Light a Candle
Indeed, there is scientific validity to the adage,
“red sky at night sailors delight; red sky in the morning sailors take warning.”
This saying has very old roots.
In the bible (Matthew 16:2-3), the following quote is attributed to Jesus: “When it is evening, ye say, fair weather: for the heaven is red and lowering.” There are also versions of this saying that refer to shepherds instead of sailors.
Two factors contribute to the cogency of this saying. The first is that weather systems generally travel from west to east in the mid latitudes. Because the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, a rising sun in advance of an approaching weather system would illuminate the approaching mid- and high-level clouds to create a red sky in the morning. Alternatively, if the sun is setting as a weather system exits and high pressure is building, then the departing clouds would be illuminated. This would create a red sky at night with fair weather to follow.

“If you’re burning the whole candle, say, “I will have good luck” for every one-third of the candle that melts away. When it’s time to blow out the candle, imagine the bad luck in your life being extinguished. Light a candle in the color of your choice and say, “This candle represents me.”
