March New Moon and Full Moon

From my friend, Marney Bruce, again… thanks, Marney!
Hi All – happy new moon. We are in for a treat again this month with Venus shining brightly in the western sky with the crescent moon. On Friday, February 27, a sliver of a crescent moon will sit beside blazing Venus (the closest planet to Earth) as darkness falls. The pair will lie just a degree and a half apart, or a little more than the size of your pinky held at arm’s length. If you are an early riser, on the 22nd, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and the crescent moon will be putting on quite a display in the east-southeast sky about an hour before sunrise.
The full moon in March is on the 11th.
• Full Worm – March 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.
My crocuses are blooming and the buds are swelling! Spring isn’t far away. (note from Mare. Marney lives just north of Wash DC. I live in Baltimore. My crocuses are not up yet but tree buds are swelling. I see my Silver Maple tree from where I sit writing this and it’s buds are plump and red. Some of my daffodils are poking up a few inches. Been cold here the past few days, below freezing.)
