Last 7 Days

    For the best-tasting sauerkraut, make it just after the full Moon.

    If you glimpse the new Moon over your right shoulder, you will have good luck.

    It is unlucky to point at the new Moon or view any Moon over your shoulder.

    A ring around the moon is a prediction of rain or snow to come.

    Moving house during a waning moon is good luck.

    It is lucky to move to a new home during the new Moon; prosperity will increase as the Moon waxes.

    The moon appearing larger at sunset, and not dim, but luminous, portends fair weather for several days.- Francis Bacon, English philosopher (1561–1626)
