Housework on 5 lunar day:

Today it's better to take a break from cleaning and other household chores. The best thing to do on this day is grocery shopping and organizing your food stocks; both the dry and refrigerated goods. The main task for this lunar day is to suss out what foods your body needs by following your sense of taste and to use this intuitive information in your choices for the rest of the lunar month as well. The energy of this day is directed toward the alchemy of the food we eat. It is a period of special transformation inside our digestive system, this is why it is better to direct your attention inward and determine the best products to ingest at this moment. If you have the mood or the will, you may choose to cook at home all the while listening to your feelings; how much salt, spices or herbs do you feel like adding into a particular dish or what beverage will best pair with it .

Housework on the Moon in Cancer:

The Moon is in Cancer, Water element is active. On these days it is good to vacuum, mop, change the bathroom fixtures and for house cleaning in general. You could and should wipe light bulbs and chandeliers or generally bring new lighting to dark spaces. It is also desirable to declutter. In this period it is reasonable to wash almost all the dishes in the house, because grease and dirt will come off more easily. The same goes for laundry, especially the stubbornest stains will wash easy and you will use less soap, particularly if the Cancer Moon is waning. On water days you shouldn't put away clothes, for they are sure to get damp. It is inadvisable to air out the living space. If you decide to clean your mattress also pay attention to Earth's satellite; during the waxing Moon in water signs it's not the best idea. Moisture will be drawn to the mattress and sleeping will become uncomfortable. However, if the Moon is waning hardwood floors will take well to mopping: you may mop with an extra wet rag moistened in freezing cold water with a 1:10 mixture of glycerin. Don't do that on a waxing Moon though, as it may cause mold and warping; in this case use as little water as possible and give preference to a vacuum or broom. These days are bad for painting, but good for watering house plants or freezing vegetables. Better to leave baking for another day.
Waxing Moon

Housework on the Waxing Moon:

The period of the Waxing Moon is not the best for cleaning. Also, don’t do any repairing including plastering walls, especially if the Moon is in Cancer or Leo. However, this period is appropriate for transplanting; unless the moon is in Aquarius. You may use these days for whitening laundry, when the young Moon will be passing through signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius. Preserve homemade food on a waxing Moon in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius. It is appropriate to mop wooden floors with a barely wet cloth, but not if the Moon is in Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.   If you decide to bake pie or cookies or anything that will be eaten fast – do that on a waxing Moon, they are days of Light and Benefit. The dough will rise faster during this period and pastries will come out better: soft and tasty.
