Lunar hair cutting

Recently I found out about cutting your hair according to the phases of the moon. It’s supposed to help you healthier, longer and thicker hair. There’s a lot of information online, but because that might be a bit overwhelming, I made a little fact sheet with just some basic information. I must say that some things are not that clear to me. Sometimes one source says it’s a good time to cut your hair, while the other source is saying it’s not. So I try to stick with the basic facts.

Basic facts:

  • It usually is better to try and cut in earth signs instead of water signs.
  • Always cut between new moon and full moon

  1. This is really cool, I have to try cutting it according with the moon phases, not that I need thicker hair, is just that I am interested in paganism and the moon, and I find this very interesting. Thanks for sharing. ^^

So, what do you think?
