A brilliant moon prognosticates: to a wife, love and good health; to a husband, increase in wealth. New moon: advancement in business; waning, death of a great man; a halo around the moon denotes pardon and deliverance through a female; a red moon, voyages, pilgrimages; dull moon, death or illness to wife, sister or female relative; perilous journey- ings, especially by sea, brain fever, eye trouble. An obscure moon becoming bright, profit to a woman, joy to a man. From clearness to obscurity, loss, sadness, misfortune to men and women. Two moons denote increase in rank and dignity; when a beautiful woman dreams of the moon, the dream forecasts high standing, dignity and admiration. To thieves, murderers, etc., it denotes justice; to invalids danger of death or shipwreck. For a young girl or widow to dream of a full, dazzling moon, the prognostication is marriage; to a married woman, the birth of a beautiful daughter; to a man the birth of a son. A happy dream to jewelers, goldsmiths, etc. (National Dream Book). Most of these presages, it will be observed, are astrological.
