5th Night of the Moon
Aloha Moon Lovers!
Years ago when I was studying all I could about astronomy, I stumbled upon an old Farmers Almanac which had the most interesting astronomy knowledge ( Farmers Almanac traces its format and tradition to Benjamin Franklin’s Poor Richard’s Almanack).
I learned that our ancestors had such a great understanding of nature and the cycles and rhythms of planets, the Moon, the Sun, the stars, weather, agricultural, and life itself. Much like the native Hawaiians and their profound respect and relationship to nature, I wanted to learn all I could.
One of the articles I read was about the 5th day of the Moon being a predictor of weather. What ever the weather is like on the 5th day of the Moon will be the trending pattern of weather for the next 30 days! So if it’s windy on this day……there will be lots of wind in the coming weeks. If it’s cloudy island wide…..expect a lot of clouds for 30 days!
I have been testing this theory for 19 years! And it has been 95% accurate!
You may have noticed this year that Feb., March, April and May were very cloudy months……guess what?! It was in accordance with the 5th day of the Moon!!
So go outside and check the weather today. This is what it will be like for the next moon cycle. I’m so happy because Makawao is clear as a bell today (so rare as of late)!
