fatty foods will reek havoc in the body and ultimately manifest as lifeless, unmanageable hair. If you have dry and brittle hair, use a deep conditioning treatment.
The Moon in Capricorn is productive, earthy and feminine, a bit drier than Taurus but still good for cutting hair if you want faster growth. Capricorn moons are laced with assertive, career-advancing energy so avoid styles that are radical and take attention away from your hard work. If, however, you want a very conservative, yet sensuous look, choose this moon for cuts and colors. Since people are more concerned about their status and career during this moon, don’t attempt styles and cuts that make a statement about your individuality. If you are planning to highlight your hair avoid brassy reds or golds. Ash blonde or brown is more preferred. If cutting your hair, don’t stray from your current style. Cut for maintenance only. You’ll make a great impression at work if you choose classic, styles. Avoid trends.
The Moon in Aquarius is another barren and dry sign not suited for increasing growth or thickness. Definitely avoid chemically treating your hair since Aquarius is an air sign known for the unexpected. With so much drying air-like energy, processing will leave your hair dry. If however, you would like to flaunt your individuality with a trendy cut, this is a super moon to do so. Be aware, though, that your hair may not grow as quickly as you’d like when you tire of it. For a brief 2 ½ days, people want to revolutionize the world by trying new and exciting things so if you’re itching to be unique, add a temporary blue streak to your hair or crimp your hair
The Moon in Pisces is watery and feminine and one of the most fertile signs so expect increased growth and thickness if you cut your hair during this moon. In fact, almost any hair goal can be achieved with success. Chemically processing your hair is favorable since so much moist energy is available. A Pisces moon is meant for reflecting on your connection to other people and the cosmos so use this time for intimate, serious, and inspirational conversations with the opposite sex. There’s a passionate quality to this moon that sets the stage for romantic encounters. Don’t let this moon pass you by without trying a superbly romantic, soft style. Deep auburn and chestnut colors enhance an amorous moment.
To sum up the Moon Maintenance Plan:
Coordinating your hair activity with the appropriate moon phase and sign will have you working with the cycles instead of against. Since certain activities are better suited to certain times, take advantage of the energy that will make the task flow easier.
If you choose to grow your hair long, cut hair during the first phase of the moon when the light is increasing. To further enhance the growth of your hair, cut it when the moon is in Cancer, Taurus, Scorpio, Capricorn, or Pisces. To increase thickness, cut during these times but also during the Leo moon. If you hate cutting your hair every 4-6 weeks then choose the second phase of the moon when it is decreasing in light. Cutting when the moon is in a fire or air sign like Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius, also prevents excessive growth.
Creating elegant, romantic, and decorative styles work better when the moon is in Taurus, Libra, or Pisces—signs that are naturally ruled by the goddess of love and beauty, Venus.
