Today,July 12, 2013 has the sign of SEX in my Local Almanac for planting. What does that mean ? Is that a day to plant or weed or harvest or what ? Yesterday was a weed day and tomorrow is another weed day, both in Leo. Is today a rest day or what ?
The column you are talking about in the almanac is the Moon's place astronomically. For planting, weeding, etc you should be using the Moon's astrological place. If you have a copy of the 2013 Old Farmer's Almanac, you can find this information on p. 229. SEX is an abbreviation for the constellation Sextans, which lies south of the zodiac except for a corner that just touches it near Leo.
