Moon Folklore of the Day

If one gets ill on the eighth day of a new moon they will die.

Last 7 Days

    For better results when spring-cleaning, do the chores during a waning Moon (between full and new).

    In the wane of the Moon a cloudy morning bodes a fair afternoon.

    To remove warts “wash” your hands in the Moon’s rays captured in a shiny metal basin.

    It is unlucky to sleep in the moonlight, or worse, be born in the moonlight.

    From full Moon to the new Moon, or the dark of the Moon, is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.

    Moving house during a waning moon is good luck.

    Fence posts should be set in the dark of the Moon to resist rotting.
