Housekeeping & Home Maintenance

Did you know that maintenance work, repair jobs and housework are best done while the Moon is waning? The two weeks between Full Moon and New Moon is indeed the most practical time to do all kind of cleaning jobs. You might have experienced it yourself when cleaning floors and windows:

Some times it is done effortlessly and turns out better than at other times, when you just can’t get it right. You might even have wondered how this can be so.

At least part of the explanation has to do with the moisture content in the atmosphere. When the Moon moves through water or earth signs, the amount of moisture in the air is slightly higher, even on dry and sunny days. This has subtle implications on some of the activities and daily chores we do, like cleaning windows.

Observe it yourself: when the Moon is moving through a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), the day has a dry and warm quality to it, relatively to the season, therefore it is easier and more effective to clean windows.

The Moontime Diary 2022 helps you find the best and worst times to plan for more than 50 housekeeping activities such as:

  • Cleaning, maintaining and repair jobs
  • Dusting and vacuuming
  • Watery jobs like doing the laundry, mopping timber floors, cleaning windows and mirrors
  • Attending to your bookkeeping and correspondence
  • Beautifying your surroundings and more …

I bought the first Moontime 2011 and I can’t understand how I have lived life without it!! I feel like I have been walking around with my eyes shut and now… it’s like a fog has lifted and I can see clearly to plan my days and the rest of the year!! The daily tips are amazing, and I actually find I am getting things done that I normally think about doing but never actually do!!! (You know, cleaning the windows!!) I have become so much more organised because I am now looking in my diary for a good date to do certain things… like book in with my hairdresser next Thursday because I have curly hair!! I will be buying next years for sure… and every year for evermore!!!
