Lunar Lore

Pale moon doth rain,
Red moon doth blow,
White moon doth neither rain nor snow.
~ From the Latin proverb (Clarke, 1639).

The moon is a silver pinhead vast
That holds the heavens tent-hangings fast.
– W. R. Alger, “The Use of the Moon.”

Elf (plural, Elves, Anglo-Saxon, oelf): properly, a mountain fay,
but more loosely applied to those airy creatures that
dance on the grass or sit in the leaves of trees and
delight in the full moon.
~Brewer’s “Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.”

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.
