April moon chart

Note click here for updated calendars for each new month

Looks like April 22 is my day to garden .

I have chose to use these dates for moon planting this month.
it is a compromise between the diffrent date posted all over.
I would love to know if any one really knows what the right sign is for the moon.

Biodynamic gardeners plant most flower, fruit and vegetable seeds two days prior to a new moon. This is considered the ideal time because light and gravitational conditions during seven days following new moon become increasingly favorable for the development of roots and plant foliage. The moon shines a bit brighter and lunar gravity increases a little each day giving young plants an early boost.

April 29 - Gemini changing to Cancer
April 30 - Cancer (water, feminine); Crab; Moon; in the old ways my Aunt used it is not a sign used for planting. But in the biometric ways and sild real ways it is the most fertile sign.

Wisdom from my elders.
According to my Aunt in WV They used these old rules to plant by.

Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Pisces are good planting signs,
Aries Gemini Leo Cancer Taurus Libra Virgo not good.
Plant underground root plant during the dark of the moon.
Plant above ground crop like tomatoes in the light of the moon.
Do not plant in full moon.
Planting with Pisces Yields twice the crop
Leo plants will die if damaged in this sign.
Virgo crop will be diseased if damage in this sign.
