It’s a brand new year, and for many, that means making resolutions and (hopefully!) sticking to them. One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight.
While there’s no time like the present to get healthier, you may be wondering or looking for the best time to start your healthier eating journey. Well, you’ve come to the right place. According to Farmers’ Almanac tradition, calculations, and calendars, when the Moon is in the appropriate phase and place in the zodiac, it’s widely believed that certain activities will be more fruitful or lead to improved results—we call them Best Days.
For example, the period between the new and full Moon (first and second quarters) is considered as the best time to perform tasks that require strength, fertility, and growth. The period between the full and new Moon (third and fourth quarters) is best for harvesting, slowing growth, etc. And consideration is also given to the relationship the Moon has with the 12 ruling signs of the zodiac.
