We’re coming up on our third supermoon of the year on March 20. We’ve already had a supermoon and a blood moon this year, and it’s only Q1— is it too much to ask for a little lunar peace? Apparently, it is. Here’s what you need to know to get ready for this big old can of Worm Moon.
What is the Worm Moon?
The March full moon is always called the Worm Moon because it usually occurs during spring. And spring showers bring flowers…and also: worms.
This year, the full moon actually happens on the day of the vernal equinox, which is the advent of Aries season. This is usually a fertile, energetic time when life begins a new cycle after hibernation (or death) in winter.
However, full moons are usually emotionally charged events, as they dig up underlying discord and lay it out in the open to be resolved or discarded. It’s a monthly exercise in letting go, lest we get soft. So, this spring, at least some of the showers may be tears.
