La Maison Rustique - Knowledge of the Movements of the Moon and Sun (ninth and tenth 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)


[ninth and tenth days of the moon]

On the ninth day Nebuchadnezzar was born. This day is indifferent, the night’s dream will be disordered, the person who falls ill, will not die within a week, but will languish, and the child born on this day will have a long life.

The tenth, Noah was born. All good things done this day will prosper, dreams will be of no effect. He who falls into tribulation or adversity should not fear, for it will not last; whoever  becomes sick will die within ten days, if he is not well rescued. The child born on this day will cross several countries and distant regions.
