Full Worm Moon – March 30th

[From my friend Marney again – thanks, Marney! And a big  hurrah for the worms! One of my favorite species or family of species… indeed! ]
Hi everyone and Happy New Moon.  At the time of the new moon, the moon and the sun set about the same time. Now that we’re in Daylight Savings Time, that means about 7:15 pm. Yea! I relish the extra hour of light, but the full beauty of the night sky is later, too. When you look up to the western sky to see the new moon the next couple of evenings, the lunar sliver will be very close to Venus.
This is such an exciting time with all the new growth, especially since just a few weeks ago some of us wondered if winter would ever end and the eternal snows fade away. Interesting name for the March full moon because worms have been on my mind. The ground is so saturated, the worms have to surface just in order to breathe! They’re everywhere.
Full Worm Moon – March 30th 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.
Love from Marney
