Moon Folklore of the Day

When the moon runs low, expect warm weather.

Last 7 Days

    A growing Moon and a flowing tide are lucky times to marry.

    If the moon is seen between the scud and broken clouds during a gale, it is expected to cuff away the bad weather.

    From full Moon to the new Moon, or the dark of the Moon, is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.

    A few days after full or new moon, changes of weather are thought more probable than at any other time. -Scotland

    To many sky watchers, the Moon is home to the gods. Plutarch, a first-century Greek essayist, considered it a way station for the coming and going of souls.

    When round the moon there is a brugh [halo], The weather will be cold and rough. - Scottish proverb

    From the new to full Moon phases, a span known as the light of the Moon, is considered good for planting above-ground crops, putting down sod, grafting trees, and transplanting.
