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.)
To dream of a clear Moon portends success.
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.
To remove warts blow on them nine times during a full Moon.
When changes of the moon occur in the morning, expect rain.
It is unlucky to point at the new Moon or view any Moon over your shoulder.
Dig your horseradish in the full Moon for the best flavor.
If the new moon is far north, it will be cold for two weeks ; but if it is far south, it will be warm.
