March Full Moon
March 6, 2012 6 Comments
This Thursday is the full moon. It’s known by many names but I think Worm Moon describes it best. As we enter into a new season, the ground is beginning to soften and the earthworm is busy stirring up the ground. This also brings the robins back as well. It’s interesting to note that the last March full moon was a Super Moon. I didn’t realize that until the other day.
Usually the worms don’t move in this part of the world for at least another month. In March, the ground is still very much hard and frozen, but this year may be different. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
