Universal Lunar Calendar
Lunar Day 1
A day for making plans and 'symbolic beginnings'. Do not push forward too actively in a new direction while the Moon is still invisible in the sky. Instead, try to prioritise the activity which you know will be important for you during the coming month.
Sit down at the table and work out what needs to be done. Draw up a plan and take the very first step forward. There will be other days for everything else.
Lunar Day 2
A day for laying foundations. Good for beginnings, especially for long term issues such as conceiving a child or laying the first bricks of your future house. It favours moves, trips, long journeys and buying property, but it is a day when financial machinations or theft will bring trouble.
Lunar Day 3
Different traditions give contradictory interpretations of this day. The Vedic tradition recommends getting actively involved in an occupation, and Avesta even stresses being aggressive. Yet the European tradition states that the day is inauspicious and nothing important should be undertaken.
Lunar Day 4
This is a contradictory day. In the Vedic and Avesta traditions, it is inauspicious and only good for conflict and getting rid of anything outmoded. Nothing should be started, especially if it is connected to any kind of material gain. In the European tradition this is a good day for beginnings, especially if you are searching for something lost. It is also lucky for any kind of business that deals with water.
Lunar Day 5
The Vedic tradition considers this day to be the best for any the actions intended to bring benefits, and also excellent for beginning any enterprise. The European tradition states the opposite: the day is inauspicious, bringing losses and dangerous illnesses.
Lunar Day 6
Without doubt, an auspicious day. It is good for intellectual activities, study, spiritual pursuits and also for searching for lost people, animals and things. It favours recovery and the restoration of health. The Vedic tradition especially recommends this day for building and anything connected with property.
Lunar Day 7
On the whole, an auspicious day. It is a good day for starting a journey, and for everything to do with transport and vehicles. It is also good for surgery and medical treatment, for physical exercise and for everything which can be finished quickly. However, beware of telling others something you didn't really mean to tell them on this day.
Lunar Day 8
An auspicious day for trips, especially a business trip or long journey. The Vedic tradition recommends this day for many different things, including art, physical activities, and any business related to property. This is also thought to be one of the best days for any kind of beginning. However, this could be a critical day for those who are ill.
Lunar Day 9
A day of struggle, the aggravation of conflicts, and heightened risk. Nothing new should be started on this day, especially if it is connected to material issues. The best things to do on this day are physical activities, such as working with land and taking care of plants and animals.
Lunar Day 10
This is an exceptionally auspicious day in all traditions. It is especially good for beginning important business or acquiring a large-scale acquisition. It is also beneficial for travelling and anything connected to transport and vehicles. It gives those who were born on this day a love of long journeys.
Lunar Day 11
This day gives you an abundance of energy and favours moves and changes. It helps to get off the ground a business which was previously derailed. Make sure you put your excess energy into something useful, however, to avoid conflicts and bust-ups.
Lunar Day 12
Different traditions disagree about this day but overall, it is thought to be rather negative. It isn't advisable to undertake anything important, but if you have promised something to someone, make sure you keep your word. Medical treatment is not advisable on this day, especially if it involves surgery.
Lunar Day 13
European tradition treats this day as an exclusively negative for all sorts of affairs and especially negative for health. At the same time in Vedic tradition this day is auspicious. It favours important beginnings, improvement of relationships with other people and pleasant ways of spending time.
Lunar Day 14
Different astrological traditions strongly disagree about this day. The Vedic tradition doesn't recommend starting anything, especially if it concerns getting income, and advises you not to travel. On the contrary, Globa considers this day appropriate for any important business, and the European tradition treats it as generally happy.
Lunar Day 15
This is a more or less neutral day in the European and Vedic traditions, although it does increase sexuality and physical activity. In Vedic astrology it also favours new beginnings. However, for Globa this is a "Satanic" day, with all the ensuing consequences...
Lunar Day 16
An auspicious day, especially for trade, travelling and any occupations connected to land, property and animals. It is considered to be the best day for selling animals. Also good for celebrations, parties and festivities.
Lunar Day 17
A good day for marriage, the birth of children, family holidays and household chores. It favours all occupations connected to homes, households and land. The use of alcohol, medicines or drugs on this day should be strictly limited. Only Albert the Great describes this day as particularly negative.
Lunar Day 18
A more-or-less positive day. It favours the beginning of long-term projects, especially those aimed at earning money. It is an appropriate day to seek medical advise and treat your health, but chronic diseases can also be aggravated on this day.
