On Sunday, March 12th, the Full Crow Moon in Virgo arrives in my time zone. However, your mileage may vary (especially because of Daylight Savings) – be sure to check for your local time HERE. Granted, most consider this the “Worm Moon” but a couple years ago, as I began creating graphics for Witchy Wednesdays, I found this blurb on the Farmers’ Almanac website. How could I resist using the name “Crow Moon” for March? *grin*
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.
Once again, I turned to the interwebz to see what this means for us astrologically. Here’s a snippet from an article over at Forever Conscious, called Intuitive Astrology: Full Moon March 2017 by Tanaaz. Be sure to check out the whole article – as always, there’s tons of great information in it.
The March 12th Full Moon falls in the earthy sign of Virgo. As the energy of this Full Moon lingers for the next two weeks, we are all going to enter into a time of self-healing.
Virgo is typically the sign associated with thinking. Deep thinking. Over thinking. Virgo thinking is often self-critical, however when channelled in the right way, Virgo thinking can be extremely enlightening.
Virgo is symbolised by the virgin. This does not mean that Virgo energy is weak, vulnerable and innocent, in fact it is the very opposite.
Virgo energy is warrior energy. It represents strength and inner power. Virgo doesn’t need a man by her side, she has the power and strength to rise up alone.
Virgo comes into her strength by tapping into that inner warrior that lives inside of the heart.
We all have Virgo energy inside of us, we all have Virgo somewhere in our natal astrology chart, so chances are we are all going to feel the feminine power and strength arising from this Full Moon.
It is time to enter into warrior mode. Gone are the days of feeling sorry for yourself or being the victim. Gone are the days of getting irritated by every challenge or setback that life has brought you so far. Gone are the days of resisting what the Universe is trying to show you.
It is time to step up. It is time to rise up and claim your power, to claim your self-worth and to find your true inner strength.
As tempting as it can be, this is not about rising up into warrior mode to head off to war.
Instead, this is about rising up by yourself and for yourself. This is about finding that inner strength so you can heal, repair, nourish and reflect in whatever way you need to.
We are often bombarded with the fact that we need other people to complete us or that we need other people to be all these things for us, but the reality is that we complete ourselves.
This Virgo Full Moon is going to be reminding us of all of that, and it is going to be reminding us that our true strength and power comes from within.
Last, but not least, here is the graphic I created for the occasion. This is the first time I’ve ever created an image like this with my photos – it’s a composite piece, using a full moon shot I took last March, and a crow picture I took a few days ago (from the cutting room floor of my latest Foto Friday). Bright Full Crow Moon in Virgo blessings to all!
