According to the Farmer’s Almanac, 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.
This 1st full moon of spring, is a going to be beautiful and full of change. Be sure to put your crystals out to charge around 6pm tonight and bring them back in no later than 10am tomorrow morning so they don’t get damaged by the sun. If you don’t have a yard or outdoor area to put your crystals in, just place them in a window sill that receives the moonlight.
Happy full moon!
