Moon Folklore of the Day

If the new moon is not visible before the fourth day, the air will be unsettled for the whole month. -Francis Bacon, English philosopher (1561–1626)

Last 7 Days

    When the moon is visible in the daytime, the days are relatively cool.

    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.

    New moon far in the south indicates dry weather for a month.

    If the moon change on a Sunday, there will be a flood before the month is out. -Worcestershire

    Moles make more molehills during the waxing moon.

    The farther the moon is to the south, the greater the drought ; the farther west, the greater the flood, and the farther northwest, the greater the cold.

    Clear Moon, Frost soon. -Scottish proverb

    To dream of a red or “bloody” Moon warns of catastrophe or war.
