As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Crescent Moon Lore
They said in Wales that if you moved from one house to another during the Crescent Moon, you would have more than enough prosperity in your life.
Sailors believd that if the Moon, in the first or last quarter, lay in nearly a horizontal position with the horns upward, the weather would be fine. Country people say that the same type of Moon means good weather for twenty-eight days.
The Gauls made ritual cakes in crescent shapes in honor of the Moon. Today in France these are called croissants, which are known as "moon-teeth."
The first time you see a crescent moon for the month, take all your spare coins out of your pocket, and put them in the other pocket. This will ensure good luck for the next month.
Charms and Amulets, in the shape of a crescent moon, are used to protect you from the evil eye, witchery and advance individual prosperity. The Crescent must always point to the left, this represents the first quarter of the moon, when things prosper and grow.
The horseshoe is the symbol of the lunar crescent. Certain ancient British coins had the horse and the crescent on them. For the horseshoe, and the Crescent Moon, to be lucky and hold the luck, the horns must be turned upward.
In Roman times, women wore silver moon crescents on their shoes to ensure having healthy babies.
The word "create" comes from the same word-root as the word "crescent."
More recently, the crescent moon is a sacred symbol of the Goddess and also a symbol of magick, fertility, and the secret powers of Nature.
