2019 - 5th Edition - Celestial Planting Calendar
What is inside this years issue:
Our theme this year is trees—honouring them, respecting them, thanking them, having conversations with them, and caring for them. There is an excellent article on windbreaks, another on tree paste, and sprinkled throughout are beautiful, vibrant paintings that capture the many moods and seasons in which trees grow.
Our goal is always to blend science with art, rather than isolate either or both. Once again we offer suggestions as to when to apply Horn Manure (BD500) and Horn Silica (BD501) preparations. These suggested times are based on positive planetary aspects and are by no means is it considered imperative to use on all the recommended days. Just what works in your schedule. Also included for each Moon cycle are suggested windows of time to apply Hugh Courtney’s Sequential Spray Program to attract water and deter water.
Gary Caton’s article on “The Sextile Aspect” offers an alchemical perspective into planetary relationships. His article on the alignment of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Sagittarius offers an historical background and insights into the nature of this stellium.
The year's calendar features unique tree theme paintings by Joyce Burkholder which highlight the Algonquin Park area of northern Ontario.
This 40-page, full-colour, 13-month calendar consists of introductory and advanced articles and charts, designed for use in both northern and southern hemispheres.
Each monthly presentation consists of daily and hourly colour-coded charts of lunar placements in the zodiac as well as solar, lunar, and planetary interrelationships.
The easy-to-read pictorials on the charts include lunar phases, apogee and perigee and lunar nodes. The reader can quickly catch on to how these elements influence plant growth and reproduction. Recommendations for applying biodynamic preparations (BD500, BD501 and sequential spray) are clearly noted.
