La Maison Rustique - Knowledge of the Movements of the Moon and Sun (thirteenth and fourteenth days)

From: L'agriculture et maison rustique, Charles Estienne (Rouen, 1658).

That the Farmer should have 
the knowledge of the movements of the Moon and the Sun,
of their abilities and effects upon rustic things.

(Chapter 9)


[thirteenth and fourteenth of the moon]

On the thirteenth day all work begins badly. Whoever falls ill on this day will languish a long time. Dreams will happen within nine days. The child born on this day will have a long life.

On the fourteenth day God blessed Noah for his works. Those who are sick on this day will be well kept. Dreams will be confused. The child born on this day will be perfect in all things.
