For the best-tasting sauerkraut, make it just after the full Moon.
In the wane of the Moon a cloudy morning bodes a fair afternoon.

If the sun or moon outshines the "brugh" (or halo), bad weather will not come.
Fence posts should be set in the dark of the Moon to resist rotting.
The circle of the moon never filled a pond; the circle of the sun wets a shepherd.
Seeing a new moon through the branches of a tree is unlucky.
It is unlucky to see “the old Moon in the arms of the new” or the faint image of the full disk while the new crescent Moon is illuminated.
