The Full Moon in March is called the Worm Moon and it’s a time to celebrate all things creepy crawly and earthy!
The name Worm Moon comes from the fact that as the ground begins to thaw and the soil becomes soft, worm activity increases and they begin to surface.
It’s a sign of the arrival of spring and new life.
So, why is it called the Worm Moon, you ask?
The moon in March is named after the earthworms, who come out of the ground during the warmer weather of spring.
This was also a time of year when indigenous peoples would gather the first plants and earthworms for food after a long winter.
For many cultures, the Worm Moon marks the beginning of spring, a time of new beginnings, growth, and renewal.
It’s a time to plant crops, start new projects, and clean out your home.
So, how do we celebrate the Worm Moon? Get ready to wiggle!
Plant seeds, start a compost pile, or simply enjoy the fresh spring air. It’s the season to put stuff in the ground. Veggies, flowers, herbs. Be careful not to dig through any worms!
Plant a worm bin. Give the worms in your garden a cozy new home by building a worm bin. They’ll help turn your kitchen scraps into rich compost for your plants.
So whether you’re a worm aficionado or just looking for a fun way to celebrate the arrival of spring, the Worm Moon is the perfect time to get a little squirmy!
Don’t be afraid to get a little dirt on your hands, and make some memories that are out of this world!
And remember, just like the earthworms, the Worm Moon is a valuable part of our calendar and a reminder of the changing seasons.Just remember to always handle the worms gently and release them back into their homes when you’re done.
Happy Worm Moon!
