One of the most important jobs is that of being a farmer. Without farmers to produce our food, civilisation would cease. Even with modern tools and knowledge, farming can be a precarious business. In the past, the situation was even more risky and farmers were always on the lookout for ways to improve their lot. Many farming tasks were seen as being influenced by the Moon, and it was believed that performing a job when the Moon was in a sympathetic stage could reap dividends. In Lithuania and other countries, it was thought that the best time to shear sheep was during the time when the Moon moved from a crescent to a half-moon. It was also believed that animals should be slaughtered for their meat when the Moon was full, as this improved the flavour. Likewise, according to fishing folk, crabbing, shrimping and clamming were best done when the Moon was full. Vegetables were supposed to be planted when the moon was young - this was especially true of spring crops. If you really wanted to ensure a bumper harvest, it was considered wise to get a pregnant woman to sow the seeds; particularly when the Moon was in the fertile signs of; Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces, then surround the seeds with iron or rusty nails. No-one said farming was ever easy!
