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

    A crescent moon that is waxing is good luck for lovers and travelers.

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

    Circles round the moon always foretell wind from the side where they break, and a remarkable brilliancy in any part of the circle denotes wind from that quarter. - Francis Bacon, English philosopher (1561–1626)

    When the moon runs low, expect warm weather.

    A growing Moon and a flowing tide are lucky times to marry.

    If the moon is seen between the scud and broken clouds during a gale, it is expected to cuff away the bad weather.

    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.
