As magickal people we cast spells and garden by the Moon, but these activities aren't the only things that benefit from paying close attention to the Moon's phases and signs. Cutting hair, buying cars, and virtually everything else will go much smoother if attention is paid to the position of the Moon. Use the following chart to plan your activities.

THE MOON AND YOUR HAIR
Dark hair cut at the full moon becomes lighter.
Haircuts in Taurus become shaggy.
Never cut hair while the moon is in Capricorn; it turns grey prematurely.
If the hairstyle needs to last longer, cut it during the waning moon; it will grow out much slower.
When the hair should grow faster, cut it in the signs of Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra.
For a permanently curly crowning glory, cut the hair while the moon is waxing in Aries. For a man, Leo.
Haircuts are best when the moon is in a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).
Permanents, hair relaxants, or dyes are best in Aquarius.
