Pale Moon doth rain,
Red Moon doth blow,
White Moon doth neither
Rain nor snow.
Clear Moon, frost soon.
A dark mist over the Moon is a promise of rain.
The heaviest rains fall following the New and
the Full Moons
The Full Moon eats the clouds away.
A New Moon and a windy night.
Sweep the cobwebs out of sight.
A Red Moon is a sure sign of high winds.
And should the Moon wear a halo of red, a tempest
Many rings around the Moon signal a series
of severe blasts.
A single ring around the moon that quickly
vanishes heralds fine weather.
When the New Moon holds the Old Moon in its
(ring around the New Moon) disasters occur
Sharp horns on the Sickle Moon indicate strong
When the moon's horns point up, the weather
will be dry.
When the Moon's horns point down, rain spills
Blunt horns on a Crescent Moon presage a long
spell of fair weather.
