Lunar Hair cut

It is believed, that the full moon is the best time to cut your hair and that the positive effects of the lunar rays stimulate its growth, making it even more beautiful and strong.

The Moon is very powerful. it effects our energy. It effects our Oceans, the tides, Crops, plants, and our mood. Our Body is 60 % water, imagine the effect it has on our bodies and everything around us.

Because of the ambiguous nature of astrology itself, this haircutting method isn’t fully confirmed by science. It is thought that the moon regulates growth because it has a direct pull on all living things. The idea is that once the full moon comes around, the universal powers of expansion are at their strongest, which is thought to encourage hair growth once it is cut.

The moon's powers of expansion are strongest when it's growing ( Waxing phases) until it becomes a Full Moon. So, if you cut your hair during this phase of growth, you're encouraging your hair to grow, that means you can have a haircut at any time between Waxing Gibbous Moon and a Full Moon.

Lunar hair care simply applies the same planetary principles to us. "The pull of the full moon and new moon creates a healthier, more productive garden.

Cutting Hair is also a release. a release of what no longer serve us. What ever is going inside of us that is causing low vibrations or emotions that are not serving our highest Good, or simply anything inside of us that does not make us feel good, we can imagine that we are getting it away from us and getting rid of it while cutting our hair. Full Moon has the energies of release, if you are trying to let go of something release anything of your life is 10 times more powerful during the Full Moon.

The Moon has Feminine energy unlike the Sun that has masculine energy, during Full moon this feminine energy is at its peak, so what do you think is more related to this more than our hair?

Cutting your hair according to the moon's calendar doesn't mean you should chop off several inches every month. Trimming hair on full moon schedules is the best method. Snip anywhere from 1/8 to 1 inch in order to seal dry ends, and yield healthy, beautiful hair.

You can also use the seasons of the zodiac signs as a helpful haircutting guide. The sun and the moon take one full year to go through all of the zodiac signs — this is how our birthday signs come about — and while it is going through each sign, the moon completes one monthly lunar cycle. The optimal times for hair growth can be determined by the water and fire zodiac signs.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

When the moon passes through these water sign seasons, it is said that the energies are the most fertile. This means that during these times, repair, recovery, and growth are promoted. So if you’re hoping for a haircut that will yield long and healthy locks, you’ll want to book your stylist during a water sign season. In order to keep track of when these times fall, remember that the Cancer season is June 21 to July 22, the Scorpio period is October 23 to November 21, and finally, the Pisces season is February 19 to March 20.

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

Unlike the water signs, the fire zodiac signs are the driest periods, so they do not bring about any signs of growth whatsoever. However, these signs are best for booking hair removal appointments, like waxing or laser procedures, because there is so little fertile energy during these times. So, the optimal times for unwanted hair removal is during the fire signs (particularly during Aries). The Aries season runs from March 21 to April 19, the Leo season is from July 23 to August 22, and the Sagittarius season is November 22 to December 21.

Farmers have been using this system to determine the best harvesting and planting seasons. Today, you can use the same cycle to determine when you should trim your hair.

Check the next Full Moon and you are good to go three days before and 1 day after.
