March Full Moon

nearly full moonThe March Full Moon is known by many names: The Chaste Moon,  the Seed or Worm Moon, the Crow Moon, Full Crust Moon, The Full Sap Moon or the Lenten Moon.

As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.

It is a time to plant mental seeds – thoughts of success and hope. This is also a time of purity and newness. It’s the time to bless the magical herbs and plants in your garden and to start preparing the soil for the seeds that you will plant. It’s also the time to mentally prepare yourself for new experiences, a new job, pregnancy, taking a trip, or bringing a new animal into your home.

Wave goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring’s New Beginnings!

No matter what you call it, are you ready for the newness that the March full moon brings?

Many Blessings,
