Llewellyn's 2013 Herbal Almanac

Unlike most almanacs, almost all the information in this book is not date specific. Only the Moon Tables in the back of the book will be obsolete at the end of the year. The bulk of the content consists of recipes, herb profiles, remedies and how-to information that will make it a useful reference for years to come.

The 2013 almanac includes articles on growing herbs, cooking with herbs, and using herbs for healing as well as some background history and mythology. Most interesting and specific are the pieces on "The Artemisias," horsetail ("A Dinosaur in Your Backyard"), moon gardens ("Moon Shine"), herbs for skin care, and bay leaves.

Moon Signs, Phases and Tables

"Moon in Libra is a good time to form partnerships of any kind and to negotiate. It discourages spontaneous initiative, so working with a partner is essential. Artistic work and teamwork are highlighted."

"Moon in Sagittarius is good for any activity that requires honesty, candor, imagination, and confidence in the flow of life. This is a good time to tackle things that need improvement, but watch out for a tendency to proselytize."
