Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Some questions (and answers), concerning moon sign calendars in general and the functions of moonsigncalendar.net specifically.
Up to now I am already glad, if I can make the data available for the promised two months in advance. In case I donīt manage unfortunately you still must fall back to a printed moon calendar or the self-help method explained below. If there is an appropriate demand in the future I will make a "moonsigncalendar.net plus" available - against a club contribution
With the Moon Phase Calculator you can compute the general moon data for arbitrary days between 1800 and 2050 (moon phase and moon sign) .
With these data you can find out favorable and/or unfavorable days, if you know the moon rule ( e.g. from a book or regarding surgery see below).
If the day lies within the next approx. eight weeks, it is the simplest, to look in the menu option
Activities for the suitable term, to which you like to see recommendations. In a 2. step you can see all recommended days or you page through under the suitable
Areas, if the activity is not too special.
Perhaps a different spelling or another word and/or synonym brings the desired information. In some cases e.g. in England, Australia or Ireland different terms are used than in the US and vice versa. Another option is to browse through all the activities.
Please write me a mail, if possible with some information, from where you know this rule (book?) and/or own experiences.
The basic rule for operation dates favored by the moon calendar: waning moon, and optimally the moon should not not be in the sign, which governs the part of the body concerned.
Naturally many factors play a role in a successful surgery. For sure the influence of the moon is only one of them. A very good physician on a less good moon day might be preferable to a bad physician at a good moon date.
On principle yes. If your local time zone differs many hours from CET, GMT, EST or PST which are currently used to calculate the recommendations of moonsigncalendar.net this can lead to deviations in some cases. Sometimes (however not always) the moon character is shifted one day (it applies for midnight) and/or the full moon and/or new moon falls on the day after or before. But I will add data for more time zones, if there is demand for it.
In the Southern Hemisphere some of the gardening recommendations might not be directly applicable because of the other seasons and climate.
Back to the beginning
Thus, I hope naturally that my moon calendar is always right ; -)
As far as the phases of the moon are concerned there should not be different data, if the same time zone is used (see above). But even in a well known (printed) moon calendar they once had wrong data. Nobody is perfect ... If you like, you can check the U.S. Naval Observatory's Complete Sun and Moon Data for One Day
Regarding the moon sign, there are on the one hand differences between moon calendars, which are based upon (astronomical) constellation (usually biodynamic calendars) and the traditional - like mine - which are based upon the zodiac sign. This does not automatically mean, that the data are very different. Then there are still small differences whether one takes the moon conditions around midnight or however at noon. I follow, as mentioned before, the traditional moon calendar, which has been based for centuries on the position of the moon in the zodiac at midnight.
This is because the traditional moon calendar, which I follow, is based on the position of the moon at midnight.
If you do not see recommendations for today but e.g. from yesterday, please click first "Refresh" in your browser. The browser often stores the "old" pages still on the computer, so that they do not have to load again everything from the net (browsercache). - Very useful at times, but sometimes irritating and disturbing, if the pages - like the daily recommendations - are often updated. If that does not help, probably a technical error has occurred - please try to contact me!
