Moon Moon, Mother Moon

Lunar Lore

The hour is nigh; the waning Queen

Walks forth to rule the later night;

Crown’d with the sparkle of a Star,

And throned on orb of ashen light.

~ Sir Richard F. Burton, “Kasidah.”

.

He made an instrument to know

If the moon shine at full or no.

~ Samuel Butler

.

The moon is a silver pinhead vast

That holds the heavens tent-hangings fast.

~ W. R. Alger, “The Use of the Moon.”

.

The Moon in opposition to Jupiter,

denotes a good day in all kind of things.

~ Bethem’s “Centiloquium”

Chestnut or black ash timber for fence rails is four times

better if cut in the last quarter of the moon (Feb or Mar) than in

the first quarter. Chestnut, for firewood, snaps more when burning if

cut in first quarter. Hemlock burns better if cut in last quarter.

~ “Old Farmer’s Almanac” for 1833

It is a sign of fair weather, if the full moon rise clear.

~ Encyc. of Superstitions, Folklore & Occult Sciences of the World

When the moon passes through the signs of the Zodiac

Which are most peculiar to the Earth, if you then plant trees,

They will be strongly rooted in the Earth;

If you plant them when she passes through the signs of the Air,

Then the tree so planted, will be plentiful in branches and leaves,

And increases more upward then downward.

~ John Baptista Porta, “Natural Magick”, book I.

Moon Moon, Mother Moon

Lunar Lore

Slowly the solemn moon its full orb rears, And through the skies its lucid influence throws, Each glittering star ’mid fleecy clouds appears, And through th’ immeasurable path of heaven The high galaxy glows. ~ Ann Batten Cristall, “Poetical Sketches.”

The moon she possibly doth shine because Strook by the rays of sun, and day by day May turn unto our gaze her light, the more She doth recede from orb of sun, until, Facing him opposite across the world, She hath with full effulgence gleamed abroad… – Lucretius, “On the Nature of Things.”
