You're welcome.

And, a few more to add to the list:
1) moon-faced 圓臉的

2) moonhead 笨蛋/傻瓜

3) moonstruck 發狂的/神經錯亂的

4) English folklore saying: No moon, no man.
= The boy never comes to anything that's born at new moon.

(In Cornwall, when a child is born in the interval between an old moon and the first appearance of a new one, it is said that it will never live to reach the age of puberty.)

Futari,

1. What is an old moon? Here is the moon phases :http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_phases.phtml

2. Does that mean the child is born in the period of "dark of the moon"?


Thanks.

-------------------------------------------------

Please note that:
"old moon" = "waning moon" = definition 1)

MOON CYCLE:
(according to how the moon appears to us, in order of appearance)

1. New (also called the Dark Moon) - not visible
2. Waxing Crescent
3. First Quarter - commonly called a "half moon"
4. Waxing Gibbous
5. Full - we can see the entire illuminated portion of the moon
6. Waning Gibbous
7. Third Quarter - another "half moon", but the illuminated part is opposite of the First Quarter
8. Waning Crescent
9. New - back to the beginning

=========================================
http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_cycle.phtml
=========================================

So, according to the definition(s) given in the dictionary,
"old moon" corresponds to the seventh phase through eighth phase of the moon cycle till new moon restores and the cycle starts again.

HTH.
