Moon Folklore of the Day

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.

Last 7 Days

    Frost occurring in the dark of the moon kills fruit buds and blossoms, but frost in the light of the moon will not.

    Days following both the new and full Moons are most likely to be rainy or stormy.

    Babies born a day after the full Moon enjoy success and endurance.

    According to folklore, rail fences cut during the waning Moon will stay straighter.

    Committing robbery on the third day of a full moon will always result in failure.

    Moles make more molehills during the waxing moon.

    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.

    When the moon runs low, expect warm weather.
