If rays of the full moon fall on your face while you're sleeping, you will go mad.
If on her cheeks you see the maiden's blush,
The ruddy moon foreshows that winds will rush.-Virgil, Roman poet (70 B.C.-19 B.C.)
When the moon runs low, expect warm weather.
Seeing a new moon straight ahead is considered to be very lucky.
When the moon rises red and appears large, with clouds, expect rain in twelve hours.
Anything cut during the waning moon will not grow, including plants, hair, and fingernails.
A dry moon is far north and soon seen.
Children born at a full moon will be strong.
