Reading the signs

Where is the Moon?

In any moon cycle at new moon phase, the moon meets up with the sun, and from earth’s vantage point, the sun and moon are next to each other, in the same sign for approximately 2.5 days.
Then, the moon continues to move ahead of the sun to the following sign, and around 14 days later, about the halfway point of the cycle, the moon has travelled through six signs and at full phase, in the opposite sign to the sun.
Continuing the cycle, the moon moves through the next six signs to join up with the sun again, (at the dark phase), to begin a new cycle.

In gardening, and specifically for planting, the sign of the moon is considered for optimum moisture and growth.