Lunar Day 19
A difficult, even dangerous, day in all astrological traditions. It is suited only for struggles with enemies, and the destruction of anything outmoded. On this day, good deeds and noble actions may bring a very different result to the one you had been hoping for. It isn't suitable for starting anything important, especially connected with earning money. Marriage is undesirable, and you should also avoid drunks.
Lunar Day 20
A beneficial day in all traditions, especially for important beginnings. Good for marriage. However, this day may be difficult for those who are ill and children born on this day may have a difficult temper.
Lunar Day 21
An active and lucky day. Good for making moves, trips and travelling in general. It is also beneficial for friendships, entertainment and holidays. It favours sports, physical exercise and outdoor activities. In addition, it is not a bad day for business undertakings, trade and gambling. Anything lost on this day will soon be found again.
Lunar Day 22
Different traditions completely disagree on how to treat this day. The European tradition takes it as particularly inauspicious, but suggests that those who were born on this day have the potential to become good people. The Vedic tradition considers it auspicious for trips and transport, whilst Globa recommends it as a day to study sciences, and master a specific subject.
Lunar Day 23
Most traditions consider this day as fairly good and active. The European tradition portends fame and honours to matters which come to a head on this day, but it doesn't recommend starting anything new. The Vedic tradition promises success in many affairs and also does recommend starting something new. For Globa, it is a day of penitence when vampires rage...
Lunar Day 24
In the European tradition, this day is of no account and is considered to be absolutely neutral, but Veda and Avesta emphasise that it increases physical energy and sexuality, and inclines to arguments, risks and rivalry. It is not recommended to start anything, especially with the hopes of significant financial results.
Lunar Day 25
Different traditions contradict each other about this day. Albert the Great considers it to be unfortunate, whilst Vronsky and Veda see it as auspicious for trips and travelling, trade and buying. Veda recommends that important affairs should be started on this day, but Globa believes everyone should be passive and contemplative.
Lunar Day 26
An inauspicious day. Don't start anything new, be temperate, and get rid of anything superfluous or harmful. Also, try to avoid unnecessary outlays of money and energy. At the same time, this day helps you to see the real face of other people and unveils those who wish you harm. Its influence on health is mostly negative.
Lunar Day 27
An auspicious day in all traditions. The only difference is that Veda doesn't recommend travelling, whilst Globa suggests it is positive for travel, but advises against drinking alcohol.
Lunar Day 28
A happy day. Good for beginning an important pursuit, for getting to know influential people, and for meeting friends. It favours holidays, amusements and pleasures, and it improves health.
Lunar Day 29
All traditions agree that this is an inauspicious day, Travel is not recommended, nor should you start anything with the aim of receiving [gain or material benefits]. Do only those things which are absolutely necessary at the moment, and get rid of anything useless.
Lunar Day 30
An exceptionally auspicious day, which, unfortunately, does not happen every lunar month. It favours all beginnings, and helps the sick to recuperate and improve. It also favours a successful, smooth ending to all matters which have reached their final stage. It is important to be generous, and to recognise and reward everyone's contribution.
A time of lull, the completion of old activities and the preparation of new ones. Everything is in decline now - life energy, emotions and physiological activity. For this reason, any projects which require significant effort are not advisable now. This is an inauspicious time for people with low blood pressure and those prone to depression.
First Quarter of the Moon
A stressful period of time when there is a strong desire to accomplish something, to change, and to show oneself. However, before undertaking anything, first stop and think: is it really needed? Obstacles multiply at this time and contradictions sharpen. Plans developed under this influence often turn out to be unrealistic because people tend to overvalue their abilities.
A period of excess when everything in nature brims over. Emotions, psychic energy, physiological activity - everything is at its maximum. This is the time of increased creativity, but with those who are prone to high blood pressure, epilepsy or over excitement, this Full Moon period can be problematic.
Last Quarter of the Moon
A stressful and unsettled period. Your ambitions are being stirred up and there is a desire to do something very important and show everyone how cool you are. However, the best way forward is to think thoroughly before doing anything and to direct your energy towards jobs planned earlier, rather than ideas which have just sprung into your head now.
