Hi Lori,
We believe that you might be looking at a different almanac, rather than The Old Farmer’s Almanac. The dates listed on this page are correct, according to our sources!

I am with Lori on this one. I

I am with Lori on this one. I would think the moon and it's phases would be the same regardless of which almanac you read.

Best days VS. Almanac

There is a difference in how the different almanacs calculate days. This version of THE OLD FARMERS ALMANAC is the best & accurate. The other almanac lists different generalized dates.
I’ve used this one for years as a hairstylist, mother & nutritionalist, planter.
Won’t use any other.

We appreciate your dedication, Crystal. Thank you for reading our Almanac!


I have found that cutting your hair while the moon is increasing encourages growth and cutting it while the moon is decreasing discourages growth, good rule of thumb without dates.
