Lunar gardening facts are derived from the astrological sign of the Moon, which is different from the astronomical constellation of the same name. In other words, there are actual constellations that are named for the zodiac, and the moon passes through each of these, but they don’t match the astrological signs.
The heavens are divided equally into the twelve signs of the zodiac, but the constellations aren’t actually in those signs. The Gardening by the Moon Calendar is based on the geocentric, earth-centered view, and the Tropical zodiac.
Those mark each hour of the day so you can see approximately what time of day the moon sign changes. It reads like a time line, with the morning hours on the left of center, and the evening hours to the right of center. The gray bars that span several days show when the moon is in that sign.