Moon in Aries
An increase of activity, impetuosity, striving, and energetic action. This Moon favours occupations which demand courage, decisiveness, swiftness and initiative, but anything which requires patience, diligence and diplomacy is likely to decline now. It is a good time for athletics, and for solving problems by 'brainstorming'. Dental visits are not recommended on the Aries Moon.
In the body, Aries rules the head and all the organs located on it.
Moon in Taurus
Patience, diligence, perseverance and practicality are on the increase. The Moon in Taurus favours occupations which demand prolonged and persistent effort, but it is also good for complete rest in comfort and coziness. It is a good time to treat plants. It is best to avoid undertaking anything which requires quickness, decisiveness and quick-wittedness.
In the body, Taurus rules neck and throat.
Moon in Gemini
Sociability, cheerfulness and quick-wittedness are on the increase, and there is an interest in all kinds of information. The Moon in Gemini favours study, intellectual pursuits, acquaintances, conferences and gatherings. However, heightened changeability and scattering your interests can prevent you from getting definite, tangible results.
In the body the sign of Gemini is associated with lungs, upper airways, arms and hands, clavicles.
Moon in Cancer
Increased emotions, vulnerability and touchiness. Your need for seclusion could become quite strong, and there is a desire to communicate only with those closest to you. It is not a good idea to deal with large groups of people, or to appear on stage. You may also want to care for others, or have others look after you. Emotional difficulties may also be an obstacle to business success.
In the body, the sign of Cancer is associated primarily with stomach and breasts.
Moon in Leo
The desire to be noticeable, appreciated, and to feel you are the centre of other people's attention will be dominant. There is a stronger than usual desire to hear praise, and your emotions will be expressed vividly and openly. This is a good time to perform and appear on stage, to play, create and do everything which inspires you and lets you express your inner self. However, your ability to perceive details and nuances could deteriorate at this time.
In the body, Leo is associated with the heart and also the back.
Moon in Virgo
Attention towards details is on the increase, with a tendency to fault-finding, cleanliness and neatness. It is a good time to undertake routine, painstaking work, and to search for and correct errors. Your body may be more intolerant of low-grade food and harmful substances, and this is a good day to begin a diet.
In the body, Virgo is associated with the bowels and abdomen in general.
Moon in Libra
Increased sociability, interest in new acquaintances, a desire for mutual understanding. Partnerships are in focus. Good for social gatherings, celebrations, business meetings and a romantic rendezvous. However, your ability to make decisions suffers because people are more prone to doubts and hesitation now.
Libra is associated with lower back and the kidneys.
Moon in Scorpio
An emotionally difficult time. There is increased jealousy, greediness, envy and other negative feelings. The colours of the world turn black and white. Sexuality and sensuality go up and strong, powerful emotions run high, whilst diplomacy and tact will noticeably decline. However, it is a good time for any occupation which needs intensity and total devotion.
In the body, Scorpio rules sexual organs, pelvis, colon and urinary system.
Moon in Sagittarius
Generosity, openness, optimism and the desire to give advice and share experience are all increased. There is a heightened interest in travel and foreign countries, and any activities and recreations taking place in the open air. You may, however, be over-confident and may not have a good grasp of practicalities. It is a suitable time for large-scale plans but not for any occupations which require attention to detail.
In the body, Saggitarius rules hips and thighs.
Moon in Capricorn
There is an increase in formality, strictness and exactitude, with a tendency to reserve and distance. Rules and regulations are dominant. It is a suitable time for all activities which require extra responsibility and discipline, but you shouldn't rely on someone's receptivity or emotional pliability.
Capricorn is associated with the knees and also with all the bones.
Moon in Aquarius
There is an increased interest in knowledge, and a need to communicate with like-minded individuals. At the same time, your desire for freedom and independence is strengthened, and you will want to establish your own rules. It is a good period for reading, study and scientific pursuits. However, activities which require subordination and discipline, as well as jobs which bore you, will go from bad to worse now.
In the body, Aquarius is associated with ankles and blood vessels.
Moon in Pisces
This brings an increase of emotions and a receptivity to other peoples' feelings. You will have a desire to be of help, and you may be willing to sacrifice something for the sake of others. Your emotions predominate over common sense, so it is better to do things which require imagination and inspiration, rather than reason and cool logic. Your body may be more responsive than usual to alcohol, drugs and medicines, so beware of overdoses. Poor quality food could also give you a touch of food poisoning.
The sign of Pisces is associated with the feet and lymphatic system.
