The Moon plays an important part in our life on Earth. Almost everyone knows that it is the influence of the Moon that creates the forces that cause the sea to move backwards and forwards within the ocean basins and produce tides on the shores of the continents. To a lesser but more impressive extent this gravitational pull, also, works on the landmass of the continents and causes them to flex.The art of astrology is based on the pressures of the Moon and the much more distant planets on our beings at the time of birth. So, is it surprising that the Moon can, also, influence the growth of plants? When sown at the right time in the lunar cycle the seed has time to settle in its new home in the soil and then push upwards with the assistance of favourable energies. All through the life of the plant the Moon's energy has a cyclic effect on its growth. At some times of the month its energy is being suppressed whilst at others it is being drawn upwards. It is at this time that the plant is best harvested to get the most goodness out of it.This book ranges far beyond the effects of the Moon in the gardener's year.
It looks at the pull of the Moon on our very bodies and how it can be used beneficially for our own health and even to find the most appropriate time for a hair cut! The book is a mine of information on all things connected with the Moon and gives an insight into the lunar effect on plants, humanity and the planet.
