Moon Folklore of the Day

The three days of the change of the moon from the wax to the wane we get no rain.

Last 7 Days

    If on her cheeks you see the maiden's blush, The ruddy moon foreshows that winds will rush.-Virgil, Roman poet (70–19 B.C.)

    The circle of the moon never filled a pond; the circle of the sun wets a shepherd.

    Clothes washed for the first time in the full Moon will not last long.

    To remove warts blow on them nine times during a full Moon.

    One Saturday change in the Moon is enough, as it is always followed by a severe storm.

    If tree branches are cut during a waxing moon the branches will grow straighter.

    Moving house during a waning moon is good luck.
